The great wall of FUD

On September 24th, the People’s Bank of China (PBoC) released a memo announcing a ban on all crypto transactions that triggered an 8% drop in the price of Bitcoin (BTC) along with a wider retreat in the crypto market.

The PBOC’s updated measures – originally released on September 3 before being picked up by Western media outlets last week – set out that financial institutions and payment companies are banned from providing services related to crypto transactions.

While Chinese regulators’ FUD has influenced the crypto markets in the past, it also served as a catalyst for soaring prices or bull runs in the months following the announcements.

In September 2017, China’s government banned crypto exchanges from offering services to users in the country, and also banned citizens from participating in initial coin offerings. After the double ban, the BTC price rose from the $ 4,000 mark to an all-time high of around $ 20,000 at the time.
