South Korea, Next to Regulate Cryptocurrencies!

In our prior blogs, we talked about Ukraine and Canada starting to regulate cryptocurrencies. South Korea is the next one to join. The main concern for most of these countries was the use of crypto for money launder and funding for illegal activities. The government needed to set regulations which allow the usage of cryptocurrencies on a day to day basis while deterring it from being a medium for money launder and illegal activities.

As mentioned by CNN

The full regulation of crypto was postponed but minor regulations were implemented.

Such regulations include:

ICO

Crypto Now

With crypto becoming more and more popular, South Korea had to take action and not delay any further.  Like Canada, the regulation tightens the security for crypto exchanges by requiring more information KYC (Know Your Client), AML (Anti-Money Laundering) and customer verification policies.

Aside from tightening regulations on customers, the regulations for crypto exchanges were changed. Prior to the change, crypto exchanges were able to purchase an operation license for $20 and would be able to freely operate. With the new regulations, crypto exchanges will need approval from both the South Korean Cybersecurity Agencies and Financial Intelligence department for operation.

Aside from the use of crypto, ICO’s as mentioned above was previously banned. The National Assembly is working on a plan to remove the ban to allow ICOs. This would be a huge change to the Korean market if ICO’s were to be allowed.

How does this affect you?

With Countries, such as Canada and Ukraine, starting to create regulations to allow crypto to become “mainstream”, the price of crypto will start to rise. Once the majority of the countries accept crypto, the price will surge. By the time the surge happens, if you have not already invested in crypto, it will be too late to profit. Right now is the optimal time to invest in crypto.
