Events and Interviews:
1. Dr. Zhao Yong invited to attend Bitcoin Night
On June 23, Goldlinks' Chief Scientist Dr. Zhao Yong was invited to attend the third "Bitcoin Night - Believers Party", an event jointly organized by leading Chinese blockchain news portal Mars Finance, and Goldlinks.
At the event, Dr. Zhao presented a keynote speech entitled, "Back to Origin: From Credit to Belief". In his speech, he noted that the evolution of grid computing offers many lessons that are applicable to the development of blockchain technology. He indicated that both grid computing and blockchain systems are decentralized and asymmetrical, and that the architecture, middleware, and modules used in grid computing can also be used in blockchain infrastructure. Dr. Zhao added that the Goldlinks public blockchain will integrate grid computing technology to create a network that is more widely distributed.
Commenting on the launch of Libra, Dr. Zhao said that fundamentally, Facebook's new cryptocurrency will help drive the pivot towards a digital world, but will also impact the sovereign currencies of smaller nations. Dr. Zhao argued that universal gold-backed tokens could provide the building blocks for a fairer monetary system, and that the combination of physical gold and blockchain technology could lay down a more equitable foundation for the world's new economic architecture.
