2017年韩国加密货币交易所资金增长64倍

 

2018年1月1日,韩国金融监管服务机构(FSS)获得了2017年度加密货币交易所的存款数据。报告显示,截至2017年12月12日,存款余额为2.067万亿韩元(约19.5亿美元)。比2016年同期的322亿韩元(约3000万美元)增长64倍。而2014年和2015年该领域的存款总额则分别只有为25亿韩元(约合235万美元)和90亿韩元(合846万美元)。

据报道,这其中大约有1.4万亿韩元是通过国有银行(如韩国工业银行(IBK))存入,而通过商业银行的存款总额则为7430亿韩元。不过,大多数韩国加密货币交易所都使用商业银行,而非国有银行。Hithumb使用的是农协银行和新汉银行,Coinone使用的是农协银行,而Kobit则使用了新汉银行。

然而,也有一些新入场的机构选择使用商业银行,比如Upbit平台使用的就是韩国工业银行(IBK)。Upbit得到了Kakao公司的支持,该公司拥有韩国最受欢迎的聊天软件Kakao Talk。

报告指出,国有银行的存款额高于商业银行的原因,是因为去年8月开始的Upbit主要使用的虚拟账户在IBK。”Upbit目前公布了所有韩国加密交易所的24小时交易量的最大值。

民主党议员和国会众议院议员朴永进表示,虚拟货币投机过热可能会导致过度融资,近日提升资产损失风险。国民议会和金融机构正努力加强对交易所的管理和监督。

据报道,2017年8月朴永进曾提交了一份修改韩国电子金融交易法案的提议,建议为比特币提供监管框架,不过这份提案并未被采纳。

The South Korean government has for the first time obtained data of the total amount of fiat deposits made at cryptocurrency exchanges. At the end of last year, the amount of deposits was 64 times higher than in the previous year.

Koreans Deposited Over 2 Trillion Won

On January 1 the Korean Financial Supervisory Service (FSS) obtained data on deposits made at cryptocurrency exchanges for the year 2017. Sedaily reported:

The balance of deposits as of December 12 last year amounted to 2.067 trillion won [~USD$1.95 billion]. This is a 64-fold surge from 32.2 billion won [~$30.3 million] at the end of 2016. This is the first time that the total amount of deposits in the virtual money market has been confirmed.

The publication revealed that the total amount of deposits in 2014 was 2.5 billion won (~$2.35 million) and it was 9 billion won (~$8.46 million) in 2015.

State-Owned vs Commercial Banks

According to the news outlet, approximately 1.4 trillion won of the deposits went through state-owned banks, such as the Industrial Bank of Korea (IBK), while deposits totaling 743 billion won went through commercial banks last year.

Most major Korean cryptocurrency exchanges use commercial banks and not state-owned banks. Bithumb uses Nonghyup Bank and Shinhan Bank, Coinone uses Nonghyup Bank, and Kobit uses Shinhan Bank.

However, newcomer Upbit uses IBK. This exchange is backed by Kakao Corporation, which owns the country’s most popular chat app, Kakao Talk. The publication detailed, “The reason why the deposits through national banks are larger than commercial banks is that the virtual accounts that were mainly used in the Upbit business, [which] started from August last year, passed through IBK.” Upbit is now reporting the largest 24-hour trading volume of all South Korean crypto exchanges.

Lawmakers Look to Act Fast

Democratic Party lawmaker and a member of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly, Park Yong-jin, obtained the data above. He was quoted commenting, “the risk of losing assets will increase if there is a problem with the exchange due to excessive funding due to the overheating of virtual currency speculation,” adding that:

The National Assembly and the financial authorities are trying to strengthen the management and supervision of exchanges. We have to hurry.

In August, Park submitted a proposal to revise the Korean Electronic Financial Transaction Act to provide a regulatory framework for bitcoin, as news.Bitcoin.com previously reported. However, this bill has not been adopted.
