Crypto Market News: Hong Kong’s move to allow the retail of Bitcoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies could go down in history as a historic masterstroke in the hostile crypto market environment currently prevalent in the United States. Given the geopolitical impact of Hong Kong and ongoing enforcement actions against crypto companies in the US, the timing couldn’t have been better either. US financial markets are plagued by uncertainty about a looming regional banking crisis, along with economic challenges such as debt ceiling concerns and rising inflation.

Recently, Ripple has joined the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) e-HKD pilot program, while top crypto exchanges OKX and Huobi have plans to apply for licenses to operate in Hong Kong. Meanwhile, the announcement to allow retail is driving significant demand for Chinese coins like Conflux (CFX).
Demand rises for Chinese coins
Besides Conflux (CFX), other Chinese coins Filecoin (FIL) and EOS have made at least 7-8% weekly gains. With the start of crypto trading in Hong Kong from June 1, 2023, these coins are likely to gain even further. This trend comes at a time when Bitcoin price is moving sideways and memecoins like PEPE Coin are seeing rising demand.
