According to the analysis of the Interlink Pulse Research Institute, the policy of the "1024 Conference" has been overweight, and it has "ripe" a large number of blockchain application projects in a very short period of time. However, this kind of policy "ripe" is essentially a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it does promote the development of the blockchain industry and the application of blockchain technology to a certain extent. On the other hand, in the current district, Blockchain landing applications are still at the stage of "throwing stones and asking for directions". A large number of blockchain application projects are rushing on. If the application landing results are far from expected, after the boom, the entire blockchain industry may return to a trough.
