According to the Science and Technology Daily (Stdaily.com), the Supreme People’s Court Information Center has taken the lead in formulating “Judicial Blockchain Technical Requirements” and “Judicial Blockchain Management Standards” to guide and standardize the nationwide court on-chain data.

As of May 2020, the People’s Courts Judicial Blockchain across the country has established 32 nodes, and the on-chain services run through the Internet and private networks.

On the Internet, 12.65 million pieces of litigation data such as online filing, electronic delivery, evidence exchange and cross-examination have been uploaded. As for the private network, the amount of on-chain data such as electronic dossiers, electronic files, evidence materials, and information on untrustworthy execution reached more than 400 million.

In April 2019, the Higher People’s Court of Jilin Province became one of the first trial courts on the People’s Court’s judicial blockchain. For more than a year, the court uploaded the files, user behaviors, audio and video data in the litigation process to the chain, and gradually explored 9 possible application scenarios.

On May 25, at the Third Session of the 13th National People’s Congress, Zhou Qiang, President of the Supreme People’s Court, mentioned in its work report in 2020 that the Court should promote the in-depth application of technologies such as big data and blockchain to build the judicial blockchain platform providing intelligent assistance for judges in handling cases and mass litigation.

Blockchain has been officially recognized as a technical means for collecting, fixing and tamper-proof of data.

In September 2018, the Supreme People ’s Court issued the “Provisions on Several Issues Concerning the Trial of Cases by Internet Courts”, stating that if the electronic data submitted by the parties through electronic signatures, trusted time stamps, hash value verification, blockchain, etc. can prove the authenticity, they shall be confirmed by the internet court.

Since the implementation of the “Regulations for Blockchain Information Service Management” on February 15, 2019, the State Cyberspace Administration has issued two batches totaling 506 domestic blockchain information service names and filing numbers.

In April 2020, the third batch of 224 domestic blockchain information service names and filing numbers were released, and the courts were included on the judicial blockchain list.
