According to Dovey Wan of Primitive Ventures, GXChain, one of the biggest ICO projects of 2017, is no longer in business. On Sept. 11, it was shut down by the Chinese police.

Wan adds that she has no idea why this particular ICO drew the ire of Chinese authorities since there is plenty of blatant cryptocurrency scams that are still active. She insists that GXChain was one of the few legitimate companies in the space.

GXChain was positioned as a fundamental Blockchain for global data, which includes credit card history. Wan suggests that it could be the reason why the police have put the breaks on this ICO given that it’s “a very sensitive topic” in China.

According to CoinMarketCap data, GXChain (GXC) is currently sitting at 88th place with its price tanking by 11 percent over the last 24 hours. Back in January 2018, its market cap was nearing $600 mln.
