美联储称没有监管加密货币的职责,但会密切关注其发展

在本周刚刚结束的美国国会众议院金融服务委员会听证会上,美联储主席杰罗姆·鲍威尔表示,虽然比特币价格增长很快,而且普及度也不断上升,但他并不会特别关注加密货币,因为美联储有更重要的问题亟待解决。

此外,杰罗姆·鲍威尔认为加密货币生态系统还不具备对美国金融体系构成威胁的能力,而且监管加密货币并不属于美联储的职责管辖范围,因为美国证券交易委员会(SEC)、美国商品期货交易委员会(CFTC)、以及美国其他监管机构在加密货币监管方面所做的工作非常优秀,而且已经打击了许多不符合要求的欺诈性初始代币发行(ICO)和比特币相关业务。

随着美国证券交易委员会监管力度不断加强,许多初始代币发行组织方已经放弃了他们的非法项目。不仅如此,美国证券交易委员会还推出一个HoweyCoins.com网站,向潜在初始代币发行投资者解释哪些虚拟货币投资计划有可能涉嫌欺诈。

不过,美联储其他官员对待加密货币的发展还是非常谨慎的,比如最近美联储理事莱尔·布雷纳德就透露,美联储会不断探索数字资产,以研究数字货币对支付政策、监管和监督、金融稳定、货币政策、以及金融服务等领域产生的影响。

事实上,莱尔·布雷纳德还表示,美联储会监控一些加密货币展现出的极端波动性。此外,她还透露美联储目前并没有发行央行数字货币的强烈需求。

While a good number of central banks see bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as significant threats to their survival, the United States Federal Reserve Chairman, Jerome Powell, said on July 18, 2018, that the exponential growth in the price of bitcoin and the increasing adoption of cryptos doesn’t bother him.

The Fed Won’t Regulate Digital Currencies

According to a Bloomberg report, US Federal Reserve Chairman, Jerome Powell, firmly believes that the burgeoning virtual currency ecosystem doesn’t have what it takes to pose a threat to the country’s finance system. During testimony before the House Financial Services Committee on July 18, the highly reputed Republican and alumnus of Princeton University made it clear that there are more significant issues on the Fed’s table than blockchain-based digital currencies.

Powell also stated that regulating cryptocurrencies is not in the jurisdiction of the US Federal Reserve as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), along with other regulatory watchdogs present in the state, are providing excellent oversight for the local cryptospace. The US SEC and the CFTC have been quite proactive in their crypto regulatory activities, hammering down many fraudulent initial coin offerings (ICOs) and bitcoin-linked businesses that do not meet their requirements.

Earlier in February, the SEC disclosed that quite many ICO organizers had abandoned their illicit projects because of a simple phone call from regulators. On May 17, 2018, BTCManager reported that the SEC had created a mock ICO, HoweyCoins.com, in a bid to better illustrate to prospective ICO investors what a fraudulent virtual currency-based investment scheme looks like.

The Fed Very Concerned About Bitcoin

It’s worthy of noting that in spite of the latest, somewhat dismissive comments of Powell, the US Federal Reserve has always had a keen interest in the nearly $300 billion cryptocurrency markets. Back in May, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, led by Lael Brainard, stated at the Decoding Digital Currency Conference that the Fed will continue to point its searchlight on digital assets to study their “potential implications for payments policy, supervision and regulation, financial stability, monetary policy, and the provision of financial services.”

The event, which was organized specifically to discuss cryptocurrencies and distributed ledger technology, was sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.
