China's ChiNext Market is Crashing - Down 8% Today

China's ChiNext Market is a tech-focused index akin to Nasdaq. The Shenzhen based index is currently crumbling: down nearly 8% today and more than 27% over the last three weeks.

ChiNext in Free Fall

 

The ChiNext market has suffered tremendous losses recently. According to Reuters, the index is crumbling because of policy concerns.

As investors flock to get their money out of the tumbling stock market, how many of them will elect to convert their fiat to bitcoin?
