Panel Discussion: How to survive and strive in Web3?
Panel Discussion: How to survive and strive in Web3?
Web3 refers to the third generation of the World Wide Web, which focuses on decentralized technologies such as blockchain and peer-to-peer networks. Web3 technologies have the potential to disrupt traditional centralized models and enable greater user control, privacy, and security. There are a few reasons why Web3 is gaining popularity: Decentralization: Web3 technologies are decentralized, meaning they are not controlled by a single entity or organization. This can give users greater control over their data and assets and reduce the risk of censorship or interference. Security: Web3 technologies are designed to be more secure than their centralized counterparts. For example, blockchain networks are secured through cryptographic techniques, making them resistant to tampering and fraud. Privacy: Web3 technologies can help preserve user privacy by allowing individuals to control their own data and assets rather than relying on a third party. Interoperability: Web3 technologies are designed to be interoperable, meaning they can work together and exchange data seamlessly. This can enable the development of new and innovative applications and services. The popularity of Web3 technologies is driven by the potential for greater control, security, privacy, and interoperability in the digital world. But does the wider audience in the crypto space think the same? How do we survive and strive in the Web3 environment? This topic is covered by a panel of experts at Twitter Spaces on 30th Dec 2022 at 21:00 SGT. Hosted by Blockcast (https://twitter.com/Blockcastcc) and Co-Hosted: Bybit NFT (https://twitter.com/Bybit_NFT) and Bybit Web3 (https://twitter.com/Bybit_Web3). It was moderated by Scott Tripp, Marketing Lead of Blockcast.cc. With the following guests discussing the Web3 topic: - Allan, Head of Operation, Moledao (https://moledao.io) - Anndy Lian, Book Author, NFT: From Zero to Hero (https://anndy.com) - Grace, CMO of TwitterScan - Jenny Zheng, BD Lead of Bybit NFT (https://www.bybit.com) - Yoka, Secretary General of ABGA In conclusion, here are a few tips that might help you survive and thrive in the Web3 ecosystem: Keep learning: The Web3 ecosystem is constantly evolving, so it's important to stay up-to-date on the latest developments. This can be done through online courses, attending conferences, and following industry leaders on social media. Network: The Web3 ecosystem is still small and tight-knit, so networking with other professionals can be incredibly valuable. Join online communities, attend meetups, and participate in hackathons to meet others in the industry. Focus on a specific area: While it's important to have a broad understanding of the Web3 ecosystem, it can also be helpful to focus on a specific area and become an expert in that field. This could be a particular protocol, platform, or application. Experiment: The Web3 ecosystem is still in its early stages, so there is much room for experimentation and innovation. Don't be afraid to try new ideas and approaches, and be open to learning from your failures. Stay positive: The Web3 ecosystem is full of challenges and setbacks, so staying positive and maintaining a growth mindset is essential. Keep an open mind and remain resilient, and you'll be well-equipped to handle whatever comes your way.

Anndy Lian, Book Author NFT: From Zero to Hero Spoke at ApeX Dex Talks Episode 9
Anndy Lian, Book Author NFT: From Zero to Hero Spoke at ApeX Dex Talks Episode 9
Anndy Lian spoke at ApeX Dex Talks Episode 9 on 9 November 2022. ApeX DeX Talks is a weekly fireside chat happening every Wednesday on ApeX Protocol’s official Twitter. The host used this segment to have real conversations on real decentralization with leading voices in the web3 space. Anndy Lian is a Thought Leader, Investor & Best-Selling Author. His latest book titled NFT: From Zero to Hero is also well-accepted by the NFT community. At the talk, the host and Anndy touched on the following: - Let’s begin with an Introduction of yourself, and tell us more about your background in the crypto space. How long have you been active in crypto and what have your experiences been like so far? - Sounds like you have been through a lot in this space. So Anndy, can you dive into the basics of NFTs and what is it usually used for in web3 at the moment? - What other kinds of use cases do you think the technology of NFTs would be able to help with the real world? Do you think NFTs could eventually replace the traditional paper certificates of ownership like real estates, wills and legal documents? - Could you share with us what are your thoughts on the future of NFTs and its relevance to the real world. When do you think mass adoption of NFTs would become a mainstream thing? - We have seen a common occurrence in the NFT space where bots and snipers are constantly manipulating prices of NFT launches. Do you think that industry experts should be coming up with preventive measures to curb such actions or that this is actually healthy for the space? - Do you think that NFTs have a chance in the eSports scene or any other gaming sectors? How do you think NFTs will be integrated and which projects are most likely to welcome NFTs to their ecosystem? - Let's talk about DEXes and why is it an indispensable part of DeFi: We have all seen the recent saga between Binance and FTX, where FTX has announced that they are facing liquidity issues and their users may not be able to withdraw all their funds. What is your opinion on this and how could this have been avoided? - What is your take on Decentralized exchanges? What do you think are some of the advantages offered by DEXes as opposed to their centralized counterparts? - What are your thoughts on the ApeX Protocol?I know you have tried the product already, maybe you can share your thoughts with our listeners. - Another question I would like to ask you that concerns AperX, as you know on ApeX Pro, the SBT ApeSoul will be used to establish a trader’s trading performance and reputation in a social trading model, erasing the need for manual verification via a centralized entity. Traders have full control over the creation of their ApeSouls. ApeSouls are linked to a trader’s trading profile (DID — Digital Identity), which includes data such as trading volume, number of trades, open interest, ranking, profits and more. With this, ApeX Pro traders can make their foray into Web 3.0 social trading, where Principal Traders can be determined automatically on the protocol via the data locked on a trader’s unique ApeSoul. What are your thoughts on using SBTs in social trading? Anndy ended the talk by asking all to be cautious in the current crypto environment. "Always do your own research."

Anndy Lian's Speech at Busan Blockchain Week 2022- “Trends Shaping the Future of NFT”
Anndy Lian's Speech at Busan Blockchain Week 2022- “Trends Shaping the Future of NFT”
Busan Blockchain Week (BWB) 2022, hosted by Busan Metropolitan City held at BEXCO for 3 days from Oct. 27th (Thu.) to the 29th (Sat). With the theme of “Blockchain, City and Life”, as an extension of last year’s NFT Busan 2021, BWB 2022 will feature conferences for the advancement of the blockchain industry and provide a space to obtain insight as well as to share information. Anndy Lian's speech is on "Trends Shaping the Future of NFT". Anndy Lian is an all-rounded business strategist in Asia. He has provided advisory across a variety of industries for local, international, public listed companies and governments. He is an early blockchain adopter and experienced serial entrepreneur, book author, investor, board member and keynote speaker. NFT: From Zero to Hero is his latest book. Zero to Hero is a call to anyone and everyone excited about the prospect of the world of NFT. Bound by imagination only, the NFT space is still in its early days and early adopters can be a “hero” in their search for new possibilities. The book is available on Amazon and Bybit. More than 8,000 copies were sold. NFTs took 2021 by storm. With billions traded over NFTs and a strong community behind the technology, we’re seeing NFTs being adopted by industries as diverse as gaming, finance, art, and medicine. NFT Gaming and GameFi: This trend is obvious. At present, many successful game manufacturers in the traditional game industry want to get involved in NFTs. NFT Ticketing: NFT ticketing goes beyond this. The future of NFTs in ticketing offers opportunities for lifetime value, exclusive access, and extra incentives for buyers. NFT Fragments: Fractionalization essentially breaks up an NFT into smaller pieces, so people can purchase small parts of an expensive NFT. Digital Twin NFTs: Imagine this same type of record existing for physical items. It would completely change resale markets. AI NFTs: Alongside blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI) is the next major disruptor in tech. So it should be no surprise the two are being combined. NFTs and Health: With issues surrounding counterfeit vaccination passports and concerns about the vulnerabilities of centralized data storage of sensitive medical information, NFTs and the blockchain may well be integrated more and more into medicine and health in the years to come. Growth Amidst Doubt Although the popularity of NFTs is indeed declining, all walks of life are still accelerating their integration with NFTs. Starting in the second half of 2021, many well-known brands have also begun to try NFTs, matching them with real objects and even designing their own metaverse. Obviously, the utility has become the first test for big brands in the metaverse field through NFTs. NFT essentially provides brands with a new way to launch limited-edition products, and the resulting community and word-of-mouth communication will raise their share of voice compared to rival brands. The Future of NFTs A number of countries are now actively working on regulatory frameworks for NFT assets, strengthening anti-fraud and anti-manipulation audits of projects, determining the business core of each platform, and solving financial security issues such as illegal fundraising and false fraud. At the same time, major public chains are actively upgrading, expanding, and building their own ecological frameworks to provide underlying support for the production, confirmation, pricing, circulation, and traceability of NFT assets. Nowadays, NFT financial tools are becoming more and more abundant, and the scale of financial derivatives is steadily increasing. The NFT industry is gradually exploring a development path suitable for blockchain assets. "The future these NFT trends depict is an interesting one. While many people are concerned about the implications of the metaverse and the rise of AI, it’s a future full of possibilities. We are still early. Let's build the ecosystem together." Anndy Lian added.

TVCC Interviews Anndy Lian, Book Author of NFT: From Zero to Hero
TVCC Interviews Anndy Lian, Book Author of NFT: From Zero to Hero
TVCC, a South Korea-based media company interviewed Anndy Lian, book author of NFT: From Zero to Hero at TOKEN2049 week in Singapore. Anndy introduced his new book and why it is "Zero to Hero". NFTs took 2021 by storm. With billions traded over NFTs and a strong community behind the technology, we see NFTs adopted by industries as diverse as gaming, finance, art, and medicine. The sales volume for NFT has been declining for various reasons, but NFT is already deeply rooted in everyone's mind. The potential applications of NFTs are nearly endless. Some claim ten years from now, all purchases will be accompanied by NFTs. Others think smart contracts will replace legal documents. And while many think NFTs are a fad or too niche to become widely used, big players from Meta (formerly Facebook) to Twitter to Reddit and Visa are taking notice and are working to ensure they don’t miss out on the NFT boom. "The future these NFT trends depict is an interesting one. While many people are concerned about the implications of the metaverse and the rise of AI, it’s a future full of possibilities. It’s a future that bridges the gap between consumers and creators, gives value and security to digital assets, and one which, for better or for worse, will shake up the world." Anndy Lian commented. Anndy also mentioned his NFT book launch on Bybit NFT Marketplace. He believes that pricing is very important in the current market, and Bybit's Grabpic program fits perfectly with what the market wants. Find out more about Anndy's book on Bybit.

What is CC0 NFT? Are they any good? What are good?
What is CC0 NFT? Are they any good? What are good?
Melos Studio is launching their music NFT + CC0 month. CC0, also known as the Creative Commons, means “no rights reserved” on intellectual property. It's a type of copyright that allows creators to waive legal interest in their work and take it into the public domain almost instantly. They have invited the following guests to discuss it. Yalu - Lin Melos Co-Founder TP - X2Y2 Co-Founder Daley - Community Lead of BSC Daily Anndy Lian - KOL/ Best Selling NFT Book Author “NFT: From Zero to Hero” A CC0 NFT can be owned by others. Anyone can use the NFT for commercial purposes without attributing it to the original artist or creator. In summary, CC0 NFTs can be seen as open-source IPs. The sound of NFT on CC0 might sound like it is worthless, and everyone is copying everyone. But it may not be. If more people use the art, CC0 NFTs often become more valuable. If more people pay attention to it, it becomes more valuable. And CC0 incentivizes sharing the project’s art, creating derivatives or monetizing it. This is the point shared by Daley from BSC Daily. However, Anndy Lian states two critical issues. NFT is still growing, and transforming from a 2D NFT to 3D for another batch of sales looks like a money grab. If the community generally accepts this, we will see more people selling new collections by adding some curly hair to the image. This changed the value totally. Anndy also cautioned that we need to trace back to the original CC0 image to ensure it is copyright-free. The full discussion can be found at https://twitter.com/i/spaces/1ynJOagNbMlKR. CC0- Are they any good? What are good? We just got to remind ourselves that NFTs are more than just owning a piece of art, or pure speculations; they are part of a community, where a culture has been created, and culture creates a following. NFTs have opened a whole new set of opportunities for businesses and creators. You can read more about this topic in Anndy's new book- NFT: From Zero to Hero at https://books.google.com.sg/books/about/NFT_From_Zero_to_Hero.html?id=OSqFEAAAQBAJ&source=kp_book_description&redir_esc=y

FIL-Singapore Summit 2022: NFTs, The Bridge between Web 2.0 and Web 3.0
FIL-Singapore Summit 2022: NFTs, The Bridge between Web 2.0 and Web 3.0
Filecoin is making the web more secure and efficient with a decentralized data storage marketplace, protocol, and cryptocurrency. They are here in Singapore during the Token 2049 week to bring more Web 3.0 people together at their flagship event FIL-Singapore Summit. It’s the perfect opportunity to connect with developers, storage providers, ecosystem partners, investors, and clients across the entire Filecoin ecosystem. At one of the panel discussions, experts discussed the topic- NFTs, The Bridge between Web 2.0 and Web 3.0. The panellists lineup includes YC (Business Development Manager, Moledao), Anndy Lian (Author, NFT: from Zero to Hero), Jenny Zheng (BD Lead, BYBIT NFT), Guangmian (Integrations and Partnerships Lead, Kleros and Faye (Founder, Unschul). They looked into topics such: The fundamentals of NFTs - As the interest in NFTs drops significantly with the bear market, how do you think we move forward from here? - What are the existing utility of NFTs and how are they valuable? "For corporations who are entering into the NFT space. They do not have the right tools and people. There are a lot of things that need to be done. If you are going to a decentralised marketplace, no one can also help you. If you come to a centralized marketplace like Bybit, we have tools that can help you make your NFTs happen." Jenny Zheng commented. Brands and Corporations Entering the NFT space - Why do you think large brands such as Marvel, Disney, Adidas, Pepsi, LV and celebrities such as Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Jimmy Fallon are getting involved with NFTs? - How does the use of NFTs as a technology disrupt existing institutional systems and applications? "Brands can use NFT to build their relationship with their users." YC mentioned. Future outlook of NFTs as we move from Web 2.0 to Web 3.0 - NFTs have received a lot of resistance in terms of acceptance. Why do you think that is happening, and what will it take for mass adoption of NFTs? - What do you think about some of the ways that liquidity can be added to NFTs, whether in terms of NFT collateralised loans, AMMs, or derivatives like futures on NFTs? - What do you think will be the next big trend in NFTs? "I really hope to see more AAA games entering the NFT market. I think the driving force for the next wave will be led by NFT." Anndy Lian added too. FIL-Singapore is a collaborative four-day event hosted by the Filecoin community in Asia. There will be a Filecoin Summit and many independently hosted events including meetups, workshops, a hackathon and happy hours throughout the week.

Everything about Ethereum Merge on Blockcast.cc Twitter Spaces
Everything about Ethereum Merge on Blockcast.cc Twitter Spaces
Ethereum Merge is a hotly anticipated and long-awaited upgrade. The Merge represents the Ethereum network's shift to proof-of-stake (PoS), its new system (also called a “consensus mechanism”) for authenticating crypto transactions. The reason the change from PoW to PoS is called “the Merge” is because the already running beacon chain will merge with the existing Ethereum mainnet chain. On the other hand- The fork, commonly referred to as ETHPoW, will share the same transaction history as the main Ethereum network but start creating its own blocks. What does this mean to the market? Are we looking at more volatility? Organizer: Blockcast (https://twitter.com/Blockcastcc) Moderator: Scoot Tripp (https://twitter.com/Cryptobeast32) Guests: Jenny Zheng, BD Lead of Bybit NFT Anndy Lian, Book Author of NFT: From Zero to Hero Leo, BitCoke Partner Dr Z, Ethereum Fair Dev Satoshi_song, Ethereum Fair Dev Yu Han Wong, Strategy Advisor, Moledao Pitbull Core Dev 1. The merger of Ethereum is getting closer (expected on the 13th to the 15th). Some uncertainties are reported from time to time, whether there will be a delay, and what will be the impact of the success or failure of the merger? 2. What should we pay attention to when Ethereum hard forks, and what opportunities will there be? 3. The Ethereum Foundation opposes the fork. What measures will they take to organize the fork, such as technical containment, will it have a substantial impact on the fork? 3. The fork is imminent, some exchanges have expressed their support, and many major ones are waiting to see. What advice do you have for the exchange holders? 4. As one of the hard fork chains, what progress has EthereumFair (ETF) made so far? What are the highlights compared to other fork chains? 5. Whether the stability of the mining pool computing power can be stabilized in a relatively short period of time (currently most mining pools fluctuate greatly) 6. What preparations do miners need to do to support POW? 7. After the successful fork of the ETF, what major plans and actions have the community made? Can you share your roadmap? 8. Where will miners move after Ethereum with their miners, what are your thoughts? 9 What risks will the Ethereum Merge pose, specifically in terms of stablecoins and forks?

Anndy Lian, book author of NFT: From Zero to Hero shares about his book on XRdoge TV. Anndy's book was sold out on 15 August 2022 on Bybit NFT Marketplace. 8000+ copies were sold so far. The book talks about his views on NFT, Web 3.0 and beyond. The book's foreword is written by Ben Zhou, CEO and Co Founder of Bybit and also Jay Hao, CEO of OKX. Many other crypto experts have also penned down their words in the book too. He wants to share the book with people who are both curious about the world and has read many news articles about NFTs. However, I guess these articles were not able to answer all your questions, and you want to know how best to start your NFT journey. - Why would someone be willing to pay millions of dollars for a PFP (profile picture)? What’s the value behind it? - Many actors and singers have also released their own NFTs. However, the price quickly dropped by half after their launch. What's going on? - Nike, Adidas, Gucci, Hermès— it seems that big companies globally are entering the NFT market but how do we differentiate those seriously deploying from those just trying to take a cut from the hype? - According to statistics, in the first quarter of 2022, the transaction volume of NFTs reached $26 billion, exceeding the whole of 2021. However, another set of data tells you that the NFT market is down by 92%. Who should we trust? Is NFT the future, or is it just a bubble? We can see that the NFT market is on fire, but it also comes with a lot of chaos. This is the task I want to accomplish in this book: I will help you to discover the essence of NFTs below the surface of hype and chaos, as well as teach you how to master NFT step by step. Start from Zero to become an NFT Hero with my book. Let’s dive into the NFT world together! The book "NFT: From Zero to Hero" is available on Bybit, Amazon Books and Google Books at the current point.

Panel Discussion on DAOs- Can DAO be the mainstream?
Panel Discussion on DAOs- Can DAO be the mainstream?
A decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) is a system developed to distribute decision-making, management, and entity ownership. It is an entity with no central leadership. Decisions get made from the bottom-up, governed by a community organized around a specific set of rules enforced on a blockchain. DAOs are internet-native organizations collectively owned and managed by their members. Ideally, DAOs are being used for many purposes such as investment, charity, fundraising, borrowing, or buying NFTs, all without intermediaries. The panel discussion will share their point of view on DAOs. 1. 각자 DAO는 무엇인지 정의해 달라. What is DAO. Each of you defines DAO. 2. 인간은 사회적 동물이다. 그리고 조직을 구성해 왔다. 그리고 그 조직은 언제나 리더가 이끌어왔다. 리더가 없는 조직, DAO 구현 가능할까. Humans are social animals, and have formed organizations from the past. Any kinds of organizations always have a leader. Is it possible an organization without a leader (a.k.a DAO) in reality? 3. 다오의 의사결정과정은 다른 조직에 비해 상대적으로 비효율적이다. 그러한 비효율성에도 불구하고 다오가 주요한 조직의 형태가 될 수 있을까. Decision making process of DAO is relatively inefficient than normal organizations. Can DAO be the mainstream forms of organizations, even if that kind of inefficiency? 4. 지금까지 유의미하게 성공한 다오가 있을까. 있다면 무엇이며, 없다면 그 이유는 뭘까. 5. 가장 극단적으로 중앙화된 조직의 형태 중 하나가 국가가 아닐까 한다. 그렇다면 국가와 다오는 공존할 수 있을까. I think one of the extremely central organization forms is government. If so, can the government and DAOs coexist? "Human are social animals ….. many DAOs effectively are centralized if you look at how they execute their decision process. Snapshot proposals are bullshit. A few calls and a few meetings outside the decentralized sphere changed the decisions. DAO can be very efficient, especially the single-purpose ones. Yes, government and organizations can surely coexist vis DAOs. Look at Korea. The association/ lobby groups are a kind of DAO. Decisions are made by the community by votes. They lobby against the government for certain matters. Isn’t this the same as what we see in the crypto native space?" Anndy Lian, Book Author "NFT: From Zero to Hero" commented. This event is held during the Korea Blockchain Week 2022. This sub-event brought many local Korean experts together. When a DAO achieves success, it can then increase the value of the tokens. This helps tackle the issues related to generating capital. Anndy also mentioned that DAOs should find self-sustaining revenue and income. Let's DAO be a decentralized autonomous organization and not DOA (dead on arrival).

Factors impacting crypto market with Anndy Lian | Crypto Masters | 3.0 TV
In a conversation with Anndy Lian of the Mongolian Productivity Organization, we discussed issues with the cryptocurrency market and a potential slowdown in the U.S. economy. Cryptocurrencies are trying to recover from a rout this year that’s wiped more than 60% of its value since hitting a high in November 2021. Virtual coins were battered by the Fed’s shift to monetary tightening and ensuing leveraged blowups, such as crypto hedge fund Three Arrows Capital. To explain the current situation of the cryptocurrency market and its way forward we have invited a special guest to watch this special interaction only on 3.0 TV. 3.0 TV is a news channel which gives you the latest news on blockchain and cryptocurrency on a daily basis which include Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum, LUNA, UST, DogeCoin, etc. We also give information related to NFTs, Metaverse, crypto scams and other educational information.

Holders of previous GrabPic collections can get a chance to merge their NFT to receive more surprises. "I am an author. I want more people to get the knowledge that I am sharing. I want like-minded people to use the book as a talking point. Scott for instance is based in Canada, I would be happy for him if he can be speaking to his local community about the book. Be the spokesperson and subject matter expert. Be an NFT hero!" Anndy Lian added. In this interview, Anndy Lian revealed his plans for the book, his music that will also be launched alongside the book, and a lot more.

Anndy Lian's speech at Block Review Thailand Roundtable- Ethereum Merge: Everything you need to know
Anndy Lian's speech at Block Review Thailand Roundtable- Ethereum Merge: Everything you need to know
Block Review organized a roundtable lunch in Bangkok Thailand, on 26 July 2022. 20 carefully selected guests were present at the event. The guest comprises former minister, senior bankers, and c-suite technology founders. The roundtable aims to let stakeholders understand more about blockchain technology and how this can help with their businesses. The event is closed door, held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed. Mr Anndy Lian, who is based in Singapore is not able to attend the event in person, had his session recorded with the agreement of all the participants. Anndy Lian is an all-rounded business strategist in Asia. He has provided advisory across a variety of industries for local, international, public listed companies and governments. He is an early blockchain adopter and experienced serial entrepreneur, book author, investor, board member and keynote speaker. Currently, he is appointed as the Chief Digital Advisor at Mongolia Productivity Organization, championing national digitization. Prior to his current appointments, he was the Chairman of BigONE Exchange, a global top 30 ranked crypto spot exchange and was also the Advisory Board Member for Hyundai DAC. He also played a pivotal role as the Blockchain Advisor for Asian Productivity Organisation (APO), an intergovernmental organization committed to improving productivity in the Asia-Pacific region. The topic of the roundtable is Ethereum Merge: Everything you need to know. The Merge represents the joining of the existing execution layer of Ethereum (the Mainnet we use today) with its new proof-of-stake consensus layer, the Beacon Chain. It eliminates the need for energy-intensive mining and instead secures the network using staked ETH. A truly exciting step in realizing the Ethereum vision – more scalability, security, and sustainability. At the Ethereum Community Conference in France, Vitalik Buterin said that Ethereum is just 40% complete—and there’s plenty more coming after the “merge.” The Ethereum mainnet with the proof-of-stake beacon chain—is just the first in a series of planned upgrades. Ethereum will then undergo further upgrades, which he calls the “surge,” “verge,” “purge,” and “splurge,” he told the conference. These terms are no strangers to Ethereum followers. Highlights of Ethereum 2.0 (The Merge) - Ethereum will move to a POS consensus when it merges with the Beacon Chain - ETH2 is not a new asset. ETH in your wallet or exchange account will not be impacted. - Ethereum's transition to POS will bring numerous benefits, including improved efficiency, scalability, and security, as well as reduced centralization

Anndy Lian, an all-rounded business strategist in Asia. He has provided advisory across a variety of industries for local, international, public listed companies and governments. He is an early blockchain adopter and experienced serial entrepreneur, book author, investor, board member, and keynote speaker. Currently, he is appointed as the Chief Digital Advisor at Mongolia Productivity Organization, championing national digitization.

His second book, titled NFT: From Zero to Hero, tells you all that you need to know about NFT. His book will available very soon. NFT stands for "non-fungible token." NFTs can really be anything digital。 In simple words, these cryptographic assets are based on blockchain technology. They cannot be exchanged or traded equivalently like other cryptographic assets. Like Bitcoin or Ethereum. NFT allows the buyer to own the original item. Not only that, it contains built-in authentication, which serves as proof of ownership. Collectors value those “digital bragging rights” almost more than the item itself. The following topics were addressed: - Why NFT is important - Overview of the current NFT industry - Who are the current participants in the NFT market? - Introduction of CEX and DEX NFT marketplace - What are the different types of NFTs? - What are the necessary tools if I want to gain an in-depth understanding of the NFT market? - What is a successful NFT project? - Quick Overview on NFT Regulations - Quick Overview of NFT and Traditional Business - What to look out for during the bearish times? - What's next for the future? NFTs have the potential to be infinitely useful in many industries by increasing security and processing costs for transactions and providing a new platform for the gig economy to work through. NFTs are revolutionizing digital asset ownership and laying the foundations for crypto, play-to-earn games, metaverses, and more. Visit https://www.anndy.com for more updates on Anndy's work.

The panel started off with a quick introduction of each panelist. 2. This is the question for Alex. As we all know, Data is the crucial part and the essential infrastructure of the digital economy, with its value amplified in web3 significantly. So, Nasen is the leading data service company and plays a vital role in the space. What do you think about the part of data in web3? And how do you generate more value from the data on the blockchain? 3. The next question goes to Marouen. Consensys has been a pioneer in building Web3 infrastructure, and Metamask is one of the most popular wallets in crypto, with 30 million MAU. So my question is, do you think the wallets will be the core way for referral traffic in Web3? And can you share with us that besides Metamask, do you have any other layout in building Web3 infrastructure? 4. The public chains are the base of Web3. It has developed for years and now is a highly competitive market. Jan Camenisch and Zuriel, could you please share with us how you position your public chains in Web3? And do you have any plans to promote the public chain ecosystem? 5. This is the question for all. As for the native Web3 projects and the Web3 project transformed from the traditional industry, which one do you think is more promising? And why? 6. This is the last question and it is also for all of you. Actually, Web3 is a grand vision. So how do you think of developing the infrastructure in Web3 for the next two or three years? And how long does it take to get to the real Web3 era? The GWEI Summit 2022 is a bilingual and hybrid event that aims to foster collaboration and communication for practitioners from East and West. It promises to provide attendees with the latest updates and comprehensive information on Web3.

Global Cloud Native & Opensource Summit: What you need to know in 2022 & Beyond
Global Cloud Native & Opensource Summit: What you need to know in 2022 & Beyond
Cloud Data Architecture: What You Need to Know in 2022 and Beyond (Big Data Analytics) talks about cloud solutions, cloud analytics, decentralized storage, data democratization, and more. Key takeaway pointers: 1) Cloud analytics is often associated with artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and deep learning (DL). And it is commonly used in industry applications 2) Democratize advanced technology by allowing your employees to work efficiently within their current knowledge. With innovative technology, there is a learning curve that developers/technicians need to go through to make the most of that technology. 3) Decentralized storage works on a reasonably democratic concept where data storage is not concentrated in the hands of a few tech giants. Instead, it is a peer-to-peer cloud storage solution with ordinary users or miners managing the system. Users rent out free disk space on their drives and are incentivized with tokens in return for their contribution. 4) Cloud adoption is a strategy used by enterprises to improve the scalability of Internet-based database capabilities while reducing cost and risk. To achieve this, businesses engage in the practice of cloud computing or using remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process critical data. 5) Distributed cloud will support expanded service availability. By 2023, the leading cloud service providers will have a distributed ATM-like presence to serve a subset of their services for low-latency application requirements. Many cloud service providers are already investing in ways to make their services available closer to the users that need to access them. Moderator: Athiratt Jarnyaharn, Director of Data at BukuWarung Panelist: Nikhil Singh Kushwaha, Senior Data Architect at OCBC Bank Bernard Tan, Director, Internal Audit at ISACA Singapore Chapter Anndy Lian, Chief Digital Advisor at Mongolian Productivity Organization Global Cloud Native & Open Source Summit 2022 focuses on a full range of cloud-native & open source technologies and is committed to defining the standard of the next generation of software engineering.

Crypto Expo Asia 2022 Singapore: The role of Crypto Exchanges in today's landscape
Crypto Expo Asia is the largest event in Asia for Investors and Crypto industry leaders to network and explore more business opportunities in the crypto space. They provide the market's leading content & updates on the Crypto and Blockchain industry that will help you explore the investment opportunities available as smartly and securely. A crypto exchange is a platform on which you can buy and sell cryptocurrency. You can use exchanges to trade one crypto for another — converting Bitcoin to Binance Coin, for example — or to buy crypto using regular currency, like the U.S. Dollar. Cryptocurrencies make it easier for people in different countries to pay each other, negating financial borders currently controlled by banks and governments. The panel comprises experts and practitioners from centralized exchanges. They will share insights on the role of Crypto Exchanges in today's landscape. The session is moderated by Herbert Sim, Bitcoin Man and with panelists Feroze Medora, Gemini; Anndy Lian, BigONE; Travis Teo, Tokenize and Lewis Mahlanga, Gym Network. The following questions were addressed: #1 The explosion of thus many crypto exchanges is the white-labelling phenomena, which allows for almost instant creation of an exchange. With all this proliferation, the nature of platforms continues to diversify. What is the current role of exchanges today, besides crypto trading? Lewis Mahlanga: "We need to educate the market about crypto currencies." #2 Centralized Exchanges versus Decentralized Exchanges. What are your thoughts? Pros and cons? Travis Teo: "As a new user, you might not know how the wallets work. You are also may not know where to obtain ETH or SOL. CEX will act as a bridge for these new users to guide them through the process." #3 To list out some more roles that a crypto exchange could play – Payment services (Remittance, Escrow Service, Micropayments, Merchant Services – Gateway processor, Mobile PoS card reader, Debit card; and more); Mobile wallet, ATM. What are the differentiating factors which sets apart each of the exchanges? Herbert Sim: "Security of the exchange, how credible it is." #4 A big challenge for centralized crypto exchanges over the years is custodial. Users are required to perform mandatory tasks to sign up and verify their identity. Fees can be expensive because platform takes a percentage of initial investment, and off every trade. While there is high level of trust in the CEX from the users, the CEX actually holds the private keys to the tokens and the funds, which makes it subject to hacking. And we have all seen massive multi-million, even close to billion dollar hacks taken place, even in the present day. What are your thoughts about CEX’s custodial today? #5 Possibly the toughest, most controversial question for crypto exchanges. What are your thoughts on wash-trading? And rankings on CoinMarketCap? Feroze Medora: "Even though we are in a very new industry, I like the expression 'Nothing is new under the sun'. Wash trading falls under the border category of market manipulation. Which are features of regular financial market for very time." #6 The question that is probably the biggest challenge for crypto exchanges. What are your thoughts on regulations by regulators across the world – from US SEC, to China’s PBoC, and here in Singapore Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS)? #7 Let’s talk about crypto trading specifically. Mobile Financial Trading, Derivatives Trading, Future Trading, Financial Trading. What’s next? What do you think is the future of trading? - Anndy Lian: "I think derivatives trading would be the strongest and will be one of the key crypto highlights. NFT trading and NFT marketplace would be the next to look at too. The current NFT market has not reached its fullest potential in terms of trading, because it has not hit a critical volume. We should look at this market seriously, build products on top of NFT, facilitate it with real utility and link back to spot

Speech by Anndy Lian at Blockchain Fest 2022 Singapore: “Implementing NFTS for your business”
Speech by Anndy Lian at Blockchain Fest 2022 Singapore: “Implementing NFTS for your business”
Introduction The rise of NFTs seems unstoppable following the recent sale of CryptoPunks to Yuga Labs, and the minting of metaverse land by Yuga just recently netting the company over £250 million. However, while this may seem just another chapter in the rise of NFTs in the digital collectable world the striking thing in 2022 is how they are going mainstream. The signs of mass adoption are already to be found online in social media channels, as people start to use their favorite NFTs for their Twitter or Reddit profile pictures; in turn the popularity has undoubtedly caught the imagination and marketing budgets of big brands, with both retailers and global brands like Adidas joining the NFT movement. With recent news that Facebook-owned Instagram will start testing the integration this week and will not charge any fees for posting and sharing NFTs on the platform it’s time to start taking the business use of NFTs seriously. While the majority of consumers may be skeptical for good reason, as the user interface remains complicated for many people, this is not a passing trend, NFTs are here to stay. Which begs the question, how can businesses both large and small make use of this fascinating technology for the benefit of their customers and their own profitability? Clearly a major motivator for business involvement in the NFT market is to generate their own revenue. This is true for businesses looking to give away their NFTs as a promotional campaign, to consider the value of the NFTs on the re-seller market, and how that could also generate revenue. However, it’s worth underlying the fact that NFTs are just one small part of the broader new wave of the web called web3, which includes the metaverse and cryptocurrencies. And with Facebook going in hard with billions of dollars in metaverse-related spending (around $10 billion on AR, VR, and related hardware as well as the development of metaverse apps and services), and US theater chain AMC recently announcing significant customer spend using crypto, now’s the time to take a closer look at why NFTs have a real business case to consider. Its perhaps useful to consider the comparison with the early days of the internet, when some industries found the new online world easier to take advantage of than others, with books sellers facing an easier task to e-commerce than say fresh food retailers. Similarly, now NFTs are more readily used by sports and media companies looking to create new sources of revenue from media assets. While the NBA’s Topshots is often cited, having become an integral part of the NBA fanbase, with a valuation of up to $7.5 billion (Sept 2021) the real expansion of the use of NFTs in 2022 has been in European football. Like the NBA it’s a way to engage a younger section of fans, and like the use of NFTs in the music business it has the advantage of building on an existing community of fans. The example of Sorare, which has built on the market for digital football trading cards, is the standout example of a business which originally built its revenue as a fantasy football league buy moved into NFTs. However, while this is one niche business that has seen the opportunity to expand its appeal and revenue through NFTs it does point to a powerful engagement element that all online businesses, particular consumer facing ones, namely community. As business owners know, and marketers even more so in this competitive multi-channel online world, serving and sustaining a customer base over time that reduces the costs of customer acquisition and retention requires building and sustaining a loyal community. As shown with the case of football or music fans, each of which come with respective ready-made communities, NFTs are a great way to reach and retain communities. These include loyalty programs, which reward customers for their loyalty and encourage them to continue to do business with you, to B2B style membership programs, that allow businesses to give exclusive member

Anndy Lian Spoke at AIBC Summit UAE 2022: ‘Investment opportunities in Defi & NFT’
Speaking on ‘Investment opportunities in Defi & NFT’ at the AIBC Summit in Dubai on March 21, 2022, the Chairman of BigONE Exchange Anndy Lian said he firmly believed in the importance of community to the long-term success of DeFi and NFT projects. “There is a lot of hype in the crypto market around DeFi and particularly NFTs right now. But one essential factor that sets the projects apart is the strength of their community. I think that community aspect needs to be clearly laid out when seeking VC investment,” Lian said. While in the world of startups you traditionally started with a product or service and then sought to find and acquire customers in the DeFi and NFT world, these rules have changed. Indeed, during the ICO boom days when a white paper and a founding team with advisors was enough to gain funding, in 2022 that’s certainly no longer the case. While a strong project team is still essential just as important is a clear vision of what the project is aiming to achieve together with real utility, said Lian. “There’s a lot of talk about projects being community-focused but what does that mean? It’s certainly true that building a community cannot just be based on a series of airdrops otherwise the community will soon disappear once the incentives dry up. I believe there needs to be along with an engaged community, a sense that the community has a real stake in the startup through its governance and its tokenomics,” Lian added. As the current controversy over the purchase of Crypto Punks IP by Yuga Labs, which is currently reported to be in funding talks with A16z at $5B valuation, the role of VC investment in this space comes with both opportunities and risks, Lian observed. While Yuga Labs has now acquired a dominant position in the NFT market, and top VC interest along with that, there remains the challenge of keeping diverse communities onboard. “In the long term, particularly as regulation in crypto starts to make an impact, its important to consider how a DeFi, NFT or even a meme coin project will continue to deliver value on behalf of its customers, and for its community,” said Lian, who is also a Kishu Inu Foundation council member. Also appearing on the expert panel hosted by NewTribe Capital VC were Vinny Lee founder of CRT Labs, and Martin Belobrad partner at Metrix Capital. AIBC Summit aims to be a pillar in the technological development by uniting tech-leaders, regulators, investors and entrepreneurs from across the world to discuss, share ideas, make partnerships and build the foundation for the industry of tomorrow.

Anndy Lian Shared his views on "Why are crypto exchanges still flourishing?" at Crypto Expo Dubai 2022
Speaking on the panel ‘Why are crypto exchanges still flourishing?’ at Crypto Expo Dubai on March 16, 2022, the Chairman of BigONE Exchange Anndy Lian and council member to Kishu Inu said he firmly believed in the sector’s long term prospects. “All the good actors we have to understand why we're here; is it because there is a chance to earn more money, a chance to earn a few million dollars on exit? That's not true, people at Binance or FTX they are all looking at the long term investment in infrastructure, including investing in licenses, and most importantly investing in people, not just their own staff but also their community,” said Lian. “Is it better for an exchange to be located in the Seychelles versus Singapore or South Korea? It becomes a choice where you want to be regulated, where your community is,” he added. Clearly, the crypto exchange industry is at a crossroads, with the sanctions against Russia together with incoming crypto regulation led by the US likely to lead to a significant change in how exchanges operate. Until now exchanges outside the US which have largely ignored regulation have been at an advantage, allowing them to win as they benefited from lower overheads and restrictions. But as financial regulation starts to bite, this liberal regime which allowed global players like Binance to thrive is no longer the case. It was reported in December 2021 that Binance, the world's largest cryptocurrency exchange with a daily turnover of US$76 billion, withdrew its application to start a cryptocurrency exchange in Singapore. In the US the SEC amended rules published in January which expand its oversight to securities traded outside its supervision means that decentralized exchanges such as Uniswap, which traded more than $70bn in volume in January, could also be affected. US President Biden’s new executive order, directing agencies to work out a comprehensive approach to crypto currencies bodes well for the sector, but regulatory implementation will be key. “In conclusion, I think there's still a lot of good money out there to be made. It's not just about Binance or FTX, if you in your jurisdiction do well, and create your own community and be truthful in your operations, whether a meme coin or layer 2, then there is sufficient money in the market, there are sufficient exchanges to be listed on for you to prosper; but overall, it's going to be a long term process,” Lian remarked. At this panel discussion, we are joined by Osama Bari (CTO, Difx), Peter Sumer (CEO, Bitmarkets), Mohammad Khalifa (CEO, Garantex), Shantnoo Saxsena (COO, Lbank) and Anndy Lian (Chairman, Bigone & Council Member, Kishu Inu Foundation) and moderated by Uptin Saiidi.

BigONE’s Anndy Lian Shares His Vision for Successful NFTs
BigONE’s Anndy Lian Shares His Vision for Successful NFTs
Speaking at the 14th World Blockchain Summit MARVELS, the Chairman of BigONE Exchange Anndy Lian said that key to success for NFT startups was a supportive community and a compelling user case. As a guest speaker at the event on February 22, under the theme of ‘NFT META Korea 2022’, Lian agreed that the global market for NFTs was very active currently but wanted to share his thoughts on how NFT projects can be successful in the longer run. One key factor that should be with a team from the outset is to ensure the NFT has utility, which is closely tied to the importance of community. Lian illustrated the importance of getting this relationship between the NFT and its community, between creators and fans, with the example of starting a NFT around a well-known soccer player. While on paper the fans of a soccer player appear to be automatically part of the NFT community you are building, that isn’t necessarily the case. What was needed was a strong bond to be created between the fans and the soccer star and the platform for it to work. This was related to the importance of ensuring that when you see a new project in the NFT space you should as an investor consider whether it has utility. Lian added that for NFT creators it was important to be transparent about their offering to investors, not only to better convey its value, but also to ensure that when regulators start to enter the space in 2022 the quality of the NFT industry stands up to scrutiny. With so much money, energy and creativity going to NFTs its clearly going to throw up some significant issues, and mistakes will be made. Just recently there was a legal battle over CryptoPunks, sparked by an issue with the original version of the code. The makers Larva labs attempted to ban the faulty V1 version, which had been replaced due to faulty programming code, and had the NFTs removed from OpenSea. While LooksRare, the rival to Opensea, was recently reported as experiencing significant wash trading. But perhaps more worrying was the recent Wormhole bridge attack, when hackers managed to steal more than $320m from the bridge which connects the Ethereum blockchains. A ‘bridge’ is a protocol which allows crypto and NFT holders to move their assets across different blockchains. Wormhole’s bi-directional NFT highway provided a portal between Solana and Ethereum was only launched a few months ago, was designed to connect both communities and enable them to trade each other’s assets with ease. As reported in CNBC, analysis shows a hacker exploited a vulnerability on the Solana side of the bridge to create 120,000 so-called ‘wrapped’ Ethereum tokens for themselves. It appears that they then used these tokens to claim ETH that was held on the Ethereum side of the bridge. This is indeed troubling on several fronts, not least because these bridge vulnerabilities have long been known about. Indeed, no less a figure in the crypto world than the inventor of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, posted early this year that so-called cross-chain devices such as bridges had “fundamental security limits”. The first reason is down to the fact that if a native blockchain suffers a 51% attack, which reverses a cross-bridge transaction (involving a transaction to another blockchain) then the asset could be left stranded in the non-native blockchain. Moreover, this vulnerability could potentially mean a successful 51% attack could threaten an entire crypto ecosystem. Clearly, the issue is as these handy bridges grow in volume, with the growth in DeFi and NFTs, that these issues will only increase. “Your data layer must be your security layer,” summarized Buterin in a tweet thread accompanying the Reddit post. One neat solution to the threat posed by bridging hacks to NFT transactions was unveiled on February 18 by Ethereum-based platform Harmony, with a Bored Ape Yacht Club Passport. This allows users to import their NFT into play-to-earn game DeFi Kingdoms, which is also built on Harmony and boasts o

Korea Blockchain Conference Panel 1: Blockchain Technology, Development, Innovation & Opportunity
Korea Blockchain Conference Panel 1: Blockchain Technology, Development, Innovation & Opportunity
Korea Blockchain Conference (KBCC) was held at the Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas Grand Ballroom on the 15th February 2022. KBCC was conceptualized and curated to help the growth and development of the blockchain industry. The event helps to let the South Korean audiences know more about the technology and also bringing foreign talents to share their experiences with the local. The opening session was given by HS88 Chairman Kim Ho-seong. The session ended with a video congratulatory speech by Won Hee-ryong, a member of the People's Power, and Lee Sang-ki, the Korean representative of the World Blockchain Organization (WBO). Hoon-ki Park, Secretary General of the Busan Blockchain Industry Association, and Hyung-joong Kim, a special professor at the Graduate School of Information Security at Korea University have also shared their insights. There are numerous foreign blockchain experts who participated in the event too. The panel titled Blockchain Technology, Innovation And Opportunity. The panel is led by Jenny Zheng (ByBit, NFT BD Lead), Anndy Lian (Big One Exchange, Chairman), Davy Goh (Passion VC, CEO), and Joe Lu (Origin Storage, Partner) , and Hwang Byung-sun (Big Bang Angels, CEO). “As an exchange operator and investor, the main driver for blockchain technology is utility. There are better use cases as we progress. The integrated of Web 3.0, gamefi and NFT help to related with more people and allow new blood into the business. Meme coins are also another trend that cannot ignore. Their communities are the real assets in time to come.” Anndy Lian, Chairman of BigONE Exchange said. Jenny Zheng, the business development lead of by Bybit NFT marketplace also mentioned in the panel that Korea has always been a very powerful country in the field of entertainment & gaming industries and Bybit is looking for more opportunities to work with good Korean projects in those fields. “NFT is surely a trend that you cannot ignore. More and more companies are getting on. Do not be a late adopter.” “I am in the fund management business and there is a strong demand and interest in blockchain technology investment. We need to quickly fill up the gaps and start to explain what is blockchain to the traditional players. If we can get them to understand what this technology can do, we will see more funds flowing into the industry.” Davy Goh, CEO of Passion Venture Capital explained. The global blockchain market is currently about 2,000 trillion won and has achieved explosive growth in blockchain-related industries such as exchanges, blockchain companies (Defi, NFT, Metaverse, etc.). However, the domestic blockchain industry is undergoing regulatory enforcements such as special tax laws and taxation before entering the system, and general investors are not protected by policies that do not have clear guidelines. In order to improve this and help all parties to understand this industry, KBCC will continue to hold international conferences in the future with the aim to aid the development of the blockchain industry.

Blockchain 101: A Quick Brief To A Private Equity and Venture Capital Company
Blockchain 101: A Quick Brief To A Private Equity and Venture Capital Company
Blockchain is a type of DLT where transactions are recorded with an immutable cryptographic signature called a hash. The transactions are then grouped in blocks and each new block includes a hash of the previous one, chaining them together, hence why distributed ledgers are often called blockchains. The consensus of blockchain is that all nodes maintain the same distributed ledger. In traditional software architecture, the consensus is hardly a problem due to the existence of the center server, hence the other nodes only need to be aligned with the server. Most blockchain projects use one of the three currently most common consensus algorithms: Proof of Work (PoW) and Proof of Stake (PoS). Crypto wallets store your private keys, keeping your crypto safe and accessible. They also allow you to send, receive, and spend cryptocurrencies. As of February 2021, there are 82 cryptocurrency wallets available (Cryptowisser, 2021). They come in various forms and support different cryptocurrencies. The more popular wallets include Coinbase, Metamask, Token Pocket and more. There are many popular coins/ tokens too. For example Bitcoin, Ethereum, BNB, XRP, Tether, Cardano, Polkadot, Stellar, USD Coin. Many of them have their own unique selling points and utility. A utility token is a crypto token that serves some use case within a specific ecosystem. These tokens allow users to perform some action on a certain network. A utility token is unique to its ecosystem. The more talked about buzzwords in this industry is Web 3.0, Gamefi, Defi, Metaverse, Memecoin, Play to earn etc. If you don't know, ETH is the second-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization and is the preferred choice for DeFi projects. Blockchain game Axie İnfinity was the breakthrough of the year and got ahead of the most popular blockchain platform Ethereum in terms of revenue. SAND and MANA continue to be the taking the leader in the Metaverse market. As for Memecoin, Doge and Shiba are the leaders, while rising stars such as Babydogecoin, Kishu Inu, Dogelon, Xrdoge, Catecoin are still working hard to retain its current positions. Bitcoin's USP is either being a store of value, a medium of exchange or it can be dismissed as a fad. Maybe its true value is not just measurable in economic terms. Ethereum generates its value from how useful it is to its users. While BNB is strong and rising fast due to its willingness to incubate groom start-ups to grow and benefit together with them within the Binance ecosystem. Blockchain has without a doubt created a lot of discussion as the next big thing, especially in the finance sector. It could be used to securely and efficiently transfer user data across platforms and systems. Blockchain-centric business models will present a seismic shift to how business is conducted in the future. Let's explore and exchange more information on crypto. Sharing through sessions like this helps the general public understand more. This Blockchain 101 briefing is conducted by Anndy Lian and hosted by Pavilion Capital. This is a session to share basic blockchain technology information. Not used for promotional activities. Non-financial advice.

Anndy Lian Shares About Metaverse, and Cryptocurrency: An Interview with Stashaway
Anndy Lian Shares About Metaverse, and Cryptocurrency: An Interview with Stashaway
Anndy Lian, Chairman of BigONE Exchange gets into the nitty gritty of metaverse with Stashaway, an intelligent wealth management platform run by roboadvisors. Metaverse, much like NFTs, is not something new in 2021. It has been talked about seriously since 2018 in a book that Anndy wrote - Blockchain Revolution 2030. Dating further back, ‘metaverse’ was known as a ‘virtual world’ and its origins are mostly credited to Author Neal Stephenson’s 1992 dystopic, sci-fi novel Snow Crash, and many see a more recent inspiration in Earnest Cline’s 2011 novel Ready Player One. “Metaverse,”, says Anndy, “is more like a bridge between the virtual world and the real world.”. It is speculated that everything that can be done in the real world can be mimicked and reproduced in the metaverse - and maybe even more. It is not as minuscule as having meetings, or creating a cute profile or meme in the metaverse. Imagine what you can do in real life - work, earn your keep, enjoy entertainment - these are what the metaverse promises. There is a hype around metaverse right now and with the help of Facebook and a few other big companies, people are looking at tech stocks and good crypto companies to invest in. It’s only been a couple of months since the topic of metaverse surfaced and many may argue that it is too early to start investing or paying attention to the market. One concern is that users who are into the metaverse are buying land - digital land - and keeping them. It is of no surprise that they will must have been quite hefty. “It may look like an investment now but you are really just gambling because there is no clear indication right now which metaverse is going to be the next big thing. There are a lot of things to uncover and discover,”, Anndy explains. The media features news that are trending and people often just listen to them without doing their own research. It is imperative that these people understand that we are only in the beginning phase of metaverse. Taking Google and Yahoo as an example, in the past, everyone thought that Yahoo would be the biggest leader in search engine, but despite both of them being billion-dollar companies, Google clearly has the biggest advantage right now. It is a common misconception that the metaverse is all about cryptocurrency. It is without a doubt that cryptocurrency is one of the aspects of metaverse that connects everyone, however, looking at it from a deeper level, there is also a tech aspect. One of which is Web3.0 that will be coming to improve engagement and enhance safety. Apart from cryptocurrency, NFTs are definitely a part of the concept as well. We may have seen virtual galleries showcasing NFT artworks around the world - and this is only the beginning. Another common misconception of the metaverse is that it is closely interlinked with virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). Due to the portrayal of Ready Player One, many believe that we have to wear headsets or sit in a special chair to experience the metaverse in 5D. Thinking back to a conversation with a friend, Anndy brought up that we are all restricted by our physical bodies where we grow old and sick. “If it continues to be like that, how about connecting our mind into the metaverse?”, questions Anndy. This may not be too far-fetched an idea either. Greg Daniel’s 2020 sci-fi television series Upload portrayed Anndy’s thoughts perfectly. The premise of the series is that humans are able to “upload” themselves into a virtual afterlife of their choosing. Now isn’t it wonderful to be able to live even after death? In a metaverse, there are a few foundational aspects needed to flourish. First and foremost is the ability to let people earn money. Many games such as Axie Infinity have been released where players can play to earn and this attracted the attention of billions of people. Secondly, is the formation of a strong community. With a community, bigger and more valuable things can be built upon as long as th

Anndy Lian Speaks at Tradeup Conference: Gamefi- The Future of Crypto
Anndy Lian Speaks at Tradeup Conference: Gamefi- The Future of Crypto
As you are new to cryptocurrency trading you will have already come across and invested in the likes of Bitcoin and Ether, and started to research on alternatives such as Litecoin, which is regarded as an improved version of Bitcoin. You’ve no doubt also decided on a sound crypto investment plan, with sufficient financial reserves to deal with losses, and set up an account with a reputable secure exchange such as BigONE to manage your trading activities. And now having reviewed all the various options you are keen to find out what the next big thing in crypto is, which is exactly what I’m here to talk about. So, without further introduction, let's take a deep dive into the world of meme coins, the metaverse, DeFi and an emerging exciting sector in gaming called play-as-you-earn, also known as GameFi. But to start by setting the context, so you are the most equipped traders coming into this booming sector of crypto investment, let's look at the rise of meme coins, created originally as a joke about crypto which have taken a life of their own as their popularity has soared and new meme coins have emerged with real world use cases since the launch of DogeCoin in 2013. Trading tokens in the metaverse? It’s also not hard to see meme coins use in related sectors such as music and particularly gaming, as a cross-proprietary platform currency to enable the vision of the ‘multiverse’ or more commonly known as the metaverse. In a recent report UK-based blockchain VC Outlier Ventures sees the need to have a crypto decentralized core, with its own payment system as key to building the metaverse. But to take a step back and explain the metaverse a little, and why it’s worth understanding from a crypto traders’ perspective. First, a definition of metaverse. In layman's terms, a metaverse is a virtual world that exists alongside the real world. The popularity of the metaverse concept is taking serious shape in recent years, with tech titans such as Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Samsung, and Sony joining forces to form the XR Association, which is aimed at bringing this concept of an ‘experiential reality to life. So back to the role of crypto, or the lack of it to date, in the metaverse. Despite the frictionless use of crypto, with low fees and decentralized P2P structures, the reality is that the commercial first movers in the metaverse space from gaming have their own proprietary currencies. What makes DeFi so attractive to the metaverse community is that it can be automated, without any centralized intervention. It also means that DeFi has long term attractions, allowing game developers and players to invest time and money knowing the underlying blockchain platform won’t change without crypto community consensus. Cryptocurrencies have already been successfully integrated recently into virtual worlds created by companies such as Decentraland and Sandbox. For example, users in Decentraland can purchase virtual real estate such as theme parks and monetize them using cryptocurrencies. While drinks giant Coca Cola plans to launch its own NFTs on the platform, including a ‘wearable’ jacket for avatars in the Decentraland metaverse. NFTs As newcomers to the world of crypto trading you may not have heard of the metaverse before, but you probably heard of NFTs and the headline grabbing rise in value of these unique digital assets. Non-fungible tokens are referred to as NFTs. According to my understanding of economics, the term fungible relates to anything that can be exchanged for something of equal value. Most investors know that the nonfungible token (NFT) sector has been on fire since July, and as the likes of CryptoPunks (which got even more coverage when bought recently by VISA), Mutant Ape Yacht Club and pet EtherRock NFTs fetched six- and seven-figure sums, while top NFT marketplace OpenSea surpassed $4 billion in total sales. While the frenzy has been impressive, it’s also true that many new projects have launched across a var

Anndy Lian Speaks About the Past, Present, and Future of Blockchain & Cryptocurrency on the Vietnam CFO Forum 2021 - The Optimum Reset.
Decentralised finance (De-Fi), in its simplest form, is an umbrella term for financial services on the public blockchains Binance and Ethereum, among many others. De-Fi is a global service that is transacted on a peer-to-peer basis without dealing on a centralised system. With De-Fi, mainstream financial services that are provided by traditional banks, such as earning interest, borrowing, lending, purchasing insurance and derivatives, and trading assets, can be achieved a lot faster with much less paperwork, without the need for a third party. There is a lot of confusion among the people on what De-Fi could and would do for them in this current market. De-Fi enables automated smart contracts that can be used in different sectors like insurance and real estate. Simply put, De-Fi has the potential to transform and transfer the traditional banking sector into a more decentralised model for serving clients. Before the introduction of De-Fi, yield farming, which is the practice of staking and lending of cryptocurrency assets to generate high returns, was made available by traditional financial systems to institutions that wished to lend money to individuals and businesses. “Through decentralisation,”, Anndy clarifies, “making financial processes such as yield farming available to the world has the potential to deliver financial opportunities and joy experienced by the elite to the rest of the majority of people.” JP Morgan, who was once very averse to cryptocurrency, is currently bullish on the staking business, which generates $9B in annual revenue and could be worth over $20B when Ethereum2.0 launches in 2022. According to analysts, $40B in 2025 is not as far-fetched as it seems. There exists at least 1.7B unbanked people in the world; of which 290M people are in Southeast Asia. With blockchain technology, there is hope to create an alternative to the traditional financial system. Despite the hype around De-Fi, it is most likely that the future financial system will work on a hybrid mode, connecting De-Fi with traditional banks. In this scenario, central banks, regulators, and overseers of the economy would have a vital role to play in the digitalised and decentralised finance system. “It is also worth noting, in this context, the rise of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDC). While the Chinese CBDC, the digital Yuan, was born as China’s answer to Facebook Libra, the recent ban of Bitcoin and the advancements of digital Yuan by the People’s Bank of China shows that the rise of De-Fi is by no means guaranteed in its decentralised form.”, says Anndy. In everything that exists in the traditional financial systems, there’s always a parallel version in De-Fi - ranging from credit lending, trading derivatives, and asset management, to insurance. There is a strong belief that De-Fi and centralised finance would a middle ground, or a way to integrate with each other. Vietnam has a very strong user base for cryptocurrency - a lot of good games originated from there such as Axie Infinity. During this period of time where COVID-19 has stopped a majority of key activities, there was a time of desperation where people were unable to make a living. Looking at the cryptonomics behind this, users can play Axie and make money to survive in the real world. Cryptocurrencies have gained a lot in the past 2 years due to COVID-19, and have helped numerous people in different ways. The journey of cryptocurrencies and De-Fi has just begun and only time will tell if they’re here to stay. The Vietnam CFO 2021 was a discussion between the board panelists - Tim Evans, Chief Executive Officer of HSBC Vietnam; Sharath Martins, ACCA’s Senior Policy Consultant; Anndy Lian, Chairman of BigONE Exchange; and Hiroaki Endo, Señor Research Fellow of Japan Association for CFO.

DeFi Live Virtual Stream: How Global Macro Trends Might Affect Crypto in the Near Future
DeFi Live Virtual Stream: How Global Macro Trends Might Affect Crypto in the Near Future
DeFI Live is a 2-day experience hosted virtually and in-person in London, showcasing the hottest DeFi Projects and biggest tech breakthroughs in the works. There were over 700 attendees, 200 speakers and more than 2000 global audiences at the event. In this panel titled 'How Global Macro Trends Might Affect Crypto in the Near Future', the following speakers were present to share their insights: William Ralston Saul - Co-Founder, InCryptoHub; Barry Herbst - Snr VP Strategic Partnerships & growth. The Elliot; Anndy Lian - Chairman. Asia BigONE Exchange and Dan Beurthe - Director of communications, Zebu. This panel discussion covered several trending topics and issues: - Effects of over-regulation on personal and business banking activities - Effects of inflation - Effects of the developments in technology - Thoughts on traditional companies moving into the tokenised space - Key driving forces behind adoption of blockchain technology - NFTs: how they are viewed vs its true purpose - Utility coins vs memecoins It is not rocket science that regulatory costs will continue to climb and remain a top concern for bankers. This all adds cost, with consumers ultimately bearing the burden. New technology will aid this process. "With all the over-regulation happening with personal and business bank accounts, the move to have all your financial activities done on the blockchain is inevitable." - William Ralston Saul "Cryptocurrency empowers people to rethink their typical career life." - Anndy Lian. Blockchain, the technology behind cryptocurrency, has also finally taken a step towards the mainstream. Cryptocurrency provides many incentives for entrepreneurs across the globe. It has made it easier for entrepreneurs to reach international markets rather than strictly sticking to the national markets. Web 3.0 is the next stage of the web evolution that would make the internet more intelligent or process information with near-human-like intelligence through the power of AI systems that could run smart programs to assist users. The combination of Web 3.0 and crypto will change things. "When people realise that they are the product - their data is the product - Web3 will take over in terms of people owning their data using protocols, blockchains, and DApps." - Barry Herbst. "The true value of cryptocurrency is not the price; it is how we use blockchain to do good for everybody." - Anndy Lian. This will depend on the future of blockchain technology and how we position it now. The hype may fade, but the technology will continue to evolve if we keep building. Anndy also mentioned that the trends can be meme coin for example. This is a trend that is easily relatable to new users. It can be Shiba or Kishu, as long as they build products that people can use and their community is strong, this has already fulfilled the utility portion of blockchain. The adoption of blockchain technology, especially cryptocurrencies, is truly inevitable and it's approaching at a speed faster than we think. This industry is growing larger by the day and we're glad to have had this board of panellists discuss what our future could hold. Are you ready?

Dataverse/Metaverse Twitter Spaces: Speakers Camilo Echeverri; Borget Sebastien; Anndy Lian etc
Metaverse has been the talk of the town since Facebook’s decision to rebrand as Meta in October this year. However, the word “metaverse”, a portmanteau of “meta-“ (meaning beyond) and “universe”, existed way before this. The term “Metaverse" is often credited to Author Neal Stephenson’s 1992 dystopic, sci-fi novel Snow Crash, and many see a more recent inspiration in Earnest Cline’s 2011 novel Ready Player One. Unlike what is portrayed in movies and blockbusters, the metaverse I’m talking about is far from the stuff of sci-fi - and we’re not unfamiliar to it. The concept of metaverse, also known to many as “Web3.0”, clearly means extremely different things to different people. The metaverse is currently split into two categories - a world of gaming and game creations, and a blockchain-based digital world. The former is made up of a series of embryonic digital spaces such as Facebook’s Horizon, Fortnite, and Roblox, while the latter houses Decentraland. These spaces have clear boundaries, different rules and objectives, and differing rates of growth. The metaverse could fundamentally change the way we interact with the digital world. In the same way, non-fungible tokens (NFT) have brought new opportunities to creators, artists, and gamers, the metaverse could very possibly not just reshape the creator economy, but invent it anew. MGH DAO organised a Twitter Spaces session inviting metaverse experts and enthusiasts to talk about Metaverses in general. - How far will the ongoing Metaverse trend go? - In what context is the Metaverse related to the Dataverse? - "MetaFi“ and now "DataFi"? - How is the Dataverse supporting fair pricing within the Metaverse? The MGH DAO strives to foster the convergence of DeFi, NFTs, the Metaverse, oracles and AI. The goal is to foster an ecosystem that enables access to decentralized NFT Pools and NFT Pool Tokens (synthetic assets tracking the pool value) and thus enhancing the value factor of NFTs without the sacrifice of ownership for NFT holders - they can stake their NFTs but do not have to sell them. Furthermore, MGH DAO will provide a sophisticated AI-based oracle that allows the analysis of the respective NFT’s fair value and seamless, transparent integration into the NFT Pool. Camilo Echeverri, Co-Founder & Operations mentioned "Seeing all these developments of play-to-earn and metaverses is really motivating because Web3 is going to change everything, especially in the way we interact on the Internet." When asked what is metaverse to him. His answer was "The metaverse is a place on the Internet where you can watch your favourite movies, play your favourite games, listen to your favourite artist, and do everything you like with your friends and family. Borget Sebastien, Co-Founder and COO, The Sandbox was also invited as a speaker for this session. "Imagine the metaverse as a digital parallel world where we can experience more social and immersive interactions from wherever we are in the world. We can choose our identity, play, collaborate, enjoy entertainment, and earn revenue. It will be fun and borderless." Anndy Lian, Chairman, BigONE Exchange commented too that "The economy is growing in metaverses. Cryptocurrency is playing a very big part in this whole development. A lot of governments do not have a good way to regulate De-Fi products. If we're going to add DAO or metaverse to the scenario, it will take them a long time to catch up. We have to exercise self-regulation and constantly communicate with regulators to provide updates on the progress in the space, in order to minimise misconceptions of the crypto world." What does the future hold for metaverse? With Facebook’s extravagant entrance to the metaverse, and even rebranding themselves as Meta, Zuckerberg announced plans to fund $10 billion this year on the development of the metaverse - an ecosystem of interconnected digital experiences, services, and platforms that seamlessly blend with the real world.

Anndy Lian on NewsX: India's Official Digital Currency. Time To Make A Shift?
The development of Bitcoin and thousands of other cryptocurrencies these past few years have left India needing to create a framework for the creation of an official digital currency, which will be issued by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). A bill in this regard is planned to be tabled in the upcoming winter session of the parliament. The Indian government is worried about the volatility of cryptocurrency, how it can be misused, and cryptocurrencies’ impact on the country and its economic situation. The primary idea of the RBI behind this move is to protect consumers from the appalling level of volatility seen in digital currency. The governor of RBI went to the extent of saying that cryptocurrencies pose a serious concern to the macroeconomic and financial stability of India. It has been reported that a huge amount of ₹$40,000 (rupees) have already been spent when it comes to cryptocurrency. Furthermore, the idea of cryptocurrency was, when it was formulated in 2008, to bypass the banking system. This brought rise to RBI’s worry that cryptocurrency will overtake the banking system when it comes to investments in India. Back when cryptocurrencies were banned in China, the fallout was that a lot of people and a lot of that investment and interest were redirected to the USA. India does not want to make that same mistake. It is almost certain that there will be a lot of problems if there is a blanket ban on cryptocurrency in India. India is all set to create a framework for the creation of an official digital currency that will be issued by RBI. NewsX invited a panel of experts to talk about the topic. The expert panel consists of Akash Jindal, Sr Economist; Siddhartha Sogani, CEO of Creabaco Global Inc., Bitcoin Expert; Hanif Shaikh, CEO of Upsocial Network, Crypto Expert and Anndy Lian, Chairman, BigONE Exchange and Founding Member of Influxo. News Anchor, Vineet Malhotra discussed the following topics: • How will this impact the total economic atmosphere of the country? • Are cryptocurrencies such a threat to the economic environment of any country? • What is the next step for India? • How important is the concept of decentralisation when it comes to cryptocurrency? Here’s what BigONE Chairman Anndy Lian had to say in an interview with India’s NewsX: The right direction is to embrace cryptocurrency in all manners - because cryptocurrency is here to stay. It is the future of currency. In whatever way that it is called - currency or digital asset - it must be embraced. Mainstream media may always say that cryptocurrencies are illegal as it may involve money laundering, among other things. But the fact is that the top currency used to carry out such illegal things is the very common US dollar. Every move made via a blockchain is recorded on the chain. If Bitcoin is sent to a dodgy account, it’s going to be recorded on the chain. How will these dodgy accounts cash it out? Will they be so daring to do that? BigONE is on the Top 40 list globally. All good exchanges must go through the same regulatory steps to ensure Know-Your-Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) processes are carried out. Through these frameworks, illegal acts are minimised. Decentralisation does not, in any way, mean the removal of governments of taxes. It must be emphasised that when it comes to decentralisation, there is no intention of moving away from countries’ legacy systems or financial systems. Nonetheless, people are living in the real world, and not in the metaverse. Actual, physical money is still required to live as we head into the future. The term “decentralisation” must not be tweaked in such a way that it is portrayed to be a bad thing. There exists proper entities - proper companies - to back the system. In the cryptocurrency world, everything needs to be registered. When founders of a project are doxxed, documentation to prove that will be kept in a centralised depository. If anything were to happen, tracing back to the p

Anndy Lian: "Opening Banking is good. Defi is better. It can fill up the existing financial gaps."
The modern-day, tech-savvy consumers’ demand for a more avant-garde service, gave rise to what’s now called the open banking revolution. And, it is changing the way transactional data is shared, used and stored outside Financial Institutions. This paradigm shift is actively transforming the payments landscape, and with cryptocurrencies squeezing their way toward the innovation space, it looks like it’s set to play a significant role. Crypto Curry Club spoke to BigONE Exchange Chairman, Anndy Lian to discuss the potentially life-changing opportunities that Open Banking brings and how crypto can be leveraged in this new scene. [00:02:01] Give an overview of what open banking is. How is this bringing some disruption and some benefits to the traditional roles of things like lending and credit? [00:04:51] Do you see any other benefits to the area of credit decision? [00:08:05] How specifically do you see open banking benefiting people who are either looking to get in crypto or who are already in the crypto space? [00:12:25] Have you seen a large take up for that sort of access of on ramping via open banking on your exchange? [00:15:58] What are some of the security benefits that open banking brings? [00:17:51] What do you see is next for open banking in terms of helping the credit, lending space, and the crypto exchanges picking up this technology of using open banking? "Open banking prevents fraud through authentication and verification of the validity of data. For financial service providers, open banking will allow financial service providers to significantly innovate on their product offerings to businesses. For businesses, opening banking will mean more effective and efficient financial tools in their business. For customers, it will mean better ways to spend, borrow, and invest. Opening Banking is good. Defi is better. It can fill up the existing financial gaps."

#LetsTalkCrypto- The NFT Boom on NewsX [5 November 2021]- Garrett Minks, Anndy Lian, Vishal Malhotra
NewsX's #LetsTalkCrypto Series talked about The NFT Boom. A non-fungible token is a unique and non-interchangeable unit of data stored on a digital ledger. NFTs can be used to represent easily-reproducible items such as photos, videos, audio, and other types of digital files as unique items, and use blockchain technology to establish a verified and public proof of ownership. The following were the guest for the segment: Garrett Minks, Founder & CTO, Rair Anndy Lian, Co-founder, INFLUXO Vishal Malhotra, Actor Vishal Malhotra, Actor said: "The utility is a big part of his NFT. It can be basically tokenized into a ticket which allows you to seat with me during the premiere of my next film. But my main intention is to create value for somebody who collects my NFT. I feel NFT is here to stay in a very big way especially in India." He is the first Indian actor to collaborate with an artist to do so. The art is a depiction of Vishal's 25 years in Bollywood and the most popular characters he has portrayed over these years. The NFT was sold for 2.5 ETH. Anndy Lian, Chairman of BigONE Exchange and Founding member of INFLUXO added: "NFT can be part of a purchase experience. In the past, if you purchase an artwork you can only show your friend at your house. But now with NFT digital artwork, you can show them the exact piece on your own metaverse."

They talked about trading, investing and other lessons learnt when dealing with crypto.

[00:13:21] Anndy Lian What else do you see needs to come in for crypto to be fully ideal for new investors, but also for institutional money aside from the regulation and ease of use?

Anndy Lian: Keynote Speech at Blockchain Summit LatAm 2021
Anndy Lian: Keynote Speech at Blockchain Summit LatAm 2021
Decentralized crypto initiatives and government moves to co-opt crypto show that Latin American is at the crossroads of a revolution in crypto adoption, said Anndy Lian, Chairman of BigONE Exchange, following a successful Blockchain Summit LatAm, which ended on September 10. “The news that El Salvador has launched Bitcoin as legal tender is encouraging news for the whole region, but such a decentralized currency needs to include education and practical tools for everyday use that are built with its users in mind – principles which are at the heart of our own global exchange,” he added. The trend towards greater use of cryptocurrency in Latin America is not hard to see. Between 2017 and 2020, the bitcoin volume in Latin America has an average of 6% of the volume of BTC globally. In March 2020, Latin America had a 15.8% share, compared to 6% in the US. In April 2021, the Latin American countries with the highest volume of cryptocurrencies are Colombia, with 45% of bitcoin volume in the region; followed by Peru with 13%; Chile with 12%; Mexico with 11%; and Brazil with 11%. Another trend is the growing commitment from Latin American governments to advance central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), with the Central Bank of Venezuela launching its CBDC in October. The region’s regulators aren’t uniformly in favor of cryptocurrency, however, so progress its likely to be uneven. While the LatAm conference was taking place Mauricio Moura, a director of the Central Bank of Brazil, stated that anonymity when using crypto won’t be a choice for users in future, an approach likely to be followed by other Latin American governments. Nevertheless, Visa’s vice president of new business in Brazil stated recently that the company will be testing direct bitcoin payments this year. The potential of decentralized digital assets to disrupt Latin American markets isn’t going away any time soon however, especially with the global boom in the market for NFTs.  In Latin America culture, where art, design, music, and sports are celebrated, the NFT market is starting to grow, such as Influxo’s Ronaldinho NFT supported by BigONE, which will be launched shortly. Although NFTs are still relatively new to Latin America marketplaces, it’s a part of the revolution in crypto adoption that will only increase in popularity.

Keynote speech by Anndy Lian: Understand DeFi to Build Regulatory Frameworks Around it
Keynote speech by Anndy Lian: Understand DeFi to Build Regulatory Frameworks Around it
Decentralized Finance (DeFi) is still in rapid growth. According to a report from CoinGecko, the industry has reached a $100 billion capitalization and over one million users. Global DeFi Investment Summit, 2-3 June 2021, Dubai brought experts globally together. Anndy Lian, Advisory Board Member to Hyundai DAC and also Chief Digital Advisor to Mongolian Productivity Organization gave a keynote presentation titled “Understand DeFi to Build Regulatory Frameworks Around it”. Anndy walked the audiences through the challenges of DeFi tokens. “In 2019, we were all experimenting. Then in 2020, we wonder if DeFi tokens have real value. But in 2021 onwards, we should look closely at them if they can survive the bear plunges, then survive the financial crisis and then a global crisis. This is a real test. This test is not for DeFi, it is for NFT, IDOs and the whole cryptocurrency space.” Lian highlighted that the decentralized governance of DeFi services poses operational challenges and if often not well understood in the exposures in financial risks and compliance issues. DeFi’s landscape is ever-changing and it is tough for the traditional finance industry to keep up. The governments are also playing catch up. “Regulators understand that it is hard to regulate DeFi DAPPS built on a fully public and decentralised blockchain and they do not trust “code is law” thesis, wherein law represents a set of rules that are written and enforced through immutable code as there are possibilities of errors and frauds. I have suggested to the governments to encourage participants in the DeFi Industry to have co-operative models to assume governance and liability of operating the platform. This also provides some guidance and protection to DeFi application users or investors. This is maybe an unpopular opinion to some but this could be one way to co-exist.” Anndy Lian said. At the end of the keynote speech, he urges the regulators to take this time to shape expectations by working with the right parties, while taking enforcement action against bad actors. Global DeFi Investment Summit is a 2-day Program being curated based on guidelines from industry experts, with a target of about 200+ delegates. The goal of this event is to connect global investors and DeFi experts in this space including emerging start-ups – with regional business and leaders from across key industry verticals. This event has also featured other keynote speakers like Justin Sun, Founder at TRON and Tim Draper, Founder at Draper Associates & DFJ.

Chained Together: How Blockchain is Improving Supply Chains
Chained Together: How Blockchain is Improving Supply Chains
Chained Together: How Blockchain is Improving Supply Chains is an online event organized by the Boston Blockchain Association. Blockchain is radically improving supply chains by making products easier to track, from the raw materials to the finished goods. Imagine a world where you'll be able to see not just where your coffee was grown or your iPhone was assembled, but every step in the process, all recorded on a transparent blockchain. This has huge implications for everything from fair trade and fair wages, to making companies and governments far more efficient. The Boston Blockchain Association has put together a distinguished panel of supply chain and blockchain experts to give all a state of where the industry stands today, including: Leanne Kemp, CEO and Founder of Everledger: Perhaps the most well-known blockchain + supply chain project in the world, Everledger started as an immutable ledger for diamond identification and transaction verification -- and has grown into a platform for measuring the "value chain" of everything from rare earth metals to designer handbags: https://www.linkedin.com/in/leannekemp/ Kristen Michaud, Managing Director at InBlock: Those of you who attended our "Diversity and Inclusion" event during Boston Blockchain Week raved about Kristen.

Keynote Speech by Anndy Lian: Navigating blockchain & cryptocurrency in the public sector
Keynote Speech by Anndy Lian: Navigating blockchain & cryptocurrency in the public sector
Anndy Lian, Advisory Board Member of Hyundai DAC Technology gives a keynote speech at the Digital Week Online on the topic "Navigating blockchain & cryptocurrency in the public sector". Digital Week Online is an online Summit held from 12-16th October 2020. This event unites tech entrepreneurs, authors, investors, innovators, leading corporates, and key governments At his keynote speech, Anndy shares his experiences on how to deal with the different governments while introducing blockchain and cryptocurrency in the most effective manner. He started by giving a quick overview. Stating that the blockchain technology is possibly one of the finest piece of art when it comes to this century. In simple words, this technology is a decentralized ledger and it is immutable, with core functions like traceability and tracking. It is and will be widely used in finance, manufacturing, supply chain and governments. But it has not welcomed by all especially when it comes to cryptocurrencies, in fact, cryptocurrencies have been denounced by several governments due to a number of reasons. For example, Bitcoin, the leading cryptocurrency, has been banned in some countries, including Nepal, Bangladesh, among others. Many other countries have in the past made it clear that they will not accept Bitcoin but will accept blockchain technology. "This is a good start for governments. For those who are currently dealing with governments or intend to participate in a public sector bid, please bear in mind that you need to address what is lacking and what can blockchain help them solve and not pure fluff." Anndy Lian commented. Anndy emphasises that governments are open to the technology so far based on his experiences on the ground when dealing with them. He goes on saying that food security, ID management and controlling the flow of money are some of the "hot" topics. Countries like Singapore, Estonia, South Korea are already embarking their journey to solve problems using blockchain technology together with their existing infrastructures. Navigating through the public sectors needs time and determination. Businesses must be ready before speaking to the government to sell their products and solutions. They need to build themselves up properly by building up trust and increase credibility through partnerships and with sufficient marketing. Your brand has to gain some traction before approaching them for any form of business. Anndy went on by highlighting that all these are only made possible if the solution providers are backed by real, solid technology that is robust enough to tackle their demand. He has also noted that many of the startup blockchain companies depended on advisors and consultants to make their sales and introduction. He cautioned again that companies must choose wisely and not deceived by their smooth talks as many of them do not have any real experience in the tech field and have not gotten deep in the blockchain space. Last but not least, he told all to be "Pragmatic". Only being real and practical will open up new paths for you. Anndy Lian's is known for his advisory work for governments. He plays a pivotal role as the Blockchain Advisor for Asian Productivity Organisation (APO), an intergovernmental organization committed to improving productivity in the Asia-Pacific region. He advises the Secretariat on the latest concepts and applications of blockchain technologies in cybersecurity and IoT network data integrity across smart factories and upskills the Secretariat staff in blockchain technologies as applicable to productivity. APO members include Bangladesh, Cambodia, Republic of China, Fiji, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Islamic Republic of Iran, Japan, Republic of Korea, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Anndy Lian: "Crypto Regulation & Commercialisation 2021" at Digital Assets Investment Conference
Anndy Lian gave a speech on "Cryptocurrency Regulation & Commercialisation 2021" at the Digital Assets Investment Conference on 13 November 2020. In his speech, he gave an overview of regulations for cryptocurrency globally for 2021 & beyond, commercial adoption & implementation, and finally trends to look out for in 2021. An Overview He started by sharing some positive headlines: - Investment banking giant JPMorgan is about to see the first commercial transactions with its own cryptocurrency, JPM Coin. - PayPal allows Bitcoin and crypto spending. It has gone live today. - Jack Dorsey's Square buys $50 million in bitcoin - Mode allocated up to 10% of cash reserves to purchase #Bitcoin​ and adopt it as a treasury reserve asset - DBS Bank Is Planning to Launch a Digital Asset Exchange - 22 Indian Bank Branches to Begin Offering Crypto Banking Services - Alibaba Founder Jack Ma: "Digital Currencies" Are the Future - World's Second-Biggest Bank, China Construction Bank (CCB) has tapped Labuan-based digital asset exchange Fusang for the issuance of $3 billion worth of debt securities over a blockchain. Then he also shared the not so positive headlines: - BitMEX founder arrested for violation of US anti-money laundering laws - China's OKEx halts cryptocurrency withdrawals after founder arrested - $150M Stolen by Hackers from KuCoin Crypto Exchange Based on the above, Anndy felt that this is a positive sign in his opinion and stated that the blockchain and cryptocurrency space is taking its shape. Regulations are catching up. Investors are more aware of what they are investing in. And it is heading for mainstream. Government attitude The surveyed countries have categorized cryptocurrencies differently for tax purposes, as illustrated by the following examples: Israel→taxed as asset Bulgaria→taxed as financial asset Switzerland→taxed as foreign currency Denmark→subject to income tax and losses are deductible United Kingdom→corporations pay corporate tax, unincorporated businesses pay income tax, individuals pay capital gains tax In Singapore, the nation has started recognizing cryptocurrencies in 2017. The Payment Services Act (PSA) in Singapore, which came into effect on 28 January 2020, stated that cryptocurrency businesses must obtain a license from MAS to comply with AML/CFT regulations. This expands to companies that both transfer cryptocurrency within Singapore and outside of Singapore. Similarly, more forward-looking countries have also started their public consultation for specific crypto-related bills to be passed. To sum up, in this part, Lian emphasizes that we have to follow the rules and be upfront and open when dealing on unclear grounds. Having said so, the crypto space has been shifting and changing very fast. Experts should also find channels to update governments of the latest developments like Defi, AMM, and PMM and keep them informed of the latest scams and Ponzi schemes in the market. Proper education and awareness must be told to their people to avoid any form of fraud. Leading exchanges like Binance are always giving free lessons and updates on the industry. Information from credible sources and channels like them should be a useful reference. A formalized think tank in blockchain and cryptocurrencies accredited by the government must also be set up to be the voice. Paths to commercialization There must be clear incentives for the stakeholders and clients to drive proper ROI on the blockchain solutions. It should potentially have the ability to create revenue and cost-saving outcomes by using this new technology. Blockchain technology implementation is no different from other technology. There must be clear strategic objectives, road maps, and specialized skill sets needed to drive commercialization and deliver business value.

Anndy Lian, Intergovernmental Blockchain Expert talks about "Crypto Investments" with Former CNBC Reporter
Cryptocurrencies are here to stay. These digital assets are going to be a permanent feature of banks and asset managers' investment portfolios in time to come. Newer terms such as DeFI (Decentralised Finance) is also changing the investment landscape by relying on a central authority to distribute the loans, etc. Blockchain technology has provided the technical workings for cryptocurrencies. While it looks promising there is also the risk of trading cryptocurrencies. It is volatile and susceptible to technical glitches, human error or hacking. Anndy Lian, an inter-governmental blockchain advisor and entrepreneur will explain what is cryptocurrencies and insights into this new market. This show is hosted by Rajeev Aggarwal, a former stock market reports at CNBC. "Understand crypto before putting your money in. You need to study their business model, revenue streams, team members and the underlying technology. If you believe in what the project is doing and you understand the risk, then you go for it. Always exercise with caution." Anndy Lian commented. Anndy Lian also commented that community support is another important factor for a cryptocurrency to work. Anndy mentioned this offline to Blockcast.cc reporter that meme coins are really popular, projects like DOGECOIN, KINGDOGE, SHIBA INU are gaining good traction. PANCAKE and SAFEMOON for instance are trending consistently for a long while. He emphasised that spotting the trends is one important factor in investing. "Invest in multiple baskets. Do not put all your eggs in one basket" is the message Anndy is trying to convey. The importance of diversification is more glaring when it comes to crypto investment. By spreading out your options between "Top 5 coins", "Active Trading Coins" and "Rising Stars" for example, you can decrease your financial risk. 00:00:00 Introduction 00:01:03 Bitcoin as an investment 00:03:09 Valuing Bitcoin 00:07:51 Price target for bitcoin 00:09:20 Bitcoin vs Ethereum 00:12:37 Ethereum utility 00:14:55 Doge Intro 00:17:28 Doge as an investment 00:19:58 Which coin to consider 00:23:41 NFT Intro 00:24:45 NFT as an investment 00:28:42 Million dollar Crypto portfolio About Anndy Lian: Anndy Lian is an all-rounded business strategist with more than 15 years of experience in Asia.

Anndy Lian: "Digitalization has struck every government as a priority" at Hong Kong Blockchain Week
18 November 2020/ BLOCKCAST.CC/ Anndy Lian and a panel of experts spoke on "Digital Transformation and Innovation: What's New for Governments and Businesses" at the Hong Kong Blockchain Week 2020. This session is timely as COVID19 has accelerated the pace of digital transformation, decision-makers who were reluctant to adopt and adapt have harnessed technology innovation to keep their companies afloat, and governments are relying on digital solutions to respond quickly to the global crisis. Digitalization has become essential and has brought up its real purpose in such times. According to ASME-Microsoft study 2020, 83% of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Singapore now have digital transformation strategies. More than half (54%) reported delays in their digitalization plans due to COVID-19. Also, despite higher digital transformation adoption, only two in five SMEs perceive their efforts to be successful. This study also coincides with what Olga Yaroshevsky, the moderator of this panel, has mentioned in global trends that only 30% of digital projects implemented have exceeded its target value. "This is not alarming, and this trend has happened long before the COVID19 times. Governments and associations are trying hard to push the technology agenda into businesses. Legacy is not the main issue. It is an excuse. I think human interference is a bigger deferral for the adoption of new technology. "Anndy Lian, Advisory Board Member, Hyundai DAC Technology commented. Lian added: "Whenever there is a new technology in place such as negativity, I do see much negativity that comes along with it. People do not see the positive aspects of things on such innovation. Many are too relying on government grants, which is a big disadvantage, for example. Take Singapore, for example. In the past decade, companies took advantage of the grants, but the result is that most of them stopped using it after the claims were made. This is mainly because of their mindset, and their starting point when obtaining the grant is not with the correct intention and purpose. For innovation to grow, it has to be a win-win for everybody, companies need to have the right mindset, and a good push from the government will kick start innovation in a much better manner." Dr. Toa Charm, Chairman, OpenCertHub & Associate, and Professor, CUHK Business School, agreed with Anndy's point. "The subsidy is helpful but not sustainable. Companies must appreciate the digital transformation culture and appreciate the digital transformation. In the times of COVID19, governments have placed additional subsidies and grants to SMEs and different programs, but this is only for a short period and may not be sustainable. We have to make it closer to what the companies are doing, embedding the technology in our daily lives seamlessly." Last but not least, Anndy emphasized, "Digitalization has struck every government as a priority never before. The move into digital with AI, big data, automation, blockchain & cryptocurrencies will stay with us for a long time." This session consists of Anndy Lian, Advisory Board Member, Hyundai DAC Technology, Dr. Ernie Teo, Vice-Chairman, Blockchain Association Singapore, Mohammad Sear, Associate Partner, Digital Government & Public Sector Advisory, EY, Dr. Toa Charm, Chairman, OpenCertHub & Associate and Professor, CUHK Business School and moderated by Olga Yaroshevsky, NexChange Group. The panelists have also shared their insights on the subject matter, and the full recording can be found online. Hong Kong Blockchain Week 2020, hosted by NexChange and led by their Chairman Juwan Lee delivers specialist content and expert discussions directly from industry leaders who are building the future of blockchain technology and digital assets.

Anndy Lian moderated a session on Fintech Market Analysis: The Impact of Interconnectivity in Singapore at the Singapore Cloud & Datacenter Digital Summit on 26 November 2020. In his speech, he shared his views future of the Fintech market and the role of Central Bank Digital Currencies and Cryptocurrencies (CBDC). "I think at the right time, and when there is a demand for cryptocurrency payments is there, it will drive the market towards crypto adoption. CBDC is the start of another evolution." Anndy Lian commented. Joel Yarbrough added, "Personally, I think the most compelling use case is CBDC. The digitalisation of currency helping cross border trading 24/7 with transparent foreign exchange is incredibly powerful." Anndy shared further that he is still advising governments in the region on blockchain matters and the more innovative ones are looking at using core crypto coins, e.g. XRP, BNB, LTC or stable coins to act as a bridge asset to exchange digital fiat aligned to their CBDC initiatives. He also highlighted separately that blockchain and cryptocurrencies companies must take the first step to showcase how their coin and technology can help the formation of the future CBDCs. This session came at the right time where the pandemic COVID19 accelerates Singapore's digital push. The drive for digitisation is more substantial than before and behind the powerful force is Singapore's Government taking the lead and setting aside more than S$500m to assist Singaporeans and local businesses manage the crisis through digital transformation. Today at another media interview, Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief Fintech Officer, Monetary Authority of Singapore mentioned that year to date, there are already $1.3 billion of Fintech investments made. The panel lead by Anndy Lian (Hyundai DAC Technology) and with panellists Khuan Yew Lee (Fave), Joel Yarbrough (Rapyd) and Varun Mittal (EY) discussed topics like: 1. What's driving the growth of contactless payments in the digital transformation of Singapore? 2. Fintech is an ever-evolving industry, with its mandate broadening with each iteration (1.0, 2.0 and now 3.0). At the same time, early fintech players like Paypal are at no risk of going out-of-date due to the evergreen necessity of payment platforms. Where do you see the most significant potential for fintech expansion in Singapore? 3. Many estimations are putting the adoption rate of digital payment platforms at an all-time high. Even for cloud-native companies, this presents capacity challenges. How do you deal with speeding up deployment to match this demand? 4. How do you see the embrace of blockchain influencing the fintech market (more than it already has)? Singapore Cloud & Datacenter Digital Summit organized by W.Media has brought the top 200 IT and data centre professionals to hear from industry leaders and new entrants on what to expect from a hub market, the downstream opportunities to the edge markets, and the innovation of technology in the space of Cloud Computing, connectivity, cybersecurity and data centres.

Anndy Lian Spoke at Economics Summit 2020: "Cryptocurrency recreates the future of finance."
COVID19 has brought uncertainty to every sector. The financial industry has not been spared. There are vital concerns that are emerging for the Banking & Capital Markets. Economics Summit 2020, held on 2 November 2020, gathered a panel of industry experts to discuss current challenges and share future insights on the topic. Anndy Lian, one of the panelists, shared insights on Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDC) and its form in the future. The panel consists of Kent Choi (Team Leader, Credit Suisse), Yvonne Zhang (Director, Risk Advisory, Deloitte), Andrew Colquhoun (Executive Director, Monetary Authority of Singapore), and Anndy Lian (Advisory Board Member, Hyundai DAC) and moderated by Pau Khua Mung. The topic of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDC) came up during the discussion. CBDC is known as a new type of currency that governments around the world are experimenting with. It is issued and controlled by the central bank is managed on a digital ledger or blockchain, the same technology that underpins cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin. CBDC also aims to expedite and increase the security of payments between banks, institutions, and individuals. Andrew Colquhoun, MAS, mentioned that: "Digital currencies are a key area for MAS and central banks globally. Consensus views across different institutions show no immediate urgent use case for CBDC in this region. Many central banks are adopting a wait and see approach and still on a consultation basis." Further accelerating central banks' considerations for the issuance of CBDC, Anndy Lian, Hyundai DAC added: "CBDCs are very early-stage and I believe CBDC is here to stay. CBDC is a form of digital fiat powered by blockchain for many, is traceable and accountable. It works 24/7, nonstop around the clock." He also went on to clarify that CBDC is not a cryptocurrency. "We must be clear on this and not lumped this (CBDC) into the bucket of cryptocurrencies. There are also crypto companies looking at adding cryptocurrencies on top of CBDC and acting as a bridge. But this is a different concept." Digital currencies are still early. It is essential to understand the pros and cons behind it. Digitalization has prompted both regulators and the public to demand increased privacy. Same for CBDCs. Many technologists believe that the right design structure for CBDCs will ensure privacy. "There are many misconceptions on the technology and concept. It will take time to design a suitable model. In my opinion, CBDCs complement and not replace cash. Cryptocurrency recreates the future of finance." Anndy sums up. Economics Summit 2020 is an annual event organized by SIM Economics Society (SIMES). SIMES is a student-led society at the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) committed to learning and researching global economic challenges. Kevin Kristano, VP in Marcomm, SIMES thanked all the speakers and his colleagues for making this event possible and told the reporter: "Covid-19 has accelerated a vast array of technology adoption and digital transformation in several industries, like banking and finance. I believe that this change is imminent, regardless of the pandemic. I look forward to how this technological shift would affect the global economy." The two days summit ended on 2 November 2020.

Anndy Lian X-rays the Cryptocurrencies Hype
Anndy Lian X-rays the Cryptocurrencies Hype
Anndy Lian spoke about at the event titled "The Cryptocurrencies Paradox: Hype, Reality, Opportunities" on 4 May 2021. This event is organised by the People's Association and supported by South East Community Development Council at the Geylang Serai Virtual Community Club. Blockchain technology is a system of recording information in a way that makes it difficult or impossible to change, hack, or cheat the system. This technology is often linked to "cryptocurrency". A cryptocurrency, broadly defined, is virtual or digital money that takes the form of tokens or “coins" has been the buzz word. The two terms come into the limelight again in the mainstream media thanks to bitcoin, ethereum and dogecoin lately. Elon Musk "Blockchain technology is definitely is not hype. Governments and corporates are adopting the technology. Cryptocurrencies on another hand have a speculative angle. There is hype, just like many other exciting assets. Most importantly, when we look at crypto, we should not be looking at the price only, hype is temp, the real substance behind the coin is when you see the utility of the coin in the real life." Anndy Lian told the live audiences. Anndy has also mentioned that the trend right now in the market is NFT and DeFi. Ethereum who is the second biggest cryptocurrency, behind bitcoin should also be carefully watched. The coin is at $3,400 at the time of the live telecast is gaining traction after the announcement of 'EP 1559' fee market structure. "Ethereum is like oil in the crypto space. It has big followings, liquidity and a proven ecosystem. The fees are high now, but it should be lower when changed to POS. The burning mechanism will be a game-changer for the chain. To add on, layer 2 are also working hard to make the chain faster, cheaper and more scalable as we speak. We should not be worried about the fees now. If you are very worried you can switch to Binance Smart Chain, they are a good choice too." At the event, Anndy has also addressed the following: - The current bitcoin and doge trends. - How do you evaluate and decide to invest in a project/ coin? - Is crypto a good long term investment? - What should I do if I got into a scam crypto investment? - Should I invest in crypto? How do I buy it? At the end of the event, Anndy cautioned all that investing in crypto is subject to high risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest.

Anndy Lian Spoke at Global DeFi Summit "Do the right thing for DeFi for it to grow."
Anndy Lian, an early adopter of blockchain and cryptocurrency spoke at the Global DeFi Summit on 6 January 2021. "Decentralized Finance (DeFi) will see a stronger interest from institutional investors this year. The macroeconomic trends of low-interest rate globally will also mean DeFi is more relevant to the companies. Traditional finance world keeps breaking, money and people will be redirected to Defi." Anndy Lian shared. 1. What is the fastest-growing DeFi area or trend in 2021? Defi will continue to grow rapidly in 2021. A) Staking on Defi will grow faster than in 2020. This is closely linked to Ethereum 2.0. The launch of 2.0 is a critical step towards scaling ETH to a much larger capacity. The shift to POS allows huge amount of wealth to be staked as collateral. I would also think more users will not leave their ETH on exchanges. This then spurred to another observation. B) I think there will be more Cefi and Defi integration in 2021. We will see integrations in traditional products. Crypto backed derivatives and cross-chain products will hit its peak by Q3 2021. We may also be seeing more crypto proprietary trading in 2021. 2. What challenges should we expect to arise for DeFi in 2021? Will regulators attempt to restrict or limit it in any way? The challenges did not change. The reason why Defi grew so fast is due to the flawed financial structure. Governments will step in hard for 2021 but they are still playing a catch-up game. Based on what I know, governments know there are underlying enforcement issues. They are resorting to looking at using on-chain digital id to track and trace and enforce AML but this will again take time. For example, DeFi lending projects will most likely be regulated in a similar way as financial institutions that offer margin lending. They will also be asked to register as a bank, a non-bank lender or a broker. In conclusion, Anndy emphasized that we need to work closely together in this ecosystem and do the right thing for DeFi to grow.

It also gives traditional businesses a chance to adopt new technologies, maybe crypto too." Anndy Lian said. Gordon Einstein echoed by saying "Crisis is an opportunity for change." The panel also discussed how the west and east look at innovation. Richard Wang commented and quoting AI as an example. "USA has better technology in term of the algorithm. China has a good market. they have a huge market. But I do believe we have a substantial advantage over USA companies." Aly Madhavji countered by saying data availability and protection is the key. "China has a different philosophy, and they actually tend to look at it more collectively. Their government can help to enable access to major companies to that data. But in Europe, it is very difficult to do these things." Lastly, Gordan asked where are the other opportunities that we should look out for. Nisa Amoils mentioned South East Asia and Africa. Anndy Lian also agreed with Nisa. "We should look at ASEAN as a bloc, there is a population of 700 million. This will be a big region for adoption and business for innovation."

Companies are now more open to look at this technology. Companies that are more forward-looking are also looking at the potential of tokenising their assets. The regulatory momentum that began in 2020 will continue in 2021 as regulators around the world seek to either fit blockchain technology into existing regulatory frameworks or build out new approaches.

Should Wealth Managers Embrace Digital Assets?
Should Wealth Managers Embrace Digital Assets?
2020 was the year Crypto went Institutional and with some of the large institutions investing into Crypto including Private Banks, Asset Managers and wealth managers, we will discuss the fundamental drivers behind this market to help wealth managers understand the role of digital assets in portfolio construction. We will examine where this market is going, what are the opportunities and associated risks. Questions covered: - Define our terms: How best to understand what Bitcoin is? - Why does the market exist, what’s driving it and how? - Why wealth management clients should consider digital assets and how can they be part of portfolios? - What challenges exist for private bankers and wealth managers in handling this business, such as around custody, settlement, regulatory controls? Webinar Objectives: - To clearly define and explain Crypto Assets and achieve a clear understanding of this asset class - Discuss the benefits it can give a client portfolio, while assessing the risks and trying to reduce these - Offer a discussion forum for questions related to this asset class This webinar is held on 9th March 2021, organised by WealthBriefing and Nickel Digital. Speakers include Anatoly Crachilov, Founding Partner & CEO, Nickel Digital; Anndy Lian, Intergovernmental Blockchain Advisor; and Evrard Bordier, CEO and Managing Partner Bordier & Cie, Singapore. "Bitcoin's set cap makes it more reliable than other scarce assets. It will eventually function as a store of value and as a means of payment, even though that might not be the case today. At this point, the inherent deflationary nature of Bitcoin leads to hoarding and speculation, driving price volatility. But once Bitcoin has finished accumulating value, when it has become a large and liquid asset, it will be much more stable than it is today. This trend is already visible." Anndy Lian commented during the event. Crypto Assets are a relatively new asset class very different from traditional asset classes but one that can add real value as an uncorrelated source of returns. Nickel Digital has just recently finished an analysis reflecting an impact of 1%-3% allocation to Bitcoin within a standard 60% equity / 40% fixed income portfolio. The findings (over a statistically significant 8-year period) indicate that such a controlled allocation not only boosts performance of the underlying portfolio, but also improves Sharpe ratio, thus resulting in a more efficient portfolio construction. Speakers: Anatoly Crachilov Founding Partner & CEO, Nickel Digital Anatoly is an investment professional with 25 years of experience in investment management and private equity. Prior to co-founding Nickel Digital in 2019, Anatoly was for seven years with investment management divisions of Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan dealing with asset allocation and portfolio construction.

Money Mind tells you how to make the most of your money with tips for investors, business ideas for businessmen and analysis of the economy, companies, markets, financial products and trends. In this segment of Money Mind, Pamela On tells us more about the current NFT trends. A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unit of data stored on a blockchain (a digital ledger) which can represent a unique digital item like art. An NFT is a cryptographic token, but unlike cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and many network or utility tokens, NFTs are not mutually interchangeable, i.e. not fungible. (Wikipedia). The following experts shared their take on NFT. 1) Journey Li, APAC Marketing Manager, Elliptic 2) Anndy Lian, Advisory Board Member, Hyundai DAC 3) Kelvin Goh, Head of Wealth Advisory, OCBC 4) Cao Yin, NFT Collector "NFTs are not just for purely for collectables, right now at this current moment especially, I see a lot of these big purchases and big valuation. This is actually part of a process to let people know what NFT is." - Anndy Lian While Anndy sees this as an awareness process right now, Cao Yin explains his point of view as a collector. "The original reason for collecting these items (NFTs) is to collect, and not to transact, and not to "buy low, sell high" and profit from it."- Cao Yin CNA is an English-language news channel based in Singapore. It broadcasts free-to-air domestically and as a subscription network to 29 territories across Asia and Australia. This is a view capture on Channel News Asia (CNA) Live.

Anndy Lian Spoke at Crypto Art NFT/ DeFi Event "NFT has to move beyond art, into finance."
Anndy Lian Spoke at Crypto Art NFT/ DeFi Event "NFT has to move beyond art, into finance."
Anndy Lian and TokyoCrypto catch up at the Crypto Art NFT Event on Twitch, 10 April 2021. This event is produced by NFT.Black and partnering with Beyond Finance. NFT stands for non-fungible token, are pieces of digital content linked to the blockchain, the digital database underpinning cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and ethereum. Unlike NFTs, those assets are fungible, meaning they can be replaced or exchanged with another identical one of the same value, much like a dollar bill.NFTs aren't exactly new. CryptoKitties, a digital trading game on the cryptocurrency platform Ethereum, was one of the original NFTs, allowing people to purchase and sell virtual cats that were both unique and stored on the blockchain. NFT catches the trend this quarter and is the most talked-about topic currently in the crypto-verse. It’s popularity is in part driven by the fact that anybody can tokenise their work to sell as an NFT but interest has been fuelled by recent headlines of multi-million-dollar sales. On 19 February, an animated Gif of Nyan Cat - a 2011 meme of a flying pop-tart cat - sold for more than $500,000. A few weeks later, musician Grimes sold some of her digital art for more than $6m. It is not just art that is tokenised and sold. Twitter's founder Jack Dorsey has promoted an NFT of the first-ever tweet, with bids hitting $2.5m. Christie's sale of an NFT by digital artist Beeple for $69m (£50m) set a new record for digital art. Anndy Lian was also interviewed by Channel News Asia (CNA) Insider last week. (https://anndy.com/interview/is-digita...​) In the event, Anndy shares his views on crypto in general. TokyoCrypto also asked Anndy about NFT, DeFi, on-chain custodian and more. At the end of the event, Anndy brought up an interesting point. "Combine cross-chain capabilities from tech companies like CZZ (Classzz.com) with NFT multi-chain marketplace like Hodooi.com would be interesting. Companies should come together to create a better-decentralised environment for this industry and not work alone." Lian has also told a reporter from Blockpaths.com that NFT has to move beyond art, into finance. "NFT is not just about art. It is also way beyond the current hype. The real capability for NFT is not fully tapped on. Its ecosystem and infrastructure are still in the building stage, we will definitely see its true self in the near future."

Anndy Lian's Take on Short Selling: What is it? Why is it Risky and How this will affect Crypto?
Anndy Lian's Take on Short Selling: What is it? Why is it Risky and How this will affect Crypto?
Anndy Lian, Advisory Board Member to Hyundai DAC participated in event “Global Roundtable Review” organised by Block Review. Anndy Lian talked about the recent short selling incident for Gamestop and investors worked through social media to gain an advantage. The following is a summary of Anndy’s speech: An overview of the Gamestop saga: What is a short squeeze? The last week of events is unprecedented in my opinion. When you buy a stock, you own it and the price goes up due to the company’s performance and all. But when you short it, you are basically betting on the stock to do badly. Some hedge funds are shorting a couple of stocks. They shorted more than a 100%. The reddit group used publicly available information, went in to buy the stocks and driving the price up, they created a short squeeze. The group drove up the price of the stock, leading to the hedge fund paying more than what they had sold it for before returning the borrowed shares, at the cost of professional traders. That led to stopping Robinhood app that is targeted at mass retail investors to buy the stock. Forcing a crash and despite all these, the stock went back up. The people are winning. If Gamestop new share holders were to hold them long enough, the hedge funds will go out of business. Melvin Capital lost 53% of their investment. Elon Musk and many other celebrities are also tweeting asking all to buy and hold. This movement has become organic. What should investors know before shorting stocks? Investors need to know what kind of risk they are getting themselves in. If you've ever lost money on a stock, you've probably wondered if there's a way to make money when stocks fall. There is, and it's called short selling. Even though it seems to be the perfect strategy for capitalizing on declining stock prices, it comes with even more risk than buying stocks the traditional way. Investing in stocks in the usual way is risky enough. Short selling should be left to very experienced investors, with large portfolios that can easily absorb sudden and unexpected losses. How risky is it to be following leads on forums (like reddit) If you are in investment groups or on social media, there are many groups soliciting to jab individual stocks. This is not something new. Social influencers are also doing this, in the stocks and crypto market. I would say it is very dangerous to follow blindly to the “financial advice” on social media as many times the expected outcomes are not what you want. This time this Reddit group managed to make it, but what about the hundreds or even thousands of times where retailor investors got hurt. In the Gamestop saga, was there institutional money (the other camp) pushing the squeeze? Will blockchain technology help? I hope not, else we will be losing faith in this so call free, open market in USA. I would believe not all hedge funds are bad. There are a small handful of bad actors right now. Nasdaq CEO is calling regulators to come in and account for what has been done. Regulators should get to the bottom of this, how is it possible for them to short more than 100% of the stocks. The system must be upgraded. In order to have a fair market, this is also a perfect time to look at blockchain technology, this the same technology that is backing up Bitcoin and many others. Blockchain technology will improve transparency and efficient too. The reddit group - called SatoshiStreetBets - has driven up price of Doge, similar to how WallStreetBets did for GameStop. DOGE started rallying after a Twitter user calling himself the chairman of WallStreetBets (though who is not affiliated with the subreddit) asked followers about the cryptocurrency. “What you are seeing on DOGE is not a short squeeze. It is the effects of social media gathering and working together. You cannot short sell or squeeze DOGE. It’s only rising because of speculation.” This DOGE movement is used to demonstrate how users can manipulate prices if they m
