Beijing (PingWest)—Xiong'an New Area said on November 19 that the smart city big data platform based on blockchain technology will be launched in the area before the end of the year.

According to CCTV, currently, the platform is under construction and has gathered data from more than 50 government departments. It is expected to enter the trial operation stage before December 30.

Established in April 2017, the area is located about 100 km southwest of Beijing. The blueprint of the area came out to avoid the "big city malaise", as Beijing is expanding both vertically and horizontally at an exponential rate.
