    Alipay to ban all Bitcoin transactions

    Chinese payments platform Alipay will ban all transactions related to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. The news was confirmed on Alipay's official Twitter page on Thursday, with a statement reading: "If any transactions are identified as being related to bitcoin or other virtual currencies, Alipay immediately stops the relevant payment services." The update came just hours after Binance CEO Chanpeng 'CZ' Zhao announced that its P2P platform will support WeChat and Alipay as fiat-on-ramps for Chinese customers. In direct response to CZ, Alipay wrote "NO, you cannot" in reference to its suggested use as a potential fiat gateway. If any transactions are identified as being related to bitcoin or other virtual currencies, @Alipay immediately stops the relevant payment services. -- AlipayThe post Alipay to ban all Bitcoin transactions appeared first on Coin Rivet.

    Bitcoin shows signs of life with move towards $8,600

    Despite being battered and bruised over the past month, Bitcoin has recovered from last week's $7,800 low with a 3.81% 24-hour rally to test $8,600.

Bitcoin, in the same way as gold, has often been touted as a hedge to the existing financial system in that it doesn't rely on policy changes, interest rates or inflation. Its nature as a decentralised asset has seen retail investors flock to Bitcoin in recent years, although this, coupled with a lack of liquidity, has increased levels of volatility. From a technical perspective, Bitcoin experienced a swift rejection from the 200The post Bitcoin shows signs of life with move towards $8,600 appeared first on Coin Rivet.
