COVID-19 Aftermath: Blockchain Technology 冠状病毒预期结果:区块链技术

Global pandemic to push through the obstacles of blockchain adoption? 全球瘟疫是否会突破区块链采用的障碍?

Blockchain technology’s unique characteristics of verifying, securing and sharing data make it ideal for managing multi-party, inter-organizational, and cross-border transactions. Over the past five years, enterprises around the world have vetted the technology with thousands of proofs of concept, but live deployments have yet to fulfil because partners using blockchain as a shared ledger have to agree on IP rights, governance, and business models. Government regulations have impeded its widespread use especially during crises.

It has taken the COVID-19 pandemic to push through the obstacles to blockchain adoption. Economies are in freefall. Unemployment rate is on the rise. Companies are going out of business. Pension funds are suffering losses. Consumer confidence is disappearing.

The pandemic has revealed the weaknesses in supply chains, the inability to deploy resources where they are most needed to address the pandemic, and difficulties in capturing and sharing the data needed to make rapid decisions for management. Blockchain solutions that have been under development for years have been unleashed to address these challenges.

The World Economic Forum recently released a Blockchain Deployment Toolkit to address the issues that arise in blockchain implementation projects. The toolkit represents key success and risk factors for the deployment of a blockchain solution within the supply chain context. Organizations can use the toolkit to support more responsible blockchain deployments, de-risk early adoption, and ensure careful consideration of unintended consequences.

If the Chinese economy continues to lag after the pandemic outbreak, it could send shock waves through global supply chains when they’re already in crisis mode. Materials shortages and bottlenecks could even prolong the pandemic. It would make it more difficult for manufacturers to fulfil orders for healthcare essentials such as personal protective equipment and other medical supplies.

The course of COVID-19 and its enduring economic impacts look unpredictable as ever. As companies rush to aid the COVID-19 response or fight to keep their doors open, they require trust in suppliers and partners and transparency into supply chains and contractual obligations. Luckily, blockchain excels on both fronts.

For companies operating far outside the scope of the pandemic response, blockchain has something valuable to offer at this moment. Thanks to improved transparency, buyers can seek out ethical sources that minimize their environmental footprint or abide by fair labor practices.

As consumers make tough choices on how to spend their limited disposable income, they will naturally gravitate toward companies that do the right thing — ones that act ethically. Being able to satisfy that demand could help savvy merchants make it through this crisis.

Blockchain technology was one of the top tech trends for the past two years. The potential adoption of blockchain technology attracted attention from governments, businesses, capital markets, and researchers. There wasn’t a problem that blockchain and its related technologies couldn’t solve.

Many of the earlier blockchain projects hoped to start a revolution, to challenge or disrupt traditional centralized institutions and systems. However, the end result isn’t as optimizing as it is supposed to be. In the current situation, solutions that leverage blockchain technology in more modest and practical ways, have the potential to become beneficial to counter the impact of coronavirus.

China is a leader in leveraging blockchain in the fight against Covid-19. Around 20 blockchain applications were launched to address Covid-19 over the course just two weeks in February, including an online screening system that securely manages health records and a platform that supports the management, allocation, and donation of relief supplies.

In a post-coronavirus world, we will need to change the conversation and re-risk the economy. Blockchain technology and smart contracts have the potential to optimize the investment rules and regulations regarding private equity funding. When we program the possibility of “intelligent risk-taking” by both accredited and traditionally non-accredited investors into the computer protocols for private equity investments, blockchain not only disintermediates the investment and trading process but will also create higher liquidity in the market.

Smart contract protocols might then contain requirements regarding the obligation to follow an investment course, allowing only accredited investors to invest into private equity. Other possible scenarios such as, non-accredited, but sophisticated individual investors can only invest in certain sectors based on their expertise, or investments restricted to certain types of industries.

The economic downfall forces investors and key institutions to re-risk the economy and blockchain technology has the potential to play an essential role in building the future of the economy. It may not be the revolution envisaged by the blockchain evangelists in the early days, but it could still prove enormously significant in the post-virus recovery.

区块链技术独特的验证,保护和共享数据特性使其成为管理多方,组织间和跨境交易的理想选择。在过去的五年中,世界各地的企业对技术进行了数以千计的概念验证,但是实时部署尚未实现,因为使用区块链作为共享账本的合作伙伴必须在智慧产权,治理和商业模式达成共识。

新冠病毒瘟疫带动了采用区块链的障碍。经济自由落体。失业率正在上升。公司倒闭了。养恤基金正在遭受损失。消费者信心正在消失。

新冠病毒瘟疫揭示了供应链中的弱点,无法将资源部署到最需要解决大流行的地方,以及难以捕获和共享快速做出管理决策所需的数据。已经开发了多年的区块链解决方案已经发布,可以应对这些挑战。

世界经济论坛最近发布了一个区块链部署工具包,以解决区块链实施项目中出现的问题。该工具包代表了在供应链环境中部署区块链解决方案的关键成功和风险因素。组织可以使用该工具包来支持更负责任的区块链部署,降低早期采用的风险,并确保仔细考虑意外后果。

如果中国经济在大流行爆发后继续落后,它可能会在全球供应链已经陷入危机的情况下在全球供应链中传递冲击波。材料短缺和瓶颈甚至可能会延长大流行。这将使制造商更加难以完成医疗必需品的订单,例如个人防护设备和其他医疗用品。

新冠病毒的发展历程及其持久的经济影响似乎一如既往地不可预测。随着公司急于协助新冠病毒应对或努力保持开放状态,他们需要对供应商和合作伙伴的信任,以及对供应链和合同义务的透明性。幸运的是,区块链在这两个方面都表现出色。

对于远远超出大流行应对范围的公司,目前区块链可提供一些有价值的东西。由于透明度提高,购买者可以寻找道德来源,以最大程度地减少其环境足迹或遵守公平的劳工做法。

当消费者在如何使用有限的可支配收入方面做出艰难的选择时,他们自然会倾向于做正确的事情的公司-具有道德行为的公司。满足需求可以帮助精明的商人度过这场危机。

区块链技术是过去两年中最热门的技术趋势之一。区块链技术的潜在采用引起了政府,企业,资本市场和研究人员的关注。没有一个区块链及其相关技术无法解决的问题。

许多早期的区块链项目希望引发一场革命,以挑战或破坏传统的集中式机构和系统。但是,最终结果并没有达到预期的最佳效果。在当前情况下,以更适度和实用的方式利用区块链技术的解决方案有可能变得有益于对抗冠状病毒的影响。

中国是利用区块链对抗新冠病毒的领导者。在2月的短短两个星期内,大约有20个区块链应用程序被发布以应对新冠病毒,其中包括安全管理健康记录的在线筛查系统和支持救灾物资管理,分配和捐赠的平台。

在冠状病毒感染后的世界中,我们将需要改变对话并重新冒险。区块链技术和智能合约有可能优化有关私募股权融资的投资规则和规定。当我们将认可的和传统上没有认可的投资者将“智能冒险”的可能性编程到私募股权投资的计算机协议中时,区块链不仅会分散投资和交易流程,还将在市场上创造更高的流动性。

然后,智能合约协议可能包含有关遵循投资过程的义务的要求,仅允许合格的投资者投资私募股权。其他可能的情况,例如未经认可但经验丰富的个人投资者只能根据他们的专业知识在某些领域进行投资,或者仅限于某些类型的行业进行投资。

经济衰退迫使投资者和关键机构重新冒险,而区块链技术有潜力在构建未来经济中发挥重要作用。也许这并不是早期区块链布道者所设想的革命,但在新冠病毒后的恢复中仍然可以证明它具有巨大的意义。
