Quote
FXBTC cited “unprecedented pressure” from the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) as well as restrictions on its banking services that have resulted from the central bank’s policies as deciding factors.

FXBTC said that long-term financial losses stemming from what it termed a “blockade” by the PBOC resulted in the management team deciding to end the service.

According to a translated statement from CryptoCoinsNews, the management team was unable to envision a successful future due to growing negative pressure from the PBOC.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Hybrid server-assisted clients like Electrum get a lot of their network information from centralized servers, but they also check the server's results using blockchain header data. This is perhaps somewhat more secure than either server-assisted clients or header-only clients.

It was just a bit of sarcasm. It is actually funny to read the comments on the coindesk article and get a feel for what the general emotion is about the PBOC bans. Those comments are a clear indication of the fact that China bans are not yet calculated into the current bitcoin price.

I don't understand the Chinese system.

PBOC is not a lawmaker and not a court.

Is there no legal system in China? Why don't these banks and exchanges just continue to operate until they receive a court order, which they can then challenge?  Huh

Nulla poena sine lege, not in China or what?  Angry

not much anymore apparently. The news is pretty serious stuff, and price only dropped $10... and still in a short term uptrend from last monday.

We are not reacting to china news like before, that's a fact. my take is that eventually people will stop giving a flying fuck.
Big money from the west can easily replace china, which is obviously gonna find loopholes to still be in the game anyway.

In China, onlY the communist party matters. Lawmakers, media, PBOC and courts are all sock puppet of the communist party

Gosh, oh gee wiz, this May 10th date seems really REALLY important you guyzzzzz!!?!?!?!  Because China, guyzzz?

It can't possibly be because the China banks want to spread more FUD ahead of the Global Bitcoin Summit 2014 conference in Beijing on May 10th - 11th?  To try to disrupt that event and sway the Chinese even further against bitcoin?  Naw, nothing at all to do with that, huh?  Nope, not at all.

I woud think that the PBoC has the legal power to issue such orders to the banks.  In the US it may be the Federal Reserve Bank ("the Fed") and/or the Securities and Exchanges Comission (SEC) have some such powers, I don't know.  Here in Brazil the Central Bank has substantial regulatory powers over the banks, by law.

The Exchanges could try to challenge the PBoC orders, but I doubt that they would have a leg to stand on.

Academic interest in bitcoin only. Not owner, not trader, very skeptical of its longterm success.
