泰国央行计划使用区块链进行跨境支付

在7月12日举行的彭博东盟商业峰会上,泰国中央银行行长发表演讲时表示,该行正在考虑,推广区块链技术的各种应用。

该行行长Veerathai Santiprabhob博士在会上表示,该行特别审查了区块链在跨境支付、供应链融资和文件认证方面的申请。

Santiprabhob博士称,使用区块链进行跨境支付将“提高区域金融连通性,促使跨境金融服务更加顺畅”。

另外他还认为,区块链在减少欺诈和保护财务信息方面发挥着重要作用:

采用生物识别技术和区块链等现代技术能有助于保护财务信息,以及减少欺诈活动的数量和规模。

在演讲中,泰国央行行长还谈论到银行法规需要与时俱进,鼓励“竞争和创新”:

泰国银行也正在进行监管改革,审查过时的规则和法规,用以促进商业活动的便利性,并确保我们的法规不会妨碍竞争和创新,或导致金融服务成本过高。

最近,泰国在监管加密货币方面采取了两项值得注意的举措。3月30日,Cointelegraph 曾报道过,泰国财政部长透露了一个新的加密货币税收框架。另一项举措是来自泰国证券交易委员会,它表示首次币发行(ICO)新规将于7月16日生效。

泰国央行并不是第一次计划实施基于区块链技术的应用。早在6月,Santiprabhob博士谈到可能会发行央行数字货币(CBDC)以改善银行间结算。

The Governor of the Bank of Thailand (BoT), said that the bank is considering blockchain technology for various applications during a speech at the the Bloomberg ASEAN Business Summit on July 12.

The central bank’s governor Dr. Veerathai Santiprabhob stated that the bank was specifically reviewing blockchain applications for cross-border payments, supply chain financing, and document authentication.

According to Dr. Santiprabhob, using blockchain for cross-border payments would “improve regional financial connectivity and facilitate smoother cross-border financial services.”

The BoT’s Governor also sees blockchain playing an important role in reducing fraud and protecting financial information:

“Adoption of modern technologies like biometrics and blockchains can help safeguard financial information and reduce the number and magnitude of fraudulent activities.”

Also during his speech Thursday, the BoT governor spoke to the bank’s ongoing development of updated regulations encourage “competition and innovation”:

“The Bank of Thailand is also undergoing regulatory reform to review outdated rules and regulations, to facilitate ease of doing business and ensure that our regulations do not impede competition and innovation and contribute to high costs of financial services.”

Thailand has recently made two notable moves in regulating cryptocurrencies. As Cointelegraph reported March 30, the country’s Finance Minister revealed a new tax framework for cryptocurrencies. The second move came from the Thai Securities and Exchange Commission (Thai SEC), who stated that new Initial Coin Offering (ICO) regulations will come into effect July 16, as Cointelegraph reported last week.

This is not the BoT governor’s first step towards implementing blockchain-based technologies. As Cointelegraph reported earlier in June, Dr. Santiprabhob spoke of possibly issuing central bank digital currency (CBDC) to improve interbank settlements.
