In order to prevent and control the spread of the epidemic and the need for enterprises to return to work and production, since this year, new retail, telecommuting, online collaboration and other new formats and new organizational methods have been used on a large scale. More and more people will come to the collaboration, efficiency and convenience of remote online collaboration. For this reason, many enterprises have begun to adjust their processes and organizational structures to adapt to it.
Yu Jianing, President of Huoyuan University and vice chairman of the blockchain special committee of China Communications Industry Association, said that “crisis” and “opportunity” always coexist, and the industrial recovery after the epidemic may be an opportunity for industrial transformation and upgrading. This change is of great significance. It is not only an expedient measure to deal with the epidemic situation, but also an important opportunity to accelerate the digital transformation of various industries and promote the transformation of enterprise organization.
He said that in the future, innovation and transformation will become the just need for enterprises to survive. The “centralized” organizational form with corporate system as the core is likely to gradually reduce, and the new large-scale cooperation mode with platform, community and online will gradually become the mainstream. The blockchain is the most critical emerging information infrastructure to realize large-scale distributed cooperation. In the process of fighting against the epidemic, blockchain has begun to show its skills, especially in the complex scenario of multi-party cooperation. Driven by this wave of innovation, blockchain applications will enter the fast lane.
“Blockchain + government affairs”: strengthening epidemic prevention and control
It is understood that in terms of epidemic big data management, Julu County of Hebei Province and Xinhuanet jointly launched the epidemic prevention and control big data management platform. After the data is uploaded to the platform, the whole network synchronization and security encryption are realized based on the blockchain technology, which greatly improves the efficiency and security of data acquisition, and the non tamperability of the blockchain also enhances the credibility of the data.
After the data of the platform is confirmed, it can be traced back to the whole process, providing credible data support for epidemic prevention and control, providing decision support for the government to implement policies accurately, providing objective and comprehensive basis for the work evaluation of various departments, and also being used for analysis by third-party organizations afterwards.
The “smart secondary school” platform used by Linfen street in Shanghai has been used in 20 communities, serving more than 20000 people, involving 688 businesses and more than 3000 people returning to work. The platform is based on blockchain technology, using electronic signature and background storage, which can not be tampered with.
The platform has five functions: Mask reservation, registration back to Shanghai, health punch, visitor registration and community care. Within 5 minutes after the platform went online, 1200 families made an online appointment to buy masks, reducing the risk of cross infection caused by queuing up to buy and receive masks. After integrating all kinds of scattered data to form “big data”, the neighborhood committee can pay attention to the families who do not return after the festival, and formulate personnel investigation scheme, which is targeted and effective. Moreover, after the data is linked, the behavior track can be clearly displayed, and the changes before and after the epidemic can be displayed after a large amount of data is accumulated.
“Blockchain + big data”: help to resume work management
The novel coronavirus pneumonia has disrupted the rhythm of normal production and operation in many industries and regions, especially small and micro businesses in industry and service sectors, which face greater market and capital pressure. Therefore, under the premise of ensuring good epidemic prevention work, orderly promoting the resumption of work and production of enterprises has become a top priority.
But the premise of returning to work is the effective management of personnel, and the most critical is the “penetrating” real-time data management ability. Blockchain is not only a “machine of trust”, but also a “machine of cooperation” and “machine of supervision”. One of the important functions of blockchain is to help achieve “penetrating supervision” and “fine governance”. Blockchain can skillfully help the transition of returning to work during this epidemic.
The “East Lake big data recovery intelligent management system” of Wuhan East Lake New Technology Development Zone is a prevention and control management system of enterprise return to work epidemic situation based on the characteristics of blockchain technology, which realizes the functions of enterprise return to work record declaration, monitoring and management of return to work employees, real-time acquisition of epidemic data, data security mechanism guarantee, etc., and guarantees data through blockchain technology and “trusted identity authentication” It can not be tampered with to ensure data security and privacy.
Based on the “Nansha City brain”, Guangzhou Nansha district epidemic prevention and control collaborative system uses information technology such as blockchain to collect and integrate all kinds of epidemic prevention information, such as key personnel, latest epidemic data, resource scheduling, etc., so as to open up the “data chimney” of various departments, guide personnel prevention and control, and promote enterprises to fill in epidemic prevention information through the enterprise resumption management function of the system The information management of epidemic prevention was realized.
“Blockchain + finance”: realizing financial precise service
Before and after the Spring Festival, many small and medium-sized enterprises are under the greatest financial pressure, and the epidemic situation makes the financial problems of some enterprises worse. Therefore, it is necessary to take targeted tax reduction and fee reduction measures for regions, industries and enterprises that are greatly affected by the epidemic, improve differentiated preferential financial services, and ease business difficulties. Such financial support can not be “flooding”, it must be precise policy, in order to achieve effective help and reduce the risk of inflation. As an important “financial technology”, blockchain can make a big show in this aspect.
At present, the pilot work scope of the cross-border financial blockchain service platform of the State Administration of foreign exchange has been expanded to 22 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities. The platform has completed a total of 15.9 billion US dollars of financing and loans, serving nearly 2500 enterprises, of which 75% are small and medium-sized enterprises. Hubei Province has been included in the pilot scope of the platform, and small and medium-sized enterprises will enjoy more preferential and convenient conditions in export trade financing and other financial credit support.
In addition, Beijing also proposes to build a supply chain debt and debt platform based on blockchain to provide right confirmation financing services for small, medium and micro enterprises participating in government procurement and state-owned enterprise procurement. On February 7, Haidian District of Beijing officially launched the supply chain financial service platform for small and medium-sized enterprises based on blockchain, and gave 50% discount to the benchmark interest rate to the enterprises carrying out the right confirmation financing business. The first novel coronavirus pneumonia and loan granted in February 14th after the completion of the online project were successfully established on the platform, which helped to support the government’s purchase contract, and helped the company to obtain 720 thousand yuan loan amount from the 100 bank and support the school’s long-distance education, and get the first loan of 440 thousand yuan. The whole process line operation was efficient and convenient, and reduced the risk of the spread of the epidemic under the offline business.
“Blockchain + privacy computing”: solving the problem of data utilization
The protection of personal privacy and the industrialization and large-scale application of data have always been the contradiction and problem faced by big data applications. In this epidemic, a large number of personal information and itinerary have been exposed, and some people have been maliciously harassed. For personal information, medical information and other privacy data, how to take into account the effective use of personal privacy protection and data, in order to give full play to the role of big data in the process of fighting the epidemic, has become an urgent topic.
This problem can not be solved without the frontier technologies such as digital identity and privacy computing based on blockchain. Because these technologies are relatively immature, they are not widely used in the fight against the epidemic. However, it can be expected that the relevant industrial tuyere will accelerate.
At present, there are distributed digital identity solutions in Weizhong bank’s blockchain, and the source code is all open source for free use by the society. In the future, the solution of distributed data management and trusted identity authentication based on blockchain can realize not only authorized disclosure with the user’s own knowledge, but also enable relevant institutions to track the user’s information reliably. This can not only protect privacy, but also ensure public safety.
Yu Jianing said that in today’s era when the blockchain technology is not very perfect and the infrastructure is not yet fully ready, the application of blockchain has begun to emerge and play a unique role in some epidemic related fields. It can be seen that the large-scale implementation of “blockchain +” is not far away. It can be predicted that after the full resumption of work and production, accelerating innovation, transformation and upgrading is bound to become a rigid demand. The development opportunities of blockchain and the landing of scenario applications are obviously speeding up. At the same time, the popularity of 5g also makes the value of blockchain significantly improve. More people will see and be willing to accept the changes brought by blockchain for production and life. There is no doubt that blockchain will become the “second curve” of enterprise innovation and transformation, and the era of industrial blockchain is coming.
