Mr Anndy Lian, Book Author of Blockchain Revolution 2030 and also an Ambassador to Blockchain Special Committee of the Gyeongsangbuk-do summarised all the points made: “Smart cities are urban area that uses Internet of things to collect data and manage the lives and cities more efficiently. Enhancing the quality and performance of components such as transportation and utilities. Digital solutions and new technologies such as blockchain will help solve the trust issues and achieve higher quality of life inside the smart cities. Also the other topic we should look at is how STOs can help fund smart cities and how a regulated digital exchange can facilitate such fund raising. In Singapore, upcoming regulated property asset-backed exchange- SingDax is looking at this and they will surely change the industry. I am looking forward to this.”
