The employees of the digital asset exchange have up to the end of this month, July to complete withdrawals and close down their accounts from the exchange.
According to the release, the company would completely ban investment accounts from this month as the Staff are said to have submitted a written undertaking to the company that they had closed down their accounts as at last month, June;
“To this end, we received a written oath from our executives and staff and completed measures such as account withdrawal as at last month. From this month on, we strictly manage whether or not employees comply with the regulations through continuous monitoring, self-audit, and internal reporting audit system.”
More details regarding the ban was not provided in the release but it seems to be due to the strict government regulations on crypto related businesses in South Korea. Cryptocurrency exchanges have up till September this year to register with the local financial Authority.
