As the CCTV Spring Festival Evening on the decline in the user’s attention, coupled with WeChat and Alipay have completed the three or four lines of the city’s sinking, Chicken Spring Festival Evening has not become a battlefield battle. However, a few years ago the market has been to allow users to get used to the Internet red envelopes, but also cultivate the habit of using mobile payment, the use of the scene gradually extended from the Spring Festival to online transactions and financial and offline scenes.
Zhang Xiaolong with WeChat red envelope opened Alipay walls, but Tencent real purpose is the Internet financial business. In addition to financial management stationed in the WeChat and QQ, the golden red envelopes and other social and financial games will debut will produce unpredictable results. For Alipay, the loss of the Spring Festival red envelopes after the high ground, the top spot in the Internet finance can not hand over, then Alipay how to counter the WeChat will be the new inflection point to pay the war.
