Gopax to come back on line today.

Gopax to come back on line today. 

It appears Jeonbuk Bank will partner with them and allow real name deposits.  I am not sure if you can still use your regular bank account or if you have go through their bank. 

The site says it will be back after 2 pm for KRW deposits.  I still use FTX overseas, but a Korean option may be convenient again. 
745sticky, Augustiner, Bakeacake, D.L.Orean, Lazio, Mithras, Renma, Rye are losers who are blocked.  Good riddance to them. They will still be in Korea 10 years from now unless they are retired.  Either way, they will be poor since all they know how to do is troll rather than work for something more

Where?  Gopax?  I think that was always foreign friendly.  I used it before until last fall  when they were no longer allowed to use KRW bank accounts.  I guess I will find out for sure later.  Guess I will have to swear and call them racist poop heads if they are ignorant like the other sites (Korbit and the like).  Maybe call them and yell at them too.  Hope they choose not to be racist puke bags.  They were always good before.

It's not about them being racist, it was new laws and guidelines coming from above that they had to comply with. Why do you always jump to the same conclusions?

No, the other sites blocked foreigners before while GOPAX allowed.  There was some extra paperwork involved but they still could have kept us instead of copping out and kicking us to the curb.  But it is true that both the government and the companies together behaved pretty ignorantly.  Then GOPAX had to switch to this BTC market crap last September.

Turns out you're right. They decided to become racist little bigots.  Only pure blooded Koreans can invest.  They just confirmed their racism to me this evening.

Lol @Trump supporter deciding that swearing at people and calling them racist pieces of sh*t will get people to change what they're doing and also for a country putting up laws that restrict immigrants.

I would not be opposed to you calling up some person on a customer service line and you verbally harassing them, simply because from what I understand, there are now explicit laws against that sort of thing and you would be in for a treat.

Or, you know, you could go on the path towards legal citizenship.

You should check out that TikTok on how much you can make working at the Waffle House. They've got almost 2,000 locations, and the pandemic has been declared over in the US, unlike China.

Imagine if America decided that Korean Americans were lesser human beings.  IE Not pure blooded and excluded you as a legal resident from participating in many economic activities that everyone else was allowed to participate in.  Would you be an apologist then and defend that too? 

Defending Korean racism is pretty inexcusable.  It doesn't matter how long you live here, you are never accepted or treated equally on par.  Legal residents in Canada and the US have the same rights as everyone else yet they don't here.  Discrimination is legal and allowed. 

What does liking Trump have to do with anything?  I am not here illegally.

It's called being in another country on a temporary work visa, which is what E2s are.

Yeah, you have a lot less rights. That's how it is.

Also, in this demand for equal rights, are you demanding equal responsibility? Because there's a certain obligation that takes 2 years and 2 months out of your life that you seem to be overlooking in this demand to be treated equally. But of course, you haven't thought about that.

You're thinking yelling and swearing at people and calling them racists will change their minds. Dems do that to Trump supporters, it doesn't change their mind.

Also, you're confusing residency with citizenship. You want to be treated like a citizen, become one. Right now you are treated like a resident.

Still it was nice telling off those little Hitlers.
Congrats on your victory against the 4th Reich- GoPax.

Anyways, it's highly doubtful you actually did anything considering you are all talk and no action on here.

However if you did and the call was recorded, they are fully within their rights to have you charged with harassment and abuse and I hope they do so. Being upset at government policy does not give you  the right to verbally assault and abuse some customer service employee.

Wrong, as usual.  Legal residents of the US are not allowed to vote in federal or state elections.  Only US citizens have that right.

I agree that defending racism (of any kind) is inexcusable.

Who said anything about voting?  You only vote if you are a citizen.  But, you are not discriminated against in financial or other government services.   Where in the hell do you people pull this stuff out of?

Americans and Canadians extend their constitutional rights to everyone not just citizens.  Get a brain.  Legal residents can do everything except vote in those countries.  But maybe Korea would be further along if there weren't so many loser apologists making excuses for it.

There are jobs in Canada that require a certain level of security clearance that permanent residents don't -- can't -- qualify for.
Permanent residents also can't run for any kind of political office in Canada.

Both of those are pretty reasonable restrictions imho, and other than that they pretty much have the same rights as regular citizens.

Korean legal residents in Canada and the US can do the same things as citizens when it comes to banking, financial services, and most other things.  You can't talk your apologist legal ass out of it.  I am here legally and don't have the same access to these services.  It is racist and discriminatory.  I have the right to call out racism anywhere I see it.  Some waygooks are weak cucks who don't stick up for themselves or push back.  Whether it gets results or not, I make my feelings known.  Some foreigners bitch to me about things, but never actually speak up for themselves when in the situation.  It's part of the reason why life for us is so hard here.  There are too many pussies.
