Old FUD, new BTC price dip — Weeks-old China crypto ‘ban’ sparks Bitcoin price drop to $42KVisit Website

Bitcoin vs. China: Don’t believe the “FUD”

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView tracked BTC/USD as it abruptly fell from $45,000 to near $42,000.

The kneejerk reaction came as a memo from China’s central bank, the People’s Bank of China (PBoC), began to circulate online, criminalizing practically all cryptocurrency activity except possession.

As commentators noted, however, the PBoC originally released the updated guidance on Sept. 15 but posted it online on Friday, Sept. 24.

Nonetheless, what has now become a classic source of BTC price pressure — “FUD” over Chinese bans — was quick to take its toll on market sentiment.

“Markets are always reacting so heavily to FUD. Impressive,” Cointelegraph contributor Michaël van de Poppe reacted.

Similar reactions had come about as a result of the alleged impending failure of Chinese property giant Evergrande, this having been a niche topic for a significant period before mainstream media attention sparked knock-on effects across the cryptocurrency and traditional markets.

Altcoins suffer with Ether under $3,000

Altcoins, meanwhile, joined Bitcoin in shedding value following the China narrative returning.
