Jingdong is a leading e-commerce business in China founded by Richard Liu. The company together with Ying Wu College of Computing that is at New Jersey Institute of Technology and the ISCAS, Institute of Chinese Academy of Sciences decided to develop a research laboratory that will focus on blockchain technologies. The lab development venture was announced in Beijing during its launching event.

 

From the information collected, the lab called “Urban Smart Logistics Institute”, will concentrate on providing solutions to stability and efficiency problems that are substantial obstacles blocking the blockchain application in the broader area. The lab will use its resources in exploring new areas in which the technology can be applied including the multi-layer joint research forces into essential research protocols, decentralized security in applications, privacy protection and many more.

 

The established research lab will be headed by three experienced professionals from the three parties who are Dr. Jian Pei, the head of JD Big Data and Smart Supply Chains, Dr. Qiang Tang from Ying Wu College of Computing Assistant Professor, and Dr. Zhenfeng Zhang who is the senior deputy engineer at ISCAS. Dr. Zhang and Dr. Tang are experienced and chief experts in cryptography and blockchain. See This Article for additional information.

 

According to Dr. Pei, Jingdong is a senior company utilizing the blockchain technology, and the company is committed to exploring its ability by investing in the expansion of blockchain ecosystems via strategic studies and partnership. The partnership with ISCAS and NJIT will increase their strengths in developing on that cutting-edge technology that deploys too many fields and industries.

 

Jingdong Mall boasts of more than three hundred million clients and the importance of having blockchain to increase the company’s transparency in delivery and supply chain of their products with safety and high quality in mind. The president of NJIT Dr. Joel S. Bloom was also happy with the partnership that involved a leading e-commerce business and a modern lab that will do detailed research on Blockchain and cybersecurity technologies.

Beijing, Shanghai, And Rural China: JD.com Delivery Under 20 Hours According To CEO Richard Liu Qiangdong November 13, 2018

 

Richard Liu needed money to pay for medical care for his sick grandmother, coming from a poor family. He didn’t have the money to travel abroad either like most other kids at the venerable Renmin University. He got a four-square meter store selling computer accessories and got good at it so that there were twelve stores. SARS came along, and he didn’t want his staff to be hit because “talking face to face was high risk”. So, he closed the 12 shops, at noodles, and stayed at home. Why not sell online? he thought with his managers.

After comparing the figures, Richard Liu Qiangdong realized that online sales made more sense because it was a better experience for his customers all around. Amazon was not very well known at the time. He had only heard of DangDang at the time: it was number one at the time in China.

Richard Liu Qiangdong grew his company rapidly by not selling counterfeit products and services, so he wanted “new rules” for the market that was more of a white hat experience. Proper receipts and everything. They expanded into mobile phones, and every year they added new products. Today, the company has a market of around 30 billion USD. 160,000 employees currently work for JD.com, and in 2017 they added 30,000 workers.

The biggest market value amongst online Chinese stores is TenCent, then Baidu, then JD.com. “As an ecommerce provider, we want to be number one. We have finance, logistics, and it takes time to be number one.” JD delivers around the world: “New York, London, Paris”, et cetera.

This year the global delivery is not as good as it is in China, where it would only take on average 6 hours. 57% of goods will be delivered within 6 hours, and 97% will be delivered within 20 hours. Not just Beijing and Shanghai, but in rural areas this applies as well.” View Additional Info Here.

The Beginning of Alex Pall of The ChainSmokers November 9, 2018

Many of us have sung along to the tunes of “Closer”, “Don’t Let Me Down”, “Something Just Like This”, and “Roses”. The power duo behind the beats, The Chainsmokers, are an electronic dance music (EDM) group. Rising in popularity, their songs have climbed the charts.

In an article, “Closer” in collaboration with Halsey had just released. In it, The Chainsmokers wanted a voice fused with their crafted beats. As many of us know, EDM normally focuses on the beats produced by the DJ and not so much on vocals. The Chainsmokers wanted to evolve from that and create their own brand of EDM. The Chainsmokers, a duo consisting of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart were asked in an interview on how they met. To summarize, they were introduced by their manager, who coincidentally shared the same one. Once they met, it was like a rocket taking off. There was no turning back. Alex Pall, initially DJing as a hobby, started his journey DJing around New York City. DJing was a side hustle for Alex Pall at the time, however, in the interview, he indicated it wasn’t just about that. He said that he was “really passionate” about DJing. Meanwhile, while in Maine, Andrew Taggart was in college. He stated that he was into electronic music before it really took off in the mainstream. His interest peaked and started producing his own work. He released a few of his work and took part in a couple shows. This quickly inspired him to pursue DJing even further. Once Alex and Andrew met, they began working together immediately. A few years later, the duo became The Chainsmokers. The interview goes on to ask various questions about their chemistry and constructing “strong identities as artists”.

The Chainsmokers later reveal that the songs they produce are personal, that it was about their lives. They go on to describe what it was like collaborating with Halsey and the pressures they feel in performing for their audience. They wanted to give their audience a grand performance and to deliver the best experience possible to them. They felt compelled to evolve their performance each time.
