马来西亚:政府不反对新的货币形式,但央行拥有最终决定权

本周一,马来西亚财政部长Lim Guan Eng在一次会议中表示,在加密货币项目上,必须咨询该国央行马来西亚国家银行(BNM)的意见,因为加密货币项目的最终决定权在该央行手中。

也就是说,政府并不反对新的货币形式,但必须遵守现有的法律。

Harapan Coin项目

马来西亚财政部长做出上述回应之际正值Harapan Coin项目引发密切关注之时。该平台被称为世界上第一个使用区块链技术的政治筹款平台。马来西亚联邦领土部长Khalid Samad启动该项目是为了在明年大选前为马来西亚当前执政党Pakatan Harapan筹集资金。

正如CCN本月报道的那样,这个项目在马来西亚引发了争议,一些政界人士力推该项目,而另一些人则敦促谨慎行事。

在星期一的议会辩论中,一名议员再次提出这个问题,他说,该项目虽然没有得到BNM的批准,但是已经筹集了上万美元。

等待BNM的批准

Samad在发起政治筹款项目时指出正在拟订一项建议,以便将其提交该国中央银行,以便获得监管当局的批准。本月中旬,Samad为该项目辩护说加密货币是未来的潮流。

据Free Malaysia Today报道,Samad本月初表示,

“阿里巴巴集团创始人马云(Jack Ma)也曾说过,就技术而言,区块链是未来……如果我们管理并用好它,它就会有价值。

马来西亚前总理Najib Razak对这种加密货币表示批评,他已敦促项目背后的个人和实体提高项目透明性,以确保大众不被骗。

Malaysia has indicated that the country’s central bank has the last word regarding the introduction of new cryptocurrencies.

According to the Minister of Finance, Lim Guan Eng, the country’s central bank Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM), will have to be consulted regarding cryptocurrency projects as the final decision rests with the apex bank.

“This is where I wish to advise all parties, no matter who they are, intending to issue bitcoins or cryptocurrency, that they must refer to Bank Negara which is the authority that will have the final say on this new form of currency,” The Star reported Lim as having said while answering a question in parliament Monday.

Noting that the government was not against new currency forms, Lim insisted that existing laws would have to be followed.

“Don’t do it without Bank Negara’s guidelines or directive on the matter to avoid doing something wrong and against the law,” added Lim.

Harapan Coin Project

The response by Malaysia’s finance minister came as intense debate rages over the Harapan Coin which has been dubbed the first political fundraising platform in the world to use blockchain technology. During Monday’s parliamentary debate an MP again raised the issue saying the Harapan project had generated hundreds of U.S. dollars despite not having received the approval of BNM.

As CCN reported this month, the Harapan Coin project has generated controversy in Malaysia with some politicians pushing for it while others urge caution. Khalid Samad, Malaysia’s Federal Territories Minister, launched the project as a way of raising funds for Pakatan Harapan, Malaysia’s current ruling political party, ahead of next year’s elections.

BNM Approval Being Awaited

While launching the Harapan Coin project Samad indicated that a proposal was being prepared with a view of presenting it to the country’s central bank in order to obtain regulatory approval. Mid this month, Samad defended the project saying cryptocurrencies were the wave of the future.

“The founder of Alibaba Group, Jack Ma, has also said it (blockchain) is the future in terms of technology … When we manage and use it well, there would be value to it. People would buy (the Harapan Coin) and the value would go up when it is used for government matters and other purposes,” Free Malaysia Today reported Samad as having said earlier this month.

Critics of the cryptocurrency have included former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak who has urged the individuals and entities behind the project to be more transparent in order to ensure the masses are not ripped off.
