沙特:加密货币发展不成熟,暂不考虑进行监管

沙特阿拉伯政府公开表示他们暂时不会考虑比特币监管问题。在这样一个时期——大量的国家政府试图抑制这一数字货币的发展,也有不少政府小心翼翼尽量不卷入加密货币监管圈。然而,也有些国家希望能在这一问题上保持中立。沙特阿拉伯就是这样一个想要保持中立的国家。

市场不够成熟

近期,沙特阿拉伯金融监管部门的高级顾问在接受采访时表示,鉴于加密货币在经济和监管方面可能产生的影响,他们认为国内的加密货币市场还不够成熟。

另一位来自沙特阿拉伯央行(SAMA)的高级顾问Abdulmalik Al-Sheikh在阿比扎比金融技术会议中指出,加密货币不属于SAMA这个组织关注的监管范围。他说,加密货币还处于早期试验阶段,但他认为目前涉足这一领域并没有错。

他进一步强调了该国央行监控及评估加密货币影响力的方式。在他看来,至少还需要5年的时间加密货币才会产生真正的影响以及一套完整的运作模式。他说,一些主要的监管部门对ICO(initial coin offerings)这种通过虚拟货币发行来募集资金的方式采取的是“观望”态度。

纵观全世界,各个国家的监管部门对ICO和加密货币监管采取了不同的措施。举个例子,中国近期停止了所有ICO和加密货币交易所运作。除了中国,韩国也对ICO采取了“一刀切”的措施。不过日本则允许公司接受比特币这种支付方式。近期,阿布扎比宣布计划将ICO纳入监管。

从市值来看,比特币在众多加密货币中排名第一,并且其价格在今年多次创造新高。另外,全球对加密货币的兴趣逐渐高涨,但其中不乏有一些批评者的声音。比如说最近引起多方争论的摩根大通CEO Jamie Dimon就曾说比特币是骗局。

The Saudi Arabian government has openly come out to say it is not considering regulating Bitcoin in the country. At a time when a lot of national governments are trying to hem the digital currency from growing, others are being careful not to get involved in regulating cryptocurrencies. However, there are those that want to be neutral on the issue. Saudi Arabia is one of those countries that want to be neutral as far as the issue is concerned.

Market is Not Mature to Regulate Bitcoin and ICOs

Recently, a top advisor of the Saudi Arabia Financial regulator informed CNBC Sunday, how the cryptocurrency market in Saudi Arabia is not mature enough in assessing the influence that these cryptocurrencies may have on the economy and regulation.

Another top advisor, Abdulmalik Al-Sheikh of the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency (SAMA), noted how cryptocurrencies are not what SAMA as a body is focused on in regulating currently. According to him, it (cryptocurrency) is in its infant stage with trials and pilots everywhere. He didn’tconsider it as something strong in which there is anurgency to be part of at the moment. This comment came as a result of the FinTech event in Abu Dhabi.

He further highlighted how the country’s central bank is monitoring and measuring the impact of cryptocurrencies. For him, it could take additional five years before a real impact can be seen and the future operating model of the cryptocurrencies. According to him, key regulators are using the “wait and see approach” to initial coin offerings (ICOs). It is a medium for startups to acquire funds through a virtual coin issuing. Nevertheless, investors do not normally acquire equity stakes in a company when compared to those with an initial public offering (IPO). According to CoinSchedule, the industry’s website, this year alone, through the ICOs more than $3 billion has been raised.

Throughout the world, regulators have taken diverse approaches to ICO regulation and cryptocurrency. For instance, of late China banned all outlawed ICOs and cryptocurrency exchanges. Besides China, South Korea also proscribed ICOs. However, Japan, on the other hand, gave allowance to companies in accepting Bitcoin as a means of payment. Recently, Abu Dhabi announced the plans of bringing ICOs under regulation.

By market capitalization, Bitcoin is the largest cryptocurrency and have achieved a new record high with huge price rally this year. Across the board, the interest in cryptocurrencies is on the rise, though there has also been criticism from some quarters. Recently, the CEO of Jamie Dimon, JP Morgan Chase called Bitcoin a scam.
