法国考虑制定首个针对加密资产中介的监管框架

法国正在考虑制定该国首个针对加密资产中介的监管框架。此举将要求法定货币-加密货币交易所以及加密密钥的托管商进行强制性的AMF登记。

对待加密货币,法国是认真的

就加密货币法规而言,法国是欧盟中较为活跃的成员国之一。法国在9月早些时候出台了有关ICO领域的监管规定,据报道,该国目前正在考虑一项修正案,将加密货币交易所和该领域的其他实体纳入其金融监管机构的监管范围。

同样重要的是,这个提出的修正案对“加密资产”一词有相当广泛的定义。根据修正案内容,加密资产是一种无形的包含有权利的数字资产,可以在不具备金融工具资格的情况下被发行、注册、持有和分布式账本上转移。此外,该修正案还涵盖了“所有数字化注册和转移的资产,这些资产包含可用于购买商品或服务的非货币性的价值单位。”

强制性的AMF登记

根据该条例草案,在提供任何服务之前,持有加密密钥的中介机构以及加密货币-法定货币交易所将需要进行AMF登记。AMF是法国的金融监管机构,将负责公布进行过登记和批准的服务提供商名单。

这个新框架还对不遵守规定的人处以巨额罚款。未登记的供应商将被处以3万欧元的罚款和至多两年的监禁。

关于与已经建立的实体合作的问题,这份修正案允许它们从该规定发布之日起12个月内向AMF登记。

France is considering enacting the country’s very first regulatory framework governing crypto-asset intermediaries. The move will require fiat-to-cryptocurrency exchanges as well as custodians of cryptographic keys to undergo a mandatory AMF registration.

GETTING SERIOUS ABOUT CRYPTOCURRENCIES

France is one of the more active members of the European Union when it comes to cryptocurrency regulations. The country introduced its own regulations governing the field of initial coin offerings (ICOs) earlier in September and is now reportedly considering an amendment which would put cryptocurrency exchanges and other entities in the field under the legislative purview of its financial watchdog.

It’s also important to note that the proposed amendment sets forth a fairly broad definition of the term “crypto-asset”. According to it, this is an intangible digital asset which incorporates rights and can be issued, registered, held, as well as transferred on a distributed ledger while not being qualified as a financial instrument. Additionally, the amendment also covers “any digitally registered and transferred asset incorporating nonmonetary units of value that can be transferred for acquiring goods or services.”

MANDATORY AMF REGISTRATION

Under the draft regulations, intermediaries which hold cryptographic keys in custody, as well as cryptocurrency-to-fiat exchanges will need to undergo an AMF registration prior to offering any services. The AMF is France’s financial watchdog and it will be responsible for publishing a list of registered and approved service providers.

The new framework also comes with hefty fines for those who fail to comply. Unregistered providers will be subjected to a fine of EUR 30,000 and up to two years of imprisonment.

On the matter of dealing with already established entities, the amendment allows them 12 months from the date of the publication to register with the AMF.
