  • Technology companies such as mainnet are expected to be second-handed in terms of capital and regulations
  • Projects in the DeFi field are expected to continue to grow.

3. Exchange supremacy is moving from East Asia to North America

  • For more details, please refer to the University of Cambridge report.

5. In Korea, the market will still be driven by individual investors.

  • In 2021, Korean institutions are expected to enter the cryptocurrency investment market.
  • Not due to the low interest of cryptocurrency investment, but because of regulations.
  • In contrast to the global trend in which cryptocurrency investment is shifting toward institutions, South Korea is still a market centered on individual investors.

6. Individual investors in Korea remain strong

  • Korea market accounts for more than 10% of global cryptocurrency investment
  • The amount of private investment in Korea is twice that of China and 5 times that of Southeast Asia.

7. Acceleration of cryptocurrency financialization around DeFi and CeFi

  • Various cryptocurrency derivatives will release.
  • Investment will expand to new digital assets beyond cryptocurrency
  • Spotlighting the STO again.

8. Galapagos Syndrome in the Korean crypto market

  • Korea is lagging behind China and the United States in terms of technology despite the government’s policy of developing blockchain technology, and business innovation is also on the decline.
  • While private investment is active, cryptocurrency-related companies are losing competitiveness, and several projects led by traditional large platforms will monopolize the market.
  • Exchanges must lead the cryptocurrency market, but it is difficult because of regulations.
  • In Korea, the adoption of individual investors is slow in terms of the use of decentralized services, DeFi, and MetaMask.
  • Ironically, the reason for falling behind in global trends is the growth of the Korean cryptocurrency exchange ‘KRW Market’.
  • In conclusion, Korea’s cryptocurrency market will deteriorate further and go against the global trend.
