Jinse asserts that the crackdown on exchanges was motivated by “small platform[s]… not seriously implement[ing] anti-money laundering and KYC policy” requirements. The publication also cites the decision to allow China’s major cryptocurrency exchanges to reopen following PBOC investigations, implying that the recent crackdown on cryptocurrency exchanges is temporary, and should not be interpreted as a general prohibition on cryptocurrency.
