Joseph Lubin, founder of ConsulSys, and Zhao Changpeng, CEO of Binance who appeared on the list of Forbes’ richest cryptocurrency in 2018, were not shortlisted this time.
— [XT interpretation] In 2020, there were 2,095 billionaires on the list, less than 2,153 in 2019.

4. Dynamics| State Commission for Discipline Inspection of the CPC Central Committee: Blockchain contains huge transformative power
The website of the National Commission for Discipline Inspection of the CPC Central Committee today published the article “The Transformative Power of Blockchain”. It is mentioned in the article that as information technology, blockchain contains a huge transformative power not only at the level of productivity but also at the level of production relations. Through repeated games, blockchain will play a role in standardizing the behavior of both sides of the game in credit construction, so that rational economic people can reduce transaction costs and rationally allocate social resources, thereby maximizing social welfare.
— [XT interpretation] Blockchain technology establishes a credit information database including all social members (legal persons and natural persons) and makes it public to the whole society, so that both sides of the game have more public information of each other, and repeat the game on the basis of cooperation for a longer time. This kind of information database will enable one side of the game to better establish its reputation, and the other side of the game to better understand itself. The credit system built on the blockchain can provide all kinds of education, contracts, certificates, etc., and through the blockchain records, it also avoids all kinds of “my father is my father” circular proofs.

It is a new encrypted digital asset with transparency and anonymity of a zero-knowledge proof algorithm. Equihash algorithm and PoW are used to build a distribution mechanism suitable for general computer mining. The total amount issued is the same as Bitcoin, totaling 21 million.
It is considered to be the representative of the 2nd generation of cryptocurrency because its design ideas, functions, features and program source code are significantly different from Bitcoin. Nextcoin(NXT) was born on November 24, 2013. Its source code is brand-new, rather than modifying a few parameters of Bitcoin’s source code. Its function is also quite different from Bitcoin’s, which uses the proof of stake (POS), rather than the proof of work mechanism (POW) of Bitcoin, and boasts many other interesting functions.
