Cryptocurrency exchanges operating illegally in one city in China will face the wrath of a joint government effort to oust them, reports claim. On Nov. 22, authorities in Shenzhen have identified a total of 39 exchanges falling foul of China's cryptocurrency trading ban, according to local news outlet Sanyan Finance.
The operation reportedly included participation from China's central bank, the People's Bank of China, the Economic Investigation Bureau of the Municipal Public Security Bureau and the Municipal Communications Administration. It remains unknown what consequences the exchanges will face, with Sanyan highlighting a desire to crack down on liquidity. "It is reported that the action will focus on three activities: first, providing virtual currency trading services or opening virtual currency trading places in China; second, providing service channels for overseas virtual currency trading places, including services such as drainage and agency trading; Sell ??tokens in various names, raise funds for investors or virtual currencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum." Cointelegraph previously noted the existence of the Shenzhen plans, which also target entities beyond the exchange sector.
As Cointelegraph reported, China continues to present a varied stance on cryptocurrency.
