The new chairman of the People’s Bank of China called bitcoin a currency that gives freedom to any person who uses it.
He also compared bitcoin with adrenaline, which for a long time spurred the interest of local investors.
These words of the new head of the central bank of China sounded in the official address after the change of the NBK chairman earlier this week.
The new head of the NSC was born in 1958 and is a doctor of economic sciences. Since 1997, he held various positions in the structure of the Chinese Central Bank, including the head of the Monetary Policy Department, and then the deputy head of the NBK.
On Monday, March 19, after a record 15 years of stay at the head of the national financial regulator, Zhou Xiaochuan, who was called one of the most influential figures in the world of finance, left his post.
One of his latest statements was the refusal to recognize bitcoin and other crypto-currencies as a means of payment. As then declared Zhou Xiaochuan, too fast distribution of such “unreliable” financial products can lead to the most unpredictable negative consequences on the financial market.
