At the same time, another highlight is the funds management system. Every poverty-stricken user can own an account and track the progress of every allowance received through a mobile app. The money attribution and settlement is recorded on blockchain and therefore fully transparent. Government’s credibility is strengthened in this way.
Finally, data on the blockchain-based system will be integrated into the “social and cloud” system to ensure authenticity and immutability of the “social and cloud” platform. Eventually the sovereign blockchain trust system could be established with the features like transparent data, distributed storage, livelihood digital currency, community consensus mechanism, smart contract.
