Chinese Government Will Start Using Blockchain Technology To Collect Taxes & More!

in #cryptocurrency4 years ago (edited)

Breakthrough for Blockchain: The Chinese Government has just announced that it will be using Blockchain Technology to collect taxes and for electronic invoices!

Just in my last post, I was writing about the growing importance of Asian markets in the crypto world, and now I've just come across the news that China is looking into using Blockchain Technology.
China has been very hesitant with cryptocurrencies in the past to say the least, so seeing that they finally acknowledge the benefits of Blockchain Technology is a great step forward.
China even has plans to launch their own national cryptocurrency in the near future!

With a reported GDP of over $10 trillion in 2016 alone, China is the world's largest economy.

So testing the benefits of Blockchain Technology on such a large scale could become very interesting!

Since the People's Republic of China was founded in 1949, it creates a macro-economic plan called "Thirteenth Five-Year” National Informatization Plan and revises it every 5 years.
And this time, Blockchain Technology was mentioned in it too!

Today, an article from miaocaiwang revealed that:

“The Chinese government will utilize blockchain technology for social taxation and electronic invoice issuance matters.”


Miaocai Network is an invoice- and taxation system operator certified by the State Administration of Taxation.

It's an important link in the "National economic data security system".
On their website, Miaocai announced that it will team up with the “government affairs chain GACHAIN” to create an electronic tax- and invoice system -

and also making use of Blockchain Technology.

“China’s tax collecting procedures feature slow tax reporting times and insufficient coordination. By making use of the unrivaled advantages of BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY, together with the GACHAIN team, we are integrating core finance and tax business into GACHAIN. By taking advantage of GACHAIN’s ability to regulate, trace back, and circulate documents easily, prevent falsification, high rate of concurrency, and external interface benefits, we can cover the entire process workflow from electronic invoice generation through the end of the process without increasing costs for those involved. Our corporate clients, while enjoying the benefits of streamlined processes and ease of use, simultaneously go through the tax reporting process, and taxation authorities can monitor the route of every electronic invoice in real time. The public can also check the validity of every document, thus simplifying the entire business process, increasing convenience and transparency, and putting a curb on invoice-related problems.”

-Jie Du, Chairman of Miaocai Network


The Chinese tax system could benefit from Blockchain Technology in several different ways.

By combining tax collection with Blockchain Technology, tax evasion could be prevented.
China has reported a tax revenue of $2.4 trillion last year, which makes it number 2 in the global ranking (after the USA).
Some major online stores like Taobao, WeChat or Tmall haven't even been integrated in China's taxation system yet, so when blockchain technology enables electronic invoices and tax agents, these type of business could contribute a lot more to the national tax revenue.

“I think that the key is to have government bodies acknowledge what’s in the blockchain, such as copyright ownership, the attributes of business organs, and property transactions, but with the prerequisite that they must conform to laws and regulations. When these two points are fulfilled, the blockchain and real world can be linked seamlessly. GACHAIN is designed and developed with this concept in mind. In other words, GACHAIN is – Blockchain as Government Affairs.

Real-world applications for Blockchain Technology - apart from just cryptocurrency

I'm very passionate about this topic, and have written several topics about it already: Blockchain Technology offers countless benefits in many different industries, apart from cryptocurrency or even the financial sector!

People still associate blockchain only with Bitcoin, but it's so much more.

Blockchain Technology can be used to ensure food safety by tracking the supply chain, it can help us save the environment by providing transparency and eliminating environmentally unsustainable factors, it can be used to increase the technology in certain technological products (for example self-driving cars) and so much more!

Due to its secure and transparent nature, Blockchain Technology enables to document anything with a timestamp, without room for cheating or alterations.


I'm more than certain that Blockchain Technology has the ability to change our everyday lives, and I'm excited to see how more and more businesses will realize its benefits in the future!

Another well done article.
I am very pleased to see you writing so much about crypto these days as your style of posting is very easy and enjoyable to read through/digest.
MOST posts on crypto are done by tech geeks and not very digestible for most people. I feel like you could have one of the best crypto followings around if you focused on it more.
Keep up the good work. you have my support!

Thank you very much, I'm glad to hear that!
I also feel like there are a lot of crypto articles which are very hard to understand for people who aren't especially tech-savy. That's why I like to keep mine quite simply so everybody can be up to date about the latest events in the crypto world!
Thanks for your compliments, I'll definitely keep it up!

I agree and am glad to hear you know whats up and are going to continue to share the valuable content!


I have invested in a little bit of NEO, will be adding up from time to time. I think it will be their main cryptocurrency.

Yes, Antshares / NEO is currently on the rise. We'll see how it develops in the future!

Yes one cryptocurrency to look out, I think it will become valuable in the future.

With that being said,Antshares aka NEO is china' first blockchain so check it out.
It was priced at $7 last week and currently trading at $10.I personally can see it hitting the $100 soon.
Watch out China is the dark horse when it comes to crypto ;)

Thank you very much for pointing it out. Do you think there will be a competitive coin to NEO, which should be watched?

Within the china' crypto sector I've mainly been watching 'NEO'
Also small investments in 'EOS' here and there won't hurt 👍😎

Cheers for your response :)

True! I actually wrote a post about Antshares a while back, but the price was way lower back then. I'm interested to see how much popularity it will gain!

Excellent idea. Smartphones and blockchains are going to change the world as we know it.

blockchain is fast developing and hence people are using it

Cool post! 😜

If governments really do accept and utilize blockchain technology, I wonder what the potential is for them to go towards a single blockchain across countries, rather than multiple country-specific blockchain networks, like the various currencies we have now.

Hey @sirwinchester , would love to offer you a slot on my podcast sometime.
