In addition, streaming platforms should also prohibit minors to bother streamers. It is noted that one of the common practices in China is to send special virtual gifts that can be easily exchanged for money, which causes serious damage to the physical and mental health of adolescents.

The new rules continue the measures taken by the Chinese party regarding the tightening of the stream sector against the backdrop of the rapid growth of this market in the country after the beginning of the Pandemia of the coronavirus. Earlier, the Chinese government has entered into a ban on broadcasting video games that have not passed the corresponding certification.
