China ban fails to impact support of Bitcoin network: Report


Bitcoin mining hash rate surged three fold since the national ban on the crypto industry by the Chinese authorities. 

China is a technology-adaptive country in the world and in the present time country’s government agencies are directly active in many types of blockchain-based initiatives, to bring efficiency &  modernization to traditional systems. In the present time Metaverse, NFTs & Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) based works are going on smoothly at a very high level but without the involvement of cryptocurrencies.

On 21 May 2021, The People Bank of China, Central Bank of China, announced a ban on the crypto sector. Under the ban decision, China ordered all kinds of crypto-related companies including mining companies to exit the mainland of China.

When China announced ban on cryptocurrencies, the Bitcoin network hash rate plunged to 86.292 million TH/s. Due to the sudden downfall in the Bitcoin network hash rate, the price of Bitcoin plunged badly within a few hours.
