Further more, The Korea public pension fund is for providing retirement benefits for the country’s education personnel.
More so, report from the Korea Economic Daily reveals the KTCU’s interest to invest in Bitcoin spot ETFs. However, the size of the investment is still yet not certain.
Additionally, this is first instance of a South Korean domestic pension fund allocating capital into cryptocurrency.
Notably, the fund has over $40.2 billion in assets as of Dec 2020.
