China Central Television (CCTV), the country's primary state broadcaster, has said the economic value of blockchain is "10 times more than that of the internet."
In a segment named "Dialogue," aired Sunday night through the station's Finance Channel, CCTV host Chen Weihong featured an hour-long discussion that was for the first time dedicated to educating its wide audience-base on the concept, potential and risks of blockchain technology.
The conversation also featured prominent figures from the blockchain industry in both private and public sectors including Don Tapscott, the well-known author of "Blockchain Revolution."
Other speakers included Chen Lei, CEO of cloud network giant Xunlei, and Zhang Shoucheng, a physics professor at Stanford University and founder of Danhua Capital, a venture capital firm that invests in blockchain technology.
