英国:将对非法使用加密货币的行为做出“全面回应”

英国监管机构合作评估加密货币

英国监管机构计划对非法加密使用作出“全面回应”,尤其是在伦敦的加密货币监管活动上,英国金融市场行为监管局战略与竞争执行董事Christopher Woolard表示,监管机构正计划采取重大行动来打击加密货币的非法使用。

针对近年来加密货币的采用率大幅增加的情况,Woolard表示英国金融市场行为监管局正寻求促进其与英国财政部(HMT)以及英国央行的合作,以此来评估加密货币和分布式账本技术在“消费者、市场诚信和金融犯罪风险”等方面的影响。

Woolard表示:

英国金融市场行为监管局、英国财政部和英国央行在未来几个月都将采取一些措施以解决这些危害行为,并鼓励对未来有益的创新。

英国监管机构计划采取重大行动

Woolard表示英国财政部计划采取重大行动来反对使用加密货币为非法活动进行融资。他说道:

为了打击金融犯罪等风险,财政部将对使用加密货币资产从事非法活动作出全球最全面的回应。

尽管语气坚定,但Woolard还是表示他和金融稳定委员会并不认为加密货币是一种威胁,并强调监管机构需要对此保持警惕。

这位英国金融市场行为监管局额官员还表示,他预计加密货币资产将继续在英国消费者和企业中得到越来越多的采用。

UK Regulatory Institutions Collaborate to Assess Crypto

Speaking at the Regulation of Cryptocurrencies event in London, Christopher Woolard, the executive director of strategy and competition at the FCA, stated that the regulator is planning to take significant action to crack down on the illicit use of cryptocurrencies.

In response to the dramatic increase of crypto adoption in recent years, Woolard stated that the FCA has sought to facilitate collaboration between itself and Her Majesty’s Treasury (HMT) and the Bank of England to examine the impact of cryptocurrencies and distributed ledger technology with regard to “consumers […] market integrity, and the risk of financial crime.”.

Woolard stated:

“The FCA, HM Treasury and the Bank of England are each taking a number of steps over the coming months to address these harms and to encourage future beneficial innovation.”

Plans To Take Significant Action

Woolard announced that the HMT plans to take significant action against the use of cryptocurrency in the financing of illegal activities.

Woolard stated: “To combat financial crime risks, the treasury will undertake one of the most comprehensive responses globally to the use of crypto assets for illicit activities,” adding that the HMT will be “applying and going further than the existing directive, the fifth EU Anti-Money Laundering Directive.”

Despite the firm tone, Woolard stated that he and the Financial Stability Board do not view cryptocurrencies as a threat, however, and emphasized the need for regulators to remain vigilant.

The FCA official also expressed his expectation that crypto assets will continue to see increased adoption among UK consumers and businesses.
