December 31

Feng Han was invited by the Hong Kong SAR Investment Promotion Agency to discuss the Elastos.

January 8

Feng Han attended the first gathering of best-selling authors hosted by Machinery Industry Press.

January 12

Feng Han participated in the first Shaanxi Innovative Ideas and shared his thoughts on Blockchain-based National Wealth”.

Feng Han said mentioned as follows, “Any improvement in human cognition has changed the traditional model of wealth conception, which has also greatly changed the status of human wealth.”

Adam Smith changed the human mindset once. With the free market and the invisible hand in the market, people gradually realized that human beings need to create a lot of global wealth and credit consensus for a better free market which leads to an extremely prosperous financial market.

Today, the blockchain is destined to change the human mindset again, and start the next era of wealth consensus based on mathematical calculations. It is a new financial era that originated in individual big data.
