The South Korean Crypto community has to adapt to a new suite of regulations.

South Korean Government clarifies the Crypto regulatory roles of the different agencies. After some confusion, the Korean Government has laid out which state and regulatory bodies charged with various aspects of Crypto-related activities.

New Suit of Regulations

Crypto community of South Korea has had to adapt to a new suite of regulations and government frameworks over the past year. Moreover, these tailored to the growing industry. Since the regulatory landscape for Digital assets is undergoing a marked shift, there has been some confusion.

Joint Statement

South Korean government agency or regulatory authority is overseeing various aspects of Crypto-related activities due to this confusion. A local report says that Government will release a joint statement. The statement will clarify these questions for a Society of undeniable Crypto enthusiasts.

The Financial Services Commission

The statement outlines that FSC, the Financial Services Commission, will monitor virtual asset businesses. Moreover, FSC also has to establish regulations for the sector. Finally, FSC has to ensure that Crypto firms are implementing strong anti-money laundering measures.

Eun Sung-soo

Eun Sung-soo is the present head of the FSC. But, unfortunately, he has recently fallen out of favor with the Crypto community. This happened due to his disparaging remarks about the asset class and denial that authorities are necessarily obliged to protect investors just because of Crypto’s local popularity.


He backtracked the situation somewhat by claiming that Government will protect the investors who transfer Crypto holding to the legally registered firms. However, this joint statement today emphasized the personal responsibility remains Paramount.

No recognition

However, Crypto is not still recognized as a currency or financial product in South Korea. Therefore, no one can guarantee Crypto value, and there is always a risk of mass loss due to the volatile exchange environment.

Crypto products and NFTs are unregulated and can be highly risky. There may be no regulatory recourse for any loss from such transactions. Crypto is not a legal tender and is subject to market risks. Readers are advised to seek expert advice and read offer document(s) along with related important literature on the subject carefully before making any kind of investment whatsoever.
