About Elastos Foundation
Elastos is the world’s first Internet operating system focusing on re-decentralizing Internet with blockchain to secure identity. Utilizing the Internet as the base-layer infrastructure rather than as an application, the Elastos approach emphasizes that network communications should be separated from application computing, and prohibits apps from direct access to the network to prevent viruses and other malicious attacks such as DDoS.

About TCFA: As the world’s largest association of Chinese finance professionals and scholars, TCFA is collaborating with Elastos, the world’s first Internet operating system focusing on re-decentralizing Internet with blockchain, to bring to the Elastos community and TCFA members worldwide in-depth exchanges on the State-of-the-Art of Blockchain and the unique contribution Elastos is bringing to this space.
