新西兰将加强对数字货币行业的监管

为了净化其金融生态系统的同时消除不良市场行为者,新西兰的金融监管机构金融市场管理局(FMA)此前在其年度报告中明确表示,截止到今年6月30日,当局将不再容忍无照经营提供比特币相关产品的公司以及相关金融服务。

金融市场管理局承诺打击无证公司

据知情人士透露,新西兰金融市场管理局发布的这份文件中谈到了其旨在让金融公司更符合监管要求的举措,并就比特币和其他与加密货币相关的投资产品的利弊向新西兰居民提出了建议。新西兰金融市场管理局在今年早些时候曾与国际同行澳大利亚皇家委员会联手,改善包括银行、外汇经纪商等在内的金融公司行为,以使它们按照现有规则运营。

值得注意的是,新西兰金融市场管理局明确表示了金融行业良好行为的重要性,因此对于在该地区没有相关牌照的公司来说,他们所经营的业务将被认定为非正常业务。

新西兰金融市场管理局首席执行官Rob Everett重申,新西兰的金融行业已经成熟,所有参与者都应该充分理解当局对他们的要求:

所有市场参与者都应该知道他们的牌照条件和义务。当我们看到有不服从的公司或者个体,我们会适当做出处理,但缺乏时间或经验不是一个合理的借口。

新西兰对其加密货币领域进行监管,根除欺诈

尽管对于比特币和山寨币来说最近市场低迷,但数字资产价格的暴跌并没有阻止不良参与者进行诈骗。

Everett进一步表示,金融市场管理局已经对滥用金融服务提供商注册信息的公司采取了法律行动,同时还“为感兴趣的投资者发布了关于加密货币管理的指导意见,以配合投资者兴趣的突然飙升。”

监管机构对基于区块链的业务表示了积极的态度,表示它鼓励创新,但感兴趣的提供商在开始从事基于加密货币相关业务之前,需要先征求它的意见。

In a bid to sanitize its financial ecosystem and rid it of bad actors, New Zealand’s financial regulatory watchdog, the Financial Markets Authority (FMA) has made it clear in its annual report for the year ended June 30, 2018, that the presence of unlicensed businesses offering bitcoin-linked products as well as other financial services will no longer be tolerated, reported Finance Magnates on October 25, 2018.

The FMA Pledges to Hammer Down Unlicensed Firms

Per sources close to the matter, the Financial Markets Authority (FMA) of New Zealand earlier today released its annual report for the year ended June 30, 2018.

In the document, the financial regulator talks about its initiatives to make financial companies more regulatory compliant, as well as enlighten New Zealand residents on the pros and cons of bitcoin and other cryptocurrency-linked investment products.

Earlier this year, the FMA reportedly joined forces with its international counterpart, the Australian Royal Commission to improve the conduct of financial firms including banks, forex brokers, and others, in its bid to make them operate in accordance with the existing rules.

Notably, the FMA has stated categorically that the importance of good conduct in the financial industry cannot be overemphasized, as such it would no longer be business as usual for firms operating without the relevant licenses in the region.

The CEO of FMA, Rob Everett, has reiterated that the New Zealand financial sector has matured to a point where all participants should fully understand what is required of them, adding that,

“All market participants should be aware of their licence conditions and obligations. Where we see non-compliance, our response will be appropriate but lack of time or experience is not a valid excuse.”

New Zealand Regulating its Cryptospace to Eradicate Fraudsters

While 2018 has not been a particularly good year for bitcoin and altcoins due to the recent market slump, the crash in the price of digital assets has however not deterred bad actors from doing what they know how to do best.

Everett further said that the FMA had taken legal actions against firms who misused the Financial Service Providers Register, while also “issuing guidance about cryptos for interested investors, to coincide with the sudden spike in interest.”

The regulator has expressed a positive stance towards blockchain-based businesses, stating that it encourages innovation, but interested providers need to approach it for guidance before commencing with their crypto-based businesses.
