中韩两国金融监管机构就加密货币等方面达成合作

上周,韩国最高金融监管机构——金融服务委员会(FSC)表示,将进行“重大的机构重组”。

据《韩国时报》报道称,FSC“将专门设立为韩国区块链行业决策制定的部门”。

这个名为金融创新局的新部门将运行两年。据《韩国时报》称,金融创新局的成立是FSC“在即将到来的第四次工业革命时代引领金融创新的重组计划”的一部分。该媒体表示:

这将有助于培育韩国的金融科技产业,这里的金融科技产业主要是指韩国的加密货币和区块链技术。

据称,FSC正在计划设立的这个组织,旨在通过改组之后更好地保护金融消费者。一位FSC的官员表示:

金融创新局还将负责为金融创新制定政策举措,如通过使用金融科技或者大数据创新金融服务,以及对诸如加密货币之类的新的发展和挑战做出回应。

与中国达成合作

据Chosun 上周报道称,韩国金融监管服务局(FSS)的第一高级副行长Yoo Kwang-yeol 最近会见了中国银行保险监督管理委员会副主席。双方同意进行金融监管合作。

两国之间的倡议始于FSS对在中国建立韩国保险公司外国分支机构流程进行审查。

据新闻媒体报道:

这两个组织已经决定对金融机构内部控制和反洗钱的监控经验和信息进行更进一步的交流。

新闻媒体还表示:

在与中国证券监督管理委员会的一次会议上,双方建立了合作,方式包括建立工作级别的热线。双方将共同应对新的全球监管和监管问题,如国际金融监管、虚拟货币、ICO和金融科技。

这并不是两国政府第一次讨论在针对加密货币领域的措施上进行合作了。

区块链企业税收优惠政策

今年早些时候,据news.Bitcoin.com报道称,韩国监管机构正寻求与中国和日本合作。今年2月,韩国战略与财政部长金东荣会见了中国人民银行行长,就两国的经济问题以及加密货币政策进行了探讨。据《韩国时报》本周报道,韩国政府在经济政策部长会议上与中国达成协议,决定振兴韩国的投资激励机制。而区块链被添加到有资格享受税收优惠的新兴技术列表中。

据《韩国时报》报道称:

为了减轻使用新技术的公司的负担,政府已决定“将税收优惠应用于区块链”技术。

此外,该媒体还指出:

基于区块链的信息安全技术、量子计算,以及对新增长技术范围的商业化设施等,将根据《免税限制法案》(11个现有行业的157个技术)进行相应减免。

韩国政府在1月底实施了加密货币交易账户的实名制。根据Money Today报道,加密货币交易所和商业银行之间的实名账户合同必须每隔6个月更新一次,以鼓励虚拟货币交易网站继续他们的反洗钱活动。现有的合同将在本月底到期。

到目前为止,只有韩国最大的四家加密货币交易所有实名账户合同。Upbit、Bithumb、Coinone和Korbit可以为他们的客户建立实名账户,而其他交易所则继续使用公司账户。

此外,目前只有3家银行提供实名账户服务,尽管有6家银行有能力这么做。

新闻机构表示:

Bithumb 与Shinhan银行、Nonghyup银行存在合同关系。Upbit与IBK银行签订了合同,Coinone与Nonghyup银行签订了合同,Korbit和Shinhan银行签订了合同。

从合同续签之时起, Coinplug 可能成为第五个与银行签订实名合同交易所。新闻媒体指出,Coinplug “自今年年初以来一直在与 Shinhan 银行进行谈判”。

South Korea’s top financial regulator is planning a major organizational restructuring that includes introducing some new crypto policy initiatives. A bureau dedicated to financial innovations that include cryptocurrencies is being set up. In addition, an agreement with Chinese authorities relating to crypto and initial coin offerings has also been reached. Meanwhile, the contracts between Korean crypto exchanges and banks for real-name accounts will expire this month.

Major Organizational Restructuring

Last week South Korea’s top financial regulator, the Financial Services Commission (FSC), said it will undergo a “major organizational restructuring.” As part of the plans, it “will establish a department exclusively for policymaking initiatives in the nation’s blockchain industry,” the Korea Times described.

The new department, called the Financial Innovation Bureau, will have a two-year lifespan. Its establishment is part of the FSC’s “restructuring plan to lead financial innovation in the coming Fourth Industrial Revolution era,” the news outlet explained, adding that “it will help nurture Korea’s fintech industry, mostly covering the nation’s cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.”

Citing that the Commission is planning “a major organizational reshuffle to better protect financial consumers,” an FSC official elaborated:

The new Financial Innovation Bureau will also be tasked with policy initiatives for financial innovation, such as innovating financial services using fintech or big data, and responses to new developments and challenges such as cryptocurrencies.

Agreement with China

Chosun reported last week that First Senior Deputy Governor of South Korea’s Financial Supervisory Service (FSS), Yoo Kwang-yeol, recently met with the Deputy Chairman of the Insurance Supervision and Management Committee of the Bank of China. They agreed to integrate the Financial Supervisory Cooperation Agreement.

The initiative between the two countries began as the FSS reviewed the process of establishing foreign branches for Korean insurance companies in China. “The two organizations have decided to expand their monitoring experience and information exchange on internal control of financial institutions and anti-money laundering,” the publication details, adding:

In a meeting with the China Securities Regulatory Commission, a cooperative channel was set up, including the establishment of a working-level hotline … it will jointly respond to new emerging global supervisory and regulatory issues such as international financial regulation, virtual currency, ICO [initial coin offering] and fintech.

This was not the first time the two governments discussed collaborating on crypto measures; earlier this year news.Bitcoin.com reported that the South Korean regulators were seeking to collaborate with China and Japan. In February, the country’s Minister of Strategy and Finance, Kim Dong-yeon, met with the governor of the People’s Bank of China to discuss economic issues of both countries as well as cryptocurrency policies.

Tax Benefits for Blockchain Companies

At the meeting of the ministers on economic policies, the government decided on a plan to revitalize the country’s investment incentive system, the Korea Times reported this week. Blockchain was added to the list of emerging technologies eligible for tax benefits. “In order to alleviate the investment burden of companies that use new technology,” the publication explained that the government has decided to “apply the tax benefits to blockchain” technology, noting:

Blockchain-based information security technology, quantum computing (advanced computer technology that operates on the principle of quantum mechanics), and commercialization facilities to the range of new growth technologies [are] to be subject to tax exemption under the Tax Exemption Restriction Act (157 technologies in 11 existing sectors).

Real-Name Account Contracts Expiring

The South Korean government implemented the real-name system for cryptocurrency trading accounts at the end of January. According to Money Today, the contracts between crypto exchanges and commercial banks for the issuance of real-name accounts must be renewed “every six months to encourage virtual currency trading sites to continue their anti-money laundering efforts.” Existing contracts will expire at the end of this month.

So far, only the country’s four biggest crypto exchanges have real-name account contracts. While Upbit, Bithumb, Coinone, and Korbit can issue real-name accounts for their customers, other exchanges continue to use corporate accounts. In addition, only three banks currently offer real-name account services despite six of them having the capability to do so. The publication elaborated:

Currently, Bithumb has contracts with Shinhan Bank and Nonghyup Bank. Upbit is with IBK, Coinone with Nonghyup Bank, and Korbit with Shinhan Bank.

At the time of contract renewals, Coinplug may become the fifth trading platform to have a real-name contract with a bank, the news outlet detailed, citing that the company “has been in talks with Shinhan Bank since the beginning of this year.”
