On June 21, the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) issued a document stating that it had appointments with major state-owned banks and mobile payment provider Alipay for providing cryptocurrency transaction services. Banks and payment institutions are required to strictly implement the Notice on Preventing Bitcoin Risks” and Announcement on Preventing Initial Coin Offering (ICO) Risks, and must not provide account opening and registration for related activities, including trading, clearing, and settlement. The PBOC claimed that cryptocurrency trading activities disrupt the markets, adding to risks of illegal cross-border transfer of assets and money laundering.

China had cracked down on cryptocurrency in 2017, when the government banned all domestic exchanges, shutting down 90 percent of the speculative market in global bitcoin transactions. In 2019, China blocked access to cryptocurrency exchanges and ICO websites and prohibited related translations via foreign exchange limitations. The current Chinese government ban restricts transactions, ICOs, financial institution services, and mining, yet does not extend to individuals’ ownership of cryptocurrencies.

    China tries very hard to limit the ability of its citizens to trade in cryptocurrency, but forgets that it cannot do so completely. For example, you can connect with an API key to a trading terminal or robot and no one will trace your location. Such a possibility is described in a review of the trading robot and I know that many cryptocurrency traders, in countries where cryptocurrency is banned, actively use this loophole.

  5. Don’t spread yourself thin by trying to follow and trade too many markets. Most traders have their hands full keeping abreast of a few markets. Remember that futures trading is hard work and requires a substantial investment of time and energy. Studying charts, reading market commentary, staying on top of the news—it can be a lot for even the most seasoned trader.

  6. Wow, you know, the topic of trading is very interesting to me. When I first started studying it, I also couldn’t find the best platform where I could read useful articles about trading. But my sister advised me to read this article about what metaverse is. Here I learned a lot of interesting and useful things. Now I am very advanced in this subject and have good money. Good luck!
