Bitcoin
is trading down 5.8% at $3,656 a coin on Thursday amid mounting reports of a crackdown on the digital coin by Chinese regulators. 


Reports last week that Chinese regulators would require exchanges to voluntary shut bitcoin trading
triggered a sell-off of nearly $1,000, bringing the price of the cryptocurrency below $3,000 for the first time in over a month. Within hours, however, bitcoin recouped most of those losses.

Many bitcoin enthusiasts don't view the crackdown as a significant problem
. Josh Olszwicz, a bitcoin trader, told Business Insider the news out of China won't have a longterm impact on bitcoin because it doesn't affect the cryptocurrency's blockchain, the underpinning technology of the coin. 

"If it doesn't affect the protocol, then it's not a real problem," he told Business Insider.
