辅助区块链等技术企业,韩国新设金融创新局

7月20日据《韩国时报》报道,韩国金融服务委员会(FSC)透露,他们将设立一个专门负责加密货币和区块链行业的部门。

FSC表示,这个被称为金融创新局(Financial Innovation Bureau)的新部门,将专注于为该国区块链和金融科技行业制定政策。

一位FSC官员说道:

新的金融创新局将负责金融创新领域的相关政策,以及应对加密货币等新兴行业发展带来的挑战。金融创新领域包括利用金融科技或大数据提供的创新金融服务等等。

然而令人惊讶的是,金融创新局只会暂时存在,暂设2年。

据报道,这个临时新部门的成立是在金融监管机构和内政部、安全部的一次会议上做出的决定。

FSC官员表示:

FSC计划进行重大的组织重组,以更好地保护金融消费者,并积极应对第四次工业革命时期的金融创新。

近期在韩国越来越多的监管部门参与进来,试图规范区块链行业,韩国金融服务委员会此举可能只是其中重要的一部分。

值得注意的是,韩国去年宣布首次代币发行(ICO)非法。然而今年5月份,韩国政府的立法机构进而取消了这一禁令,并正式提议只要投资者保护措施到位,就允许ICO。

本月早些时候有报道称,韩国不同政党成员预计将提交关于监管加密货币、首次代币发行(ICO)和区块链的法案。此前,为了防范洗钱,有关部门收紧了监管规定,并在一系列黑客事件和贪污行为出现后对该国外汇交易行业提升了监管力度。

South Korea's Financial Services Commission (FSC) has revealed it is setting up a department dedicated primarily to cryptocurrencies and blockchain.

The FSC said the new department – dubbed the Financial Innovation Bureau – will focus on developing policy-making initiatives for the domestic blockchain and fintech industry, The Korea Times reported on Thursday.

An FSC official was cited as saying:

"The new Financial Innovation Bureau will ... 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."

Perhaps surprisingly, though, the body will exist only temporarily, with a two-year lifespan.

The decision to set up the temporary bureau was reportedly made during a meeting of financial regulators and the Ministry of the Interior and Safety.

"The FSC plans a major organizational reshuffle to better protect financial consumers and proactively respond to financial innovation in the Fourth Industrial Revolution era," said the FSC official.

The move by the finance regulator come amid a growing effort in the country to develop new laws to regulate the blockchain industry after somewhat knee-jerk reactions in the past.

Notably, South Korea outlawed initial coin offerings last year. However, in May, the nation's legislative arm of government pushed for the removal of the ban, officially proposing legislation to permit ICOs as long as investor protections are put in place.

Earlier this month, it was also reported that members of different political parties are expected to submit bills focused on regulating cryptocurrencies, initial coin offerings and blockchain. That follows moves by regulators to tighten rules to reduce the likelihood of money laundering and improve the domestic exchange industry following a number of hacks and cases of embezzlement.
