Chinese companies rush towards blockchain

Ever since President Xi Jinping praised blockchain technology, several Chinese corporate entities have started experimenting with blockchain technology. The government is especially favorable towards blockchain startups that are emerging by the dozen in the country.

The biggest blockchain project in the country is that of the People’s Bank of China, which is working on a digital yuan. There is another state-owned entity called Bank of China that is using blockchain technology to issue bonds. According to local business news outlet Sina Finance, the bank has already issued bonds with 20 billion yuan (about $2.8 billion) from small and micro enterprises on its blockchain.

TikTok owner ByteDance is also working on a blockchain venture with a govt. owned entity. It recently acquired part ownership of a new company that develops blockchains and AI. The firm invested 10 million yuan in acquiring a 49% stake in the new company. Shanghai Dongfang Newspaper, a state-owned media firm, owns the rest of the new venture.
