IMF持续关注区块链和加密货币,有望建立政策框架

据Cointelegraph 11月13日报道,国际货币基金组织(IMF)计划利用正在进行的区块链研究和试验,来作为在未来针对该技术进行政策制定的“支柱”。

在2018年新加坡金融科技节上,国际货币基金组织的副总法律顾问Ross Leckow在与Ripple公司首席执行官Brad Garlinghouse的座谈中,强调了该组织保持“活跃”关注的三个领域,其中就包括了区块链和加密货币领域。

Ross Leckow对听众说道:

国际货币基金组织对金融科技投入了大量的关注,特别是对区块链领域的关注。但我们认为,如果不考虑正在构成金融科技力量的其他新技术的话,我们就很难探讨区块链技术。

对于Leckow来说,这些新兴技术包括了人工智能(AI),分布式分类帐本技术(DLT)以及加密货币资产等。

随后Ross Leckow进一步强调了国际货币基金组织关于加密货币和区块链的持续研究工作。

他补充称各大银行和政府对如何管理和监管新兴市场表现出了极大的兴趣:

鉴于在这方面的建议需求,上个月我们在巴厘岛举行的年会上和世界银行共同发起了一个名为巴厘岛金融科技议程(Bali Fintech Agenda)的倡议,我们认为这是各国在涉及有关金融科技的政策时,需要考虑的第一个全面的问题框架。这将是我们在未来许多相关工作的支柱。

当然,国际货币基金组织对加密货币的态度也并不是一味地支持。在今年9月,由于国际货币基金组织考虑到了反洗钱的问题,它曾因建议马绍尔群岛不要发行本国加密货币而受到抨击。

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said it plans to use its ongoing research and experimentation with blockchain as an “anchor” for its future policy on the technology in comments Nov. 12.

Speaking on a panel with Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse during the Singapore Fintech Festival 2018, IMF Deputy General Counsel Ross Leckow highlighted three areas the organization has been “active” in regarding blockchain, cryptocurrency and more.

“The IMF is devoting a lot of attention to fintech and in particular to blockchain,” he told the audience, continuing:

“But we think that it’s difficult to talk about blockchain without considering it in light of the other new technologies that are forming part of the fintech debate.”

For Leckow, these include artificial intelligence (AI), so-called distributed ledger technology (DLT), cryptoassets and several others.

He further underscored the continued research efforts underway at the the IMF regarding cryptocurrency and blockchain, referring to the various documents published in recent years.

Member banks and governments, he added, were demonstrating considerable interest in guidance on how to handle and regulate the emerging sector.

“Given the demand for advice in this area, at our annual meeting in Bali last month, we and the World Bank jointly launched an initiative called the Bali Fintech Agenda, which we think is the first comprehensive framework of issues that countries need to think about when designing policy around fintech,” Leckow said.

“This will be an anchor for much of our work going forward.”
