Julian Gordon’s WeChat “Hasn’t Stopped Buzzing” Since Xi Jinpin Went Pro-Blockchain

Speaking at BlockShow Asia 2019, Hyperledger Vice President APAC Julian Gordon described the personal impact that the Chinese president’s pro-blockchain remarks have had on him: 
“Xi Jinpin made that announcement 10 days ago. The reason I know that is because my phone is sitting on my desk — my WeChat started buzzing and hasn’t stopped since.” 
Hosted by the Linux Foundation, Hyperledger is an open-source blockchain project aiming to be a hub for open blockchain development across industries. It has gathered companies from different backgrounds such as IBM, Airbu, and J.P.Morgan to further advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. 
Hyperledger is also collaborating with Chinese companies in areas like trade finance, letters of credit (L/C), and e-visibility. For example, they are working with top Chinese banks like China Minsheng Bank and China CITIC Bank to remove the need for SWIFT in China’s domestic L/C settlement. 
Expectations for the Chinese blockchain market are quite high. Referring to big Chinese companies like Alibaba and Tencent, Gordon said that they were always amazed by Chinese entrepreneurship. 
Hyperledger is a permissioned blockchain project, which is different from a permissionless with anonymous participants. Yet Gordon claims that the two different ecosystems can coexist. Last June, the Foundation joined Hyperledger.
