区块链教父Alexander Shulgin谈“为什么他看好区块链,游戏化和Gaimin.io”

Blockcast.cc:Hi Alexander,你好,Blockcast.cc的联合创始人Jenny Zheng首先,非常感谢你接受接受我们的采访。

Alexander Shulgin是一位非常有远见的投资人,在风险投资领域拥有傲人的战绩。为了更好地进行此次访谈,我们也同时邀请了Blockcast的老朋友 未来主义者,《 2030年区块链革命》(Blockchain Revolution 2030)的作者Anndy Lian来一起畅谈行业前景。

AS:Blockcast.cc的各位读者大家好,Jenny 你好,也感谢你的采访。

Anndy Lian: Hi Alexander, Hi Jenny, Blockcast.cc读者朋友们大家好!

Alexander是一个有非常远见的人,而且有超过15年的投资和风险投资经验,有人为“成功地将创意作品与商业结合起来的独特的俄罗斯作曲家”。目前管理GRUPPA KOMPANIY FAMILIA公司专门从事区块链,媒体,出版和娱乐领域的投资和风险投资。同时他也是全球知名咨询公司5大陆咨询集团(The 5 Continent Consulting Group ) 的创始人,该集团专门从事IT,生物技术,数字医疗保健和财务管理领域的研究。此外,还建立了Rasia Capital –一个专注于亚洲的投资机构,他还投资了一些区块链基础设施,以及电子竞技和混合现实项目

Alexander,不知道我刚刚的总结是否到位

AS:哈哈,这是一个很好的总结,Anndy。其实除了你刚刚提到的,一直也在积极参与到更多的新的投资活动中去。我个人对区块链和区块链基础设施进行了投资,因为我看到了这项技术的潜力与未来。

Anndy:我同意你的观点,区块链技术非常有前景的,是为什么我一直致力于将此技术向政府组织和社会进行推广的原因就目前来看还算是有趣有挑战也有成果。

我和Alexander通过Gaimin.io这个项目认识的这里补充一下: Gaimin是一家专注于区块链和游戏产业的平台。那么当初次听到他们的理念时是什么看法呢?你怎么看游戏和区块链的结合?

AS:我认为游戏和区块链技术是完美契合。因为我出身娱乐领域对此有比较多的关注,我发现近年来游戏在娱乐领域的增长最大的,我相信游戏将成为娱乐领域的主要市场之一。

而游戏和区块链技术则是两个高度互补的行业,并且未来它们之间将有可能是相互依存的。当我遇到Gaimin时,我在这个项目上看到了这两个领域的完美协同作用是为什么我同意担任Gaimin顾问的主要原因。

Anndy:我听说Gaimin团队是在年5月香港时与你第一次见面你当时对这些人的第一印象是怎样

AS:时间真是过得很快,感觉好像是前几天的事,没想到已经都18个月了哈哈第一次与他们会面的时候,我看到他们的充满热情的闪闪发光的眼睛,他们Gaimin的理念非常有信心,仅这一点就非常打动我。因为我过去投资的经验告诉我,对于一个项目来说,人(或者说团队)是最重要的

Anndy:在考察Gaimin项目以及它的后续发展情况之后,是什么让你选择继续与他们合作?

AS:这是一个很好的问题当我开始接触他们的时候区块链繁荣期或者说泡沫期吧,整个市场情绪高涨,项目井喷。然而就在不久之后泡沫就开始破裂,市场出现拐点,许多项目开始资金断裂市场情绪开始进入绝望,沮丧,失落。

尽管外部环境如此,Gaimin团队却像英国足球一样,坚韧顽强,开始更积极拓展,变得更加努力。看着他们穿越这个行业冬天,向前迈进,我更欣赏他们这种勇往直前的精神我觉得创业者的年龄并不重要,他们是15岁,25岁还是50岁,更重要的是他们必须有打败一切坚持到底的勇气

Anndy:也就是说你认为态度和热情是最重要的,那么如何看待这对项目的影响

AS:我认为在游戏世界,态度决定一切。无论是专业游戏竞技还是业余游戏,成功者都是那些对游戏充满热情的人,而这些人也反过来促进了游戏行业发展。我相信在不久的将来,每个人都将以某种方式参与游戏和游戏化中来玩家玩游戏并成为去中心化游戏网络的一部分。

区块链是什么?对我而言,就是由参与其中的每个人构建的网络结构,它是由我们所有人共同构建的。区块链所需要的的基础设施比谷歌和亚马逊大很多倍,因此该基础设施不应该是由政府或者是由大型跨国公司建立的,而是由像Gaimin这样的项目和你我这样的人为基础建立的作为对新鲜事物接受度最高和最活跃的网络人群,游戏玩家当然将成为其中的重要的组成部分。

Anndy:您在最近的一次采访中提到“分散的数据流将成为把生活方式和工业推向新高度的下一个动力。”这意味着什么

AS:这意味着对处理能力的需求将是巨大的,而世界上还只有很少人了解对未来我们对计算能力和电力的需求。刚刚你提到的引用应该是我在沙特阿拉伯利雅得举行的投资论坛上进行的主题演讲里说的。同场会议上,三星董事长此观点发表了差不多的看法,他还在现场对未来15年计算机处理能力需求增长进行了幻灯片演示,数据非常令人

几个月前,我与欧洲电信执行委员会成员Claudia Nemat进行了交谈。我们谈到了欧盟必须了解未来自身对计算能力的需求量以及整个数字市场对计算能力的需求量。这是一个巨大的(需求)水平,或许比现在高100倍。我问她欧盟将在哪里找到这些增量,她没有回答……可能她很困惑,因为这对欧盟来说是个难题。因为对能源,尤其是对绿色能源的巨大需求,需要一种全新的解决方案。Gaimin这样的平台就可以通过个人计算机剩余算力共享的方式社会需求提供一些增量。当然,这不是一个完整的解决方案,所以我们需要更多这样的平台/个人参与进来

Anndy:那么这将如何影响全球政策监管和合规性要求呢?数据安全性将如何保证呢?在全球范围内监管将是相同的,还是在某些辖区更宽松一些呢

AS:数据安全性是人们谈论的话题,但如果大家可以停下“谈论”,然后更专业地去研究区块链,他们将看到相比传统互联网,区块链基础设施具有不可篡改的特性,因此所有数据都安全的,并且用户将可以自己设定数据设置。

而且未来人们对于数据隐私的态度可能也会发生很大变化。加拿大著名哲学家Marshall McLuhan就曾说过有了全球互联网,我们就像一个地球村。 意思就是,就像古老的村庄里,我们都是一个大家庭的一分子,没有什么可隐瞒的,也无法隐藏。数字时代的年轻一代,以及之后的一代,他们可能将只有极少数据是私有的。为了更高的效率更好的效果,数据将会自由开放的,社会也是自由开放的

就拿我来说,我对自己的数据隐私并不那么担心没有什么可隐瞒的,没有什么可保密的好吧,也许我钱包的密码例外,但是我其他大部分个人数据其实不需要那么高的保密度

Anndy:因为未来的人们他们知道,他们所有信息都在链上是更安全的,所以没有必要担心是吗?

AS:是的,这是一个健康的社会开放的社会,高能高效的社会区块链的信任机制和技术有助于更轻松地达成这种稳定。这种去中心化机制也更好地在使用数据的同时保护这些数据的隐私人们的生活将更轻松美好

Anndy:好的,现在让我们来关注一下能源问题,当前全球对清洁,绿色能源需求越来越高,这将对区块链行业产生什么影响?区块链行业将如何解决它的耗能问题?

AS:这是一个非常好的问题。区块链挖矿能耗问题一直以来都存在特别是随着比特币的价格上涨,更多的矿工加入了进来,这带来了很多的环境问题。例如一些中国蒙古或者哈萨克斯坦的矿工,他们使用煤炭能源,特别是劣质煤,这些煤在燃烧时会造成很多污染。

但是我想说的是,这些问题都将随着技术的发展被慢慢解决。我们可以看下Google或Apple,然后看看他们如何解决这个问题。苹果仅仅几个月前就完全转向了绿色能源Google也在尝试做到100%绿色。许多技术公司都在引入越来越多的绿色能源,实际上我投资的采矿公司已经在使用水合能源了。据我所知,其他的很多区块链技术公司正在向可再生能源发展。区块链挖矿的能耗和环境的问题将会随着整个社会的技术发展而慢慢得到改善。不久的未来,我们将实现更充分更绿色的能源使用,没有任何能源会被浪费,甚至所有产生的热量或能量都将被再利用。

Anndy:游戏和游戏行业与其早期的形态相比已经发生了很大的变化,未来你预见会发生什么变化?

AS:是的,游戏行业确实是一个一直在不断进化的行业。今天我想重点谈谈游戏化(Gamification)这块,游戏化其实无处不在。新约圣经,耶稣告诉我们,我们必须“变得像孩子一样”,即成为孩子。小时候玩游戏真是太好了是一种生命赐予的完美的礼物,我珍视这种生命的礼物。游戏就是儿童了解世界的方式,他们通过游戏进行学习,同时学习也是游戏的一部分。

我们要像孩子一样玩游戏,并通过这种方式将日常繁琐的工作和程序趣味化,游戏化,想象力是游戏化的一部分。游戏化非常重要,特别是在我们的教育,健康和娱乐领域。

Blockcast.cc: 我之前听Martin (GaiminCEO) 讲过这么一个案例,我想可以帮助大家去理解游戏化。之前有个城市的地铁就采用了钢琴键盘楼梯的方式,改变了乘客们的运动方式。在装这个钢琴楼梯之前,几乎所有的人都选择乘电梯,而之后则变成了大部分人选择走楼梯。游戏化就是这么轻易地改变了人们的行为方式,而且还使人们可以轻松接受甚至享受其中。

Anndy:这确实太神奇了。世界变成了一个地球村,并以游戏化的方式升级我们的生活方式

AS:是的。在这个新的时代数据就是新的石油,而游戏化活动将是生产这些新石油的最佳时机。这些数据将使智慧城市,智慧技术,去中心化能源…..所有事物更加智能。因为娱乐和游戏会让人产生情感,而感情数据是所有数据中最丰富,最有价值的数因为我们不需要非情感数据,比如我们不需要无人机的数据,我们已经知道它们会从A到B,从B到C的无人机,因为它是预先编程的,这样的数据没有价值你在进行游戏化的活动时,会产生很多情绪数据,些都是最有价值的数据

Anndy:游戏化真的是非常有趣且令人着迷,希望未来我们可以就这个话题聊的更多。最后我想问几个个人问题,作为比特币协会的创始合伙人,你能给我们讲解一下比特币协会目前的情况吗?

AS:比特币协会旨在为区块链企业提供他们所需的解决方案,我很高兴成为比特币协会的一员,我主要负责协会中娱乐,媒体体育这几个领域。

Anndy:您目前都主要专注于哪些业务和领域的投资

AS:我会选: HappyTech, HappyTech,HappyTech,HappyTech。简单解释下,就是任何能使人高兴的技术。

Anndy:这是个挺有趣的名词,我还是第一次听这个概念。

AS: 2年前,我在香港发表了关于HappyTech的TED演讲。这是我第一次在媒体采访中提到这个理念,Blockcast 应该会第一个发布该领域新闻的媒体。

Anndy:投资Happy Tech是出于对它的热爱还是为了钱?

AS:我一直坚信幸福是生活中最重要的事情。每个父母都希望他们的孩子什么?不当经济学家,不当银行家,而是希望他们过的幸福我投资的愿景是希望能让我们的后代生活幸福到生命的尽头,这就是我现在想要做的。

Blockcast.cc:那我最后也问一个问题,Alexander你平时有空闲时间吗?如果有,您有没有最喜欢的消遣或爱好?

AS:Jenny,我很高兴我一生都在做我喜欢的工作我的工作是我的爱好。可以说我全天候24/7工作,也可以说我全天候24/7生活。我很幸运,我一生都从来没有“我必须要做”或“我必须要做”对此我感到非常幸运

Blockcast.cc:非常感谢你接受我们的采访,最后,您还有什么要和我们的读者朋友们分享的吗?

AS:我想分享一句我很喜欢的谚语

“当诺亚建造方舟时是没有下雨的。” 它激励着我,激励着我去思考,我们要顺应大势,在没有雨的时候去建造我们的方舟,当然也要时刻提前为下的状况做好准备要看清当下,清楚接下来会发生什么。需要看到自己的未来一步,十步,甚至一百步。

Blockcast.cc:Alexander, 非常感谢你的时间!感谢你为我们带来的分享和启发,希望能够在不久的将来再次与你相聚也感谢Anndy的协助!

The Godfather of Blockchain Alexander Shulgin on ‘Why he is Bullish on Blockchain, Gamification & Gaimin.io’

Blockcast.cc: My name is Jenny Zheng, co-founder of Blockcast.cc. This week, we have the honour to invite Alexander Shulgin for our interview. He is a true visionary and have a good track record in venture capital. In order to facilitate this interview better, we have invited Anndy Lian, a futurist and book author of Blockchain Revolution 2030 to be here.

Anndy: Hi Alexander, let me say that it is a privilege for me to talk with you.

AS: It is a privilege for me also.

Anndy Lian: Thank you. Well, to begin with, many people say you are a visionary, and it is often stated that you have more than 15 years of investment and venture capital experience.

You are also often referred to as “a unique Russian composer who successfully combines creative work with business”. I believe that you currently manage GRUPPA KOMPANIY FAMILIA, which specializes in investment and venture capital in blockchain, media, publishing, and entertainment sectors. You are a founder of a worldwide consulting group, The 5 Continent Consulting Group specializing in the IT-sector, biotechnologies, digital healthcare and financial management and amongst other ventures you also founded Rasia Capital – an investment boutique focusing on Asia. I hear that you also personally invest in Blockchain infrastructure, esports and Mixed Reality.

Would you say that is a good summary of what keeps you busy at the moment?

AS: It is a very good summary Anndy, but it is not really enough, I have a lot of other activities that keep me busy. I still have more funds and of course you are right that I personally invest a lot in blockchain, in blockchain infrastructure, because I see this technology and it has a very strong and optimistic future.

Anndy: I agree with you that blockchain technology has a very bright future. That is the reason why I started advising governments on this technology. It has been fun and fruitful for me. Well since we are connected through the company Gaimin.io and Gaimin are focused on the Blockchain and the gaming industry, they must have sounded like a good fit when you first met them?

AS: Yes, very good. A perfect fit. My background is entertainment, and gaming has the largest growth in this sector. Gaming will be one of the main markets in the entertainment sector. They are like a bird’s wings, each complementing the other: Entertainment and the Blockchain. There is interdependence between them. When I met Gaimin, I thought that what we are doing is perfect synergy. And that is the reason why I have agreed to be Gaimin’s advisor.

Anndy: I did hear that the Gaimin team met you for the first time by flying out to Hong Kong in May last year and that your meeting continued on to the famous Employees Only club. What was your first impression of the guys?

AS: Time flies! It seems like I met the team not so long time ago but it is almost 18 months ago. It was a big pleasure to meet the guys, to see their young sparkling eyes, very passionate and passionate over the ideas. I felt like I had a rock and roll time.

Anndy: And so, you’ve known them for well over a year now. You’ve been watching them obviously and how they have developed, what has made you continue working with them compared to many projects that have, I am sure, been introduced to you?

AS: It’s a very good question, because when we met it was a very good time for decentralized based projects and then after the May saw a kind of crypto-winter and many of the projects, many of the teams were very disappointed, they were in despair, depressed and they were lost. Whereas this team were like a British soccer club start going faster, start going harder, they are moving through this crypto-winter, going through this, moving forward and they are brave, they are brave to go ahead, I like it, I like it. It doesn’t matter the age of the founders, 15 years old or 50 years old or 25. They must have the courage to see things through: a good finish is based on a good start. I feel that they have the ‘cojones’ for the fight.

Anndy: So how do you see this attitude will have an impact on the gaming world?

AS: It’s good because the gaming world, the gaming community is huge. Both professional gaming, and amateur gaming, the people who just have a passion for gaming, the gaming industry is growing. In the near future, I believe that everyone will somehow be involved in gaming and gamification of everything, so you can play a game and become part of the decentralized net and your computer and your gadget will become a part of this mesh, of this network. What is blockchain for me? For me it is the one and only infrastructure in the world that was built by us, by you by me by Gaimin, by everyone who is somehow involved, it’s built by us all. The infrastructure of blockchain is many times larger than Google, than Amazon, so this infrastructure is not built by governments, not by big transnational companies, it is built by us, simple humans and to be a part of the infrastructure built by humans and to be a part of this, gamers will be a big part of this of course.

Anndy: You are quoted in a recent interview as saying “Decentralized flow of data will be the next fuel to push lifestyle and industry to the next level.” What does that mean for the demands on processing power?

AS: The demand on processing power will be huge. I was just a keynote speaker in Riyadh, in Saudi at an investment forum with key global speakers, and the chairman of Samsung gave a slide presentation on how big the need for computing power would be over the next 15 years, it will be dramatic, simply dramatic. Few people in the world understand the future demand for computing power and electricity. A few months ago, I was speaking with Claudia Nemat, a member of the Deutsche Telekom Executive Board in Europe. We spoke about the European Union and our discussion centred around the fact that they have to understand how much requirement there will be for computing power and the demand there will be throughout Europe from the digital market. It’s a huge (level of) demand, let’s say 100 times more than now. I asked her where the EU will find the energy for this and she didn’t answer …… probably she was confused because it is a difficult question for the European Union. Because the demand for energy is huge, especially for green energy and there needs to be a solution. One of the solutions which Gaimin can offer to society is using passive gaming machines. Of course it’s not a total solution. Maybe it’s not enough for the whole industry but every single 1,000 of 1% will still matter. Every single penny is a part of the pound.

Anndy: How will the security of this data impact the requirements of companies in compliance and regulatory and will that be the same all over the world or be easier in some jurisdictions?

AS: Security of data is a big thing that is hype that people talk about but if people stop with ‘the talk’ and look at the blockchain more professionally they will see the millions of gadgets, the internet of things, it is unhackable, the blockchain infrastructure is unhackable, so all the data will be safe. You can also set your data settings. For me, I’m fine with my data, I have nothing to hide, I have nothing to keep a secret, ok maybe the passwords to my wallet as yet, but all my personal data, I’m fine with it. I’m open. Marshall McLuhan, a well-known Canadian philosopher said that with the global internet, we are like one global village. So it’s like ancient time in the village where we are all part of one big family, nothing to hide, no need to keep a secret. The big noise about data, well let’s look to the young generation who are the digital generation and even more so the generation after that, They can’t understand what data is private. They are open, they don’t have anything to hide. This is the open society.

Anndy: Because they know, the young people know that all the information is out there, so there is no need to hide it?

AS: Yes, and this is a healthy society. An open society, nothing to hide, a trusting society and technology with the blockchain helps make this more stable, this mood of the new generation. This decentralized generation where it will be possible to keep all this data private as much as anyone reasonable wants.

Anndy: Focusing back on energy, how does the need for clean, green energy impact on the all-embracing blockchain technology and can blockchain be de-leveraged from ecological issues?

AS: Of course. Of course! Blockchain will help a lot. Currently, there is some “noise” where a few people blame the blockchain miners. Yes, for example there are still some Chinese miners, or miners from Mongolia, even for example Kazakhstan using energy from coal, especially poor quality coal which makes a lot of pollution while burning. However, search out Google or Apple and look at how they are addressing this. Apple only a couple of months ago turned completely to green energy. Before it was using many different sources of energy. Google as I read try to be 100% green. Many technology companies do not use green energy but with the blockchain we are introducing more and more green energy, in fact all my companies, especially those that are mining are using hydra energy and the blockchain technology companies are moving towards renewable energy so that no extra energy is used and no energy is wasted and even all the heat generated or energy created is reused.

Anndy: Gaming and games has been a world very separated from the mainstream for the most part, to date, what changes can you foresee in your crystal ball?

AS: Ah yes, you are talking about gamification, correct? Yes, gamification will be everywhere. If you turn to the New Testament, Jesus told us that we have to “become like a child” ie be the child, to be like a child, what is the child, look for the child. Until they are 7 years old, they just play the game. It is so beautiful to be a child, to play the game. This perfect gift which is your life. My life is a gift, of course and I understand this and I value this gift of life. To be like a child to play the game. With the gamification of everything. To make education like a game because that is how children learn, they learn through games. Learning from stories and tales since tales are part of the game. Using your imagination is a game. To begin to imagine begins the game. In the first 6 days, when the creator created our universe, it was all part of the game. To be a creator, you have to have and use imagination and imagination is a part of gamification. Gamification is very important. We need to focus on education, health and entertainment especially with this next industrial revolution occurring. This next stage of evolution will give to us a more free life. We don’t need to survive to work 24/7, like they did 100 years ago, 200 years ago. 300 years ago people worked 7 days a week from sunrise to sunset, they had to work to survive. They had to find food, to source heat to survive and the last industrial revolution gave the people 5 working days in a week and 8 hours per day. This latest industrial revolution will introduce to 80% of the population, the concept that they don’t have to work, they can have a universal income, or any other passive income. Perhaps they play a game and by playing a game they produce data, providing them with bonuses, providing them with perhaps assets that they can exchange for other assets which they don’t need money. This typology will allow us to return to the barter style of life like an old, ancient village, which is perfect. You don’t need a 3rd party like money.

Anndy: It’s amazing what you are saying. The world becomes a global village and returns to bartering in a way made possible through gamification.

AS: Yes, people will be playing the game because playing the game will be the perfect time to produce the new oil, which will be data. The data, 85% of all global data which will enable smart cities, smart technology, decentralized energy, everything ….. 85% or more will come from entertainment. Because entertainment and games produce emotion. Emotion, this is the richest of all data, the most valuable data because all other data is unemotional data. We don’t need unemotional data. Data from the drones we don’t need, drones that fly from A to B, from B to C, we already know it, it’s pre-programmed. Any unemotional data such as from bank payments, we don’t need. It’s simply a payment. I pay for my electricity, I pay my taxes, it’s not emotional. Where do the largest emotions come from? Films, music, games! When you play games you experience many emotions; you win, you lose, lots of emotions. This is the most valuable data, the new oil!

Anndy: Fascinating. We would love to know more but time is short, so perhaps more on another occasion. To conclude with a couple of final questions, can you tell us a little bit about your involvement in the Bitcoin Association?

AS: I’m a founding partner of Bitcoin Association. It was built to propose to enterprise and to business the solutions which they need and I’m happy to be a part of the Bitcoin Association to look after entertainment and media, sport, these sectors.

Anndy: If you were making investments for your kids, or loved ones in the tech’ sector what kind of businesses and niches would you be focusing on?

AS: HappyTech. HappyTech, HappyTech, HappyTech. Any technology that makes you happy.

Anndy: I’ve never heard of that, technology that makes you happy.

AS: Well then your media will be the first to tell the news about this sector. Not only gaming and entertainment. I gave a TED talk on HappyTech 2 years ago in Hong Kong.

Anndy: Are you doing this for the love of it, or for the money?

AS: So I told you a little bit earlier, that I don’t believe in money. Soon, it will be the barter system, a better way to have a happy life. What does every parent want for their children? They want them to be happy. Not to be an economist, not to be vice chairman of the bank. When the baby is born, the parents say I wish for them to be happy. It doesn’t matter where you are, with whom you are, just to be happy. So happiness is the main thing in life. To live your life happy to reach the end of your life and to say I lived a happy life. That’s what I am doing it for.

Blockcast.cc: Hi, Alexander, with all the things that you are doing, do you have any spare time available and if so, do you have a favourite pastime or any hobbies?

AS: Jenny, I am happy that all my life what I am doing is my work. My work is my hobby, I don’t work, I live my life 24/7. I’ve been very lucky that all my life has not felt like work. It has never been that ‘I must do’, or ‘I have to do’. All my life, every single minute my work has been my life, my life has been my work and I’m very happy about that.

Blockcast.cc: To round up this interview, would you like to share a quote with our audience that has inspired you?

AS: I live with one quote that I love:

“IT WASN’T RAINING WHEN NOAH BUILT THE ARK.”

It inspires me, it motivates me to think what will happen next when there is no rain, maybe there will be rain. You need to see your future one step ahead, or ten steps ahead or 100 steps ahead.

Blockcast: Thank you for your time Alexander! It has been fascinating and much appreciated. We hope to be able to get together again in the near future, thank you once again! Thank you Anndy for facilitating too.

AS: HappyTech. HappyTech, HappyTech, HappyTech. Any technology that makes you happy.

Anndy: I’ve never heard of that, technology that makes you happy.

AS: Well then your media will be the first to tell the news about this sector. Not only gaming and entertainment. I gave a TED talk on HappyTech 2 years ago in Hong Kong.

Anndy: Are you doing this for the love of it, or for the money?

AS: So I told you a little bit earlier, that I don’t believe in money. Soon, it will be the barter system, a better way to have a happy life. What does every parent want for their children? They want them to be happy. Not to be an economist, not to be vice chairman of the bank. When the baby is born, the parents say I wish for them to be happy. It doesn’t matter where you are, with whom you are, just to be happy. So happiness is the main thing in life. To live your life happy to reach the end of your life and to say I lived a happy life. That’s what I am doing it for.

Blockcast.cc: Hi, Alexander, with all the things that you are doing, do you have any spare time available and if so, do you have a favourite pastime or any hobbies?

AS: Jenny, I am happy that all my life what I am doing is my work. My work is my hobby, I don’t work, I live my life 24/7. I’ve been very lucky that all my life has not felt like work. It has never been that ‘I must do’, or ‘I have to do’. All my life, every single minute my work has been my life, my life has been my work and I’m very happy about that.

Blockcast.cc: To round up this interview, would you like to share a quote with our audience that has inspired you?

AS: I live with one quote that I love:

“IT WASN’T RAINING WHEN NOAH BUILT THE ARK.”

It inspires me, it motivates me to think what will happen next when there is no rain, maybe there will be rain. You need to see your future one step ahead, or ten steps ahead or 100 steps ahead.

Blockcast: Thank you for your time Alexander! It has been fascinating and much appreciated. We hope to be able to get together again in the near future, thank you once again! Thank you Anndy for facilitating too.

한국e스포츠산업협회 제1차 정식 연회 서울에서 개최: 블록체인으로 게임 업계의 새 역사 만들려고 함

2020년 1월 22일, 한국e스포츠산업협회(KeIA)가 서울에서 정식 회의를 가졌고 핵심 멤버들에게 한국 및 국제 시장의 최신 업무 상황을 소개했다.

KeIA은 e스포츠 산업을 진흥하고 e스포츠 선수들의 권리를 수호함과 동시에 프로게이머 및 프로게이머 소속 조직간에 윈윈할 수 있는 협력을 구축하고 시너지 효과를 내는데 목적을 두고 있다.

KeIA의 주석 Park Bong Kyu 및 여러 특별 게스트들은 환영사를 올렸고 협회 분업 구성, 향후 업무 방향 및 계획을 공개했다. Park Bong Kyu는 기자와의 인터뷰에서 “ 한국은 현대 e스포츠의 창시국이자 e스포츠 산업에서 가장 중요하고 활발한 나라 중의 하나이다. 한국 선수들은 여러 국제 대회에 참석하고 우승을 얻었으며 국제적 무대에서 한국 e스포츠 산업에 많은 명예와 인정을 가져다 주었다. 올해 우리는 우리의 비서장인James Kim과 함께 KeIA를 e스포츠 업계 및 게임 산업의 발전을 추진하는 교량으로 발전시키기 위해 노력할 것이다. 비록 우리의 이름은 한국e스포츠산업협회이지만 KeIA는 한국에 국한 된 업계협회만은 아니다. 우리는 KeIA를 통해 모든 게임 시장과 더 긴밀히 연결하고 세계 각지, 특히 중국, 싱가포르, 베트남 및 기타 지역의 기존 파트너들과 더 나은 업계의 발전을 위하여 노력할 것이다. 올해는 한국 e스포츠업계가 더 많은 수확을 얻을 한 해가 될 것이다.”

부비서장인 Kim Tae Yoon은 Blockcast.cc기자와의 인터뷰에서 “ 우리는 유럽시장에 대해 늘 관심을 가졌다. 향후에 더 많은 협회 활동을 통해 바다 건너의 업계 종사자들과 더 많은 교류를 가졌으면 한다. 이번 회의에서 KeIA는 외국인 종사자들을 초대해 그들의 경험을 공유했는데 아주 의미가 있다고 생각한다. 우리는 또한 블록체인 기술이 게임 업계에서의 운용을 탐색하고 새로운 기술이 어떻게 더 효과적으로 e스포츠 업계의 발전을 추진할 것인지를 살펴보려고 한다. KeIA가 더 많은 협력 파트너들과 함께 더 다원적이고 활력이 넘치는 시장을 구축할 수 있기를 기대함과 동시에 전 세계적으로 한국의 e스포츠 문화를 홍보하려고 한다.”라고 말했다.

Gaimin.io의 COO인 Clive Cross Aroskin은 회의에서 KeIA의 회원들과 아래와 같이 말했다. “우선 Park Bong Kyu 주석님의 초대에 감사한다. 오늘 행사를 통해 한국 e스포츠 산업에 대해 더 많이 이해하게 되었고 새로운 친구들을 많이 만나 뵙게 되었다. 블록체인 게임 플랫폼으로서 Gaimin는 원스톱 게임 서비스를 제공한다. 해당 플랫폼을 통해 게이머들은 게임 교류 거래를 진행할 수 있고 디지털 게임 자산을 관리 할 수 있으며 GMRX 토큰 보너스를 받을 수 있다. 더 많은 정보는 www.gaimin.io에 접속하여 확인하시기 바란다. 우리는 이미 채굴 프로그램을 런칭 했고 대중들은 곧 다운로드 할 수 있을 것이다.” 뿐만 아니라, 그는 Gaimin가 최근에 진행한 Biconomy과의 IEO를 소개했고 양측이 어떻게 협력을 통해 사용자 공유를 실행했는지에 관한 윈윈 경험을 공유했다.

Anndy Lian은 한국 시장에서 활약을 하고 있는 블록체인 기술 및 정책 전문가로서 KeIA의 싱가포르 주석으로 임명 받았다. 그는 “ 블록체인 및 암호화폐의 사용은 기존의 e스포츠 산업을 크게 바뀔 것이라 믿는다. 이는 게임을 위해 새로운 글로벌 커뮤니티를 구축해주고 업계의 성장을 도모할 것이다. 블록체인은 e스포츠의 미래이다. 블록체인을 통해 현존한 문제를 해결하고 격차를 해소할 수 있다. 예를 들면, 페이 문제, 온라인 및 오프라인 자산 관리 문제, 거래 문제 등이 있다. KeIA의 싱가포르 책임자로서 저는 제가 겪은 국제 경험을 KeIA에 공유할 것이고 KeIA과 더 많은 글로벌 회사, 기관 및 게이머들을 연결시킬 것이다. “라고 말했다.

Statista의 데이터에 따르면, 2022년, e스포츠 산업의 수익은 17.9억 달러에 달했고 블록체인 수입은 2023년에 233억 달러 이상으로 증가할 예상이다. 이 두 산업의 결합은 향후 몇 년 사이에 수 만억 달러의 수익을 창출 할 것이다.

제4차 산업혁명 기간에 e스포츠는 경제 영역 혁신 신성장을 이끌 중요한 엔진이 될 것이다. KeIA에 관한 더 많은 내용은 http://e-keia.com/에 접속하여 확인하시기를 바란다.

Blockcast.cc측이 한국에서 원탁회의 개최, 글로벌 게임 시장 연결을 토론

Blockcast.cc측은 2020년 1월 21일에 한국 게임 산업에 관한 원탁회의를 개최했다. 이번 원탁회의의 목적은 게임 시장을 한층 더 발전시키고 유럽 게이머와 아시아 게이머 사이의 격차를 해소하는 것이다.

Blockcast.cc은 싱가포르의 우수한 블록체인 미디어이자 뉴스 제공업체로서 글로벌 최신 블록체인 뉴스와 견해를 업계에 전달하고자 한다. Blockcast.cc는 2018년 싱가포르에서 설립했고 중국, 홍콩, 한국 및 말레이시아에 커뮤니티 네트워크를 두고 있다. 설립자 Jenny Zheng과 그 팀은 블록체인 기술이 게임 업계에서의 발전에 큰 관심을 두고 있고 일부 블록체인 게임회사의 시장 발전 전략 기획 및 시행을 담당했다. 그 영역은 온라인 카지노, 경마, e스포츠 등이 포함된다. 이번 한국의 원탁회의에서 그들은 한국 현지 기업 및 프로 게이머들과 함께 업계의 비전을 토론하고 새로운 파트너 관계를 탐색해 더 많은 게임 프로젝트 상의 협력을 도모하려고 노력했다.

(오른쪽부터Anndy Lian,Peter Lee,Clive Aroskin,Jenny Zheng)

이번 원탁회의에서 영국 유명한 블록체인 게임 플랫폼 Gaimin.io와 한국 블록체인 기술 회사 Nix Mobba은 성공적으로 협력 의향 달성하였고 양측 모두 곧 페이 및 월렛 분야에서의 협력을 추구할 것을 동의했다.
Nix Mobba(www.nixblock.com)는 한국에서 시작해서 전 세계로 발전한 국제화 블록체인 기술 회사이다. 이 회사는 암호화폐 지불 및 디지털 자산 관리 시스템 등 블록체인 기술과 게임이 결합한 영역의 관련 서비스에 몰두하고 있다. CEO인James Kim은 성공적인 체인 창업 기업가로서 블록체인과 게임 분야에 능숙할 뿐만 아니라 금융 및 패선 등 기타 업계 지식도 풍부하다. James는 풍부한 창업 및 관리 경험을 갖췄고 크로스 업계에 능숙하다. 최근 몇 년 e스포츠 영역에 매우 활약을 보였고 2020년에 지역 대형 e스포츠 행사를 개최하려고 한다. 현재Nix Mobba는 한국 및 싱가포르에서 모두 등록하고 운영 중에 있다.
Gaimin.io(www.gaimin.io)는 본사를 영국 맨체스터에 둔 회사이자 블록체인 기술에 기반한 게임 플랫폼이다. 해당 플랫폼을 통해 게이머들은 개인 PC의 유휴 시간에 자동으로 컴퓨터의 GPU 해시 레이트를 공유해 경제적인 수익을 얻을 수 있다. 이와 동시에 게이머들은 Gaimin플랫폼에서 얻은Gaimin.io토큰 GMRX으로 구매와 지불을 할 수 있어 경제적 부담을 줄이고 게임 체험을 업그레이드 할 수 있다. Gaimin.io의 COO인 Clive Aroskin은 스위스에서 서울로 와서 이번 회의에 참석했다.

Nixpay는 Nix Mobba 산하의 중요 제품 시리즈 중의 하나이다. 해당 제품을 통해 게이머들은 플랫폼에서 디지털 자산과 한국의 법정화폐인 원화의 교환을 진행할 수 있다. James와 Clive은 만나자마자 의기 투합되었다. 그들은 Gaimin와 Nixpay의 협력은 두 제품의 효율 및 사용 체험을 최대화 할 수 있고 아시아 및 유럽 지역의 게임 시장과 게이머들을 더 밀접히 연결할 수 있다고 생각한다.


(오른쪽부터James Kim,Park Bong Kyu,Anndy Lian,Clive Aroskin,Jenny Zheng)

James는 회의 후 Blockcast.cc 기자와의 인터뷰에서 “Nix Mobba는 이미 성공적으로 한국 및 중국 시장에 진입했고 우리의 기술은 아주 성숙했으며 비즈니스 가치도 입증 되었다. 우리가 Gaimin.io와의 협력을 통해 유럽 시장에 진출할 수 있으면 우리는 더 큰 시장을 얻고 크게 성장할 것이다. 오늘 오후, 우리는 기술팀과 함께 Gaimin와의 협력에 관해 토론을 했고 이번 Gaimin와의 협력을 아주 긍정적으로 평가하고 기대한다.”라고 말했다.

Clive는 회의 후 기자에게 “Blockcast.cc와 Jenny가 이번 원탁회의를 마련해 주어서 매우 고맙다. 이로써 잠재한 지역 협력 파트너 Nix Mobba를 만나게 되었고 회의에서 매우 가치 있는 토론을 가지게 되었고 협력에 대해 매우 기대한다. 뿐만 아니라 기타 한국 게임 업계의 종사자들을 만나게 되었고 Gaimin의 플랫폼 및 비전을 소개하게 되었다. 향후 더 많은 한국 친구들이 우리와 함께 하고 게임 시장의 비전을 같이 실현해 나갈 수 있기 바란다. 이번 한국 행에서 많은 수확을 얻었고 우리 팀은 Nix Mobba와 James와 함께 공식적인 MOU 체결 준비를 하고 있다. “라고 말했다. 또한, “Biconomy와의 제3차 IEO의 성공은 우리에게 많은 용기를 주었고 Gaimin의 사용자 범위를 확대했다. Blockcast.cc는 우리의 언론 파트너로서 전 과정 함께 소통하고 협력하여 더 순조롭게 진행 될 수 있게끔 도움을 주었다. 이번 원탁회의도Blockcast.cc측이 적극적으로 협조하였기에 더 많은 우수한 한국 업계 리더들과 만날 수 있게 되었고 Nix Mobba와 같은 파트너와 연결하고 협력 할 수 있게 되었다. Blockcast.cc측의 모든 노고에 감사함을 표한다”라고 덧붙였다.

한국 정부 경상북도 블록체인 특별 위원회 회원인 Anndy Lian는 회의에서 “Blockcast.cc측이 주최한 일련의 행사에서 우리는 많은 게임 업계 종업자와 프로 게이머들을 만나 뵙게 되었다. 그 중 많은 분들이 블록체인에 대해 궁금해하고 해당 기술이 게임 업계에 어떤 기여를 해줄 것인지에 대해 많은 기대를 가졌다. 저 또한 회의에서 Clive노트북에 있는 Gaimin.io의 채굴 프로그램 을 볼 수 있게 되었고 해당 프로그램이 얼마나 흥미롭고 잠재력이 큰지를 느끼게 되었다. Blockcast.cc의 초대에 감사하다. Blockcast.cc의 오프라인 행사는 늘 목표가 명확하며 매우 효율적이다. 업계에서 이러한 의미 있고 가치 있는 행사들이 더 많이 개최되어야 한다고 생각한다”라고 말했다.

원탁회의 시리즈는 Blockcast.cc 2020년 로드맵의 중요 구성 부분으로서 규모가 작고 목표가 명확한 행사를 개최해 블록체인 업계간의 협력을 도모하는데 목적을 두고 있다. 이와 동시에Blockcast.cc는 2020년에 150명의 블록체인 업계 전문 인사를 초대해 2020년에 대형 업계 회의 ‘Redecentralise’를 개최하려고 한다. Blockcast.cc의 더 많은 정보는www.blockcast.cc를 방문하여 확인 하시기 바란다.

Korea eSports Industry Association Official Meeting: Pushing Gaming to New Heights with Blockchain

The Korea eSports Industry Association (KeIA) held an official meeting to update their core members on the latest work carried out in both the Korean and international markets.

KeIA aims to revitalize the eSports industry, protect the rights of esports players and create win-win cooperation and synergies between members of the Association and their affiliations.

Chairman of KeIA, Bong Kyu Park welcomed everyone to the meeting and looked forward to a pleasant and exciting year ahead for the esports scene in South Korea. “South Korea has been one of the most active in eSports. We took part and won many international tournaments. This year, I will lead KeIA together with my Secretary General James Kim promoting eSports and getting ourselves connected to new markets. We are not just a Korean Association, we are international with existing partners in China, Singapore, Vietnam and beyond.”

Deputy Secretary General Tae Yoon Kim told our Blockcast.cc reporter: “I am particularly interested in reaching out to the European markets. For this meeting, we invited foreign guests to share their experiences with us. We want to explore how blockchain technology can help us promote esports more effectively. We want to build the market together and spread the esports Korean culture globally.”

“Thank you to Chairman Park for the invitation. As a blockchain gaming platform, we allow gamers to communicate with other gamers, manage their digital gaming assets and be rewarded with GMRX tokens for allowing our platform to use their GPU power. This is the power of our gaming platform. You can find out more at www.gaimin.io and the mining plugin will be launched to the public for download very soon.” said Clive Aroskin, COO of Gaimin.io, who gave a speech during the meeting. He also shared how their IEO with Biconomy had introduced global gamers to the platform and he hopes to share their experiences with the Association.

Anndy Lian who is an active member in the Korean technology community is being appointed as the Chairman for Singapore at KeIA: “I believe that blockchain technology and the usage of cryptocurrencies will transform the eSports industry as it opens up new global communities for the games to grow. Blockchain is the future of esports, it helps to fill up existing issues and gaps like payment along with bridging online and offline assets. As the chairman, I want to bring my international experiences to the KeIA and connect the KeIA to global companies and players.”

According to Statista, the eSports industry will reach USD1.79 billion in 2022, while blockchain technology revenues are expected to climb to over USD23.3 billion in size by 2023. A combination of both industries will produce revenues in the trillions of dollars over the coming years.

Blockcast.cc是新加坡领先的区块链媒体和新闻源,旨在为行业带来全球最新的区块链新闻和见解。 Blockcast.cc于2018年在新加坡成立,并在中国,香港,韩国和马来西亚设有社区网络。创始人Jenny Zheng及其团队一直对区块链技术在游戏行业的发展特别感兴趣,并成功地为一些区块链游戏公司策划并执行了市场发展战略,涉及在线赌场,赛马,电子竞技等领域。这次在韩国的圆桌会谈上,他们与韩国本土机构和职业玩家们共同讨论行业前景并探索新的合作伙伴关系,以实现更多的游戏项目上的的合作。

(从左到右-James Kim,Park Bong Kyu,Anndy Lian,Clive Aroskin,Jenny Zheng)

在此次圆桌会议上,英国知名区块链游戏平台Gaimin.io与韩国区块链技术公司Nix Mobba成功达成合作意向,双方将在不久的未来同意探索在支付和钱包领域的合作。

Nix Mobba(www.nixblock.com)是一家始于韩国,也许遍及世界的国际化区块链技术公司,专注于区块链技术与游戏结合领域的相关服务,例如加密货币支付和数字资产管理系统。他们的首席执行官James Kim是一位成功的连续创业企业家,不仅在区块链和游戏领域颇有建树,也涉足金融和时尚等其他行业。James有丰富的创业和管理经验,擅长跨界。他近两年在电子竞技领域非常活跃,并计划在2020年组织区域性大型电子竞技活动。目前Nix Mobba在韩国和新加坡均已注册运行。

Gaimin.io(www.gaimin.io)是一家总部位于英国曼彻斯特的公司,也是一家基于区块链技术的游戏平台。该平台可让玩家的个人电脑在空闲时自动分享该电脑的GPU算力,并为游戏玩家赢得经济收益。同时,游戏玩家还可以在Gaimin平台上利用所获得的Gaimin.io代币GMRX进行购买和支付,从而减少游戏玩家的经济负担并提升他们的游戏体验。 Gaimin.io的首席运营官Clive Aroskin专门从瑞士飞到首尔,参加了此次会议。

Nixpay是Nix Mobba旗下的重要产品系列之一,通过该产品,游戏玩家可以轻松地在平台上进行数字资产与韩国法定货币 -韩元之间的兑换。 James与Clive一见如故,他们都认为Gaimin与Nixpay的合作将最大程度地提升两个产品的效率和使用体验,并可以将亚洲欧洲两个地区的游戏市场和玩家更紧密地联系在一起。

“ Nix Mobba已经成功打入韩国和中国市场,我们的技术很成熟,并且已经被证明具有商业价值。如果我们能通过Gaimin.io打通欧洲市场,那将是我们市场发展的一大飞跃。今天下午我们就已经与技术部门一起,就与Gaimin合作事项展开了研讨,我十分看好并期待此次与Gaimin的合作。” James在会后对Blockcast.cc的记者透露道。

“非常感谢Blockcast.cc和Jenny组织的此次圆桌会议。让我们遇到了潜在的地区合作伙伴Nix Mobba,我们在会上进行了许多非常有价值的讨论,我十分期待与他们一起合作。我们还结识了许多其他的韩国游戏行业的朋友,我向他们介绍了Gaimin的平台和愿景,我很高兴他们都对此表现出了极高的兴趣。我期待未来在韩国市场更多的交流和合作,也希望未来有更多的韩国朋友认识并加入我们,共同实现提升游戏市场的愿景。我很高兴此行获得了丰硕成果,目前我们的团队已经在努力与Nix Mobba和James共同准备签署正式的谅解备忘录。” Clive在会后对记者透露道, “我们与Biconomy的第三个IEO的成功为我们提供了更大的信心,并扩大了Gaimin的用户范围。而Blockcast.cc作为我们的媒体伙伴在整个过程中一直与我们紧密沟通协作,让整个过程更加顺畅。此次圆桌会议也正是因为他们的积极协调,使我们有机会与更多的韩国行业领袖会面,并促成了我们与Nix Mobba等伙伴的链接与合作,感谢他们的一路陪伴。”

(从左到右-Anndy Lian,Peter Lee,Clive Aroskin,Jenny Zheng)

“在Blockcast.cc组织的系列活动中,我遇到了许多游戏行业从业者和职业竞技选手,其中许多人对区块链很好奇,并对该技术可以为游戏行业做什么很期待。我还有幸在会上体验到了Clive笔记本电脑上的Gaimin.io挖矿插件,它很有趣并且很有潜力。感谢Blockcast.cc的邀请,他们的线下活动一直都很目标明确并非常高效,行业中应该多一些这类的有意义有价值的会找。” 韩国政府庆尚北道区块链特别委员会成员Anndy Lian在会上评论道。

圆桌会议系列是Blockcast.cc 2020年路线图的重要组成部分,旨在开展小型精准活动达成区块链行业间合作。 同时,Blockcast.cc还将在这一年里采访150位区块链行业专业人士,并在2020年推出大型行业会议”Redecentralise”。有关Blockcast.cc的更多信息,请访问www.blockcast.cc。

Gamers are rewarded with the Gaimin.io native GMRX crypto token which can be used as a payment method directly on the Gaimin.io platform’s marketplace allowing gamers to enjoy an improved gaming experience. Clive Aroskin, COO of Gaimin.io had specially travelled over from meetings in Switzerland, to be present.

Nixpay is one of Nix Mobba’s product lines that allow gamers to convert digital assets into Korea’s currency, the won, and vice versa. Both James and Clive met each other for the first time and both of them liked the idea of connecting gamers from both markets together.

“Nix has access to the Korean and Chinese markets. Our technology is mature and has proven commercials. It will be good if we can capture the European market through Gaimin.io. We have connected our technology departments together this afternoon and this starts our intention to collaborate.” James remarked.

“A big thank you for the roundtable table organized by Blockcast.cc. We had really good discussions on how to work together with Nix Mobba. We have also managed to meet many other friends in Korea who are gaming centric and fully understand the vision of how our platform will change the gaming market. My team were delighted to hear this news and are already working hard to create a formal MOU with James.” Clive said. “Our third IEO with Biconomy gives us even more confidence and a wider reach of target audiences. This latest IEO work gave us the opportunity to return to Korea and meet partners like Nix to further our journey.”

“I flew in specially for this roundtable event and it was worth the effort. I have met numerous gamers over this series organized by Blockcast.cc and many of them want to see what blockchain can do for the gaming industry. I also managed to get a glimpse of the Gaimin.io mining plugin on Clive’s laptop and it looks great! Now, we are looking forward to the public download for the mining plugin.” Anndy Lian, Member of Gyeongsangbuk-do Blockchain Special Committee, Government of the Republic of Korea commented.

The roundtable series is part of the Blockcast.cc roadmap to reach out to blockchain companies. Blockcast.cc also aims to interview 150 blockchain professionals and organize their flagship event “Redecentralise” in 2020. For more information about Blockcast.cc, visit www.blockcast.cc/interviews.
