Jingtong Technology CEO: Improved, hybrid blockchain-like approach may meet regulatory requirements

The CEO of Jingtong Technology and the co-founder of MOAC blockchain said that the "Technical Specification for Financial Distributed Ledger Technology" led by the central bank has strong business guidance for financial institutions and fintech companies.

In addition, he said that the existing public chain-based payment method is a completely decentralized solution. The advantage is that it has a decentralized trust mechanism, but the disadvantages are complex settings, no supervision, no offline payment function, and speed. Slow, unable to support transactions for a large number of users. The fully decentralized model cannot meet the central bank's requirements for the concurrent amount of retail payment scenarios.

It also needs to work closely with other stakeholders, such as the technical community and academic community. (Coinpost)
