For his part, Xi Jinping delivered a speech while presiding over the study. He noted that the application of Blockchain technology has been extended to digital finance, Internet of things, smart manufacturing, supply chain management, digital asset trading and other fields.
Currently, the world’s leading countries are accelerating the development of Blockchain technology. China has a good base in the field of Blockchain.

Without a doubt
Continuing his speech, Xi Jinping emphasized that it is necessary to strengthen the orientation and regulation of Blockchain technology.
Also, Xi Jinping noted that the relevant departments and their responsible leaders should pay attention to the status quo, as well as the trend of the development of Blockchain technology.
Another important point to which he referred, is related to improving the application and management of Blockchain capabilities. This would allow Blockchain to help develop the digital economy and promote the country’s economic and social development.

Despite being his first comments openly, Jinping advanced Blockchain approval as leader of the technological revolution.
Since a decision of the Chinese central bank, the People’s Bank of China (PBoC) in 2017, cryptocurrencies are banned in the country. However, the agency is developing its own stable central bank currency (CBDC) and is likely to be launched soon. Other countries such as South Korea and Peru have analyzed the issue.
