Altcoin fear: According to media reports, cryptocurrency traders in South Korea are facing a “bank run” situation in which regulation could close many smaller exchanges in the country and potentially wipe out around 42 so-called kimchi coins. Foreign and local exchanges must register as legal trading platforms by September 24th, but many are struggling to meet the requirements.
Threatens: “A situation resembling a bank run is expected shortly before the cut-off date, as investors cannot cash out their holdings of ‘altcoins’ that are only listed on small exchanges,” said Lee Chul-yi, head of Foblgate. a midsize exchange in the country, said the Financial Times. “You will suddenly be poor. I wonder if regulators can handle the side effects.”
Calculate the costs: According to the FT, South Korean cryptocurrency traders expect losses of $ 2.6 billion as the country’s regulator, the Financial Services Commission (FSC), cracks down on two-thirds of South Korean crypto exchanges. Around 40 of South Korea’s estimated 60 crypto operators are expected to close.
Why it matters: South Korea is one of the largest crypto markets in the world and the Korean won is the third most popular currency for bitcoin trading after the dollar and euro, accounting for about 5% of global trade, the FT reported, citing data from Coinhills. The regulations will also affect global exchanges that offer won trading. The FSC has sent a notice to 27 overseas crypto exchanges conducting business for Korean traders. Last month, the world’s largest crypto exchange Binance discontinued its won-to-crypto trading service.

Big if true: Rumors are buzzing that Ukraine could adopt Bitcoin
🙊 Rumors are circulating on social media that following some over-excited media reports, Ukraine could follow El Salvador in adopting Bitcoin as legal tender.
🙉 In a report by the London business newspaper CityAM, entitled “Ukraine Will Be the Next Country to Establish Bitcoin as Legal Tender,” experts argued that the European country is preparing to make Bitcoin the official currency – although there is little evidence to support it there that this is actually in the works. Recall that it was CityAM that was recently reported that online retail giant Amazon AMZN was ready to roll out bitcoin and crypto support – something Amazon later refused to do.
🙈 Last week, the Ukrainian parliament voted in an almost unanimous vote in favor of legalizing and regulating Bitcoin and cryptocurrency, sparking speculation that it could soon step foot first into crypto adoption.
