In 2021, the industrial blockchain will form four major development trends
Huobi Research Institute, Tsinghua University Internet Industry Research Institute, and Blockchain Service Network (BSN) jointly released the annual report "Global Blockchain Industry Panorama and Trend Annual Report (2020-2021)" (hereinafter referred to as the "Report"), A comprehensive and profound analysis of the development of the blockchain industry in 2020, and a forward-looking forecast for the development of the industry in 2021.
In the report, Huobi Research Institute innovatively proposed the "blockchain application thermal model", which is based on company popularity (number of companies, investment events), research popularity (academic hotspots, patent applications) and network popularity (media reports and search indexes). ) A total of 16 indicators in 3 dimensions to evaluate the current application of blockchain in different fields, and finally found that "blockchain + finance", "blockchain + payment" and "blockchain + data services" are in 2020 The most popular blockchain application field.
Yuan Yuming, Dean of Huobi Research Institute, emphasized that the significance of proposing the blockchain application heat model is that it provides insights into the current “sought after” degree of various blockchain applications in the market from multiple data dimensions, so as to provide the current The application direction decision provides a certain reference. Of course, the model itself is relatively new, and there may be some shortcomings. It will continue to be optimized in the future.
In addition, the report predicts that the industrial blockchain will accelerate its implementation in 2021 and form four major development trends.
Trend 1: In line with the development of "new infrastructure", blockchain will start to integrate with other new technologies. After the concept of "new infrastructure" was put forward, blockchain, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, etc., as representatives of new technology infrastructure, belong to the information infrastructure. At the same time, under the development strategy of "smart cities" and "urban brains", other technologies The integration of blockchain technology has become a new trend.
Trend 2: Government affairs, supply chain, finance, data and other sectors have become popular tracks, and their landings are accelerating. Entering 2020, the issue of efficiency gains in multi-party collaboration scenarios in the global economic system affected by the epidemic. Government affairs involve cross-regional and cross-sectoral information management efficiency, and issues such as the efficiency of capital and capital flow in the financial market have triggered heated discussions, which have accelerated " The application of "blockchain + government affairs", "block chain + supply chain" and "block chain + finance" has been implemented.
Trend three is the rapid development of supporting facilities such as all-in-one machines, underlying network facilities, and blockchain chips. The report pointed out that whether it is an all-in-one machine, blockchain chip or underlying network facilities, all of them focus on the pain points encountered in the development of the current alliance chain, reduce the threshold for blockchain use, and improve the stability of the blockchain. With the gradual improvement of related facilities, the development of domestic industrial blockchain will be more rapid and stable, and related industries will also undergo changes under the advancement of alliance chain technology and supporting facilities.
Trend four is the budding development of asset chaining, and digital securities may be the leader in global asset chaining. The report pointed out that promoting the digitization of physical assets will help promote asset cost reduction and efficiency enhancement, and build a complete standardized asset supervision system to strengthen supervision, thereby forming an innovative digital ecosystem. The digitization of assets based on blockchain technology, that is, assets on the chain, has the advantages of openness, transparency and traceability, flat autonomy, improved efficiency, and intelligent automatic non-tampering.
