本周，荷兰中央银行（De Nederlandsche Bank，后文简称DNB）和荷兰金融市场管理局（Authority for the Financial Markets，后文简称AFM）联合发布了一份声明，呼吁为荷兰加密交易所和钱包服务商建立许可制度，以此应对洗钱和恐怖主义融资问题。
The Dutch central bank and financial services regulator say that the country must introduce a licensing regime for crypto exchanges and wallet providers in order to tackle money laundering and terrorist financing.
In a joint statement, De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) and the Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) also call for the European regulatory framework for corporate funding to be amended to enable the use of cryptos that are comparable to shares or bonds.
This, they say, would mean that blockchain technology could be used to open opportunities for the funding of small-scale business activities by ensuring that the cryptos represent clear and enforceable rights.
Finally, the pair say that the cross-border nature of cryptos means that national regulations aimed at consumer protection can only be effective if they are coordinated at an international level.
Earlier this month, the European Banking Authority called on the EU to look into whether there should be a block-wide regulatory approach to crypto-assets.
