“The blockchain community is not identical to the token community. Technology is neutral and the key is application scenario and industries.”
Meng Zhaoli, dean of the Jingdong Financial Research Institute, believes that
“If there is no real application scenario, blockchain technology will lose its vitality.”
“Blockchain technology not only has a wide range of application space in fintech, but also has a lot of exploration and practice.”
The 10 application scenario of blockchain in Fintech
According to the whitepaper, most of the 10 financial scenarios listed in the survey have three common features: multiple participation nodes, high cost of verification and long transaction processes. This results in problems such as low efficiency and high credit risk. Blockchain features like the distributed ledger, tamperproof and built-in contractual can provide solutions for security, trust, and efficiency in financial services.
The 10 financial application scenarios selected by the Whitepaper is based on consortium blockchain. Meng Zhaoli believes that compared to the public blockchain, consortium network is more mature and the cooperation of such network is based on commercial contracts, which suits better for financial applications. The consortium blockchain is the most feasible point of entry.
