Wan Jianzhong, a folklore expert with Beijing Normal University, said the e-hongbao is a sign of traditional culture evolving in the Internet era.

"Hongbao are usually given to children by parents or older relatives, but the Internet has made the activity a universal pastime," Wan said.

With mobile Internet involved Cheap Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Jersey , some caution that the popularity of e-hongbao may cause some problems. Hong Tao of Beijing Technology and Business University believes it will take much time and energy to deal with the cash flow as much of the money is not withdrawn.
