Wanxiang and Xiao Feng's blockchain map: you can see the "tip of the iceberg"

How big is the blockchain layout of Wanxiang and Xiaofeng?

The "Shanghai Blockchain International Week" held from September 14th to September 18th and the "Fifth Block Global Summit" can be seen.

The guests, from the north to the south, across the East, have different skin colors, speak different languages, and engage in different jobs, but they have more or less relationships with Wanxiang Group and Xiaofeng himself.

For example, the founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin (V God), is the chief scientist of the Wanxiang Blockchain Laboratory; Wanxiang Blockchain Lab and Weizhong Bank have cooperated with the BCOS project, and the vice president of Weizhong Bank Ma Zhitao Also invited to give a speech; platON is the blockchain project that Xiao Feng personally is in charge of. The matrix element JUZIX, which was founded by Sun Lilin, the founder of the project, was also the distributed capital investment created by Xiao Feng. In addition, the only chain obtained Xiao. Wind and Shenbo jointly launched the investment of distributed capital, the only person in charge of the chain and the acquisition of the only chain of PricewaterhouseCoopers took the stage; Deloitte sent Antonio Senatore, the global chief technology officer of the Deloitte blockchain, as early as In 2016, we cooperated with the Wanxiang blockchain to “hackathon”…

In addition, on the stage, including the general manager of Unicom Internet of Things company Chen Xiaotian, Qtum co-founder Shuai Chu, DBS China Chief Information Officer Sim Loong wang, etc., took the lead in introducing the cooperation relationship with the Wanxiang blockchain.

Many friends asked how much the layout of Wanxiang and Xiaofeng blockchains is, and the interlinkage pulse is based on public information, which may be the most important key enterprises and individuals involved in the global blockchain.

Wanxiang and Xiaofeng's blockchain five major plates

Speaking of the universal blockchain, it is inseparable from the soul figure Xiao Feng.

Founded in 1969, Wanxiang Group, a private enterprise, has been a frequent visitor to the top 500 Chinese companies, but its main business is the auto parts business. It is hard to imagine that the group will become a leader in the blockchain field. The arrival of Xiao Feng changed everything.

Wanxiang Group's public activities in the blockchain began in 2015. In May of that year, Vitalik came to China for investment for the second time, and won the support of Wanxiang Xiaofeng and the founder of distributed capital Shen Bo. Distributed capital purchased 416,000 Ethereum native coins ETH for 500,000 US dollars. V God was posted on the blog on September 27, 2015.

But in fact, for Xiao Feng, he has been studying the blockchain for many years.

In 2011, Xiao Feng retired from the position of general manager of Bosera Fund, went to Wanxiang Holdings as vice chairman, and presided over the financial business of Wanxiang Group, including Wanxiang Trust. In 2013, he founded the technology finance company Tonglian Data Co., Ltd., an intelligent financial data service company.

Xiao Feng is very interested in new technologies and new things. According to Xiao Feng’s secretary, he revealed to the chain pulse that Xiao Feng was studying bitcoin and blockchain before he left the post of general manager of Boss Fund: “When the Boss Fund is still on, Xiao Feng’s office desk, There are books on the blockchain."

So it is conceivable that when Xiao Feng and Vitalik met for the first time, he understood the 21-year-old young guy and generously funded it.

After that, the development of the Wanxiang blockchain and Xiaofeng's blockchain business have been out of control. Up to now, several major sectors have been formed:

1. Universal Block Chain Lab – Operational Organization

After investigation, the Wanxiang Blockchain Laboratory was established in September 2015 by Wanxiang Holdings Co., Ltd., and the industrial and commercial registration was completed in December 2016. The legal representative is Xiao Feng. It carries the main dominant activities of the universal blockchain, including the hosting of the Shanghai Blockchain Week.

The head of the Wanxiang Blockchain Laboratory is Du Yu, a master of Zhejiang University and an MBA of the American Lehigh University. Joined China Wanxiang Holdings in August 2015. The lab mainly does five things:

First, the organization of the conference activities. In addition to the Shanghai blockchain week and the related “blockchain global summit”, the hackathon competition is also hosted by the organization.

Second, training. As early as November 2015, the Universal Blockchain Lab launched the BlockTrain X training program. The products that are now under training are the “Hives Academy” and the “Blockchain Small Classroom”.

Third, books are published. After investigation, Wanxiang Blockchain Lab published a number of blockchain industry books, as shown in the following table:

Fourth, the project supports. The Wanxiang Blockchain Lab specifically participated in the support of two underlying technology projects. One of them was actually involved in the operation of China Distributed Ledger Foundation Agreement (ChinaLedger Alliance), but currently there is no sound as an independent project, ChinaLedger. Another project is to cooperate with Weizhong Bank and Matrix Yuan to promote the two major blockchain alliances and Chinaledger to complete the strategic cooperation and complete the BCOS platform and open source.

Finally, participate in the construction of some blockchain organizations. Including the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology Blockchain Technology and Industry Development Forum and the Shanghai Blockchain Technology Application Alliance.

2. Wanxiang Blockchain AG – Core Entity

Because Wanxiang Group defines Wanxiang Blockchain Lab as a non-profit organization, under the group, there is a need for institutions to undertake profitable tasks. Wanxiang Blockchain Co., Ltd. came into being.

In October 2015, Wanxiang Holdings first established “Shanghai Buzhen Network Technology Co., Ltd.” (hereinafter referred to as Buju Network). In November of that year, the account of the BlockTrain X training program of the Wanxiang Blockchain Lab was沁 Network. In addition, according to the registration information of intellectual property such as soft and trademark, Buju Network also undertakes the maintenance of Wanxiang blockchain cloud products, Chinaledger project official website, and dfinity (distributed capital invested) Chinese station.

In January 2017, Wanxiang Blockchain Co., Ltd. was established, and the blockchain entity company of Wanxiang was integrated. For example, in March 2018, 100% of the shares of the company were transferred; in December 2018, Acquired 100% equity of Shanghai Tengmeng Network Technology Co., Ltd., which originally belonged to Shanghai Chuangyuan Technology Development Co., Ltd., and Xiao Feng served as a director.

In addition, some of the blockchain company shares invested by Wanxiang are also included in the name of Wanxiang Blockchain Corporation.

According to industry and commerce information, Wanxiang Blockchain shares have invested in 11 companies and another branch office has been established in Hangzhou.

3. Shanghai Distributed Investment Management Co., Ltd. – Investment Agency

Distributed capital is the most active blockchain investment institution in the world today. On September 24th, the cryptocurrency agreement Securitize announced that it had received $14 million in financing and distributed capital was involved. The second round of financing disclosed by AlphaWallet, the digital wallet project on September 19, also involved in distributed capital. According to the incomplete statistics of inter-chain pulse, there are more than 80 projects involving distributed capital, which is already the leading institution in the global blockchain investment field. In addition to Bitcoin, Ethereum, including the second-generation blockchain network, block.one, the leading agency of the third-generation blockchain network EOS, and even Libra, the hotspot of this year, have different levels of participation.

Strictly speaking, distributed capital and Wanxiang Group have no equity relationship. In 2015, Shen Bolai co-founded Xiao Feng and Vitalk. Its trademark is attributed to Shanghai Distribution Investment Management Co., Ltd. The company Xiao Feng is a legal person and holds 100% of the shares.

According to the inter-chain pulse from the crunchbase, the sky-eye investigation, the distributed account book official website and other channels to query the distributed capital participated in 85 blockchain projects. Covering many well-known projects at home and abroad, the list is as follows:

4. New chain space – physical space

Xiao Feng and Wanxiang have a one-stop cultivation of the blockchain project. Both the project of the Wanxiang Blockchain Co., Ltd. and the investment project of the distributed capital can be in the new chain space of the Wanxiang blockchain. Office. It is also the office of Tonglian Data.

According to the introduction, the new chain space is a comprehensive entrepreneurial service platform for the financial technology companies, which is characterized by a blockchain. It is a financial technology innovation and entrepreneurship team and provides technology, entrepreneurial salons, project roadshows, financing docking, entrepreneurship training, entrepreneurial services, etc., through one-stop entrepreneurship and guidance, to help entrepreneurs grow and develop, provide them with a line The resources under the line are docked.

The new chain space is located in Shanghai's North Bund, covering an area of ​​more than 1,300 square meters. Many of the above-mentioned forms are located here, such as Star Pomelo, Original, Pencil, Border Intelligence, and Second Titanium.

5. Wanxiang Innovation Energy City – Application Landing Carrier

The last big section is the blockchain built by Wanxiang Group and the urban carrier of other digital technologies – Wanxiang Innovation Energy City.

Wanxiang Innovation Energy City is located in the “heart zone” of Dawan District, Zhejiang Province. It is the largest investment project of Xiaoshan to date, and is expected to reach 200 billion yuan. 12 key construction projects involving lithium-ion power batteries, new energy passenger vehicles, international financial technology community, smart city CBD community, and research institutes will realize the deep integration of “entity + digital”.

At the 5th Global Blockchain Summit just held, Wang Yunwei, the chief innovation officer of Wanxiang Innovation Energy City, introduced the strategy behind it: “Find out some key nodes in the blockchain ecosystem, one by one, Until a complete ecosystem is established, this not only allows us to establish a blockchain position in China and the world, but also promotes the thriving development of blockchain communities and blockchain ecosystems in China."

Lu Weiding, Chairman of Wanxiang Group's Board of Directors, defined the city as "a decision without a retreat" at the mobilization meeting.

Wang Yunqi introduced the application of blockchain in changing cities: Wanxiang Innovation Energy City's three characteristics are intelligent infrastructure, distributed urban intelligence and digital economy, based on the blockchain technology.

Wang Yunyi hopes to build a smart city to test the economy. Individual behavior, as well as the interests of business entities and the interests of the government, are integrated on a blockchain platform.

As you can imagine, this is a city that is completely built on blockchain technology. In the process of urban construction, Wanxiang's blockchain ecology will have enough grounding scenes.

With a complete blockchain industry chain, from education and training, event organization, project investment, innovation incubation, to the construction of a city to use the blockchain, this is difficult for any other blockchain organization.

Xiao Feng's horse racing strategy

From the latitude of the blockchain field that Wanxiang and Xiaofeng are involved in, the categories are complete. According to the inter-chain pulse classification, 44 subcategories were involved.

Mutual chain pulse divides blockchain projects into three categories, one is industrial application, mainly for solving industrial or industrial problems; the other is industrial base, mainly for providing technology and infrastructure for blockchain applications. The third is the industry periphery, which does not use blockchain technology itself, but provides ecological support for the blockchain project.

Mutual chain pulse statistics, a total of 95 projects involving the company and distributed capital of Wanxiang Group (has been deduplicated), of which 48 are industrial industrial application projects, accounting for 51%; 27 industrial infrastructure projects, accounting for 28%; 20 industrial peripheral projects, accounting for 21%.

From this picture, we can see the preference of Wanxiang and Xiaofeng. The main problem is to solve the practical problem through the blockchain.

Among the 48 industrial application projects, 16 financial projects, including payment, supply chain finance, insurance, banking, securities, etc., accounted for 33%; followed by cutting-edge technology, including cloud computing, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, etc. 9, the proportion of 19%; the third is the digital certificate category, including digital identity, traceability, legal credentials, etc., 7, accounting for 15%.

(Cartography: Interchain Pulse)

In terms of 27 industrial infrastructure projects, 12 infrastructure projects accounted for 44%, and blockchain infrastructure refers to the underlying public chain, cross-chain, alliance chain, etc.; 8 basic service projects, accounting for 30%, mainly Provide enterprise services, BAAS, SAAS and other projects; 7 basic technologies, accounting for 26%, mainly to provide professional technologies such as security technology, protocol technology, network facilities technology.

(Cartography: Interchain Pulse)

In the 20 industrial peripheral projects, the exchange accounted for 10, accounting for 50%; followed by research rating and incubator class, each of which accounted for 15%.

The exchange is currently a rare category of projects that generate profits in the blockchain, and Wanxiang and distributed capital are not soft on investment.

(Cartography: Interchain Pulse)

It can be seen from the above that Wanxiang and Xiaofeng have adopted a horse racing strategy for some competitive large-scale projects. In addition to investing in 10 exchanges, there are more than 10 underlying public chain and cross-chain projects. I tend to bet on a certain home. Xiao Feng himself said that more than 80% of the public chain will fail, which is the general business law.

The above is a blockchain map of the universal and Xiaofeng pieces that the inter-chain pulse is pieced together according to the public information. But we know that what we can often see is the "tip of the iceberg". The blockchain empire of Wanxiang and Xiaofeng, how big it may be, may take longer to dig deeper and study.
