The so-called blockchain is a distributed unified accounting system. Instead of "accounting by one person" by "multiple people keeping separate accounts" to prevent random tampering and ensuring data security. The integrated application of blockchain technology is generally considered to play an important role in new technological innovations and industrial changes.

The "White Paper" mentioned that in the ranking of blockchain graduates, the University of Electronic Science and Technology and Sichuan University ranked 7th and 8th in the country, respectively. Southwestern University of Finance and Economics, Chengdu University of Information Technology and other universities in Sichuan have also set up research directions for blockchain theory and technology in graduate related disciplines.
What do Sichuan blockchain companies mainly do? The White Paper mentions that on the one hand, some explorations have been made in the public chain (anyone can participate in "accounting"), such as photo sharing; but more is the alliance chain (required Participation in "bookkeeping" needs to be reviewed) related applications, such as supply chain finance, traceability of agricultural products, judicial deposit, medical prescription circulation, poverty alleviation fund management, etc.
