China has the second-largest economy in the world. Also, China is home to more than 1.3 billion people. These two factors combined underlines the importance of this country to the digital currency market.
Also, China established itself as the main Bitcoin mining hub in the world. However, the problem with the local market is that in 2017 Chinese authorities made the decision which seriously affected the crypto market in China.
However, this was not an end of the story for cryptocurrencies in China. Moreover, recently China’s President Li Jinping addressed this issue. He said that China should work harder to embrace the blockchain technology.
A Chinese state news agency Xinhua published an article about the oldest cryptocurrency on the market. According to the article, Bitcoin is the first successful application of blockchain technology.
Xinhua described the difference between the public and private keys. This article provided many interesting facts about Bitcoin. However, it also contained information which is not correct. For example, a news agency claimed that Bitcoin is mainly used in darknet transactions.
