Building the next-generation internet together | Elastos ECO Partner Conference 2019 Convened Smoothly

January 7th, 2019, Elastos held ECO Partner Conference 2019 with the theme “Building the Next-Generation Internet Together”  in Shanghai. Elastos gathered together with several partners, including Viewchain, ioeX, Bit.game, Hashworld, Titan, Shijiu TV, BiteTT/Elachat, DMA, TradingChain/DEX, Shu Lan/browser, Storeswift/IPFS, and Shan Lian to discuss the direction and trends of Elastos ecosystem development, potential cooperation between Elastos and its partners, and the perfect blueprint for building the next-gen internet together. A more comprehensive partner description and status update will be included in the upcoming end of year report.

At the meeting, Elastos founder Rong Chen gave a speech titled “Encouraging Open Source to Move towards a Republic,” during which he expressed that blockchain projects should focus on globalized development and open-source projects will help outstanding global developers work on the project together, thus creating steps towards globalizing the project. At the same time, Rong Chen also expressed his hopes that all Elastos ecosystem businesses would support and cooperate with each other; that as they looked for partnerships, they would give priority consideration to services provided by businesses in the ecosystem; that they would use ELA for their payments; and that everyone would work together to develop and expand Elastos; allowing all Elastos partners to benefit from being part of the project.

Elastos cofounder Feng Han gave a speech titled, “Second-Generation Internet Implements the Computational Thought of the Smart Economy.” In his presentation, he proposed a model for collateral-based currency issuance and talked in detail about the difficulties currently facing the blockchain industry, as well as why we need this kind of model, its benefits, and how exactly it should be implemented, providing new direction of thought for Elastos Ecosystem Partners, which prompted everyone’s enthusiastic discussion and acknowledgement. After that, Elastos Chief Architect Yipeng Su discussed the current direction and recent developments of Elastos for attendees and explored directions and thought for partnerships.

At the conference, the 12 partners each shared an overview of their projects and carried out in depth discussions with fellow partners. One of the highlights was the announcement that The Elastos TV Box manufactured by Shijiu TV currently has sold 900k units with Carrier installed and Viewchain currently has already registered 180k DIDs.

This successful meeting signifies the comprehensive development of the Elastos Ecosystem strategy and its relationship with  its partners from different areas of the blockchain industry. These varied functionalities are creating an Elastos ecosystem of services which are diverse, sustainable, and full of a modern vitality that will lead to a new internet.  We look forward to the new era of Elastos Ecosystem partnerships.
