The Agricultural Bank of China (ABC) affirmed its ban on crypto transactions, according to a now-deleted statement on its website, a translation of which was tweeted by Colin Wu on Monday.

  • The bank cited recent guidance from the People’s Bank of China for it continuing to carry out a crackdown on virtual-currency transactions.

  • Any such behaviors detected would result in the “termination of customer relationships” and be reported to the relevant authorities, the statement said.

  • The announcement by ABC, the world’s third-largest bank, comes against the backdrop of the wider crackdown of crypto mining and trading by the Chinese government.

  • Bitcoin’s price has dropped about 7% in the last 24 hours, and was trading about $33,300 at press time.
