Chinese are buying Bitcoin as the country's stock market falls

Economy: Chinese are buying Bitcoin as the country's stock market falls

Residents of the People's Republic of China (PRC) are increasingly concerned about the state of their country's stock market. As a result, they are turning to crypto assets that have been banned by authorities, as reported by Reuters.

The media outlet shared the story of Dylan Rin, a participant in the Shanghai financial sector. Rin said that he started investing in bitcoin when he noticed a downward trend in the stock market and the Chinese economy as a whole.

Rin conducted all of his investment transactions discreetly. He purchased bank cards from small financial institutions to buy cryptocurrency. To avoid attracting attention, he limited each transaction to an amount of 50,000 yuan (about $7,000).

Experts emphasize that there are countless such stories in China. Financially savvy people are seeking to diversify their assets in response to deteriorating economic and stock market conditions. To do so, they are taking advantage of legal "loopholes" in the legislation.

Despite the ban on cryptocurrency trading in mainland China and strict capital rules imposed by the authorities, citizens are still finding ways to secretly acquire assets. This is made possible by the financial policies of the #Hong Kong leadership, which supports the legal recognition of the crypto industry, analysts explain.

Chinese citizens use their annual foreign exchange quota of $50,000 to invest in digital assets. Officially, this money is only allowed to be spent on overseas travel or education.

"As retail investors rush into cryptocurrencies, Chinese brokers and financial institutions are not lagging behind. As growth opportunities at home are limited, many of them are exploring the potential to get involved in digital asset businesses in Hong Kong",a senior Hong Kong exchange executive told Bloomberg.

In October 2023, analytics platform Chainalysis released a report with data on the cryptocurrency market in East Asia. According to experts, #China may consider the Hong Kong market as a "testing ground for convergence with cryptocurrencies".

It is worth noting that earlier the Chinese authorities declared transactions with #USDT illegal.
