Samsung now sees an opportunity here and is closely monitoring Hong Kong’s rule book in case they decide to allow direct investments in crypto coins. Sam Park, Hong Kong chief executive for Samsung Asset Management told Bloomberg: “It really depends on how policy is going to be developed”. He further added that the local administration was clearly keen on developing a crypto hub.

Hong Kong’s Pan to Attract Crypto Businesses

As said, Hong Kong regulators are already laying out plans to attract more crypto businesses into the market. Initially, they plan to legalize retail trading and other digital assets ETF which can invest only in the futures traded on the CME platform.

However, Hong Kong regulators are watchful of all the developments in the broader crypto markets and have shown the need for a regulatory environment that offers compliance, transparency, and investor protection.
