巴克莱入局加密货币交易,创建数字资产团队

据报道,英国跨国投资银行及金融服务公司巴克莱(Barclays)正在考虑投入加密货币的机构投资热潮。

巴克莱任命Chris Tyrer领导数字资产项目

几个月前,巴克莱首席执行官Jes Staley排除了推出他们自己的虚拟货币交易业务的可能性。然而据报道,这家银行创建了一个“数字资产项目”,探索如何进入这个快速增长的市场。

巴克莱是世界上最大的银行之一,在全球拥有近12万员工,据称收益超21万亿英镑,其对于数字资产交易仍然持观望态度。高盛(Goldman Sachs)是第一批入场的大型机构参与者之一,用自有资金与客户交易大量合约。这个决定带动其他金融机构推出加密货币交易业务,但是巴克莱保持了冷静。

2018年5月,Stanley告诉一位股东,由于合规和监管问题,他对区块链技术持怀疑态度。但是银行正在探索加密货币。现在有外媒报道,该银行不是推出虚拟货币交易部门,而是正在探索如何开始交易数字货币。“数字资产项目”由前能源交易全球主管Chris Tyrer主持。

这个工作团队包括外汇和新生市场宏观策略主管Marvin Barth和首席技术官办公室高级主管及区块链技术专家Lee Braine。Braine最近在一次专访中对分布式账本技术做出评论:

区块链行业对于初创公司显然是巨大的机会。对于投资银行,由区块链带来的解决方案,例如分布式账本和智能合约,应该致力于满足企业规模架构的非功能性需求……不同银行实施可执行业务逻辑,在银行内部经常采用相似的方式。这里的机会是跨银行通用的可执行业务逻辑,分布式账本也许提供了一种潜在的实现方法。

巴克莱投身加密货币市场的机构竞赛

Stanley在5月发表评论后,巴克莱正在加强“数字资产项目”建设力度的新闻意味着,最终推出加密货币交易业务也许比预想更快。巴克莱加入了对更规范、安全和可预测的生态系统充满信心的机构投资者队伍。

数字资产的机构竞赛也许由高盛开始,但是摩根士丹利(Morgan Stanley)是一个更强大的竞争者,其之前透露计划为机构交易者、ICO和套利创建一项单独的业务。这比高盛或其他任何主要参与者都超前。

摩根大通(JPMorgan Chase)最近任命分布式账本技术(DLT)人才Oliver Harris担任区块链创始团队的加密战略负责人。首席执行官Jamie Dimon曾说比特币是“骗局”,但是因分布式账本技术的破坏式前景,他对其持相当开放的态度。

British multinational investment bank and financial services company Barclays is reportedly looking to join the cryptocurrency hype among institutional players.

Barclays Appoints Chris Tyrer to Lead Digital Assets Project

A few months ago, Jes Staley, Barclays CEO, ruled out launching their own virtual currency trading desk. However, the bank has reportedly created a “digital assets project” in which it will be figuring out how to approach the fast-growing market.

Barclays, one of the world’s largest banks with nearly 120,000 employees across the globe and reporting over £21,000 billion in revenue, has remained on the sidelines when it comes to the trading of digital assets. Goldman Sachs was one of the first large institutional players making a move by using its own money to trade with clients in a number of contracts. The decision saw other financial institutions making the move to launch cryptocurrency trading desks, but Barclays kept its cool.

In May 2018, Staley, told a shareholder that he remained skeptical of the technology because of compliance and regulatory issues, but that the bank was exploring the subject of cryptocurrencies. Now, it’s reported that instead of launching a virtual currency trading desk, the bank exploring how it can start trading digital currencies, reports the Financial News. The “digital assets project” will be run by Chris Tyrer, former global head of energy trading.

The working group includes Marvin Barth, head of FX and emerging markets macro strategy, and Lee Braine, a senior executive from the CTO office and expert on blockchain technology. Braine recently made comments about distributed ledger technology in an interview.

“There are clearly tremendous opportunities for startups in the blockchain space. For investment banking, blockchain-inspired solutions such as shared ledgers and smart contracts should aim to meet the enterprise-scale architectural non-functional requirements […] Different banks implement executable business logic, often operating in a similar way, within their bank. The opportunity here is for executable business logic common across banks, and shared ledgers may provide one potential way of achieving that.”

Barclays Joins Institutional Race for Cryptocurrency Market

News that Barclays is strengthening its “digital asset project” indicates that an eventual launch of a cryptocurrency trading desk may be sooner than one would expect after Staley’s comments in May. Barclays joins a group of institutional players who are gaining confidence in a more regulated, secure, and predictable ecosystem.

The institutional race for digital assets may have started with Goldman Sachs, but Morgan Stanley is a strong competitor after revealing their plan of creating a specific desk for institutional traders, ICOs, and arbitrage. This before Goldman Sachs or any of the other major players.

JPMorgan Chase has recently appointed DLT talent Oliver Harris to its blockchain initiatives team as Head of Crypto-Strategy. CEO Jamie Dimon once called Bitcoin a “fraud”, but he has been quite open to distributed ledger technology for its promise of disruption.
