The Public Chain Technology Alliance (PCTA) is initiated by the Bitsclub Vision Program (BVP). It aims to establish an open, cooperative and inclusive alliance — fostering cooperation rather than competition across the industry — with an eye on aligning blockchain ecosystems that have until this point been relatively isolated.
PCTA partners are also in unison about the blockchain industry’s current difficulties in developing real-world decentralized applications for traditional industries. To address this challenge, PCTA aims to bridge traditional industries and blockchain projects and facilitate the deployment of blockchain technology to relevant fields in traditional sectors.
Bitsclub Vision Program (BVP) is jointly launched by Bitsclub, Hitters Xu, founder of Nebulas, Dr. Ye Zhou, a Partner at SB China Venture Capital (SBCVC), Danhua Capital, Oneboat Capital, and Odaily. BVP aims to create a seamless connection between traditional industries and blockchain, focusing on projects with stable users and mature business models. It is focused on the sound application of blockchain to existing industries, with an aim of introducing 100 million new users to the blockchain world.
