Leading South Korean digital asset exchange Bithumb stated on Thursday that it has integrated its platform with mobile applications from three significant domestic financial institutions: Samsung Securities, NH Nonghyup, and KB Kookmin Bank.
Through Samsung's mPOP, NH Smart Banking and NH Allone Bank, and KB StarBanking mobile applications, Bithumb customers may now check current crypto prices and the status of their investments in digital assets, such as earning rates.
"As digital assets move closer to traditional finance, we are thinking about ways for customers to manage their portfolios at ease.”
In compliance with South Korea's crypto rules, the cryptocurrency exchange teamed with NH Nonghyup Bank last year, and the bank now offers real-name withdrawal and deposit accounts to Bithumb consumers.
Along with Upbit, Coinone, Korbit, and Gopax, Bithumb is one of South Korea's top five cryptocurrency exchanges. 17.1% of the nation's overall cryptocurrency trade volume was driven by it in 2018.
