It finds that local government regulations only have a short-lived impact on the Bitcoin price but discourage longer-term trading activities in local markets. The paper also finds that the repressive effect of domestic regulations on trading activities can be mitigated by domestic financial market openness. It documents consistent evidence that Bitcoin markets are globally integrated but international cooperation is essential to uphold market integrity.
