China’s Central Bank to continue fight against cryptocurrencies in second half of 2021

The people’s Bank of China has come to decide on the ongoing crackdown on cryptocurrencies in the country in the second half of 2021. At yesterday’s conference, there was a consensus on” maintaining” the high pressure on digital currency trading in China, encouraging and enabling trading and exchange platforms to comply with legal requirements and adjust their activities accordingly.

In the second half of the year, China’s Central Bank is unlikely to make drastic and rapid policy changes to further stifle cryptocurrencies. In response, the conference said it was monitoring compliance with previously introduced rules.

Chinese journalist Colin Wu tweeted that the key points of the meeting hinted that there would be no new policy, but meant that the current policy would continue.

The meeting stressed that the suppression of cryptography in the second half of the year was not to strengthen it, but to protect it, which may mean that there is no new serious policy, but a continuation of the existing policy. https://t.co/9X2bgOCBym

In October, the bank aims to promote external debt registration and management reform, including the growth and modification of the internal bond issue management policies of foreign entities.
