Cheong Wa Dae "abolished the virtual currency exchange, not the policy of the Korean government"
Cheong Wa Dae said Minister of Justice Park Sang Ki's remarks that the virtual currency exchange would be closed without government approval.
A senior official of the presidential office said in a phone call to YTN that Minister Park's remarks were incomplete.
The Justice Department has approached from the speculative elimination aspect, but the Financial Services Commission said the Ministry of Science, Technology and Communications are interested in promoting the core technology of virtual currency.
He added that e-money policies would be decided after the government considered market conditions. This is good news for the money market after the shock this morning .... We will continue to update the information soon.
