On November 14, 2018, LINFINITY CEO Anndy Lian attended the “Inauguration Ceremony of the Gyeongsangbuk-do Blockchain Special Committee” organised by the Government of Gyeongsangbuk-do, in South Korea. The committee is comprised of 40 people, including top project sponsors, founders and leaders of blockchain industries, such as Brock Pierce, Chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation; Jeffrey Jones, President of the American Chamber of Commerce in Korea; Alexis Sirkia, founder of GSR; Jonathan Kochmer, former Information Architect of Amazon and Director of Business Development of RChain Cooperative; Eyal Oster, CEO of Momentums and Annastasiah Mhaka, Co-Founder of AAIH (the Alliance for Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare.
Mr. Lian has become the newest member of these ranks, and was presented as the new ambassador of the Blockchain Special Committee. Gyeongsangbuk-do Governor, Lee Cheol-Woo, personally presented him with a Letter of Appointment.
The Gyeongsangbuk-do Blockchain Special Committee is aimed at cultivating the blockchain industry, building a blockchain research centre, attracting investment in blockchain-related projects, and promoting the development of the blockchain industry in the city of Gyeongsangbuk-do. “To nurture the blockchain industry, we will work with a special committee of national and international experts to develop strategies in a pre-emptive manner,” Mr. Lee Cheol-Woo, Gyeongsangbuk-do Governor, said at the inauguration ceremony. “The establishment of the committee is not the first time Gyeongsangbuk-do has entered the field of blockchain. This summer , the Gyeongsangbuk-do Provincial Government announced plans to issue its own local cryptocurrency – ‘Gyeongbuk Coin’, which will effectively benefit businesses.”
After the ceremony, Anndy Lian delivered a keynote speech on “The Blockchain Industry Development of Gyeongsangbuk-do”. “I am very pleased to be a member of the Gyeongsangbuk-do Blockchain Committee. This is not only a personal honour, but also a recognition of LINFINTIY and its commercial development process. It is also a great honour to gather with leaders and elites in the blockchain industry to participate in the development of Gyeongbuk’s blockchain industry. LINFINITY will provide complete technical support.” He added, “As we all know, Gyeongsangbuk-do is rich in high-quality, specialist products – seafood, agricultural products and so on. LINFINITY will also use its own blockchain-based anti-counterfeiting and traceability technology to bring them to markets further afield.”
Since blockchain became a recognised industry, South Korea has always been at the forefront of business, supporting and promoting the industry itself as well as its technological development. The various blockchain test zones led by the South Korean government are in an intensive deployment phase; according to a recent report by Cointelegraph, the South Korean government plans to increase the budget for developing blockchain technology to USD$35million in 2019, three times the allocated budget for 2018.

经过5个多月的研发与测试，今年10月，LINFINITY成功帮助新加坡灵芝保健品企业Scientific Tradition完成信息上链，并正式交付企业版Dapp进行最后企业内部调试。11月，LINFINITY与日本护发品牌Herbriller正式签署战略合作协议，将为其旗下护发产品启动区块链防伪项目。通过信息上链服务，不仅使得Herbriller供应链数据变得更加安全、可信，消费者也能通过LINFINITY Dapp查询Herbriller产品的详情。更重要的是，通过区块链的信息传递方式，Herbriller还能对其产品之于供应链各个节点与终端的流转情况有一个清楚的认识与把控，让其更加了解自身消费者的群体属性。
“Blockchain technology can help SMEs keep up with the times, inject new vitality into supply chain management, and help enterprises consolidate their position in highly competitive markets.”
—Anndy Lian, Singapore Lianhe Zaobao, November 14th 2018
Today’s edition of Singapore’s forefront Chinese-language newspaper, the Lianhe Zaobao, included a series of special reports on the development of LINFINITY and its commercialisation process. Each report focused specifically on “Cracking down on Fake Goods”, “LINFINITY Enterprise Cooperation”, “DApp Commercialisation”, “LINFINITY Promoting Blockchain Development” and “International Development”.
LINFINITY has maintained focus upon the commercial development of blockchain technology since its establishment, including the promotion of blockchain technology and the construction of a homebrewed LINFINITY-led business ecosystem. Through a continuous stream of attendances at global roadshows, LINFINITY conducts in-depth discussions with political, business and academic figures of various countries over the nature of blockchain and its potential uses in both the academic and economic fields. Taking real market demand as a leading factor, LINFINITY strives to achieve strategic cooperation with international enterprises, so as to empower supply chain management with blockchain technology.
After over five months of research, development, and testing, in October 2018, LINFINITY successfully incorporated information chaining into the structure of Singapore’s Lingzhi healthcare company Scientific Tradition, and officially released the enterprise version of LINFINITY DApp for final internal debugging.
In November, LINFINITY and the Japanese haircare brand Herbriller formally signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to launch a blockchain anti-counterfeiting project within their supply chain. Again, through LINFINITY’s information chaining service, Herbriller’s supply chain data has become significantly more secure and reliable, whilst also benefiting consumers by letting them request the details of various Herbriller products through LINFINITY DApp. More importantly, through the blockchain information transfer method, Herbriller can also have a clear understanding and control over the flow of its products to the various nodes and terminals in the supply chain, so that they can better understand the group attributes of its own consumers, and be in a better position to combat areas within that chain where product counterfeiting might occur.
CEO of LINFINITY, Anndy Lian, is ever-present within the Lianhe Ziaobao reports. “Blockchain allows for SMEs to envision new applications for their products and services. The greatest value of information chaining is to make information available, transparent and safe in every link of the supply chain, which is beyond the reach of traditional supply chains. Compared to larger enterprises, SMEs are more flexible, and therefore more willing, to embrace the latest cutting-edge technology. It is based on this point that LINFINITY promotes the development of the blockchain industry with SMEs in particular, while at the same time promoting its own commercialisation process, in the hope of bringing quality services to cooperative enterprises.”
