Ric’s The Truth About Crypto Is Being Published in Chinese
But Why Did They Censor Some Content – Then Ban the Book?
Ric Edelman: I'm happy to tell you that my latest book, The Truth About Crypto, is getting rave reviews on websites everywhere, Amazon.com and elsewhere. The book debuted at number one at Amazon, and it's being now a worldwide success. It's now being published in Portuguese, German, Vietnamese, Italian, Turkish.
And now we've just sold the publishing rights to China. The book is being published by the China Translation and Publishing House. This publisher is owned by the Chinese government. And here's the ironic thing, China has banned Bitcoin, and yet the Chinese book publishing company is publishing my book on Bitcoin. Not too much irony there, huh? And check this out. The book has 31 tables, lists of companies that help you invest in Bitcoin and other digital assets, lists of news services, accountants, attorneys, and other services that help you manage your crypto investments. The Chinese publisher is deleting all of these tables from the Chinese version of the book. Yeah, they're censoring why they say they have to be deleted. They say these tables and lists have to be deleted from the book because mentioning them would be in violation of China's advertising law and regulations.
So there you have it. China bans crypto, publishes a book about crypto and censors the book in the process. Only the Chinese could behave in that way. Still 1.4 billion people in China - wonder how many of them are going to read The Truth About Crypto. You can read it in English and get the entire book uncensored, including all 31 of those lists. Thanks for reading The Truth About Crypto.
