Alipay and WeChat Bow to Beijing Refusing to Play With Crypto

Alipay and WeChat Bow to Beijing Refusing to Play With Crypto
The announcement that the world’s top crypto exchange had opened two new fiat on-ramps for China was bullish for overall adoption prospects. However, as expected the pressure of Beijing has been too much for the platforms which have already stated they will not tolerate crypto payments.

China Still Hates Crypto
One hand gives and the other takes, at least that is how it has seemed to Chinese crypto traders this week. As reported by Bitcoinist , Binance confirmed that it would accept payments from China’s largest two online payments platforms this week when it enabled Alipay and WeChat Pay.
Combined, the two platforms have almost two billion users globally and it was hoped that this may open the doors for adoption from a massive potential market. The hunger for digital assets has not been quashed since China’s heavy handed ban on crypto exchanges two years ago.
The populace is very adept at subverting the system and getting their fix of crypto and uncensored internet access. It just so happens that they will have to do this again, especially if they use the state monitored Alipay and WeChat Pay services which have already said they would not allow crypto activities.

There’re several reports about Alipay being used for bitcoin transactions. To reiterate, Alipay closely monitors over-the-counter transactions to identify irregular behavior and ensure compliance with relevant regulations.

In other words, Alipay is bowing to Beijing, which has likely instructed it not to permit dealings with digital assets. The announcement continued to state that if any transactions are identified as being related to bitcoin or other virtual currencies, it would immediately stop the relevant payment services.
After posting a resounding ‘yes’ to a question on support of the two platforms, Binance boss Changpeng Zhao clarified that the exchange is not working directly with either payments platform, and users are still able to use them for peer-to-peer transactions.
China crypto observer Dovey Wan posted an official confirmation of Alipay’s anti-crypto stance found on its Weibo channel.

Alipay officially reaffirmed its “Prohibition of cryptocurrency OTC trading” on its Weibo today (auto translation below)
