Chinese Messaging Giant WeChat Suspends Third-Party Blockchain App
China’s most popular messaging application, WeChat, has frozen a third-party blockchain application designed to present the technology to a broad user base. The Chinese technological giant released a statement in which it claimed that the application was suspended due to services that were not open to the platform.
WeChat is one of the largest platforms in the world with more than 1 billion active users around the world. WeChat developed by Tencent offers multiple products such as messaging, social networks and payments within the same app.
The mini-program, called Xiao Xieyi (or Mini Protocol in a literal translation), was launched on Wednesday and is touted as a service that allows WeChat users to enter into contractual agreements, according to the Chinese business type of Caijing. However, the application, owned by Tencent, suspended the program in one day.
The conditions the third-party app violated to be removed from the messaging platform is still unclear. A search of its name now leads to a page which explains the program has violated rules on the platform. It is not that the company is opposed to using blockchain technology.
The app said. “The Mini Protocol is now being suspended because the type of its service is not yet authorized by the platform”.
