The approach of Yoon to regulate crypto-currencies
Yoon has shown to journalists the various positive aspects of crypto-currencies. He explained, however, the problems his organization faces. It has also held to clarify the roles of the FSS and the FSC. According to Yoon, the FSS will work with the FSC when an inspection on the policies and financial institutions will be carried out. The FSC will therefore control the policies while the FSS will review and supervise the financial institutions.

Yoon also pointed out that the regulation is good. However, it would be more fair to review it in order to help new businesses to grow, he added.
