“On the one hand, Web 3.0 can realize the self-management of identities on the user side, and on the other hand, it can also realize the self-management of addresses on the network resources side, really realizing the disintermediation of the end. -to-end access process”

While China is enacting a blanket ban on digital currencies, the country is quite optimistic about the underlying technology of blockchain and now the web3 infrastructure looks set to be the next big technology in focus for the nation.

It is also important to note that China is not necessarily a big proponent of decentralization or distribution of power. This is evident from their central bank digital currency development program, which is a blockchain-based digital currency, but the technology is highly centralized and the central government controls every aspect of it.
