Qingfeng Shan talked about Bitcoin and blockchain from a developer perspective. He explained the structural design of Bitcoin and blockchain. The lecture was translated to the Japanese audience by his friend.
Shan told 8btc:
“Bitcoin and Blockchain in Japan didn’t receive much attention as China did. Many of them probably heard of Bitcoin or blockchain for the first time. The Q&A session was pretty quiet. Some audience who can speak Chinese told me that it would be better to deliver the lecture in English. That’s why I see lots of potential here.”
It might be a small step for Shan, 8btc is happy to see the exchange of knowledge between China and abroad and willing to bridge the language barrier.
Blockchain is created without boundaries.
