In an interesting development that will be a big boost to the Bitcoin sentiment world over, a popular Chinese app with over 100 million active users has recommended a course on Bitcoin, blockchain, and smart contracts. The App is designed to teach “Xi Jinping Thought.”
It is worth noting here that during a meeting with the Politburo Committee on October 24, President Xi had highlighted the potential of blockchain to bolster the Chinese economy, while remarking on plans to spearhead the development of blockchain technologies. The Chinese President’s speech about the virtues of blockchain technology proved to be a trigger for the price rise across the cryptocurrency market. The next day, the Bitcoin price went through the roof to hit a historic rally of over 42%, just in a matter of hours.
Besides, reports suggest that China, which is now officially bullish on blockchain technology, is now censoring anti-blockchain sentiment. Articles saying blockchain technology is a scam are now banned, reports say.
Meanwhile, Xuexi Qiangguo, a Chinese App primarily designed to teach Xi Jinping Thought, the political theory derived from Chinese President and Communist Party General Secretary Xi Jinping, has recommended a course focusing on Bitcoin and blockchain.
According to reports, Xue xi Qiangguo, which has more than 100 million active users as of October, now has a recommended course focusing entirely on blockchain, which contains Bitcoin & Ethereum lessons. The App has courses from over 500 universities and claims to have more than 16 million registered users. The course covers an overview of blockchain, distributed consensus, Bitcoin, smart contracts, security, and big data.
Designed by Alibaba Group and released by the CPC’s publicity department in January, Xuexi Qiangguo is also the most downloaded app on Apple’s domestic app store. This app mostly serves as a news aggregation platform for articles, short video clips and documentaries about President Xi Jinping’s political philosophy.
