Additionally, blockchain has the potential to significantly improve our life as citizens, and change the way we work and interact in our society."

Mr. Bin Yang, Vice President of Tsinghua University, noted, "The development of industry-trusted blockchain application technologies has become a vital national strategy for all countries.  It is an important goal for us to deeply build digital ecosystems, which once integrated into our economy should speed up China's economic transition by upgrading the industry standard.
