Chinese messenger WeChat has blocked cryptocurrency media accounts
Blockchain and crypto media accounts on Tencent’s Chinese messenger WeChat were suddenly blocked on Tuesday. Writes about it CoinDesk citing local media.
Chinese financial news source Lanjiner was the first to report the problem, highlighting the unavailability of an account for Node Capital-sponsored crypto media Jinse and Deepchain, a site backed by multiple token funds..
Currently, articles previously posted to the Jinse account are unavailable, and instead, text is displayed indicating that it has been blocked.
“In connection with user complaints and after examining the problem, the platform found that the account violates the“ Time requirements for the development and management of public information dissemination services in instant messaging tools ”, and therefore all its content was blocked. Using your account is prohibited, “the message says..
The same message is displayed on Deepchain, Huobi News and CoinDaily accounts..
Time requirements for the development and management of public information dissemination services in instant messaging tools were developed by the China Cyberspace Authority and came into force on August 7.
One of the rules prescribed in them allows you to block accounts if they violate the requirements of current legislation.
“Users of instant messaging tools in public information dissemination services must comply with the requirements of current legislation. For example, if users of the instant messaging service violate the terms of the agreement, the provider of the instant messaging service should take action such as warning, restricting, suspending and closing the account, while maintaining the appropriate records and reporting this to the responsible services, “the policy says.
In March of this year, the Chinese government publication People’s Daily directly criticized the cryptocurrency media, claiming that they were facilitating manipulation of the cryptocurrency market. Jun Du, founder and CEO of Huobi exchange, was then called a “classic example” of the problems in the Chinese blockchain media ecosystem..
