The FINWISE Hong Kong Summit was held at the L’ hotel Nina et Convention Centre，Hong Kong from 10th to 11th. Linfinity CEO Anndy Lian was invited to attend the summit and delivered a keynote speech.
“The emergence of blockchain has provided unlimited imagination for many traditional industries, but for now, there are still lots of problems to be solved in this field.” Anndy said in his speech, “The true value of blockchain technology, first of all, should be used as a service, implanted into the traditional industry, and constantly improved in the integration with the traditional industry.”
“This requires a process, but simply relying on blockchain is not enough. In terms of anti-counterfeiting solution in the supply chain industry, we also need to work with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT), and the business appeals of company and consumer also need to be considered thoroughly. To accelerate the commercialization of blockchain technology, business should take the leading position.”
Recently, Linfinity held a Roundtable discussion in Hong Kong, inviting industry leaders, including the chairmen of the Hong Kong Shippers’ Council (HKSC) and the Hong Kong Association of Freight Forwarding and Logistics Ltd (HAFFA), to share their insights on the commercialization of blockchain technology. At this moment, Linfinity has reached consensus with a number of Hong Kong companies on blockchain technology cooperation and started its footprint in Hong Kong.
