As a promising innovation, blockchain technology is expected to be further developed and deployed to address challenges across the globe. The world has recognized the transformational value of blockchain innovation. Through the distributed ledger technology, blockchain-based solutions will create digital identities for 1.5 billion people who are marginalized and not able to participate in the economic growth due to the lack of economic identity. It will also reduce the monitoring and reporting costs in the process of achieving global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which used to be billions of dollars. Additionally, blockchain will facilitate the integration of renewable energy generation into consumption, through the development distributed peer-to-peer energy transaction technology, which also makes entrepreneurs and the public very optimistic about the future of blockchain technology application. This is also the reason that we decided to launch the Responsible Blockchain World Championship (RBWC).
