(LINFINITY Roundtable in Korea)
“The research, development and commercialisation of technology has become an important issue of industrial development. In this environment, as traditional enterprises start to lay out their visions for the blockchain industry, it has become a powerful driving force in the vigorous development of the entire blockchain industry.” At the LINFINITY Roundtable held in Seoul, South Korea, LINFINITY, together with political and business representatives, such as Dr. Santhi Kanoktanaporn, the Secretary General of the Asian Productivity Organization (APO); Dr. Myung Oh, the former Vice Prime Minister of Korea and Prof JoongHo Ahn, Professor Emeritus of the Seoul National University, reached a consensus regarding the integration of blockchain with traditional industries.

The Roundtable was hosted by LINFINITY CEO Anndy Lian. He pointed out that computational giants such as IBM, Microsoft and Oracle, have now begun to lay out their own individual roadmaps and visions for the blockchain industry. For example, Oracle recently announced that its self-developed cloud blockchain platform had accumulated a great deal of enterprise users. Pilot applications of blockchain technology have also been launched in a great number of industries, such as logistics traceability, academic certificate anti-counterfeiting, and taxation. The joining of these large multinational companies will significantly elevate the value of blockchain technology in the commercial field. Mr. Lian also noted: “LINFINITY is currently breaking the myth of blockchain being too complicated to effectively utilise, conveying the traceability of blockchain to our traditional industry customers in a simpler, more application-orientated way.”

“Asian Productivity Organization (APO), as a leading international organisation with members from the UN ESCAP, is exploring more cutting-edge technologies to address industry pain points and increase the productivity levels of member economies. Blockchain has great potential to bring changes to more traditional industries. APO currently has a dedicated team within the Industry Department to promote and incorporate blockchain technology into the new services and programs which aims to elevate transitional industries up the smart manufacturing chain and to enhance the overall productivity levels of Asian countries,” Dr. Santhi Kanoktanaporn, Secretary General of APO said.
The Asian Productivity Organization (APO) was established on 11 May 1961 as a regional intergovernmental organization, aiming to increase productivity within, and promote the sustainable development of the greater Asia-Pacific social economy. It is nonpolitical, nonprofit, and nondiscriminatory. Currently it has twenty member economies, comprising 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. These economies pledge to assist each other in their productivity drives in a spirit of mutual cooperation by sharing knowledge, information, and experience.
(Dr. Myung Oh, former Vice Prime Minister of Korea)
The South Korean government has always remained open towards various cutting-edge technologies, and makes sure to pay close attention to the positive role of blockchain in national productivity, asserts Dr. Myung Oh, the former Vice Prime Minister of South Korea. He also pointed out that the government should give full play to its guiding function, make conceited efforts to effectively supervise policy in the industry, and create a healthy business environment, so as to attract more traditional enterprises to join the blockchain industry.

“I think that, in supply chain terms, supply chain finance will be an important breakthrough for blockchain in traditional industries, which will bring unprecedented settlement convenience to the industry. Additionally, fund liquidity will become far more secure and flexible than we have currently,” stated Jang Mi Jyung, President of JMK Global Corp, Global Samsung Corp.
(Pär Helgosson, CEO of Djenee)
“Although the advantages of blockchain technology can solve the pain points associated with informational exchange in traditional industries, only the commercialisation of blockchain technology can bring out its own value. This requires not only the financial support of traditional enterprises, but also the integration of actual application scenarios to solve specific problems. We are constantly trying to do this, hoping to bring more users a better experience,” Pär Helgosson, CEO of Swedish company Djenee said.
The Roundtable was also attended by political and business representatives, including Joshua Lau, the Director of the Asian Productivity Organization in Japan; Hong Serk-Joo, the former President of Cho Hung Bank of Korea; Jex Yoon, the Chairman of Unis Group; and Ahn Gyeong-Hee, the President of the Oktokki Space Center. The Roundtable also had an in-depth discussion on the trend of blockchain and the development of blockchain’s token economy.

“对于技术的研发与商业化的落地已经成为行业发展的重要议题。在这样的大环境下，之于传统企业进入区块链行业并进行布局，已然成为推动整个区块链行业大力发展的强大动力。“日前，在韩国首尔举行的LINFINITY圆桌会议，LINFINITY与包括联合国下属亚洲生产力组织秘书长Dr. Santhi Kanoktanaporn，韩国前副总理Dr. Oh Myung，首尔大学教授Ahn Joong Ho，朝兴银行前行长Hong Serk Joo等政商界代表就区块链与传统行业的融合达成共识。

圆桌会议由LINFINITY CEO Anndy Lian主持，他表示，现如今像IBM、微软、甲骨文等巨头企业已经开始布局区块链产业。比如，甲骨文最近宣布自主研发的云区块链平台积累了诸多企业用户，并在物流溯源、学历证书防伪、税务等行业开启试点应用。这些大型跨国企业的加入，将大力挖掘区块链技术在商用领域的价值。“LINFINITY目前正在打破区块链复杂化的迷思，将区块链的溯源科技用一种更加简单，更具应用价值的方式传达给我们的传统行业客户。”

区块链技术的优势虽然可以解决传统行业在信息交流方面痛点，但唯有将技术商业化，才能发挥出其本身的价值，这不仅仅需要传统企业在资金方面的支持，更需要结合实际的应用场景去解决具体的问题。我们正在不断尝试去做这件事情，希望能为更多的用户带去更加优异的体验，来自瑞典的Djenee CEO Pär Helgosson表示。

“Blockchain is not a one-size-fits-all solution. We must find a customized solution that truly matches commercial needs.”
—Anndy Lian, CEO of LINFINITY
On January 9th-11th 2019, a three-day global blockchain seminar, jointly supported by Ministry of Education — Singapore Retailers Studies, Nanyang Polytechnic, SkillsFuture and organized by Walletton Holdings; was held in Seoul, South Korea, bringing together industry leaders from the political, business and academic communities. Attendees including former Seoul Mayor Kim Hyeong-joo; Jun-Sik Sim of the Deloitte Crypto Research Center; Gachon University professor Dr. Dohyun Park; LINFINITY CEO Anndy Lian and Upbit CEO Sir-goo Lee were invited to deliver key speeches.
In his speech, Mr. Lian remarked: “Blockchain technology can solve many problems, but it does not mean that it can solve all problems. Blockchain is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Blockchain projects must find customized solutions that will truly match their needs.” LINFINITY’s commercialization process is steadily carried out based on this foundation.”
In LINFINITY’s business ideology, there is no such thing as a ‘package’ blockchain solution, LINFINITY adopts a customized model when building enterprise usage scenarios. LINFINITY’s most recent example of this process at work is the completion of information on-chaining services for Singapore’s healthcare brand Scientific Tradition and Japanese haircare brand Herbriller. “The focus and needs of these two brands are very different. This is not just coding the product information to a ‘block’.” Anndy added. Finding the specific application scenario that meets the requirements of the enterprises blockchain aims to integrate with is the most important thing to its commercialization process, both now and in the future.
Blockchain development in Singapore and South Korea have already taken the world by storm. South Korea is the pioneer in both cryptocurrency usage, trading and implementation. Many projects will go Korea to learn about Blockchain. The success for Korea in blockchain gained traction fast thanks to the support of the government. LINFINITY also accelerated its development in South Korea with the recent announcement of local business cooperation and its listing on Coinfinit.
“We are happy to see that more governmental and commercial forces are engaged in this industry. 2019 is likely to be an important year where blockchain ‘commercialization’ begins to gain traction in all these areas, rather than discussing the price of individual tokens. As the scale of blockchain commercialization increases, exploration deepens, it will gradually gain recognition and show its true power of being the next technology innovation. That is what LINFINITY team is doing; to bring the true value of blockchain technology to the general public.”
