News of Chinese ban on cryptocurrency activities did spread much gloom across cryptocurrency space. But subsequent news hinting Chinese officials reconsidering their decision has erupted a string of happy fireworks across cryptocurrency platform boosting up the Bitcoin price to make a new all-time high at $6248, according to the Poloniex Cryptocurrency Exchange.

Following an earlier ICO ban, the subsequent ban on bitcoin exchanges were imposed by Chinese regulators in September. The government hinted at reasons such as regulatory concerns, money laundering issues and competition to fiat currency for imposing the ban. This lead to widespread speculation with reports suggesting that Bitcoin miners were selling off their hardware given the looming ban.

Global economy would receive a solid boost if the Chinese officials take their final stand in favour of cryptocurrencies but the activities of Chinese markets cannot normalize overnight given the fact that many popular exchanges have shuttered completely.
