荷兰衍生品交易所Dribit将转移到对加密货币友好的巴拿马

2020-1-10 16:49

 

出于监管方面的考虑,Deribit公司正在向更温暖的水域转移。


总部位于阿姆斯特丹的加密衍生品交易所周四宣布,将从2月10日起以DRB Panama Inc.的名义在巴拿马运营,这是目前平台Deribit B.V的全资子公司。


该公司声称,荷兰对加密货币公司实施的“非常严格”的反洗钱(AML)规定,刺激了他们的跨大西洋之旅。


该交易所在一篇博文中写道:“如果Deribit符合这些新规定,这将意味着我们必须要求我们当前和未来客户提供大量信息。”


有关Deribit在荷兰地位的传言始于2019年10月,当时该公司首席执行官约翰·詹森(John Jansen)出现在Flippening播客上。在冬天的几个月里,许多荷兰密码公司与荷兰监管机构就该国自行执行欧盟第5号反洗钱指令(AMLD 5)进行了反复交涉。


Deribit写道:“我们认为加密市场应该对大多数人免费开放,新规定将为大多数交易者设置过高的监管和成本壁垒。”


令人惊讶的是,该交易所周四还宣布了更多的“了解你的客户”(KYC)规定。美国客户仍被禁止在这家不处理法定货币的交易所操作。


CoinDesk已经对此发表了评论,并将根据需要更新这篇文章。

 

Deribit is moving to warmer waters, citing regulatory concerns.

 

Announced Thursday, the Amsterdam-based crypto derivatives exchange will operate out of Panama as DRB Panama Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of current platform Deribit B.V., beginning Feb. 10. 

 

The company claimed the Netherlands’ presumed adoption of “very strict” anti-money laundering (AML) regulations applied to cryptocurrency firms spurred the trans-Atlantic voyage.

 

“If Deribit falls under these new regulations, this would mean that we have to demand an extensive amount of information from our current and future customers,” the exchange wrote in a blog post

 

Rumors concerning Deribit’s position within the Netherlands began in October 2019 following CEO John Jansen’s appearance on the Flippening podcast. Over the winter months, numerous Dutch crypto firms engaged in a back and forth with Dutch regulators over the nation’s self-guided implementation of the EU’s 5th Anti-Money Laundering Directive (AMLD 5).

 

“We believe that crypto markets should be freely available to most, and the new regulations would put too-high barriers for the majority of traders, both regulatory and cost-wise,” Deribit wrote. 

Surprisingly, additional know-your-customer (KYC) regulations were also announced by the exchange Thursday. U.S. customers are still barred from operating on the exchange, which does not process fiat currency.
