The summit focused on the topic of “Shaping the Impossible”. At the meeting, Andrew W Brentano, founder and CEO of Tiny Farm, gave a keynote speech on “Innovation and Productivity of New Food Types” saying that new food types(vegetarian meat or insect foods) must be technically processed in the process of production; considering different characteristics of ingredients, consumers often fail to identify the quality or safety of raw materials.
Anndy Lian, CEO of Linfinity, conducted an in-depth discussion with Dr. Santhi Kanoktanaporn, Secretary General of APO, on this point at the meeting. Anndy pointed out that the emergence of blockchain will bring the next industrial revolution sooner than expected. The decentralization and traceability of blockchain technology provide technical support for the construction of trusted supply chain ecosystem. From production to customers, the whole process is recorded on the chain, and each block of information is mutually authenticated, thus ensuring the authenticity of product, the transparency of information, the traceability of source and the non-tampering of information.
Dr. Santhi Kanoktanaporn agreed with Anndy’s comments, noting that the combination of blockchain with traditional supply chain will greatly improve the overall security and trust of the industry, and deliver quality services to more people.
Currently, he is appointed as the Chief Digital Advisor at Mongolia Productivity Organization, championing national digitization. Prior to his current appointments, he was the Chairman of BigONE Exchange, a global top 30 ranked crypto spot exchange and was also the Advisory Board Member for Hyundai DAC, the blockchain arm of South Korea’s largest car manufacturer Hyundai Motor Group. Lian played a pivotal role as the Blockchain Advisor for Asian Productivity Organisation (APO), an intergovernmental organization committed to improving productivity in the Asia-Pacific region.
An avid supporter of incubating start-ups, Anndy has also been a private investor for the past eight years. With a growth investment mindset, Anndy strategically demonstrates this in the companies he chooses to be involved with. He believes that what he is doing through blockchain technology currently will revolutionise and redefine traditional businesses. He also believes that the blockchain industry has to be “redecentralised”.
