During a speech on the topic of, “The present and future of blockchain technology”, Star Xu, Founder of OK Group said, “in practice, blockchain is a distributed and immutable database, and the improvement of database technology makes an important role in facilitating the development of Internet in the last 20 years. In short, Blockchain is a distributed database technology with notable features such as cryptography and smart contract to enable a new class of applications such as payments, Internet of Things, data collection, and supply chain. Cryptography is a set of tools used in wallets, transactions, security and data privacy. By using cryptography, safe, immutable and trustless peer to peer transactions could be realized for the first time, as only owners will be allowed to access their assets. Smart contract is a protocol intended to digitally verify, facilitate or enforce the negotiation or performance of a contract. . . In conclusion, this is blockchain.”
