On June 30, Didi Chuxing quietly went to the U.S. to go public in spite of the persuasion of the Chinese Communist Party, but it was severely punished on July 2. The Cyberspace Administration of the Communist Party of China launched a cyber security review of Didi Travel, including the removal of 25 Didi apps and the prohibition of new users from registering, which almost cut off Didi’s source of revenue.

On July 16, the Cyberspace Administration of the Communist Party of China, together with the Ministry of Public Security, the Ministry of National Security, the Ministry of Natural Resources, the Ministry of Transport, the State Administration of Taxation, and the State Administration of Market Supervision, conducted a cyber security review on Didi Chuxing.

A series of heavy blows by the authorities caused Didi’s share price to plummet, and the share price has been cut in just over two months. On September 20, Didi’s closing price on US stocks was 7.75 US dollars, down 6.63%.

The pro-communist Hong Kong media “South China Morning Post” quoted four people familiar with the matter as saying on July 9 that the official move to list Didi in the United States was characterized as a violation of yang and yin, and Didi “irritated some people.”

A senior media person, Tang Hao, previously analyzed that Didi had funds from many powerful families such as Jiang faction. Didi was accused of “violating the power of the yin”, which is tantamount to challenging Xi Jinping’s authority. The Didi incident detonated the Chinese Communist Party’s top officials to fight more intensely.
