SHANGHAI Jan 11 Chinese bitcoin exchange OKCoin
said its platform was operating normally and it was working with
authorities after China's central bank launched an inspection of
it and other exchanges on Wednesday.
"The operating situation on OKCoin's platform is currently
normal," a spokeswoman told Reuters.
The checks on bitcoin exchanges in Beijing and Shanghai,
also including BTCC and Huobi, were to look into possible market
manipulation, money laundering, unauthorised financing and other
issues, the People's Bank of China said.
