Blockchain that has not been able to “get rid of reality” yetn
The definitive “Gatner Emerging Technology Maturity Curve” ranked the blockchain as the most anticipated and focused emerging technology in 2016 and 2017 for two consecutive years. As a matter of course, beginning with the widespread application of blockchain at the application level in 2017, the concept of blockchain started to attract further attention at the mass media level from the beginning of 2018.n

After nearly a decade of technology accumulation and relying on more mature capital and commercial operations in recent years, blockchain technology is shifting from a single underlying technology structure that supports Bitcoin to a comprehensive digital platform. At the same time, the exploration of the application scenarios of blockchain technology has also gradually spread from the relatively simple financial field to such areas as supply chain, healthcare, copyright, identification, government affairs and law. In the mouth of believers and advocates, this emerging technology will create the next generation of value Internet and create a completely new relationship of production in the future.n
However, it must be noted that the application of blockchain as a technology is still in the early stages of development. It is predicted that the distance from its maturation will take 5-10 years to develop. Blockchain technology has not yet been widely spread in society, there are a large number of technology islands, showing a sense of sectarian everywhere. Most of the existing start-up projects focus on value delivery and data applications. For non-block chain practitioners, especially small and medium-sized industrial manufacturing enterprises and individual producers, the sea still does not have enough technical support to use emerging, specialized and innovation-intensive blockchain technologies. It can be said that in the existing upsurge of blockchain, there is a close connection with the physical world, and there are very few projects implementing the policy of “turning a virtual reality into reality” to industrial production, a limitation that limits the pace at which emerging technologies expand into the real industry. Affected a wider public perception of the blockchain and awareness. Then, at this juncture of blockchain and industrial production, are there any innovative measures of note? A blockchain startup called DIPNET is trying to make its own efforts.n
DIPNET entry point: custom derivatives and its pain point in Chinan
Some of the existing attempts to apply the blockchain to industrial production are noteworthy. For example, Moog, a US aerospace parts supplier, plans to introduce blockchain technology into its 3D printed aircraft parts business and leverage the blockchain distributed, de-trusted technical features to place Moog anywhere in the world The parts manufactured by the equipment can all win the same recognition from customers, thus reducing the high warehousing, logistics and time cost caused by traditional centralized production.n
Moog is targeting the niche segment B, and the DIPNET project, released in January 2018, focuses on the broader commodity space of broader significance and value. Project creator Kan Lei positions the project in the entertainment industry Surrounding the production of goods.n
Globally, the market for peripheral products is huge. According to the “2017 Global Licensing Industry Market Survey Report” released by the International Authorized Industry Association, sales of authorized products in the world continued to maintain steady growth in the context of a sluggish overall economic growth in the world, up 4.4% from 2015, reaching $ 262.9 billion. Among them, China (including Hong Kong) is the fastest growing authorized market in the world and ranks fifth in the world with 8.1 billion U.S. dollars of retail sales. However, the share of authorized retail sales in each country is far lower than in North America (including the United States and Canada). As the world’s largest authorized market, North America (the United States and Canada) accounted for 57.9% of the global market for its revenue. Obviously, in contrast, China, which has a huge domestic consumer market, has great potential in the area of ​​derivatives economy.n
However, although the prospects are good, film and television derivatives have always been the “defects” in the Chinese market. China, the world’s second-largest movie market, lacks a representative business in the area of ​​derivatives. This problem is caused by many aspects, from the IP point of view, the domestic IP output is too scattered, there is no good integration of IP development and product development to make contact, piracy for many years let the authorized party on the Chinese market quite Dread, developers difficult to get the copyright.n
From the production point of view, the traditional manufacturing complex production processes, processing costs are high, unable to respond to film and television entertainment industry to create fragmented demand. According to Kan Lei, founder of DIPNET project and a longtime researcher in the field of “Industry 4.0,” a large amount of loose, accidental, and customized needs emerge after people experience film and television entertainment. However, due to the uncertain shape of these products, uncertain output and uncertain life cycle, traditional industrial production models can not meet this uncertain demand. Therefore, in the existing economic system in China, there is a serious fault between the entertainment industry and the manufacturing industry. Both sides have a low level of integration and a low degree of differentiation, so they are far from mature markets in other countries.n
But now, DIPNET project believe they have found the solution to the pain points above. DIPNET attempts to rapidly build supply chain and production collaboration relationship with emerging blockchain and smart contract paradigm so that loose, accidental and customized demand is finally possible to be commercialized. And thus make breakthroughs in the field of recreational and entertainment with great potential and inject new vitality into the traditional manufacturing enterprises.n
“Industry 4.0 first network red” blockchainn
DIPNET project before you have to talk about the project founder – nicknamed “rabbit brother”, has a “Industry 4.0 first red” said manufacturing experts Kan Lei. In 2017, there was an article titled “Run 1135 Manufacturing Enterprises, and I finally understand how they are killing themselves” and watch the big questions of making and upgrading in China. Through the combination of comics and professionalism People sharp, quickly gain millions of traffic, Kan Lei is the author of this article.n
He graduated from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics majoring in automobile manufacturing. He has experience in manufacturing at Siemens and 3M, and Kan Lei has a deep understanding of manufacturing.n
In Kan Lei view, the derivatives industry and custom has a highly similar scene. In his other article that attracted widespread attention, “Blockchain Industry 4.0, the ultimate outlet or the ultimate scam? “Kan Lei pointed out that” customized products, the only one, no parity, less competition, the market opaque “, so considerable profits. However, the current large-scale industrial 3.0 production methods, can not meet the requirements of customization. Because each product is different, employees have no way of repetitive, empirical work, production is also difficult to standardize the assembly line. Then “a certain low productivity, energy consumption must be high, defective must be more.”n
Therefore, one of the problems that Industry 4.0 needs to solve is how to produce a customized product based on the pipeline and minimize the negative factors caused by customization. Kan Lei believes that the core is to achieve “data flow liberalization”, to establish a highway for the data, and then build “SmartManufacturing”, which is “able to rapidly respond to the rapidly changing external market,” the manufacturing system. The free flow of data is based on the reliability of the data and the certainty of its value. As a pioneer in digital currency investment in 2013, Kan Lei opened up two major areas of concern to his occupation, and he believes the block Chaining is precisely the technology that ensures data is safe and reliable, and the value of data can be determined so that blockchain will become one of the core technology architectures in Industry 4.0. Now, DIPNET is a fusion of Kan Lei for manufacturing and blockchain two areas in-depth thinking, put forward a practical answer.n
Intelligent manufacturing block chain civic = “look and buy” new experiencen
The production of the traditional film and television peripheral products is a very complicated process, in addition to the design, it also involves the estimation of product output. This process is not only time-consuming and labor-intensive, but also involves considerable uncertainty. For example, a movie with a high attendance rate may not be sold around well. Once the production plan is out of line with the actual situation in the market, it will cause huge waste and economic loss. The situation of unsalable products may further undermine the value of IP itself.n
However, with DIPNET, we can imagine a completely new scene: all the props and costumes in a TV series have a “digitized twins” in the virtual world that stores all of their information in a data-driven fashion, including raw materials , The mode of production and the value of copyright ownership, etc., and get the block chain for real and secure data protection. Only in the real transaction before the occurrence of this “digital twins” will not be physical.n
However, once a consumer has a willingness to buy while viewing a television program, the intelligent contract of the entire production chain of the product will be triggered at the moment of payment, and the manufacturers of all the parts of the product are all determined according to the intelligent contract paradigm. All relevant production units temporarily form a rapid response production system, and the intelligent contracts executed on the chain are connected to the centralized digital production systems within each of the production units themselves, and the production instructions are promptly executed to complete the production process. Subsequently, the logistics company will also be based on smart contracts, the product will be sent to consumers.n

What needs to be pointed out is that this entire process of production organization is not achieved through a centralized “giant industrial cloud”. Instead, it is fully distributed, intelligently and self-organizedly produced, and it can quickly respond to the needs of small-batch production of many varieties.n
This is the envisaged DIPNET film and television derivatives industry will bring the changes as the first block-based distributed intelligent production network, DIPNET dedicated to connecting the entertainment industry and manufacturing, will use the factory-side “digital manufacturing and Design “fast response video side” while watching buy “created by the fragmented market demandn
DIPNET project development planningn
In terms of project progress, DIPNET currently plans to open source its underlying web code in the fourth quarter of 2018 and eventually formally launch it in 2020.n

Although the project is currently only positioned to open up the entertainment industry and intelligent manufacturing category above, but DIPNET’s operational logic and the completion of the technical capabilities, obviously not only limited to the area of ​​film and television peripherals.n
We see that DIPNET attempts to create a digital twin for the physical world by incorporating Industrial Ethernet, AI, 3D Printing, Product Lifecycle Management and Blockchain technologies and to create a brand new distributed smart production The internet. This will bring disruptive changes to the traditional social modes of production and create a brand new flat and cooperative global emerging industrial market rather than the traditional hierarchical and top-down enterprise structure. A distributed manufacturing network of tens of millions of people replaces everything from design to manufacturing, drastically reducing the production cost of a product, thereby traditionally dominating tens of thousands of individuals and small and medium-sized producers Large producers challenge.n
Perhaps because of this possibility, we see that the DIPNET project can attract energy blockchain partner Cao Yin, than the original founder of the chain, Bobby CEO Duan Xingxing, SelfSell founder, Beijing letter and cloud Technology Co., Ltd. CEO Li Yuan and other important industry professionals as consultants.n
It is no wonder that in its white paper, the DIPNET project proudly states that it will enable “millions of designers, innovators and developers to contribute and share smart contract paradigms through their intellectual workforce Contract value of the standard flow of the flow of each design will not be wasted, each developer can find their own users, hundreds of times, thousands of times the social creativity will be launched.n
It seems that DIPNET has found an interesting entrance and test ground in promoting the practice of blockchain, bringing a whole new dimension of imagination to intelligent manufacturing. However, DIPNET is still in its infancy. Whether the ability to operate specific projects in Industry 4.0 is as good as that of his article can be found in Industrial Net 4.0 First Red Net. Having seen the pain points in the industry, can the proposed solution be perfect? We may wish to wait and see.n
