On the morning of July 29, 2022, the blockchain sub-forum of the 2022 Open Atom Global Open Source Summit was successfully held in Beijing Yichuang International Convention and Exhibition Center. The event was hosted by Baidu Superchain, co-organized by China Unicom Digital Technology, Qulian, Treemap Chain, etc. Li Ming, Director of the Blockchain Research Office of China Electronics Standardization Institute, Xiao Wei, General Manager of Baidu Blockchain, and Peking University School of Computer Science Professor Chen Zhong, director of the Blockchain Research Center and other guests attended the forum.
At the forum, the guests discussed the development status of China’s metaverse and blockchain technology, Web3 applications, the application of blockchain in the judicial field, NFT digital collections, and many other topics. How can my country establish a digital economy paradigm in the metaverse era Issues such as blockchain technology and compliance of NFT applications became the focus of the guests.
Li Ming said that Web3.0 is currently a series of requirements on principles and mechanisms, and may become a new Internet paradigm in the future. The mechanism of Web3 will combine the new generation of information technology to provide information services, while the metaverse will build a large new scene to promote information consumption. He also pointed out that compared with foreign countries, the current domestic metaverse industry lacks a production engine layer like Epic’s Unreal engine. If this part is lacking, it will pose a very big challenge to China’s entire metaverse industry in ten or twenty years. Regarding the development of the metaverse industry, his suggestion is, firstly, to unify the consensus of the whole industry, secondly, to explore the method of technology integration, thirdly, to innovate application scenarios, and fourthly, to strengthen the governance of science and technology ethics.
Chen Zhong said that in order for my country to take the lead in the innovation of Metaverse and Web3.0, the construction of digital identity, economic system, three-dimensional space and infrastructure based on the alliance blockchain should attract more attention from the industry. If China wants to make leading innovations in the Web 3.0 era, it must have a breakthrough in governance, and the key to this breakthrough is to promote the two-wheel drive of blockchain “tools” and “governance”.
The XuperCore open source working group announced the establishment of a world-class open source technology solution
At the sub-forum of the summit, Zhang Heng, deputy director of the Brand Development Department of the Open Atom Open Source Foundation, Xiao Wei, general manager of Baidu Blockchain, representative of the working group, Liu Quanbao, CEO of Zhilian Technology, and Pan Dong, CEO of Shengjian Technology, also announced XuperCore Formal establishment of the Open Source Working Group.
It is understood that XuperCore is the core technology of Baidu Super Chain, which was officially released at the inaugural meeting of the Open Atom Open Source Foundation Blockchain Working Group in October 2020. Baidu super chain XuperChain is positioned as a new generation of blockchain operating system, while XuperCore is developed independently from XueprChain and is the foundation of the entire operating system. Xiao Wei said that Baidu Superchain is “not a chain”, and XuperCore is used to help enterprises and developers define their own chains.
Xiao Wei said that at the beginning of the establishment of the XuperCore project, there was no working group, which was a bit idealistic, but now it needs to have a starting point and a goal to fight for, that is to make XuperCore a leading open source technology solution in China and even in the world. To this end, they unite customers, developers and volunteers to form working groups to make things better.
Pan Dong, CEO of Shengjian Technology, said that he hopes to truly promote the construction of large-scale blockchain infrastructure in China under the guidance of the Open Source Foundation and with manufacturers like Baidu under the requirements of regulatory compliance.
