On May 23rd, the third World Conference on Hangs will be held. This year marks the 40th anniversary of reform and opening up. The theme of this year's Hangzhou Business Conference is “The New Era, New Hangzhou Business, and New Brilliance”. It will have the most extensive influence, the most leading and the most contributing to Hangzhou's economic and social development and industrial investment promotion. Winners of “Faith Hunting Merchants”, “Outstanding Hangs Merchants” and “Golden Phoenix Hangshang” Awards were commended. The first line of finance and economics launched a special plan to focus on the candidate Hanghang of the current Hangzhou Business Conference. The recent exposure of Canaan, a Hangzhou company, is a bit high. The company’s main business blockchain and chips are recent hot spots. Together with last week, the company just submitted a prospectus to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. It is expected to become the first share of Bitcoin Mining Machine. According to the data, this company, which is already the world's second largest manufacturer of bitcoin mining machines, was founded five years ago and the leadership team is very young. On May 15, Jia Nan Zhizhi submitted a prospectus to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. The data shows that Canaan's total revenue in 2017 was 1.308 billion yuan, net profit was 361 million yuan, net profit rate was 27.6%, and its profitability was amazing. Known by the outside world, Jia Nan is a self-developed bitcoin mining tool, the Avalon mining machine. This is China's first bitcoin mining machine. Bitcoin mining machines, in general terms, are computers used to earn bitcoin. These computers generally have professional mining chips, and users can get the corresponding bitcoin through it. Our company is the core team and the first in the world. With the introduction of ASIC mining machines, we have experienced one or two industry cycles, and we have lived to today's market share. The world ranks second, with an occupancy rate of around 20%. The current main income of Canaan is from the mining machine sales, of which 95% of the sales revenue comes from the domestic market. In the next step, they will infiltrate the business into artificial intelligence, such as smart home, driverless and so on. At present, a KPU artificial intelligence chip is under continuous testing. Compared with other products of the same type, their chips are more about placing artificial intelligence operations locally, and the biggest advantage is that the data is Processing is more efficient and information is safer. For example, a coffee machine, now is program control, the future is to recognize your face, you know what flavor you like, how to use it, these scenes are often encountered by everyone, a better human experience. When Jia Nan was founded, he chose the headquarters in Hangzhou. Shaoxing’s Kong Jian was flat. As a Zhejiang native, he was undoubtedly the most affectionate to Hangzhou. The company's R&D department is set up in Beijing. Kong Jianping believes that compared with Beijing, Hangzhou is more tolerant to entrepreneurs, and the market environment and policy services are more humane. Hangzhou has always been a very good place for the environment. If you have a market, I think there is a lot of capital and talent pooling, so it is also a place suitable for the company's rapid development, but I think the most important thing is the Hangzhou government's service to the entire company market. I did very well. I saw that many departments (commitments) only ran a mile. In the process of the entire capital operation, the government has demonstrated a very efficient and pragmatic attitude in helping the company in the process of overseas architecture. Ascension, I think this may be the trait of Hangzhou unlike other cities. As a young entrepreneur, Kong Jianping's experience is not smooth sailing. He once made a product, based on a personal business card of a domestic social platform, was blocked by the platform because of excessive traffic, and finally, he decided to terminate the startup of this product. He has had this experience and has a very deep understanding of entrepreneurship. Don't think that a business will succeed once, and entrepreneurship is more about the embarrassment of something, not purely the pursuit of money. From the government level, to give entrepreneurs more tolerance environment, as long as the entrepreneur and his team can stay here, slowly, these projects fail for the first time, the second failure, maybe the people inside are slow Slow training will incubate other successful projects, which require the entrepreneurs themselves to have some continuous iterative capabilities, with the government's inclusive environment, and the entire socially inclusive environment.
Distinguished leaders, distinguished guests, everyone good night, the year of artificial intelligence and blockchain in 2017, many artificial intelligence companies have gotten money, and many participants in the blockchain industry have also earned several small goals. I see a lot of them here. Canaan also launched a new generation of 16-nm blockchain computer - A8, also invested a lot of research and development strength to develop artificial intelligence chip KPU, is expected to enter the mass production stage in a few months. Under the prosperous times, we also saw speculation and speculation around the blockchain this year. Such a disruptive technological revolution and a change in production relations, such as the blockchain, will inevitably lead to a huge bubble, and only the wave and the bubble of the mountain and tsunami will be worthy of the blockchain, although some countries and regions There are some more radical or closed policies, just like the beginning of the birth of stock companies and stock exchanges 400 years ago. Under the bubble, we see that traditional industries and mainstream funds are running into the blockchain. Blockchain technology is considered to be the next generation of disruptive core technology and production relationship changes following steam engines, electricity, and the Internet. In the past 300 years, human beings have experienced the era of steam engine and industrial revolution; in the past 20 years, the arrival of the Internet and mobile Internet has revolutionized the traditional economy. Today, the combination of artificial intelligence and blockchain is the key to unlocking the digital economy era, which will bring about tremendous changes. In the future, artificial intelligence is productivity: the breakthrough of deep learning algorithms makes machines more capable than humans. The development of cloud computing and chips makes computing ubiquitous. The arrival of the Internet and IoT has produced massive amounts of data. The algorithm, computing power, and data trinity digitize the traditional physical world and ultimately realize the Internet of Things. Today, everyone hears that the hottest autopilot, smart home, industry 4.0, and smart medical care are the evolution of artificial intelligence to the real economy. The blockchain is also the production relationship of the digital economy. It provides a distributed collaborative idea to re-establish the relationship between production, distribution, exchange, and consumption of all players in the digital age. The blockchain perfectly connects the physical world and the virtual world, ultimately finding the best balance between fairness and efficiency, monopoly and disorder, and building a more perfect world. If the steam engine releases people's productivity and the Internet completely changes the way information is transmitted, then the blockchain will completely change the way human values are transmitted. The blockchain is expected to lead humans from the contract society to the smart contract society, and the blockchain can perfectly connect the physical world and the virtual world. Artificial intelligence and blockchain, these two things together are no longer a matter of simple production and lifestyle changes, but the evolution of human civilization and the meaning of life. The digital life has driven the Internet in the past 20 years. The digital life drives the next generation of the Internet. We believe that "AI and blockchain can iterate human civilization"! Today, letting everyone's crazy digital currency is only the first attempt of the blockchain in the currency field, is the blockchain 1.0 era. In the future, the combination of artificial intelligence and blockchain will reconstruct various business fields, create a new digital economy, and finally iterate human civilization. I heard many people present that this is an exciting time. Sleeping is a waste of time, but I still hope that everyone can work and work together for 50 years in this social health. These two days have been in Hangzhou for 2018. The first snow, this year's snow is earlier than in previous years, I wish you a good harvest in the new year! Thank you for coming! thank you all!
