Blockchain Implementation should be Market Oriented and Demand Driven
Blockchain has been around for nearly ten years, yet it did not become popular until the recent two years. This technology is powerful, whether it is applicable to all industries remains a question to many. “Not all blockchain technologies are suitable for combining with traditional industries,” Anndy Lian explained, “You have to find suitable solutions and usage in blockchain technology that can address the pain points in traditional industries, so that they can realize their value. It is not sensible to just follow blindly!”
Projects with Real Commercial Value Attract Real Capital
Blockchain projects come out every day, as Guo Dazhi from Huobi Research Institute said: “There are many projects, but most of them are very similar, the only thing that differentiate the quality projects from the rest is the actual use cases.” he added: “The project needs to find its own way.” What he says is a common pain point in the blockchain industry.
Now blockchain projects are coming out everyday, many of them are in the name of blockchain only to get money. Such phenomenon occurs because the society is lack of understanding of blockchain and the blockchain technology, and most people when they think of blockchain the only thing come to their mind is token speculation. However, those who eventually stand out are projects which are doing the real works and have actual use cases. By finding the real demand of the market and taking such demand as the direction for the project development.
Alliance Capital have expressed their views on this issue. He mentioned that most people think winter has come for the finance sector so many think that it is money that holds back the commercialization of the blockchain. This is not true. Blockchain projects should understand their clients’ business logic, advantages and disadvantages, and the market they target at. In fact, what lacks in the capital market is never the capital, but good projects. Capital companies are always open to listen to blockchain projects with a good vision, high commercial value and have sheer determination to drive implementation of use case studies.
