菲律宾致力打造亚洲的“加密谷”

菲律宾卡加延经济区管理局(CEZA)与Northern Star Gaming&Resorts Inc合作开发了一个名为Crypto Valley of Asia(CVA)的加密和金融科技中心。

这个中心,类似于瑞士楚格州的Crypto Valley Association(鸵鸟区块链注:加密谷协会是瑞士一家支持发展区块链和密码学相关的技术和商业活动的机构),坐落于在卡加延经济特区和自由港。该区域已经准备好容纳25个将在该区域内运营的加密公司。

CEZA行政总裁兼首席执行官Raul L. Lambino在官方新闻声明中评论中表示,CVA的建设将吸引更多的外国投资者和全球金融科技技术公司到CEZA和菲律宾进行投资。这将帮助该国成为金融科技和区块链相关工作的主要离岸目的地之一。

据报道,7月7日菲律宾中央银行Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas(BSP)宣布批准两家新的加密货币交易所提交的申请。

除此之外,菲律宾北部经济自由港区卡加延出口区管理局(CEZA)在7月27日发出了第三个金融科技解决方案和离岸虚拟货币(FTSOVC)临时执照,获得该许可的是Apsaras Group子公司总部位于香港的Liannet Technology Ltd.。

据悉,菲律宾卡加延经济区管理局(CEZA)计划通过颁发数字货币交易所营业许可证赚取6700万美元。

值得注意的是,8月2日菲律宾证券交易委员会(SEC)表示,它批准了初始硬币发行(ICO)规则草案,这将为菲律宾合法销售加密货币铺平道路。

菲律宾证券交易委员会主席Emilio Aquino表示,该草案将发布在菲律宾证券交易委员会网站上以征询公众意见。

Aquino说:“为了相关企业可以安全顺利的进行ICO,我们将为他们将为他们制定相关的政策,以监管Token或加密货币。”

The Philippines government is building Crypto Valley of Asia, a cryptocurrency and fintech hub similar to the one in the canton of Zug, Switzerland. The estate will be built at the Cagayan Special Economic Zone and Freeport in partnership with private property developer Northern Star Gaming & Resorts Inc. The zone is already set to accommodate 25 crypto firms that will operate within the area.

Building Crypto Valley of Asia

The Philippines government-owned Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (CEZA) has partnered with Northern Star Gaming & Resorts Inc. to develop a crypto and fintech hub called Crypto Valley of Asia (CVA).

This is “part of the government’s bid to foster a fintech ecosystem [to] attract international blockchain companies to set up shop in the country,” e27 reported Monday.

The publication elaborated:

The CVA will consist of a 25-shop housing development inside the cyberpark developed in compliance with the strict security requirements for licensed overseas virtual exchanges (OVEs) located in CEZA. It will include co-working and living spaces, business incubation and acceleration hubs as well as back offices of OVEs and service providers to the global crypto space.

CEZA administrator and CEO Raul L. Lambino commented in an official press statement that this infrastructure “will serve to attract more foreign investors and global fintech players to CEZA and the Philippines.” It will help the country “become one of the major offshoring destinations for fintech and blockchain related work.”

Recently, the authority announced that it has granted two licenses to cryptocurrency firms. Seventeen companies in the crypto space have already paid in full and the authority is expected to generate $68 million from licensing 25 crypto and fintech firms.

Generating Economic Boom

“The goal is for the CVA to generate an economic boom that will allow more Filipinos to pursue careers in technology,” e27 conveyed, adding that third-party business providers (BPOs) will bring employment to the area.

Northern Star has committed to investing $100 million over the next 10 years and has already secured funds from several international and regional companies that will be located within the CVA, the news outlet noted. Chairman Enrique Gonzalez commented:

Crypto Valley of Asia and CEZA will put the Philippines on the global map of fintech and blockchain. Similar to other progressive jurisdictions such as Zug of Switzerland, we will create an environment that fosters innovation, entrepreneurship and critical skills development thru education and BPO training.

He reiterated, “with strong global partners that have confirmed entry into our master-planned development, we are confident in the continued momentum in positioning the Philippines as the leading destination for blockchain offshoring.”
