Linfinity CEO Anndy Lian: “Blockchain + Supply Chain + AI” brings a deep trace of the new IoT world

Linfinity CEO Anndy was interviewed by JINSE Finance recently, he suggests that the integration of cutting edge technology instancing blockchain, supply chain and AI will present us a world where the performance of source-tracking+IoT reaches a new high.

 

Anndy Lian was already a shrewd businessman with multiple commercialization success before stepping into the realm of blockchain. His international insights and vision in supply chain industry come from his Singapore-originated commerce company, eight years in Korea and trading experience of more than 30,000 goods. His background also tells him that the supply chain market is long craving for something which helps fix this long existing pain point- a lack of trust.

The emergence of blockchains gives Anndy enough space for imagination, and this distributed structure and traceable technical features seem to have provided the possibility of solving the ‘pain point’ of the traditional supply chain – thus his blockchain journey with Linfinity has officially started.

 

Covering the whole process of commodity production to realize the in-dept tracking

 

To solve the ‘pain point’ of supply chain is to build a credible supply chain ecosystem. Anndy has set 3 main directions for Linfinity.

Tech service: Relying on the past IoT advantage, to integrate the supply chain, blockchain and  artificial intelligence to achieve the core value of technical service.

In-depth commodity source-tracking: From raw materials to warehousing, then to the whole logistics with thorough blockchain coverage, so that traceability with blockchain maximizes the effectiveness of anti-counterfeiting.

Recyclable ecosystem: Use blockchain to track goods in the whole life cycle for better recycling and environmental protection.

 

In such a system, we can understand and verify the details of every node from the source to the terminal only by scanning the code.

 

“Linfinity’s traceability to drugs , cosmetics and tobacco has been relatively mature . Although the two-dimensional codes don’t look much different physically, yet there is no two same codes in the world when blockchain technology is applied. Each is recorded on the chain, which has been greatly improved for traditional anti – counterfeiting, ” says Anndy.

 

Linfinity has already been strategic partnership with eight enterprises, and more companies will be involved. At early July, during the Asian Blockchain Summit held in Taiwan, Linfinity and Taiwan Alishan Group signed a strategic cooperation agreement, which will provide blockchain anti-counterfeiting technology for its cigarette brands and effectively eliminate counterfeits from the market. In August, Linfinity will expand the business to the UK , mainland China , Taiwan area of China, etc ., and Linfinity’s service will be combined with multiple products in different supply chains.

Three in one” makes the idea of blockchain plus IoT more realistic

 

At present, there are many companies in the blockchain+IoT field, but due to the disconnection between technology and industry, many people think that moving such a large IoT into the blockchain seems to be somewhat “emptiness”.And Anndy who takes “blockchain + supply chain + AI” as a pragmatic key, is convinced that the current practice is moving towards the initial goal:

 

“I never doubt the value of the IoT+ blockchain. Nowadays, companies of all sizes have not really understood how IoT can promote their business.In other parts, perhaps because there is not a broad perspective or there is not enough money to put the idea of blockchain + IoT into practice, I think this is why some people think that IoT is not reliable.”

 

Anndy believes that people can’t work alone if they hope IoT can play great potential under the blockchain. Many people say that they don’t believe in IoT, but in Linfinity’s philosophy, IoT should have a clear direction in the future, and AI+ blockchain is the realistic solution proposed by Linfinity for IoT.

 

“This combination can greatly increase the frequency and production capacity of IoT, and the entire market can improve efficiency while maintaining sufficient transparency”.Anndy also pointed out that the current efforts of Linifinity are to cultivate the starting industry , he believe that after one year, more applications will be landing.

 

How to promote the Linfinity business, manufacturer is one of the breakthroughs.Anndy makes more manufacturers understand the great value of blockchain in traceability,then show the company’s overall concept and overall strength, lets the manufacturers drive consumers to participate in the use of Linfinity.

 

The role of issuing Tokens is first to establish ecology, not ” playing with capital”.

Linfinity made it clear from the beginning that it would not do any ICO projects.

 

“LFT Tokens are not for sale. If you issue 70% of Tokens to the market, you can’t control the value. There are definitely a lot of people going to speculate. The role of Tokens must be to provide a reasonable stimulus for the construction of ecology, and we still have to focus on industry, so the control of Tokens is stricter. We just made a Token-based economic model, and our fans can get Token rewards by scanning the code using the Linfinity system.”

 

Anndy believes that Token is a “binder” that binds the interests of manufacturers and consumers tightly to achieve a win-win situation. For the cooperation with the manufacturers, Anndy has generously presented Tokens, which aims to let the company do several rounds of experiments in the environment of Linfinity to verify and improve the whole system.

 

At present, Linifinity has a team of more than 60 people all over the world. They have targeted the development of markets in various countries and regions, covering different types of goods such as food, medicine, tobacco and coffee. With more and more landing scenes, Anndy is very confident about the value of Tokens.

 

“Because we are directly facing the enterprise, only when the value of Tokens is increased, it is possible to further stimulate the enthusiasm of the manufacturer to use the system. Therefore, in order to make the LFT such an Untility Token really work, we should also be cautious about the Token’s value.”

Anndy tries to convey the long-term value of the blockchain to people, and will continue to work to change the existing industries with blockchain, solve the pain points and achieve a win-win situation.

金色财经独家专访 Linfinity CEO Anndy Lian:“区块链+供应链+AI”带来深层溯源的IoT新世界

内容摘自《金色财经》:https://www.jinse.com/blockchain/213905.html

近日,Linfinity CEO Anndy Lian接受了金色财经独家专访,他围绕“区块链+供应链+AI”技术的整合,向我们展现来自深层溯源IoT的新世界。

入局区块链前Anndy Lian已经是一个成功的商人。他不仅在新加坡经营几家贸易公司,也在韩国经商8年,交易了3万种产品,积累了供应链中的大量经验。而也正是经历了供应链中的各个场景,Anndy充分感受到了传统供应链中的各个“痛点”——缺乏信任。

区块链的出现,给了Anndy足够的想象空间,这种分布式结构与可溯源的技术特点,似乎已经为解决传统供应链的“痛点”提供了可能性——他的Linfinity区块链之旅正式开启。

 

覆盖商品生产交换的全过程 实现深层溯源

解决供应链“痛点”就是要构建一套可信任的供应链生态,为此Anndy为Linfinity设置了3个主要方向:

一、技术服务:依托以往的IoT优势,让供应链、区块链、人工智能结合起来,成就技术服务的核心价值;

二、商品的深层次溯源:从原材料、到仓储、到整个物流用区块链全面覆盖,让区块链溯源最大限度的达到防伪的功效;

三、可回收的环保生态:用区块链跟踪货品的使用中和使用后的过程,以此进行回收与环保;

 

在这样的系统之下,只用通过扫码就可以了解或验证一件商品从源头到终端各个环节的详细信息。

“Linfinity在药品、化妆品、烟草方面能做到的溯源已经比较成熟。虽然二维码看上去没有太大区别,但每一个都不同,每一个都记录在链上,这已经对于传统防伪有了很大的改进”Anndy如是说到。

目前,Linfinity已经与8个厂商进行了战略合作,且还会有更多企业参与起来;7月初,台湾举办的亚洲区块链峰会期间,Linfinity与台湾阿里山集团签署战略合作协议,将为其旗下的香烟品牌提供区块链防伪技术,用区块链有效杜绝假货横行市场;8月,还会将业务拓展到英国、中国大陆、中国台湾地区等地进行推广,用Linfinity结合多种产品的供应链。

“三合一” 让区块链加IoT的想法更加现实

当前,做区块链+IoT领域的公司不少,但由于技术与产业脱节,很多人认为把IoT如此大的一个盘子搬进区块链显得有些“虚无”。而坚定的以“区块链+供应链+AI”当做一把务实钥匙的Anndy,确信目前所做的实践正在向初始目标迈进:

“我从来不怀疑IoT+区块链的价值,现在的大大小小的公司目前还没有真正理解IoT怎么样去促进他们经营的提升,另一部分,也许因为没有足够广阔的视角、或者没有足够的资金让区块链+IoT的想法付诸实践,我认为这就是目前有些人认为IoT’不靠谱’的原因。”

Anndy相信,要想让IoT在区块链下发挥出巨大的潜力,独自奋战是不行的。有许多人说他们不信IoT,但Linfinity的理念中,IoT应该有一个未来明确的方向,而AI+ 区块链就是Linfinity为IoT提出的现实方案。

“这样的结合,可以大大提升IoT的使用频率和生产能力,整个市场是可以在保持足够的透明度的情况下提升效率的。”Anndy也指出,目前Linifinity所做的努力正是培育行业“幼儿”,相信在一年之后,更多的应用都将正式落地。

如何推进Linfinity事业,厂商是突破口之一。Anndy让更多的厂商了解到区块链在溯源中存在的巨大价值,然后将企业的全局理念和总体实力展现出来,让厂商驱动,带动消费者共同参与到Linfinity的使用中来。

Anndy试图向人们传递区块链的长远价值,并将继续致力于用区块链改变现有产业,解决痛点,实现双赢。

Linfinity:区块链技术应用落地的先驱者和实践者

自区块链诞生的第一天起,各行各业对它的关注和讨论就从未减退。这不仅仅是因为它创造了比特币或者加密货币,而是源于它背后所蕴含的对传统组织的变革能力和伴随而来的巨大商机。

Linfinity无疑是区块链技术应用落地的先驱者和实践者,Linfinity在不同国家及地区,多次举办了针对区块链行业发展的圆桌会议,不仅吸引了许多区块链爱好者的参与,还汇聚了众多如金融、投资、酒店、房地产等行业专家,提出了许多区块链之于传统行业发展的真知灼见。

区块链将如何改变我们的生活?

 

“区块链技术对于全行业来说,无疑是一场变革。区块链和加密货币是无法阻止的大趋势。比如,食品安全问题,如果区块链技术早点出现且能应用落地推广,那么奶制品问题、疯牛病牛肉问题,或许都可以迎刃而解。”

—–Elaine Chia( 新加坡银行副董事)

分布式结构与溯源性,是区块链最大的两个特点。Linfinity通过信息上链,来达到各个区块中信息相互认证,这样的好处是无论我们身在何处,都可以对我们想要了解的信息进行查看与溯源,而这些信息是可信的、公开透明的、安全的,且不能人为篡改的。

 

这项技术适合运用于多种行业,特别是对于食品行业、快消品行业、奢侈品行业、金融行业、医药行业等尤为显著。只要这些行业的产品信息“上链”,消费者便可以对它们所存在的各个流通环节信息查验与认证真伪。而这对传统行业的防伪来说,是其无法触及与实现的。

 

区块链:是福还是祸?

 

“基于房地产行业的特殊属性,每天都存在着大量的资金流转与交易发生,对于引入区块链技术,迫在眉睫。”   

—–Seed Global Investment的房地产顾问Edward Tan

区块链从诞生的第一天开始,就面临着“毁誉参半”的窘境,这一切都是源于人们还未能对区块链技术有一个清晰的认识,区块链的“福”与“祸”并不取决于区块链本身,而是在于“我们”如何正确的使用这项新技术,来发挥它应有的价值。

区块链技术的优势,不仅体现在交易透明和追溯,还有望简化管理流程,从而提高管理效率。例如,将区块链植入银行或金融体系,可以使得借贷融资变得有据可查、且安全高效。

无论区块链是福是祸,值得肯定的是,它确实加快了在某些领域和行业的发展进程,这也就是为什么Linfinity已经开始为供应链行业提供区块链化的解决方案。

 

ICO:合法吗?

 

近期,ICO骗取投资者数百万美元成了头条新闻,诈骗公司通常以各种“莫须有”的白皮书或者找所谓的币圈“名人”站台兜售空气币来非法集资,严重侵害到投资者的资产权益。于是人们开始对区块链口诛笔伐,甚至对区块链应用保持着犹豫和怀疑的态度。

 

数字代币交易所和ICO数量持续增长,如果采用一刀切的方式,势必会伤害到那些遵纪守法的区块链企业,但她同时也指出,应该加快出台关于ICO项目的政策监管,以促进行业的良性发展。”

—–新加坡金融管理局(MAS)资本市场副总经理Lee Boon Ngiap

 

Linfinity只专注于区块链技术的应用普及与落地,所以不打算开展ICO的融资,我们认为的金融代币都应该按着它自己所有的规律去运行,只有这样才可以真正利用“代币模式”惠及整个行业。

区块链技术实际应用

 

迄今为止,Linfinity已在新加坡和包括Crossinvest,RHTLaw TaylorWessing LLP,RHT Holdings,RONGDE Logistics,Scientific Tradition,WealthBriefingAsia等多家国际企业签订战略合作协议,并将在两地区达成更多合作。

 

这些协议标志着Linfinity已经着手于打造以区块链系统为基础的值得信赖可追踪的供应链生态,使区块链技术从概念转变为现实。该合作协议的范围涉及金融、法律、物流、快消等,合作公司将使用Linfinity的区块链技术,提高自身企业供应链的效率和透明度。

 

 

此外,在台湾Linfinity与阿里山集团签署战略合作协议。根据协议,Linfinity将会在该企业与消费者之间构建一座防伪溯源的“诚信之桥” 。

 

“区块链将会与造纸术、印刷术乃至互联网技术一样,改变人们的生活方式和众多行业发展的未来。”

Anndy Lian: Linfinity将是重塑供应链生态的中坚力量

区块链即将带来一场空前的产业革命。这一切都归结于区块链之于网络的分布式、分散式的存储方式与强大的存储能力。凭借这一优势,它可以为企业或组织提供更好的优质服务,例如,提高效率、信息透明、加强网络安全等。Juniper Research的一项研究表明,有超过三分之二的企业表示,愿意引入区块链技术,而这一技术也是前所未有的,新的用户连接方式。

诞生于新加坡的Linfinity是将区块链技术与跨境供应链行业相结合的先驱者,旨在通过区块链技术建立一个值得信赖和可追溯的防伪供应链解决方案。它在降低供应链管理成本的同时,也增加了商品流转的安全性。通过在不同行业中的不同应用,Linfinity看到了区块链在各行各业所暗含的巨大潜能,比如,食品行业、快消品行业、甚至是金融市场。

日前,Linfinity首席执行官Anndy Lian接受新加坡938Now电台–区块链系列专访时,对于Linfinity着眼于将区块链技术应用于供应链行业发表了一系列独到见解。

Linfinity在物流行业中所起到什么样作用?  

在物流行业,Linfinity着眼于整个供应链系统。目前,Linfinity正在努力构建一个将区块链和传统物流有机结合的一套生态系统。在这套体系中,我们很容易查看如原材料供给、物流、配送等具体情况;不仅如此,Linfinity在其他方面也有所触及。最近,在韩国的Linfinity Talk中,也谈到Linfinity在供应链物料回收中起到的重要作用。除此之外,我们还有兴趣与不同行业或组织来进行区块链整合,如银行、金融机构等。

 

Linfinity扮演着什么样的角色?是让参与的公司自行管理供应链,还是由Linfinity代为管理?

目前,Linfinity在区块链的商业应用合作中,主要有以下两种模式:

1、Linfinity协助他们上链管理,直到它们可以自己独立运行,或者和它们一起共建生态;

2、如果对方拥有自己的区块链,这些链上的信息将会变得非常私密,而Linfinity会将这些链上的信息,嫁接到Linfinity自己的区块链中来供以对方使用。

Linfinity是否是一个区块链技术解决方案的提供商?还有其他友商吗?

是的,Linfinity就是一位提供区块链技术解决方案的先驱者,据我所了解,我们现在可能是行业内的第一个,但我相信这个行业一定会出现更多的友商,来一起促进这个行业的蓬勃发展。这就是区块链行业之“道”。

 

终端客户信息透明的问题,如何依靠区块链技术和Linfinity生态来得以改善?

如果你看一个特定的行业,比如化妆品行业,从产品生产到门店终端,整个供应链各个环节相当复杂且繁琐,要改变整条产业链是很困难的。我们发现了化妆品行业普遍的一个痛点——“假货横行”,尤其对于一些名牌,所导致社会影响是致命的。

这是一个相当严重的问题,如果按照传统的供应链系统,所有的产品数据是中心化存储的,这样的结构非常容易受到黑客的攻击,如调整生产日期等;而使用去中心化的区块链技术,使得每个数据节点必须相互认证,以此来确保产品身份的正品属性。

Linfinity着眼于这些痛点,针对于化妆品行业,提出了一系列解决方案。首先,降低防伪成本,其次是运用区块链,提升品牌形象。

基于区块链技术,让产品信息变得更加透明,以此达到跟踪和防伪的目的。这将是一个商家与消费者共建的“信任生态”,它具有更好的品牌共识与更优质的用户体验。

 

Linfinity的出现是否意味着假货的消失?

会的,随着链上的区块数量不断增加,各环节相互认证也会相应增长,这使得造假行为变的更加艰难。传统的物理防伪是通过扫描二维码、RFID标签或条形码来确认真假,不幸的是这些代码都很容易被造假者复制伪造;而对于Linfinity,依托区块链的分布式特点,我们可以创造出自己唯一认证的标记——Linfinity Mark。它可以让人们了解到,一旦你扫描了这种特制的二维码,便可以追踪和验证产品的所有信息。

 

Linfinity现在的商业实践进程如何?

一个月前,Linfinity已经与一些新加坡的大型公司签署了6份谅解备忘录,其中一家便是非常传统的物流公司。如果借助于区块链技术的优势,他们会发展的更好。例如,提高管理效率,以及发现潜在的食品安全问题等。

此外,在台湾,Linfinity已经与阿里山集团签署战略合作协议,将为其旗下的香烟品牌提供区块链防伪技术。同时,Linfinity还洽谈过一些中国的食品供应商,他们都面临着货物丢失与水果不新鲜的严重问题。如果他们运用区块链技术将信息上链,那么这些问题都将迎刃而解——货物变得可以被追踪、水果信息将一目了然。

为什么有一些人会对区块链持怀疑态度?你觉得人们应该如何看待区块链这项新技术?

对于区块链的误解主要来源于人们对它的不了解。区块链就如同一支“催化剂”,可以为传统企业“赋能”从而走上数字化轨道。我并不认为因为区块链技术的出现,会使得更多人失去他们原有的工作。

事实上,许多区块链项目旨在实现商业化,或证明概念本身。当我们在逐步实现商业化时,仍需要做大量的准备工作。比如,传统的大型企业可能会对此产生抵触情绪,因为他们已经拥有了一套成熟的数据管理系统,让他们有所转变,代价是巨大的。而相对于一般型的企业,对于新技术反而相对更容易接受,他们认为区块链是有助于自己企业的长远发展。

区块链是一场技术革命,它的出现不仅会改变传统的技术与应用场景,还可能改变企业的管理方式。更低的成本、更好的品牌、更广阔的市场——这就是区块链技术给企业所带来的最大红利。

 

将区块链技术与传统的供应链和物流业务相结合,有哪些优势?

去中心化,或者是分布式的组织形式是区块链最大的特点,这是传统的组织形式所不具备的。比如,一个名牌洗发水,由于一些批次的产品未能质检达标,而被无良中间商回收利用,被运送出口在海外销售,如果没有引入区块链技术,那么消费者就无法查询自己所购买洗发水的质量是否合格。产品在所有流通环节中信息的透不透明,便是区块链之于传统技术最大的差异。

企业是否需要不断更新自己的系统,才能与区块链技术相结合?

不需要,区块链技术就像一层网络,只用依附于原有系统便可。它的作用仅仅是为企业收集、反馈数据信息,从而达到信息在各个区块上的相互认证与追踪。

 

基于区块链的供应链生态包括支付系统吗?

是可能的。Linfinity已经在与银行和其他志同道合的友商进行接洽,比如,融资贷款问题。金融借贷市场必须要考虑安全性与溯源性,区块链的本质属性恰恰可以帮助金融行业解决这方面的问题,以便于借贷融资业务能安全、高效的开展。

Linfinity:区块链技术将赋能供应链

 

2018年7月10日,由亚洲生产力组织(Asia Productivity Organization )主办的“可持续生产力”峰会,在日本东京举行。

此次峰会以“塑造不可能之事物”为话题展开讨论。会上,Tiny Farm的创始人兼CEO Andrew W Brentano发表了关于“新型食品创新和生产效率”的主题演讲,他表示:新型食品(素肉或者昆虫类食品)在生产的过程中,必须进行技术加工;而考虑到食材本身的特性,消费者往往在购买后无法确定原材料的品质或安全问题。

在传统供应链的结构下,这种“信任危机”已成为业界常态,而目前区块链的出现,也为解决这一难题创造了可能性。

Linfinity CEO Anndy Lian在会上就此点与APO秘书长Dr.Santhi Kanoktanaporn展开了深度探讨。Anndy指出,区块链的出现会迎来下一次的产业革命。区块链去中心化结构与可溯源的方式,为构建可信任的供应链生态提供了技术支持。一个产品从生产到终端全程上链,各个环节相互认证,确保了产品本身的正品性、信息的透明性、来源的溯源性与信息不可被篡改的安全性。

Dr.Santhi Kanoktanaporn对此表示认同,并指出区块链与传统供应链相结合,将极大改善行业整体的安全性与信任问题,并依托于新技术的支持,为更多的人带来优质服务。
