欧盟表示必要时将对比特币实施监管

欧盟有关部门本周一表示,如果与数字代币相关风险未得到解决,其愿意介入并管理加密货币。

路透社援引欧盟官员的一份报告称,去年和2018年比特币疯狂的价格变动在给一些企业带来巨大损失的同时也为一些企业带来了巨大收益。

欧盟委员会副主席瓦尔迪斯·邓布罗夫斯基斯告诉记者:

“这是一个全球性的现象,重要的是在全球范围内有一个国际性的后续行动。 例如,如果风险出现后没有明显的国际反应,我们并不排除在欧盟一级推进(通过管理加密货币)的可能性。”

路透社2月早些时候指出,德国和法国都表示加密货币将同时为投资者带起全新机遇与巨大潜在风险,如果不采取保护措施,这些数字代币很有可能受到犯罪分子的操纵。

但是,由于加密货币仅代表全球金融体系的一小部分,因此欧洲尚未就如何进行监管达成共识。还有一个真正的担忧是,如果政策制定者在加密货币上打压得太快,可能会导致政府愿意接受数字代币相关领域的失业和增长缺失。

与此同时,欧洲议会中右翼议员Markus Ferber告诉路透社,为了确保散户投资者不受到市场操控和欺诈行为的影响,欧盟应该尽快在监管方面有所动作,而不是等待有关加密货币的规则慢慢出现。

 

The European Union (EU) announced news on Monday (Feb. 26) that it’s willing to step in and regulate cryptocurrencies if the risks associated with digital tokens aren’t addressed.

According to a report in Reuters, citing officials from the European Union, the wild price movements of bitcoin last year and into 2018 has resulted in huge losses for some and big gains for others.

“This is a global phenomenon, and it’s important there is an international follow-up at the global level,” European Commission VP Valdis Dombrovskis told reporters. “We do not exclude the possibility to move ahead (by regulating cryptocurrencies) at the EU level if we see, for example, risks emerging but no clear international response emerging.”

Reuters noted earlier in February that both Germany and France said cryptocurrencies offer new opportunities as well as the potential for big risks to investors. The countries also said digital tokens could be vulnerable to manipulation by criminals if safeguards aren’t introduced.

However, because cryptocurrency only represents a tiny part of the financial systems around the globe, there hasn’t been a strong consensus in Europe about how to regulate it. There’s also a real fear that if policymakers clamp down too quickly on cryptocurrencies, it could result in a loss of jobs and growth to other areas where the government is more accepting of digital tokens. Dombrovskis, for his part, believes cryptocurrencies hold a lot of promise.

Meanwhile, Markus Ferber, a center-right European Parliament member, told Reuters he believes the EU needs to respond quickly with regulation instead of waiting for rules to slowly come about regarding cryptocurrencies.

“In order to make sure that retail investors do not fall prey to market manipulation and fraud, virtual currencies should be regulated as other financial instruments,” Ferber said in a statement.
