The banned public accounts are now required to provide a certificate of cooperation with a blockchain company that has been registered and approved by the Cyberspace Administration of China. However, there are some accounts that have been banned over fraud suspicions.

The mini programs on the app are now only supporting the display of virtual collections and first-level gifts.

China, a strong critic of crypto ecosystem

China has been a strong critic of cryptocurrencies and NFTs. Last year it made it to the list of the countries which have banned Virtual Digital Assets and their mining. The government cited high electricity consumption and increased environmental pollution as reasons supporting the ban. Since then tech giants in the country have been riding a wave of fear in dealing with digital assets.
