Chairman Wang Wei introduces the winners

The purpose of the China Blockchain Industry Contribution Award is to unearth and remember the institutions and individuals who have made important contributions to the development of China's contemporary blockchain industry. It is also a history of China's finance. Awards are for the public good and no fees are charged. The awarding of museums will be different from the value orientation of government policies, and it will also avoid the commercial interests of institutions and the media. We look forward to more entrepreneurs and the public paying attention to the historical heritage and development of China's blockchain industry.
