More crypto exchanges are facing pressure in China

Colin Wu has tweeted that Coinex (the holder of the 47 spot, according to the CoinMarketCap scale) has stated that by October 31 it will close all accounts of its users in mainland China and will close access to the platform via Chinese phone numbers.

The closure of Chinese accounts will be completed by October 31, 16.00 Beijing time.

Another crypto trading venue that is closing down completely is Renrenbit founded by Chinese “OTC king” Zhao Dong. The company has announced that it will be closed by October 30 and the native token of the exchange, RRB, will be bought from users with USDT.

Huobi drops all of its users in mainland China

Earlier this week, U.Today reported that the largest crypto trader in China, Huobi, is banning access to its products to all users in the mainland area of the country. Prior to that, the exchange spread the word that it had stopped onboarding new users from that region.

Many crypto exchanges at the moment are either closing down completely or withdrawing their services from mainland China due to the recent China crypto ban forced by the Chinese Central bank and the Communist Party authorities on digital currency transactions and cryptocurrency miners.

Centribillionaire Elon Musk has recently opined that crypto is threatening the power of the China’s Communist Party, hence the tightening of the crypto regulation policies.
