China is rapidly adopting a pro-blockchain stance following news it would bring in a so-called “crypto law” in January next year. In a sign of China’s abrupt official about-turn on blockchain, officials are deleting posts that claim the technology is a scam, Twitter-based crypto news resource cnLedger reported on Oct. 28.

Chinese officials and president Xi Jinping caused a stir late last week after the latter gave a speech condoning blockchain. China, he said, would become the world’s foremost proponent of the technology and would seek to implement it throughout the economy.

According to cnLedger, in line with previous reactions to official policy, major social media platforms are already censoring anti-blockchain sentiment. “Articles saying blockchain technology is a scam are now BANNED,” it stated.

The move is somewhat ironic, cnLedger noting that in the past, it was content related to blockchain and cryptocurrency which administrators would seek to remove.

Similarly, it was blockchain platform Tron (TRX), formerly under intense scrutiny from Beijing, which benefited from the past week’s developments. In the past 24 hours alone, TRX/USD has gained almost 25%. CEO Justin Sun had announced a major, as yet unknown, partnership with what he called a “mega corporation” on the same day as Xi’s speech.
