  • According to a Korean publication, Samsung Securities is one of seven prominent South Korean securities firms that have applied for government clearance to establish a virtual asset exchange.
    The firms want to create a company to establish an exchange in the first half of next year. The Korean media outlet reported an unidentified executive as saying that project negotiations are nearing completion.

    As per the local coverage, Samsung Securities had been researching ways to establish and manage a securities token trading platform but was unable to find the necessary staff to move forward last year. Mirae Asset Consulting, a subsidiary of Mirae Asset Securities, South Korea's largest investment banking and stock brokerage firm by market capitalization, is also looking for individuals to work on cryptocurrencies and nonfungible token (NFT) research and development.

    The report also mentioned NH Investment & Securities and Shinhan Financial Investment. Earlier this year, KB Bank announced that it was preparing to launch South Korea's first crypto investment products for ordinary investors.

    The establishment of a supposed virtual asset exchange may be aided by regulatory liberalization implemented by Yoon Seok-government, which took office in March. The effort by the securities firms to build the exchange coincides with plans to enact the Digital Assets Framework Act. This will include both security-type tokens and non-security-type tokens and determine which domestic virtual assets belong in which category, as per the report. The country's Financial Services Commission has already been chastised for its oversight of cryptocurrency exchanges.

    Earlier this month, the South Korean Financial Intelligence Unit discovered that 16 foreign-based crypto exchanges, including KuCoin, Poloniex, and Phemex, were operating without legal approval and initiated a series of actions against them, such as demanding platforms to halt their operations in the nation.
