Банк Англии’s Jon Cunliffe Warns Crypto Is Closer to Becoming a Threat to Global Financial Stability

Sir Jon Cunliffe, Банк Англии’s deputy governor for financial stability, talked about bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general on BBCs Today program Monday.

He warned that cryptocurrencies, включая биткойн, are getting closer to becoming a threat to global financial stability due to their rapid growth. Cunliffe said:

My judgement is theyre not, at the moment, a financial stability risk, but they are growing very fast, and theyre becoming integrated more into what I might call the traditional financial system.

The Bank of England official warned that crypto assetsvolatility could soon spill over into traditional markets. He urges regulators to take action, констатация:

So the point at which they pose a risk is getting closer. I think regulators and legislators need to think very hard about that.

В июле, Cunliffe сказал that crypto assets werenot of the size that they would cause financial stability risk, and theyre not connected deeply into the standing financial system.

He also explained Monday that companies such as Meta, ранее Facebook, are launching their own stablecoins, such as Diem. “There are proposals for new players who are not banks, including some of the big tech platforms and some of the social media platforms, to come into the world and issue their own money. But I think that those proposals dont yet exist at scale, so I dont think were behind the curve here,” Cunliffe opined.

The deputy governor for financial stability also commented on central bank digital currencies (CBDC). “The reason why we might consider, why were actively exploring introducing the digital pound, digital form of Bank of England cash, is that the way we live and the way we transact is changing all the time,” he described.

The question is whether the public at large, businesses and households, should really have the option of using and holding the safest form of moneywhich is Bank of England moneyin their everyday lives. Что’s the question that well explore in this taskforce between the Treasury and the Bank of England over the next year,” добавил он.

В октябре, Cunliffe warned that crypto could collapse, citing its lack of intrinsic value and extreme price volatility. He then urged regulators to urgently establish rules for crypto assets.

The Bank of England also issued a отчет in October stating that crypto assets poselimiteddirect risks to the financial stability of the U.K.s financial system. “Cryptoasset and associated markets and services continue to grow and to develop rapidly. Such assets are becoming increasingly integrated into the financial system. The FPC [Банк Англии’s Financial Policy Committee] judges that direct risks to the stability of the U.K. financial system from cryptoassets are currently limited.
