Searches on e-commerce platform Taobao for copywriting services for creating blockchain, ICO, and Bitcoin-related white papers now yield zero results, Bianews reported (in Chinese). The products or kits were services used that for a fee would draft a company proposal or ICO pitch to attract investors. The services were aimed at blockchain companies in China.
The services cost anything from several hundred RMB to several hundred thousand. One Taobao seller was reporting sales of over 8,000 a month, according to BTC123 (in Chinese). The 20-30 page reports helped with token development and operation. According to a report by The Beijing News (in Chinese), the providers of the services were also prepared to falsify the backgrounds of the supposed team members of the buyer. They would even build a website for the new venture.
