百慕大利用区块链和加密货币加速经济发展

今天,百慕大总理兼财政部长David Burt对外公布了三项国家发展战略,其中两项都与加密货币和区块链产业相关,并借此构成借金融科技之力推动百慕大经济发展的重要经济规划。

此前,标准普尔全球评级曾将百慕大的信用评级提高至正面积极,肯定了其“A+长期主权信用和高级无担保债务评级”,这是自2010年以来首次提升该国的信用评级,而信贷排名的改善反映了百慕大增长的经济和发展前景。

根据Burt的发言,百慕大的目标是将金融科技打造成该国经济发展的“第三支柱”,与其现有的金融服务和旅游经济基础形成互补。

目前,百慕大已经与加密货币交易所Binance建立了实质性合作关系。根据最近的谅解备忘录(MoU),Binance将会向百慕大的教育和区块链初创公司提供1500万美元的资金。此外,在最新的公告中Binance还承诺,将通过在百慕大建立合规基地创造40个就业岗位。

而区块链公司Medici Ventures也与百慕大政府签订了一份全新的谅解备忘录,承诺将百慕大列为其“十几家区块链公司中的最稳定的前沿区块链创新实验室”。Medici希望在三年内在百慕大创造至少30个工作岗位,培育一批软件开发工程师。此外,区块链技术开发商、投资者和孵化器也纷纷表示将大力推动百慕大安全代币交易平台的未来发展。

稍早前的4月27日,由Burt领导的百慕大政府成功通过了加密货币ICO的新法规,希望为推动区块链与加密货币产业发展构建一个合理的监管框架。

总体来讲,金融科技、区块链和加密货币产业的积极举措将推动百慕大经济持续发展,并有望将其打造成一个新的地域数字经济中心。

In an announcement today, David Burt, premier and minister of finance of Bermuda, has revealed three important developments for the island nation, two of which are based on agreements with blockchain and cryptocurrency giants and form part of Burt's FinTech strategy to bolster Bermuda's economy.

First, SS&P Global Ratings has elevated Bermuda's credit to positive, affirming its "A+ long-term sovereign credit and senior unsecured debt ratings," the first upgrade to the country's credit rating since 2010. According to the press release, SS&P has also confirmed "a-1 short-term ratings and its AA+ convertibility assessment."

The improved credit ranking reflects Bermuda's prospects and growing economy, rewarding a period of positive real economic growth in Bermuda at a time when the country's fiscal deficit has also narrowed.

The second development is a continuation of Bermuda's active strategy to form FinTech, blockchain, and virtual currency capabilities. The government's goal is to define a "third pillar" of industry based on the FinTech sector to complement its existing economic base of financial services and tourism.

Bermuda has already formed substantial links with cryptocurrency exchange Binance as part of its FinTech initiatives. A recent memorandum of understanding (MoU) established $15 million of funding from Binance to Bermudan programs for education and blockchain startups. In the latest announcement, Binance has promised to create 40 jobs by developing its compliance base in Bermuda; it further asserted its intention to develop a cryptocurrency exchange there "as soon as is practical."

The third announcement is that of a new MoU with blockchain company Medici Ventures, which has pledged to make Bermuda its "laboratory for the most leading edge blockchain innovations coming out of its stable of a dozen blockchain firms." Medici wants to create at least 30 jobs in Bermuda over three years and nurture a pipeline of software development engineers. The blockchain technology developer, investor, and incubator has also committed to the future development of a trading platform for security tokens in Bermuda.

On April 27, the government of Bermuda, led by Burt, successfully passed new legislation for cryptocurrency ICOs with the goal of creating a regulatory framework to encourage the significant interest surrounding them.

The positive economic outlook for Bermuda is likely reinforced by its aggressive initiatives for FinTech, blockchain, and cryptocurrencies and could see the small country become a thriving digital hub.
