韩国六大银行加密货币账户面临大检查

据韩联社报道,韩国金融情报部门和金融监督服务部门)正在对六大本地银行提供给加密货币交易所的相关账户展开调查,时间为本周一到周四。

面临检查的六家银行分别是友利银行、国民银行、新韩银行、农协银行、韩国兴业银行和韩国开发银行。前四家银行是韩国资产规模最大的银行,后两家是国有银行。

本次检查的重点是看几家银行是否在为本国交易所提供服务时遵守了相关强制性洗钱举报协议。韩国金融服务委员会高级官员估计,共有111个与加密货币交易相关的银行账户,估计共有2万亿韩元(18亿美元)的综合存款。报告摘录:“每个账户都被认为已经产生了数以百万计的虚拟账户。”

据CCN最近报道,韩国政府提议禁止所有比特币类似的加密货币匿名交易,继续打击洗钱和金融诈骗行为。比如,韩国政府曾在2017年12月下旬的声明中表示坚决反对这种罪行,并将对罪犯处最高刑罚,甚至在必要时关闭加密货币交易所。

按照新规要求,银行和加密货币交易所只能为同一账户名称的投资者进行交易,并且要求完全禁止匿名“虚拟账户”,遵守“了解客户”规范。该新规将于 2018年1月20日开始实施。

According to Korean publication Yonhap, South Korea’s Financial Intelligence Unit (KoFIU) and the Financial Supervisory Service (FSS) are jointly inspecting banking accounts provided to cryptocurrency exchanges in six major local banks.

The report cites a senior official from state regulator Financial Services Commission (FSC) in revealing that KoFIU – Korea’s watchdog for money laundering and terrorist financing, and the FSS – the financial watchdog under the FSC, will carry out an ‘intensive probe’ into accounts between Monday and Thursday this week.

The six banks under the scanner are Woori Bank, Kookmin Bank, Shinhan Bank, NongHyup Bank, Industrial Bank of Korea and Korea Development Bank. The first four banks are Korea’s largest banks by assets while the latter two are government-run banks.

Specifically, the two authorities will check if the banks have been compliant with obligatory money laundering reporting protocols after offering services to the country’s local exchanges. The senior FSC official estimated a total of 111 bank accounts related to cryptocurrency exchanges with an estimated 2 trillion won ($1.8 billion) in combined deposits. ‘Each account is presumed to have generated up to millions of virtual accounts’, an excerpt from the report added.

Further, the inspections coincide with a wider agenda of curbing fiat inflows into exchanges and even shutter cryptocurrency exchange operators evading recently mandated rules through loopholes, part of authorities’ ever-increasing scrutiny of cryptocurrency trading in Korea.

As reported by CCN recently, the Korean government moved to propose a ban on all anonymous trading of cryptocurrencies like bitcoin in an ongoing crackdown on money laundering and financial fraud. “We will…resolutely respond to such crimes by slapping maximum sentences possible on offenders,” the government said in a late December statement, adding that authorities would “leave all policy options open, including closure of a cryptocurrency exchange when deemed necessary.”

The new rules will only allow trading for investors with matching account names at their banks and cryptocurrency exchanges. The complete ban on anonymous ‘virtual accounts’, to comply with ‘know your customer’ norms, is set to commence on January 20, 2018.
