Mao Haobo, founder and CEO of Haopu:
“Although blockchain technology is entrusted by the market and developers as the new generation of technology that could revolutionize the Internet, the blockchain network of Bitcoin or Ethereum could not entertain commercial demands on scale in terms of performance, security and compatibility.”
The huge gap between current blockchain products and real commercial application is where Haopu flourish as a bottom-layer technology provider.
