泰国银行向散户投资者发行无代币区块链债券

2020-9-16 12:02

 

上周五,泰国央行(Bank of Thailand)宣布,成功发行了500亿泰铢(合16亿美元)的政府储蓄债券,这些债券利用了区块链技术。该项目旨在使投资者更快地收到债券,降低债券发行的运营成本。


有两种债券都是针对散户投资者的。发行了50亿泰铢(合1.6亿美元)的1泰铢债券,但发行金额仅为100泰铢。三个月前Krungthai银行的电子钱包试用成功。


第二批债券是“Moving Forward”债券,筹资450亿泰铢(合14.4亿美元),最低投资额为1,000泰铢。后者涉及另外三家银行,曼谷银行(Bangkok Bank)、Kasikorn银行(Kasikorn Bank)和暹罗商业银行(Siam Commercial Bank)。


参与该项目的其他组织包括公共债务管理处、泰国证券保管处和泰国债券市场协会。


未来,泰国央行计划将区块链扩展到所有其他政府债券,目标人群包括散户和批发投资者。


两个月前,菲律宾财政部成功地利用区块链发行了另一笔零售国债,规模为39亿美元。


与此同时,泰国银行也在通过Inthanon项目探索将中央银行数字货币(CBDC)用于各种目的。其中一个应用是企业支付,并将与Siam Cement的区块链采购平台集成。它还计划测试与零售商的合作。去年,它与香港金融管理局(Hong Kong Monetary Authority)进行了跨境支付测试。

 

On Friday, the Bank of Thailand announced that it successfully sold 50 billion baht ($1.6 billion) in government savings bonds that leverage blockchain technology. The project aims to enable investors to receive bonds faster and reduce the operating costs of bond issuance. 

There were two bonds that both targeted retail investors. Five billion baht ($160 million) of 1 Baht bonds were sold in amounts of as little as 100 Baht. This follows a successful trial three months ago using the Krungthai Bank e-wallet. 

The second issue was a ‘Moving Forward’ bond, which raised 45 billion Baht ($1.44 billion) and had a 1,000 Baht minimum investment. This latter one involved three additional banks, Bangkok Bank, Kasikorn Bank and Siam Commercial Bank.

Other organizations involved in the project included the Public Debt Management Office, Thailand Securities Depository and the Thai Bond Market Association.

In the future, the Bank of Thailand plans to extend blockchain to all other government bonds and target both retail and wholesale investors.

Two months ago, the Philippines Treasury successfully used blockchain for another retail treasury bond issuance, in that case for $3.9 billion.

Meanwhile, the Bank of Thailand has been exploring using central bank digital currency (CBDC) for various purposes through its Project Inthanon. One application is corporate payments and will integrate with Siam Cement’s blockchain procurement platform. It’s also planning to test working with retailers. And last year, it ran cross border payment tests with the Hong Kong Monetary Authority.
