China to Use Blockchain for Real-Name Verification of 1.4 Billion People, Raises Data Privacy Concerns

China's national-level blockchain initiative, the Blockchain-based Service Network (BSN), has announced that it will use blockchain technology to verify the real-name identities of China's 1.4 billion people. The initiative, called RealDID, was spearheaded by China's Ministry of Public Security with the help of BSN. The RealDID service launch will enable users to register and log in to websites anonymously using DID addresses and private keys, ensuring that business data and transactions remain disconnected from personal information. This move is likely to spark concern among data-privacy advocates, especially as China's top social media platforms mandate content creators with over 500,000 or 1 million followers to publicly display their real names or those of their financial backers.

A blockchain bill passes the House Energy and Commerce Committee

A blockchain bill called the "Deploying American Blockchains Act" has been passed by the US House Energy and Commerce Committee. The bill will direct the Department of Commerce to "enhance the competitiveness of the United States in the deployment, use, and application of blockchain technology or other distributed ledger technology." The bill has not yet been approved by the full House of Representatives. Experts say that there is currently no corresponding bill in the US Senate, which is a major drawback for most cryptocurrency legislation this year. The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives is not eager to accept any digital asset bills and is generally believed to be unlikely to change its policy. The best option for such bills may be to negotiate and merge them with other efforts into larger and more valued legislation.
