One of the biggest cryptocurrency exchanges in China, BTCChina announced that he would stop the auction by 30 September. Representatives of BTCChina said that he made this decision after “careful consideration of the decision of Chinese regulators, released on 4 September.”
On September 14, the exchange stopped registering new users. Other products BTCChina, such as BTCC Pool will continue to function normally.
