World’s 18th largest cryptocurrency exchange Gate.io which earlier based in China now also moved in Korea.
South Korea’s National Assembly announced yesterday that ban on ICOs be lifted and regulators will take a soft approach for the cryptocurrencies as financial assets.
According to an official of the local market
“If the Korean virtual money market moves into the system and Chinese exchanges receive real name accounts in the future, the Chinese exchanges will become a big threat to Korean exchanges.”
Experts assuming that if the mass incoming of these foreign companies cannot be regulated properly then it definitely become a threat for the local market as if Chinese exchanges dominate then they control entire digital currency market of Korea which is a serious point to ponder.
