MEXC Exchange Imposes KYC Restrictions on Chinese Users

A cryptocurrency exchange, MEXC, is reportedly implementing restrictions for mainland China users who have not completed Know Your Customer (KYC) verification, according to Chinese blockchain journalist Colin Wu.

The motive behind this move is yet unknown, so users are forced to close open orders and withdraw funds to other exchanges. MEXC has not issued any official statement regarding the issue.
