Anndy Lian: Keynote Speech at Blockchain Summit LatAm 2021

Anndy Lian: Keynote Speech at Blockchain Summit LatAm 2021

Decentralized crypto initiatives and government moves to co-opt crypto show that Latin American is at the crossroads of a revolution in crypto adoption, said Anndy Lian, Chairman of BigONE Exchange, following a successful Blockchain Summit LatAm, which ended on September 10.

“The news that El Salvador has launched Bitcoin as legal tender is encouraging news for the whole region, but such a decentralized currency needs to include education and practical tools for everyday use that are built with its users in mind – principles which are at the heart of our own global exchange,” he added.

The trend towards greater use of cryptocurrency in Latin America is not hard to see. Between 2017 and 2020, the bitcoin volume in Latin America has an average of 6% of the volume of BTC globally. In March 2020, Latin America had a 15.8% share, compared to 6% in the US. In April 2021, the Latin American countries with the highest volume of cryptocurrencies are Colombia, with 45% of bitcoin volume in the region; followed by Peru with 13%; Chile with 12%; Mexico with 11%; and Brazil with 11%.

Another trend is the growing commitment from Latin American governments to advance central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), with the Central Bank of Venezuela launching its CBDC in October. The region’s regulators aren’t uniformly in favor of cryptocurrency, however, so progress its likely to be uneven.

While the LatAm conference was taking place Mauricio Moura, a director of the Central Bank of Brazil, stated that anonymity when using crypto won’t be a choice for users in future, an approach likely to be followed by other Latin American governments. Nevertheless, Visa’s vice president of new business in Brazil stated recently that the company will be testing direct bitcoin payments this year.

The potential of decentralized digital assets to disrupt Latin American markets isn’t going away any time soon however, especially with the global boom in the market for NFTs.  In Latin America culture, where art, design, music, and sports are celebrated, the NFT market is starting to grow, such as Influxo’s Ronaldinho NFT supported by BigONE, which will be launched shortly. Although NFTs are still relatively new to Latin America marketplaces, it’s a part of the revolution in crypto adoption that will only increase in popularity.

Anndy Lian is an early blockchain adopter and experienced serial entrepreneur who is known for his work in the government sector. He is a best selling book author “Blockchain Revolution 2030”. Currently, he is appointed as Chairman, Asia for BigONE Exchange and Chief Digital Advisor, Mongolia Productivity Organisation. Anndy is part of the Gyeongsangbuk-do Blockchain Special Committee, Government of Republic Korea, together with industry experts such as Brock Pierce. 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 and was previously the Advisory Board Member of Hyundai DAC Technology.

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”.

Keynote speech by Anndy Lian: Understand DeFi to Build Regulatory Frameworks Around it

Keynote speech by Anndy Lian: Understand DeFi to Build Regulatory Frameworks Around it

Decentralized Finance (DeFi) is still in rapid growth. According to a report from CoinGecko, the industry has reached a $100 billion capitalization and over one million users. Global DeFi Investment Summit, 2-3 June 2021, Dubai brought experts globally together. Anndy Lian, Advisory Board Member to Hyundai DAC and also Chief Digital Advisor to Mongolian Productivity Organization gave a keynote presentation titled “Understand DeFi to Build Regulatory Frameworks Around it”.

Anndy walked the audiences through the challenges of DeFi tokens. “In 2019, we were all experimenting. Then in 2020, we wonder if DeFi tokens have real value. But in 2021 onwards, we should look closely at them if they can survive the bear plunges, then survive the financial crisis and then a global crisis. This is a real test. This test is not for DeFi, it is for NFT, IDOs and the whole cryptocurrency space.”

Lian highlighted that the decentralized governance of DeFi services poses operational challenges and if often not well understood in the exposures in financial risks and compliance issues. DeFi’s landscape is ever-changing and it is tough for the traditional finance industry to keep up. The governments are also playing catch up.

“Regulators understand that it is hard to regulate DeFi DAPPS built on a fully public and decentralised blockchain and they do not trust “code is law” thesis, wherein law represents a set of rules that are written and enforced through immutable code as there are possibilities of errors and frauds. I have suggested to the governments to encourage participants in the DeFi Industry to have co-operative models to assume governance and liability of operating the platform. This also provides some guidance and protection to DeFi application users or investors. This is maybe an unpopular opinion to some but this could be one way to co-exist.” Anndy Lian said.

At the end of the keynote speech, he urges the regulators to take this time to shape expectations by working with the right parties, while taking enforcement action against bad actors.

Global DeFi Investment Summit is a 2-day Program being curated based on guidelines from industry experts, with a target of about 200+ delegates. The goal of this event is to connect global investors and DeFi experts in this space including emerging start-ups – with regional business and leaders from across key industry verticals. This event has also featured other keynote speakers like Justin Sun, Founder at TRON and Tim Draper, Founder at Draper Associates & DFJ.
