Hong Kong Blockchain Week 2020: Setting DeFi and Blockchain Trends for 2021

gbafNews28

November 17th to 19th 2020, speakers and participants will assess the economic and technological rollercoaster of the year 2020,and will discuss whether DeFi will change the game for fintech.

HONG KONG, Oct. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — During a week-long virtual event, speakers from institutions, businesses, regulatory bodies, innovative companies will evaluate the outcomes of 2020 for blockchain, technology and economy, and deliver valuable predictions about what will be trending in the nearest future. 

Hong Kong Blockchain Week 2020/Block O2O Global Virtual Summit 18 Nov
Hong Kong Blockchain Week 2020/Block O2O Global Virtual Summit 18 Nov

Hosted by The NexChange Group, Hong Kong Blockchain Week is co-organised by Hong Kong Cyberport, the main regional technology hub driving the innovation force and nurturing a growing digital community in Hong Kong.

"Blockchain technology has become more widely adopted and increasingly pivotal in various areas of application, such as the financial services industry. The recent Digital Currency Electronic Payment (DCEP) initiative by the People’s Bank of China has put Blockchain and Crypto back on the radar screen. Home to the largest FinTech community in Hong Kong with well over 300 FinTech start-ups and companies in the community, Cyberport is pleased to be powering Hong Kong Blockchain Week to examine the latest developments of blockchain and showcase Hong Kong’s capabilities in this area. Our goal is to draw blockchain talents together to exchange ideas, to co-create business opportunities as well as to lead the city in embracing blockchain," said Peter Yan, Chief Executive Officer of Cyberport.

Attendees will follow the experts’ discussions on such hot topics shaping the global agenda such as fintech, investment, and digital assets. Here, Dan Morehead, CEO of Pantera Capital, notes: "Digital assets have out-performed nearly all other asset classes year-to-date as unprecedented monetary and fiscal stimulus drive up the prices of things whose quantity cannot be eased. We strongly believe we are in the early stages of a large bull market fueled by both a powerful global macro tide and growing fundamentals in the underlying technology."

Quickly gaining traction, DeFi has become the center of attention throughout most of 2020. Decentralised Finance has undoubtedly disrupted the whole ecosystem of DLT-based financial services. From Yield Farming in trading, to DAOs and stablecoins, to NFTs (non fungible tokens) in asset tokenization and gamification, DeFi has shown interesting endless possibilities and applications which made it one of the hottest trends of the year. 

"With decentralization at its core the blockchain space was built for unprecedented times like these," said Justin Sun, Founder of TRON and CEO of BitTorrent. "The Crypto community has succeeded in rapidly pivoting to a virtual approach to conferences making it accessible to an even wider audience. I was looking forward to attending this year’s Hong Kong Blockchain Week, and hope to see you all there."

After the core event which is the Block O2O Global Virtual Summit set for November 18th, organizers prepared a DeFi special: a whole DeFi Day will be held on November 19th, featuring virtual discussions, workshops and livestreams. 

Yat Siu, Co-founder and Chairman, Animoca Brands, Founder and CEO, Outblaze: "As the COVID-19 pandemic continues worldwide, Hong Kong Blockchain Week 2020 will allow global blockchain leaders and investors to safely discuss the latest developments, opportunities and solutions in today’s most exciting field of technology. We are especially looking forward to the evolving discussions about the many benefits of non-fungible tokens for the general public."

As one of the most anticipated events for blockchain and fintech, Hong Kong Blockchain Week 2020 enjoys a rich agenda of associated events, including an online ceremony of the world’s first international TADS Awards 2020 on November 18th, celebrating the Tokenized Assets and Digital Securities industries by recognizing and honouring significant contributions worldwide.

Open-sourced Blockchain Technologies Bring Back Cross-border Tours between Chinese Mainland and Macao

gbafNews28

SHENZHEN, China, Oct. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — From September 23 onwards, Chinese mainland resumed issuing visas for visitors to Macao. Thanks to the mutual recognition system of Macao blockchain health code and Guangdong health code launched in May, mainland Chinese tourists can apply and use Guangdong health code to verify their health status when entering Macao. Up to date, more than 17 million people have cleared customs between Chinese mainland and Macao using the blockchain system. The average time of receiving, transforming, and generating the health code for the first time is only 100 seconds. And it will only take less than 3 seconds to complete the procedure when traveler clears customs again.

In May, Serviços de Saúde de Macau (SSM) and Macao Science and Technology Development Fund (FDCT) became the first to establish a blockchain-based health code system to fight the epidemic – Macao blockchain health code. It serves as an electronic pass for residents to access public places. It is a coherent part of Macao’s epidemic prevention measures and is later extended to add the mutual recognition mechanism with the Chinese mainland’s Guangdong health code system. Due to the epidemic, Macao suspended tourist visa application in January 2020. The establishment of Macao blockchain health code and the mutual recognition mechanism with Guangdong health code greatly improves the efficiency and accuracy of information verification across borders. It proves to be an effective solution to bring travel between Chinese mainland and Macao back to normal.

Macao blockchain health code is implemented based on China’s open-source blockchain platform FISCO BCOS and WeIdentity for reliable information verification across organizations.

Mutual recognition of health codes across jurisdictions has a major challenge to overcome – the information security and privacy protection regulations in both Chinese mainland and Macao. Health authorities in Chinese mainland and Macao need to verify the health information submitted by users crossing the border and yet they are not supposed to exchange data directly with each other to stay in compliance with their corresponding regulations. The way WeIdentity solution works – IDs and personal health data are encrypted to verifiable digital credentials signed by the issuing authorities and recorded on the consortium blockchain network serving the participating organizations. Users transmit data to the receivers directly via a secured communication channel. Receivers will be able to verify the integrity of the data received by comparing with the corresponding digital credentials as recorded on blockchain. Such a blockchain-based solution on one hand offers a robust data verification mechanisms among trusted parties, while at the same time ensures that the generation and the use of the Macao health code fully comply with the Personal Data Protection Act of Macao.

In addition, the mutual recognition mechanism enables the seamless conversion of health codes for the users without the need to fill in personal information repeatedly on different platforms, offering great convenience and ease of use for cross-border travelers.

With FISCO BCOS and WeIdentity, a robust solution is created to overcome the challenge faced by health authorities and border controls around the world and apparently offers an answer on how to enable cross-border travel once again during the time of a pandemic.
