Due to allegations of probable censorship, Chinese users are currently unable to search for prominent crypto exchanges on the country's Internet services.
Keyword searches for online trading platforms like Binance, OKEx, and Huobi on popular Internet services like Baidu, Sogo, Zhihu, and Weibo turn up nothing. The likely blockade was first reported by other media outlets, including CoinDesk.
The Chinese government has recently escalated its regulatory assault on cryptocurrency mining and trade, contributing to Bitcoin's 45 percent drop since April's peak.
The exchanges that appear to be impacted are some of the most well-known in the digital-asset sector, with Asian users among the first to adopt. According to CoinMarketCap.com, a site owned by Binance, Binance is the world's largest crypto platform, with $30 billion in trading activity in the last 24 hours.
Since 2017, the Chinese government has tightened cryptocurrency laws in an effort to curb capital outflows and prevent speculative bubbles. According to data tracker Chainalysis, Chinese Bitcoin investors gained $1.1 billion in realised gains last year, trailing only those in the United States.
