In a recent tweet, the South Korean crypto exchange Bithumb announced that it has recently received the ISMS – Information Security Management System – certification. This procedure is performed by a local regulator KISA – Korea Internet & Security Agency.

What is ISMS?

This is the most crucial certification system regarding information security management in South Korea. The procedure consists of 12 items on 5 stages, as well as 92 items from 13 areas which are connected to data security.

The obligation to receive this certification was introduced last year by authorities of South Korea regarding crypto exchanging platforms whose income exceeds $8.99 mln (around 10 bln KRW) and that are visited by over 1 mln users on a daily basis. The time given for the receiving of ISMS is three months. Now, Bithumb has taken this milestone.

Bithumb to obtain international security certifications

Apart from the ISMS certification, Bithumb is seeking to obtain other security certificates, this time of a global standard. Presently, Bithumb is working to receive ISO27001. This an ISMS standard used internationally, as well as BS10012 – that is a global certification for personal ISMS.

The exchange intends to set up the most reliable system of security for crypto traders and investors in order to land more clients to its platform. Apparently, the ultimate goal is to become the leader of the crypto trading market – the title, which is currently, as many in the cryptocurrency sphere suggest, is held by Binance.

Not the first exchange to get ISMS

In November 2018, the ISMS certification was granted to the Upbit crypto exchange. It was the first one of the four largest South Korean exchanges to receive ISMS. Now Bithumb has followed it.

The other two biggest local crypto exchanges, Coinone and Korbit, are also waiting to be certified.  

Bithumb goes for China

Earlier, U.Today reported that Bithumb had set up an account on a large Chinese social network Weibo, a local version of Twitter. Thus, Bithumb intends to attract investors from the Chinese crypto community.

There is two news today– both bad and good. The bad one is that Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple are still going down without any sign of a reversal. The good one is that they have slowed down their downside tendencies. However, no one can say for how long.

Psychologically, the crypto industry is still bearish. There is no a single event to help bulls to break this negative tendency. Bears continue to dig themselves deeper into the ground, establishing new lows almost every day.

As for crypto news, there are some interesting events to mention. The South Korean Bithumb exchange has banned traders from 11 Non-Cooperative Countries and Territories including Iraq, Iran, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Tunisia, Trinidad and Tobago, Vanuatu, Yemen and others. The other interesting event for the cryptocurrency community is that six companies in Japan have opened crypto exchanges on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

The fundamental outlook, however, is still negative. Hodlers and buyers are still waiting for some good news to come.

cardano
The currency pair added more than eight percent in the past 24 hours, which is surprising as the other coins declined mostly. However, ADA/USD is still unable to make a complete reverse.

Cardano has reached $0.1719 support area before starting a luminous bullish correction to $0.2002 resistance area. ADA/USD is currently close to this resistance.
