China: “Innovation in Blockchain Doesn’t Mean We Should Speculate in Virtual Currencies”

  • “Blockchain “the future is here.” — China’s state-owned media
  • Use of blockchain technology for illegal information and activities “should also be severely punished”
  • Some of the largest Internet companies have already established the layout

China’s state-owned media, People’s Daily endorsed the “orderly” blockchain innovation but at the same time cautioned to “keep it rational.”

As per the translated version shared by Dovey Wan, the founding partner of Primitive Partners, the article starts with a bullish tone as it writes, “blockchain “the future is here.”

Blockchain technology is accompanied by cryptocurrency, it goes on to say, only to make it clear, that innovation in blockchain technology “is not equal to” the speculation in the digital assets.

“It should be prevented from using blockchain to hype up aircoins and other activities,” adds the newspaper.

China Already Has a ‘Good Foundation’

Though the “future is here,” blockchain technology is still in the early stage of development.

The technology needs to be further developed and improved in terms of safety, standards, and supervision. The use of blockchain to store and spread illegal information and for illegal transactions, money laundering and other activities “should also be severely punished.”

To better promote the innovative development of technology, it advises the adoption of inclusive and prudent regulation that includes prohibiting transgression.

Though they believed “there is no wrong direction for the development of blockchain” that is only by avoiding the rush and repeated construction.

China, the People’s Daily says already has a “good foundation” in the field of blockchain technology.

More than 20 provinces have introduced policies to promote the nascent technology and some of the largest Internet companies have established the layout as well.
