The fundraising amount for internet finance platforms, including online lending platforms, cryptocurrency mining firms and blockchain-based payment system operators, dropped to 2.174 billion yuan (US$330 million) in September, representing a 44 per cent and 55 per cent drop respectively from August’s 3.86 billion yuan and July’s 4.85 billion yuan, according to latest estimates by Online Lending House, one of China’s largest internet financing data sites.

The financing deals for virtual currency-related start-ups had occurred before the Chinese authorities launched a crackdown on domestic trading in virtual currency in early September.
