Ma Haobo, Founder of aelf, said: "Serving on this committee alongside renowned individuals such as Yao Qian, former Chairman of the Digital Currency Research Center at the People's Bank of China, is a true honor. aelf is a long-term advocate for mainstream blockchain adoption, and the new blockchain subsidiary of the Chinese Institute of Electronics is an exemplar of the way government officials, business leaders, and blockchain experts can work together to set guidelines and standards to support and advance this nascent industry.

The Chinese Institute of Electronics Blockchain Branch held its inauguration ceremony at the 2018 International Blockchain Conference in Changsha, Hunan, which was co-organized by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Central Network Information Office, the Changsha Municipal People's Government, the China Electronics Association, and the China Electronic Information Industry Group. The newly-established committee aims to promote the theoretical and commercial advancement of blockchain in China by conducting academic research and providing training support for professionals in the industry.

In addition, the committee will oversee the launch of the Journal of Blockchain and Digital Society, a new blockchain-focused publication from the Chinese government.
The appointment of Ma Haobo complements aelf's global efforts through its Innovation Alliance, aimed at fast-tracking large corporations and startups on the road to blockchain adoption.
