A top law representative and council member of the People’s Bank of China recently spoke publicly that it is actually legal to own Bitcoin and do P2P trading in China.
The Chinese government ban to Bitcoin as well as the moves they take to combat its use has been widely known. That said, the real-life implementations of the ban have been told differently by many people.
