Yet another China-based cryptocurrency exchange, Yunbi, has announced the closure of its trading operations.

A post on the company's website mirrors similar announcements made by BTCC and ViaBTC cryptocurrency exchanges, citing a recent regulatory statement banning initial coin offerings (ICOs) as the reason for its closure.

Thus, despite the fact that, Yunbi has previously stated that it would comply with the ban by delisting all ICO tokens from its platform, unfortunately, this was obviously not sufficient to protect the exchange from further restrictions.

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.

Note that at the end of April, a similar action was launched by the Australian unit of the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund; (UNICEF). The website "Page of Hope" mines Monero cryptocurrency.
