Following some stern warnings from a few major trade associations and regulators in China, two prominent exchanges, Huobi and Okex, have stopped offering services to Chinese residents. After the two exchanges halted specific services to residents of mainland China, two bitcoin mining operations have also abandoned the country on Monday. Btc.top and Hashcow have suspended services over “regulatory risks.â€

Crypto Firms Are Abandoning China

Two mining operations have revealed specific services have been suspended for residents living in mainland China. The news follows the recent announcement from Huobi and Okex when the firms announced this weekend that specific services would be halted for Chinese citizens. There’s been a flurry of government announcements stemming from China and the first warning was published on May 19.

A Reuters report claimed at the time that “China has banned financial institutions and payment companies from providing services related to cryptocurrency transactions, and warned investors against speculative crypto trading.†However, the report was quickly dismissed as fear, doubt, and uncertainty (FUD) by the greater crypto community. A few days later, more reports of Chinese officials discussing monitoring bitcoin mining were published by a variety of publications.

Then this weekend, the two exchanges Huobi and Okex ceased offering services to customers in mainland China. Huobi has ended specific mining services like selling mining rigs and also cloud-hosting operations to Chinese residents. Okex has “stopped trading platform currency with RMB,†according to the local reporter Colin ‘Wu’ Blockchain. Following the announcements from Okex and Huobi, bitcoin (BTC) prices started to show some recovery.

Btc.top and Hashcow Suspend Services to Chinese Residents, Rumors of ‘Cheap’ Mining Rigs Begin to Surface

Now two mining operations have revealed ceasing services to Chinese residents as well. Btc.top, a large mining pool that commands 1.7% of the global hashrate, detailed that it has “suspended its China business citing regulatory risks.†In a similar instance, the mining operation Hashcow also detailed that the firm would stop purchasing mining devices.

Since the initial bitcoin mining warning on May 21, the overall BTC hashrate has declined. At the time of publication, the hashrate is around 140 exahash per second (EH/s), after it was riding above the 158 EH/s zone 24 hours earlier. No other mining operations have made any announcements about ceasing operations in China besides Btc.top and Hashcow’s recent statements.

Meanwhile, Primitive Ventures’ founding partner Dovey Wan and Bixen’s Mustafa Yilham have been speaking on the regulatory crackdown situation in China.

“In [the] past 48 hours,†Yilham tweeted. “Chinese miners already started to accelerate [the] migrating process to other countries. There will also be large quantities of Bitcoin mining machines available for sales.â€
