IMF呼吁国际各界在加密货币问题上加强合作

近日,国际货币基金组织发言人Gerry Rice表示,希望国际各监管机构在加密货币问题上展开更为紧密的讨论和合作。

Rice补充称,每当资产价格过快膨胀的时候,风险总是也跟着水涨船高,特别是假如市场参与者们纷纷借钱入市的话。投资者们应该充分认识到风险,并采取必要的风险管控举措,这很重要。

这位发言人强调,加密货币可能造成投资者大量亏损,并且可能被用于洗钱、为恐怖分子融资、逃税、欺诈等非法用途。

IMF之前就已经呼吁针对加密货币出台监管法规了。该机构总裁拉加德(Christine Lagarde)去年9月份曾称,加密货币可能成为由政府发行的传统货币的竞争对手,无视加密货币是不明智的。

她补充道,加密货币会是颠覆性的大事件,并提醒央行和金融机构要更加密切地关注加密货币及其背后技术——区块链。

就在IMF发声之前,美国财政部长姆努钦(Steven Mnuchin)上周刚刚宣布美国金融稳定监管委员会(Financial Stability Oversight Council)已经组建了一个工作小组,专门与美国其他监管部门对话,这个工作小组非常非常留意加密货币。姆努钦说,美国监管者希望确保罪犯无法利用加密货币来办坏事。

 

The International Monetary Fund (IMF), an organization of the United Nations that aims to foster global monetary cooperation and financial stability, has called for global coordination on cryptocurrencies, warning of the risks of surging cryptocurrency prices.

According to a Bloomberg report, IMF spokesman Gerry Rice said late last week there is a need for "greater international discussion and cooperation among regulators."

Rice added:

"When asset prices go up quickly, risks can accumulate, particularly if market participants are borrowing money to buy. It's important for people to be aware of the risks and take the necessary risk-management measures."

The spokesman also stressed that cryptocurrencies pose dangers beyond investors' losses, and can potentially be used for money laundering, terrorist financing, tax evasion and fraud.

Previously, the IMF has advocated a balanced approach on cryptocurrency regulation. Christine Lagarde, managing director of the organization, said in September of 2017 that cryptocurrencies may give traditional government-issued currencies a "run for their money" and it is "not wise" to ignore them.

She added that cryptocurrencies would bring "massive disruptions" and warned that central banks and financial services need to pay closer attention to the technology.

The latest statements from the IMF come after U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said last week that the Financial Stability Oversight Council has formed a working group to carry out discussion with other U.S. regulators. The group is "very focused" on cryptocurrencies, he said at the time.

"We want to make sure that bad people cannot use these currencies to do bad things," Mnuchin added.
