Binance to have greater presence in Busan
In Binance’s statement, the exchange also said it plans to establish a greater presence in Busan, aiming to position the city as a digital hub in Asia and a benchmark in the country.
For this reason, developers can submit proposals or blockchain-related projects directly to the Busan city government that may not be considered in other parts of the country due to regulations.
South Korea recently announced new measures involving taxes and even a tax reform to regulate cryptocurrencies, however, these measures would not be enforced within Busan due to the city’s privileged position before the law.
In the face of the historic collapse of the earth, authorities have cracked down more firmly on cryptocurrency exchanges and companies in the country, occasioning a great deal of discontent and concern among cryptocurrency enthusiasts.
