EOS ICO, the blockchain operating system for commercial scale decentralized applications, announces its ban for the Chinese investors in response to China’s ICO ban.

As reported by the company, now the Chinese people are strictly prohibited and restricted from using the EOS Smart Contract and/or purchasing EOS Tokens:

Chinese persons are strictly prohibited and restricted from using the EOS Smart Contract and/or purchasing EOS Tokens. If a Chinese person uses the EOS Smart Contract and/or purchases EOS Tokens, such person has done so and entered into the EOS Token Purchase Agreement on an unlawful, unauthorized and fraudulent basis and such agreement will be null and void.

Probably, the Chinese investors will have an opportunity to take the same measures to circumvent the ban. However, China has already begun cracking down on VPN providers.

Following the trial court of the city of Thessaloniki, the Greek Areopagus decided to extradite Alexander Vinnik, suspected of laundering $ 4 billion through the BTC-e cryptocurrency exchange, to France. Thus, the appeal of Russian lawyers was rejected, reports TASS referring to the chairman of the court Angelique Aliferopoul.

After the announcement of the verdict, Alexander Vinnik declared that he would continue the hunger strike against the arbitrary rule of the Greek authorities, which began in mid-November.

I have been starving for 24 days. Yesterday I was weighed; according to the documents, I lost 8 kg. But they did not immediately begin to weigh me, only on the third day. So I lost 9 kg. If I'll be extradited to Moscow, I will stop starving.
