The Blockchain for Good Alliance (BGA) was officially launched on April 15 during the Blockchain Life Dubai event.

The BGA is a collaborative network of organizations, projects, and individuals that have pledged to utilize blockchain technology to address global social, environmental, and economic challenges. The organization has partnered with blockchain-based organizations, including Bybit Web3, Solana Foundation, Aptos, Moledao, Harvard Blockchain Club, ICP.Hub UAE, American University of Sharjah (AUS), Coineasy, Libera, Edu3Labs, Alchemy Pay, Bu Zhi DAO, and XueDAO.

The BGA aims to function as an incubator for blockchain technology by providing networking opportunities that connect builders with mentors, resources, and events. The organization’s website describes its mission to solve global challenges through the application of blockchain technology and collaboration between its partners.

A spokesperson named Abbie, a representative of the Harvard Blockchain Club, said in a statement that: “We are thrilled to be a part of the Blockchain for Good Alliance (BGA) launch. Through our commitment to exploring university initiatives such as establishing a blockchain publication repository and supporting BGA’s impactful projects, we aim to foster a culture of innovation and collaboration within our academic community.”

Moledao, a blockchain social platform that collaborates with BGA, views the alliance as a means to achieve mass adoption. They talked about it in a video posted on YouTube on April 14. Recently, Italian researcher Silvia Semenzin studied the idea of “blockchain for good” at the GRASIA Research Group, Institute of Knowledge Technology, Complutense University of Madrid. She published her research article in Sage Journals.

Semenzin noted that many initiatives aimed at using blockchain technology for social good are either driven by profit motives or are ignorant of the financial disparities between different classes. The Blockchain for Good Alliance will function as a non-profit organization, which should help address concerns typically associated with tech-based projects aimed at doing good.

China Partners with Conflux To Launch Public Blockchain Infrastructure Platform

The Chinese government has recently launched a new public blockchain infrastructure platform, which is being led by Conflux Network.

This “Ultra-Large Scale Blockchain Infrastructure Platform for the Belt and Road Initiative” platform aims to provide an underlying public blockchain for cross-border applications.

According to a post by Conflux Network in April, the main focus of this project is to create a public blockchain infrastructure platform that can support cross-border cooperation projects along the Belt and Road Initiative. It will act as a foundation for developing applications that promote collaboration across borders.

Conflux Network is a multichain blockchain ecosystem that is operated by the Conflux Foundation, also known as the Shanghai Tree-Graph Blockchain Research Institute.

The government has initiated a blockchain initiative despite China’s unfavorable stance towards cryptocurrencies. Since 2017, the Chinese government has been tightening its grip on the crypto industry by shutting down Chinese Bitcoin exchanges.

Despite the ban on crypto trading, 33.3% of Chinese investors hold a considerable amount of stablecoins, placing them second to Vietnam, with 58.6%. According to a December 2023 report by Vietnamese venture capital firm Kyros Ventures, traders in mainland China have found ways to bypass the ban on trading. The majority of investors in the country choose to trade on centralized crypto exchanges.

In 2021, Beijing banned crypto trading and mining and prohibited offshore exchanges from offering their services in the country. Before the crypto crackdown intensified in 2021, China controlled two-thirds of the total Bitcoin mining hashing power. Amid calls for greater industry scrutiny, China plans to amend its Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations to include cryptocurrency-related transactions.
