Coin trading has been slow to the start for the South Korean market, but Coinbit is looking to up the pace, offering users 0% commission on the first month of trading. But with errors happening on the first day, it's not a good start for them.
Today hasn't been such a good day for some coin exchanges. With one of the largest coin exchanges in operation in South Korea, UpBit, subject to a raid by legal authorities today, forcing an unexpected closure for its active users.
