CCTV NFTs infiltrate the resale market without regulators’ approval

In a pre-sale auction on China’s largest online second-hand market, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) issued by China Central Television (CCTV) are selling for at least ten times the initial price. To avoid using the phrase “NFT,” Chinese businesses have increasingly utilised the term “digital collectibles”. The shocking part is that the trade embargoes on the digital assets are still not lifted.

At the Chinese New Year celebration, CCTV launched 34,000 collectibles of 13 distinct Chinese zodiac-themed models at China’s Lantern Festival on both Tencent and Alibaba’s NFT markets, with an original price of 29.9 yuan (USD4.72) per piece.
