Several municipalities in Beijing, including the Financial Supervision and Administration Service, the People’s Bank of China Business Administration Division, the Banking and Insurance Regulatory Service, and the Securities Market Regulatory Service, have called on businesses to abandon cryptocurrency trading activities.

The regulatory authorities noted that some cryptocurrency platforms have already seriously violated the rules prohibiting ICOs issued in 2017. Moreover, the institutions called on Chinese companies to impede the promotion of cryptocurrency projects and platforms, as well as to report on all violations of the relevant rules.

It is worth noting that such policy of the Chinese authorities is conducted in parallel with the development of a national cryptocurrency. As you know, the People's Bank of China is preparing to test the electronic payment system in digital currency (DC / EP) in the cities of Shenzhen and Suzhou.

Seven state enterprises were selected as a platform for testing the digital renminbi: four commercial banks and three telecommunications giants (China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom). The pilot program will affect the field of transport, education, trade and medical services.
