Anti-Money Laundering Protections Improve with Stronger Laws for Huobi Korea

    The sixth largest crypto exchange in the world, Huobi Korea, has decided to change the protections that they formerly had in place for anti-money laundering (AML). The firm announced its decision to alter these policies on February 21st this week.

    In the statement, the one-year-old exchange had decided to go over the processes for deposits and withdrawals, along with their oversight of fiat-to-crypto. With the updates, the company plans to monitor any potentially suspicious transactions, and will continually make updates to the algorithms that filter transactions for possible instances of fraud.

    Along with this progress in AML protections, Huobi Korea has also launched a hotline between exchanges that will help prevent many types of fraud, including identity theft and voice phishing.

    The press release shows that the purpose of these measures was to ensure that the company falls in line with the regulations and guidelines set forth by the Korean Financial Services Commission (FSC).

    Presently, Huobi Global ranks as the sixth largest crypto exchange, based on the current adjusted volume. The recent 24 hours’ worth of trading passes $496 million.

    Much of the progress that the company has been able to make has been due to the approval that the FSC gave last year for banks to work with crypto exchanges, which never had happened before then. This milestone propelled the cryptocurrency climate forward in South Korea rapidly.

    Last month, the government decided to publish a report that showed what they had discovered in terms of security amongst local cryptocurrency exchanges. Seven major exchanges managed to pass, while the remaining 14 platforms failed the audit.
