South Korea pushes for full-scale commercialization of digital currency

South Korea pushes for full-scale commercialization of digital currencyThis week, the South Korean government announced that it will offer KRW3 trillion (USD2.65 billion) in financial support over the next three years to develop and promote the financial technology sector in the country. This included the system expansion of digital currency like bitcoin.

“The government will push for the systemization of digital currency on a full scale in tandem with a global trend in the U.S., Japan and other countries,” said Financial Services Commission chairman Yim Jong-yong, according to the Korea Herald.

However, this isn’t the first time the country and local institutions have ventured to adopt bitcoin and its underlying technology, the block chain.

Recently, South Korean credit card company KB Koomkin announced plans to integrate a block chain identity tool—developed by bitcoin start-up Coinplug—into its credit card on boarding services. The identity solution will allow KB Kookim Card users to add, verify or revoke identities tied to the credit card.

“Block chain technology is emerging as the core infrastructure of future finance,” Yim said. “We will take the lead in the convergence of new emerging technologies such as digital currencies and block chains and financial service.”
