日本MUFG银行将推出加密货币交易所

比特币交易在日本已经成为新的主流,大型金融公司为了保住自己的市场份额,纷纷开始提供相关服务。

MUFG交易所

三菱日联金融集团(MUFG)是世界上第四大银行,他们计划在本财年推出自己的加密货币交易所。据当地媒体报道,MUFG已经告知日本金融厅(JFSA)这一计划。

早前,该银行已经因为研究发行自己的加密货币而广为人知。现在看来,他们推出交易所是为了交易MUFG币。该银行能够防止MUFG币价格出现大幅波动,因此它就能用于购物、结算以及汇款。这种新的加密货币与日元挂勾,即一个MUFG币等于1日元,但其总量不是固定的,这样就能避免受到日本有关发行和转移这类私有货币规定的影响。

虽然MUFG只希望其代币能够用于稳定交易,但一旦这种加密货币上线,交易者很可能会开拓其他用途。其中一种有意思的应用就是替代USDT在无法币交易所成为交易对,毕竟有大型银行支撑,和Tether公司不同。

比特币独立账户

据报道,该银行还计划为日本加密货币交易者提供另一项服务——MUFJ信托,客户可以把资金存在这类账户中,这类账户与交易所相连,但客户的资金不会被交易所控制。这项服务与保护外汇交易者的分离账户类似,通过这种方式银行能够保管用户资金,防止交易所被盗或破产所造成的风险。这项服务还会监控账户的可疑活动以及不寻常交易,银行会对这类活动进行标记,并且暂时不会处理交易。

目前这项服务仅针对比特币,预计在今年4月或者在JFSA承认比特币是资产之后才会开启。这将是首个针对加密货币的信托,MUFG也已经为此申请专利保护。MUFJ信托服务将会收取费用,但东京交易所Bitbank的CEO Noriyuki Hirosue说“有银行管理他们的资产,用户应该会感到很放心”。

As bitcoin trading becomes the new mainstream in Japan, leading financial firms are stepping in to offer services to preserve their market share. MUFG, the largest bank in the country, is now planning to launch its own exchange, a pegged cryptocurrency and bitcoin segregated accounts for clients of other exchanges.

MUFG Exchange and Pegged Coin

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Inc. , the fourth largest bank in the world, plans to launch its own cryptocurrency exchange this financial year. According to reports from the country, MUFG has already notified the Financial Services Agency (JFSA) on the decision to launch an exchange.

The bank is known to be working on issuing its own cryptocurrency. The plan as it seems now is that by controlling the exchange where people can trade this MUFG Coin, the bank could suppress drastic fluctuations in its price so it can be used for shopping, settlements and remittances stably. The idea is that the new cryptocurrency will be kept pegged at around JP¥1, but not fixed in advanced so as to bypass regulations regarding issuing and transmitting such private money in Japan.

Needles to say, while MUFG only envisions its coin used to make stable transactions in Japan, once the cryptocurrency will be out in the wild global traders can use it for other uses as well. One interesting application is for it to be used in trading pairs on non-fiat exchanges instead of USTD, backed by the largest bank in Japan instead of Tether.

Bitcoin Segregated Accounts

The bank is reportedly working on another service for Japanese cryptocurrency traders, MUFJ Trust – will keep client holdings in accounts which can link to exchanges but without sending the money to their control. Similar to how segregated accounts are used to protect forex traders, this can safeguard client funds at the bank in case the trading company is hacked or goes bankrupt. The service will also monitor accounts for suspicious activity and uncommon transactions, which could get flagged for inspection instead of being processed.

The service, which will be available just for bitcoin at first, is expected to launch in April 2018 or as soon as the JFSA recognizes bitcoin as an asset that can be placed in a trust. This will be the first ever trust arrangement for cryptocurrencies, according to its application for patent protection. Enjoying the protection of MUFJ Trust’s would cost a fee, but “customers will feel peace of mind knowing that a trust bank is managing their assets,” said CEO Noriyuki Hirosue of Tokyo-based exchange Bitbank.
