On October 24 last year, when the 18th Collective Learning Conference of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China on the status and trends of the development of blockchain technology was made clear, the important role of the integrated application of blockchain technology in new technological innovation and industrial transformation ; The domestic blockchain technology is accelerating the transition from the theoretical stage to the application practice, and the industrial structure of the Hangzhou blockchain is changing quietly every day.

However, in the face of this wave of upsurge, the attitudes of the Hangzhou blockchain entrepreneurs are quite the same, "I hope everyone can calm down, do not take advantage of the hot speculation, and use technology to do practical things."

Capital enthusiasm soars, funding reports are frequent, and blockchain projects are exploding in 2019

In June 2018, FunChain completed a 1.5 billion yuan B round of financing, creating the largest single financing record in the blockchain field, becoming the first quasi-unicorn enterprise in the blockchain industry. In December 2019, the Cloud Elephant blockchain completed a tens of millions of RMB A ++ round of financing, which is already the fifth financing completed by the company. Earlier, the cumulative financing amount of the Cloud Elephant Blockchain exceeded 200 million yuan.

In fact, after the country took the blockchain as an important breakthrough in independent innovation of core technology at the end of October 2018, the enthusiasm of capital increased, and financing success was frequent .

In the past two months, four companies in Hangzhou alone reported financing. In addition to the cloud-like blockchain, Hangzhou Block Beat Technology Co., Ltd. has received a multi-million dollar Pre-A round of financing. Co., Ltd. received a round of financing of tens of millions of RMB, and Zhejiang Oracle Supercode Technology Co., Ltd. received an unknown amount of financing. In addition, Hangzhou Jianan Yunzhi Information Technology Co., Ltd. successfully landed on NASDAQ on November 21, 2019, and was called "the first share of the global blockchain business."

From the perspective of the development of blockchain companies, the number of registered blockchain companies in Hangzhou has been on the rise from 2010 to 2019. Especially in 2018, the number of newly registered blockchain companies in the city reached 717, an increase The rate is 153%. As of December 2019, the total number of blockchain companies registered in Hangzhou is 1,611, which is an increase of 1,440 compared to 2010. This shows how active the blockchain has been in Hangzhou in recent years.

On the eve of the blockchain's application explosion, the earliest commercialization in the financial sector

"The focus now is not to talk about the revolutionary value of blockchain, but to go directly to the field and explore blockchain applications that can stand the test of practice." Said Ma Qianli, vice president of Babbitt, a senior domestic blockchain community.

Application: Finance

FunChain Technology, which was the first to lay out in the financial field, established a mobile digital money order platform supported by blockchain technology with Zhejiang Commercial Bank as early as 2016; it has also launched the industry's first enterprise "receivables chain platform". On the platform, accounts receivable can be converted into electronic payment settlement and financing tools.

Application: Government Affairs

In November 2018, Hangzhou Data Resources Administration Bureau completed the construction and trial operation of the city's first government affairs blockchain underlying system, the "government service chain", which was provided by Babbitt for technical support. At present, the blockchain system has been initially applied to the trusted identity authentication scenario of "at most one run" in Hangzhou.

Application: Judicial

At the same time, with the implementation of blockchain technology in the judicial field, Hangzhou has also taken the lead in the country. On June 28, 2018, the Hangzhou Internet Court issued a public judgment on a dispute over the infringement of the right to spread information on the Internet of works. It confirmed the legal effect of electronic data using blockchain technology for the first time in the country, and clarified blockchain electronics. The method of reviewing and judging the deposit certificate is provided by the security network under the Qin technology.

Zhejiang University's blockchain entrepreneurs take the lead, Hangzhou is expected to build the world's first blockchain city

On October 24, 2019, the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee conducted the eighteenth collective study on the current status and trends of the development of blockchain technology. Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and Professor Chen Chun of Zhejiang University gave a report at the meeting and discussed their opinions and suggestions.

In July 2016, Li Wei, who has always been a entrepreneurial dream, founded Quchain Technology with several Zhejiang University doctors, and the team devoted himself to the research and development and industry implementation of domestic independent controllable alliance chain platforms.

Three months before the establishment of FunChain, it was also Huang Butian from Zhejiang University. The blockchain company Yunxiang just founded had just received an angel round of financing of 3 million yuan.

Later on, Yunxiang and FunChain, in 2016, also focused on the underlying technology of the blockchain. Xie Yijian of Mi Ape Technology is a low-key geek who has been living in the country and has been focusing on the basic technology of the blockchain.

In 2008, Shao Jianliang, the general manager of the Jianan Yunzhi Blockchain Division, came into contact with Bit, and later started mining into the blockchain industry. In November 2019, Jia Nan Yun Zhi successfully listed on the Nasdaq in the United States. Shao Jianliang also successfully promoted from the early clients of Jia Nan Yun Zhi to become the "first stock of global blockchain business" executives.

These Zhejiang University-based blockchain entrepreneurs and practitioners have laid a solid foundation for the development of the Hangzhou blockchain industry. Huang Butian believes that most of the top blockchain companies in the country are now concentrated in Hangzhou. Whether it is a startup atmosphere, capital environment or industry chain support, Hangzhou has provided fertile soil for the blockchain industry's entrepreneurial innovation. It is expected to create a "global Blockchain First City. "

In terms of blockchain technology research, Hangzhou is currently at the forefront of cities across the country. As one of the "Top Four China's Blockchain Innovative Cities", Hangzhou is the first city in the country to explicitly write the blockchain into the government work report. As of now, six blockchain industrial parks in Hangzhou have been formally put into operation.
