The smart contract code contains a biography of the deceased doctor. The immutability of the Ethereum blockchain is also going to allow perpetuating the fact that it was Wenliang who sounded the alarm about an unknown virus at the end of December, as warned his colleagues. Subsequently, the police called him for “preventive” interrogation and recommended not to sow panic.

The news of his death instantly turned out to be the most discussed topic in the Chinese social network Weibo the number of views on the hashtag Dr.LiWenliangPassedAway exceeded one billion.

However, after a while, he went down on the list of popular topics, and the hashtag, urging the government to apologize to the doctor, was completely blocked.

Recall, on February 4 Hyperchain's publication stated the launch of a blockchain-based platform to struggle with the plague and will be a donation portal for medical equipment to help hospitals in central China. Collectively with the Fuxing Group, the Xiongan Group, and other successful companies, Hyperchain has developed a platform to guarantee that the donation process is consistent, trackable, and secure.
