China to Pump $28 Billion into Economy, Crypto Waits for Boost
October 17, 2019

The Chinese Central Bank has pumped nearly $30 billion into the economy after recent data showed a slowdown. The crypto investors of China may get another lucky break if the funds overflow into the sector.

It has been reported by Bloomberg that the People’s Bank of China (PBoC) injected $28 billion through loans to commercial banks. The sum, equivalent to $200 billion yuan, will be available for a year-long term. The Central Bank accelerated the new cash injection, which was expected on November 5, this year.

Likewise, China’s economy has been drenched with cash, through a combination of direct injections. After the trade war with the US slowed down economic output, the Central Bank took measures, by reducing the reserve requirements of banks, and lowering the costs on corporate loans.

Becky Liu, the Head of China Macro Strategy at Standard Chartered Plc., said:

“They probably want to inject more long-term liquidity” to ensure ample supply during the tax payment season in mid-October and to support the economy, which is still facing growth pressure.”

While those cash injections are not new for China, this may be another boost to the local crypto sector. At least some of the excess wealth finds its way into crypto trades. Despite China’s capital controls and attempt to avoid fiat-to-crypto conversions, there are ample opportunities for space to still benefit.

Crypto Trading Makes Use of Excess Liquidity

Mining is one way that Chinese crypto enthusiasts gain access to coins and consequently, fresh fiat. With hashing activity near peak performance, Chinese miners may have found a way to redirect some of the liquidity.

It has also been reported that the payment app of Alipay and WeChat denied having allowed crypto transactions, but observers claimed that indeed the apps are used to make crypto purchases.

However, Usage and trades of Tether (USDT) also allow the conversion of yuan to funds that can be moved freely across borders.

In the coming months, the maturity of 400 billion yuan instruments is expected. The bank may lower its rate toward 3.2%, to boost economic growth.

Thus, third-quarter economic growth in China is expected at 6.1% year-on-year, the slowest pace since 1992, diverging from previously seen red-hot, double-digit growth.
