All financial services and products are prohibited, including but not limited to … cryptocurrency.

The ban is not limited to crypto influencers alone as it will also affect money assets, loans, and foreign exchange services.

Why promoting cryptocurrency on Tik Tok was a problem

On Tik Tok, the majority of the audience is young and can be easily influenced.

Certain influencers became notorious for promoting their services of certain cryptocurrencies with propaganda.

While the ban was issued to protect the audience, the downside is that legitimate financial firms will no longer leverage influencers as they once did.
