日本金融厅或将处罚多个加密数字货币交易所

据报道,日本监管部门计划打击部分加密货币交易所,向其中的几家出具“行政处罚通知”并暂停其业务。

几个星期之前,日本加密货币交易所Coincheck被盗,日本金融厅(FSA)经过了对各家交易所的消费者保护以及反洗钱流程进行调查之后得出了本次处理方案。

其中有几家交易所的流程存在漏洞,也就是说他们可能有洗钱的嫌疑或者无法保障客户资金的安全。

然而,具体的处罚措施是什么以及哪些交易所会收到这一通知目前还是未知。

不过Coincheck很可能会收到整改通知要求提升其系统标准,这将是这家交易所第二次收到此类通知。

FSA从几个星期之前开始对交易所展开调查,评估了他们的风险管理以及加密货币存储方案等方面的能力,但这一调查的结果尚未公开。

该监管部门同时调查了持牌以及无证的交易所,要求他们主动上报其安全协议。上月,FSA对15家未获授权的交易所展开了调查。

自从Coincheck承认其数字钱包丢失价值近5亿美元的新经币(NEM)之后,FSA就开始对日本的加密货币交易所展开了严格的调查。

在遭受本次攻击之前,Coincheck并未获得FSA颁发的许可证。

Japanese authorities are reportedly preparing to crack down on cryptocurrency exchanges by issuing "administrative punishment notices" to several and suspending others from doing business.

The move, which comes a few weeks after Japanese cryptocurrency exchange Coincheck was hacked, is a response to the country's Financial Services Agency discovering issues with exchanges' customer protection and anti-money laundering procedures, according to Nikkei.

Specifically, Nikkei reports that several exchanges had flawed processes, meaning they may allow money laundering or fail to ensure customers' funds remain safe.

It is unclear what exactly the punishments will be or which exchanges will receive the notices, according to Reuters.

That being said, Coincheck at least will likely receive a notice to raise its system's standards, Nikkei reported, which would be the second time it would be told to do so.

The FSA investigated exchanges to evaluate their risk management and cryptocurrency storage methods over the last few weeks, but the results of these investigations have not been released.

The regulator looked into both licensed and unlicensed exchanges, asking them to self-report their security protocols. Last month, it inspected 15 unlicensed exchanges, as previously reported.

The FSA's efforts to more stringently regulate Japan's cryptocurrency exchanges started after Coincheck admitted to losing roughly 500 million NEM tokens from its digital wallets.

Prior to the hack, Coincheck had been operating as an unlicensed exchange.
