Information from CoinGecko said that they did not decide to cut China’s IP, so perhaps the country’s Internet censorship agency has made this move. .

Here we can also see that China is actively suppressing the cryptocurrency market from trading activities to limiting market information exposure to citizen.

Currently, crypto communities in China have shared a way to bypass firewalls on activity groups that is routing through VPN.

In addition to avoid being touched by the authorities, groups operating on WECHAT about cryptocurrencies have changed their names or moved communities to active Telegram. In their view, the change during this time will make discussions and activities safer.
