韩国ICO禁令或被推翻,政府将在下月给出最终答案

韩国政府政策协调办公室主任Hong Nam-ki透露,韩国政府将在11月决定是否再次允许ICO在该国的活动。

他在国会的政府决策年度审查会上告诉立法者,该国监管部门近几个月以来都在研究这一话题。

Hong补充说,韩国市场监管部门金融服务委员会(FSC)从9月份开始就在进行相关的ICO调查。

根据10月底的调查结果,我们将在11月表明政府的立场。

Hong之所以提到这一话题,是因为来自韩国执政党民主党的立法者Jeon Haecheol就ICO的现状提出了疑问。Jeon一直都支持取消ICO禁令:

如果我们继续浪费时间的话,国内的区块链行业将面临巨大的挑战。我们需要采用更现实且更具体的方式来发展区块链行业,我认为允许ICO活动就是其中的一点。

去年9月,FSC发布的ICO禁令引起了关注。不过,Hong提到,一些加密货币项目依然在继续向韩国民众出售代币,只不过把注册地址转移到了海外。

今年5月,韩国国会的立法者开始呼吁废除ICO禁令。上月,FSC发放问卷,开始调查代币售卖项目以寻求详细的项目信息来重审ICO禁令。

除此之外,Hong还提到政府承诺支持区块链研发,将在未来几年拨款340亿韩元(3000万美元)用于区块链领域。

The South Korean government will make a decision in November on whether it will allow initial coin offerings (ICOs) again in the country, a top-level official has said.

Hong Nam-ki, head of the office for government policy coordination, told lawmakers during the National Assembly's annual audit on government actions that regulators in the country have been reviewing the topic in recent months, as CoinDesk Korea reported on Thursday.

Hong added that the Financial Services Commission (FSC), South Korea's market watchdog, has been conducting surveys on ICOs since September. "We are going to form the position of the government in November based on the results of the investigation at the end of October," he went on to say.

Hong was responding to the question on ICO permission raised by Jeon Haecheol, a lawmaker from the ruling Democratic Party, who voiced support for lifting the current ICO ban. Jeon said during the questioning:

"If we waste time, the blockchain industry could face huge difficulties. We need to look at very realistic and specific ways to nurture the blockchain industry, and I think permitting ICO is one of them."

In September 2017, the FSC notably issued a ban on domestic ICOs, following a similar move made by regulators in China. However, Hong said some crypto projects continued selling tokens to domestic residents by registering their businesses overseas.

In May this year, lawmakers from the National Assembly, the country's legislative arm, pushed for the removal of the ICO ban. And last month, CoinDesk reported the FSC was investigating token sales projects with a questionnaire seeking information on extensive project details as part of its effort to review the ICO ban case.

Elsewhere in Hong's remarks, he reiterated the government's commitment to supporting blockchain development with a government budget of 34 billion won, $30 million, in the coming years.
