"Cryptocurrency mining consumes a lot of energy, which runs counter to China's carbon neutrality goals," explained Chen Jiahe, chief investment officer at Novem Arcae Technologies in Beijing.
Earlier, Vice Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China Liu He announced the need to take measures against mining and crypto trading. He called for tougher regulation of the mining and trading of cryptocurrencies in China, but did not outline specific measures.
Also, the Chinese government news agency Xinhua published an article "Urgently eliminate the hype and chaos around the virtual currency", which talks about four risks associated with the trade and use of cryptocurrencies: market, transactional, technological and legal.
Amid calls from the Chinese authorities to tighten regulation of digital currencies, the value of bitcoin fell by 12%. Today the main cryptocurrency is trading at $ 36.6K, according to CoinGecko.
