Original title: "Promoting the safe and orderly development of blockchains (new theory)"

The application of blockchain technology has been extended to digital finance, Internet of Things, intelligent manufacturing, supply chain management, digital asset trading and other fields. We must attach great importance to its development and attach great importance to its management.

Facing the new thing of blockchain, we need to observe and track its development, establish a rules system, and promote industry self-discipline.

General Secretary Xi Jinping emphasized in the 18th collective study of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee that "we must strengthen the guidance and standardization of blockchain technology". "Improve the rule of law into the management of blockchain and promote the safe and orderly blockchain." development of". At present, the application of blockchain technology has been extended to digital finance, Internet of Things, intelligent manufacturing, supply chain management, digital asset trading and other fields. We must attach great importance to its development and attach great importance to its management.

Facing the new thing of blockchain, we need to observe and track its development, establish a rules system, promote industry self-discipline, rule the Internet, and develop in an orderly manner. Ensuring that blockchain technology benefits the whole society, the premise is to manage the blockchain well.

The blockchain should be managed to recognize the necessity of managing the blockchain. The blockchain has brought tremendous opportunities to the economic and social development of all countries in the world. The major countries in the world are actively accelerating the development of blockchain technology. Although the concept of "autonomy" and "self-discipline" is a distinctive feature of the blockchain, its technological development is at an early stage, the application status is still immature, and security is facing challenges. For example, blockchain may become a tool for storing and disseminating information on violations of laws and regulations, and implementing illegal criminal activities on the Internet; commercial systems created by unofficial digital currencies may affect national economic and financial security, and so on. From this, it can be seen that in order to promote the elimination of disadvantages, foster strengths and avoid weaknesses, and achieve a safe and orderly development of blockchains, government supervision is necessary, otherwise it may be chaotic and lead.

The blockchain can manage the pipe and establish the confidence of the blockchain. Strengthening the governance and regulation of the blockchain is not only conducive to the healthy development of the blockchain, but also conducive to the modernization of the national governance system and governance capacity. Managing the blockchain is a new topic. We can't have fears. We must firmly believe that the blockchain can be supervised both technically and legally. The blockchain is essentially a set of governance frameworks, the core of which is an incentive constraint mechanism based on a combination of technologies. One of the next development priorities is to achieve regulatory convenience and low cost. Government departments must not only become the makers of blockchain policies, but also become active applicators and scenario managers of blockchains.

The blockchain will also be managed, and the management of the blockchain should be inclusive and just right. The development of blockchain is still in its early stages. Government regulation needs to be inclusive, prudent, focus on results, and properly implemented, allowing exploration, allowing trial and error, and creating favorable conditions for the development of new things. On the one hand, clear the bottom line thinking, introduce a negative list, and steadily promote the pilot project; on the other hand, strengthen positive guidance, achieve innovative breakthroughs in capital operation, investment management, etc., and increase its risk-taking, industrial support, and resource-gathering capabilities, while fully The study uses the positive factors of developed countries in terms of technical talents, markets, policies, etc., supports outstanding enterprises to go to sea, introduces overseas high-quality projects, and strives to seek cooperation and win-win.

General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that the relevant departments and their responsible leaders should pay attention to the status quo and trends of blockchain technology development and improve the technical ability of using and managing blockchain. For leading cadres, they must be used and managed. In the application of learning management, and better use in management, we can make blockchain technology play a greater role in building a network power, developing the digital economy, and helping economic and social development.
