More About BTCC

BTCC, formally known as BTC China, was the first bitcoin exchange in the People‘s Republic. It was founded by entrepreneur Bobby Lee in 2011. Three years later, in 2014, the platform had become the world’s second largest exchange by bitcoin trading volume. BTC China shut down amidst a crackdown by Chinese authorities in September 2017, when the central bank banned local exchanges from trading cryptocurrencies with the national fiat, the yuan.

BTCC, however, continued to operate its mining pool, which currently controls 2% of the bitcoin core hashrate, and its crypto wallet, Mobi. In January this year, the crypto company announced its acquisition by a Hong Kong based investment fund. At the time, BTCC said it was shifting focus to international markets.
