The South China Morning Post claimed that the Solana-based “move-to-earn” game Stepn will prohibit users in mainland China as requested by Chinese regulators.
Stepn is a blockchain-based fitness software developed by an Australian startup. It operates by allowing users to purchase NFTs that last for a set period. The user may exercise and earn the platform’s native GST tokens as a reward during this period, according to a report from The Block earlier this year.
According to a tweet sent on Thursday, on July 15, the business will begin “screening and cleaning out” mainland China users and will stop offering GPS and IP geolocation services to them.
According to Rong, the game, which Jerry Huang and Yawn Rong co-founded, has its greatest markets in Japan and the United States, and it now employs around 60 people.
