Ongoing crypto pressures in China are related to perception

It is still light to call this a massacre.

Chinese stocks, which were listed in the US on July 23, collapsed as Beijing issued new regulations to combat educational technology companies that offer services such as tutoring.

In July, the situation worsened when Beijing Didi, a Chinese Uber, stopped registering new customers and threatened to remove its app from app stores. It comes two days after the company went public in the United States.

Really bad things to clean up. Here” educational technology ” companies suffer
