[PRESS RELEASE – Please Read Disclaimer]
ProBit Exchange is currently completing its requirements to finalize its application to secure official Information Security Management System (ISMS) license certifications in their continual efforts to remain one of the most transparent crypto exchanges in Korea.
This rigorous and costly procedure involves the auditing of 104 unique categories as part of a comprehensive screening process covering information security management and information security protocols for all cryptocurrency exchanges with annual revenue exceeding 10 billion KRW.
ProBit Exchange has continually garnered high marks in trust metrics across aggregators CoinGecko and CoinMarketCap through transparent order books, volume, and liquidity.
Transparent practices have long been the motto of the rapidly growing exchange en route to solidifying a massive global network spanning over 600 clientele, 800,000 monthly active users, 500 projects, and 900 trading pairs. Supporting the diverse offerings is a robust foundation of security and asset safety as the exchange remains one of the few to avoid hacks.
ProBit Exchange has catapulted to the top echelon of industry leaders in Korea and will soon join the ranks of ISIS verified competitors including Bithumb, Upbit, Coinone, and Korbit.
Transparent Framework for VASP and Legitimizing the Industry
Following the passing of the monumental national governance amendment called the Special Financial Information Law back on March 5, 2020, cryptocurrencies became officially recognized as a legitimate asset class. Another stipulation of the new regulation required virtual asset service providers (VASPS) to establish accounts with verified names from domestic banks and obtain ISMS certifications.
Certifications will require approval by the Financial Services Commission and the Korea Internet & Security Agency followed by reporting to the Financial Intelligence Unit, the main regulatory body.
The new regulatory framework was welcomed by many in the industry as it provided the regulatory foundation to improve transparency and legitimacy of the domestic cryptocurrency industry. With the strengthening and enhanced scrutinization of key screening and anti-fraud measures including AML and KYC, this only bodes well for enhanced investor and asset protection in an industry ripe with fraudulent players.
The Special Financial Information Law will officially go into effect starting March 17, 2021, and will also introduce the first implementation of crypto tax measures as well as guidelines covering operations between validated VASPS and commercial banks.
