Cryptocurrency Project is rising in China

The cryptocurrency project is rising in China. The lust for adopting blockchain technology in China has increased since the announcement of President Xi on the adoption of blockchain technology. Now we have seen the restrictive measures taken by the Chinese government which has shut down all the crypto exchanges.

The reason behind this shut down of 173 crypto trading platforms is that the Chinese government wants to move the attention of people towards its stablecoin that would be released soon.

Recently, the Chinese government has shut down a Beijing-based crypto exchange BISS and some members were arrested by the authorities. The Silicon Valley of China named Shenzhen has claimed and identified around 39 crypto companies that were involved in defrauding the customers.

In short, the Chinese government has tightened its grip on the crypto exchanges and has closed all the operating trading platforms in the country.
