瑞士初创公司SEBA筹集1亿美元欲建立加密银行

据Coindesk 9月27日报道,瑞士初创公司SEBA Crypto AG已筹集1亿瑞士法郎,为公司和投资者提供加密货币服务,同时将传统银行服务扩展到加密行业。

SEBA表示,他们将为加密货币行业的公司提供传统的银行服务,并为有意进入这一领域的机构提供加密货币交易、资产管理和托服务。

该集团表示正在向瑞士金融市场监管局(FINMA)寻求银行和证券交易商许可证,以为银行和合格投资者管理加密货币交易。

据悉,FINMA已经确认了许可程序,并正在审批中。如果获得批准,SEBA将开通加密货币和传统金融服务为一体的在线实体银行。

瑞银(UBS)前外汇和货币市场全球主管兼现任SEBA主席的Andreas Amschwand在公告中说道:“在瑞士,我们已经得到了很多部门的承诺,为区块链技术的发展和加密货币资产的可持续稳定增长建立一个全面的监管环境。这使瑞士成为一个推出新兴金融服务的理想地。”

据鸵鸟区块链了解,高盛支持的加密货币钱包和投资平台Circle也正在向联邦政府申请注册成为美国持牌银行,以便在美国50个州向加密货币经纪公司和交易提供服务。

除此之外,近日在莫斯科交易所举行的一次闭门会议上,几家俄罗斯大型银行表达了对加密货币和区块链行业的强烈兴趣。

9月24日消息,Ripple一直希望能够在跨境支付行业里取得突破性进展,最近他们宣布与沙特阿拉伯国家商业银行(National Commercial Bank in Saudi Arabia)达成了合作伙伴关系,也标志着他们正式进军沙特阿拉伯市场汇款支付市场。

沙特阿拉伯国家商业银行是沙特阿拉伯第一家银行,也是目前中东地区最大的金融机构之一。该行旗下有400多家分支机构,资产排名在中东市场位列第二,全球范围内客户数量超过540万,还拥有世界上最大的伊斯兰银行Turkiye Finans的大部分股份。

A Swiss startup launched by several former UBS bankers has raised 100 million Swiss francs, or around $104 million, in a bid to establish a regulated cryptocurrency bank.

Called SEBA Crypto AG (SEBA) and based in the Crypto Valley Zug, the startup said on Thursday it had secured the funds from domestic and foreign institutional and private investors, including BlackRiver Asset Management and Summer Capital.

With the investment, SEBA said it will develop and offer traditional banking services to firms in the crypto industry and to also provide cryptocurrency trading, asset management and custody services for institutions that are interested in moving to the nascent space.

SEBA is now applying for a banking and securities dealer license from the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) before it can roll out the planned crypto banking services.

According to a report from Reuters, the FINMA has confirmed that the licensing process is underway. If granted, SEBA said it will eventually open both online and physical banks for crypto and traditional financial services.

Andreas Amschwand, former global head of foreign exchange and money market at UBS and now chairman of SEBA, commented in the announcement:

"In Switzerland, we have the commitment from various authorities to establish a comprehensive regulatory environment for the development of blockchain technology and the sustainable, stable growth of crypto assets. This makes Switzerland the ideal place to launch a new financial services paradigm."

That said, SEBA is not the only crypto startup that is interested in securing a license to launch crypto banking services.

As previously reported by CoinDesk, the Goldman Sachs-backed crypto wallet and investment platform Circle is also seeking to register as a licensed bank in the U.S. at the federal level in order to offer crypto brokerage and trading services in all 50 states.
