瑞士颁发了该国首个加密资产管理许可证

10月9日,瑞士金融市场监管局(FINMA)已向瑞士一家加密货币投资基金颁发了该国首个加密货币资产管理许可证。

该许可证的接收方是总部位于瑞士楚格的Crypto Finance AG于2017年创立的子公司Crypto Fund。据报道,到目前为止,该基金只能根据FINMA规则发行离岸加密货币基金。不过,新许可证将允许该公司合法提供一系列追踪比特币和其他加密资产(包括国内基金)的集体投资产品。

该许可证还允许该公司为机构客户提供投资咨询服务。正如文章所指出的那样,从本质上讲,这为该公司提供了与传统瑞士资产管理公司相同的业务自由。

据Swissinfo称,许多加密基金竞争对手正“排队”等候,希望获得一系列经营加密货币相关产品和服务的许可证,其中包括申请为国内加密货币运营商提供全面银行服务的许可证。

巴比特最近报道了一家瑞士区块链初创公司获得了金融服务标准协会(VQF)的批准,可以在当地金融市场开展业务。该协会是由FINMA授权行使监督反洗钱(AML)合规职能。据报道,该公司也在申请银行执照,以便将来可以提供证券投资服务。

今年夏天,楚格当地公司与楚格政府合作,对基于区块链的市政投票系统进行了试验。

瑞士在管理加密货币领域积极主动。今年2月,FINMA公布了关于ICO的详细指南,根据该指南,许多项目——特别是实用型和资产型代币——将受到证券法的监管,而支付型代币则适用于瑞士反洗钱法。

The Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) has issued the country’s first cryptocurrency asset management license to a crypto investment fund, Swiss-centered media outlet Swissinfo reports today, Oct. 9.

The recipient is Crypto Fund, a subsidiary founded in 2017 by Zug-based Crypto Finance AG. The fund has reportedly until now only been able to distribute offshore-based cryptocurrency funds under FINMA rules. The new license, however, will permit the firm to legally offer a wide spectrum of collective investment products that track Bitcoin (BTC) and other crypto assets, including domestic funds.

The license also allows the firm to provide investment consultancy services for institutional clients — essentially affording it the same freedom as that given to traditional Swiss asset managers, as the article notes.

According to Swissinfo, there is a crush of rival crypto funds “queuing up” to get approval for a gamut of crypto-related products and services, which include applications for a license to offer full banking services for cryptocurrency operators in the country.

Cointelegraph has recently reported on a Swiss blockchain startup that won approval to operate in the local financial market under the Financial Services Standards Association (VQF), which is authorized by FINMA to oversee anti-money laundering (AML) compliance. The firm in question is also reportedly seeking a banking license to enable it to offer securities investments in future.

As previously reported, Zug known in the crypto industry by the moniker, “Crypto Valley,” given the high concentration of blockchain- and crypto-related projects active in the town.

This summer, local companies partnered with the Zug government to trial a blockchain-based municipal voting system.

Switzerland more broadly is markedly proactive when it comes to regulating the new crypto space. In February of this year, FINMA published detailed guidelines on ICOs, according to which many projects — specifically utility and asset tokens — are to be regulated under securities laws, whereas payment tokens fall under the Swiss Anti-Money-Laundering (AML) Act.
