This summer, word started spreading over Chinese social media about a conference in Dali, a city nestled among 4,000-meter (13,100-foot) peaks in the country’s southwest.
The organizers expected fewer than 200 attendees, but ended up selling out the 1,000-person venue only to see more than double that number ultimately show up for the August event. The topic of the gathering: crypto, the sector China’s government declared largely illegal a year ago.
Before the clampdown, China was emerging as the epicenter of the crypto world, spawning giant exchanges like Binance Holdings Ltd. and the biggest Bitcoin mining firms.

Young Americans aged between 21 and 42 are 7.5 times more likely to hold crypto in their portfolios than investors over 43, a new survey from Bank of America shows.
According to the survey, younger Americans with money to invest are also less interested in stocks than older investors, with the younger cohort instead viewing crypto and other so-called alternative investments as their “No. 1 choice.”
An alternative investment normally refers to investments in any other asset than stocks, bonds and cash. This investment category has become increasingly popular in recent years, as many investors have seen the stock market as overvalued and risky, while bank savings have paid out interest rates far below the rate of inflation in most Western countries.
Tesla's Bitcoin holdings remain unchanged from the second quarter of 2022, according to documents released by the electric car manufacturer ahead of its third-quarter investor relations call.
