The federal reserve authority of South Korea has scored permission to intensify its involvement in investigating digital currency service providers with the ongoing debates on digital property policies in the region. 

Last Thursday, national media The Korea Herald published that the nation’s Federal Reserve authority will be assigned permission to scrutinize companies concerned with digital currency services. 

South Korea’s federal reserve authority has, so far, competed with the nation’s economic administrator, the Financial Services Commission, in matters relating to digital currency control. Nonetheless, the FSC is to make conclusions in control regulations of the crypto service space. 

The federal reserve authority noted worries over monetary stability dangers from stable coins and now has the authority to call for trade information from digital currency trading companies. 

South Korea’s central bank’s attained authority to demand information from crypto firms was verified by an administrator of the National Assembly’s Political Affairs Committee in the previous week. The FSC is anticipated to note its stance at a subcommittee gathering slated for Tuesday. 

As indicated in the publication the gathering will cover a review of the introduction of the nation’s digital property regulations. 

Democratic Party legislator Kim Han-gyu, the individual behind the nation’s digital currency ruling, the Crypto Assets Act stated that the FSC agrees that it is important for the nation’s Federal Reserve authority to own the permission to demand information, yet, has declined to add it in its bill.
