Huobi’s BitVC Suspends Bitcoin and Litecoin Withdrawals Service
Following the announcement on March 31 asking clients to convert their fiat asset into bitcoin or litecoin and return margin before 12:00 April 1, BitVC today released a notice on its website suspending bitcoin and litecoin withdrawals service.
The announcement reads:
To strictly obey the law of the People’s Republic of China on anti-money laundering, foreign exchange and other financial regulations, BitVC decided to suspend bitcoin and litecoin withdrawals service from now on.
We apologize for any inconvenience it may cause. Thanks for your understanding and support to BitVC! If you have any questions, please contact our customer service hotline: 4000-685-598
BitVC is a comprehensive digital currency investment and financial management platform, offering leverage trading and Yubibao interest-bearing savings accounts for bitcoin and litecoin.
Last March, Huobi was said to send emails requiring users to provide their personal information along with explanations of the sources of the funds to be withdrawn and their intended withdrawal destinations as a way of complying with PBOC’s strict AML and KYC policies.
I have been living two lives. In one life, I am a news editor of 8btc. I translate news, interview bitcoiners and miners. In the other life, I am an AI bot programmed to .......Forget it! Who is gonna buy this BS! I'm just me, Cindy, nobody else.

Well, glad I got my coins out of there at the first sign of these recent Chinese regulations.
How can they just hold customer funds hostage? Most people trading on this platform are not Chinese and cannot withdraw yuan.
