What is the China narrative and what does it mean for cryptocurrency prices?
Hong Kong’s recent announcement for legalizing crypto trading for its residents fueled a bullish sentiment in the crypto community giving rise to the “China” narrative. The narrative gathered steam over the past few weeks as analysts and crypto influencers tweeted about it and shared watchlists of Chinese coins for traders.
Miles Duetscher, a crypto analyst and trader shared the following list of Chinese coins. The expert believes that the China narrative is here to stay and holders of the tokens can expect further gains until June 2023.
Watchlist of top performing Chinese coins
As seen in the list above, Chinese coins in the top 100 cryptocurrencies by market cap, Filecoin (FIL), VeChain (VET), Neo (NEO) and Conflux (CFX) have yielded 76.45%, 26.54%, 29.50% and 310.15% gains for holders respectively.
The China narrative is the key factor driving the massive price rallies in these tokens, in addition to alpha from Chinese content creators and developments in the respective crypto projects.
Crypto market participants are big on narratives in 2023, after the Artificial Intelligence narrative inspired by ChatGPT, and Metaverse narrative inspired by Meta’s earnings report and its dedication to building crypto’s metaverse, the China narrative has become increasingly popular among traders.
In addition to Hong Kong’s crypto plans, experts on crypto Twitter have noticed that massive liquidity injections by People's Bank of China (PBoC) coincide with the upsurge in crypto market capitalization.
An analyst on crypto Twitter argued that the China easing narrative is real and the central bank ramped up its liquidity injections in February 2023.
