Crypto Industry News:
Chinese Internet giant Tencent intends to open a virtual bank based on Blockchain technology after the Hong Kong Securities Commission (SFC) has approved the new license.
Speaking on Friday at the Blockchain World Summit in Wuzhen, China, Yige Cai, Blockchain Director at Tencent, said the company’s virtual bank has received a green light from SFC. According to the Chinese side of Sina Finance, the company will create a team supporting a banking platform based on Blockchain.
“Hong Kong’s new regulations and the oversight of transactions related to digital assets confirm the importance of Blockchain technology and digital assets, which is good news for the entire industry,” Cai said at his summit.
To date, SFC has granted licenses to virtual banks to 12 entities. The list includes Infinium Limited, a company owned by Tencent and ICBC, and two other Hong Kong institutional investors.
Tencent renamed Infinium to Fusion Bank in July after receiving a license in May. According to the Cai report, he did not reveal any further details about the virtual bank, while highlighting Tencent’s existing Blockchain technology projects, including supply chain financing for McDonald’s global restaurant chain.
