Huawei very much into blockchain

The company also had plans to introduce its product, blockchain services, to the Latin American market.
A top executive at Huawei made a call during a speech to other companies for a partnership with the company towards the development of 5G technology applications. A decision which he promises to be highly rewarding for all involved. He also addressed the company’s commitment to the 5G revolution and is working towards becoming a global leader in the technology.
It is also the Chinese government’s aim to become the global leader in the blockchain sector. Nothing is left to chance as the country’s leadership has been engaging in aggressive blockchain development and innovation over the last few years. In fact, China’s President Xi Jinping himself has called for greater levels of research and investment into blockchain.
