The Chinese authorities continue to struggle with crypto-currencies. They turn their views to the platforms, that allow to trade on the foreign exchanges. This is reported by Bloomberg referring to the source familiar with the situation.
Regulators intend to carry out verification of accounts in Chinese banks and payment systems belonging to individuals and legal entities suspected of organizing trades on foreign crypto exchanges The assets of the owners of these accounts can be blocked, and they themselves can be denied service.
These measures are aimed at further reducing the number of possible options, which may be used by Chinese citizens who want to buy a crypto currency. To circumvent the ban imposed last year, some companies have opened offshore platforms that allow residents of the country to buy crypto-currencies with the help of bank accounts and payment applications. The source does not give specific figures and names of the platforms, but we can assume that we are talking about such exchanges as Huobi and OKEx, which continue to bind sellers and buyers of crypto-currencies
