China's Tech Upgrade: What Could Go Wrong? Plenty!        
    China's Silicon Valley has evolved over the past two decades to a potentially dominant worldwide tech leader in the near future. From copiers to originators, Chinese tech titans are showing the way forward with leading-edge advances that rival the West.

What could go wrong and detail China's ascent in tech? Plenty, as I note in  Tech Titans of China.

China response to Facebook Libra : It is the greatest threat to Chinese fintech dominance now and they know it. Chinese tech firms have not yet gained many users internationally, unlike US tech. US tech has not, however, had fintech success of Alibaba or Tencent. In turn, central bank digital currency plans are being sped up with Ant Financial, and there's a possibility of loosening domestic cryptocurrency regulation to ensure there is a Chinese competitor. @ChorzempaMartin
