智利加密货币交易所呼吁政府透明监管

目前,智利加密货币交易所正在努力争取在本地银行开设账户的权利,以便更好地为客户提供服务。BUDA和Crypto MKT两家交易所表示,当地银行负责人告诉他们,已经接到了相关指示,要求银行不能为任何与加密货币有关的人开立账户。

这两家交易所已经发表了联合公开声明,其中表示:

“由于缺乏行业知识,也没有明确的监管,导致一些银行恐惧加密货币,并采取了一些错误战略,拒绝向任何与数字资产有关的人提供服务。在智利,监管权掌握在少数人手中,但他们选择了全面禁止加密货币业务。”

此外,这两家交易所还呼吁智利银行业协会(Asociación de Bancos e Instituciones Financieras or ABIF)需要表达更透明的立场,并提醒公众和当局需要尽快关注加密货币问题,否则就“太迟了”。

为了向银行展示合规性,BUDA和Crypto MKT两家交易所强调,他们已经利用最新技术开发了“最安全的交易平台”,也开发了与监管机构合作的渠道。不仅如此,他们还表示已经向智利财政部进行了注册登记,并且遵守反洗钱和反恐怖主义融资等监管要求。

Two cryptocurrency exchanges from Chile have called on the country’s baking association (Asociación de Bancos e Instituciones Financieras or ABIF) to issue a clear position regarding the new industry. The companies took this step after a number of Chilean banks reportedly shut down their accounts just for dealing with cryptocurrencies.

Banks Taking the Law Into Their Own Hands

Chilean cryptocurrency exchanges are fighting for their right to open a bank account in the country in order to serve clients who are switching over from fiat. BUDA and Crypto MKT have condemned the closing of their local banking accounts and said that a bank representative told them that they had instructions to “not open an account for anyone that has relation to cryptocurrencies “.

The two companies made a joint public statement warning that: “The lack of knowledge and regulatory clarity has given rise to the fact that some banks, out of fear, misinformation or perhaps by strategy, are refusing to provide their services to anyone who has any relationship with any digital asset.” Adding that “in Chile the regulation is in the hands of a few, who are acting as de facto regulators and are opting to prohibit.”

BUDA and Crypto MKT called on ABIF to “make its position transparent” and to define whether companies linked to cryptocurrencies will have access to banking services, or if the banks “are determined to prevent the existence” of the young industry. In addition, the exchanges called for both the authorities and the public to pay attention to the issue, “before it’s too late.”

Exchanges Play By the Rules

To showcase how they are not a possible legal risk to the banks, the two exchanges highlighted that they “have developed safe platforms of the latest technology for the protection of their customers and have opened channels of collaboration with authorities”, in addition to explaining to the public the characteristics, advantages and risks of trading these type of assets. Both firms, they add, pay taxes, are registered with the relevant Chilean financial authorities, and follow standard prevention of money laundering and anti-terrorist financing guidelines.

Banks preventing exchanges from opening accounts is a problem in many places around the world, but legal victories are possible. Last month the Supreme Court of Israel issued a temporary injunction order forbidding the country’s Bank Leumi from sweepingly halting the account activity of the Bits of Gold bitcoin exchange.
