As the international technology innovation hub of Guangzhou Province in China, Huangpu District and Guangzhou Development District are responding to the call for the China’s national development strategy of “blockchain +”. For instance: in finance, logistics, government affairs, intellectual property, industrial Internet, etc., the in-depth integration of blockchain technology with various fields of the traditional economy has been continuously enhanced to build a new engine for high-quality economic development.
At present, Guangzhou has cultivated four major carriers including Guangzhou Blockchain International Innovation Center, Huangpu Chain Valley, Yimi Blockchain Maker Space, and Blockchain Future Space, basically forming an industrial cluster of the entire blockchain industry chain. The value of the blockchain is not in speculation, but in solving social problems and serving the economy. Therefore, there are two main directions for the blockchain to adress with, one is to solve the pain points of people's livelihood, and the other is to support the real economy.
