The head of the Information Security Division of the Supreme People's Court Information Center, Xinjiang Bright, said on July 10 that the current level of wisdom in China's judiciary has reached the forefront of the world. Among them, the blockchain judicial deposit is an important part. At present, whether it is the legal level, the technical level or the practical application level, the blockchain technology has initially constructed a certain structure in the judicial deposit.

On September 3, 2018, the Supreme People's Court of China promulgated the Provisions of the Supreme People's Court on Several Issues Concerning Internet Trial Cases (Law [2018] No. 16) (hereinafter referred to as the "Regulations") by the Supreme People's Court Judging Committee No. 1747 The meeting was adopted and implemented from September 7, 2018.

However, although the current blockchain judicial deposit has gradually become popular, the use of electronic evidence still faces great challenges in judicial practice. According to the White Paper on the Application of Judicial Deposits in Blockchain, the challenges currently faced are mainly as follows. First, the centralized storage method is insufficient to prevent tampering, and it is difficult to distinguish whether the evidence has been tampered with. Second, At the time of evidence collection, if the original evidence and equipment are separated, the effectiveness of the evidence will be greatly lost. Third, in the demonstration, many times it is difficult to pass the electronic channel, usually need to be printed and converted into a documentary certificate, which may not only lose part of the content, but also determine the cost. It is also higher. Fourth, when the evidence is presented, it is easy for the content of the evidence from both sides to differ. It is difficult to determine whether it is wrong or not. Therefore, the court's determination of the "three sexes" of electronic evidence becomes very difficult.
