新加坡主权基金淡马锡(Temasek)也加入了天秤座的行列

2020-5-18 11:26

 

天秤座协会宣布,淡马锡、范式和慢风投资加入为会员。该协会管理着由Facebook创建的区块链平台Libra的数字货币和支付网络。


虽然天秤座以前失去了重量级成员,如Visa,万事达,eBay和贝宝,加上三个新的实体,协会现在有27个成员。


淡马锡是新加坡的主权财富基金,截至2019年3月,其资产超过2,300亿美元。它在区块链和数字支付领域一直很活跃。几个月前,淡马锡、摩根大通和新加坡金融管理局(MAS)完成了区块链多币种支付的试验。


该公司还与新加坡汇丰银行(HSBC Singapore)和新加坡交易所(Singapore Exchange)合作开展一个区块链项目,为固定收益证券提供服务。与此同时,淡马锡的投资部门Heliconia Capital持有区块链资本市场平台iSTOX的股份。


今年3月,安东尼•刘易斯(Antony Lewis)加入淡马锡,担任bb0 venture building副董事。他曾任胜三公司的研究主管,在涉足数字资产之前,曾为作为代币发行的货币提供咨询。淡马锡也是胜三公司的投资者。


一个有趣的角度。中国政府对天秤座感到担忧,并加快了自己推出央行数字货币的步伐。新加坡和中国是重要的贸易伙伴,中国占淡马锡投资总额的四分之一以上。


另外两家成员公司是Paradigm和Slow Ventures, Libra认为这两家投资公司将推动区块链和数字资产市场的发展。Slow Ventures是技术解决方案Slack、Postmates和Airtable的支持者。


天秤”三个新成员的加入协会,显示了我们的承诺,建立一个多样化的组组织将有助于治理、技术路线图和发射准备天秤支付系统,“说但丁Disparte,副主席和天秤政策和通信主管协会。


上月,天秤座公司宣布对其计划进行重大调整,并发布了另一份白皮书,以争取监管机构的支持。本月早些时候,天秤座协会任命斯图尔特·利维为首席执行官。李维有着良好的合规记录,曾在汇丰控股担任首席法律官。


同时,在过去一年加入天秤座协会的新成员还包括小母牛国际、Checkout.com、Shopify和Tagomi。

 

The Libra Association announced that TemasekParadigm, and Slow Ventures joined as members. The Association governs the digital currency and payments network of Libra, the blockchain platform founded by Facebook. 

While Libra previously lost heavyweight members such as Visa, Mastercard, eBay, and Paypal, with the addition of the three new entities, the Association now has 27 members

Temasek is Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund with more than $230 billion in assets as of March 2019. It’s been active in the blockchain and digital payments space. A few months ago, Temasek, along with JPMorgan and the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), completed a blockchain trial for multi-currency payments

The company is also working with HSBC Singapore and the Singapore Exchange (SGX) on a blockchain project to service fixed income securities. Meanwhile, Temasek’s investment arm Heliconia Capital has a stake in iSTOX, the blockchain capital markets platform. 

In March, Antony Lewis joined Temasek as Associate Director for blockchain venture building. He was previously Director of Research at R3 and advised on money issued as tokens before venturing into digital assets. Temasek is also an R3 investor.

One interesting angle. The Chinese government finds Libra concerning and it has accelerated its own roll out of central bank digital currency. Singapore and China are important trading partners and China represents more than a quarter of Temasek’s investments.

The other two members, Paradigm and Slow Ventures, are investment firms that Libra believes would fuel the development of the blockchain and digital assets market. Slow Ventures is a backer of tech solutions Slack, Postmates, and Airtable.

“The addition of three new members to the Libra Association, shows our commitment to building a diverse group of organizations that will contribute to the governance, technological roadmap and launch readiness for the Libra payment system,” said Dante Disparte, Vice Chairman and head of policy and communications for the Libra Association.

Last month Libra announced significant changes to its plans and released another whitepaper in a bid to woo regulators. And earlier this month, the Libra Association appointed Stuart Levey as the CEO. Levey has a strong compliance record and worked as Chief Legal Officer at HSBC Holdings. 

Meanwhile, some other new members who have joined Libra Association over the past year include Heifer InternationalCheckout.comShopify, and Tagomi
