South Koreans are literally waking up with Bitcoin on their minds. Theyre googling it on the subway and reading about it on their way to work.


South Korea Will Be Huge Adoption Catalyst

This country of 50 million people is a high-tech hub thats big on consumer electronics, esports, and global innovation. So its really no surprise that cryptocurrency is about to explode in South Korea.

South Koreans have consistently had a big appetite for Bitcoin, at times even paying above market price for it known as the Kimchi Premium.

According to a report by intelligence firm Cindicator, recent regulation, the burgeoning cryptocurrency exchange scene, and the countrys history and culture are all key factors when it comes to BTC acceptance.

In fact, South Koreans already make up some 30% of total cryptocurrency trading globally. On top of that, around 30% of all salaried workers own crypto assets of some kind and trade with varying degrees of frequency.

The government also allocated 1 trillion won (USD 880 million) to spend on blockchain development in 2019, creating a ripe climate for Bitcoin adoption.

Moreover, Bitcoinist reported yesterday that South Koreas largest bank by assets KB Kookmin took an about turn decision on cryptocurrency and will be developing custody solutions.


Bitcoin Addiction Is Hitting the Region

With all these conditions creating the perfect storm for BTC, South Korea will be key in the new bull market. The first thing its people are thinking about when they open their eyes isnt their partner, kids, or job; its Bitcoin.
