支付平台Square暂时撤回银行许可申请

据路透社报道,去年支付平台Square曾向联邦存款保险公司(后文简称FDIC)申请成为一家“实业贷款公司”。如果申请获批,Square就可以从非传统金融公司变成可以收取政府担保存款的金融平台。

而本周四,Square却宣布撤回这项申请,而且暂时没有提供再次提出申请的计划时间。不过,Square此前向犹他州金融监管部门提交的银行许可申请仍然有效。

今年年初,Square宣布全面推出比特币买卖专属app,不过纽约州并不属于该项服务范围。而就在取消FDIC申请的几周前,Square刚刚获得了纽约州金融服务办公室颁发的虚拟货币经营许可。

 

Payment process platform Square announced on Thursday it has withdrawn its regulatory banking licensing application. According to Reuters, the company applied with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp (FDIC) for a special “industrial loan company (ILC)” last year. If granted, the license would have allowed non-traditional financial firms (like Square) to collect government-insured deposits.

The Square rep also reported its separate ILC application with the State of Utah Department of Financial Institutions currently remains active,

Square did not provide an anticipated time frame for reapplying for the license with the FDIC at this time. The news of Square’s regulatory banking license application withdrawal comes just a few weeks after the company revealed it secured a virtual currency license from the New York State Department of Financial Services office. As previously reported, Square reported it is fully launched with the ability to buy and sell bitcoin through its mobile Cash app earlier this year but was not able to offer the service in New York state.
