Chinese Analyst: ”Bitcoin Nuclear Bomb In New Currency War Between China and USA”

Xiao Lei, a Chinese financial analyst, has published an article that seeks to argue that the spheres of bitcoin and cryptocurrency are increasingly becoming a battleground in “a new currency” war between China and the United States. Despite some bitcoin users describing Lei’s views as conspiratorial, the article has garnered significant attention after becoming recommended by Baidu Baijia – an online media channel owned by major Chinese company Baidu.

Mr. Lei is Concerned About the Future for Chinese Bitcoin Traders

Chinese Analyst: ”Bitcoin Nuclear Bomb In New Currency War Between China and USA”In an article recommended by Baidu Baijia, Xiao Lei states “as an ordinary investor, I am concerned about whether bitcoin investment can make money. But if I stand in the perspective of a country, I am concerned whether this thing can be used by me or not and whether there are some factors that are unfavorable to me in the future.”

Mr. Lei argues that the contemporary era comprises an epoch in which “the strategic significance of [traditional commodities such as] oil and grain… may not be so important [now, as] the game between countries has entered [the] virtual” domain. Xiao Lei posits that control over seigniorage (profit made by a government by issuing currency, especially the difference between the face value of coins and their production costs) has become the principal means through which economic power is assured in the contemporary context.

Mr. Lei Argues That “The Battle of Seigniorage” Has Manifested At “The Level of Virtual Currency”

Chinese Analyst Describes Bitcoin as Potential "Nuclear Bomb' In "New Currency War" Between China and USAThe analyst states that bitcoin “is not welcome by the legal currency market, unless there is sufficient means and ability to control… If any country can manage bitcoin freely, bitcoin will become the nuclear weapon of a new currency war. This has been discovered by Japan and the United States.”

Mr. Lei states that “the bitcoin core development team” has sought to “curb China’s growing influence in the bitcoin market”, arguing that such has resulted in a power struggle between western-based bitcoin developers and Chinese-based miners for influence over the network.

Xiao Lei asserts that “since 2013, Bitcoin has seen tremendous growth in China with 95% of the trading volume and more than 50% of the computing power.” Mr. Lei argues that the growing Chinese presence in the bitcoin ecosystem has correlated with a reduction in the influence bitcoin’s core developers — of which he emphasizes “there are very few Chinese.” Mr. Lei even goes as far as stating that “cultural and strategic intentions determine that there is a natural and irreconcilable contradiction between the core developer and the Chinese government.” Mr. Lei alleges that “in order to counterbalance the rise of the Chinese market…Bitcoin is… constantly using technological improvements to weaken China’s influence.”

“If the Current Trending Continues, One Day You Will Find That Holders of Bitcoin and Those Who Do Not Own Bitcoin May Be Two Totally Different Classes”

Chinese Analyst Describes Bitcoin as Potential "Nuclear Bomb' In "New Currency War" Between China and USAMr. Lei states that “on the night… [that] the two major exchanges in China… stopped trading, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange [(CME)], the world’s largest futures exchange, announced” its intention to launch bitcoin futures during Q4.

Mr. Lei points out the majority of Chinese bitcoin trading now occurs on over the counter (OTC) markets. Mr. Lei asserts that “if CME successfully launches bitcoin futures in the fourth quarter, …over-the-counter transactions in China or exchanges in Japan and South Korea may not have much pricing power… Once CME’s bitcoin futures market goes public, it will become the world bitcoin [market] maker.”

It should be noted that members of the cryptocurrency community have dismissed Mr. Lei’s assessments as conspiratorial and lacking in evidence – with many pointing to Mr. Lei’s frequent insinuation pertaining to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), including implying that the CIA may in some way have colluded with bitcoin’s creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, as unsubstantiated claims that serve to undermine Mr. Lei’s credibility.

Xiao Lei asserts that “since 2013, Bitcoin has seen tremendous growth in China with 95% of the trading volume and more than 50% of the computing power.”
He seems to forget that this volume has been falsified and dropped significantly after the government's audit of the exchanges.

Mr. Lei alleges that “in order to counterbalance the rise of the Chinese market…Bitcoin is… constantly using technological improvements to weaken China’s influence.”
Stop looking for scapegoats Mr. Lei! Your government has screwed you and it has nothing to do with the current state of Bitcoin. They want to be in control, that's it, even if it means that you will end up with Chinese citizens being that "different class of people who don't hold cryptocurrency"
