China’s Crackdown

China’s crypto crackdown has affected the stability of the market. However, most cryptocurrencies have recovered, rising in value after two days of dips. Bitcoin price finally witnessed a rise of over 2.3% on September 30. Currently, the world’s most popular cryptocurrency is trading at around $43,337.40. The marginal surge in Bitcoin value comes a few days after it experienced dips along with other cryptos. 

The dips in the crypto market were sparked by China’s blanket ban on digital currency. China imposed the ban last week on September 24. The value of bitcoin rose to record highs earlier this year. Bitcoin last attained an all-time high above $63,000 in April. Now a significant number of institutions are embracing digital token. Reputable institutions like PayPal and Fidelity have made moves into cryptocurrency.

Meanwhile, Square and MicroStrategy have used their balance sheets to buy bitcoin. Morgan Stanley is the first big U.S. bank to offer bitcoin funds to its rich clients. Later, JPMorgan followed rivals Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley to provide Bitcoin funds to clients.
