Huawei is working with blockchain technology
Since the beginning of 2018, the Huawei company has begun to develop blockchain research. In February, the company launched Caliper, a project carried out jointly between Huawei and Hyperledger. In the official Hyperledger blog, they explain: "Hyperledger Caliper is a blockchain benchmark tool, it allows users to measure the performance of a blockchain implementation with a set of predefined use cases. Hyperledger Caliper will produce reports containing a number of performance indicators to serve as a reference when using the following blockchain solutions: Hyperledger Besu, Hyperledger Burrow, Ethereum, Hyperledger Fabric, FISCO BCOS, Hyperledger Iroha and Hyperledger Sawtooth."
A month later, in February 2018, the company launched its own blockchain platform (Blockchain Service) that is based on Hyperledger.
Huawei plans to launch blockchain services in Latin America

China prepares for the blockchain revolution
One of the strongest causes of the great development of Chinese companies in blockchain technology is the political impulse of President Xi Jinping himself.
