政府间区块链顾问Anndy Lian在2019世界区块链峰会上倡导建立区块链全球智囊团

政府间区块链顾问Anndy Lian于2019年9月20日在首尔举行的世界区块链峰会上接受了HashNet和Blockcast.cc的采访,并发出倡议。他倡导建立一个全球区块链智囊团,认为这将有助于业界更好的沟通交流,并向大众输出更高质量的意见。

 

Anndy在区块链行业深耕多年,在此之前的十多年,他一直是韩国科技界和商业界的常客。去年他甚至还与韩国延世大学的知名教授Youngsook Park一起编写了韩文科普书《区块链革命2030》,该书由韩国第一大出版社Kyobo Books出版,并迅速登上了畅销榜。

Anndy在全球其他国家也非常活跃,并且在社区中具有很强的影响力。在首尔召开的2019年第七届世界区块链峰会MARVELS期间,他告诉记者,”我们应该畅所欲言,区块链的未来掌握在我们手中”。会上Anndy与来自全球的行业领导者们进行了多次对话,大家一致认为为技术的发展设定正确的道路对于当前行业来说非常重要。

“此次会上和采访中我被问了很多问题,这说明目前大家对行业的未来发展和趋势并不是十分确定。我想强调的是,行业需要一个标准,只有我们一起努力,区块链技术才能更好的被接受并落地。到现在为止,每个人都在尝试做他们认为对行业有益的事情,现在是行业建立标准和联盟的时候了。我认为,一个专业的多样性的全球区块链思想领袖智囊团可以为行业设定标准和步伐。拥有共同的声音将有助于设定统一的法规和方向,从而加快技术的落地应用。” Anndy向记者解释道。

当被问及区块链在短期的发展时,Anndy回答道:“我会说这是非常乐观的。我们将在不久的将来看到传统投资者们进入市场并参与到受政策监管的证券代币交易或者STO中去。如果时间线再放长一点的话,我们会看到完全去中心化的经济与传统市场并行运行。”

Anndy是一位全面的商业策略师,在亚洲拥有超过15年的经验,为众多新加坡本土公司和国际上市公司提供咨询服务。

他目前担任亚洲生产力组织(APO)的区块链顾问,该组织致力于采用高新科技提高亚太地区成员国的生产力。他为APO秘书处提供有关智能工厂网络安全和物联网网络数据完整性方面的区块链应用建议,并通过线上线下的技术科普提高了APO成员国家对区块链技术的认知和实用能力。

同时, Anndy也是韩国庆尚北道区块链特别委员会的成员,他与政府部门,学术机构和其他行业专家,例如Brock Pierce(比特币基金会主席)和Alexis Sirkia(Yellow.com的创始人)一起,帮助该省发展使用区块链技术提高产业活力和促进就业。

Anndy希望能通过他的声音,使更多政府和企业了解区块链,学习区块链,并共同制定战略以促进该技术的落地应用。

韩国CEO Summit的首席执行官Park Bong-kyu也表示赞同,认为行业领袖应当团结一致。 “我认同Anndy的观点,我们需要一个全球的区块链智库来推动行业的创新和发展。我司举办的世界区块链大会其主要目的之一就是团结来自世界各地的行业领导者,为大家提供一个好的交流互动的平台。我们得到韩国政府和行业协会及头部企业支持,我们也得到了来自世界各地的合作伙伴们的支持。 2020年我们将会主办世界CEO峰会,大会将在釜山开幕,希望有更多的区块链的从业者加入我们,让我们团结起来,区块链产业才会变得越来越强大。”

HashNet的首席执行官Chang Nyoung Suh和Blockcast.cc的联合创始人Jenny Zheng分别主导了此次大会的场内和线上的专访。采访视频由HashNet视频团队制作完成,文字采访由Blockcast.cc记者整理完成。

Blockcast.cc将继续在全球范围内采集区块链技术新闻。

MarketWatch: Learning Through Reflection: “The Future of Blockchain is in Our Hands” – Anndy Lian

“For the sake of discussion, I don’t think blockchain can do so much, it will change part of what we are doing right now, but it surely cannot change the world. Bridging the gap between rich and poor is not a job for blockchain. Stopping corruption, fraud, money laundering are also not tasks for this technology. Blockchain can only help to reduce and assist.” Anndy Lian gave a different opinion. “I also see that in the near future, 3-5 years, we will see security tokens go mainstream, and hopefully, the regulations can help to speed up the process for everything else.”

Anndy also gave his comments to the reporter off the stage saying that the future of blockchain is in our hands: “Blockchain is seen like a speculation tool and a big hype to many people and businesses like I have mentioned on the stage. If we want to see a better future for blockchain, we need to do a reality check by not adding on more fluff to the existing hype. We all have our own personal agenda. I can always sing the same song and say things that the general public likes to listen to and make blockchain a savior for humanity, but this is not right. At the right time, we need to properly educate the market and set a good example for our future.”

畅销书<区块链革命2030>作家Anndy Lian在2019 WBS Marvels大会上发表关于未来区块链新展望

畅销书<区块链革命2030>作家Anndy Lian于2019年11月20日在首尔新罗酒店举行的世界区块链峰会MARVELS主持了名为“ 2030年区块链革命”的小组讨论。Anndy与专家小组一起讨论了区块链的未来以及未来的趋势,相信区块链的未来掌握在我们手中,并提醒所有人进行反思。

小组成员包括Jonathan Kochmer(前亚马逊和RChain亚洲联合创始人),Jay Liang(香港区块链协会主席),Nicolas Nicolas Jacquet(HDAC营销总监),Anndy Lian(APO政府间区块链顾问), Vazgen Yeghiazar(EDC区块链首席执行官)和Saul Tarazona(Fight to Fame的主席)。

Anndy Lian group

Anndy通过询问他们区块链在未来3-5年内将如何发展的问题启动了讨论。

区块链将彻底融入我们的生活中,而我们却对它一无所知。比如一些应用程序和dapps将以某种方式采用区块链,而消费者对此并不了解。” Saul评论道。 Nicholas同意了这一观点,并补充说,区块链将成为一种标准协议,它将被广泛用作大型系统的一部分:“它将改变我们的生活,而我们却一无所知。”

Vazgen提到,在不久的将来,我们甚至可以将我们自己作为投资标的,我们将代币化个人价值,并使用代币获得直接投资。 “区块链的未来是不可预测的,我期待未来无限的可能性!”

“在过去的150年中,大部分资金都集中在富人身上,但是在不久的将来,区块链技术将分享资金并扩大普通人加入市场的机会。”Jay分享了他的观点。

就现阶段而言,我认为区块链不能做太多事情,它将改变我们目前正在做的事情的一部分,但它肯定不能改变世界。缩小贫富差距并不是区块链的工作。阻止腐败,欺诈,洗钱也不是这项技术的任务区块链只能帮助减少和协助改善这些现象。” Anndy Lian提出了不同的看法。 “我还看到,在不远的未来3-5年,我们将看到Security代币成为主流,希望法规和制度的出现可以帮助加快这个过程。”

Anndy在台下还向记者发表了评论,称区块链的未来就在我们手中:“这两年区块链更多被当作是一种投机工具,许多人和企业都大肆宣传,不管他们的行业是不是真的需要区块链。如果我们希望看到区块链的美好未来,我们需要通过务实发展的方式,而不是像现在这样一味通过炒作实现。我们都有自己的观点和角度,不想过度为区块链唱赞歌,说出公众喜欢听的话,区块链描述成解决一切问题的救星,这并不现实。在适当的时候,我们需要教育市场并为行业的未来树立正确的榜样。”

小组成员一致认为,像是金融,游戏,供应链,医疗等行业将受益于该技术。工业4.0,自动化,人工智能,深度学习,物联网将与区块链更加紧密地结合在一起工作区块链有可能会融入我们一个的未来。同时,区块链将有助于弥合现有的安全问题,并引入新的信任体系,从而带来更广范围的交易和协作。

2019年世界区块链峰会是该大会的第七次召开,会议得到了韩国科学和信息通信技术部,首尔,釜山,韩国区块链产业促进协会,釜山经济促进研究所,忠清北道知识产业促进机构,韩国区块链初创协会,韩国区块链产业促进协会,韩国区块链协会以及韩国电子竞技产业的大力支持。

世界区块链峰会的创始人兼首席执行官Park Bong-kyu在会上郑重感谢韩国社区以及他来自世界各地的合作伙伴的支持。在峰会上,他还与韩国政治家就未来政策进行了讨论,并组织安排了优秀国际参展商在会场展区展示他们的区块链项目会后Park Bong-kyu主席与总部位于欧洲的Gaimin.io项目建立了合作伙伴关系,以共同开发电子竞技游戏市场。

韩国过去,现在以及将来都会是区块链创新的主要国家之一,Blockcast.cc将持续关注韩国市场并带来更多精彩活动和新闻。

Aaron Tan, Wadz VP and Anndy Lian, Book Author “Blockchain Revolution 2030” had a fireside on the impact of Blockchain technology in the supply chain sector. Anndy Lian comes from a background as an all-rounded business strategist with over 15 years experience in Asia. He currently plays a pivotal role as the Blockchain Advisor for Asian Productivity Organisation (APO), an intergovernmental organisation committed to improving productivity in the Asia-Pacific region. During the fireside chat, Anndy provided valuable insights on the surrounding Blockchain industry and as well as his opinion on the ideal implementation of Blockchain technology into supply chain processes.

ABC 6: Anndy Lian Suggested A Global Think Tank for Blockchain Thought Leadership

Anndy Lian, an Inter-Governmental Blockchain Advisor suggested that a global blockchain think tank should be established and will help the industry to table collective views moving forward. He was interviewed by HashNet & Blockcast.cc at World Blockchain Summit Seoul on 20th September 2019.

Anndy has walked a long journey in the blockchain industry. He has been a frequent face in the South Korea technology and business scene for more than a decade. He even wrote a book titled “Blockchain Revolution 2030” in Korean published by Kyobo Books with Professor Youngsook Park from Yonsei University.

“I am being asked quite a few questions during this interview. I would like to highlight a couple of things. Blockchain will only get good outcomes if we all work together. At this current moment, everyone is trying to do what they deem is good for the industry. It is time for an alliance to be formed. In my opinion, a global think tank of blockchain thought leaders can set the standards and pace for the industry. Having one collective voice will help to set unified regulations and directions, thus driving the adoption of this technology faster. I will find like minded people and set this up if opportunity arises. We need to converge to grow bigger and stronger!” Anndy explained to the reporter.

When asked what is blockchain like in the near future, Anndy responded: “I would say that it is very optimistic. The immediate short term trend you will see is that accredited investors will come into the market and take part in regulated security token trading or STO. In the longer run, there might be a possibility to see a totally decentralized economy running parallel with the traditional market.”

He currently plays a pivotal role as the Blockchain Advisor for Asian Productivity Organisation (APO), an intergovernmental organisation 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 upskill the Secretariat staff in blockchain technologies as applicable to productivity. Being active in Korea, the governor of Gyeongsangbuk-do also made him part of the Blockchain Special Committee, together with industry experts such as Brock Pierce (Chairman, Bitcoin Foundation) and Alexis Sirkia (Founder of Yellow.com) helping the province to grow using blockchain technologies.

Park Bong-kyu, CEO of World CEO Summit MARVELS also voiced out that leaders must unite. “I am thinking like Anndy too. My event is one of the few blockchain events that unite leaders from all over the world. We get domestic support from government and leading brands. We also get support from comrades from all over the world. World CEO Summit 2020 will start at Busan next year. I hope to get more support from more leaders! The blockchain industry will only grow bigger and stronger when we unite.”

Chang Nyoung Suh, CEO of HashNet and Jenny Zheng, Cofounder of Blockcast.cc were present during this interview. Video snippets will be uploaded to YouTube by HashNet video team. While selected portions of the interview are captured in text by Blockcast.cc reporter on site.

Fox News: Catching Up with Anndy Lian, Inter-Governmental Blockchain Advisor at the Singapore Fintech and Blockchain Week 2019

The 2019 Singapore Fintech Festival (SFF) kicked off on Monday at the Singapore EXPO, marking the first day of the world’s biggest annual fintech gathering. The Blockchain Week follows back to back with SFF. We have met many good projects such as TransferWise, Razer Pay, FlovTec, Zigway and more. We have also managed to catch up with some of the leading blockchain practitioners at Singapore this week. We will collate some interviews and have them featured on our interview section.

Today, we have Mr Anndy Lian with us. He is a blockchain advisor to an inter-governmental organisation, a book author and a strong voice in the blockchain community.

Blockcast.cc: Hi Anndy, good to see you again. It has been a while since we meet. I rememeber the last time we met was in South Korea and ever since I am being sent to the USA office, I have not seen you. How are things?

Anndy Lian: Thanks for asking. Things are great. We have been working on multiple things for the government and also in the midst of going through a RMO application in Singapore for SingDax. Things for me are very hectic and I have been travelling for quite a bit and have not gotten the chance to catch up with your team.

Anndy Lian: Sure that will be good. I will try my best to be tactful and also give you some candid replies.

Blockcast.cc: What is your opinion on the development of the blockchain industry during the last year?

Anndy Lian: I would say that the development of blockchain is slower than what I have expected. As you know, I travel quite a bit and have been actively giving advise to governments agencies on blockchain matters. The people on the grounds are thinking very similar as I do. 2019 to me is supposed to be a less speculative time for cryptocurrencies. More adoption of blockchain should be seen but the numbers does not add up. Many projects came up with good ideas, but fall short of implementing properly. Some of them failed to get funds too. Others will get into new troubles with the changes in the regulations. Well in 2020, I hope to see more traditional companies coming in and also helping some of these good ideas go into execution.

Blockcast.cc: What is your vision on the development of the STO market in the upcoming years?

Anndy Lian: There is a lot to say for this topic. Speaking from my own perspectives. The STO market is very promising and will do well starting in 2020. In Singapore and also in ASEAN, I see regulators stepping up to issue related licences to facilitate the STO market. This is a good sign for the market.

If you look at the overall STO market, the leading country is still United States and if you look at the European side, Switzerland is the champion. The next prominent bloc will be South East Asia and to me Singapore is obviously the lead country pushing this across, getting traction from the neighboring countries. The actual number of STO skyrocketed almost 10 times if you compare the statistics for 2017 and 2019. Again, if you look at it deeper, the smaller STO projects appear to be more successful, the sweet spot is between $1m to around $5m.

With new global investors coming into the STO blockchain scene and this will create a new demand in time to come. As some of you know, my team is working on a new security digital asset exchange call SingDax. We have good support from the regulator and traditional companies too. Like I have mentioned above, the support from traditional companies are very vital in this process of merging the new economy with the old. The value creation is far more than what some can imagine.

I also do see a minus point on how STOs are structured and how blockchain technology can come into play in this security market. Many of the operators, funders and brains behind some of these projects are just too “old school”. There is nothing wrong with being safe, if I may say but being safe is not necessary good when we are innovating. Being safe would also mean that we may not have a real competitive advantage over the existing business models.

Blockast.cc: What do you think about the possibility for accredited investors to participate in opportunities such as SpaceX or other private companies and startups worldwide?

Anndy Lian: Personally I am a fan of Elon Musk and SpaceX of course, projects like this are wonderful and if they are opened for global accredited investors to participate using the blockchain, it will be good news for all of us and also for SpaceX. But then again, you cannot compare SpaceX with all other startups. The risks involved in investing to startups are very high in some aspects. If you look from STO point of view, equity based tokens have very high up side for investors, my take is that projects or companies who are issuing such tokens should be listed on a regulated token exchange for STOs. This can help to defray some risks and also give new investors more confidence.

Blockcast.cc: I also noted that you have not been sharing much recently. Are you slowing down your pace?

Anndy Lian: (Laughs) To be honest, I have been very busy. On my governmental work, I have just completed a training module of over 100 slides for Asian Productivity Organization on Smart Manufacturing and Blockchain where all the members from 22 countries can access to it online.

I am also busy with SingDax. The process is very interesting and promising frankly. If I have more resources, things can move a lot faster. I met regulators regionally, virtual banks, global real estate funds, developers and more. I can’t disclose anything more as I have a board to answer to.

Blockcast.cc: Do you still have time to speak at events? Again, I don’t see any new updates on events that you have spoken on.

Anndy Lian: I can’t stop what I am doing. I want to share as much information to people who want to understand blockchain. There were a couple of events that I have spoken at but did not have the time share.

I was the keynote speaker at Blockchain Summit 2019 in Singapore on 20 September 2019 organized by a India based knowledge partner where I spoke about “The Future Roadmap for Blockchain”.

Also on 17 October 2019 at RHT ASEAN Summit 2019 where I was part of a panel titled “Regional Supply Chain” where we discuss the trends, issues and opportunities for supply chain. During the summit, we also had the honour for SMS Edwin Tong to present us the appointment letter as the Advisory Panel Member for the China-ASEAN Business Alliance.

I am still very active in the market. I think. (Laughs again)

Blockcast.cc: Thanks for your insights again. I do understand where you are coming from especially on the securities side of things. As our usual practice, can we get a quote from you.

Anndy Lian: Ok. I would like to share something different with you today.

“GROW TOGETHER WITH THE BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY, NOT THE HYPE. DISRUPTION IS JUST BEGINNING.”

Blockcast.cc: Thanks Anndy.

Anndy Lian: Thanks Melody for the interview during this Singapore Fintech and Blockchain Week 2019.

Catching Up with Anndy Lian, Inter-Governmental Blockchain Advisor at the Singapore Fintech and Blockchain Week 2019

The 2019 Singapore Fintech Festival (SFF) kicked off on Monday at the Singapore EXPO, marking the first day of the world’s biggest annual fintech gathering. The Blockchain Week follows back to back with SFF. We have met many good projects such as TransferWise, Razer Pay, FlovTec, Zigway and more. We have also managed to catch up with some of the leading blockchain practitioners at Singapore this week. We will collate some interviews and have them featured on our interview section.

Today, we have Mr Anndy Lian with us. He is a blockchain advisor to an inter-governmental organisation, a book author and a strong voice in the blockchain community.

Blockcast.cc: Hi Anndy, good to see you again. It has been a while since we meet. I rememeber the last time we met was in South Korea and ever since I am being sent to the USA office, I have not seen you. How are things?

Anndy Lian: Thanks for asking. Things are great. We have been working on multiple things for the government and also in the midst of going through a RMO application in Singapore for SingDax. Things for me are very hectic and I have been travelling for quite a bit and have not gotten the chance to catch up with your team.

Blockcast.cc: It is always good to be busy. Since you are looking at the STO market and have the experience in the regulations matter. Let us go through some questions that I have in mind for you. 

Anndy Lian: Sure that will be good. I will try my best to be tactful and also give you some candid replies.

Blockcast.cc: What is your opinion on the development of the blockchain industry during the last year?

Anndy Lian: I would say that the development of blockchain is slower than what I have expected. As you know, I travel quite a bit and have been actively giving advise to governments agencies on blockchain matters. The people on the grounds are thinking very similar as I do. 2019 to me is supposed to be a less speculative time for cryptocurrencies. More adoption of blockchain should be seen but the numbers does not add up. Many projects came up with good ideas, but fall short of implementing properly. Some of them failed to get funds too. Others will get into new troubles with the changes in the regulations. Well in 2020, I hope to see more traditional companies coming in and also helping some of these good ideas go into execution.

Blockcast.cc: What is your vision on the development of the STO market in the upcoming years?

Anndy Lian: There is a lot to say for this topic. Speaking from my own perspectives. The STO market is very promising and will do well starting in 2020. In Singapore and also in ASEAN, I see regulators stepping up to issue related licences to facilitate the STO market. This is a good sign for the market.

If you look at the overall STO market, the leading country is still United States and if you look at the European side, Switzerland is the champion. The next prominent bloc will be South East Asia and to me Singapore is obviously the lead country pushing this across, getting traction from the neighboring countries. The actual number of STO skyrocketed almost 10 times if you compare the statistics for 2017 and 2019. Again, if you look at it deeper, the smaller STO projects appear to be more successful, the sweet spot is between $1m to around $5m.

With new global investors coming into the STO blockchain scene and this will create a new demand in time to come. As some of you know, my team is working on a new security digital asset exchange call SingDax. We have good support from the regulator and traditional companies too. Like I have mentioned above, the support from traditional companies are very vital in this process of merging the new economy with the old. The value creation is far more than what some can imagine.

I also do see a minus point on how STOs are structured and how blockchain technology can come into play in this security market. Many of the operators, funders and brains behind some of these projects are just too “old school”. There is nothing wrong with being safe, if I may say but being safe is not necessary good when we are innovating. Being safe would also mean that we may not have a real competitive advantage over the existing business models.

Blockast.cc: What do you think about the possibility for accredited investors to participate in opportunities such as SpaceX or other private companies and startups worldwide?

Anndy Lian: Personally I am a fan of Elon Musk and SpaceX of course, projects like this are wonderful and if they are opened for global accredited investors to participate using the blockchain, it will be good news for all of us and also for SpaceX. But then again, you cannot compare SpaceX with all other startups. The risks involved in investing to startups are very high in some aspects. If you look from STO point of view, equity based tokens have very high up side for investors, my take is that projects or companies who are issuing such tokens should be listed on a regulated token exchange for STOs. This can help to defray some risks and also give new investors more confidence.

Blockcast.cc: I also noted that you have not been sharing much recently. Are you slowing down your pace?

Anndy Lian: (Laughs) To be honest, I have been very busy. On my governmental work, I have just completed a training module of over 100 slides for Asian Productivity Organization on Smart Manufacturing and Blockchain where all the members from 22 countries can access to it online.

I am also busy with SingDax. The process is very interesting and promising frankly. If I have more resources, things can move a lot faster. I met regulators regionally, virtual banks, global real estate funds, developers and more. I can’t disclose anything more as I have a board to answer to.

Blockcast.cc: Do you still have time to speak at events? Again, I don’t see any new updates on events that you have spoken on.

Anndy Lian: I can’t stop what I am doing. I want to share as much information to people who want to understand blockchain. There were a couple of events that I have spoken at but did not have the time share.

I was the keynote speaker at Blockchain Summit 2019 in Singapore on 20 September 2019 organized by a India based knowledge partner where I spoke about “The Future Roadmap for Blockchain”.

Also on 17 October 2019 at RHT ASEAN Summit 2019 where I was part of a panel titled “Regional Supply Chain” where we discuss the trends, issues and opportunities for supply chain. During the summit, we also had the honour for SMS Edwin Tong to present us the appointment letter as the Advisory Panel Member for the China-ASEAN Business Alliance.

I am still very active in the market. I think. (Laughs- again)

 

Blockcast.cc: Thanks for your insights again. I do understand where you are coming from especially on the securities side of things. As our usual practice, can we get a quote from you.

Anndy Lian: Ok. I would like to share something different with you today.

“GROW TOGETHER WITH THE BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY, NOT THE HYPE. DISRUPTION IS JUST BEGINNING.”

Blockcast.cc: Thanks Anndy.

Anndy Lian: Thanks Melody for the interview during this Singapore Fintech and Blockchain Week 2019.
