Revealed by the Ministry of Civil Affair in an action plan, the Chinese government intends to implement blockchain technology into the restructuring of the charity sector especially the charity tracking system.
While Crytpo is still banned in China, the MCA’s four-year project, is proposing to :“explore the use of blockchain technology in charitable donations, charity tracking, transparent management” .
The Ministry of Civil Affairs has further stated that the pool of experts and blockchain technology veterans working on the project would not only build the blockchain technological system for tracking donations but also : “build a tamper-proof charity organization information query system and enhance the authority, transparency and public trust of information publishing and search services.”
