According to Professor Kim Jung Min, South Korean president Moon has been aiding the North via bitcoin since the tougher UN sanctions have kicked in since 2017. He also claims that Moon’s right-hand man Im Jong-Seok is also very likely involved with financing North Korea via bitcoin given his communist past records.
