Of the six banks mentioned earlier, only three – Shinhan Bank, Nonghyup Bank and Industrial Bank of Korea – provide accounts to customers of Crypto Exchanges. And only four of the 25 South Korean currency exchange exchanges changed anonymous accounts to accounts with real names. E no reira, the new legislative requirements correspond to Bithumb, Upbit, Coinone and Korbit.
According to Asia Economic, Shinhan Bank, which serves Bithumb, also decided to temporarily exclude the exchange from the process of creating accounts with real names. The representative of the bank explained that this measure was taken in connection with the fact that “the exchange is checked by the police” in the case of last year’s robbery.
Small and medium-sized exchanges that provide corporate accounts, rather than virtual ones, regulate other requirements. According to the Yonhap publication, at the moment, the use of corporate accounts is allowed provided that the exchanges can fully support their obligations to prevent money laundering, as well as to confirm the identification of customers. E hau atu, they will be subjected to “thorough checks by banks and financial authorities.” Tera ra, many exchanges did not receive confirmation of new accounts and told Yonhap reporters that they would suspend transactions if the situation did not change. According to the Korean Blockchain Association, about 787,600 customers use the services of such exchanges, whose assets are currently in limbo.
