The News Asia has upload an article that made crypto Twitter dance with joy. Accordingly, South Korea's financial regulatory agencies have approved cryptocurrency transactions.
This comes a day after the Indian Supreme Court rejected the RBI cryptocurrency ban.
Republic of Korea legalized completely Crypto transactions
The revised text that allows cryptocurrencies to transact legally was passed earlier in a National Assembly session. From now on, its citizens are allowed to legally trade and hold digital currencies.

“BREAKING: Korean legal cryptocurrency
Too terrible … Halving will make the epic of Bitcoin "
However, Joseph Young called this move a big step, but not important.
"Cryptocurrency regulation adopted today in South Korea legalized this emerging industry locally. Accordingly, AML policies are strengthened and require the exchange to register with the local financial authorities to continue operations. It is an important thing, but not as big as rumors. "
This crypto legislation was supposed to be approved last month, but was stalled due to the coronavirus outbreak.
It is now fully passed with the National Assembly. It was expected to be approved for many months.

4h closed damn strong, but we quite not out of the woods yet. Watching how we react around yellow and green levels. Wick into there and a quick selloff and elabll be short targeting low 8k's. Smash above green and I think we go for new highs.
Flat for now. Let's see. pic.twitter.com/UQ1mrAuljt

"The 4-hour chart plays strong, but Bitcoin is not out of danger yet. Keep track of how prices react around the yellow and green levels. Wick on it and sell off quickly. I will aim to short the lows of the $ 8K zone. Break on the green and I think we will have new heights. Currently the price is flat. Wait and see. "
