Reports that Bank of Japan came up with a rather negative Q&A page concerning cryptocurrencies raised some eye brows, as the central bank raised awareness about crypto risks.

The page, titled “Let’s think about cryptocurrencies!”, listed questions including whether such digital coins could be considered real money, or whether investors could profit from them. The page then noted there is no central bank to back the cryptos, and asked “Shouldn’t we ban something we don’t really understand?”

The page was set up after the country’s finance ministers and central bank governors of the Group of 20 nations last month warned that cryptos could destabilize financial markets.

Elsewhere, Alibaba (NYSE:) sued a Dubai-based firm which allegedly caused confusion by using its trademarked name to raise more than $3.5 million in cryptocurrency known as “Alibabacoins”.
