Exchanges are either leaving China or closing down
As reported by U.Today, the suspension of registration for new mainland China users was first announced a week ago – on September 25. The following day, Huobi stated it would be withdrawing from that region completely, following the new tight crypto regulations imposed recently by the Chinese government.
Several local crypto exchanges are following the suit – Binance has temporarily halted opening accounts for newly registered users, CoinEx is doing the same, Renrenbit that belongs to the China’s “OTC king” Zhao Dong, closes down completely.
