He added that cryptocurrencies are “pure investment speculation,” urging people to steer clear of them. 

Due to the rising popularity of cryptocurrencies, the PBOC moved to ramp up its crackdown on crypto trading

The bank has also done a lot of work to “resolutely” clamp down on illegal cryptocurrency fundraising by cooperating with the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission.
