Sources say that the Chinese crypto ban does not pose a threat to local media outlets

Chinese crypto media are said to be keeping their websites under wraps and focusing on growing communities via Telegram and Twitter.
While some major Chinese cryptocurrency-related publications seem to be shutting down, a number continue to be run by local news agencies that have switched to social media like Twitter.China’s most recent crypto ban would not significantly affect local crypto media sources as there are a number of ways to disseminate industry information, according to an executive at one of the biggest crypto publications in China.The exec, who asked to remain anonymous, told Cointelegraph on Wednesday that several local crypto sites have been moving their community to other media channels like Twitter and Telegram after the government enforced a new crypto ban in September. “They are trying share more information there and keep low-key on their websites,” said the person. “We can get all of the info we need from Twitter,” another crypto media insider told Cointelegraph. “More Chinese people visited Twitter and Telegram, some of which also have high quality,” he added. They continued to post industry news through new domains, but this didn’t stop them from posting on Twitter or Telegram. This was due to their Beijing-based base. The person stated that media outside Beijing are not blocked. The person said that some crypto publications, such as Jinse, Panews, and 8btc, were not affected by the latest ban on crypto. We still have information sources, and we continue to get more users, evangelists and developers. There is nothing to be concerned about. Everything works out for the best. Sources tell Cointelegraph that ChainNews shut down its services in November. The publication’s last Telegram post is dated Nov. 25, according to Cointelegraph. According to SimilarWeb data, the website received more than 1.5 million visits in the last month.
