比特币增长最快市场:塞浦路斯警告比特币使用风险

在2014年2月7日,塞浦路斯发表了最新的重量级通告,警告全国对比特币的使用。塞浦路斯央行在这篇报告里称“央行将不支持任何属于描述范围的行为,除非行为者可以保证活动的合法性。没有取得资格许可的活动都是违法的。”

这使得持有比特币合法,但是警告持有者不得进行任何没有适当许可的相关金融活动。这份证明一如既往的警告比特币玩家比特币价格的不稳定性以及相关企业缺乏用户保护,与其他央行的陈述相呼应。

塞浦路斯被认为是比特币潜在增长最快的市场,比特币价格的上涨也应该是塞浦路斯引起的,自从塞浦路斯银行呈现破产迹象,出现了银行挤兑风波,推土机堵银行大门后,比特币价格就乘风扶摇直上,再加上其首都尼科西亚大学接受比特币作为学费以后。价格更是达到高潮。然而,周五的声明使塞浦路斯加入了其他谨慎性国家的行列,像中国、俄罗斯、印度尼西和德国。

It’s not a good day for Bitcoin.

Over on Japan-based Mt. Gox, one of the major exchanges for trading the virtual currency, withdrawals have been halted and the price has dropped.

Several thousand miles away on the tiny island of Cyprus, the central bank has weighed in on the virtual currency too, and it’s not happy.

Throughout this year, Cyprus has been touted in the media as fertile ground for Bitcoin growth. Remember that, since March, it’s had capital controls in place, leaving residents cash-restricted.

That left Bitcoin with a potentially starring-role.  In November the University of Nicosia in Cyprus said it would accept bitcoin as payment for everything from tuition to rent to books at the bookstore and meals in the cafeteria. It even started offering a Master’s course in virtual currencies.

In December, the island’s finance minister, Harris Georgiades, said Cyprus’s troubles could turn it into a financial innovation hub, and Bitcoin was proof of that.

“Well, it’s a very exciting prospect. I have to say that personally I’m still learning regarding this bitcoin phenomenon because I think it’s a very interesting phenomenon on a global scale. And it’s very interesting and encouraging that a private university in Cyprus has been bold enough to take this step,” Mr. Georgiades told CNBC in December.

There was even talk in local media of a Bitcoin stores being opened across Cyprus.

Now the central bank has weighed in, and it doesn’t like Bitcoin at all.

It said in a statement (in Greek) Friday that it “does not approve any activity that falls within its purview, unless it can ensure the legality of that activity. Activities without the necessary licensing are in breach of legislation.”

So, is the institution –accused of failing to control the economy on the tiny Mediterranean island and allowing rampant tax avoidance and money laundering- saying Bitcoin is illegal?

Not quite. Instead it warns that there are big risks associated with using the currency.

As an example, it cites the absence of legal guarantees around the ownership of Bitcoin, high volatility in its price, and possible use of Bitcoin for “abuse for illegal activities.”

Where does this leave the keen Bitcoin holders in Cyprus? Warned, but still legal, it seems.
