日本银行巨头SBI再次推迟上线加密货币交易所

在周二的一份声明中,SBI表示尽管这个新的加密货币交易所平台——SBI Virtual Currencies——已经开始向某些优先投资者提供帐户注册,他们将推迟接受来自普通客户的申请,从而推迟交易的开始日期。

在简要解释其延迟的原因时,该平台表示需要更多时间“进一步加强安全措施”,并确定如何管理资产托管,并最终确定客户管理系统。

这一声明标志着日本首个由银行支持的加密货币交易所启动必将经历一个漫长过程。

根据Coindesk报道,SBI关于建立SBI Virtual Currencies的计划于2016年10月首次公开,并且在2017年9月在日本金融服务管理局(FSA)完成了商业登记。

然而,在去年12月,该公司推迟了接受公众注册的时间表。

尽管上述安全担忧可能与此无关,但最近的一次拖延也发生在日本金融服务管理局(FSA)加强对日本加密货币交易所(尤其是在安全问题上)的审查之后不久,原因是日本最近发生了一起黑客袭击事件。

2018年1月26日,日本加密货币交易所Coincheck宣布被盗,损失了大约价值5.3亿美元的NEM,这一事件导致FAS展开了一项调查,并要求日本所有加密货币交易所提高安全性。

Japanese banking giant SBI Group has again postponed the launch of its new cryptocurrency exchange, citing a need to boost security measures.

In an announcement Tuesday, SBI said that, while the new platform - called SBI Virtual Currencies - has already started offering account registrations to certain priority investors, it will postpone applications from ordinary customers and thus push forward the date for the start of trading.

In a brief explanation of the reasons for its delay, the platform said it will need more time to "further strengthen security measures," as well as determine how to manage asset custody, and finalize its customer management system.

The announcement marks the latest update in what has been a rather lengthy move toward the launch of Japan's first bank-backed cryptocurrency exchange.

As reported by CoinDesk, SBI's plan to establish SBI Virtual Currencies was first made public in October 2016 and completed business registration with Japan's Financial Services Agency (FSA) in September 2017.

Yet, in December of last year, the firm postponed its schedule for accepting account registrations from the general public.

While the stated security concerns may not be related, the latest delay also comes soon after the FSA increased its scrutiny over Japan's cryptocurrency exchanges - especially regarding security issues - as a result of a recent hack in the country.

On Jan. 26, the Coincheck exchange announced that some $530 million-worth of NEM tokens had been stolen, an event that led to an FSA investigation and demands for improved security across all crypto exchanges.
