The South Korean government will pass the “Digital Asset Basic Law” (DABA) in 2023 to make cryptocurrencies fully legal in the country. In addition, lawmakers have approved plans by the Bank of Korea to create a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC). Before the law is officially enacted, Korean authorities have agreed to cooperate with the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and the Financial Stability Board (FSB), as well as with US and European observers.

South Korea to integrate Bitcoin and other digital assets into its financial system by 2024

The regulatory framework for the digital asset ecosystem should be approved as early as 2023, and will enter into force as early as 2024. The exact list of reforms is still unknown, but the authorities have already stated that the initiative should include investor protection when dealing with Bitcoin and other crypto assets, and also “institutionalize” NFTs. The South Korean government wants to shape regulatory legislation based on the experience of other partners in order to avoid additional risks.

New President Yoon Suk-yeol, who officially took office on May 10 this year, is optimistic about the digital asset sector.

During his presidential campaign, Yeol expressed his willingness to legalize initial coin offerings (ICOs) and changes in the cryptocurrency taxation policy in the country. Previously, the threshold for taxation of annual profits from crypto transactions was $2,000, the president proposed raising this bar to $40,000.

Google Password Manager is pretty versatile as it allows you to sync all your saved passwords across mobile and desktop devices. Until now, the Chrome desktop browser used PINs and passwords to authenticate users before exposing stored data.

Now, if your computer (Windows and macOS) has an external or built-in biometric authentication system, such as a fingerprint scanner or a face scanner, you can use it to access data stored in the Chrome password manager.
