In February 2018, Alipay was pressured to eliminate cryptocurrency traders from its network indirectly, when the government of China asked all banks and financial service providers to ban Bitcoin trading accounts.

"Red Li, the co-founder of 8Btc, a popular China-based community of crypto and blockchain enthusiasts, confirmed this restriction when he posted on his Twitter account, "#alipay is blocking accounts involved in bitcoin otc trading".

As part of an ongoing country-wide crackdown, China's two largest technology companies, Tencent (TCEHY) and Alibaba (BABA), have reportedly banned cryptocurrency transactions on WeChat Pay and Ant Financial's Alipay, respectively. Furthermore, the government body is working out the strategy to block access to 124 exchanges operating from overseas.

It will remind them to "not be deceived by various false propaganda", recognize the risk of cryptocurrency transactions and avoid risk and financial losses.
