BEIJING (Reuters) - China's central bank issued a warning on Friday on the risks of illegal fund-raising by companies marketing virtual currencies and blockchain technology.

In a post on its website, the People's Bank of China said those so-called "financial innovation" activities are akin to ponzi schemes, adding that people should hold a rational attitude towards blockchain rather than put blind trust in it.
