Crypto Industry News:
Just days after the world's most populous nation blocked social media influencer crypto accounts, all Chinese search engines stopped showing search results for Binance, Huobi, and OKEx.
According to a Chinese journalist using the pseudonym Wu Blockchain, local search engines (such as Baidu and Sogou) blocked queries for three of the most popular digital asset trading platforms. These are Binance, Huobi, and OKEx.
The journalist also noted that the most popular social media platforms, such as Weibo and Zhihu, did the same. Users are unable to search for the three exchanges in either Chinese or English. While the country has taken action against the cryptocurrency industry on numerous occasions recently, it appears to be Baidu's first such initiative.
The situation takes place just a few days after Weibo blocked the accounts of famous figures related to the cryptocurrency industry.

Ethereum has lost more than 50% of the recent gains from the lows of March 2020 and now is currently in the counter-trend corrective cycle. The next long-term target for bears is seen at the level of $1,728 (61% Fibonacci retracement of the last wave up) and $1,420 ( January 2018 swing high). The up trend is resumed when the level of min. $3,000 is clearly violated.
