Korean Regulatory Overhaul
On June 4, the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) of the Financial Services Commission (FSC) held a meeting with leaders of domestic crypto exchanges. During this meeting, they conveyed a set of “recommended guidelines” for exchanges to maximize their chances of having their registration approved. On June 11, Upbit announced it would be removing the fiat on-ramps for five tokens. The exchange also posted a “watch list” of 25 tokens. On June 18, it delisted 24 of them. On June 17, Bithumb announced it will terminate trading for four tokens on July 5.
Tokens that have been delisted so far generally fall into one of the following categories: tokens that are listed on less than five exchanges, dark coins (privacy coins like Monero), tokens directly issued by exchanges, and tokens whose protocols are no longer being developed. Read More.
