卡塔尔金融中心监管局或禁止加密货币交易

2020-1-6 17:28

拥有250多万人口的中东国家卡塔尔据说已经禁止了加密货币交易。


根据新闻媒体《国际投资》(International Investment)最近的一篇报道,卡塔尔金融中心(QFC)监管机构表示,“目前,虚拟资产服务可能不会在QFC内部或外部进行。”


根据报告,这些服务包括fiat-to-crypto和crypto- crypto交易、托管以及与虚拟资产相关的金融服务。


具体来说,监管机构曾表示,该禁令包括“任何可以替代货币、可以进行数字交易或转移、可以用于支付或投资目的的任何有价值的东西”。


目前尚不清楚QFCRA为何采取这一举措。该网站已经联系监管机构征求意见,如果我们得到回复,将更新这篇报道。


2018年,卡塔尔央行表示,比特币交易在该国是非法的。“这种加密货币高度不稳定,可能被用于金融犯罪和电子黑客,也可能因为没有担保人或资产而面临价值损失的风险,”该机构当时表示。

 

Qatar, the Middle East country with a population of over 2.5 million, is said to have banned cryptocurrency trading.

 

According to a recent report from the news outlet International Investment, the Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) Regulatory Authority has said that “Virtual Asset Services may not be conducted in or from the QFC at this time." 

 

The services include fiat-to-crypto and crypto-to-crypto trading, custody, and financial services related to virtual assets, per the report.

 

Specifically, the regulator has said that the ban includes "anything of value that acts as a substitute for currency, that can be digitally traded or transferred and can be used for payment or investment purposes."

 

It is not clear why the QFCRA has taken this move. The Block has reached out to the regulator for comments and will update this story if we hear back.



In 2018, Qatar’s central bank
said that bitcoin trading in illegal in the country. “This cryptocurrency is highly volatile and can be used for financial crimes and electronic hacking as well as risk loss of value because there are no guarantors or assets,” it said at the time.
