In late 2017, rumours of a government-enforced ban on cryptocurrency trading in China was realized. Prominent Chinese exchanges such as Huobi and OKCoin were forced to close their operations in mainland China and moved overseas to neighbouring countries. To prevent Chinese citizens from continuing to access these cryptocurrency exchanges, the Great Firewall began blocking access to these websites, forcing traders to use VPNs to circumvent the censorship.

As of 2018, roughly 1/3 of global cryptocurrency exchanges are blocked in China. A list of cryptocurrency exchanges and their access status in China can be found below:
