Along with the Chinese search engines, the Chinese analog of Twitter, Weibo has blocked the search results related to these crypto exchanges. The recent ban on search results can be considered as the continuation of the already imposed ban on cryptocurrencies in China that was recently resumed.

It can strongly be witnessed that the attitude of China towards decentralized cryptocurrency trading and crypto exchanges is getting even more strict.
