Anndy Lian, a best selling author, joins the Podcast to discuss his newly released book called NFT: From Zero to Hero, where he aims both at the general public that wish to learn about NFT basics but also those who wish to use this technology to develop and build with it.
NFT stands for non-fungible token. Unlike standardized and fungible tokens that can be split almost an infinite number of times (such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other interchangeable tokens), NFTs are unique in nature. For example, Peter’s one BTC and Jane’s one BTC are basically the same in function, property rights, and interests. Still, an NFT can contain more unique information, including videos, pictures, and music, allowing its creator to assign more value to it.
Therefore, NFTs are ideal for recording and storing ownership of digital products, including artworks, games, and collectibles.

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”.
