Digital economy in the past decades has witnessed an explosive growth momentum in China. China has arguably become the global leader in the innovation economy. This paper fills the academic gap by explicating the evolution of one of the prime constituents of digital economy, the electronic commerce (E-commerce) sector, and its accompanying regulatory paradigm. This paper opines that the explosive market development has instigated a new governance model in China. This model features innovative, participatory and collaborative regulatory approaches. It represents a polycentric paradigm facilitating technological, industrial and regulatory innovation. This paper argues that such industrial innovation and regulatory anatomy casts profound implications not only cross-sectionally on many other digital economy industries, but also trans-nationally on global governance of innovation economy, and potentially the clash between China and the US.
