韩国承诺拨款310万美元资助区块链试验

2020-3-22 15:50

 

本周早些时候,韩国科学和信息通信技术部(MSIT)和国家IT产业促进局(NIPA)宣布了“区块链技术验证(PoC)支持项目”。该计划邀请来自区块链公司的应用程序,并将为测试用例提供技术和财务支持。


区块链仍然是一项新兴技术,许多项目虽然雄心勃勃,但并没有投入生产。几周前,Wipro的一项研究发现,在它研究的来自不同行业的项目中,只有14%处于生产状态。MSIT和NIPA的项目旨在解决区块链在早期阶段面临的技术问题,并支持它们实现商业生产。


“我们计划支持国内专业公司在区块链市场的早期阶段迅速发展,使区块链生态系统得以复兴,”MSIT的Park Yoon-kyu信息和通信政策官员说。“PoC(概念证明)支持业务发现各种区块链案例和创造性的区块链服务。”


该计划对任何组织开放,并将在4月6日前选出9个项目。每项提案将获得4.5亿韩元(约合36.2万美元)的奖励,总限额为39亿韩元(约合310万美元)。NIPA将为选定的公司规划和原型区块链服务模型,并帮助设计、实现和演示用例。


NIPA和MSIT去年也开展了类似的活动,挑选了11家公司。这导致了5项专利申请,没有版权注册,3个谅解备忘录,和2个投资机会。韩国区块链公司fletcher的临床试验数据管理系统(eCRF系统)是政府机构支持的项目之一。


除了政府,韩国企业也在探索区块链的多种应用。国家为区块链企业提供税收优惠以促进创新。该国的国防采办计划管理局(DAPA)正在为武器采购开发一个可互操作的区块链系统。


韩国电信有食品可追溯性、物联网安全和运营商间支付等项目。


在这个国家有三个独立的区块链身份认证项目。“最初的DiD协会”由Nonghyup银行、SK电信、LG U+、三星等公司组成,正在为用户开发一种自主的身份。


韩国金融电信与清算研究所(KTFC)推出了用于金融服务的区块链数字id。ICONLOOP是另一家韩国公司,它推出了自己的DiD服务“my-ID”。

 

Earlier this week, South Korea’s Ministry of Science and ICT (MSIT) and the National IT Industry Promotion Agency (NIPA) announced the ‘Blockchain Technology Verification (PoC) Support Project’. The initiative invites applications from blockchain firms and will provide technical and financial support for testing use cases. 

Blockchain is still a nascent technology, and many projects though ambitious, do not make it into production. A few weeks ago, a Wipro study found that only 14% of the projects it studied from different industries were in production. The project by MSIT and NIPA aims to solve technical issues faced by blockchains in the early stage and support them in reaching commercial production. 

“We plan to support domestic specialized companies to grow rapidly in the early stage of the blockchain market, enabling the blockchain ecosystem to be revitalized,” said Park Yoon-kyu Information and Communication Policy Officer at MSIT. “PoC (proof of concept) support business discovers various blockchain cases and creative blockchain service.”

 The initiative is open to any organization and will select a total of nine projects by April 6. Each proposal will be awarded up to 450 million Korean won ($362,000) with total limit of of 3.9 billion Korean won ($3.1 million. NIPA will plan and prototype blockchain service models for the selected companies, and help with design, implementation and demonstration of the use cases. 

NIPA and MSIT ran a similar initiative last year and selected 11 companies. This resulted in five patent applications, none copyright registrations, three MoUs, and two investment opportunities. Korean blockchain firm FLETA’s clinical trial data management system (eCRF system) was one of the projects supported by government agencies. 

South Korean enterprises, as well as the government, is exploring several blockchain applications. The country is offering tax breaks to blockchain firms to promote innovation. The country’s Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) is developing an interoperable blockchain system for arms procurement. 

Korea Telecom has projects for food traceabilityIoT security, and inter-carrier payments, among others. 

There are three separate blockchain identity projects in the country. The ‘Initial DiD Association’, is comprised of firms like Nonghyup Bank, SK Telecom, LG U+, Samsung and others, is developing a self-sovereign identity for users. 

The Korea Financial Telecommunications and Clearings Institute (KTFC) has launched blockchain digital IDs for financial services. ICONLOOP is another Korean initiative which launched its DiD service ‘my-ID’.
