With the PBOC announcement, if you don't think it will go down further you are delusional.

How serious is it? Chinese exchanges couldn't withdraw bitcoin right?

Guy's at PBOC wanna earn some money for themselves, worked out every time  Grin

Can you make an account at either Huobi or OKcoin without giving KYC information provided you don't withdraw fiat? If you can and either exchange suddenly demands KYC information from everyone there will be some customers who would rather lose their Bitcoins than provide KYC.

The PBOC could demand those exchanges hand all those unclaimed Bitcoins to it, then do US style auctions.

Basically you can buy BTC/LTC but you can't withdraw any of it. You can only withdraw fiat. This should create even more sell pressure.

I'm actually not enjoying this price drop. It's beginning to hurt my eyes seeing these numbers.

Today started so well and looked so bullish. It just shows btc hasn't grown up fully and can be battered at any moment. This will not help ETF

Actually it absolutely WILL help the ETF.  I believe this is being done in support of the ETF being approved.  


They've had years to implement this. So what other reason would there be to rush KYC/AML implementation and have it done exactly 4 weeks from today?

I seconded it on the other thread.

Still the effect of real news is not bigger than the January fall to $800 and lower that happened for no concrete reason, at least until now

I guess the chinese are getting less power in the price, what their next move will be?

Next step would obv be to close a small exchange. Then, after several smaller ones, proceed with the bigger ones.

Then go after the miners. Then go after every retailer that accepts BTC.

there are no retailers in china. the only thing in china is mining and exchanges. losing the mining is alarming, i dunno how things would pan out if they did or even whether it's possible. exchanges, let's get it over with.

It doesn't look that bad. I am just sad I've missed it and that I can't afford to buy a couple of BTC now.
It may get back to 1024$ before Monday ends....

The only possible ways to do that is to prevent the farms to communicate on internet (impossible), or to physically delete the farms, ie put people in jail and/or burn the miners (not likely but possible for big farms because of the electric bill)

BTC was rising too fast with no proper reasoning, this is the proper setback.
We need to implement new technologies and applications to the network before we can have a steady rise... lately, theses rises were just due to the bullish and delusional people that believe in the impossible.
For BTC expansion and major acceptance we need a stronger and bolder foundation, for now we are still looking if BTC should implement or not segwit, LN and other promising technologies if we are not implementing new solutions to the actual BTC problems the price shouldn't be rising like the last few weeks.
This dump was just a wake-up call(IMO), the price will surely increase in the future but we need to improve the technology first...

there are lots of people making money because of the existence of mining farms in China. from the owners of the farm and their employees to small electric companies who owe their survival to mining farms and their special contracts, and the hardware companies manufacturing mining equipment.

don't think for a second government can even touch such a huge financial operation with so many big people involved.

isn't coins being trapped in China good?  less liquidity?  we'll be trading with less of a pool of Bitcoins.

anyhow...

is crypto done??  Huh

They are trapped due to AML requirements, so the only way they can 'escape' is to convert themselves to fiat and leave via the front door in full view of the authorities.
Someone will buy them, being prepared to wait a month to withdraw them, but they will obviously want a heavy discount for their patience.

There is probably a flood of Bitcoin withdrawals from BTCC as it hasn't yet temporarily stopped them. BTCC's customers are probably withdrawing, then dumping on a safe exchange. After they finish dumping the price will probably go back up.
So this is the reason for the fast and furious price tumble and it is continuing to do so.
I saw it at $970 now it is $958.
This is a troubling situation for the ones who have vested alot in to it over the last couple of days.

Nonsense as always. Have you been watching the network security lately? Hashrate 6 months ago was almost 1/2 of what it is now.

miningfarms will most likely not be shut down, but instead they could very well be forced to mine the official chinese cryptocurrency that the chinese gov has already announced. that would be a much more possible scenario imo.

official cryptocurrency will NEVER happen because it is an idiotic concept to begin with.
why would any government want to issue a currency that is limited in size (number of units)?
if it is not limited in size, then why bother in the first place? they can "digitally" print as many yuans as they want.
