South Korea confirms it will not ban cryptocurrencies

China has recently cracked down intensely on Bitcoin mining, while South Korea has also passed legislation recently.

Earklier this month South Korean justice minister Park Sang-ki said the government was working on a bill that would effectively halt cryptocurrency trading in "domestic exchanges". Real names are to be used in the exchange accounts as well, and anonymity has to be removed altogether.

He added: "There are great concerns regarding virtual currencies and [the] justice ministry is basically preparing a bill to ban cryptocurrency trading through exchanges", he said at a press conference.

These types of regulations should be expected and supported by the cryptocurrency community. Penalties will be levied on people who do not conform to the new regulations. Regulating the industry is a more likely scenario.

Cryptocurrencies wiped off $70 billion from market capitalization at the top of Tuesday's selloff.

It remains to be seen how South Korean customs officials plan to tackle this gap, but most countries will need to grapple with it at some point.

Burned Bears Successfully Treated With Fish Skin
Veterinarians used acupuncture , fish skins and other alternative medical treatments to help wild animals recover from the burns. Peyton and Clifford cut grafts of clean tilapia skin and sewed them directly onto the bears' paws while they were anesthesized.

Bitcoin-related stocks were also hit, with Riot Blockchain (RIOT) down 7.7% on the stock market today, Long Blockchain (LBCC) down 8.1%, Overstock.com (OSTK) 7.2%, Marathon Patent Group (MARA) 7.6%, and Bitcoin Investment Trust (GBTC) 9%.

South Korea is a major hub for cryptocurrency trading.

Bitcoin is down about 29 per cent this month, trading at $10,172 as of 8:35 in London, according to composite pricing compiled by Bloomberg. This never occurred, and the current regulatory stance should exclusively provide safety for those acting to invest in a legal manner. These rules would make the cryptocurrency market much more stable, and would incline financial advisors and investors alike to look more kindly upon the now unsafe market, though it is unclear what impact the regulations would have on the value of different cryptocurrencies.

However, this is unlikely to rain on the parade of Bitcoin, even though many observers believe that the altcoin is hugely overvalued. If crypto were a "fad", it would have disappeared five years ago. The moment may have come when a critical mass of Bitcoin investors sensed its value was on the downswing, causing fear and a snowball effect of selloffs.
