  • South Korea plans to segment virtual asset service providers to strengthen user protection

    According to the South Korean media "Daily Economic News" on June 13th, the South Korean financial regulatory agency is taking measures to redefine the operation of virtual asset service providers (VASPs). The purpose of this move is to restrict the activities of these service providers, which currently include a wide range of services such as listing, trading, settlement, and custody. Last month, the Financial Services Commission and the Financial Supervisory Service submitted a detailed plan on future regulation and legislative measures in the field of cryptocurrency to the National Policy Committee of the National Assembly. The plan was formulated to comply with the upcoming "Virtual Asset User Protection Act." The authorities propose to divide VASP business into specific functions such as trading, listing, custody, management, and consulting and custody services. They suggest that custody and management, as well as consulting and custody services, may be the easiest to separate from existing comprehensive services. At the same time, financial institutions stated that separating custody functions and allocating them to separate entities is a medium- to long-term goal that depends on market and regulatory developments.

  • The digital collection platform that refuted the rumor and ran away was collectively complained, and the price of the collection dropped from 199 yuan to 9 yuan

    A screenshot of a digital collection platform called "extremely arrogant" by netizens announcing its "runaway" has been circulating online recently. The announcement is signed by the Shenlong Shucang operating team of the digital collection platform, which loudly declares, "We're running away! There's no feast that doesn't end. This feast is only left with a mess on the ground. Smart people have already eaten enough and left the table. But you don't want to leave and instead keep tapping your bowl with chopsticks. What you'll get is a huge bill for buying into this feast." Subsequently, Shenlong Shucang released a statement denying the rumor of the platform's runaway on its app. However, complaints about the platform's suspected fundraising and false advertising have been constantly emerging. Recently, several consumers revealed that Shenlong Shucang used the joint development of digital collections with the Xi'an Ming and Qing Shadow Puppet Art Museum as "endorsement," and earned nearly 3 million yuan in one day. But after attracting consumers to buy in, they changed the creators. Moreover, the digital collections purchased by consumers on the platform quickly plummeted in price within a few days. "I only realized after buying the collection that all the prices were falling. Some items had dropped from 199 yuan to 9 yuan," the consumer said.
