China to Strengthen Crypto Crackdown

On September 24, a Chinese journalist, Colin Wu, provided the public with more info regarding the Chinese crypto mining ongoing crackdown. According to Wu's translation, the document lists virtual currency mining as an eliminated industry and prohibits any investment activity in this scope. The paper also emphasizes that crypto mining harms the environment due to high energy consumption and carbon emissions.

Crypto enthusiasts also drew attention to the People's Bank of China's notice in WeChat, claiming virtual currencies exchange is illegal. The message triggered an 8% Bitcoin price drop.

However, some called the news FUD, saying the notice was announced on September 15 but posted and widespread only on September 24, 2021.
