黎巴嫩央行有意发行政府支持的加密货币

近日,黎巴嫩中央银行(BDL)行长Riad Salame在贝鲁特的一次会议上表示,该国政府正在研究政府支持的加密货币。

汤森路透(Thomson Reuters)旗下Zawya新闻网从黎巴嫩日报《每日星报》(The Daily Star)转载报道,引用了黎巴嫩央行行长Riad Salame的发言。

Salame说,他认为“数字货币将在未来发挥重要作用......但是在实施之前,BDL必须首先做出必要的安排,并开发出能够防范网络犯罪的保护系统。此外,特别调查委员会将与银行业监管委员会合作,增强电子犯罪防范能力。”

据了解,新的数字货币将被纳入黎巴嫩法律,并受到BDL监管,但Salame行长并未说明新的数字货币将如何在黎巴嫩实施。

除此之外,Salame也对比特币这种全球最流行的加密资产发表了评论。他表示反对在黎巴嫩使用比特币,因为比特币尚未受到适当监管,可能对消费者和支付系统构成了巨大威胁。因为这些(加密资产)不是货币,而是一种商品,且其价格的上涨和下跌毫无根据。出于这个原因,BDL禁止在黎巴嫩市场使用这种资产。”

Salame表示,未来黎巴嫩政府将会发行本国专有的数字货币。而中央银行金融体系的目标是确保国家货币的稳定性,并保护黎巴嫩经济。

尽管BDL行长清楚地认识到像比特币这样的资产对使用者构成了威胁,但他认为这些资产并不会挑战国家法定货币的地位。据《每日星报》报道,Salame先生相信“由于BDL持有435亿美元外汇储备,比特币不会对黎巴嫩镑构成威胁”。

此外,BDL官员曾于2013年发布了关于比特币和加密资产问题的声明,提出数项警告和禁令。比特币世界的使用者对此已不陌生。

 

 

Lebanon Readies for an Electronic Currency Future

Thomson Reuters’ Zawya reprinted from The Daily Star, a Lebanese daily, quoting Banque Du Liban Governor, H.E. Mr. Riad Salamé, head of Lebanon’s central bank.

Mr. Salamé said he understands “that electronic currency will play a prominent role in the future.”

The governor was speaking at a Beirut Corporate Social Responsibility conference, sponsored in part by BDL.

“But BDL must first make the necessary arrangement before taking this step,” he continued, “and develop [a] protection system from cybercrime. Both the Special Investigation Commission and Banking Control Commission are cooperating to prevent such electronic crimes,” The Daily Star reports the governor as saying.

Mr. Salamé expanded on the idea of a future state-backed digital currency. The article paraphrases the central bank head’s proposal, “the new digital currency will fall under Lebanese law and be monitored by BDL. But the governor did not give any indication how the new currency would be introduced in Lebanon.”

The BDL governor commented on the issue of the world’s most popular cryptocurrency, bitcoin, reiterating “his opposition to the use of bitcoin in Lebanon because it is not well regulated,” The Daily Star summarized. According to the article, the central bank head also remarked “bitcoin and similar currencies are a big threat to the consumer and payment systems.”

“These [cryptocurrencies] are not currencies but rather a commodity whose prices rise and fall without any justification,” Mr. Salamé warned. “For this reason, BDL has banned the use of this currency in the Lebanese market.”

Returning to the issue of a state-backed cryptocurrency, he forecasts that a “digital currency will be issued by BDL and will be available in the next few years.”

The objective of the financial architecture of the Central Bank aims to secure the stability of the national currency and protect the Lebanese economy.

Though the BDL head clearly feels currencies such as bitcoin are a threat to users, he does not feel the same way with regard to such currencies challenging the nation’s fiat paper. Mr. Salamé is reported to believe “there is no threat against the Lebanese pound thanks to the $43.5 billion in foreign reserves held by BDL,” The Daily Star asserts.

“The objective of the financial architecture of the Central Bank aims to secure the stability of the national currency and protect the Lebanese economy,” he assured.

The only other statement made by a BDL official on the issue of bitcoin and cryptocurrencies was made in 2013. It contained all the usual warnings and prohibitions long familiar to bitcoiners around the world.
