China has banned financial institutions and payment companies from providing services related to cryptocurrency transactions and has warned investors against speculative operations with such currencies.

China banned cryptocurrency exchanges and initial coin offerings but did not restrict holding by individuals.

Institutions should not provide cryptocurrency savings or trust services , or issue related financial products, the statement added.
