Located in East Asia, South Korea is a country known officially as the Republic of Korea. The country is home to approximately 51 million people and uses the South Korean won as its currency. The capital of South Korea, Seoul, is geographically seated in the nation’s upper region.

South Korea borders North Korea, also known as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
The South Korean crypto scene includes strict regulations on certain fronts, although the country is known to host significant crypto trading activity.
