Anndy Lian Interviews Pavel Matveev, CEO of Wirex: “Our industry does not respect tradition — it only respects innovation.”

Blockcast.cc: The payment tech industry is growing and one of the main player in my opinion is Wirex. My name is Jenny Zheng, Cofounder of Blockcast.cc. We are based in Singapore and have presence in South Korea, China and the USA. This afternoon, I have the chance to speak to the man himself, CEO of Wirex, Pavel Matveev. We have brought Anndy Lian into the house as well for this interview. He is an inter-governmental blockchain advisor, book author for “Blockchain Revolution 2030”, investor and recently took on the role as Asia CEO of DECENT Group, previously he founded the world first blockchain supply chain solutions for fast consumer goods. He will be the one posting the questions to Pavel and facilitate this discussion.

Jenny: Dear Pavel, good to meet you. Can you give an introduction of yourself?

Pavel: Hi Jenny, thank you for the interview. Hi Anndy, thanks for being here as well despite your busy schedule.

My name is Pavel Matveev. I am the co-founder and CEO of Wirex. As well as ensuring that the company is constantly pushing the boundaries of payment tech, I believe that my role includes facilitating and evangelising the mainstream adoption of distributed ledger technology across a number of industries.

Jenny: Our readers would like to know more about you, your past and current experiences or even your hobbies too. Can you share that as well?

Pavel: Sure. Before Wirex, I helped top-tier investment banks like Morgan Stanley, Barclays Capital and Credit Suisse build trading platforms and algo-trading strategies. During this time, I recognised that the cost and inconvenience of off-boarding digital currencies was an impediment to their use by both consumers and businesses, despite the latent potential in a tokenised economy. Dmitry Lazarichev and I founded Wirex to solve some of these problems and allow people to use their cryptocurrencies in everyday situations.

In my free time, I like to swim, ski and play video games. Not all at the same time!

Anndy: Impressive background. Tell us more about Wirex. We would like to know more on the progress and the future roadmap. For your information, Blockcast.cc did the PR work for OKEX during your IEO stages for the South Korea market. I was in South Korea during that period of time and we know so much about your company. How was the last 12 months for WireX?

Pavel: It’s an exciting time at Wirex and we’ve recently hit some major milestones. Over the last 12 months, we have partnered with Stellar — preparing 26 fiat-backed stable coins to revolutionise international remittance.

The Wirex Token (WXT) — our own native utility token, built on the Stellar network was also released. We then launched our next-gen, multi-currency Wirex Visa travel card in APAC.

We went on with our development work and have completely overhauled and re-designed the Wirex platform and card in early 2019, including the introduction of interbank and OTC rates for fiat and crypto exchanges respectively.

Lastly, we have received JVCEA Type II membership in Japan.

Anndy: You must have great plans ahead after obtaining the Type II membership, maybe Type I? What geographical expansion plans do you have right now?

Pavel: In terms of geographical expansion, we will begin operating in Japan, Canada and the U.S this year. We’re currently working towards acquiring our Type I Licence from Japan’s Financial Services Agency (FSA) — this will establish the platform as a legal Crypto Asset Exchange Service Provider (only 19 companies have achieved this to date) and allow us to offer our full range of services to Japanese customers.

We’re also continuing to develop our business product, including merchant offers that will allow companies to circumvent traditional payment channels run by Visa or Mastercard and Stablecoin-powered remittance.

Anndy: One reason why I stepped up to be part of a government advisor for blockchain is that I do see that there are a lot of scams in the market and it is not getting any better, depending on how you see it. Of course in my line of work, I do see many companies trying their best to navigate this unregulated space to get the best-commercialised value for their business. How do you see the blockchain and cryptocurrency market in general?

Pavel: Blockchains first use was for the movement of money, e.g. — cryptocurrency or digital currencies. I believe digital currencies are the biggest thing to happen to the financial sector since the Bretton Woods agreement. Not only do they allow for a system of money that sits outside the authority and oversight of central banks and governments but they also enable businesses and consumers to circumvent conventional financial infrastructure.

Legacy banking rails are slow and expensive; cryptocurrencies allow for near-instant transactions at a fraction of the cost, with none of the fees associated with Mastercard and Visa payment infrastructures. Even cryptos market volatility can be mitigated through the use of asset-pegged stable coins such as Dai.

I certainly wouldn’t agree that it is ‘not getting any better.’ The introduction of the 5th Money Laundering Directive (5MLD) means measures are being taken to prevent digital assets being utilised for ransomware purpose. Generally, procedures in line with the regulatory requirements of the traditional financial service sector are being implemented across the industry — an important step in a previously unregulated space.

Anndy: How do you see the term decentralisation in the blockchain space? Do you think it is feasible? Or is there a need to “re-decentralise” it, giving a new meaning.

Pavel: It is feasible. In 2019, we’ve seen a lot of existing and new DeFi (decentralised finance) projects get traction and create real value for real users. Notable examples include MakerDAO launching its multi-collateral DAI upgrade. We expect this trend to continue and are keen on supporting and cooperating with the best projects in the space.

Anndy: What is the future of blockchain? How do you visualise it? Where are the breakthroughs?

Pavel: The future of blockchain is bright, as highlighted above. I believe it has positively changed the world and there are more industries it will have an impact on.

Whether blockchain will become mainstream is a question of when, not if. Cryptocurrencies and stable coins are already revolutionising payments, lending and other areas of finance. Blockchain overall holds huge potential in other areas, too — decentralised data storage, smart contracts and so on.

The overall quality of projects in the space is consistently improving. Real-life use cases beyond investment and trading are increasing and creating real value — this trend will continue.

Jenny: We have reached the end of the interview Pavel. Can you share an inspiring quote for our readers?

Pavel: A quote I admire from another giant in the tech space is:

“Our industry does not respect tradition — it only respects innovation.”

– Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft.

Jenny: Yes innovation is the key to the technology industry. Thank for your time Pavel and thanks Anndy for being here with us today.

Crypto Markets News: Is Kyber’s Volume the Reason It Climbed 33% in 24 Hours?

Thanks for the mention- Crypto Markets News.


Why Did Kyber Rally When Most Other Cryptocurrencies are in the Red?

Most cryptocurrencies are in the red today and are reporting minor losses. The majority have lost minor amounts which is on average less than 1%. This includes Bitcoin (BTC) which lost 0.46%, Ethereum (ETH) which took a larger hit at 0.94% and XRP which slid by 0.38%.

There were a few that managed to make some gains, such as Bitcoin Cash (BCH) which gained 1.10%. Others include Bitcoin SV (BSV) which grew by 6%, but today’s biggest surprise was Kyber (KNC). The Kyber Network rallied by 32% in the past 24 hours and is currently trading at $0.780758. This is the highest price Kyber has seen since mid-2018.

Kyber is part of Ethereum’s DeFi ecosystem and is a DEX of sorts that allows easy token ERC-20 swaps.

Kyber’s Volume Causing Rally?

Earlier today Kyber released a few tweets that might have strengthened the rally we’ve seen today. The timing of the first tweet is marked approximately by the red X and referred to Kyber’s volume as a DEX. It was originally tweeted by blockchain advisor Anndy Lian and was immediately retweeted by the Kyber Network.

Anndy Lian@anndylian

Amazed by the volume #DEX are doing in the last 29 days:@KyberNetwork at $138m@uniswapexchange at $132m@oasisdex close to $100m https://twitter.com/DexWars/status/1233729927603724293 …

DEX 24 Hour Volume Bot@DexWars

#Ethereum #DEX Volumes February 2020

1) @KyberNetwork – $138,191,045
2) @UniswapExchange – $132,370,243
3) @OasisDex – $99,743,278
4) @tokenlon (0x) – $32,741,114
5) @idexio – $22,311,156
6) @Bancor – $7,661,174
7) @airswap – $7,537,603

*will cover 0x API & RR March onwards

A few hours later Kyber tweeted regarding their pretty large volume. They tweeted that Kyber has facilitated $138 million in value in on-chain trades in February. This is Kyber’s all-time-high of activity and could be one of the reasons for its rally. Another possible reason is anticipation for Kyber’s Katalist upgrade which is due to release in 2020 and which contains many improvements to the network.

Kyber’s rise seems to be a sign that while Bitcoin seems a bit stuck in its tracks for now, Altseason seems to still be going strong.

WFMJ: “Build the business step by step, and not think you are bitcoin” – Anndy Lian, Inter-governmental Blockchain Advisor shared at the World Blockchain Summit Busan 2020

Anndy Lian spoke at a panel titled “The Future cannot be regulated” at the World Blockchain Summit Busan 2020. The event has brought international technology experts to Busan, South Korea, to discuss the future of blockchain.

“Innovation is the guarantor of future prosperity and not regulation. In order for us to have a brighter future, we need to be innovative now to set a good foundation, and regulations can set in later to standardize. This is how typically sandbox models work, we trial and error, and if the results are good and acceptable, they graduate from the sandbox regime. Singapore’s MAS did a good job for blockchain-driven project, and I believe Busan as the regulatory free zone can take reference from what was done and make it better,” Anndy Lian commented.

Andrew Faridani, member of the Forbes Business Development Council agreed with the points and added: “The companies best positioned to be able to help the authorities make responsible regulations are those companies in industries that have the power to generate the most customers. The leading industry may be the gaming industry, because of its potential to recruit end-users at a rapid rate is probably the biggest out of any of the industries involved right now in blockchain. Responsible leading companies such as Gaimin, have the ability to be the forerunners of this movement.”

Former South Korea Minister of Environment Lee Maanee and keynote speaker at the event also explained further, “Busan has designated the blockchain special zone and laid the foundation for the public and private sectors to become the leading model of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.”

“There are many discussions today from DeFI to Ethereum Killer. Like I have mentioned on the stage, we are all supporters of blockchain technology. Highly likely, if you have invested in Bitcoin, you could have made some money but if you are a hardcore blockchain company, you could have lost money. I did not have time to elaborate on the stage on this. Blockchain companies must be realistic and build the business step by step, commercialise their products properly, and not think that they are “bitcoin”. Think in this manner, and the future will be a better one.” Anndy Lian, who is also an Inter-governmental advisor at Asian Productivity Organisation added.

The World Blockchain Summit Busan 2020 was held in Busan, South Korea on 20th February 2020, jointly organised by Blockchain MARVELS and Busan Economic Promotion Agency, and hosted by the Korea CEO Summit, Busan, BNK Financial Group, Korea Blockchain Industry Promotion Association, Korea Blockchain Startup Association, Korea Blockchain Association, Global Fintech Industry Promotion Center, Chungbuk Blockchain and Korea e-Sports Industry Association.

Blockchain experts from Maker DAO, Conflux, Gaimin.io, Quarkchain were present at the event to lend their support and find out more about the Busan Economic Zone. Park Ki-sik, chairman of Busan Economic Promotion Agency, Chairman Kim Hyung-jin of Sejong Telecom, Former Constitutional Judge Ahn Chang, and Han In-suk, Honorary President of the University of Utah Asia and many others were present at the event to lend their support.

Park Bong-gyu, Chairman of the Korea CIO Summit and World Blockchain Summit has been a key driver of this CEO community in South Korea for the past 16 years. Members include Samsung Group, LG Group, SK Group, Lotte Group, CJ Group, Panasonic Korea, BMW Korea, IBM, Genesis BBQ Group, McKinsey, etc.

(서울=YBS뉴스통신) 한맑음 기자 = 한국e스포츠산업협회(KeIA)는 본사를 영국에 둔 블록체인 게임 플랫폼 Gaimin.io와 양해각서(MOU)를 체결하고 2020년 2월 23일에 협력 조항 및 세부 내용을 정했다.

2019년 설립된 KeIA는 e스포츠 산업 진흥, e스포츠 선수 권리 보호 및 프로게이머 및 소속 조직간에 상생 협력 및 시너지효과를 창출하는데 목적을 두고있다.

KeIA의 회장 Park Bong Kyu은 Blockcast.cc의 기자 Jenny Zheng과의 인터뷰에서 “한국의 제4차 산업혁명에서 e스포츠는 경제 분야 혁신 성장을 이끄는 새로운 성장 동력 중 하나로 여겨진다. 우리 협회의 노력은 머지않아 업계에 더 많은 가치를 창출하고 e스포츠 업계를 전 세계적으로 빠르게 발전시킬 것이라 믿는다. 뿐만 아니라, KeIA는 한국의 e스포츠 팀의 국제 발전을 적극적으로 지원하고 더 많은 국제 업무를 개척하도록 도울 것이다. Gaimin.io와 함께 한 이번 협력은 매우 시의적절하다고 본다. 우리의 협력을 통해 한국 및 유럽 시장을 연결하여 함께 발전할 수 있기를 바란다.”라고 말했다.

KeIA의 싱가포르 회장인 Anndy Lian의 소개로 Gaimin.io와 KeIA는 여러 번 만남을 가졌고 최근에 최종 협력 협의를 체결했다. Anndy Lian는 “이번 협력을 성사시킬 수 있어서 매우 즐겁다. Park회장님은 젊은 회사를 도와 목표를 실현하는 일을 오래동안 해왔다. 뿐만 아니라 새로운 기술에 많은 관심을 보였다. 블록체인 기술과 게임 응용의 결합은 아주 조화로운 조합이라고 생각한다. 블록체인이 제공하는 솔루션은 시스템의 안전성 및 신뢰도를 높일 수 있는데 이것이 바로 시장이 원하는 바이다.”라고 전했다.

Gaimin의 CEO인 Martin Speight은 “Gaimin와 KeIA의 협력은 양측 모두에게 이익과 혜택을 가져다 줄 것이라 믿는다. 한국의 게이머들은 우리 플랫폼의 채굴 보조 프로그램을 통해 어느 정도 수동적인 경제적인 수익을 얻을 것이고 e스포츠 프로게이머들은 우리의 플랫폼을 통해 해당 팀 및 지지자들과 더 효율적으로 소통하고 거래 결제를 진행하고 온라인에서 디지털 자산을 관리할 수 있다. Gaimin.io가 한국 게이머들을 위해 원스톱 솔루션을 제공해줄 수 있기를 바란다. 한국은 e스포츠산업의 중심이기에 우리는 한국의 뛰어난 업계 노하우와 프로게이머들을 유럽에 알리고 싶고 더 많은 젊은 게이머들이 프로게이머의 길을 선택할 수 있게끔 격려해주고 싶다”라고 덧붙였다.

Gaimin와 KeIA의 양해각서는 체결 후 즉시 발효된다. Gaimin는 전 세계의 사용자와 커뮤니티를 통해 KeIA의 이념을 전할 것이고 KeIA는 Gaimin와 함께 블록체인을 e스포츠 업계에 도입할 수 있는 가능성을 찾을 것으로 보인다.

金色财经:国际专家在2020年釜山世界区块链峰会上畅谈区块链未来发展

2020年釜山世界区块链峰会于2020年2月20日在釜山APEC House举行。此次大会由WBS MARVELS和釜山经济促进局共同举办,由韩国CEO峰会,釜山BNK金融集团,韩国区块链产业促进协会,韩国区块链创业协会,韩国区块链协会,全球金融科技产业促进中心,忠北区块链特别委员会和韩国电子竞技产业协会协办。釜山市政府官员,行业领袖和国际区块链技术专家齐聚釜山,共同探讨区块链技术的未来与行业发展。

政府间区块链顾问、《 2030年区块链革命》的作者Anndy Lian 与Breeze Max Web总裁兼首席执行官、《福布斯》业务发展委员会委员Andrew Faridani在题为“无法预测的未来”的讨论中进行了交流和讨论。

“行业的未来繁荣要依靠创新,而不是监管。行业的健康成长需要以创新来奠定良好的基础,在一定发展之后要有及时的法律法规政策跟上,以实现标准化。这其实是一种演化模型的工作方式 -我们反复试验,如果结果良好则在此基础上继续实验,直到找到最优的模式,新加坡的 Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) 在区块链监管这块上就做得很好。釜山是韩国的区块链特区,一直走在行业的最前端,在积极推进行业规范的同时,为企业提供自由宽松的发展环境。”Anndy在会上说到。

Andrew对此表示同意,并补充说:“最有能力帮助当局制定负责任的法规的公司是那些拥有最多用户和经验的公司。在区块链行业中,与游戏相结合的行业将有可能会成为最快落地并拥有最多用户的领域。负责任的技术公司,例如Gaimin,有能力成为这一领域的先驱。”

韩国前环境大臣Lee Maanee作为活动的主旨发言人也就此话题做出了进一步解释:“釜山作为韩国的区块链特区,是高新科技在韩国生根发芽的典范,也为公共和私营部门参与第四次工业革命奠定了基础。”

釜山世界区块链峰会主席Park Bong Kyu 说:“两年前区块链对于大部分人来说,还是一个非常陌生的领域,但我当时就非常看好这个赛道。我认为这将是一波新的浪潮,它将对我们的日常生活产生重大影响。因此我投身于这个行业,并以自己的全部热情进行学习和社区扩展。我希望将区块链知识教育给每个韩国人。”

来自Maker DAO,Conflux,Gaimin.io和Quarkchain等来自全球的优质项目也派出了区块链专家出席了此次活动,以表示对釜山区块链特区支持,并借此机会更进一步地了解了釜山经济自由特区。
