    Chinese regulators, including its central bank and securities and foreign exchange regulators, have stepped up to ban the use of cryptocurrency in the country. That means that exchanges both inside and outside the country can no longer do business with its citizens.

    So why is this dropping cryptos today? China offers the second-largest economy in the world. It was also seeing major interest from crypto mining companies. With this new ban in place, it comes as no surprise that crypto would be taking a beating.
