Status of Blockchain in China

The Blockchain China relationship has an intriguing past and an exciting future. The connection has a love-hate tag. But, On the other hand, China has wholly endorsed the technology than underpins Bitcoin; blockchain.

Before the end of 2017, the interaction between Bitcoin and Chain was very tight. It made China to be the biggest Bitcoin market in the world. This included housing the largest Bitcoin mines and crypto exchanges like Binance.

However, towards the end of 2017, the Bitcoin China relationship turned into hate when the government criminalized Bitcoin and cryptocurrency activities such as mining and exchanges. Bitcoin miners were forced to close shop while most exchanges like Binance relocated to safer grounds. This removed China from being the largest to the smallest, almost insignificant, cryptocurrency market.
