瑞士政府部门对加密货币态度各有不同

瑞士股票交易所主席提倡发展“电子法郎”

近日,瑞士股票交易所主席Robert Lacher表示支持发展由瑞士中央银行支持的瑞士国家加密货币。

Lacher认为,发展一种由国家管理的加密货币将会有很多好处,并补充说瑞士股票交易所将“大力支持”任何能够帮助实现这种加密货币的举措。

瑞士央行认为“不需要”国家加密货币

不过,瑞士国家银行(瑞士中央银行)却认为“没有必要”开发这种国家加密货币,并补充说,现有的无现金和基于现金的支付系统运行流畅。

尽管Lacher本人非常看好这种由国家管理的加密货币,但这位主席声称其所在的这家股票交易所及其所有者SIX Group仍然不允许加密货币代币交易,不过仍然对区块链在商业运营中的潜力非常关注。

瑞士将自己定位为分布式账本技术的全球领导者

Lacher还表示支持瑞士政府将该国定位为分布式账本技术全球领导者,不过他也承认作为一种颠覆性现象的先驱所面临的风险。

Lacher表示,“我认为战略方向是很好的,但是前路迷雾重重。你不知道你在另一边会看到什么。我们会犯很多错误,但我们也会学到很多,我相信我们会成功的。”

上个月,在瑞士圣莫里茨举行的“加密金融会议”上,瑞士经济部长Johann Schneider-Ammann表示,瑞士应努力“成为加密国家”。在会议期间,Schneider-Ammann将虚拟货币描述为“第四次工业革命的一部分”,但他补充说现在决定加密货币是否需要监管“还为时过早”。

Swiss Stock Exchange Head Advocates Development of “E-Franc”

Robert Lacher, the head of Switzerland’s stock exchange, has spoken in favor of the development of a Swiss national cryptocurrency backed by the country’s central bank.

Mr. Lacher stated his belief that “there would be a lot of upsides” to developing a state-administered cryptocurrency, adding that the stock exchange “would be strongly supportive” of any initiative in favor of such.

“An e-franc under the control of the central bank would create a lot of synergies — so it would be good for the economy,” Mr. Lacher said, adding “I don’t like cash.”

Swiss Central Bank Sees “No Need” for National Cryptocurrency

The chairman described the hypothetical development of a national cryptocurrency as an excellent opportunity for Switzerland to extend its position as a leader in virtual currency innovation and adoption.

In response to Mr. Lacher’s comments, the Swiss National Bank issued a statement asserting that the bank sees “no need” to develop a national cryptocurrency, adding that existing cashless and cash-based payment systems are working smoothly.

Despite Mr. Lacher’s enthusiasm for a state-administered cryptocurrency, the chairman reasserted that the stock exchange and its owners, SIX Group, will not allow trading in cryptocurrency tokens. “We have actually no plans to admit trading of cryptocurrencies or ICOs. But we see a lot of advantages for blockchain across our businesses,” he said.

Switzerland Positions Itself as International Leader in Distributed Ledger Technology

Mr. Lacher also spoke in favor of the Swiss government’s policies designed to position the nation as a global leader in distributed ledger technology, however, acknowledged the risks associated with being a pioneering adopter of a disruptive phenomenon.

“I think the strategic direction is good, but it’s like going into fog,” Mr. Lacher said. “You don’t know what you will see on the other side. Many mistakes will be made, but we will also learn a lot and I am sure, we will be successful.”

Last month, The Swiss Economics Minister, Johann Schneider-Ammann, said that Switzerland should strive to “become the crypto-nation” whilst speaking at the Crypto Finance Conference in St. Moritz. During the conference, Mr. Schneider-Ammann described virtual currencies as comprising “part of the fourth industrial revolution,” but added that “It is too early” to determine if cryptocurrencies require regulatory oversight.
