Due to the severe situation of poverty alleviation, in some places people still do not know much about poverty alleviation in rural industries. However, the application of blockchain technology in the field of precision poverty alleviation and rural poverty alleviation is still relatively small. This article aims to study how to achieve targeted poverty alleviation and how to apply blockchain to rural areas, this experiment uses four different models of survey data, respectively, to investigate the application of blockchain scenarios for different villages, different ages, different populations, and the control group. The experimental data shows that different villages implement the blockchain for poverty alleviation. There has been a noticeable increase in efforts; different blockchain applications have been implemented at the age of 15-25, 26-35, 36-45, and 46-55 to reduce poverty, and financial services and supply chains in the range of 26-45 The effect of targeted poverty alleviation by management is most obvious; the happiness survey found that after the implementation of blockchain-based precision poverty alleviation in rural areas, farmers said they were happier than before. Experimental data shows that the development and application of blockchain in scene applications plays an important role in targeted rural poverty alleviation.
