China’s Blockchain-Not-Bitcoin Stance Reaffirmed on State TV

beincrypto

20d ago

In yet another significant cryptocurrency-related development coming out of China, state-run CCTV1 aired a high-profile television program on blockchain earlier today that was negative towards cryptocurrencies.

The nearly hour-long program has reaffirmed past speculations that the Chinese government is still in no mood to embrace decentralized digital currencies. In fact, it had some rather harsh adjectives such as “illegal ponzi,” “financial fraud”, and “illegal security” to describe most cryptocurrencies and ICOs.

The only solace for the broader cryptocurrency community is perhaps in the fact that the program refrained from painting Bitcoin, specifically, with the same brush — though one may assume it falls under the same umbrella.

The CCTV program in question is Focus Report, which basically presents in-depth commentaries on burning socioeconomic issues. Today’s edition of the show was entirely dedicated to blockchain technology and its offshoots.

Primarily, the show spoke favorably of blockchain technology, which has gained a lot of affection from the communist regime of late — leading many to speculate if Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies could expect a similar affection from an erstwhile-hostile establishment. To their disappointment, that is not the case and it couldn’t be any clearer now that President Xi Jinping has himself gone on record reaffirming that.

According to Dovey Wan, President Xi said that, despite appearing attractive today, most public blockchain-based crypto-projects could “be on the list of crime” in the foreseeable future.

Xi was saying in that clip (not a word by word translation as it’s quite verbal)

“Even tho these seem to be lively and vibrant today, tomorrow they may all be on the list (of crime)”

While the CCTV show did indicate that the government is not in favor of public blockchain-based cryptocurrencies, it didn’t pinpoint Bitcoin specifically as “fraudulent” or an imminent threat.

Recently, the official mouthpiece of the ruling dispensation had called Bitcoin the first successful application blockchain technology. The state-backed media has been proactively urging cryptocurrency traders not to mistake the government’s blockchain push as tacit approval for Bitcoin, however, as BeInCrypto has previously reported.

On a related note, China is preparing to launch its own central bank-backed digital currency called DCEP. However, there won’t be any decentralization element to it.
