As the most cutting-edge informationachievements continue to be integrated into the financial industry, distributed ledger technology based on has emerged and has been explored and implemented in some scenarios (such as cross-border payments).
1. Introduction to blockchainscenarios
Blockchain technology has moved from pure technical discussion to the stage of application. A large number of blockchain-related companies and teams have emerged at home and abroad. A few companies have explored unique application scenarios based on their own business, but more companies are still in the stage of continuous exploration and verification.
The appropriate application scenarios of blockchain must be analyzed based on the characteristics of blockchain technology itself.
Blockchain can provide features such as decentralization, non-tampering, safety and reliability without introducing third-party intermediaries.

Blockchain is believed to facilitate data transactions and flows, providing safe and reliable support. The threshold for the credit reporting industry is relatively high and requires the joint efforts of multiple resources.
4. Resource sharing
