Three major Chinese banking and finance associations recently issued a directive significantly limiting access to and protection for cryptocurrency in that country. According to a recent report, the restrictions prohibit banks from allowing their customers access to cryptocurrency trading or storage, and prohibit banks from providing insurance to cryptocurrency businesses or investments. The restrictions also reportedly prohibit web platforms from hosting cryptocurrency coin companies and running advertisements for cryptocurrency-related activities.
In Hong Kong, according to recent reports, the government has issued proposals to restrict cryptocurrency exchanges to professional investors, and to require that the exchanges be licensed by the city's market regulator. The current existing rules reportedly provide for an "opt-in" approach pursuant to which exchanges may apply to the Securities and Futures Commission, but they are not required to do so.
