NFT Dry Spells? Maybe Not for “Zero to Hero” NFT

NFT Dry Spells? Maybe Not for “Zero to Hero” NFT

Crazy headlines saying that the total sales volumes of NFTs have plunged more than 90 percent. The next thing I remember, I had to launch my book “NFT: From Zero to Hero by Anndy Lian” in August.

When the idea was mooted, one common question is: Why launch it now? It’s the bear market. In all truth, I did not have the time to finish the book during the bull run, and since I did not have the time to test out the tools that are on the market, it is hard for me to choose what to recommend. Therefore the bear market is the best timing for me. I had time to complete the book, test out more tools that were recommended by my community and make plans for the book.

I did not really care what the book sales were going to be like in the very beginning. I only want to share knowledge with the community at large. When my team members told me that I should also worry about sales. I had a great idea of collaborating with projects and maybe a few meme coins to make things fun. There were many interests when I spoke to them, some wants a special cover, and others want to launch a collection together. 99 percent of them did not follow through. The typical- all talk, no action. This did not stop me.

Of course, some of them came around eventually. These are the wonderful people who made my book cover, song album cover, music production, NFTs, and all. I will be always grateful to those who have helped.

The book went on even better with the help of Bybit NFT Marketplace. After much shopping around and offers from various exchanges, I have chosen Bybit. They are willing to help and run the extra mile. I ended up being the first launch on their new program called GrabPic. Zero to Hero is also the first NFT book that launched on any exchange NFT marketplaces. Looking through the listings, I am also possibly the first who listed using a real profile picture.

The launch went well too. All the NFTs were sold out. All 8,000 of them were bought in the first minute. Pricing seems to be just right- $2.99 for a book with benefits. I did not want to sell the books at a very high price. As a book author, I would like to have more people reading the book, share my knowledge and have fun.

The fun part can come in many ways.

It can be having fun creating and minting your own NFTs.

  • In the book, I have shared various sites, platforms, and tools that you can create your own NFTs. If you are a designer, this will be a piece of cake.

It can be spotting the next big thing in the market.

  • This is a fun process, especially if you like statistics. There are rating portals that allow you to kind of predict which NFT has a bigger potential. If you have a good sense of what’s happening in the market and with a good analytical mind, the figures shared on some of these portals can guide you to your first successful NFT collection.

Or using Bybit’s merge function to get you more gifts and benefits.

  • If you have bought my book NFT and when my music NFT is launched, both of them can be merged to get you something else that is rarer and with more useful benefits. The methodology is simple and easy to understand. It is fun too.

The book talks about all you need to know. There are interesting trends that you should really look out for, tools, and useful platforms that you need to check out. At the end of the book, I shared some insights into the future of NFTs.

You can find out more about the book at Bybit NFT marketplace for now. The book will be available in major online bookstores in the coming months. I will be sharing more about the book and its activities on Hackernoon. Thanks again for all the support.

Anndy Lian on NewsX: India’s Official Digital Currency. Time To Make A Shift?

Anndy Lian on NewsX: India’s Official Digital Currency. Time To Make A Shift?

The development of Bitcoin and thousands of other cryptocurrencies these past few years have left India needing to create a framework for the creation of an official digital currency, which will be issued by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). A bill in this regard is planned to be tabled in the upcoming winter session of the parliament.

The Indian government is worried about the volatility of cryptocurrency, how it can be misused, and cryptocurrencies’ impact on the country and its economic situation. The primary idea of the RBI behind this move is to protect consumers from the appalling level of volatility seen in digital currency. The governor of RBI went to the extent of saying that cryptocurrencies pose a serious concern to the macroeconomic and financial stability of India.

It has been reported that a huge amount of ₹$40,000 (rupees) have already been spent when it comes to cryptocurrency. Furthermore, the idea of cryptocurrency was, when it was formulated in 2008, to bypass the banking system. This brought rise to RBI’s worry that cryptocurrency will overtake the banking system when it comes to investments in India.

Back when cryptocurrencies were banned in China, the fallout was that a lot of people and a lot of that investment and interest were redirected to the USA. India does not want to make that same mistake. It is almost certain that there will be a lot of problems if there is a blanket ban on cryptocurrency in India.

India is all set to create a framework for the creation of an official digital currency that will be issued by RBI. NewsX invited a panel of experts to talk about the topic. The expert panel consists of Akash Jindal, Sr Economist; Siddhartha Sogani, CEO of Creabaco Global Inc., Bitcoin Expert; Hanif Shaikh, CEO of Upsocial Network, Crypto Expert and Anndy Lian, Chairman, BigONE Exchange and Founding Member of Influxo. News Anchor, Vineet Malhotra discussed the following topics:

• How will this impact the total economic atmosphere of the country?
• Are cryptocurrencies such a threat to the economic environment of any country?
• What is the next step for India?
• How important is the concept of decentralisation when it comes to cryptocurrency?

Here’s what BigONE Chairman Anndy Lian had to say in an interview with India’s NewsX:

The right direction is to embrace cryptocurrency in all manners – because cryptocurrency is here to stay. It is the future of currency. In whatever way that it is called – currency or digital asset – it must be embraced.

Mainstream media may always say that cryptocurrencies are illegal as it may involve money laundering, among other things. But the fact is that the top currency used to carry out such illegal things is the very common US dollar.

Every move made via a blockchain is recorded on the chain. If Bitcoin is sent to a dodgy account, it’s going to be recorded on the chain. How will these dodgy accounts cash it out? Will they be so daring to do that?

BigONE is on the Top 40 list globally. All good exchanges must go through the same regulatory steps to ensure Know-Your-Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) processes are carried out. Through these frameworks, illegal acts are minimised.

Decentralisation does not, in any way, mean the removal of governments of taxes. It must be emphasised that when it comes to decentralisation, there is no intention of moving away from countries’ legacy systems or financial systems. Nonetheless, people are living in the real world, and not in the metaverse. Actual, physical money is still required to live as we head into the future.

The term “decentralisation” must not be tweaked in such a way that it is portrayed to be a bad thing. There exists proper entities – proper companies – to back the system. In the cryptocurrency world, everything needs to be registered. When founders of a project are doxxed, documentation to prove that will be kept in a centralised depository. If anything were to happen, tracing back to the person or team in charge will not be an issue.

It is imperative to redefine the term “decentralised” such that governments, family offices, and traditional banking staff know what it means exactly. In comparison to the traditional space, what is experienced in the cryptocurrency world is actually no different. For exchanges such as BigONE, different kinds of available financial requirements are stringently addressed. In this way, proper regulation is assured. Let’s be open-minded and address it.

The Indian government and crypto practitioners are open-minded and progressive about cryptocurrency. As the bill gets drafted, it is good that they would have all the experts to provide their confounding, broad, and elaborate views on what the cryptocurrency market pertains to, as well as the volatility and risks.

This is the second time Anndy Lian is invited to the NewsX Live commentary segment. The first time was with Garrett Minks, Founder & CTO, Rair and Vishal Malhotra, Actor on NFT.

Prominent names from large domestic enterprises can be mentioned such as Mr. Le Thanh Liem – Chief Financial Officer of Vinamilk, Mr. Nguyen Xuan Dai – Finance Director of Sovico Group, Mr. Le Vu Truong Deputy General director of Ernst & Young Vietnam; Mr. Nguyen Hoang Nam – Deputy General Director of PwC Vietnam, Mr. Phan Vu Hoang – Deputy General Director of Deloitte Vietnam, Ms. Chau Nguyen – Chief Representative of ACCA Vietnam, Mr. Yee Chung Seck – Deputy General Director of Baker & McKenzie Vietnam, Mr. Dang The Duc – Managing Partner of Indochine Counsel, Mr. Tim Evans – Managing Director of HSBC Vietnam, Mr. Le Khanh Lam – President of RSM Vietnam.

Dự báo và hoạch định tương lai cho bài toán tài chính doanh nghiệp

TheLEADERHơn 500 nhà lãnh đạo và chuyên gia tài chính sẽ quy tụ trong Diễn đàn CFO Việt Nam 2021 do CFO Việt Nam phối hợp với ACCA Việt Nam và Hiệp hội Quốc tế các nhà quản trị tài chính cấp cao (IAFEI) tổ chức.

Đã hơn hai năm kể từ khi các doanh nghiệp Việt Nam bắt đầu phải đương đầu với cuộc khủng hoảng do Covid-19 gây ra. Trong đó, làn sóng dịch lần thứ tư với mức độ ảnh hưởng rất lớn và kéo dài và hiện vẫn đang diễn biến phức tạp ở nhiều địa phương đã khiến nhiều doanh nghiệp rơi vào trạng thái kiệt sức cả về “thể chất” lẫn tinh thần.

Dù trải qua bốn đợt dịch, có thêm kinh nghiệm đương đầu với khủng hoảng và đã lên nhiều kế hoạch dự phòng để đảm bảo sản xuất, kinh doanh nhưng nhìn chung, các nhà lãnh đạo doanh nghiệp vẫn chưa thể chắc chắn với tương lai phía trước.

Có một thực tế là những ứng phó của các nhà lãnh đạo và doanh nghiệp trong bối cảnh hiện tại ít nhiều được đúc kết từ những kinh nghiệm trong quá khứ. Việc nắm bắt các bài học quý báu được khắc họa rõ ràng sẽ không những giúp các nhà lãnh đạo ứng biến hiệu quả với hiện tại mà còn có thể dự báo, hoạch định tương lai bằng những hành động hôm nay.

Trong tình hình đó, Diễn đàn CFO Việt Nam 2021 với chủ đề “Nhìn sâu và nhìn xa – Nhìn thấu tương lai trong hiện tại” sẽ được tổ chức với nhiều phiên thảo luận vừa mang tính xu hướng vừa sát với thực tế của doanh nghiệp.

Trong đó, các chuyên gia uy tín trong và ngoài nước sẽ cung cấp một bức tranh toàn cảnh về kinh tế cũng như những dự báo đi kèm với các khuyến nghị cho tương lai nhằm vạch ra định hướng cho con đường từ khủng hoảng đến phục hồi.

Đáng chú ý, khi mà đại dịch kéo dài khiến dòng tiền – “máu” của doanh nghiệp bị cạn kiệt thì vai trò của các nhà giám đốc tài chính lại trở nên vô cùng quan trọng. Việc thảo luận và xác định về vai trò của CFO trong việc định hình lại mô hình kinh doanh trong bối cảnh mới là rất cấp thiết.

Bên cạnh đó, việc minh bạch hóa thông tin kế toán trong các hoạt động của doanh nghiệp là yêu cầu nhất thiết phải thực hiện trong tiến trình hội nhập của Việt Nam.

Cách đây gần 20 năm, Việt Nam đã xây dựng và công bố hệ thống chuẩn mực kế toán trong lĩnh vực doanh nghiệp. Năm 2020, lộ trình triển khai áp dụng chuẩn mực báo cáo tài chính quốc tế (IFRS) tại các doanh nghiệp đã chính thức được Bộ Tài chính ban hành với 3 giai đoạn. Một là giai đoạn chuẩn bị từ năm 2020 đến hết năm 2021. Hai là giai đoạn áp dụng tự nguyện từ năm 2022 đến hết năm 2025. Ba là giai đoạn bắt buộc áp dụng từ sau năm 2025.

Các chuyên gia tài chính và quản trị hàng đầu trong nước và khu vực sẽ thảo luận về mức độ sẵn sàng áp dụng IFRS của doanh nghiệp tại Việt Nam, đồng thời đưa ra các lời khuyên cũng như chia sẻ kinh nghiệm trong việc áp dụng thành công chuẩn mực báo cáo tài chính quốc tế.

Đáng chú ý, một nghiên cứu mới nhất của PwC đã chỉ ra rằng, tiêu chí môi trường, xã hội và quản trị (ESG) hiện đã trở thành yếu tố quyết định đối với các nhà đầu tư hàng đầu thế giới. Tiêu chí này buộc các nhà đầu tư và công ty tiếp nhận đầu tư phải xác định lại rủi ro trong các mô hình kinh doanh truyền thống cũng như những cơ hội góp phần tạo ra giá trị bền vững trong tương lai. ESG cũng sẽ là chủ đề được các chuyên gia cùng nhau thảo luận trong Diễn đàn CFO Việt Nam năm nay.

Ngoài ra, các chuyên gia trong nước và khu vực sẽ cập nhật và phân tích quy định trọng yếu ảnh hưởng đến hoạt động của doanh nghiệp; thảo luận các xu hướng M&A, hoạt động tài chính phi tập trung…trong phiên thảo luận “Thấu hiểu và dự báo”.

Những kinh nghiệm thực tiễn trong quản trị điều hành tài chính doanh nghiệp, huy động vốn; lập kế hoạch thuế và nhiều nội dung hấp dẫn khác sẽ được chia sẻ trong phiên thảo luận mang tên “Làm chủ tương lai từ hôm nay”.

Những cái tên nổi bật đến từ các doanh nghiệp lớn trong nước có thể kể đến như ông Lê Thành Liêm – Giám đốc Điều hành Tài chính của Vinamilk, ông Nguyễn Xuân Đại – Giám đốc Tài chính Sovico Group, ông Lê Vũ Trường Phó tổng giám đốc Ernst & Young Vietnam; ông Nguyễn Hoàng Nam – Phó tổng giám đốc PwC Việt Nam, ông Phan Vũ Hoàng – Phó tổng giám đốc Deloitte Vietnam, bà Châu Nguyễn – Trưởng Đại diện ACCA Việt Nam, ông Yee Chung Seck – Phó tổng giám đốc Baker & McKenzie Vietnam, ông Đặng Thế Đức – Luật sư điều hành Indochine Counsel, ông Tim Evans – Giám đốc điều hành HSBC Vietnam, ông Lê Khánh Lâm – Chủ tịch RSM Việt Nam…

Các chuyên gia quốc tế tham dự thảo luận trong diễn đàn năm nay có chuyên gia blockchain Anndy Lian – Chủ tịch BigONE Exchange châu Á, ông Hiroaki Endo – Giám đốc điều hành quỹ đầu tư PGIM Nhật Bản; ông Sharath Martin – cố vấn chuyên môn ACCA khu vực ASEAN ANZ, ông Nguyễn Ngọc Bách – Chủ tịch AsiaInvest Group kiêm Chủ tịch CFO Vietnam.

Diễn đàn CFO Việt Nam 2021 là sự kiện dành cho các lãnh đạo và chuyên gia tài chính được tổ chức bởi CFO Việt Nam phối hợp với ACCA Việt Nam và Hiệp hội Quốc tế các nhà quản trị tài chính cấp cao (IAFEI). Sự kiện năm nay được tổ chức trực tuyến qua ZoomEvents dự kiến có sự tham gia của hơn 300 lãnh đạo doanh nghiệp và 400 CFO hội viên Hiệp hội quốc tế các nhà quản trị tài chính cấp cao (IAFEI).
