China is slowly, but surely moving it’s blockchain game up a notch. A brand new and independently developed blockchain-based ID system for Chinese cities is now in the works.
Yesterday, the Chinese tabloid Global times reported that the brand-new blockchain ID system was launched simultaneously by three institutes in the city of Shijiazhuang.
This new system will be assigning a unique digital ID to the Chinese smart cities and thus aim to improve the connection and data sharing between them.
Chinese Smart cities have been able to begin applying for their own ID codes since the beginning of the week.
The director of the Zhongguancun Industryand Information Research Institute of 2D Code Technology Zhang Chao, stated that the system was developed in China from the get go and added:
“We will distribute and manage the system independently in China via a unified distribution rule, a resolution of distributed storage and tamper-resistant code.”
For China, the development and transformation of smart cities have been a top priority for quite some time now. Chinese smart cities are proving to be a complicated challenge because of the increasingly urbanized population.
In order to for smart cities to grow and develop, they must integrate and develop various new technologies to make the majority of municipal operations efficient.
This includes self-driving cars, energy-efficient buildings, renewable energy and fast and reliable communication systems.
