SEUM represented a group of private investors in connection with an investment in a structured vehicle based in Singapore that will invest in digital tokens, digital coins and cryptocurrencies. With the current growing interest in cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, investors increasingly appear to be seeking opportunities in this evolving area.
SEUM’s managing partner, Hoseok Jung, recently participated as a “special presenter” at the 2017 Smart Cloud Show, held by the Ministry of Science and ICT and the Seoul Metropolitan Government, giving a presentation titled “National Competitiveness and Blockchain” during the “Advent of Virtual Money and Blockchain” session.
CCTV-2, a Chinese broadcasting station that broadcasts programs related to the economy and life services, interviewed Hoseok Jung, SEUM’s managing partner and head of the firm’s Blockchain Team, regarding various matters such as the current state of Korean’s blockchain industry, the future outlook of this exciting area of technology, and the industry’s need for a coherent legal regime.
