Did everyone watch the opening ceremony of the Asian Games yesterday?
A virtual digital torchbearer rode the waves from the Qiantang River, climbed over the Grand Lotus Stadium, and lit the main torch tower together with the on-site torchbearers.
This is the first time I have seen such a lighting ceremony, a proper Cyber Asian Games!
This digital torch bearer was lit by hundreds of millions of people who participated in the online torch relay. When it came on stage, many netizens commented: There is me in it, there is me in it! !
Then I have a showdown. Look at this serious torchbearer certificate. +1 for future resume content: I have served as a torchbearer for the Asian Games.
Of course, all joking aside, the opening ceremony of the Asian Games really surprised me.
After watching the interview with the chief director of the opening ceremony, I found out that the plan to ignite hundreds of millions of people was the result of Alipay’s technical guys who typed more than 200,000 lines of code and 100,000 mobile phone tests. The independently developed technology has enabled hundreds of millions of people to “ignite” When people sit at home, light the fire.”
There is also AR interaction that allows three mascots to jump into the mobile phone from the scene, which is also very shocking.
Various technologies and hard work are put into battle. It can be seen that Hangzhou is really working hard for this Asian Games.
I’m sure you all have seen it before.Luxurious buses, rechargeable street chairs, patrolling robot dogs, smart subway windows…
The sense of technology is straight forward. It’s not too much to say “peacock in full bloom”, right?
Being in Hangzhou, the feeling is more intuitive, especially when you go out at night, various light shows will give you the illusion of being in the future world.
People call him a good guy. Now everyone in heaven knows that the Asian Games are about to be held in Hangzhou, and the Jade Emperor has to wear sunglasses when he comes…
What netizens say “Give Hangzhou an Asian Games and give everyone a Cyber City” is true!
In addition to these “hard powers”, many of the “soft supporting facilities” of this Asian Games are also full of effort.
“You sweep me or shall I sweep you?”
This sentence has now become a common language in Asia, especially in Hangzhou, the city of mobile payment, where QR codes can be found almost all over the streets of the city.
During the Asian Games, in order to allow foreigners coming to Hangzhou to use mobile payments like Chinese people, Alipay, which is based in Hangzhou, launched a new international version this time.
The international version allows foreign tourists to use it by attaching an overseas bank card, such as Visa, Masercard, etc. In addition, it has access to 10 overseas wallets, and you can pay by scanning the Alipay QR code.
Take Aunt Wu from Hangzhou as an example. She has been selling scallion buns and stew for more than 30 years. During this Asian Games, her small shop attracted many tourists from all over the world.
In the past, if foreign tourists used cash or credit cards, it might be difficult to buy a green onion baguette.
Now? Just like Aunt Wu said, “I can use Alipay and foreign wallets here.” This will not delay foreign friends from “buying, buying, buying” in China at all.
Moreover, in order to let friends from all over the world experience the convenience of life in Hangzhou, such as buying game tickets, accommodation and dining, travel, etc., “food, accommodation, transportation, travel, shopping and entertainment”, basically you can think of things to do during the Asian Games, One Alipay App has everything covered for you.
Including the digital ignition ceremony, which was attended by hundreds of millions of people at the opening ceremony, it was also realized through the Alipay App.
Really, with an App in hand, I have the Asian Games.
It is said that previous Asian Games have also thought about making similar service apps. The Jakarta Asian Games made 9 apps to provide food, drink, accommodation, transportation, ticket purchase and other services. The number of users is relatively small.
Borrowing from netizens’ hot comments:Others do as the Romans do, eat, drink, and be merry; we do as the Romans do, first place an Alipay checkout, and then eat, drink, and be merry.
But frankly speaking, during this Asian Games, Alipay has indeed refreshed many people’s perceptions.
If you still only know how to use Alipay to pay, water and plant trees, and feed chickens, it is recommended to open the App and dig deeper.
Currently, there are nearly 4 million mini programs on the Alipay App. In addition to the familiar McDonald’s, KFC, and Starbucks, there are also Meituan, JD.com, Tencent, and Kuaishou. Because of this, Alipay has been ridiculed. We have gathered most of Houchang Village.”
The service scenarios that have grown from Alipay’s huge business territory have indeed covered all aspects of our lives.
Let’s start with the data. One out of every three Chinese people uses Alipay to travel; recently, 10 million people use Alipay to check the weather, more than 20 million people use Alipay to rent mobile phones and computers, and more than 3 million people use Alipay to recycle their old clothes. …
Looking at it this way, Alipay’s service is indeed quite thoughtful.
And I also thought that I could find a job through Alipay.
A casual search revealed formal positions, odd jobs, and all kinds of odd part-time jobs. For example, I saw recruitment posts for game trainers, flower care workers, and door-to-door pet carers.
In addition, Alipay can also watch live broadcasts, identify dogs by scanning their faces, and trace product origins by posting…
Maybe when it comes to Alipay live broadcast, everyone’s first reaction may be to dismiss it. Who will watch it?
But in fact, “Baoyou” has already formed a group with Dou Ren, Lao Tie, and momo to form the Internet short video comment area F4.
I accidentally touched the “Life” column at the bottom of Alipay. I browsed short videos for almost an hour. I also bought two barrels of oil while watching the live broadcast. When I came to my senses, I remembered that I came to Alipay to pay the electricity bill.
And I’m not the only one like this. When I open the comment area, everyone is like:I came to Alipay to feed chickens, and ended up watching videos for an hour; I came to collect energy rain, and ended up watching videos all morning…
Moreover, there are still a large number of people born in the 1990s who have been squatting in the Alipay live broadcast room for a long time, just to grab gold for no other reason.
During this year’s “520”, all the gold bars and gold ingots sold by Laomiao Gold’s live broadcast were sold out. This purchasing power scared merchants to rush to restock overnight.
According to a report by “CCTV Finance”, Alipay has 26 live broadcast rooms with a transaction volume exceeding one million in three months. The sales of single merchants on Alipay for high-priced products such as gold and jewelry have exceeded 1,000. Ten thousand yuan.
Therefore, “only payment” may be your biggest misunderstanding about Alipay.
According to Alipay’s official data, there are currently more than 150 vertical service scenarios, including catering, retail, travel, medical care, campus, pets, car life, employment, etc., and the scenarios are still expanding.
It’s not too much to say that Alipay is like Doraemon, right?
It is precisely because of these all-inclusive services that “one app to enjoy the Asian Games” has become possible, allowing foreigners to experience the life of going out with only a mobile phone.
No wonder some time ago, a French up owner mentioned in an interview that one Alipay can compete with hundreds of apps in France.
Now it seems that Alipay is indeed a treasure trove of apps worth digging into. There is nothing wrong with saying that “everything can be Alipay.”
