Banning bitcoin?

The fast-moving space of crypto and digital currencies took another sudden but not entirely unexpected turn recently when the Chinese government moved to ban Bitcoin—but then didn't entirely. To shed more insight on the situation, we invited Angie Lau, founder and CEO of Forkast.News, to join the podcast and explain the nuance and implications. Ms Lau is a long-time financial news veteran in Asia and regularly speaks with blockchain entrepreneurs, traditional investment leads and financial market regulators. Listen in to what she's learned.


This episode is hosted by Jason Wincuinas at Economist Impact, he heads up our regional finance research in Asia.
