俄央行考虑采用以太坊系统支持泛欧亚支付

据一名官员周二表示,俄罗斯中央银行正考虑使用Masterchain区块链软件在欧亚经济联盟(EAEU)上传输SWIFT金融信息。

在中央银行监管下成立的俄罗斯金融科技协会(Russia's FinTech Association)于2016年成功开展了一项对这款基于以太坊的软件的试验,并于2017年完成了其可用版本。

据俄罗斯新闻机构塔斯社报道,俄罗斯中央银行第一副行长Olga Skorobogatova表示:

“我们正在对此进行积极讨论,并且正在对多种优秀技术进行研究,包括Masterchain的技术。”

Skorobogatova解释到,我们正在更广泛的考察区块链如何为EAEU内的支付创造“超国家基础设施”,允许成员国“绕开”现有支付系统,在这样一个背景下,Masterchain也在我们的考虑之中。

该银行打算首先在俄罗斯境内运营其选择的平台,然后再在EAEU范围内全面推出该系统。

至于什么时候可能会对Masterchain做进一步审议,Skorobogatova表示:

“我认为我们会在今年上半年就这个项目的多种选择进行讨论。”

俄罗斯中央银行一直以来都积极参与到区块链和加密货币领域之中,并对后者采取了尤其严格的监管方式。2017年,该银行发布了关于加密货币投资风险的警告,同时支持封锁俄罗斯境内销售加密货币的网站。

The Central Bank of Russia is considering using its Masterchain blockchain software to transmit SWIFT financial messaging across the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), an official said on Tuesday.

Russia's FinTech Association, formed under the oversight of the central bank, successfully carried out a trial of the ethereum-based software in 2016 and completed a working version of it in 2017.

"An active discussion is underway, and we are looking into several quality technologies, including Masterchain," said Olga Skorobogatova, the Central Bank of Russia's first deputy chairman, according to Russian news agency Tass.

Skorobogatova explained that Masterchain is under consideration within the context of a broader examination of how the blockchain could create a "supranational infrastructure" for payments within the EAEU, allowing member states to "sidestep" existing payment systems.

The Bank intends to operate its platform of choice within Russia first, rolling it out later as an EAEU-wide system.

As for when further deliberation over Masterchain might take place, Skorobogatova remarked, "I think that we will discuss options regarding this project as early as this year."

The Central Bank of Russia has been actively involved in the blockchain and cryptocurrency space, and has taken a particularly strict approach to the latter. In 2017, it both issued warnings regarding the risks associated with crypto investments and backed efforts to block websites selling cryptocurrencies in the country.
