欧盟表示不急于监管加密货币,等全面评估后再做决定

据彭博社报道,欧盟成员国财政部长9 月7 日在维也纳会议期间一致认为,他们不会急于采取措施进一步规范加密货币市场,他们将等待欧洲当局全面的监管评估结果出来后,再决定应该采取何种措施。

爱尔兰财政部长Paschal Donohoe向记者表示:

对于该领域,欧盟将谨慎行事。

今年早些时候金融稳定委员会(Financial Stability Board)曾表示,加密货币目前不会对金融体系构成威胁。欧盟官员们对这个观点也赞同这个观点。

从中国的监管收紧,到日本对交易所的审查力度加大,全球的监管机构正在采取措施控制近年来最大规模的投资狂潮之一。欧盟决策者已经在采取行动提高市场透明度,然而却没有出台保护投资者和传统金融企业免受加密市场风险的监管条例。

德国财长Olaf Scholz表示,维也纳的讨论旨在让每个人都能理解这项挑战,并确保决策者明白应该采取的监管力度。Olaf Scholz 补充道:

很明显,我们不应该等太久。

ICO是一种可行的融资替代方案

据coindesk9月11日报道,欧盟委员会副主席东布罗夫斯基斯(Valdis Dombrovskis)上周五在新闻发布会上表示,欧盟成员国对制定该地区加密货币行业监管框架表示支持。Valdis Dombrovskis说道:

我们还就加密资产进行了很好的意见交流,我们看到加密资产将继续存在。尽管最近出现了动荡,但是这个市场仍在继续增长。

此外,他表示首次代币发行(ICO)有可能成为一种可行的融资替代方案。他说:

去年,ICO已经筹集了超过60亿美元的资金,今年这个数字将会大幅增加。

Valdis Dombrovskis说,为了充分利用这一潜力,目前面临的挑战是如何对加密资产进行分类,以及欧盟是继续沿用现有的金融市场管理规则,还是为加密货币制定一套专门的监管框架。他说:

在这种情形之下,我们正与欧洲监管机构合作,研究加密货币的监管规划,以找到这些问题的答案。这将为该领域进一步措施的制定提供坚实基础。

今年二月份,这位欧盟委员会副主席曾对ICO做出了积极评价,说这是一种创新的融资方式。他当时表示,监管机构将采取逐案处理的方式来监管代币项目。不过他承认,在这方面欧盟委员会还有更多的工作需要做。

The European Commission, the executive body that proposes legislation for the EU, will this year conclude a regulatory assessment for the governance of crypto assets, because they are "here to stay," a high-level has official said.

Speaking at a press conference after a meeting of the Economic and Financial Affairs Council last Friday, Valdis Dombrovskis, vice president of the European Commission, said member states are supportive of moves to chart regulations governing the cryptocurrency industry in the economic region.

Dombrovskis said:

"We also had a good exchange of views on crypto-assets. We see that crypto-assets are here to stay. Despite the recent turbulence, this market continues to grow."

Further, he suggested that initial coin offerings (ICOs) have the potential to become a viable form of alternative financing. "Already last year, ICOs helped raise over $6 billion in funding and this year this figure will be substantially bigger," he said.

To make the most of this potential, Dombrovskis said the challenge right now is how to "categorize and classify" crypto assets and whether the EU should use existing financial market rules or create a set of dedicated regulations for cryptocurrencies.

"In this context, we are currently working together with European Supervisory Authorities on what we call regulatory mapping of crypto assets to answer exactly these questions," he said. "This will provide a solid ground to build on and to decide on further steps in this area."

Dombrovskis has previously made positive remarks on ICOs as an innovative fundraising method, as reported by CoinDesk in February. He indicated at the time that regulators would take more of a case-by-case approach to govern specific token projects, although he conceded more work would need to be done by the commission.

And he isn't the lone ICO-friendly lawmaker in the EU. Last Friday, a Member of the European Parliament suggested a new rule governing ICOs that would place an upper cap on token sale proceeds, but would also make eligible projects accessible across EU member states.
