According to Bitcoin Archive, South Korea has proposed requiring BTC and cryptocurrency trading organizations to formally divide their clients’ crypto-related possessions and other depositions.

On Tuesday, November 22, the news was released. South Korea’s regulating department over crypto and related businesses take aims to continuously improve client safety in the cryptocurrency sphere. 

The tech advances

Despite being a small country, South Korea dominates the world’s cryptocurrency market. The nation’s intense passion for cutting-edge innovations and technology is evident in its high attraction for crypto and electronic possessions.

In South Korea, which is known for its financial industry’s enthusiasm for blockchain, about thirty percent of all crypto exchanges have been created.

South Korea has put its citizens’ safety above all else because of its creativity and interest in crypto and related tech. To control cryptocurrency services and businesses, the nation has continuously passed laws and regulations. 

The nation intends to implement a service where clients’ money is kept separate from internal possessions. Additionally, under the proposed plans, the FSC and other governments might have the ability to analyze and keep track of how traders manage the assets of their clients, enshrining modern rules and laws. 

New laws

According to the proposed law, no exchange would be permitted to decide to deny a withdrawal request. It also suggests that declaratory exchanges could be punished with fines of up to $74,000.

The rules for crypto exchanges have been ratified by South Korea. The country formally released 2 regulative programs for crypto traders on January 23, 2018.

The document also included anti-money laundering (AML) road maps created by the department of finance in Korea for any banking company using crypto as a trading asset. 

After conducting a thorough investigation on all the South Korean banks handling cryptocurrency accounts, the Financial Supervisory Service (FSS) and the FIU confirmed the regulatory guidelines and the crypto exchanges upheld them.

Investigations by the government, however, revealed that some traders accumulated stockpiles using clients’ possessions. It was discovered that the majority of traders do not distinguish their assets from depositions made by users.
