BTCC, formerly known as BTC China, had to suspend its work in China, as the country’s supervisory authorities actually recognized the centralized trade in crypto-currencies on the exchanges as illegal. For today the company develops several new directions of rendered services: among them a pool for the production of crypto-currency, a purse for tokens and a stock exchange, oriented to work with the fiat dollar and bitcoin.
The share of BTCC Pool now accounts for about a percent of the hash-capacity of the entire bitcoin production network, and at the peak of growth, this figure was just over three percent.
