About one million South Koreans, many of them small-time investors, are estimated to own bitcoin.

SEOUL - Bitcoin fell more than 11 percent after South Korea said on Thursday it would ban anonymous trading of virtual currencies and crack down on money laundering activities using them.

The announcement came as the hyper-wired South emerged as a hotbed for cryptocurrency trading, accounting for some 20 percent of global bitcoin transactions -- about 10 times the country's share of the world economy.

The policy package also includes stepping up crackdowns on money laundering activities and financial fraud -- including price manipulation -- using digital currency trades. resolutely respond to such crimes by slapping maximum sentences possible on offenders," it said, vowing to "leave all policy options open, including closure of a cryptocurrency exchange when deemed necessary." The announcement came two weeks after Seoul banned its financial firms from dealing in virtual currencies, most notably bitcoin, as their prices soared, sparking concerns of a bubble largely fueled by retail speculators.

The digital unit hit a record around $19,500 earlier this month, meaning it had increased more than 25-fold from its 2017 low in mid-January.
