[뉴스웍스=박준영 기자] 디지털 자산 거래소 후오비코리아는 지난 16일 서울 용산구 서울드래곤시티 한라홀에서 개최한 ‘블록체인 미래 포럼’에서 블록체인 산업 발전을 위한 방향성에 관해 이야기했다고 18일 전했다.

이 행사는 블록체인 및 암호화폐 시장 현황에 대해 예측하고 분석하는 자리로 마련됐다. 암호화폐 VC인 ‘노드캐피탈’과 블록체인 기술 서비스 기업 ‘체인업’을 비롯해 다양한 블록체인 오피니언 리더 및 관계자 약 400여 명이 참석했다.

후오비코리아 운영본부 엘레나 강 실장은 ‘한-중 패널 디스커션’ 세션에서 Du Jun 노드캐피탈 공동설립자, Zhong Gengfa 체인업 대표, Anndy Lian 린피니티 대표, Peter Kim 이오스닥 대표, Zhang YU 콜드라 COO와 함께 토론을 벌였다. 토론은 암호화폐 거래소의 마케팅, 합법화, STO(증권형 토큰 공개)에 대해 이뤄졌다.

강 실장은 “암호화폐 거래소가 활로를 개척하기 위해서는 상생을 통한 ‘신뢰 형성’이 필요하기에 최근 후오비를 비롯한 바이낸스와 같이 수익이 발생하면 다시 블록체인 산업으로 재투자해 산업 발전을 모색하는 거래소가 많아졌다”고 말했다.

또한 “후오비 코리아의 경우 원화 마켓 추진과 수수료 무료라는 정책을 동시에 추진해 위축된 시장에서 투자자, 프로젝트, 거래소 모두 상생할 방법의 마케팅을 진행 중”이라고 전했다.

이어 “현재 정부에서는 암호화폐 거래소 규제에 대해 명확한 입장이 없는 상황”이라며 “보안성을 강화해 투자자 보호를 위한 최소한의 가이드라인이 제시돼야 한다”고 주장했다. 더불어 자금세탁방지와 고객파악제도의 의무를 이행해야 한다고 강조했다.

강 실장은 STO에 대해서는 “무분별한 ICO를 진행하는 기업 등으로 인해 투자 규모가 지난해 대비 5분의 1 수준으로 축소됐다”며 “ICO에 대한 신뢰 하락과 법적 규제의 부재가 만들어 낸 현상”이라고 설명했다.

한편, 후오비코리아는 원화 마켓 오픈을 예고하고, 위축된 ‘투자 심리’를 살리기 위해 수수료 무료 이벤트를 진행한다. 오는 31일까지 레벨 2 인증 가입자가 받을 수 있는 이번 혜택은 인증 완료 시기에 따라 2~6개월 수수료 무료 기간도 차등 제공한다.

区块链商业化的探索之路

(2018区块链前沿高峰论坛)

“2018区块链前沿高峰论坛”于12月16日在韩国首尔举行,会议主题围绕“区块链的现状与未来发展趋势”开展。LINFINITY CEO Anndy Lian出席了此次峰会,并作为嘉宾与包括节点资本合伙人兼金色财经创始人杜均、ChainUP财经创始人兼CEO钟庚发在内的顶级行业领袖精英就“区块链技术的商业化与改革”话题展开深度讨论。

现阶段,区块链早已成为前沿领域的一个热门话题,随之而来的是各行业对其褒贬不一态势。形成这种情况最大的原因在于,迄今为止区块链的实际应用仅仅突显在数字货币方面,而在其他方面的作用,似乎总是呈现出“雷声大雨点小”的窘境。基于此方面的问题,Anndy在峰会中分享了自己的观点.

(Annd Lian与区块链行业领袖精英开展讨论)

“区块链技术落地之难,并非难在应用层面,而是依靠现阶段的区块链技术还无法承受互联网级别的区块访问量。”Anndy说道:“我在行业中已经看见了很多做的很不错的应用落地项目,但是它们还只是存在于小范围的试点阶段,区块访问速率的提升是整个区块链行业所面临的共同难点,源于这一痛点,势必会对商业化推广后的用户体验造成极大影响,这是全行业的共同问题,需要全行业的共同努力,虽然需要时间,但我想不会太久。”

在谈及LINFINITY如何缓解这一问题时他说道:“全行业的痛点,也是LINFINITY努力的方向。但LINFINTIY在持续以市场为导向的商业化过程中发现,各行业的区块链化并不是区块链的全盘化,对于‘万物皆可区块链化’的言论,LINFINITY始终持谨慎的怀疑。区块链化只是把各行业需要用到区块链技术的方面给予信息上链即可。”

(Annd Lian与会中分享自己的观点)

“区块链的商业化落地可以有助于解决现阶段企业所面临的诸多行业问题,但它同样是一把双刃剑。LINFINITY始终践行在以市场为中心的区块链商业化发展,同样也呼吁更多的友商与企业能够一起参与其中,那么区块链未来将会是无限朝阳。”Anndy Lian笑言道:“当然,区块链的商业化道路也同样需要政府密切关注与大力支持。”前不久,他刚被任命为韩国庆尚北道区块链特别委员会委员。

Understand How Blockchain Will Change the Way We Do Business

(Future Blockchain Forum 2018)

December 16th, Seoul, South Korea. “Future Blockchain Forum 2018” brought leading blockchain figures to discuss the current and future state of the industry. LINFINITY CEO Anndy Lian attended and joined the panel discussion with Du Jun, Node Capital partner and Jinse Finance founder and Zhong Gengfa, founder and CEO of ChainUP to conduct an in-depth discussion on the “Commercialisation and Reform of Blockchain Technology”.

Blockchain has long been a topic of both great interest and contention as a frontier field, with a number of industries vying for their opinions on its general and business applications to be heard. As it stands today, the practical applications of blockchain are strictly limited to digital currency exchange and trade – though there is huge scope for advancement, the spectre of blockchain’s reputation precedes any meaningful application it may have beyond the realms of Bitcoin and its alt-coin brothers – in short, blockchain is all talk and no show: great thunder, yet little rain. Based on this problem, Mr. Lian shared his opinion on this prevailing view of blockchain technology.

(Panel Discussion on “Commercialisation and Reform of Blockchain Technology”)

“The commercialisation of blockchain technology is naturally difficult, not only at the application level but in the sense that it is not able to withstand the Internet-level block visit volume shown within current blockchain technology.” Mr. Lian emphasised. “I have seen a great number of innovative projects crop up in the industry from time to time, but they’re all still stuck in their pilot phase. Put simply, the increase of block access rate is a common difficulty faced by the entire blockchain industry; and it is due to this that user experiences of blockchain-enabled systems will be greatly impacted upon after commercialisation. This pain point is a common problem across the whole industry: as such, it requires the joint efforts of the whole industry to solve. It will, of course, take some time, but I believe the solution is within grasp.”

In terms of LINFINITY’s approach to the issue, Mr. Lian continued: “LINFINITY aims to focus its efforts towards solving this particular pain point within the industry; however, in the process of continuing market-oriented commercialisation, LINFINTIY has found that ‘blockchainisation’ of various industries is not a necessarily holistic approach to blockchain. Given that LINFINITY has always been cautiously sceptical towards the argument that ‘everything can be blockchainised’, we have prepared for this particular issue accordingly. After all, blockchainisation is only the process of on-chaining information that needs to use blockchain technology. ‘Blockchain Reform’ here, however, provides a potential solution, and one that LINFINITY has adopted since its inception: by combining blockchain technology with traditional entities as a market strategy – first by building a complete business ecosystem from the enterprise end, and secondly by conducting staged blockchain commercialisation from the top to the bottom.”

(LINFINITY CEO Anndy Lian in the Panel Discussion)

“This approach to commercialisation of the blockchain industry may well help to mitigate the issues faced today. The infancy of blockchain is both its strength and its bane at this point – if a company can approach the problem in as pragmatic a way as LINFINITY seems to be doing at this point, then there is great hope for what the future may hold for blockchain. And of course, the commercialisation or blockchain technology need joint efforts from both commercial parties as well as local governments.” Anndy added, who was appointed as member of Gyeongsangbuk-do Blockchain Special Committee.
