South Korea’s Bitcoin kimchi premium fell to around 3.39% on Wednesday after rising to 6.28% on Tuesday, its highest level since December, according to CryptoQuant.
According to reports, the sharp rise in kimchi premium may be related to “Kakao Bank is considering cooperation with a digital currency exchange”, which is rumored to be Upbit. Note: “Kimchi premium” refers to the large price gap between the token on the Korean exchange and the global average.
