China’s Cryptocurrency Stocks Left Behind In Bitcoin Frenzy
China’s blockchain stocks are missing out on the cryptocurrency mania that has pushed their global peers to record highs. China’s Cryptocurrency Stocks Left Behind In Bitcoin Frenzy
A Bloomberg-curated basket of seven key Chinese A-share stocks with ties to the blockchain technology underpinning cryptocurrencies — including Shenzhen Forms Syntron Information Co., Shenzhen Ysstech Info-Tech Co. and Brilliance Technology Co. — has fallen about 16% so far this year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. That compares with a 36% rise in an Elwood Asset Management index tracking global blockchain-linked shares.
“Not every company will stand out in the blockchain sector,” said Reo Liao, a market analyst with IG Australia. “The recent surge in Bitcoin price may suggest that digital currency and digital-asset trading platform concepts will be the ones that attract all investors. That’s why we see all related stocks climb these days.”
Global crypto stocks have surged as Bitcoin more than quadrupled in value over the past year, with the Elwood index tracking blockchain-linked shares hitting an all-time high this month. But after successive crackdowns on the industry, including a ban on transactions between fiat and cryptocurrencies in 2017, China lacks a cohort of local stocks tied to digital coin exchanges and trading platforms.
Even domestic firms which have worked with Chinese regulators, such as Huobi Group, are listed in Hong Kong, while some of the biggest China-based miners have chosen a U.S.-listing. Canaan Inc. has more than doubled over the last 12 months, and Ebang International Holdings Inc. has jumped over 30% since its mid-2020 listing.
Chinese firms like Syntron and Ysstech are working elsewhere in the crypto field, developing blockchain technology for various business applications, Liao said. Others work in security tools and banking machines.
“These companies have lots of diversification in other areas,” he said. The stocks that have rallied “have high focus on digital currencies. They are more sensitive to the Bitcoin price movement.”
Elsewhere in Asia, crypto stocks tied more closely to Bitcoin are booming. Monex Group Inc. in Japan and BC Technology Group Ltd. in Hong Kong have more than doubled in value in the past year, while Korea’s Woori Technology Investment Co. has surged more than 70%.
The gains are even more massive in the U.S., where crypto miner Marathon Patent Group Inc. has surged more than 3,000% in the past 12 months.
China’s cryptocurrency landscape is further complicated by the central bank’s development of the digital yuan at the same time as authorities restrict the wider industry, leaving investors following the government’s lead.
“For the most part, retail investors in China follow the ‘supreme leader’ mode when it comes to out-of-the-norm investment structures,” said Stephen Innes, chief global market strategist with Axi.
Bitcoin, Ether Rally Back To Levels Just Before China Crypto Ban
The cryptocurrency market made a swift comeback from the turbulence last week triggered by China’s latest crackdown volley, with the likes of Bitcoin and Ether recouping most of their losses on Monday.
Bitcoin rallied to about $44,000 as of 1:35 p.m. in Hong Kong, near the level when the People’s Bank of China on Friday announced its latest step in reining in crypto. Ether broke above last week’s level at $3,100.
“Over the weekend sessions, Bitcoin has shown some resilience and has now recovered the majority of those losses,” said Jeffrey Halley, senior market analyst at Oanda Corp., in a note Monday. “It may well be that China’s previously announced crackdowns had already been built into prices.”
Crypto markets were roiled on Friday when the PBOC issued a newly restrictive ban on transactions and mining, in conjunction with several other state agencies. That step signaled that policies in China may be moving toward a more serious and coordinated level. At the same time, previous statements from Beijing about bans haven’t killed crypto entirely in the country, so some traders were more sanguine about the effect.
One area not faring so well: stocks or tokens with significant Chinese crypto reliance. Hong Kong-listed Huobi Technology Holdings Ltd., an exchange with a significant mainland presence dropped as much as 33%. The Huobi Token was off about 10% in the past 24 hours, according to CoinGecko pricing.
Meanwhile Fujian-based software firm Meitu Inc. fell as much as 6.1%, while GRG Banking Equipment Co. dropped up to 2.4%. Those falls come after crypto-linked stocks fell in other regions — like MicroStrategy, which declined as much as 6.7% Friday in the U.S.
China Crypto Investors Are Buying More As Beijing Circles
Some Chinese cryptocurrency holders remain undeterred even after a further crackdown on their industry roiled markets Friday.
Bitcoin was trading around $42,600 as of noon on Tuesday in Hong Kong, near the level when the People’s Bank of China on Friday announced its latest step in reining in crypto. China’s central bank banned all crypto transactions, vowed to root out mining of digital assets and closed a loophole that enabled citizens to maintain accounts with offshore exchanges.
The step prompted exchange operators Huobi and Binance to stop letting traders use mainland China mobile numbers to register new accounts. New sign-ups are still available for Hong Kong users on both platforms.
Industry veterans said Beijing’s latest warning could deter new entrants into the crypto scene, but for those who have weathered several crackdowns in the past, it represented another opportunity to buy at lower prices.
“I have bought some when it dipped,” said Bobby Lee, the chief executive officer of crypto wallet firm Ballet Global Inc. The China crackdown hasn’t been as bad as many people thought, so “a dark cloud is removed,” he said.
Other crypto holders in China echoed his sentiments.
“These policies are not new to us, so we view them as a buy signal,” said Stephen, a Shanghai-based crypto investor who preferred to be identified by his first name only. He bought $20,000 of Bitcoin over the weekend, he said, adding that it’s still possible via many centralized and over-the-counter exchanges.
However, he doesn’t see it as likely that everyone will have the same reaction.
“People new to crypto might feel scared. Some of them will quit,” he said.
Another crypto investor who declined to be identified due to the sensitive nature of the topic, also said that the latest crackdown wouldn’t scare off longstanding investors who have found workarounds to buying virtual currencies on official exchanges.
Some are turning to MetaMask — a digital wallet online game players use to buy and sell non-fungible tokens (NFTs), but that can also be used to trade cryptocurrencies, she said.
While Chinese regulators have already banned trading and mining of Bitcoin and other virtual currencies, they are unlikely to implement an outright ban on the holding of digital assets because it would be too difficult to enforce, Stephen predicted.
“The government is smart,” he said. “They won’t issue a policy they cannot implement.”
Even The People’s Bank of China Can’t Kill Bitcoin FOMO
What’s “bad” for crypto is apparently “good” — despite the evidence suggesting otherwise.
The cryptocurrency crowd has wasted no time in dancing on the grave of China’s “FUD” (internet speak for fear, uncertainty and doubt). Last week’s move by the People’s Bank of China to ban crypto transactions and mining dented the prices of Bitcoin, Ethereum and other digital currencies, but they’ve largely rebounded.
The bulls reckon the latest attempt by Beijing to crack down on crypto — the seventh, by research firm Fundstrat’s calculations — will fail to throttle an asset that bypasses borders and banking systems.
They also hope that what seems “bad” for crypto will prove to be “good.” Advocates are using China’s ban as ammunition to promote an opportunity for America: It can lead the way for a more permissive approach to crypto.
This looks like the kind of warped logic that paints Bitcoin mining as a “green” form of energy use, even as it breathes new life into aging fossil-fuel power plants. What’s bad for crypto sometimes really is just bad.
The jury may be out on whether this ban will be more successful than previous ones, but painting it as a way for the U.S. to steal a march on China is a stretch. The Biden administration has made clear it sees cryptocurrencies as fuel for ransomware, a vehicle for fraud and a potential threat to financial stability and post-Covid reconstruction.
The crypto industry has attempted to plead for more lenient treatment as a poke in China’s eye in the past — see Facebook Inc.’s Mark Zuckerberg’s defense of the Libra project — to no avail. More regulation of this sector is undoubtedly on the way, and those on the frontlines know it.
The question of whether the U.S. could follow suit with a ban of its own, as Ray Dalio has imagined, is a trickier one. The laser-eyed crowd may have a point in that it’s getting rather late in the day for the U.S. to try the Chinese approach, not least with Wall Street eyeing a bigger share of the crypto pie. But that doesn’t mean regulation is out of sight. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.
The crypto market has metastasized into a $2 trillion monster, driven by a Fear of Missing Out (FOMO) that continues to draw in smart wealthy people, especially in North America.
That’s where one-third of specialist crypto hedge funds — worth $3.8 billion, according to PwC — are listed, and where endowment funds and hedge-fund billionaires are starting to dip their toes. The time for regulation is ticking as the ranks of wealthy backers grows.
Ironically, one of the closest things to a U.S. crypto “ban” — a raft of proposals by the Bank for International Settlements that might force banks to hold one dollar in capital for each dollar worth of Bitcoin — has triggered an outcry from Wall Street.
A letter sent by several financial-industry associations to the BIS called the package too “restrictive,” and would stop them catering to customer demand. Even with evidence piling up that crypto is a nightmare when it comes to environmental, social and governance concerns, plenty of investors are happy to keep buying.
Those assuming that the rivalry between the U.S. and China will be favorable for a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin are kidding themselves. The ante is being upped for regulators in a post-Covid world, where lives are increasingly lived online and where technology makes weak governance an even bigger threat.
China’s crypto ban is designed to boost its own pandemic priorities — including favoring a digital-currency revamp of the yuan. Central banks elsewhere in the world have their own versions of programmable money in the works.
A truly effective global crackdown on crypto is only hard to imagine because of the political will and capital needed to achieve it; it’s not a technological impossibility.
There would need to be international cooperation like that seen in the crackdown on tax havens, combined with national measures like those 20th-century rules preventing the private ownership of gold. But China and Covid may end up making this mix more likely, not less.
Crypto-evangelists should bear this in mind. FOMO may have the upper hand now, but FUD won’t be far behind.
More Crypto Platforms Exit China Following Ban On Transactions
Several crypto exchanges and other crypto-service companies are giving Chinese users the boot, according to multiple reports.
At least 18 platforms providing services related to crypto have either announced they are exiting the market in China or are now inaccessible, Chinese media reported Tuesday.
* Crypto exchange BitMart said it will clear out user accounts registered to mainland China by Nov. 30 in order to comply with Chinese regulations and “safeguard user assets.” After that date, it will stop providing all services to users in mainland China.
* Trading information platform Feixiaohao (which translates into “Not small numbers”) said it will stop providing all services to China on Tuesday.
* Crypto exchange Biki said it will stop accepting all deposits on Tuesday, allowing users only to withdraw, so that it can cease all operations in China by Nov. 30. Platform tokens will be repurchased until Oct. 31.
* Trading information provider TradingView has been inaccessible in China on Tuesday, according to monitoring site GreatFire.org. Crypto-focused sites CoinGecko and CoinMarketCap were also blocked late on Monday, the Block reported.
* At least another 11 companies have reportedly stopped offering services to Chinese users, Medium reported.
* On Friday, China’s top financial regulators said they are banning all crypto-related transactions, warning employees of overseas-based exchanges that they will be investigated, and called for increased censorship on crypto information providers.
* Crypto exchange Huobi said on Sunday it will remove all mainland Chinese accounts by the end of the year.
* BitMart was founded in 2017. It has received investment from Shanghai-based Fenbushi Capital and has more than 5 million investors, according to its website.
Cryptocurrency Exchanges Curb Trading From China After Beijing’s Warning
Huobi Global said it stopped allowing new customers in mainland China to register accounts.
One of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges said it would close all user accounts in mainland China by the end of the year, days after the country’s central bank declared all crypto-related transactions illegal.
Huobi Global, which was founded in 2013 and currently operates from offices in Singapore, South Korea, the U.S. and other countries, over the weekend said it stopped allowing new customers in mainland China to register accounts. The exchange will also gradually retire existing accounts in China by the end of 2021 to ensure the safety of its customers’ assets, it added.
Another big cryptocurrency exchange, Binance, said Monday that it recently started blocking account registrations using China cellular phone numbers.
Like Huobi, Binance was also originally founded in China. Both firms had been facilitating so-called peer-to-peer transactions by matching people who wanted to buy and sell cryptocurrencies using the yuan.
Beijing has regularly moved to rein in crypto-related activities, including by banning exchanges from operating within its borders since 2017 and more recently cracking down on crypto mining and forcing companies to shift their computers elsewhere.
But individuals in the country have continued to find ways to trade bitcoin and other digital currencies, often via transactions facilitated by platforms operating offshore.
In a move targeting such platforms, the People’s Bank of China this month said it is illegal for overseas exchanges to serve residents in China through the internet. The regulator also warned that the firms’ employees based in mainland China would be investigated if they continued to advertise or offer crypto-related services.
The price of bitcoin dropped after the Chinese regulator’s notice on banning crypto-related transactions was published Friday. On Monday, bitcoin was trading at $43,490, according to CoinDesk, after recouping some recent losses.
Du Jun, a co-founder of Huobi, said in a statement that an unspecified portion of the exchange’s users are in mainland China, adding that the account closures would have a short-term impact on revenue. He added that nearly 70% of the group’s global business originates from other countries and that proportion is “steadily increasing.”
Mr. Du didn’t reference Chinese regulators’ toughened stance on the industry. He said Huobi has legal business licenses in multiple jurisdictions and “will double down on our compliance efforts and continue to build compliant operations on a global scale.”
Shares of Hong Kong-listed Huobi Technology Holdings Ltd. , a unit of Huobi Global that manufactures electronic products and operates a virtual-asset service platform, tumbled 21.5% on Monday.
On Monday, a Binance spokesperson said users in China haven’t been able to access its website since 2017 when it was blocked. The company also said its app isn’t available in China. Its peer-to-peer cryptocurrency trading service was launched in October 2019, according to a blog post by the company, which recently removed a reference to its services for the Chinese market.
FTX, a major crypto derivatives exchange that was based in Hong Kong, in recent days moved its headquarters to the Bahamas, an offshore tax haven.
Sam Bankman-Fried, FTX’s founder and chief executive, said on Twitter Saturday that the Bahamas is one of the few places with a “comprehensive framework” for cryptocurrencies.
“The Bahamas has emerged from Covid lively, safe, and without quarantine,” he added. It was an apparent contrast to the situation in Hong Kong, whose strict border controls and long quarantine requirements have drawn many complaints from the international business community.
“It is impractical to have a global business based out of a jurisdiction that we can’t easily take business trips from,” FTX said in a statement.
China’s tough stance on cryptocurrencies doesn’t directly apply to Hong Kong, which has been an active venue for the industry. But the city is considering its own rules, including by potentially limiting trading to professional investors—something FTX had already pre-emptively implemented.
Crypto Rebounds As Investors Look Past China Bombshell
China’s fiercest shot yet across the bows of the cryptocurrency world appears to have left investors mostly unruffled.
Though Bitcoin and some of its peers tumbled Friday after the People’s Bank of China issued a statement banning crypto transactions and vowing to root out the mining of digital assets, they have largely rebounded since. Bitcoin rallied close to $44,000 Monday, near the level it was at before China’s announcement. Ether broke above last week’s $3,100 level.
“There does appear to be buying support for both Bitcoin and Ether coming online as market participants digest the information,” Fundstrat strategists said late Friday as the coins began retracing their losses. “This is not the first time such an announcement has come out of China,” and if “we broaden our definition of ‘ban,’ then we can pinpoint seven dates, including today, in which we witnessed some semblance of a crypto crackdown” from Beijing.
The PBoC’s move closed the longstanding loophole that enables citizens to maintain accounts with offshore exchanges. It also forbade the platforms from hiring locally for roles such as marketing, tech and payment, limiting their ability to serve Chinese customers.
Still, many miners have already moved out of China, which in April had a 46% share of the global hash rate, a measure of the computing power used in mining and processing, according to the Cambridge Bitcoin Electricity Consumption Index.
Since the crackdowns began, the hash rate dropped by more than half from a mid-May peak through early July, Blockchain.com data shows. Its recovery indicates that miners have come back, whether inside China or elsewhere. In the immediate aftermath of the Friday announcement, the hash rate stayed fairly steady.
The fallout from the announcement was immediately felt at Huobi, the popular offshore exchange, which stopped new-user registrations using mainland China phone numbers. It said it would “gradually retire existing mainland China user accounts” by Dec. 31. Binance also stopped new-user registrations from the mainland.
Huobi’s shares fell 22% on Monday. Still, its token was up 13% from 24 hours prior as of 9:45 a.m. London time, CoinGecko pricing showed.
Alibaba also responded to the new rules, saying it will prohibit the sale of virtual currency miners, in addition to the prohibition against selling virtual currencies such as Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum. It’s closing the Blockchain Miners and Blockchain Miner Accessories categories effective Oct. 8, it said in a statement.
Others may yet benefit. A report on Friday from Grayscale, a digital-asset management firm, noted that decentralized finance, or DeFi, and U.S.-regulated exchanges might be among those primed to do well. DeFi could serve as an alternative for Chinese crypto investors should centralized players be forced out of the country.
There’s also the prospect of U.S.-regulated venues gaining volume as trading ebbs on large Asian exchanges as a result of the China ban.
“Should more crypto trading move to the U.S., regulators may benefit from increased market surveillance, providing increased market transparency and investor protections in the long run,” Grayscale said.
China’s Crypto Holdouts: Bitcoin Nodes And OTC Desks Struggle On
There are still a handful of Bitcoin nodes hanging on in China, and OTC trading remains viable, but it may not be for long.
Despite Beijing’s ever-increasing crackdown on the crypto industry, there are still some signs of life in the People’s Republic regarding the Bitcoin network and over-the-counter (OTC) trading.
China intensified its clampdown on crypto last week in an effort to suppress any remaining activity related to digital assets within its borders. The regime specifically targeted crypto transactions, but as researched by Cointelegraph, this action is nothing new, with at least 19 similar crackdowns over the past decade or so.
Despite the latest move, there are still 135 Bitcoin nodes in operation in China according to data from Bitrawr, which measures nodes by geographical location. However, this is just 1.21% of the total 11,262 Bitcoin nodes spread across the planet. There may be more if they are operating behind virtual private networks and/or using onion routing with Tor, which masks locations.
Bitcoin nodes are the software that runs the protocol, containing the full ledger or a segment of it containing a history of the transaction data. Distributed and decentralized systems are specifically designed to be hard to shut down completely, so the regime may struggle to extinguish these final few hangers-on or those operating via Tor.
While it’s difficult to put figures on the volume due to its opaque nature, OTC trading is also maintaining a foothold in China according to various reports as is the local currency pair.
Local media outlet Wu Blockchain reported that the RMB/USDT pair, which is still offered by major exchanges, such as OKEx and Huobi, has been trading at a premium. It noted panic selling last week, which has since subsided.
OKEx is currently offering 6.35 yuan for 1 Tether (USDT) where the actual exchange rate for a greenback is 6.47, according to XE.com.
OTC trades are carried out peer-to-peer (P2P), which circumvents the usage of a bank or the spot markets on centralized exchanges — though many exchanges do have related OTC desks. According to Coin Dance, volumes in China have been relatively stable since early 2020, with around 7 million yuan (around $1 million) being traded per week on P2P platform LocalBitcoins.
Bobby Lee, former CEO of China’s first crypto exchange BTCC, thinks that Beijing will target OTC desks in its next crackdown. Earlier this week, he said that OTC platforms that are operated by the big exchanges will be closed down or forced to exclude Chinese users. Speaking to Bloomberg on Wednesday, Lee added:
“They really don’t want any loopholes where people can use a digital currency as a vehicle to move assets abroad.”
He followed that up with a prediction that BTC markets are due another FOMO rally that could send prices to $200,000.
DeFi And DEX Volumes Soar Amid China’s Crypto Ban And Us Regulatory Risk
Data shows that crypto holders are increasingly shifting to DeFi protocols and DEXs as China continues its cryptocurrency crackdown and fears of heavy-handed regulation scare US-based traders.
Last week, China’s heavy-handed crackdown on crypto trading briefly sent shockwaves across the market as Bitcoin (BTC) and altcoin prices saw a sharp drop following the announcement, but as is the case with all things crypto-related, the market bounced back as resilient traders found other ways to participate in the market.
Part of China’s goal in limiting citizens’ ability to trade cryptocurrency seems focused on discouraging the use of cryptocurrencies and the growing decentralized finance (DeFi) ecosystem, but these maneuvers appear to be having the opposite effect, as the token price and protocol activity for projects like Uniswap and dYdX have seen an uptick since the crackdown began.
According to data from Chainalysis, there has been a significant amount of regional Bitcoin flows happening within eastern Asia, as highlighted by the tall orange bar in the graph below. This suggests that crypto holders in the region have been shifting around their holdings in response to the regulatory crackdown.
As stated by Chainalysis, “Assets typically flow within a region, likely due to preferences for local exchanges, but flows between regions often occur as a result of regulatory concerns, geopolitical changes, or significant market price variations.”
The lack of flows out of Eastern Asia, combined with crypto exchanges like Huobi and Binance suspending services for Chinese residents, suggests that funds are being kept within the region — but not on centralized exchanges.
Gains In The DeFi Ecosystem
At the same time that this increased movement within the East Asia region was occurring, activity on decentralized exchanges like Uniswap and the decentralized derivatives exchange dYdX has been on the rise as traders in China seek out a safe haven for their crypto activities.
DYdX is a particularly helpful data point, as it is now the most widely used decentralized derivatives exchange and has seen a spike in demand since regulators from around the world dropped the hammer on centralized exchanges with loose Know Your Customer policies that offer derivatives services.
According to data from Token Terminal, dYdX is in the top five ranking for numerous categories over the past week, including the increase in DYDX token price, total protocol revenue, fees paid, the price-to-sales ratio and the price-to-earnings ratio. The exchange also rose to the top six in terms of increases in total value locked.
A closer look at the available data also shows that layer-two protocols and layer-one Ethereum competitors have also seen some of the biggest gains over the past week, led by Avalanche-based protocols like Trader Joe and Pangolin, as well as the Fantom network.
Above all else, what the recent data shows is that the decentralized finance ecosystem is performing as it was originally intended by providing an uncensorable way for crypto holders to transact outside of the control and purview of governments and financial regulators.
