Peking University (PKU) is one of the most important and prestigious universities in China, a country that has invested great amounts of money in improving its university system. A few days ago, it held an event sponsored by Tron called “TRON to The Future, Blockchain Technology and Ecosystem” co-organized by DOGI which is a global blockchain game crowd-funded incubator platform. More than 200 students attended the event and received it sympathetically.
The current year has been contrasting for the crypto community. The market has been a nightmare. And nevertheless, the blockchain industry has grown more than any other year in its young history. Adoption is near for many currencies.
But most of the public remains unaware of the technology and its consequences and implications. That’s why Tron held this event at Pekin University. Mass adoption will never happen before mass awareness, and these kind of events are all about bridging that gap.
Many of the blockchain’s industry’s opinion leaders showed up to share their visions for the future and the blockchain’s possibilities. Among these personalities were: Cong Li, TRON’s developer community VP; Yongquan Xiao, founder of DOGI, a global blockchain game crowd-selling platform; Binsheng Wang, special-term tutor for finance at the Graduate School of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences; Quan Li, partner of Evolution Capital; Yufei Ding from Huobi Research Institute; Xiao Wu, the producer of Cell Evolution; and the blockchain research team of Peking University — Junyan Chen, a 2007-class PhD student, as well as Kunpeng Ren, a Master student and lead of blockchain research group at Peking University.

Tron’s VP for the developer community, Mr. Cong Li, explained the unique features developers can find in Tron’s ecosystem and talked as well about the project’s development history.
Mr. Li also talked about Tron’s Project Atlas which is all about the way in which the BitTorrent network (the world’s largest decentralized P2P network) will be integrated into Tron’s blockchain. He was very clear in that the average BitTorrent user will be greatly benefited as BT joins the blockchain.
Also at the event was Binsheng Wang who serves as a special-term tutor for the Graduate School of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. He talked about the social changes that the investment logic in the blockchain market can bring about.
He said that the outbreak of blockchain campaigns in the contemporary world in which we are entering an “era where information transmission requires almost 0 cost”, “the popularity of blockchain has transformed the traditional information Internet into a valued Internet.”
Empowerment was also at the heart of Yongquan Xiao’s presentation, as DOGI’s director for blockchain games “blockchain has established a set of stable and transparent rules. The rules themselves set up concrete constraints on the number of items in the game, the production mechanism, the growth mechanism of players and the gameplay mechanism.
These rules are becoming the rules that players can truly trust and rely on.” DOGI is always practicing and exploring innovative methods as a blockchain game crowd-selling platform. It’s evolving and finding a balance between domestic and foreign game projects.
Then came the time for a roundtable. The participants were Felix Li (Tron’s ecosystem director), Quan Li (Evolution Capital), Ran Wei (8 Decimal capital) and Yufei Ding (Huobi Research Institute). They talked about reshaping the blockchain’s applications and value.
The second half focused on practical applications. Xiao Wu, who is a very well-known blockchain game developer, used “Cell Evolution,” his first work, and Tron’s first dApp (called “The last Trip”) as examples on blockchain games that are both spirited and games.
A Ph.D. student at the university, Junyan Chen, talked about other innovative options for the blockchain (slide-chain and pan-blockchain ecosystems). Another student, Kunpeng Ren, shared his thoughts about the public chain dApp development.
As the event finished, Tron announced a $100 investment in the next three years to bring momentum into the development of blockchain games. Tron’s contest for decentralized application developments officially started a couple of days ago, and it will be open until next January 9th.
