China's WeChat Suspends NFT Activity

China has been upfront about their stance on NFTs and is again reminding people by suspending accounts on Tencent’s WeChat that have been entertaining NFT discourse, 

Those in China can purchase NFTs but only through the nation’s own currency of yuan through a monitored version of blockchains. According to CNBC news, there are no regulations on NFTs in China as of yet and people can purchase NFTs through a marketplace, but secondary trading is “heavily restricted.”

Tencent never confirmed having suspended accounts, however WeChat’s Weibo (Twitter-like social platform) responded to local media’s report on the situation. WeChat clarified their rules of use around the topic of NFTs.
