Chinese Vtubers have their Faces and Names Exposed

One of the perks of being a Vtuber is not showing your face or revealing your real name, just using your 2D character to create a persona and have fun with your subscribers, but not even that is possible anymore in China.

According to some online reports, new rules in China require influencers with a certain number of fans to submit, verify, and display their identities, showcasing their real names as well as a photo of their face to everyone.

The rules vary depending on the social media platform used by Chinese influencers, but the fact is, several Chinese Vtubers had their identities revealed because of the Chinese government, sparking a heated debate among fans.
