The Internet of Things (IoT) is the concept of connecting all digital devices in the world with the internet. This provides these objects with the ability to send and receive information via the internet, thereby making them “smarter” and allowing them communicate without requiring human intervention.


If the devices connected through IoT have sensors, they can transmit important information across the internet and between devices. One of the most widely used IoT applications is for “smart” lighting. Light bulbs with IoT can be controlled remotely using smartphones and the internet.


The term IoT is usually reserved for objects that don’t usually have internet connection capabilities, such as a light bulb. This is why devices such as smartphones and computers are not considered IoT devices.


IoT’s earliest applications can be traced back to the beginning of the 21st century to when RFID tags were used to locate and keep track of expensive electronic items. Given that the cost of sensors keeps falling every year, IoT can be implemented on cheaper devices without adding to the device’s production costs significantly.


Benefits of IoT for businesses

Many manufacturers have begun adding sensors to their product devices so that they can track their performance remotely. This is useful for helping companies spot when a device is about to fail, and take action accordingly.


Some of this sensor data may also be used by companies to get a more accurate picture of their supply chains. Any inefficiencies in the supply chain can then be identified and eliminated with the help of this data.


Benefits of IoT for consumers

IoT is set to make the lives of consumers a lot easier as well. Devices such as Google Nest can play music and set timers remotely via smartphones. Home security devices with IoT can transmit information to home owners so that they can monitor the inside and outside of their homes.


Thermostats with IoT can be used to set the temperature of a home while the homeowner is away. This ensures the home is at their desired temperature when they return.


Is IoT secure?

IoT offers many benefits to both businesses and consumers, but the security of the technology is considered poor. Very few IoT devices use security features such as data encryption. This makes it easy to hack into these IoT devices and steal sensitive information from them.


These devices collect a lot of information via their sensors, so the privacy of IoT device owners could be at risk if better security features are not implemented in the devices. As IoT devices continue to grow in popularity and make life easier for everyone, manufacturers must prioritize the security of these devices.


IoT is paving the way for a future where the physical world and the digital world are integrated, but this integration should not come at the expense of security and privacy.




The future of home and mobile gaming could be determined by China and its adoption of 5G services. Ubitus K.K, the leader in cloud gaming technology worldwide have partnered up with telecommunication service provider, China Mobile Hong Kong Company Limited in Hong Kong to provide gamers with the next generation of cloud gaming services.


In addition to CMHK involvement with cloud gaming, the multi-national Chinese company Tencent have also been working on a cloud gaming service for gamers in Asia. These cloud gaming services will battle it out against Google’s Stadia and Microsoft’s xCloud gaming service.


What is cloud gaming?

Cloud gaming is a gaming platform through which players can play high-end console and PC games without requiring expensive graphics hardware. Players are able to play these games using gaming controllers along with computers and/or mobile devices that are connected to the cloud gaming service.


When gamers play a game through a cloud gaming service, the signal from their controllers is transmitted to remote servers hosted by the cloud gaming provider. This signal is then conveyed to the remote gaming hardware that does all the heavy graphic processing related to the game. The graphics produced by these servers are then transmitted back to the gamer’s location and are displayed on their TVs or mobile devices.


The games are essentially running on these remote servers while the gameplay is broadcast back to the player. This makes it easier for gamers without expensive gaming consoles or gaming PCs to play high-end games on ordinary devices that wouldn’t be capable of playing such games otherwise.


Cloud gaming services typically rely on the internet to transmit controller input signals to the servers and to broadcast gameplay back to gamers, therefore, graphics quality and the lag between your controller’s input and the graphical response (known as latency) will depend on your internet speed.


Players with slow internet connections often have difficulty playing games on cloud gaming servers due to lowered graphics quality and high latency (i.e: longer delays between controller input and graphical response) from their poor internet.


How China will revolutionize cloud gaming

Cloud gaming services were previously introduced by Google and Microsoft; however, these services failed to take off due to internet speed limitations that often resulted in gamers experiencing pixelated graphics and laggy gameplay.


China is poised to become a leader in cloud gaming services due to its heavy investment in 5G. This internet technology is believed to be faster than existing 4G technology and should enable players to play graphics intensive games on cloud gaming servers with minimal graphics and latency issues.


Many Chinese brands are already selling 5G handsets, so it will be easy for millions of players in the country to use cloud gaming services in the future. China’s adoption of 5G will make it a leader in cloud gaming services and enable it to make strides in areas where other countries fell short.





China is looking to lead a technological revolution by launching its national blockchain platform. This move could transform the global economy and usher in a new digital age.

The new blockchain initiative known as Blockchain-based Services Network (BSN) was announced by President Xi in November 2019 and was launched nationwide in China on April 25th.


It is scheduled to be launched globally on June 25th this year. The BSN will serve as the foundational infrastructure technology that connects institutions in the Mainland. City governments, corporations, individuals can all be connected securely and efficiently through the BSN.


The BSN aims to provide a more efficient, transparent manner for sharing data, value, and digital assets for users that choose to be on the network. The network has developed cloud management technology that allows computers to perform multiplexing on top of multi-cloud architecture in an efficient and low-intensive manner.


The Chinese government views blockchain technology as an essential catalyst for ushering in a digital age in which smart cities are securely connected by 5G networks. The security of blockchain technology makes it great for handling sensitive government information and ensuring citizen privacy. commercial and private use by others. Companies will be able to use the low-cost blockchain cloud computing services on the BSN at affordable rates. The service is rumored to be offered for less than $400 per year and would provide individuals and/or businesses with access to a digital economy that provides them with numerous financial opportunities.

The BSN’s widespread adoption is an event that has never been witnessed before. One hundred city nodes will be available at the time of launching the network, with all the major national telecoms and framework providers participating as well. The network is planned to be expanded to over 200 cities next year, and is aimed at eventually connecting 451 cities.

The BSN is expected to operate with public chains and decentralized platforms by July 2020. At the time of launch, the network is able to operate with major blockchain platforms such as Ethereum, Fabric, and Hyperledger.

The BSN was created with strong and secure privacy measures in mind. These measures can benefit the people or institutions that are in charge of operating the protocol. This is not too dissimilar from the TCP/IP internet protocol that was originally created by the U.S military, butwas expanded for commercial and private use by others.

The network is being launched during an important moment in humanity when global financial uncertainty is at an all time high. The technological innovations being introduced by the BSN could help bring people together and provide countries and institutions with a way forward after the current pandemic is over.
