Jack Ma Discusses the Digital Economy at UN Secretary-General’s Panel

記者譚瑩珊/台北編譯報導

The key to the development of the blockchain and cryptocurrency organizations is whether it can be supported by governments and international organizations. Observing the year of 2018, we can see that cryptocurrency prices collapsed as the SEC(United States Securities and Exchange Commission) began to target ICOs (Initial  Coin Offering), requesting judicial authorities to begin a joint investigation. Regulation has become an important issue for the blockchain, and the United Nations seems to have a more open attitude towards cryptocurrency. Today (January 22), Alibaba’s founder Jack Ma was invited to discuss the blockchain and cryptocurrency with the UN.
According to Sina Finance’s article, “Jack Ma Hosts Meeting With UN Secretary-General On Development of Digital Economy“  「馬雲聯合國主持會議:與聯合國秘書長論數字經濟發展」:
“馬雲赴聯合國日內瓦總部萬國宮主持召開聯合國數位合作高級別小組第二次全體會議。”
Jack Ma went to the United Nations General Assembly at the Palais des Nations in Geneva to host the second meeting of the United Nations Secretary-General’s  High-level Panel on Digital Cooperation.
“馬雲在發言中提出,數位技術領域的規則制定必須具有前瞻性,靈活性和包容性,要從過去的強監管向智能監管轉變。他認為,數位技術具有包容性和普惠特征,對人類社會的正面積極作用遠遠超過問題和挑戰。”
In his speech, Jack Ma asserted that any regulations formed in the digital technology field must be forward-looking, flexible and inclusive, going past strong regulation to enacting true intelligent supervision. He believes that digital technology is inclusive, and its positive, improving effects on human society far outweigh its problems and challenges.
“就數位經濟監管問題,馬雲認為應留下充分空間。目前,很多發展中國家的數位化進程尚未開始,現在就著手制定數字經濟監管規則,時機還遠未成熟,如果過早立法,「就好像為一個三歲小孩做了一雙鞋子,這個小孩以後一輩子都要穿」。  ”
Regarding the issue of digital economic regulation, Jack Ma believes that any laws must leave sufficient space for innovation. At present, many developing countries have not yet begun digitization and thus do not have a mature enough digital economy yet for successful and effective regulation that fits those countries’ needs to be developed. He compared the idea of making over-strict laws now to forcing a 3-year-old toddler to wear the same pair of shoes for the rest of its life: just like children, technology needs room to grow.
