Yeon stated that a public blockchain could not survive without miners, and they are the ones who need to get a reward for what they are doing. That is why cryptos are so essential – miners receive as rewards for their performance when creating a block.

The Change of Course

Even though this idea was not supported the presidential Blue House, whose representatives said the decision on the ban was not finalized, it still affected the prices on the crypto market.

Nevertheless, Yeon was the one who set the record straight. So he his new comments concerning blockchain came just a few days after that.
