The People's Bank of China issued a banning order for the initial offers of coins (ICO) in the country. This is reported by Silicon Angle with reference to the local edition of Caixin.

The prohibition concerns not only the new initial coin offering. In addition, organizations and individuals who have already conducted an ICO by now will have to return funds to investors.

The decision to ban the ICO came into force last weekend. As a consequence, the large-scale conference on the ICO, which was to be held on September 2 in Beijing, was canceled. Also, the authorities warned all major trading platforms about the official ban of ICO as "illegal financial activity." 

The market reaction was not long in coming.
