Thanks, Startup India Magazine Team for featuring my keynote speech on “Navigating Blockchain & Cryptocurrency in the Public Sector”.

Keynote Speech by Anndy Lian: “Navigating Blockchain & Cryptocurrency in the Public Sector”

Anndy Lian, Advisory Board Member of Hyundai DAC Technology gives a keynote speech at the Digital Week Online on the topic “Navigating blockchain & cryptocurrency in the public sector”. Digital Week Online is an online Summit held from 12-16th October 2020. This event unites tech entrepreneurs, authors, investors, innovators, leading corporates, and key governments

At his keynote speech, Anndy shares his experiences on how to deal with the different governments while introducing blockchain and cryptocurrency in the most effective manner. He started by giving a quick overview. Stating that the blockchain technology is possibly one of the finest piece of art when it comes to this century. In simple words, this technology is a decentralized ledger and it is immutable, with core functions like traceability and tracking. It is and will be widely used in finance, manufacturing, supply chain and governments. But it has not welcomed by all especially when it comes to cryptocurrencies, in fact, cryptocurrencies have been denounced by several governments due to a number of reasons. For example, Bitcoin, the leading cryptocurrency, has been banned in some countries, including Nepal, Bangladesh, among others. Many other countries have in the past made it clear that they will not accept Bitcoin but will accept blockchain technology.

“This is a good start for governments. For those who are currently dealing with governments or intend to participate in a public sector bid, please bear in mind that you need to address what is lacking and what can blockchain help them solve and not pure fluff.” Anndy Lian explained.

Anndy emphasises that governments are open to the technology so far based on his experiences on the ground when dealing with them. He goes on saying that food security, ID management and controlling the flow of money are some of the “hot” topics. Countries like Singapore, Estonia, South Korea are already embarking their journey to solve problems using blockchain technology together with their existing infrastructures.

Navigating through the public sectors needs time and determination. Businesses must be ready before speaking to the government to sell their products and solutions. They need to build themselves up properly by building up trust and increase credibility through partnerships and with sufficient marketing. Your brand has to gain some traction before approaching them for any form of business. Anndy went on by highlighting that all these are only made possible if the solution providers are backed by real, solid technology that is robust enough to tackle their demand. He has also noted that many of the startup blockchain companies depended on advisors and consultants to make their sales and introduction. He cautioned again that companies must choose wisely and not deceived by their smooth talks as many of them do not have any real experience in the tech field and have not gotten deep in the blockchain space.

Last but not least, he told all to be “Pragmatic”. Only being real and practical will open up new paths for you.

Anndy Lian’s is known for his advisory work for governments. He plays a pivotal role as the Blockchain Advisor for Asian Productivity Organisation (APO), an intergovernmental organization committed to improving productivity in the Asia-Pacific region.

APO members include Bangladesh, Cambodia, Republic of China, Fiji, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Islamic Republic of Iran, Japan, Republic of Korea, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam.

He is also part of the Gyeongsangbuk-do Blockchain Special Committee, Government of Republic Korea, together with industry experts such as Brock Pierce (Chairman, Bitcoin Foundation) and Alexis Sirkia (Founder of Yellow.com), helping the province to grow using blockchain technologies.

Affiliate Marketing in the Age of Blockchain: Experts Share their Views in Philippines

Affiliate Marketing in the Age of Blockchain: Experts Share their Views in Philippines

Blockchain Experts from China, Philippines and Singapore were lined up at Affiliate Conference & Expo (ACE) to share how the new technology can help affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing meets blockchain at the first ever Affiliate Conference & Expo in Manila from 21 to 22 November 2019 at the Solaire Resort & Casino.

Trust and transparency are the some of the key missing components in affiliate marketing and coincidentally these problems can be addressed with the adoption of blockchain technology.

Anndy Lian from Singapore, book Author of Blockchain Revolution 2030 and an inter-governmental blockchain advisor gave an individual presentation on what are the vital elements needed for an affiliate marketing scheme to work well in today’s society and how blockchain helps to close up the gap. During the presentation, he described his preferred scenarios for blockchain usage for affiliate marketing. He used an incentive token model for advertising that he trialed with BreezeMaxWeb to illustrate how tokens can draw users to click and get profit by verifying the advertisements on the chain. Then using a gamification model by Gaimin to create stickiness. Last but not least using pr companies like Blockcast.cc to push out verified news within an incentivized network to encourage users to participate in the online and offline activities and promotions within the community.

“The above that I have described is something that we have trialed. The current affiliate marketing programs have a bad name and it will remain that way if we don’t bother to change it. They advertise unethically, many small disclaimers and at times the brand owners of the products are no where to be found. By introducing blockchain to their existing model, it gives users more control over the information they are exposed to, the rewards they worked hard for will also be transparent and this gives ease to the users.” Shared Anndy.

A panel comprised of Jenny Zheng- Cofounder of Blockcast.cc, Jake Villanueva- Investment Manager of Y Investments Philippines Inc, Myrtle Anne- Founder of Blockchain Tides and Anndy Lian were assembled. The panel gave candid views during the panel discussion and that started a series of questions & answers from audiences as they want to find out more.

Jake commented that there are a lot of catching up within the Philippines community on blockchain and crypto currencies. “The communities who believe in blockchain have increased a lot. I can feel the excitement and the enthusiasm. But bear in mind, we are not totally ready yet to embrace this technology. There are needs to invest into infrastructures and educated the general public what is blockchain.”

“I agree with Jake totally. Education is very important and that is why we started Blockcast.cc. This is a platform where we share. Bitcoin, speculations and blockchain technologies have to be carefully distinguished. Coming back to the point on the market not being ready, I think the Philippines market has a great advantage over the rest of ASEAN. Just like China, we skipped the era of credit cards and jumped into a new digital economy with the Alipay and WeChatPay. I strongly believe that blockchain payment can do well in this lovely country!” Jenny added.

Myrtle who is the moderator for the panel, concurred with Jenny’s observations too. “Philippines community for blockchain will grow very strong. I have seen cafes that are trying to use bitcoin as a mode of payment. This is a good move and I think they are ahead of the curve. I have also consulted a project in Philippines who is cleverly using the blockchain technology for their health business. Again, this is very heart warming and my efforts to push this technology forward are gaining adoption.”

“As you know, I do give advice to governments and businesses on blockchain. Philippines government will step up to regulate this industry and we will see more updates in 2020. You will see more trading and securities tokens (STO) regulations soon. This will give users, investors and companies more confidence. It will draw in many new adoption into this industry and I am sure Philippines will stand out from this region when the regulations are in place.” Anndy explained further.

ACE 2019 is the go-to Affiliate Marketing event in Asia for the world’s top Affiliates, Digital Marketers, Merchants and eCommerce entrepreneurs gathered under one roof. Participants network with the top successful Super Affiliates, most prominent regional & global field experts & speakers, world’s top global networks, along with top industry investors & advertisers such as Veronica Andrino, CEO/Founder, Adsolve Co; AlnaverBaltazar, CEO/Founder, SevenGrace Marketing; Melissa Francisco, Head of Sales & Business Development SEA, Optimise Media; Carlito Antonio Jao, Social Management Director, McCann Worldgroup Philippines; Prashant Kala, Country Head, ShopBack Philippines; Chris Mangeura, CMO/Head of Marketing and App Product, Mynt (Globe Fintech Innovations, Inc); Rizal Prasetya, Regional Associate Manager, Affiliates at ZALORA Group; Sean Si, CEO/Founder, SEO Hacker; Janette Toral, Founder, Digital Filipino; AnuragVerma, Head of Sales and Partnerships, Zomato Philippines; Tristan de Belloy, Founder & CEO, Quanta Digital; Ces Dimalanta, Founder/Blogger, Manila Millennial; Carlos Castaño,Head of Sales & Business for Stratuscast Philippines, Inc.; DM Varun,Co-Founder and CEO, STORM Learning; Abigail Victorino, Founder and CEO of StyleGenie; Kurt Ebarita,Social Media Manager, Bonsey Jaden Philippine; Elie Odigie, Digital Marketing and eCommerce Senior Manager, AXA Philippines; Sebastien Caudron, Content President AP, GroupM; Stanley Willer, CEO, HoGaming; Weng Rivera, Country Manager (Philippines), Booking.com; Roy Redd, Motivational Speaker, The Redd Group; Francis Simisim, CEO, Social Light Inc.; Bhavesh Parthi, Head of Affiliates, Oppa888; Munmun Nath, Head of Marketing, Moneymax Philippines.

“我们可以看到近期市场热度被重新点燃,投资者也开始重拾对区块链的信心,并有越来越多的传统投资者们也开始加入学习了解代币化模型。我认为,在ICO和IEO时代之后,将会出现新的筹资方式,它更安全更有保障,也对传统投资机构们更加友好。,例如IWO(Initial Wallet Offerings)或ICBO(Initial Community-backed Offerings),我预测此类产品可能会在明年进入市场,这可能会吸引新的传统投资者进入区块链市场,引入有监管的证券化交易所系统,这也将进一步强化市场信心。”亚洲生产力组织(APO)区块链顾问 Anndy Lian 在会上提到。

”Blockchain technology if used in the correct manner will cut waste and reduce fraud in the healthcare industry. The money and resources wasted could be put to better use, creating social impacts for the world. I have spent time in creating supply chain solutions for the pharmaceutical companies to authenticate medical and healthcare products. I hope using the same mindset and technology to also solve fraud and misuse of funds for both the giving and receiving parties. With that, we can minimize wastage, track funds, products and people in a controlled trustful environment, while harnessing the the true meaning of blockchain. I have spoken to Mr Ban and admired his work at the United Nations.
