Crytpo Becomes Illegal in China
Information is not investment advice
It’s unbelievable but China’s government prohibited all transactions with cryptocurrencies (yes, even Bitcoin) and promised to stop illegal crypto mining. While the rest of the world is taking steps to include crypto into the economy, China denies it.
What does China mean for crypto?
China is home to a huge part of the world’s crypto miners. As we know, mining requires a lot of energy resources and it prevents China from curbing greenhouse-gas emissions. Bloomberg says 46% of the global hash rate (computing power used in mining) occurred in China in April.
What will be the circumstances?
It is a negative factor for the whole crypto market in the short term. Today, BTC/USD has dropped by 3168 points in one day. The downtrend is likely to stay with us for longer. So good that FBS traders can open both buy and sell trades.

Bitcoin has dropped to the support level of $41,000, which lies at the 50-day moving average and the 50% Fibonacci level. It makes this level a strong barrier, which the cryptocurrency will struggle to break on the first try. If it manages to cross, BTC/USD will plunge to the 61.8% Fibo level of $38,000. Resistance levels are $44,000 and $45,500 (the 200-day moving average).

Hold onto your hats, folks! The Japanese yen took a nosedive after the Bank of Japan (BOJ) left its ultra-loose policy settings unchanged, including its closely watched yield curve control (YCC) policy. But wait, there's more! The BOJ also removed its forward guidance, which had previously pledged to keep interest rates at current or lower levels. So, what's the scoop? Market expectations had been subdued going into the meeting, but some were still hoping for tweaks to the forward guidance to prepare for an eventual exit from the bank's massive stimulus
