A new article from China’s Central Party School affirms the nation’s commitment to blockchain technology and stresses its need for governance.
The Central Party School of the Community Party of China is among the top institutions in the country which trains officials for the Community Party of China. It boasts some 1,600 students, and the president for the school is a member of the country’s Politburo. Therefore, we should take notice when the school mentions blockchain technology since it is clearly an indication that it is being taken seriously. That is exactly what took place recently.

China’s Central Party School Affirms Blockchain Tech

A new article published by the Central Party School stresses the importance of the country adopting blockchain technology. Titled “Government Governance Practices of Blockchain Technology,” it argues that applying the technology for everyday governance will benefit the nation. The article was recently tweeted by Alice Crypto (@AliceolaCrypto). In particular, the piece argues that it is important for China to establish its own “sovereign blockchain” that is free from foreign interference. The article also cites blockchain technology as potentially reducing corruption and abuses of power. It mentions Estonia as an example of a country that has successfully implemented blockchain technology across many different sectors.

‘Blockchain not Cryptocurrency’

You may recall that China made headlines last October when President Xi said the country must lead the world in blockchain development. Since then, the country has been aggressively pursuing this policy despite developments stalling due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis. The country has taken blockchain technology so seriously that calling it a ‘scam’ is now effectively banned.  China Blockchain Bitcoin BTC The party line on blockchain technology in China has been ‘blockchain, not cryptocurrency.’ As BeInCrypto has reported, Chinese state TV has affirmed this stance repeatedly. Although the Chinese government remains relatively hostile to cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin is still trading over-the-counter in the country—sometimes even at a premium.  Now that blockchain is being affirmed at the highest level of the Community Party of China’s school system, it is safe to say it will likely remain a national priority.
