Reporters noted that , Affected by the event of unable to log in and prohibit currency withdrawal , at present AOFEX The price of platform currency plummeted .

Regarding this , Su Xiaorui says , Virtual currency exchanges set up overseas pass C2C The model bypasses regulation , The small-scale participation of individual investors is difficult to monitor and identify through scientific and technological means , Therefore, individual investors should be aware that such acts are illegal financial activities that deviate from regulation , Very high risk . As far as the present situation is concerned , Exchange users are generally difficult to protect their rights , In particular, some exchanges are set up overseas and it is difficult to locate the true identity of their actual controllers or operators .

“ Than defending rights after the incident , Investors should pay more attention to prevention in advance , Keep away from currency related businesses in advance .” Su Xiaorui stressed that .

Cryptocurrency exchange clearing countdown

Under strong domestic supervision , since 2021 year 10 Since the month , Several cryptocurrency exchanges disclosed the clearing plan , According to the 《 Chinese times 》 Reporters do not complete statistics , More than 20 exchanges have announced their withdrawal from the Chinese market , Or just shut down . Fire money 、 Currency security 、MEXC、Kucoin、Bitget And other exchanges have announced that they will 12 month 31 Recently completed the clearance of Chinese users .

Chen Jiaxiang, researcher of the Institute of currency of Renmin University 《 Chinese times 》 The reporter said , at present , The cryptocurrency industry has no legal status in China , All links in the production and circulation of tokens other than the digital currency of the people's Bank of China are illegal . Besides , To maintain social stability 、 Preventing financial risks , In recent years, the regulatory authorities have strengthened the strength and accuracy of anti money laundering . Three in one , The cryptocurrency exchange was expelled from the original gray area .

Chen Jia believes , This illegal attribute leads to higher and higher operating costs of the whole industry , Investment behavior is more short-term . As a capital intensive industry , The high cost and short-term of investment generally have two results , One is the high pursuit of short-term returns , The other is to quickly realize the assets held .

Chen Jia said , at present , Most of the servers in the currency exchange are overseas , Part of it is located in Southeast Asia with weak supervision , Some are located in countries and regions that are open to encrypted assets or currencies . Once there is a currency run, domestic investors need to protect their rights across borders , In the past two years when the epidemic situation has been changing, the difficulty can be imagined ; What's more, individual investors are the weak side of information in the face of currency .

“ In the case of money running in the early stage , Few people walk away . The only way to avoid gambling losses is not to participate in gambling , That is what the people's Bank of China has repeatedly stressed ‘ Long time bet will lose ’.” Chen Jia stressed .

Reporters noted that , In the process of clearing out mainland users by the exchange , Breed a new service , Some enterprises provide overseas company registration services to mainland users , What's more, they directly provide overseas identity , To meet customers' demand for money speculation .

The customer service staff told our reporter , Recently, many people have come to inquire about the registration of overseas companies , The purpose is to open an institutional account in the exchange and continue to invest in cryptocurrency . The current fee for registering a company in the UK is 1500 element / year , You only need to provide your ID card or passport .

Regarding this , Chen Jia said , Due to regulatory differences , International companies engaged in encrypted assets or currency services are growing rapidly abroad , Relevant enterprises provide services to Chinese domestic investors , Generally, domestic regulation should be bypassed , Provide virtual identity and invest in the encryption asset industry . For domestic investors , First , This kind of investment is illegal ; secondly , Its income cannot be obtained by legal means , It can only be realized through illegal entry and exit channels again , This already belongs to the anti money laundering category of the people's Bank of China , Involving crime . Last , These investment behaviors pose severe challenges to national sovereignty and macro financial stability . The state has issued a series of laws and regulations to regulate individual investment behavior , The future regulatory trend will be more accurate and effective .

In Chen Jia's opinion , Even in North America, where the regulation of the encryption asset industry is relatively loose , The legitimacy of cryptocurrency is also unrecognized , Domestic consumers and investors must have a clear understanding , Keep in mind that the risks and benefits of financial products must match .

“ The trading of the currency exchange belongs to a new mode of ultra-high frequency and lack of supervision , At present, there is no financial asset trading model that can match it . Unless investors are proficient in the industry for many years and have strong learning ability and development strength , Otherwise, the core of currency exchange trading seen by the public is far beyond the understanding ability of individual investors .” Chen Jia said .
