China Declares War On Bitcoin

China has declared war on bitcoin, but not for the reasons you might suspect.  And the news, says Chris Chappell of China Uncensored, is “stirring wider fear into a porridge of peril.”

And, as you probably guessed, it’s all about control. China accounts for 65 percent of all bitcoin mining globally, as compared to 7.2 percent for the United States.
