China’s biggest search engine censor’s cryptocurrency discussion forum

Asia China Cryptocurrency

According to a recent report from China Times (CT), the most popular Chinese internet search engine Baidu removed all cryptocurrency-related content from its discussion forum, Baidu Tieba.

CT quotes an anonymous source which claims that cryptocurrency subforums won’t be allowed due to existing laws and regulations. A representative of Baidu Tieba did not comment on the cryptocurrencies issue and state only that the company will “operate and manage its forum business based on existing Chinese laws and regulations.”

“This forum is temporarily closed due to relevant laws, regulations, and policies” reads a message which appears when the forum is searched for “digital currency” or “virtual currency forum” queries.
