South China Morning Post mentioned in September 2018 that Blockchain data was accepted as evidence in legal complaint filed by short video app Douyin, also known as TikTok.
The Chinese court announced that it will recognise evidence stored on the blockchain. It is the first time that China recognises evidence stored in the blockchain.
Douyin won the copyright infringement case by hashing the webpage of the defendant as well as the source code, and uploading the hash to the Factom blockchain, according to CNN. Not a small detail. Thanks to Factom, Douyin won from the world’s 8th largest internet company Baidu.
