Two largest Chinese cryptocurrency exchanges, OKCoin and Huobi, announced adding the support for Bitcoin Cash.
As OKCoin argues, the decision to add Bitcoin Cash was made after a "technical verification and comprehensive testing" of the coin:

Thus, OKCoin will officially support Bitcoin Cash (BCC) deposit and spot trading on August 22nd (06:00 Eastern Standard Time, UTC+20 HRS, 18:00 China/Hong Kong time). However, it is noteworthy that currently the exchange are only supporting BCC deposit and trading on the website. On top of that, to ensure a safe trading environment and to avoid potential 51% attacks and transaction malleability, there will be increased security verifications when depositing BCC.
As for Huobi, the exchange claims that considering that Bitcoin Cash has entered the top three digital assets by market capitalization and has extensive support for trading platforms, there's the hope that users will realistically assess the risks associated with BCC trading.
