The US media reported that the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) and the People's Bank of China (PBOC) allegedly intend to jointly take decisive action against "all aspects and services associated with bitcoin trade in the territory of mainland China and Hong Kong."

The e-mail states that PBOC and HKMA will announce the introduction of new measures to counter money laundering in Beijing on February 14 as part of a policy to combat "all services associated with virtual currencies and the activities of individuals and legal entities, including market makers, mining operators, trading platforms and wallets. "

Representatives of regulators in Beijing and Hong Kong reported that the holding of such an event in their plans is not included. About this writes South China Morning Post.

The letter that was at the disposal of the publication was sent from the address "@". Due to this fact, people believed it. The owner of the box was an employee of one of the offices of the Central Bank of China. He said that he had no idea about the letters sent from his mailbox, which, he said, was hacked.

Analysts suggest that the box was hacked in order to exert negative pressure on the market by cryptocurrency hackers who could take short positions in bitcoin and thus expected to earn.

I’m not sure it always works, but especially when they can make use of mistranslations and ambiguities, I’m sure they can spread a bit of panic. The ruse is effective especially in an immature market with a very low barrier to entry, and where there are many day traders who might be manipulated that way.

At the beginning of the week, the Chinese government edition really announced the introduction of new restrictions for crypto-currency traders.

He explained that the false information surrounding Bitcoin and blockchain-derived systems made him come out of the shadows

A senior researcher at nChain, Craig Wright, sent the Commission on the US Exchange Commodity Trading (CFTC) introductory information on cryptocurrency mechanics in response to a request from the Office. But even in the official document he did not miss the opportunity to remind everyone that it was he who allegedly was the creator of Bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto.

My name is Dr. Craig Wright and under the pseudonym of Satoshi Nakamoto I completed a project I started in 1997 that was filed with the Australian government in part under an AusIndustry project registered with the Dept. of Innovation as BlackNet. Ethereum is a poorly designed copy of bitcoin designed with the purpose of completing the promise of smart contracts and scripting that were delivered within bitcoin but which were hobbled by the core developers of bitcoin who sought to enable anonymous transactions to exist within the system. 

Craig Wright


Earlier in February, the “self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto” announced that he possesses a patent, allegedly capable of restricting the right to issue JPM Coin.

In October 2017, Craig Wright made a mistake confirming that he was not Satoshi Nakamoto.
