- Blockchain Drives into the Fast Lane
In the forum, the founder of 8BTC, Chang Xia, shared his brilliant opinion on “Parallel World of Blockchain – Blockchain Mirrors Internet”, and went back blockchain’s history, including digital currency, as one of the most mature applications of blockchain, strode forward rapidly from worthless at its birth in 2009 to the current worth of USD 600+ billion.
The advent of blockchain has also contributed to the “evolution” of asset, which have evolved from equity asset and securitized asset to “blockchainized asset”, with transfer mode evolving from transfer as a whole to splittable transfer and then infinite splittable transfer, and registry from centralized authorities, central servers and organ of authority to registry by public or private keys.
Next, Chang Xia elaborated on the hot issues about whether digital currency would be replaced by alternatives, why underlying blockchain protocol is more valuable, why mining, and the differences between transactions based on blockchain and Alipay. In his opinion, these issues essentially reflect the mirror relation between the atomic world and the bit world. For example, everything on the Internet is replicable, while on the blockchain network all transactions are recorded in chronological order, open and transparent and unchangeable, ensuring that everything in the blockchain network is the ONLY one, just as it is impossible to have two identical leaves in the real world. He finally mentioned the concept of “Bitcoin Days Destroyed”, which equals to the product of the transaction amount and the days of this amount’s receiving date and actual spending date. The traditional credit rating system is the mode of simply accumulation, and it’s easy to have the phenomenon of credit hype, which can be easily avoided by introducing the credit rating system of “Bitcoin Days Destroyed” based on blockchain.
