The People's Bank of China has returned to criticism of cryptocurrencies amid a worsening economic situation in the world.

On March 22, the regulator published a large-scale warning in its WeChat account under the heading “Protection of the rights and interests of consumers of financial services”. It describes three ways in which cryptocurrency service providers can mislead consumers.

First of all, the amount of fraud transactions with bots is serious. The average turnover rate of the top three overseas crypto currency exchanges is much higher than that of foreign licensed exchanges. Second, market manipulation exists in these exchanges where forced leveraged trading eventually causes the exchanges to explode. Third, money laundering is a big issue.

In addition, the Chinese Central Bank calls the opinion that Bitcoin may serve as a protective asset, erroneous. The regulator indicates its high volatility and recommends that citizens not follow the example of other investors and refuse to participate in cryptocurrency trading.
