Today’s Crypto News on Asia- Jun 15

Korea seeking direct supervision over crypto; Binance doesn’t want to be #1; India traders getting away from crypto ban

What Crypto insiders are reading on Asia.

Happy Friday! The news from the SEC on ETH not being a security was a great way to end the week. This statement has large implications for the crypto community, and should set a precedence for many of the Asian countries regulators. I trust that over a long time, regulators from all over the world will come to a consensus (perhaps on a blockchain) on how cryptocurrency should be regulated. That is, except China. More to come on that this weekend.
