Next week, the South Korean crypto market will usher in “suppressive” supervision, and the deadline for South Korean cryptocurrency exchanges to meet the requirements for continued operations is approaching.

Up to now, the South Korean government has announced a list of 28 cryptocurrency exchanges certified by the South Korean Information Security Management System (ISMS), of which only Upbit, Bithumb, Coinone, and Korbit can provide users with Korean won trading services. South Korea K-Bank, NACF banks (NH Bank) and Shinhan Bank also next Friday (September 24) the decision whether or not to encrypt the four Korean Stock Exchange Upbit, Bithumb, Coinone and Korbit renewal.

Under the heavy pressure of supervision, the South Korean cryptocurrency market may have more than half of the cryptocurrency exchanges facing the risk of being closed, and will face losses of more than 3 trillion won (US$2.6 billion). Zhao Yanxing, chairman of the Korea Financial Consumers Federation, said that trading suspensions and asset freezes on many small exchanges are expected to cause heavy losses to investors. Some industry insiders have warned that “the Korean cryptocurrency market may be similar to a bank run.”

Tavanir said that he hopes that power consumption will decrease by the end of summer, creating conditions for the operation of authorized digital currency miners. Iran recognized cryptocurrency mining as a legal industrial activity in July 2019, and relevant entities engaged in mining activities need to hold a license from the Iranian Ministry of Industry, Mines and Trade. However, in order to alleviate Iran’s electrical power and prevent power outages, former Iranian President Rouhani ordered a total ban on all cryptocurrency mining in May this year until the end of summer.
