The first official World Blockchain and Internet+ Summit 2016

 

The first official high level government organised blockchain summit.

2016 World Blockchain Summit organised by the Ministry of Industry & Information Technology (MIIT) has concluded successfully, marking the first ever dialogue between the CPC party leadership, government and industrial experts.

I delivered the keynote presentation on the first day and closing speech on the second day as the Secretary General of World Blockchain Foundation.

After the blockchain dream team comprising Adam Vaziri, Stephen Demeulenaere, Thomas Glucksmann and Joseph Toh made their marks on the first day, Jon Southurstcontinued the excellent performance by sharing the brief history and trend of blockchain from the eyes of a professional journalist.

All in all it is a significant milestone reached in the progress of blockchain technology. After all it is the introduction of decentralised concept to one if the most centralised power in the world.

由中国国家工信部主办的 2016 世界区块链暨互联网+ 峰会圆满结束!
峰会首日出席的首长是 第十届全国政府副主席李蒙;第二日出席的首长是 第十一届全国政协副主席厉无畏,充份显示出国家对这项科技的重视度,尤其是在10月18日发布区块链白皮书后。

The Chinese Government initiated this historic event after the Ministry of Industry & Information Technology (MIIT) issued a Blockchain white paper in 18th October 2016.

Oh, about the price hike in bitcoin, is it our fault again? Hmmm… you be the judge of that.

Blockchain ? Blockchain is not just a technology

Blockchain is not just a technology
Blockchain is also a philosophy

Just like internet
One would not likely to go far in the industry without first possessing an internet thinking
Similarly in the blockchain era one would less likely to achieve greatness unless he/she first acquire a blockchain mindset or cultivate the blockchain spirit

Open, P2P, decentralization, distributed…
All the essence that truly unleash the true potential of internet!

在互聯網時代,最重要的不是甚麼網站,不是甚麼網絡平台,更不是甚麼大數據,而是互聯網思維!
沒有互聯網思維,無論如何努力發展互聯網事業皆徒然。

邁入區塊鏈時代,最重要的不是比特幣,不是哪個國家或銀行接受它,更不是甚麼技術或功能,而是區塊鏈思維!
忽略區塊鏈思維,不管如何投入研發技術皆毫無意義。

開源 + 點對點 + 去中心化 + 分布式⋯⋯
真正發揮互聯網潛能的,就是區塊鏈。

 

Bitcoin World Tour – South Africa (III)

 

First, a visit to a salon with a bitcoin vending machine inside! Located in Kyalami Shopping Centre, Midrand, Johannesburg.

Although the general adoption of bitcoin is less than satisfactory, the potential remains very positive indeed.

Thanks to Kreean Singh who had gone to great lengths to organise a meetup (or TED talk as they say) in Joburg on a Monday morning!

Farzam Ehsani is the first banker who expressed his “affection” for Bitcoin Ambassador, because normally he is the most hated person by the banking industry. That’s why they call blockchain a disruptive technology, you know.

All in all Bitcoin World Tour South Africa has been a very fruitful one. As for the video, watch this space!

Bitcoin World Tour – Cape Town (II)

Thanks to Sonya and the local Bitcoin community for such a great reception.
Actually Bob (Mr Bitcoin) and Alice (Mrs Bitcoin) were the superstars everyone adores.
Local adoption was one of the key issues discussed and Ubud Bali was made a good reference.
Mind Asset Blockchain was also shared with Liza the first to try out the Mind Link. Thereafter others joined in the fun and had a test of their brain power.

It was nice sharing experiences and exchanging views with fellow enthusiasts.
All in all I see great potential in blockchain development in Cape Town.

Bitcoin World Tour – Cape Town (I)

It is a very fruitful day indeed for Bitcoin World Tour Cape Town!

Bitcoin ambassador gets to visit bitx.co the exchange where you can buy and sell bitcoins for South African Rand besides Malaysian Ringgit, yeah!

Thereafter just a stone’s throw away is Lunchworks where bitcoin is paid for lunch!
So if you have some bitcoins you can board the plane anytime to Cape Town and survive without any fiat in hand!

Video coming up soon.
Watch this space!
