Policymakers are beginning to consider the possible economic and regulatory ramifications of the adoption of digital currencies, together with the potential impact on the international monetary system. My main message today is simple: the soul of money belongs neither to a Big Tech nor to an anonymous ledger. The soul of money is trust. So, the question becomes: which institution is best-placed to generate trust?
I will argue that central banks have been and continue to be the institutions best-placed to provide trust in the digital age. This is also the best way to ensure an efficient and inclusive financial system to the benefit of all.
Part of that convention is that central banks provide, and critically are seen to provide, an open, neutral, trusted and stable platform. Private companies use their ingenuity and dynamism to develop new payment methods and financial products and services. This combination has been a powerful driver of innovation and welfare. The realization of the vision of an open monetary and financial system that harnesses technology for the benefit of all.
Gatekeeping the gatekeepers — big tech and banking licenses The growing interconnectedness between the traditional financial system and cryptos is demonstrated by the potential for, and the implications of, Big Tech firms and other digital asset firms taking stakes in or owning banks and financial services companies. The findings are based on publicly available licensing requirements in seven jurisdictions covering Asia, Europe and North America. The paper compares the merits of bank ownership by tech firms in relation to ownership by commercial or industrial non-financial companies NFCs.
Unburdened by legacy infrastructure, tech firms can offer superior technology and user-friendly apps that may allow them to reach more consumers and perform various aspects of the banking business onboarding, deposit-taking, lending, payments more efficiently than incumbents, including commercial or industrial NFCs that may own banks.
Nevertheless, as part of the authorization process — and subsequently through continuing supervision — authorities need to examine the ability and willingness of tech firms to deliver on their stated objectives. A particular policy concern is whether the risks of allowing tech firms to own banks can be offset through licensing requirements without undermining the potential benefits they bring to consumers.
Policy responses may differ across countries, but they are likely to be guided by three main considerations: the policy priorities of each jurisdiction; the inherent risks posed across and within each group of tech firms; and the applicability of the existing licensing regime in addressing the risks of tech-owned banks.
It found that mistakes had not stemmed from regulatory grey areas or misinterpretations of risk, regulation or compliance. It did not know what management information to expect, did not understand the role of the regulator and fundamentally did not understand banking. The potential relevance to, say, a Big Tech owning a bank is clear. Decentralized autonomous organizations The emergence of decentralized autonomous organizations DAOs represents a revolutionary change in the ways people and businesses can organize.
DAOs leverage blockchain technology and are decentralized models of control and governance. They are characterized by transparency, clarity of rule, and process-driven decisions, primarily using smart contracts on distributed ledgers. Once a DAO has been established, via a blockchain, participants take ownership of its token, which allows them to participate in the system.
Close to 5, DAOs have been formed to date, and this is expected to grow exponentially. Many involve pooling digital money together to purchase assets, both physical and digital. ConstitutionDAO was established seven days prior to the auctioning of one of the 11 remaining copies of the U.
The intent was to purchase and house it at a protected public location. These are just two examples of how quickly DAOs can be created, and of how powerful they can be. Central to a DAO is transparency. Anyone can see which individual wallet address owns tokens. Tokens allow for people to vote on proposals. Anyone can create a proposal. Simply stated, and in an ideal setting, it is egalitarian. One challenge to the model, however, is its democratic nature which can make DAOs overly deliberate and result in a slower process compared with more traditional organizations.
The regulatory landscape for DAOs is nearly non-existent at the state level. Wyoming, which has led the United States on regulation for blockchain and cryptocurrency, recently codified rules for DAOs residing in the state. No other state enables this yet. Further, there is a movement afoot for corporations in the cryptocurrency sector to dissolve and become DAOs.
With potentially hawkish regulation on the horizon for cryptocurrency, DAOs, by their very nature, are code-based, self-running, leaderless entities running via a decentralized network, which permits actions based on how users interact under brassbound, predefined rules.
Theoretically, under the current regulatory landscape there is nothing the law can do about such an entity. A corporation converted to a DAO would no longer be in control of the platform, which reverts to a completely new decentralized model, unlike anything regulated currently. The SEC is reportedly looking into true DAOs such as Uniswap, which operates in the decentralized finance DeFi sector as a decentralized exchange DEX and is a code-based organization that matches buyers and sellers of cryptocurrency.
One area of focus is lending pools, where users will provide their assets for other users to trade, which produces healthy yields, just as banks provide interest on assets. This may fall into the Howey Test investment contract realm. Joe Raczynski Technologist and futurist, manager of technical client management at Thomson Reuters.
Financial crime There is also concern that crypto firms can, and are, being used as conduits for facilitating financial crime. Many such firms, if not most, are outside the regulatory perimeter and have often found stepping into the regulated world challenging.
One example of this is Binance, which has suffered multiple setbacks in its attempts to become regulated in several jurisdictions. The FCA currently has a limited role in registering UK-based crypto-asset exchanges for anti-money laundering purposes. Exchanges can be used to launder the proceeds of crime and we must contribute to the global effort to address financial crime by demanding that businesses with a UK presence meet the necessary standards.
While some of the business which have applied to us have shown evidence of adequate systems and controls, many others fell well short of acceptable standards, and many have withdrawn their applications as we have scrutinized them. The state of those firms ignoring the requirement to register with us or which have moved off-shore to avoid registration could be even worse. Charles Randell Chair of the UK Financial Conduct Authority and the Payment Services Regulator, September New research shows that decentralized finance DeFi protocols in particular are becoming an increasingly significant route for money launderers.
This refers to cyber-criminal activity such as darknet market sales or ransomware attacks in which profits are virtually always derived in cryptocurrency rather than fiat currency. It is more difficult to measure how much fiat currency derived from offline crime — traditional drug trafficking, for example — is converted into cryptocurrency to be laundered.
The couple allegedly conspired to launder , bitcoin stolen after a hacker broke into Bitfinex and initiated more than 2, unauthorized transactions. In another high-profile example last year, former partners and associates of the ransomware group REvil  caused a widespread gas shortage on the U.
East Coast when it used encryption software called DarkSide to launch a cyber attack on the Colonial Pipeline. The biggest difference between fiat and cryptocurrency-based money laundering is that, due to the inherent transparency of blockchains, it is much easier to trace how criminals move cryptocurrency between wallets and services in their efforts to convert their funds into cash. Mining pools, high-risk exchanges and mixers also saw substantial increases in value received from illicit addresses.
One of the novel features of DeFi platforms is that visibility and verification of identities of counterparties is not required. Although some platforms have recently introduced know-your-customer KYC verification requirements, these are not always necessary for the platforms to function, even though such requirements are required by law in most jurisdictions.
In addition, some third-party service providers offer additional privacy-enhancement or even law evasion techniques for DeFi users. It can therefore be difficult to trace transactions, increasing the risk of these platforms attracting illegal activities, money laundering, terrorist financing, or circumventing sanctions restrictions.
Cryptos are undoubtedly being used in financial crime, but it still appears that, for instance, cryptocurrencies are substantially less likely to be used for money laundering than fiat currency. That said, the war in Ukraine has raised further questions and concerns about the potential for cryptos to be used in the avoidance of, or non-compliance with, sanctions.
