South Korea has been working hard to regulate Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in the country. Investors are anxious if bitcoin could manage the support at $9,000 or move beyond the expected resistance of $11,300 in the next few days.

Kim had faced a 200,000-strong petition demanding he be fired from his position after the comments, which along with those by justice minister Park Sang-ki, sent shock waves through cryptocurrency markets and sparked public outrage.

"Protocols to protect investors have been what the cryptocurrency markets have been missing and it's what the legislation in South Korea seeks to implement", said John Sarson, managing partner at Blockchain Momentum, which invests in cryptocurrencies and blockchain-related companies.

As traders are becoming increasingly panic-struck in the markets, the government has to take steps to ensure that calm prevails. We have an Introduction to Bitcoin Trading Guide along with a Free Practice Account.

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

Opening cryptocurrency accounts has been banned for weeks while the banks have installed the system, which ensures only real-name bank accounts and matching accounts at cryptocurrency exchanges for deposits and withdrawals. Penalties will be levied on people who do not conform to the new regulations. The country has been trying to tame the heat recently and the South Korean government now believe this is the way to do it. Beijing prohibited financial institutions from trading Bitcoin in December 2013 and closed down all cryptocurrency exchanges in September 2017.

The investment bank aims to price the shares at a level so the float is fully subscribed - and in doing so, that process also sets the company's market value.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee Tuesday the Treasury wants to make sure cryptocurrencies are not used by money launderers. The exchanges will have to create a Suspicious Transaction Report (STR) for these occurrences. Some users believe that the lack of anonymity with defeat the primary objective of using a cryptocurrency.

Tax evasion and money laundering are not going to be accepted by Governments around the world and the true future of Cryptocurrency is not dependent on criminals and money launderers, some crypto houses like G-BiT have seen the writing on the wall and build a system that is compliant with global Anti Money Laundering and Tax Laws. The jury is still out.
