Here's Who China's Bitcoin Exchange Ban Reportedly Won't Affect”

The decision will apply only to online trading and not to over-the-counter transactions.

The value of bitcoin will be scrutinised by investors around the world after the cryptocurrency plunged by more than 7 per cent on Friday amid rumours that China is planning to shut local exchanges.
