Tron (TRX) founder Justin Sun and Binance co-founder Yi He have had their Weibo accounts suspended.
China’s major microblogging website, which is often referred as “Chinese Twitter,” has purportedly deleted the accounts of the two prominent crypto personas.
Sources in China confirmed to Cointelegraph that content on Weibo accounts of Justin Sun and Yi He is no longer unavailable, with pages alert the violation of provisions of the Weibo Community Convention.

Binance’s Weibo account was similarly suspended about a month ago
The news comes after Weibo blocked the account of major global cryptocurrency exchange Binance in mid-November. At the time, the Tron Foundation’s Weibo page also had its Weibo account blocked, displaying the same notice:
“The account has been blocked due to violations of laws and regulations and the relevant provisions of the Weibo Community Convention.”
Binance created a new Weibo account, which is live to date
Subsequently, Binance exchange registered a new Weibo account, according to founding partner of crypto investment firm Primitive Dovey Wan. Additionally, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao’s Weibo account is also active to date, according to the tweet.
While Weibo’s new blocking session appears to be anti-crypto, major cryptocurrency exchanges such as Huobi and OKEx are still available at the time of writing.
The new blocks come amidst reports on China’s plan to carry out the first real-world test of its central bank digital currency. The initial pilot project is reportedly expected to be rolled out in the city of Shenzhen as soon as in late 2019.
