分析:全球主要的加密期货市场可能面临监管改革

2020-11-20 15:01

根据Messari.io的新研究,针对香港区块链行业的拟议法规,可能会对加密衍生品市场产生深远的影响。 

在周三发表的一份报告中,研究员Mira Christanto表示,香港特别行政区是主要的加密货币期货交易市场,作为加强监管的一部分,香港特别行政区可能会打击不受监管的交易所。

这位研究人员援引了香港证券及期货事务监察委员会(SFC)最近提出的一项建议,该建议要求所有加密业务都应遵守反洗钱规定。这与一年前香港证监会宣布只监管 "证券 "领域的公司有很大不同。 

此前,SFC只监管符合证券或期货法律定义的资产--这一定义将加密货币排除在外。 

正如Cointelegraph本月早些时候报道的那样,香港政府已经提议将所有加密资产纳入其证券监管机构的监督之下。这一监管努力似乎是全球范围内控制加密货币交易所的部分举措,监管可能是以洗钱问题为幌子。 

正如Messari所指出的那样,香港恰好是加密期货市场中最主要的参与者。近四分之三(72%)的以太坊(ETH)期货和57%的比特币(BTC)期货来自香港特别行政区。

Christanto表示:

"很多人没有意识到香港在全球加密货币领域所扮演的角色。香港是一些大企业的总部所在地,并主导着不断增长的期货市场。" 

香港拥有大量的加密货币交易所和市场服务公司,包括BitMEX、Bitfinex、Crypto.com和FTX。OKEx、火币和Bybit等交易所在香港设有区域办事处。Tether、Cardano和EOS的发行商block.one等大型行业参与者也位于香港。

如果新提案通过成为法律,继续无证经营的企业可能面临严厉的处罚。运营这些平台的公司高管甚至有可能被判入狱。 

正如Messari指出的那样,到目前为止,只有两家加密金融服务公司在香港获得了牌照。

Proposed regulations targeting Hong Kong’s blockchain industry could have far-reaching consequences for the crypto derivatives market, according to new research from Messari.io. 

In a report published on Wednesday, researcher Mira Christanto said the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong, which happens to be the dominant market for crypto futures trading, could be clamping down on unregulated exchanges as part of a broader push for more governance.

The researcher cited a recent proposal from the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission, or SFC, that would require all crypto businesses to fall under anti-money laundering rules. This is a significant departure from just one year ago when the SFC announced it would only regulate companies in the ‘securities’ space.

Previously, the SFC only regulated assets that meet the legal definition of securities or futures -- a definition that excluded cryptocurrencies.

As Cointelegraph reported earlier this month, the Hong Kong government has proposed to bring all cryptoassets under the oversight of its securities regulator. The regulatory push appears to be part of a worldwide initiative to rein in cryptocurrency exchanges, possibly under the guise of money laundering concerns.

As Messari notes, Hong Kong just so happens to be the most dominant player in the crypto futures market. Nearly three-quarters (72%) of Ethereum (ETH) futures and 57% of Bitcoin (BTC) futures come from the Special Administrative Region.

Christanto said:

“Many people don’t realize the role Hong Kong plays in the global cryptocurrency space. Hong Kong is home to some of the largest enterprises and dominates the growing futures market.”

Hong Kong host a large presence of cryptocurrency exchanges and market services companies, including BitMEX, Bitfinex, Crypto.com and FTX. Exchanges like OKEx, Huobi and Bybit maintain regional offices in the semi-autonomous city-state. Large industry players like Tether, Cardano and EOS publisher block.one are also situated in Hong Kong.

If the new proposal passes into law, enterprises that continue to operate without a license could face stiff penalties. There is even the possibility of prison sentences for company executives who run these platforms.

As Messari notes, to date, only two crypto financial services companies have obtained licenses in Hong Kong.
