Regarding as a leading innovative player for the integration of IoT and Blockchain; the awards highlights the practical achievements and core competitiveness of in the field of blockchain-enabled carbon neutrality, affirming accolades widely from the industry.

For the past 4 years, has been laser-focused on the innovation of Blockchain and IoT fused technologies and has developed an open source blockchain application framework “BoAT” (Blockchain of AI Things) solution which is embedded into IoT devices. continues to discover new channels to empower IoT terminals to achieve trusted data on-chain and access to blockchain services”. In 2019, jointly founded the Blockchain IoT Module Alliance with domestic mainstream cellular module manufacturers. In 2020, jointly initiated Blockchain SIG working group under the RISC-V Foundation. In 2021, took the proactive approach of launching the first domestic industry and group standards for trusted blockchain access of IoT terminals. It is hoped that together with the industry ecosysmte partners, will assist in building a trusted digital infrastructure for a potentially trillion-dollar IoT data marketplace.

Shanghai Blockchain Technology Association is a first-class association in charge of Shanghai Association for Science and Technology. It is registered in Shanghai Municipal Administration of Social Organizations and jointly initiated by National Technology Transfer East Center, Shanghai East Scientific and Technological Achievements Transformation Co., LTD, etc. Our mission: to promote the healthy, rapid and orderly development of blockchain technology, create a safe and efficient ecosystem of blockchain, and strive to contribute to the building of Shanghai into an outstanding global city and global center of scientific innovation.

About is a technology start-up focusing on the integrated innovation of IoT and Blockchain. By combining its own rich resources in the IoT industry, has raised the standard for an open-sourced blockchain application framework BoAT (Blockchain of AI Things) with delivered via IoT chipset and module to enable IoT devices quickly implement trusted data on-chain and access the blockchain services. At the end of 2019, and nine mainstream cellular wireless module manufacturers jointly initiated the Blockchain IoT Module alliance, and successively released their own brands of BoAT blockchain module products. This resulted in hundreds of millions of IoT devices equipped with the capability of blockchain services access as a trusted entry of IoT+Blockchain application.’s vision is to leverage an alliance of global IoT vendors to empower them to tap the value of applications and data.

At the beginning of the project launch in the end of 2018, received angel investment from the IoT industry expert group and strategic investment from Wanxiang Blockchain. In December 2018, was awarded membership into ARM Accelerator Camp. In June 2019, emerged as the founding member of China Unicom IoT and Wanxiang Blockchain IoT+Blockchain Joint Innovation Center. In November, became a empowerment partner of Microsoft’s AI and IoT Lab . In August 2020, transitioned into Tencent’s Blockchain Accelerator program as the first member. In February 2021, joined RISC-V International as strategic member and initiated to form new Blockchain SIG (special interest group). In April, initiated 1st China technical requirements standards for trusted blockchain access of IoT terminals.
