立陶宛央行推出区块链初创企业监管沙盒

上周,立陶宛央行宣布将针对区块链初创企业推出一项全新的“监管沙盒”计划。

根据这项名为LBChain计划的要求,立陶宛央行将为相关初创企业设立专门的服务开发平台。这是沙盒模式的一个比较常见的形式,即监管机构会允许公司在监管机构的支持下,在有限的环境中测试金融产品。

立陶宛央行董事会成员Marius Jurgilas在一份声明中表示:

“区块链技术具有巨大的创新适应能力,对金融和公共部门的消费者都是有益的。使这项技术能够在受监管的环境下发展,将为我国提供特别有利的招商引资和人才引进机会,还会加快推进先进创新。”

该平台预计2019年正式推出,因此那些希望快速加入沙盒的公司可能不得不等待一段时间。来自立陶宛央行的声明显示,欧盟将出资支持该项目,但目前尚不清楚该经济体支持这一区块链项目的具体出资额是多少。

去年十月,立陶宛央行刚刚确定了其对首次数字代币发行(ICO)的政策。当时官员指出:“需要说明的是,在决定立陶宛共和国对特定ICO具体立法的适用范围和立法范围时,应当对相关ICO的条件进行分析和评估。”

The central bank of Lithuania has launched a new regulatory "sandbox" for startups working with blockchain.

Announced last week, the "LBChain" initiative will see the Bank of Lithuania set up a dedicated platform around the tech, through which companies can develop services (though these would be subject to some gatekeeping by central bank officials). It's a notable spin on the sandbox model, which sees institutions enabling firms to test financial products in a limited setting and under the auspices of regulators.

Marius Jurgilas, a member of the central bank's board, said in a statement:

"Blockchain technology has a tremendous adaptation potential for innovations conducive to consumers in both the financial and public sectors. Giving room to regulated development of this technology would provide our country with particularly favorable opportunities for investment and attraction of talents as well as acceleration of advanced innovations."

Those hoping to join the sandbox soon will have to wait, as the Bank of Lithuania is eyeing a 2019 launch of the platform. Support for it will include funding from the European Union, according to the central bank's statement, though it's unclear how much funding from the economic bloc will go toward funding the blockchain effort.

The move comes months after the Bank of Lithuania positioned its policy on initial coin offerings in October.

"It should be noted that, when deciding on the application and scope of specific legislation of the Republic of Lithuania for specific ICO, the conditions of the relevant ICO should be analysed and assessed," officials stated at the time.
