AMCHAM Blockchain Committee Meeting

Thursday, August 22, 2024

7:30 AM - 9:00 AM


Grand Hyatt Seoul, Sansoo (LL)

The crypto market started with a bullish run this year after the US Securities and Exchange Commission approved bitcoin ETF products. However, this upward trend did not last very long, as global crypto markets currently face a significant decline in trading volume and price. Market forecasts are further fogged by a new Korean crypto investors protection act coming into effect on July 19. Please join Blockchain Committee Co-Chairs Patrick Yoon of Crypto.com and Sirgoo Lee of Dunamu to discuss the future and issues facing the Korean crypto market.
