The Bitcoin market has witnessed a difficult correction due to the continued crackdown on China’s cryptocurrency trading and mining operations. On Monday, People’s Bank of Chinaa advised its banks not only to discourage crypto payments, but also to report cryptocurrency exchanges and over-the-counter resellers [OTC]. These growing restrictions within the country have resulted in the fall of the Bitcoin hashrate.
Bitcoin’s price dropped to $30,000 in May during the sudden drop and was the lowest price point for the digital asset in the recent past. MicroStrategy recently raised $500 million in bonds to acquire more Bitcoin and signaled positive sentiments from institutional investors about the future of the digital asset. This made MicroStrategy the company with the largest share of Bitcoin, followed by Tesla and Square.
The Bitcoin market has responded positively to this news as the price has jumped from $31k to $32k at the time of this writing.
