Recently, the blockchain technology has been highly affirmed by the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee. The stock prices of listed companies involved in the concept of blockchain have soared, and the market is hot. The blockchain is also being discussed as “turned positive” by the state, and the future prospects are bound to be bright.
Right now, close to the year, 2019 will be closed, 1 year has passed, what progress has the Shenzhen Blockchain Industry Alliance made?

It might be time to filter out the noise in crypto (particularly the tribalism and vulture culture) and do some research into these entities that are literally terraforming the entire blockchain landscape in the Silicon Valley of China. We must remember that no single cryptocurrency will be ‘the coin’ of China, and any notion that suggests so is simply delusional. We must also remember that the consultants involved with setting reference architecture of blockchain standards must be taken seriously – the cryptos that want to operate in China will no doubt be adhering to policies and standards set out by these consultants.
