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.

“Let’s Defy to DeFi”: Anndy Lian, Crypto Thought Leader Shares Insights with Blockreview.net

“Let’s Defy to DeFi”: Anndy Lian, Crypto Thought Leader Shares Insights with Blockreview.net

By now, we have all heard about cryptocurrencies. It is a digital currency that is secured by cryptography. Many cryptocurrencies are decentralized networks based on blockchain technology. A new spin-off from the decentralized economy is called “decentralized finance” or commonly known as DeFi. 

Basically, DeFi leverages decentralised networks to transform old financial products into trustless and transparent protocols. DeFi lending & borrowing platforms allow their users to supply and lock their funds into smart contracts from there other users can borrow and pay interest. Smart contracts make all these possible, allowing automated and open finance to transact with a bank in the middle. 

This “trustless” model has its pros and cons. 

Anndy Lian will share his views on Defi. He is an early adopter & thought leader in cryptocurrency and blockchain and currently the Advisory Board of Hyundai DAC, the blockchain arm of the South Korean carmaker. 

 

1. In your own words, give us an overview of what is DeFi?

DeFi is “Decentralized Finance”. This term has been the talking point at the start of 2020 and it has grown to a market cap of $15 billion according to Coin Gecko. In very simple terms, DeFi is a combination of traditional finance and decentralised technologies. 

It is poised to be the start of a new financial era where it aims to be self-managing and is open to everyone who wants to be on it. It does not require everyday users to place trust in it, unlike the traditional financial system where the trust is placed on the bank to take care of the money deposited and the government to maintain the monetary value. 

 

2. Recently, the supply of wrapped bitcoin has increased significantly. To what extent do you think Bitcoin (and bitcoin holders) in particular are driving the growth of DeFi? Are they a major part of DeFi’s growth?

Big whales are always more careful with their money, they normally hold only BTC, early on if they want to participate in the liquidity mining they have to deposit their BTC to ETH and other Ming tokens to participate which most of them think it’s risky. Yes, I think the use of WBTC pair mining will boom the Defi market in certain extend.

According to the data released today(the 2nd day of Uniswap Liquidity Mining), 50% of the miners used WBTC/ETH pair in the initial mining, and most of them are big whales.

The DeFi market is no longer the same market we see in 2019 or early this year before small investors can make a big profit in the market, now as the APY drops and gas increases, it favours the whales more. And small investors are forced into the secondary market.

The good thing about this is the market/volume grows, the bad thing is the DeFi is not that DeFi any more.

 

3. Conversely, are the opportunities provided by DeFi encouraging people to invest more in bitcoin?

Sure it will.

Firstly, as I mentioned before, now the DeFi market favours the whales more, small investors can not even make their ends meet after paying skyrocketed gas fees. So they are forced out from the DeFi mining game and move to the secondary market. As we all know trading Waited for 7 hours, nothing is done.tokens on the secondary market is very risky so many might just trim back to bitcoin(cause bitcoin price will also rise if more WBTC mining pools opens).

Secondly, as big whales they will keep on selling whatever coins they mined and swap them to bitcoin.

Thirdly, as the market as a whole, more and more bitcoins will be locked up which will bring another bull market for bitcoin.

However, all of these above happens only when WBTC liquidity mining succeed. So far we can see Uniswap locked up 750 million dollars on their second day of liquidity of which half is from WBTC/ETH pool, but we can also hear many complain of the market that the APY is much lower than before(compared to Sushiswap, Moonswap or Sakeswap). It’s only the beginning let’s go forward and see what’s gonna happen.

 

4. What, in your view, would happen to DeFi if the price of bitcoin crashed significantly/collapsed? Would DeFi struggle to grow or survive? And what would happen to Bitcoin if DeFi collapsed?

Most of the “Value” coins will go zero if the price of bitcoin crashed significantly/collapsed. One thing is for sure: no coin(maybe tiny shit coins can) can survive if bitcoin collapse. Even 10 years later the Blockchain industry is gone bitcoin is here to stay.

Well, Bitcoin is still bitcoin whatever DeFi live or die, just like the universe will still be there non matter the earth exploded or not.

 

5. Do you see DeFi and Bitcoin becoming more or less interrelated in the future? In what ways might their relationship change?

Defi could go big or disappear but Bitcoin is here to stay. There are no doubts about this. But I do hope to see new players coming into the challenge bitcoin supremacy. With challenges, there are improvements. This is what’s lacking in today crypto space.

 

Meanwhile, “Let’s Defy to DeFi”– Defy current financial norms to embrace the new DeFi economy.
