In many cases, the alleged raid on the blockchain seemed dubious at best, despite many companies seeing a dramatic volatility in the price of their shares, supported by news on the adoption of blockchain.
Securities Daily, one of the Chinese media, estimated that 80 companies listed on stock exchanges claim to include DLT in their business model. Of the 80 companies, 56 saw price increases, putting the blockchain among the few sectors to have good results in the two cities.
The data produced by Hithink Flush Information Network indicated that 70 of the 80 blockchain shares saw price movements that reached the daily limit of 10% price volatility during 2018, seven of which exceeded the limit more than 10 times this year.

Two thirds of the examinations took place in the first quarter of 2018.
According to Sina, the investigation of the exchanges mainly sought to ascertain "the specific model of blockchain activities, including application scenarios and profit models" and potential "operational risks" that could derive from the adoption of the DLT.
When asked to demonstrate the results of their blockchain operations, it is said that companies use the words "exploration" and "research" more frequently, with 13 of the 23 companies suspected of trying to associate with the blockchain just to drive speculation. while failing to try DLT applications.
