Regulatory News

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) has finalized the regulatory framework for stablecoins, requiring issuers to meet multiple requirements such as disclosure.

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) announced on its official website that it has finalized the regulatory framework for stablecoins. MAS’s regulatory framework for stablecoins will apply to single-currency stablecoins (SCS) pegged to the Singapore dollar or any G10 currency. Issuers of such SCS must meet the following key requirements: 1. Value Stability: The reserve assets of SCS must meet requirements in terms of composition, valuation, custody, and auditing to ensure high value stability; 2. Capital: Issuers must maintain minimum capital and liquid assets to reduce bankruptcy risk and orderly wind down operations when necessary; 3. Redemption at Face Value: Issuers must refund the face value of SCS to holders within five working days after redemption requests; 4. Disclosure: Issuers must provide appropriate disclosures to users, including information on the value stability mechanism of SCS, the rights of SCS holders, and the results of reserve asset audits.

Only stablecoin issuers that meet all the requirements under this framework can apply to MAS for recognition of their stablecoins and label them as “MAS-regulated stablecoins.” This label will allow users to easily distinguish MAS-regulated stablecoins from other digital payment tokens. Anyone misrepresenting tokens as “MAS-regulated stablecoins” may be penalized under MAS’s regulatory framework for stablecoins and may be listed in MAS’s investor alert list. Users should make wise decisions in trading stablecoins not regulated under the MAS framework, considering the associated risks.

In order to expedite the trial process, the judge continued the trial after a short one-hour recess at noon for two consecutive days. During the trial, the court conducted a court investigation into the facts alleged in the indictment, and the prosecution and defense fully expressed their opinions on the facts, evidence, and sentencing of the case under the court’s guidance.

Dongyang People’s Court published an announcement on its WeChat official account entitled “Announcement of Funds Recovery in the Case of Zhou Sheng, He Yan, and others involved in Fraud”, stating that based on the effective criminal judgments such as Zhe 0783 Criminal Initial 560 and the verification and registration of information, the funds involved in the case that have been collected in place will be recovered in the first round of funds recovery work. The specific matters are announced as follows: the registration for funds recovery work will start from the date of the announcement and last for one month. The objects of funds recovery are investors who have invested in fake digital currency platforms such as SIE (later renamed BTUE), CFEX, LKF, GDbit, and have suffered overall losses. The amount of funds to be recovered in this round is calculated based on the amount of losses suffered and the funds already collected, using a unified refund ratio. The funds recovery will be carried out through the WeChat official account by publishing information, providing a link and scanning a QR code to enter the APP for registration, and then the background will review and confirm the information. After the review is approved, the funds will be transferred with the assistance of the Dongyang Branch of the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China.

According to the official blog, Web3 gaming platform Immutable announced that its Immutable zkEVM testnet has officially launched. Existing smart contracts and Solidity code can be directly migrated to Immutable’s zkEVM testnet environment for free.
