China’s Wenzhou Residents Bolster the Idea of a ‘Blockchain Village’

China’s Wenzhou Residents Bolster the Idea of a ‘Blockchain Village’

According to regional reports from China, a village located within the Wenzhou, Zhejiang region called Yuedong has been gathering attention due to its receptiveness toward cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. In consonance with social media posts on Weibo, roughly 60 percent of the residents in Yuedong know about cryptocurrencies and many of the villagers have invested as well.


Wenzhou’s ‘Blockchain Industrial Village’

The mountain village of Yuedong is now known for its friendliness toward digital currencies. On March 7, people shared pictures of the hamlet, which local residents have dubbed the blockchain industrial village, on Weibo. Local columnist lylian Teng also confirmed the story and spoke with a villager, surnamed Lin, residing there. Lin explained that Yuedong has recently become very popular and receives a lot of crypto visitors. The report added that a majority of the Yuedong villagers embrace cryptocurrencies because an individual named Yang Linke was born in the village. Linke was the cofounder of Chinas first bitcoin exchange Btcchina and Yuedong residents hold him in high regard.

Another interesting fact about the village is that a river runs through it whose guardrails have cryptocurrency logos etched into the stone. Because Yang Linke is an early cryptocurrency adopter, hes managed to convince many young people in his hometown that cryptocurrency solutions are the future. Yuedong villager Lin estimates that 60-70 percent of the residents in Yuedong know about blockchain technology or are invested in digital assets. Roughly 10 percent of residents living in the Wenzhou region have devoted time to bolstering blockchain technology, Tengs report noted. Speaking about his hometown and sharing pictures of the guardrails with cryptocurrency symbols etched in stone, Yang Linke wrote to his followers on Weibo:

The 1,000-metre long stone guardrail has around 10 different cryptocurrencies carved into the rock.

Villager Lin explained that the guardrails have around 10 different cryptocurrencies carved into the stone which includes coins like BTC, ETH, ETC, BNB, and ONT. The 1,000-metre long stone embankment carvings were funded entirely by crypto donations and villagers in the city are also in the midst of building a blockchain theme park. Residents of the Wenzhou region are well known for business and money-making skills and theres also an Eos block producer in the village called Eos-Wenzhou. Many of the cryptocurrency investors who reside in the prefecture-level city in southeastern Zhejiang province have been called the Wenzhou Gang.

News.Bitcoin.com reported on the Wenzhou Gang back in December of 2017 because at the time many of the Wenzhou investors were aggressively investing in cryptocurrencies and real estate across China. Back in 2008, a Wenzhounese merchant surnamed Chen started a real estate group with 20 friends and they all purchased properties as a team.

Yuedong is the hometown of Btcc exchange cofounder Yang Linke.

However, when the cryptocurrency bull run of 2017 happened, the Chinese government made real estate property policies extremely strict, so Chen and crew decided to sell all the real estate and profits for cryptocurrencies. According to the Yuedong villager surnamed Lin, officials from local Wenzhou government think highly of the blockchain industrial village initiative.
