MEF’s series of Blockchain Podcasts continues. This time Dario and Daniele discuss news that the Chinese Internet giant Tencent is investing heavily in blockchain technology: will we see another industry war after the ongoing Huawei 5G dispute between the USA and China?

Now companies are wondering if Tencent could be next on the banned list of the USA government.
