Major Chinese Cryptocurrency Fundraising Platform Halts Operations
A major Chinese cryptocurrency exchange has stopped hosting fundraising of new virtual currencies, also known as “initial coin offerings” (ICOs), as the government looks to tighten oversight of the still-unregulated yet growing sector.
ICOINFO, China’s second-largest ICO exchange by value of funds raised, said in a statement Wednesday that it has suspended all ICO-related activities. The company said it would resume hosting ICOs in accordance with regulators’ specification and policies once they “have clarity from the relevant departments.”
