China Scraps Blockchain Funding Center

China Scraps Blockchain Funding Center

The Chinese government has just scrapped its blockchain funding center, insisting on regulations before going forward with anything blockchain.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has called for domestic regulation as part of an effort to foster the development of the technology. The CCP’s official media made clear that the government’s stance is to integrate blockchain technology, while also warning of illicit activities that come with it.

A recent report stated the entity as saying that “Blockchain technology is still very immature. We must be cautious about speculation on this concept and separate technology-based innovations from those with a fund-raising purpose. To better promote and utilize the blockchain technology, the government should implement strengthened policies and regulations.”.

China aims to solidify plans in the future for the opening of the center; the full report gives a solid argument for explanations on blockchain technology applications in various industries and financial services.

This marks another restrictive move from China after the banning of initial coin offerings in 2017. It was, however, suggested that regulations would be a proactive step in the right direction, with China hoping to initiate frameworks that help the public and business sectors.

Meanwhile, China’s central bank has claimed that cryptocurrencies will be at the top of its agenda in 2018.

The Peoples Bank of China (PBoC) has called for a conference on the financial development of blockchain. Fan Yifei, vice governor of the PBoC, has a detrimental stance on the currency, praising its progress so far, but wanting to highlight the fact the integrity of the Chinese Yuan stays intact.

Fan also stated that the agency would reinforce its regulatory measures both internally and externally.
