China has shut down access to the Binance cryptocurrency exchange
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. 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.
