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.
