Compared with the 19.7 billion loan balance disclosed as of August 31, only 800 million was reduced in one month.
From the perspective of overdue situation, as of September 30, 2020, there were 426000 overdue transactions, and the current loan balance was 1.523 million, with the project overdue rate of 27.98%; the overdue amount was 8.265 billion yuan, and the disclosed overdue amount rate was 40.39%; and the amount overdue for more than 90 days was 7.12 billion yuan.

In addition, according to industry insiders to the relevant media, the first application for bankruptcy reorganization will not affect the right of the lender, and the lender holds the creditors rights of the borrower. Aiqianjins shareholders applied for bankruptcy reorganization, which may be aimed at paying less money. From the legal point of view, aiqianjin Information Technology Co., Ltd. owes money to a certain creditor, and the creditor applies to the court for bankruptcy reorganization of aiqianjin Information Technology Co., Ltd. After being accepted by the court, the investor (Deng Libin) applied to the peoples court for bankruptcy reorganization. Here we need to pay attention to the basic fact that creditors can only apply for bankruptcy liquidation of the debtor, shareholders (investors) take the initiative to apply to the court for reorganization, which has nothing to do with creditors. At this time, Deng Libin, who applied for bankruptcy reorganization, was not a creditor, but a shareholder who loved money.

The crisis continues, P2P industry accelerates to clear up
The emergence of storm online lending platform not only love money into one.
Recently, Wukong finance, a subsidiary of Jiufu, has also experienced large-scale overdue payment collection, which has triggered heated discussions on social media and received many consumer complaints on the Internet complaint platform. The money due at the end of August has been displayed on October 14. There is no solution to the customer service, just waiting. One Wukong financial investor said.
A few days ago, Fenghuang finance suddenly took off the shelves of financial products and stopped cashing principal and interest to lenders, which caused panic among borrowers; before that, platforms such as group loan network and renrenrenjucai also had centralized cashing difficulties. In recent years, with the regulatory attention to the risk of Internet Finance and online lending, P2P industry has accelerated to clear up, and there are many head platforms that have been popular for a time.
On October 22, at the annual meeting of the 2020 Financial Street Forum, Liang Tao, vice chairman of the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission, said that the actual number of P2P and online lending institutions in China had dropped from 5000 during the peak period to 6 at the end of September, and the scale of borrowing and lending and the number of participants declined for 27 consecutive months.

The number of online lending institutions, loan scale and number of participants declined for 26 consecutive months.
Liao Zhiming, an analyst at Tianfeng securities, said in the research paper that the rapidly deteriorating asset quality of P2P industry reflects the nature of the industry: targeting the long tail population and covering high risks with high returns. Affected by the impact of the epidemic and the downward trend of credit cycle, the lag of loan risk exposure in P2P industry will make the situation worse afterwards.
