As soon as 2020 entered, the news of giants’ overweight blockchain layout came one after another.

On January 8, Jiang Guofei, vice president of ant financial services and President of intelligent technology, announced at the media communication meeting that ant blockchain will open platform technical capabilities to the whole industry, especially for real industries; Tencent has also recently added a number of patent information related to blockchain, many of which are related to blockchain landing applications, etc.

“We believe that many blockchain pilot scenarios are expected to be opened in 2020, and the application of ‘blockchain +’ will penetrate rapidly, and the combination with 5g, Internet of things and AI will be more grounded,” Guosheng Securities pointed out.

Jiang Guofei said to our reporter, “the beginning of industrial blockchain in 2020.” blockchain is the most valuable field in the era of industrial Internet. This year will be a year for blockchain to get rid of virtual reality and deeply integrate with industry.

However, the blockchain industry development trend report (2019) (hereinafter referred to as the “report”) also points out that the development of China’s blockchain industry is facing some challenges, including limited social cognition and recognition, and insufficient perception at the C-end; The business profit point is not clear, and the use scenario needs to be further explored; The core technology needs to be broken through and so on.

Giants compete to accelerate layout

The integrated application of blockchain technology plays an important role in new technological innovation and industrial transformation. We should take blockchain as an important breakthrough in independent innovation of core technology and accelerate the development of blockchain technology and industrial innovation. Previously, the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee stressed during the 18th collective study.

With the positive signals released at the policy level, the blockchain has entered a comprehensive acceleration stage. At the beginning of the new year, giants made frequent moves in blockchain.

On January 8, Jiang Guofei disclosed at the media communication meeting that at present, ant blockchain has solved the trust problem in more than 40 scenarios, including cross-border remittance, supply chain finance, judicial deposit certificate, electronic bill and so on, with an increase of 2 per month.

“Ant blockchain will make efforts in the following aspects: first, build a broader ecological alliance, and more actively invite partners in many industries to promote the construction of large-scale blockchain and create value-added value in the industry; second, actively preach the market through ant blockchain universities and other universities; third, the business ecology of sustainable development.” He further told reporters.

In addition to ant financial services, the reporter of Huaxia times learned from tianyancha data that Tencent has also added a number of patent information related to blockchain, many of which involve blockchain landing applications, such as “blockchain based loan information processing methods, devices, equipment and storage media”; “Blockchain based medical record data processing method, device, storage medium and equipment”, etc.

“We expect 2020 to be a year when blockchain applications will be implemented intensively,” said Bao Youchen, an analyst at Guohai Securities.

He pointed out that in terms of technology, after continuous improvement of blockchain technology, the traditional problems of small scale and low efficiency have been partially solved. Blockchain has developed mature in terms of performance, ease of use and operability, and can support large-scale commercial applications; In terms of supervision, blockchain laws, regulations and supervision system are gradually improved. Blockchain filing is conducive to the overall development of the blockchain industry. It is the first step in the standardization of blockchain technology, and more and more enterprises can formally apply it.

Insiders also told reporters that the blockchain has returned to rationality from excessive fanaticism and pessimism, and commercial applications will be accelerated.

The industrial blockchain has begun

At present, the participants in China’s blockchain financial industry can be mainly divided into three categories: first, financial institutions such as banks and insurance; Second, financial technology companies (such as ant financial, Jingdong digital, etc.); Third, technical service providers.

IResearch consulting recently pointed out that on the one hand, fintech companies export technology, on the other hand, they apply blockchain to their own financial business.

On January 8, at the above-mentioned media communication meeting, Jiang Guofei announced that ant blockchain will open the platform technical capability to the whole industry, especially to the real industry.

It is reported that the blockchain engine independently developed by ant financial has technically realized “double billion”. Ant blockchain can support 1 billion accounts, 1 billion transactions per day, and 100000 cross chain information processing capabilities (PPS) per second through expandable consensus and two-tier network design.

“The industrial blockchain has begun, and the inflection point is coming. Ant blockchain will promote the platform to be mature and open, and will cooperate with partners with rich industry experience to complete the digital construction of all walks of life.” Jiang Guofei said to our reporter, “Blockchain is the most valuable field in the era of industrial Internet. 2020 will be a year for blockchain to get rid of virtual reality and deeply integrate with industry.”

Industry insiders also pointed out that if the Internet changes the times from consumers, then the blockchain starts from the industry. Over the past year, mainstream manufacturers have also entered the industry to explore the implementation of blockchain applications, extending to finance, government affairs, manufacturing, supply chain management, warehousing and logistics and other fields.

Tencent Research Institute also believes that blockchain provides an important channel for the transformation from information internet to value Internet. It is not only regarded as an emerging technology with national strategic significance, but also an important driving force for the continuous transformation of old and new kinetic energy. It also promotes model innovation through technological innovation, thus leading industrial change. Through the “blockchain +” model, empowering financial and real industries, promoting the integration of blockchain and industry, and accelerating the construction of industrial blockchain will be the main melody of the development of blockchain industry in the next three to five years.

However, it is worth noting that blockchain has been controversial since its birth. Blockchain is very rich in applications and can be applied in almost all scenarios and fields. But do all scenarios and fields need blockchains?

“Only applications that benefit the real economy are truly valuable applications. Fundamentally, blockchain will move from virtual to real. With the development of digital economy, industrial collaboration is more frequent and complex, which will create more opportunities for blockchain.” Jiang Guofei believes that blockchain will change people’s production and life like mobile payment in the future, It will become the infrastructure of digital economy, like hydropower and coal, and sufficient existing productivity, means of production and production relations.

In addition, according to different application scenarios and user needs, the industry roughly divides the form of blockchain into three categories: public chain, private chain and alliance chain.

Bao Youchen previously predicted that 2020 will be a year for the centralized implementation of blockchain applications, and alliance chain will be the main way of implementation.

Our reporter noted that in November last year, ant financial services launched the open alliance chain and opened the public beta in the form of invitation system.

“At present, it has been fully tested and is expected to be fully launched in February this year,” Jiang Guofei told reporters.
