- Bitcoin price drops as China continues its crypto ban campaign
- MicroStrategy bought an additional 13,005 BTC
Bitcoin price plunges drastically as China continues its campaign against cryptocurrencies. This movement of China has been made to control the financial risk in the country.
Furthermore, the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) has reached out to some payment firms to strengthen their regulations against crypto trading. The China Construction Bank and Alipay are some of the major payment firms that the PBOC has invited.
This initiative made by the PBOC aims to stop criminals from abusing cryptocurrencies in their transactions.
PBOC explained further:
Speculative trading in virtual currencies roils economic and financial order, spawns the risks of criminal activities such as illegal asset transfers and money laundering, and endangers people’s wealth.

Today, Bitcoin trades at a decent price of over $32k with a solid market cap of almost $610 billion.
In other news, China remains firm on its decision to crack down BTC mining farms in the country. For this reason, the mining industries in the southwest province of Sichuan were ordered to shut down.
