According to incoming reports, all the existing crypto-exchange markets in China will be closed until the end of this month.

At the time of publication of official statements by the regulatory authorities of China was not received, but Twitter-account Ethereum Classic China (@ETCChina) laid out one of the documents, which, presumably, contains an appropriate order.

In addition, the Washington Post reporter Luna Lin wrote that until the end of today the stock exchanges OKCoin and Huobi will have to decide on the timing of the termination of exchange trading. Originally, Luna Lin published a tweet saying that OKCoin and Huobi were ordered to stop trading until the end of today, but then clarified that "decide by the end of today when they would stop trading."

Luna Lin added that the information is confirmed by the Chinese edition of Security News and also published a copy of the document that ETCChina previously laid out. The ETCC added a few details:

  1. All exchanges must submit a plan by September 20, according to which the users' funds will be withdrawn
  2. Also, by the specified date, exchanges must have a bank account on which users' funds will be stored
  3. Until 24:00 on September 15, exchanges must make statements in which the date of termination of trading will be indicated. Also from today, registration of new users should be stopped.

Also, a statement from yunbi released. It will close trading services on Sept. 20th.

Earlier today, the ViaBTC exchange announced its closure on September 30. On Thursday, a similar decision was made by the BTCC, one of the largest cryptoexcnhe in China.

Social platform for petitions Change.org announced the launch of a screensaver that mines Monero on users' computers. All tokens will be transferred to the charity fund of Change.org. This is reported by Coindesk.

This initiative was launched in partnership with the marketing agency Tracelocke Brazil.

Representatives of Change.org report that the screensaver will consume resources only when users do not use the computer. According to their calculations, if 10 thousand computers will run the screensaver for 12 hours a day, the charity fund will be transferred $ 10 thousand monthly.

At the moment the program is available only for Windows users and the platform did not report on the release plans for the version for macOS.
