韩国国民银行将在一年内推出数字资产托管服务

2020-11-19 13:08

 

据DDaily报道,韩国资产价值最高的银行国民银行将在一年内推出数字资产托管服务。此前,区块链公司Hashed宣布与韩国国民银行(Kookmin Bank)在8月份结成合作伙伴关系,以加速韩国数字资产市场的发展。


韩国国民银行今年1月申请了“KBDAC”(数字资产托管)商标,显示出该行在数字资产托管服务方面的初步意向。


在最近的D.FINE会议上,韩国国民银行IT技术创新中心负责人Cho Jin-Seok证实,这项服务有可能在年内推出。然而,作为一家银行,这样做有困难。这些言论引发了人们的猜测,即该行将通过与一家数字资产公司的合资企业推出这项服务。


韩国国民银行一直在寻求区块链公司提供技术方面的帮助。该银行已经与四家区块链公司签署了商业协议:2019年6月的Atomix Lab,以及今年8月的韩国坎伯兰坎伯兰、Haachi Labs和Hashed。


其他韩国银行,如农合银行和新韩银行,也开始了数字资产托管项目,不过预计KB国民银行将是第一个推出这种服务的银行。今年6月,农盖普银行与区块链事务所Hexlant以及韩国最大的律师事务所之一太平洋律师事务所(Pacific law)组建了一个财团。与此同时,该行宣布了其开展数字资产托管业务的意图。另一方面,新韩银行正考虑与虚拟资产交易所Kobit成立合资公司,建立自己的数字资产托管业务。


世界各地的银行一直在考虑提供数字资产托管服务。美国财政部的分支机构货币监理署(OCC)宣布,允许银行提供虚拟资产托管服务。


今年2月,40家德国银行接洽了德国联邦金融监管局(BaFin),表达了对数字资产业务的兴趣。在此之前不久,德国通过了一项法律,将欧盟洗钱指令纳入其银行法,涵盖了虚拟资产的托管。在立法于1月1日生效后,波尔斯斯图加特集团宣布其子公司blocknox计划向机构投资者提供数字资产和加密货币托管服务。

 

South Korea’s largest bank by asset value, Kookmin Bank, will introduce a digital asset custodial service within a year, according to DDaily. This comes after blockchain firm Hashed announced its partnership with Kookmin Bank in August to accelerate the market for digital assets in South Korea.

Kookmin Bank applied for the trademark ‘KBDAC’ (Digital Asset Custody) in January this year, demonstrating the bank’s early intentions for digital asset custody services.

At the recent D.FINE conference, Kookmin Bank’s Head of IT Technology Innovation Center, Cho Jin-Seok, confirmed that it’s possible the service will launch within the year. However, there are difficulties doing so as a bank. These comments have led to speculation that the bank will launch the service through a joint venture with a digital asset firm.

Kookmin Bank has been looking at blockchain companies to help with the technical side of the service. The bank has signed business agreements with four blockchain companies: Atomix Lab in June 2019, and Cumberland Korea, Haachi Labs, and Hashed in August this year.

Other Korean Banks, such as Nonghyup Bank and Shinhan Bank, are also beginning digital asset custody projects, although it’s expected that KB Kookmin Bank will be the first to launch such a service. In June this year, Nonghyup Bank established a consortium with blockchain firm Hexlant and one of South Korea’s biggest law firms, Pacific Law. At the same time, the bank announced its intentions for a digital asset custody business. On the other hand, Shinhan Bank is considering a joint venture with virtual asset exchange Kobit to establish their own digital asset custody business.

Banks across the world have been looking at offering digital asset custody services initiatives. The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), a U.S. Treasury branch, announced banks are allowed to provide custody services for virtual assets.

In February this year, 40 German Banks approached regulator BaFin expressing an interest in the digital asset business. This came soon after Germany passed a law implementing the EU Money Laundering Directive into its Banking Act, which covers the custody of virtual assets. After the legislation came into force on January 1st, Boerse Stuttgart Group announced its subsidiary blocknox plans to offer digital asset and cryptocurrency custody services to institutional investors.
