State-Run Newspaper Warns About Bitcoin Becoming Worthless

China’s state-run newspaper Economic Daily published an article warning about bitcoin Wednesday, according to SCMP. The nationwide newspaper is directly under the control of the Central Committee of the ruling Chinese Communist Party.

The article warned that investors should beware of the risk of bitcoin prices “heading to zero” amid the recent crypto market sell-off.

“Bitcoin is nothing more than a string of digital codes, and its returns mainly come from buying low and selling high,” the newspaper details, adding:

In the future, once investors’ confidence collapses or when sovereign countries declare bitcoin illegal, it will return to its original value, which is utterly worthless.

The newspaper details that the lack of regulation in Western countries, such as the United States, helped create a highly-leveraged market that is “full of manipulation and pseudo-technology concepts.” The article describes it as an “important external factor” contributing to bitcoin’s volatility.

The warning from the state-run media reflects Beijing’s firm stance against cryptocurrency and related activities that the government has outlawed.
