Bitfinex与汇丰银行达成合作关系-okfine区块链

中文编辑:okfine资讯

10月6日,Diar的前编辑兼The Block的首席分析师Larry Cermak报告说,领先的加密交换Bitfinex在汇丰银行获得了一个银行合作伙伴,汇丰银行是一家总部位于伦敦的价值1330亿美元的银行巨头。

“Bitfinex现在通过Global Trading Solutions的私人账户与汇丰银行合作。如果你问我,非常合适。值得一提的是,所有欧元,日元和英镑的存款都暂停了,但Bitfinex预计这种情况会在一周内恢复正常,“Cermak说。

汇丰为什么要容纳Bitfinex?

作为最古老的加密货币交易所之一,Bitfinex经历了交易所可能遇到的一些最困难的挑战,特别是在日本,韩国和美国等主要加密货币市场明确加密货币监管之前。

交易所与台湾银行的冲突已有充分证据,2017年4月,Bitfinex对美国银行巨头富国银行(Wells Fargo)提起诉讼,要求阻止Bitfinex银行账户存款,并扰乱业务运营。

“采取法律行动的决定是因为我们不能允许这个行业的先例,清算所可以破坏符合现行规则的所有指标的企业。如果我们允许他们简单地转换交换机并破坏业务,那么比特币行业就会出现超越Bitfinex的先例,因此我们认为现在是采取行动的适当时机,“Bitfinex当时表示。

从那以后,Bitfinex已经离开台湾搬迁到加勒比地区,并且在5月份,彭博社报道说,该交易所与Noble Bank合作处理其客户发送的交易。

然而,贵金银行宣布在1月份重组债务的原则性协议后申请破产,而Bitfinex唯一的银行合作伙伴消失了。

汇丰银行实际上是自2017年富国银行以来Bitfinex获得的第一个合适的银行合作伙伴。如果Bitfinex和汇丰银行之间的交易能够在整个长期内持续下去,它将为Bitfinex的运营带来一定程度的稳定性。过去四年安全。

Bitfinex通讯总监卡斯帕拉斯穆森在接受The Block采访时表示,该公司无法评论交易所与汇丰银行之间合作关系的性质。

“Bitfinex没有,也从未对实际或潜在的业务关系发表评论,现在不会发生变化,”Rasmussen 表示。

鉴于Bitfinex每日2亿美元的交易量以及交易所从国际客户获得的法定存款金额,交易所不可能通过私人银行账户单方面宣布其作为银行合作伙伴对汇丰银行的依赖。

通过严格的知情客户(KYC)和反洗钱(AML)要求,交易所极有可能通过严格监管的渠道获得汇丰银行的银行服务。

对行业的积极影响

日本和韩国等主要市场的大多数交易所已经在各自国家的大型金融机构和商业银行获得了银行服务。如果Bitfinex能够维持与汇丰银行的合作伙伴关系,它将对加密市场的稳定性产生积极影响。

On Oct. 6, Larry Cermak, former editor at Diar and head analyst at The Block, reported that leading crypto exchange Bitfinex obtained a banking partner in HSBC, a $133 billion banking giant based in London.

“Bitfinex is now banking with HSBC through a private account of Global Trading Solutions. Very good fit if you ask me. It’s also worth mentioning that all EUR, JPY and GBP deposits are paused but Bitfinex ‘expects the situation to normalize within a week’” Cermak said.

Why is HSBC Accommodating Bitfinex?

As one of the oldest cryptocurrency exchanges, Bitfinex has experienced some of the most difficult challenges an exchange could face, particularly before major cryptocurrency markets like Japan, South Korea, and the US offered clarity on cryptocurrency regulation.

The exchange’s conflict with Taiwanese banks is well-documented, and in April 2017, Bitfinex initiated a lawsuit against Wells Fargo, a US-based banking giant, for blocking deposits to the banking account of Bitfinex and disrupting operations of the business.

“The decision to initiate legal action is because we cannot allow precedents in this industry where clearing houses can disrupt businesses that are by all metrics complying with the rules in place. If we allow them to simply flip a switch and disrupt business, then there becomes a precedent in the bitcoin industry beyond just Bitfinex, so we believe it is the appropriate time to take action,” Bitfinex said at the time.

Since then, Bitfinex has moved out of Taiwan and relocated to the Caribbean and in May, Bloomberg reported that the exchange partnered with Noble Bank to process transactions sent by its clients.

However, Noble Bank has announced to file for bankruptcy following an in-principle deal to restructure debt in January and with that, the only banking partner of Bitfinex vanished.

HSBC is really the first proper banking partner Bitfinex has obtained since Wells Fargo in 2017. If the deal between Bitfinex and HSBC can be sustained throughout the long-term, it will bring a level of stability to the operations of Bitfinex which the exchange failed to secure in the past four years.

Speaking to The Block, Kasper Rasmussen, director of communications at Bitfinex said that the firm cannot comment on the nature of the partnership between the exchange and HSBC.

“Bitfinex does not, and has never, commented on actual or potential business relationships and this is not subject to change now,” Rasmussen stated.

Given the the $200 million dollar daily trading volume of Bitfinex and the amount of fiat deposits the exchange receives from its international customers, it is not possible for the exchange to unilaterally announce its dependence on HSBC as a banking partner through a private banking account.

It is highly probable that the exchange, with strict Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) requirements, obtained the banking service of HSBC through a strictly regulated channel.

Positive Impact on the Industry

Already, most exchanges in major markets like Japan and South Korea have obtained banking services by large financial institutions and commercial banks in their respective countries. If Bitfinex can sustain its partnership with HSBC, it will have a positive impact on the stability of the crypto market.
