XRP-trading Bybit to ban Chinese users

Singapore-headquartered Bybit exchange has announced that as of June 15 it will restrict the ability of users from China to trade on its platform.

Customers with Chinese IP addresses will be unable to access market quotes, trading operations, investment tools and more.

This comes as a response to the recent initiative of the Chinese government to crack down on Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies overall, as well as crypto mining.

Huobi and OKEx have already restricted the access of their Chinese customers to the services offered on these platforms.
