Chinese Blockchain Industrial Park Opens With $1.6 Bln Partially Govn’t-Backed Fund

A 10 bln yuan (around $1.6 bln) Blockchain innovation fund was announced today, April 9, during the opening of the Hangzhou Blockchain Industrial Park in China, local news outlet Lie Yunwangreports.

The Xiongan Global Blockchain Innovation Fund is financed by the Yuhang District Government – 30 percent of the total funds are “government-guided” – the Future Science and Technology City Administrative Committee, and the Hangzhou Haoyu Investment Management Co, which will manage the fund.

Hangzhou Haoyu Investment Management is made up of Handan Investment and INBlockchain, whose previous projects have included EOSQtumZcash, and SIA. The article reports that two partners at INBlockchain, well-known Bitcoin (BTC) investor Li Xiaolai and Blockchain “celebrity” Lao Mao, will be two of the managers of the fund.

Ten Blockchain projects from around the world were “successfully contracted” at the opening ceremony of the Hangzhou Blockchain Industrial Park, and the Zhejiang Shimang Blockchain Strategic Development Research Institute was also established. The three Blockchain-related entities – the industrial park, the fund, and the research institute – will give academic and financial support to the development of Blockchain technology in Hangzhou.
