韩国监管部门更改加密货币账户规定

迫于加密货币货币持有者和投资者的舆论压力,韩国政府重新讨论了上周出台的加密货币新规。

最初的计划是银行停止发放虚拟账户,并安装政府授权的新的实名认证系统。这个新系统预计将在1月20日左右推出。

据悉,目前韩国银行已经放弃之前全面停止提供加密货币账户服务的决定。

据韩国《中央日报》(JoongAng Daily)报道,有关部门将允许客户在本月之内使用真实姓名开设加密货币交易账户。

上周,监管机构对该国6家主要银行进行了检查,以确保他们在虚拟账户服务方面履行了反洗钱义务。

韩国媒体MoneyToday报道称,虽然检查工作要到1月16日才能结束,但是有些银行迫于于金融当局压力和公众抗议,决定拒绝执行新规。

接着,监管机构通知了这6家银行,告知他们是否提供加密账户服务的决定与安装新的实名认证系统没有任何关系。因此,银行同意按计划安装新系统。韩国《中央日报》(JoongAng Daily)报道,韩国金融服务委员会(FSC)周日表示:

“在FSC发布有关反洗钱的指导方针后,银行将允许开设新的账户。”

South Korean banks have backtracked from their decisions to stop servicing cryptocurrency accounts as crypto investors protested and the government re-discussed its policy. The country’s 6 major banks have been told that they must follow through with the original plan and install the system that would end the anonymous trading of cryptocurrencies.

Banks U-Turned

South Korean banks have reportedly reversed their decisions to stop servicing cryptocurrency accounts. “They will stick to their initial plans to allow clients to open accounts for cryptocurrency transactions using their real names within the month,” Korea Joongang Daily reported.

The original plan has been for banks to stop issuing virtual accounts and install the new government-mandated, real-name identification system. From that point on, they would only issue real name accounts. This new system is expected to be introduced around January 20.

The news outlet detailed:

The country’s financial regulator has pushed banks to stop opening new accounts until they establish a way to verify that the accounts bear the real name of the customer, to prevent money laundering.

Last week, the regulators began inspecting the country’s 6 major banks to ensure they have fulfilled their anti-money laundering (AML) obligations with regard to virtual account services, as news.Bitcoin.com reported.

While the inspections will not conclude until January 16, some banks decided to pull out of servicing cryptocurrency accounts “due to strong pressure from financial authorities” and criticism that “banks are supporting virtual currency transactions,” Money Today described.

The regulators then informed the 6 banks that their decisions regarding whether to service crypto accounts do not have any bearing on their obligations to install the new real-name system. As such, banks agreed to install the new system as planned. The Korean Financial Services Commission (FSC) said Sunday, as reported by Korea Joongang Daily:

Banks will open new accounts after it [FSC] releases guidelines about avoiding money laundering.
