China’s Central Bank, Bank of China issued an infographic on Bitcoin. It aims to summarize the history, intrinsic value, and its relevance in China. The press release is made with a lot of illustrations to make it easy for interpretation.

Recently, Bitcoin proponents have seen any mention or slight development as a positive signal. Samson Mow, an entrepreneur and early adopter recently tweeted,

Yesterday the #BankofChina posted up an article about #Bitcoin. They explained how $BTC works, why the price is going up, and why it’s valuable. Never thought I’d see that happen. ?#Bullish

Nevertheless, it is not entirely to be mistaken as a buy signal as well, because the infographic is filled with warnings as well. It showcased the highlights of the cryptocurrency markets in the last couple of years. From Bitcoin Pizza Day, Mt. Gox to Facebook’s announcement of Libra, it has tried to capture all the highlights.
