In its latest statement, the People’s Bank of China announced that all transactions related to cryptocurrencies are illegal and should be banned.
A new phase has been entered in the animosity between cryptocurrencies and the Chinese state. The People’s Bank of China has declared all transactions involving cryptocurrencies illegal. In addition, necessary steps have been taken to ban crypto currency transactions.
The People’s Bank of China has declared war on cryptocurrencies
In a statement made by Yin Youping, Deputy Director of the Financial Consumer Rights Protection Bureau in August, it was announced that all cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin, do not have real value due to the fact that they are not a legal tender, and at this point, the high pressure situation of the Central Bank of China on the crypto money market will continue.
At this point, China’s pressure on the cryptocurrency market continued, and finally, cryptocurrency trading in the country was declared illegal by the Central Bank. Of course, naturally, cryptocurrencies were also negatively affected by this development.
After the news of the ban, the crypto money market started to decline, assets, especially Bitcoin and Ethereum, lost value. At the time of writing this news, Bitcoin fell from $ 45 thousand to $ 42 thousand 440, and Ethereum fell from $ 3 thousand 100 to $ 2 thousand 860. Likewise, other crypto assets continue to decline.
In addition, it should be noted that the country previously banned cryptocurrency mining. As it will be remembered, cryptocurrency mines operating in many provinces of China were closed in the past months. Energy companies were even ordered to stop supplying electricity to miners in their area.
