WeChat is a Chinese social media platform that has over 1 bln users in the country. The platform has been developed by Tencent.
WeChat has recently blocked a good number of blockchain related and cryptocurrency related accounts, as local sources inform.
WeChat representatives explain, that some accounts were blocked because they were suspected in ICO offering and cryptocurrency trading, which is the violation against the law and the Terms and Policies of the company. That’s why, the company officials explain, they had to block permanently the accounts and delete all the content.
However, not only individual users, but even big corporations, such as Deepchain, CoinDaily and some others were affected. CoinDaily claims, for example, that its channels had over 100,000 subscribers, and some blocked websites were among the most influential accounts in the platform.
