日本银行巨头三菱UFJ计划推出加密货币保护服务

据《日经亚洲评论》报道,日本三菱UFJ信托银行正在准备推出一种服务,可以在加密货币交易所倒闭或被黑之后保护加密货币持有者。

这家银行巨头将持续匹配那些选择这项服务的加密货币交易所客户的记录。如果该交易所倒闭或受破坏,三菱UFJ将根据客户保存的记录赔偿客户的损失。

日经报道称,该服务将首先覆盖比特币交易,最早将于明年四月推出。选择通过三菱UFJ来保护自己资金的加密货币交易所用户将需要支付一定的服务费用。

不过,东京交易所Bitbank首席执行官Noriyuki Hirosue断言,对于那些更愿意信任传统金融机构的人来说,这笔费用应该很容易接受:

“客户知道信托银行正在管理他们的资产,会感到安心。”

日本加密货币投资者对于使用加密货币交易所的风险特别敏感——主要是有日本加密货币交易所Mt.Gox这个前车之鉴,该交易所在被黑客窃取850,000个比特币之后于2014年宣布倒闭。

日本如今已经成为加密货币投资和监管的领导者。日经报道,日本金融服务局(FSA)预计将会在2018年4月份认可加密货币可以作为资产进行托管。

Japan’s Mitsubishi UFJ Trust and Banking is preparing to launch a service that will protect cryptocurrency holders if the exchanges they use shut down or are hacked, reports Japan-based online publication Nikkei Asian Review.

The banking giant will keep matching records from cryptocurrency exchanges of customers who opt-in for the scheme. In the event the exchange fails or is compromised, Mitsubishi UFJ will compensate its clients for their losses according to the records they maintain.

Nikkei reports that the service will start with Bitcoin trading and could launch as early as April. Crypto exchange users who opt-in to have their funds protected by the Mitsubishi UFJ will be charged a fee for the service.

However, as CEO of Tokyo-based exchange Bitbank Noriyuki Hirosue asserts, the extra fee may be an easy price to pay for those who prefer to trust traditional financial institutions:

"customers will feel peace of mind knowing that a trust bank is managing their assets."

Japanese cryptocurrency investors are arguably especially sensitive to the risks of using crypto exchanges -- major Japan-based cryptocurrency exchange Mt. Gox infamously shut down in 2014 after hackers stole 850,000 of its customers’ bitcoins.

Japan is well-known as a global leader in cryptocurrency investment and regulation. Nikkei reports that Japan’s Financial Services Agency is set to recognize cryptocurrencies as assets that can be placed in trust by April 2018.
