China’s Saga with Crypto and NFTs
China’s dealings with NFTs and crypto have certainly been up and down. They have gone from allowing them to banning them many times. Previously, in September 2021, the Chinese state banned crypto. Their reasoning was to “curtail financial crime and prevent economic instability”, and made all crypto trades illegal.
Later down the line, China launched its own BSN-DDC. This is basically China’s own blockchain tech. This means that the Chinese state is able to handle the crypto in the country. Only if their systems are used and adopted.
Now, the Chinese social media platform, WeChat has just begun banning accounts that it deems are promoting NFTs. Speaking on the situation, the platform said that it had “recently standardised and rectified public accounts and small programmes for speculation and secondary sales of digital collections”.
