The first document is a technology guide, the second is a policy for evaluating industrial blockchain applications. They define technology.
According to Wang, the guidelines envision many legal blockchain use cases, including digital fiat and China’s national digital currency.
Local newspaper 8BTC notes that there is no mention of decentralization and tokens in the documents. At the same time, the guide notes the role of the state in protecting the rights associated with digital currencies.
That is to 👉strengthen the protection of digital currency, network virtual property, data and other new rights and interests, give full play to the role of judicial judgment in guiding the value of property rights protection. #Bitcoin
