Red Pulse (RPX) has recently announced they will be listed on the Korean exchange CoinRail, on Thursday, January 25, 2018. The Korean exchange has stated RPX will only be paired with BTC for the time being, as depositing the Korean Won is limited at the moment.
CoinRail will be the first Korean exchange to trade RPX, which comes amidst a perceived backlash in the broader market from potential regulations. In response to the government officials warnings released in mid-January, CoinRail temporarily halted the listing of new coins until the Korean government provided a resolution.
On January 22, 2018, Korean officials clarified their intent and stated trading will not be banned, but rather the name on the bank accounts of the traders must match their account name on the cryptocurrency exchanges.
The announcement preceded a meeting of global leaders at the World Economic Forum, which will be hosted in Davos, Switzerland on January 23 – 26, 2018. The World Economic Forum was established in 1971 as a not-for-profit foundation to demonstrate entrepreneurship, while upholding the highest standards of governance. Speakers and guests of the event represent both the public and private sectors, international organizations, and academic institutions.
