CoinEx Announces Termination of Services in Mainland China, Crackdown Escalated?

The China-based Cryptocurrency exchange CoinEx announced that it will exist from the Chinese market and no longer provide services for users in Mainland China after over a year of operation within the territory. The announcement on its website released on March 11 reads that the exchange chose to terminate services in Mainland China as compliance with China’s regulations and regulatory requirements of central authority. Users within the territory are required to withdraw their crypto assets before March 29 (UTC). CoinEx was launched by one of bitcoin’s largest mining pools ViaBTC in December 2017. With its operator a strong supporter of Bitcoin Cash (BCH), the exchange rose as a platform providing only BCH-priced trading pairs in its early days. The exchange seems to mainly focus on Southeast Asia market with language support including English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Indonesian and Russian. According to its official website, CoinEx is providing global trading services in nearly 100 countries/regions. The decision of the exchange, occurred at a special timing when the country’s biggest political event is ongoing and Consumer Rights Day is around the corner, raised concerns from some cautious Chinese crypto investors. Some worry that the crackdown on crypto trading offered by exchanges may be escalated again in the country. While prior to it, some smaller exchanges including Italian-based BitGrail and Ukraine-based Liquid have shut down in early 2019. With reduced liquidity on these small exchanges, traders are abandoning them for bigger ones. Smaller exchanges such as CoinEx, barely making enough to keep afloat, have to terminate their services or cut off dead branches in a sluggish market. But what worries users more is that the exchange makes no statement about its future plan and markets outside Mainland China. Some alert that it is a signal that the exchange may not exist in near future. Coinex fucking never answer questions. You just cant say we will be no longer in chine market. What will happen in future you have to explain that too. You just cheat on all of users who trust #coinex market. I think #CoinEx wont be exist in near future — nuri (@nurisoylemez) March 11, 2019 As of press time, the exchange is ranked 118th among global crypto exchanges by trading volume, in the last 24 hours it has seen over $1,000,000 in trading executed.

ViaBTC, CoinEX Founder Haipo Yang Officially Released from Chinese Prison After Months of Rumors

Haipo Yang is responsible for founding both CoinEX and ViaBTC, but his time in the media lately has been discussing him for another reason. He seemed to disappear off the radar several months ago, leading many people to speculate what became of him. However, CoinSpice discovered that he has been arrested and imprisoned in China for at least two and a half months. The founder was just released from the prison this morning. The last time anyone had actually heard from Haipo Yang was in October last year, though the news that he was imprisoned was originally broken by Jane Wang. At the time, the reports that he was arrested were denied, and the only information for anyone in the industry to go off of was the vague tweets and the lack of transactions on CoinEX. So far, there is not much certainty about the reasons for the arrest, detainment, or even the release. In early November, Ms. Wang said, “The rumor first appeared in a private WeChat group called ‘Real China Power’ by Chinese blockchain executive Elly Zhang (@cryptovenus), saying that Mr. Haipo Yang had been arrested and was under control at Nantou Police Station in Shenzhen.” Additional speculation about the arrest says that a pending initial coin offering (ICO) could’ve been brought to the attention of the authorities. This would explain the need to question Yang about the actions in China, considering their ban against crypto activities, apart from a few miniscule exceptions. Now, it looks like Yang’s first court of action is to become active on Twitter again. So far, the only thing he has posted is a reposted tweet from Roger Ver, which links to a CoinSpice article titled, “Lightning Network Vs. Bitcoin Cash: Onboarding, Spending, Reliability.”

Is CoinEx And ViaBTC CEO Haipo Yang Under Arrest In China? Radio Silence Sparks New Fears

A member of the Chinese internet community has reported that, Haipo Yang, the founder of both ViaBTC and CoinEx has been subject to arrest on October 30th. Later on, the CoinEx Telegram group administrator responded directly to these allegations, claiming that they were ‘purely fictitious'. It was during that evening, however, that Haipo Yang's Twitter account forwarded the news and laconically commented ‘interesting'. A few days later, a number of CoinEx users revealed that they were having issues with withdrawing tokens from their accounts, with some token withdrawals not being received for more than 24 hours. While Yang's Twitter account replied to the allegation, there has been no legitimate response from either of these organizations, we he arrested? According to updates from November, there have been confirmations that CoinEx is still processing BTC withdrawals and users are still receiving them. BCH withdrawals, on the other hand, have been seeing an increased level of slowing and stalling. Yang Disappears – Arrest Rumors Spread Where did this rumor first emerge? It happened on a private WeChat group called ‘Real China Power' which was hosted by the Chinese blockchain executive Elly Zhang. Zhang stated that Mr. Haipo Yang had since been arrested and was under the jurisdiction of the Nantou Police Station in Shenzhen. The chat was then screenshotted by Bitcoin Gold founder Jack Liao — who is known to have long-term personal and business issues with Yang and Bitmain CEO Jihan Wu. Liao made sure to post the screenshot on his Weibo and WeChat moment, and soon thereafter, it began to rapidly spread within the Chinese crypto community. Link To ICO Plans? Sometime in October 2018, a user of Sina Weibo alleged that someone had reported CoinEx to the Shenzhen financial office, and mentioned that the investigation could be related to the ICO of both ViaBTC and CoinEx, Yang being the CEO of both organizations. Along with this, there are reportedly screenshots of a conversation in the CoinEx internal group, which claimed that it wouldn't be illegal to perform an ICO ‘under the table'. Haipo Yang’s companies are established in China, and he also holds a Chinese passport. It’s widely known that ICO activity has been banned in China since September 2017. source: Sina Weibo No Comment From The ShenZhen Police Force In order to try and confirm a number of these rumors, individuals have attempted to contact the Nantou police station in Shenzhen. The results were not exactly what journalists were hoping to hear, however, as a representative said that they would not disclose any private information unless the party's family members inquired, or were requested to do so by their immediate superior. Attempts to communicate directly with Yang and Sara Ouyang, the COO of ViaBTC have proven useless, as their phones were switched off. As a result, there's no direct way to get in touch with those parties directly involved in this affair, meaning that there's no way to effectively confirm or deny any of the rumors or outstanding allegations, whatever they may be. The silence, however, could also be a sign — in most cases like this, an exchange would likely want to reassure users as soon as possible that all was well.
