China’s Central Bank: All Crypto Transactions Are Now Illegal

A recent announcement from The People’s Bank of China states that cryptocurrency transactions are now illegal. China has not banned ownership yet, but all the other activities that involve cryptocurrencies are now illegal. This has impacted the market immediately, where major cryptocurrencies have had slight dips in the price over the last hours.

The People’s Bank of China has also stated that it is going to carefully monitor all the risks that cryptocurrencies impose on the citizens as well as on the Chinese economy. If a person is caught using cryptocurrencies for any sort of activity can be heavily punished.

As expected, many people have reacted. Francine Lacqua of Bloomberg implied that PBOC’s decision can increase capital outflows.

Similar was said by Gabor Gurbacs, the director of CanEck. He suggested that money is going to relocate more in the west due to this decision from PBOC.

Even cryptocurrency mining is going to be completely be removed in the coming months. Major Chinese provinces have already banned Bitcoin mining. Now the PBOC is looking at how to get rid of the mining industry as a whole.

China has also banned cryptocurrency exchanges and initial coin offerings (ICO) in 2017. It was clear that China’s stance on cryptocurrencies was never too promising.

While many might try to ignore China’s actions in terms of cryptocurrencies, such decisions can clearly have a negative outcome for the cryptocurrency market. The price of BTC has dropped by around 10% in just the last 4 hours. The recent decrease in the price of BTC this week could also be attributed to the Evergrande crisis, which has caused instability in the financial markets.
