South Korea's National Tax Bureau published a report showing that the declared cryptocurrency assets of Korean companies and individuals reached a staggering $98.3 billion.

92% of these assets are held by 73 companies, including stock exchanges.

Despite this significant level of assets, South Korean authorities have not yet taxed virtual asset gains, with taxation postponed until January 2025.

Virtual assets accounted for more than two-thirds of the value held in registered offshore accounts in South Korea this year. This comes after the National Tax Service (NTS) added these assets to the list of assets subject to mandatory registration.

Taxpayers or companies with foreign financial accounts in South Korea are required to file a report if the total balance of the accounts exceeds 500 million won on the last day of any month of the previous year.
