The administrative center of Huangpu District, Guangzhou, a major Chinese city, issues a business license with the use of blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI) technology, as reported by local news agency Sohu on April 22.
As per the news outlet, the license issued is touted as “scan the code and start the company in one click,” which enables startups to file an application, open a bank account and submit a tax invoice application. All these can be done by using a WeChat mini-program.
