China has shut down access to the Binance cryptocurrency exchange
Since July 8, Chinese citizens have been denied access to the exchange Binance. Now, to access it, it is necessary to use a VPN.
As reported in his Twitter journalist Colin Wu:
On the evening of July 8, Beijing time, many users found that the Binance APP appear to be blocked in China and must use a VPN to log in.
This can be checked at chinafirewalltest.com, a service that tests sites for blocking in China. This is a publication from platform cryptodefix.com. Also popular Chinese search engines, Baidu and Sogou, have blocked links to exchange sites since June 2021: Binance, Huobi and OKEx.
This was due to a statement by Vice Premier Liu He of the State Council of China in May, in which he called for stricter regulation of mining and cryptocurrency trading in China. As a result, bans on cryptocurrency mining were introduced in four provinces.
Binance is the leading cryptocurrency exchange system.
