花旗开发数字资产凭证DAR,添加合规、低风险等新元素

据Business Insider9月9日报道,花旗集团开发了一种新的投资工具——数字资产凭证(DAR),这据称是在不拥有加密资产的情况下,投资加密货币最直接的方式,并且它可能会是这个行业的游戏规则改变者。

据知情人士透露,花旗集团的数字资产凭证(DAR)将把加密货币纳入现有的监管体系中,并让对冲基金、资产管理公司等华尔街机构投资者以一种风险较低的方式投资加密货币。

花旗开发的这种名为数字资产凭证(DAR)的投资工具,工作原理很像美国存托凭证(American Depository Receipt)。近几十年来,美国存托凭证一直为美国投资者提供了一种对不在美国交易所交易的外国股票的投资方式。这种外国股票由一家银行持有,然后由银行签发存托凭证。

对于花旗集团的数字资产凭证(DAR),加密货币由保管人持有,DAR由花旗集团发行。一位知情人士透露,一旦花旗银行开具了数字资产凭证,它将向提供清算和结算服务的华尔街中介机构——美国存管信托和结算公司DTCC发送消息。这位知情人士还说,这为投资者提供了一层重要的法律保护,让他们能够在自己熟悉的系统中跟踪投资对象。

数字资产凭证(DAR)是花旗集团资本市场开发团队与存托凭证服务团队的合作项目。目前尚不清楚该项目的开发阶段以及启动时间,但该行已经开始与潜在合作伙伴进行接触。花旗发言人拒绝就此计划置评。

花旗集团是世界上最大的美国存托凭证(ADR)发行商之一,自1928年开始发行ADR以来,其官网称该银行因其获得了多项奖项。

华尔街正小心翼翼地对待新兴的加密货币市场,主要因为这个市场容易受到价格剧烈波动、黑客攻击等事件的影响。

花旗集团此前在加密货币市场的参与中就有所保留。与摩根士丹利、高盛等公司不同,花旗不仅没有立即为客户提供比特币期货交易清算服务,而且禁止客户使用其信用卡购买加密货币相关产品。

The US-based investment banking titan Citigroup has figured out a way to make cryptocurrency investments less risky.

The company has created what it’s calling “Digital Asset Receipts (DARs),” which will allow its customers to invest in cryptocurrencies without having to own them,  according to Business Insider.

Citigroup’s DAR services will work much like its American Depositary Receipt (ADR) services. ADR allows for US investors to trade foreign stocks that don’t otherwise trade on the country’s exchanges.

The cryptocurrency will be held by a custodian and invested through the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation, a finance company that provides clearing and settlement services to Wall Street.

With DAR, Citigroup is providing assets managers and hedge funds a way to invest in cryptocurrencies that they are already familiar with. The company expects to overcome their aversion towards digital assets by making it less risky and trustable.

It is worth noting that Citigroup hasn’t yet made any official announcement for this project. It’s not yet known when the project will actually launch. However, according to the report, the company is already reaching out to potential partners.

It also remains to be seen how well the idea of DARs will go with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

The SEC has persistently maintained that the cryptocurrency market suffers from market manipulation and isn’t ready for mainstream financial instruments. Indeed, the agency has rejected all exchange traded fund (ETF) proposals for cryptocurrencies it has ever received.

Another investment banking giant Goldman Sachs recently bailed on its proposed cryptocurrency trading desk citing regulatory hurdles. However, the company is still working on its custodial service.
