Millennium plan, national events, the world's first blockchain city, the best soil for building blockchain …

The above evaluations all point to the same place-Xiong'an New District.

On April 1, 2017, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the State Council decided to establish the Xiong'an New District in Hebei. This is another new district of national significance after the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone and Shanghai Pudong New District. It is a millennium plan and a national event.

On April 21, 2018, the blockchain was written into the "Hebei Xiong'an New District Planning Outline", and a technology with far-reaching and profound significance began to grow together with a rising digital city with a historical mission.

Go to the official website of "China Xiong'an", search for "blockchain" keywords, and record up to 15 pages and more than 280 records.

The earliest record can be traced back to September 19, 2017, only five months after the establishment of the Xiong'an New District was approved.

In the more than 930 days since, the Xiong'an New District has published news about the blockchain almost every 3 days.

Babbitt sorted out the above information according to the introduction of policies, investment cooperation, theoretical research, and application, and a glimpse of the speed of the blockchain in the Xiong'an New District.

Policy: In 2020, the framework of the blockchain industry layout will basically take shape

Planning first and planning first is the request made by the Party Central Committee and the State Council when making decisions about the construction of the Xiong'an New District, as is the Xiong'an New District's development of the blockchain.

Before the blockchain was written into the "Hebei Xiong'an New District Planning Outline", the Hebei Provincial Government made a deployment in advance for the development of the Xiong'an New District's blockchain. It is required that by 2020, the industrial layout framework of the Xiong'an New District's starting area will be basically formed.

Synchronous planning and simultaneous construction of cities and physical cities opened a new chapter.

Application landing: creating the best soil for blockchain

Millennium Xiulin: Large-scale practice of blockchain in urban forest construction

The millennium Xiulin is a concrete manifestation of the Xiong'an New District's adherence to the concept of ecological priority and green development. It is also the first major infrastructure construction project in the New District. On November 13, 2017, the afforestation of the No. 9 plot of Xiong'an New District officially started seedling planting work, and the "Millennium Show Forest" project opened.

In order to make it a "transparent Xiong'an" model, the New District and ICBC have developed a blockchain fund management platform to monitor the flow of project special funds in afforestation participation units and stakeholders, and ensure that the special funds are used exclusively. Before the construction of the project, Xiong'an Group collected the salary cards of all the workers involved in tree planting in advance and linked them to the blockchain platform system to dynamically record the working conditions of the workers. The money for afforestation was eventually directly hit into each worker's account on.

As of the end of 2019, the "Millennium Show Forest" project has accumulated a total of 310,000 mu of afforestation, with 200 tree species and 14 million trees planted.

The system is jointly built by Xiong'an New District in cooperation with China CITIC Bank, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, Construction Bank and other units. It uses the characteristics of tamper-proof and traceable data on the blockchain to pay funds in a timely and full amount to the accounts of builders and material suppliers. Effectively avoiding the problems of capital interception, misappropriation, and arrears are innovative practices for building a "corrupt and safe".

Blockchain renting: real people, real houses, real houses

"Never engage in land finance, we must consider the long-term interests of the people, and never engage in image engineering" are the three principles for the construction of the Xiong'an New District. Under this principle, the Xiong'an New District innovates in real estate and implements both rent and sale. .

Digital twin cities: the world's first full-life digital city

Kevin Kelly, the author of "Out of Control", once said that in the future, the entire real world will be mapped into a digital society. In the mirrored world of "digital twins," people can interact with tools. In order to ensure the credibility and authenticity of the uploaded data, blockchain technology is required.

Kevin Kelly's vision has gradually become a reality in the Xiong'an New District.

At the same time as the construction of the physical city, the Xiong'an New District is also building a digital city at the same time.

The civil service center project under construction, what is built in reality, what is the space layout, and what materials are used, will be made synchronously in the digital space to achieve digital architecture . For example, for steel components, all information such as manufacturer, production time, purchase time, and quality report can be read by scanning the QR code.

In the millennium show forest under construction, every tree has an identity. This information is gathered into the Xiong'an Forest Big Data Management System to realize the digital forest .

Every resident in the Xiong'an New District has obtained a "digital ID" through the "1 + 2 + N" account system to realize digitization .

As the first city in the world to start building a full digital process from the origin of the city, Xiong'an New District dared to take the lead, grasp the trend, promote the in-depth integration of blockchain and economic and social development, and actively opened a large number of scenes for blockchain landing . The establishment of the Xiong'an Blockchain Lab this time laid a solid foundation for the Xiong'an New District to promote blockchain technology at the forefront of theory and occupy the commanding heights of technology . When the new district is completed, the Xiong'an New District will surely leave an intriguing stroke for the large-scale application of blockchain in China and the world.
