China Aims for Global Blockchain Leadership

May 07, 2020

The impact of COVID-19 has been overwhelming on a number of fronts. From the supply chain and economic recessions, to the cloud and work from home mandates, the global pandemic is an arbiter of evolution pushing next generation technology to the fore.

China has launched the first e-government blockchain platform (“Blockchain + Electronic Certificate and License”) in Anhui, and will deliver the more than 60 million citizens of the province with a number of services to support businesses in the region.

Per government report, “Each authorized action system will automatically record and store certificates and all usage actions for traceability to prevent misappropriation by others, enhancing the security and credibility of electronic licenses. The Provincial Data Resources Bureau and the Provincial Department of Justice are conducting pilot experiments on various application innovations of judicial and administrative electronic licenses in public security, procuratorates, and courts in Bozhou City, and will promote them to the Yangtze River Delta region.”

President Xi Jinping’s directive for state and local officials to take a deeper dive into the technology underpinning BItcoin served as impetus for the blockchain project. And now, officials will be exploring applications for practical business use cases to apply the platform to different industries.

A first step in a long journey, once completed a broad, integrated system will deliver improved data sharing across various departments and regions. Anhui is a key piece of the Yangtze River Delta region – the world’s 6th largest economic center.

While China aims to be a global leader in blockchain applications, it is beginning with tracking lawyers’ licenses and will be expanding services over time.
