OpenStream World Added New Backers: Angel Investor, Anndy Lian is One of them

OpenStream World Added New Backers: Angel Investor, Anndy Lian is One of them

Hanoi, 4th Jan 2022, ZEXPRWIREAnndy Lian has invested in startup tech company, OpenStream World (OSW), joining the other backers and partners into their ecosystem to help their business grow. MG Ventures, Crypto Pros, Crypto Xenos and Blockcast.cc were the newly added partners. Anndy Lian, a blockchain thought leader and investor based in Singapore has also formally announced that he has angel invested into the company at this early stage. There will be other investors annouced in the later stages.

“The journey to building our ecosystem is not easy. I am delighted to have early backers and partners involved in our startup at this current moment. We will continue to invite more partners to join our ecosystem so to build our platform in the right direction for the global target audiences.” Y Tran, Co-Founder and COO of OpenStream World said.

“The OSW founders took a different approach to share their ideas with me. They first helped to manage our Discord servers for BigONE Exchange and Asia Blockchain Community. Then they showed us how their technology is useful in the various social media. Their selling points become very obvious after showcasing to us live. This is also one of the reasons why I have decided to be their angel investor.” Anndy Lian commented.

Anndy Lian is known in the space as an early adopter and has given advice to various governments. He is currently the Chairman for Asia at BigONE Exchange and Chief Digital Advisor at Mongolia’s national productivity statutory board. He is also a book author, keynote speaker and investor.

OpenStream World is a decentralized video streaming network; built to enable scalable, easy to host, interactive online events. Tran added: “Over the past few years, the world has seen a proliferation of smartphone users, which has dramatically changed the way we produce and consume digital content. People have taken up the role of content “producer”, from recording/live streaming events, such as concerts and film festivals, to video blogs, e.g., travel, tutorial, product review, and live gaming video streaming.

Limited by the shortcomings of traditional platforms, which fail to reward the content creator and viewers adequately, we have seen in recent years the rise of platforms that reward content producers and in some cases also the viewers, leading to a win-win environment for both content producer and viewer. One of the much-anticipated use cases for blockchain-based video streaming platforms is indeed in the domain of live streaming and gaming/eSports.

Some of the major prospective advantages offered by blockchain-based video streaming applications include empowering creators and artists, blockchain-based CDNs, privacy and piracy protection, and energy-saving. Partnerships are very important at this stage of the business. We appreciate all the support we can get.”

OSW is a system that includes many products related to streaming technology and video streaming networks. The core components include:

  1. OpenStream Core: this is a platform built on blockchain, providing livestream services under the IAAS model (Infrastructure As A Service – Providing hardware infrastructure as a service).  All other products in the ecosystem will use the livestream technology from this Core set.
  2. Stream Node Forger: provides hardware resources for OpenStream Core, needs a network of Nodes from all over the world: install programs, implement transcoding algorithms for live streams. In return, the owners of the Nodes will be rewarded with tokens from the project.
  3. OpenStream Apps: This is a live streaming application that inherits the infrastructure from OpenStream Core and develops the main functions to create interaction between the livestreamer and the viewer.  In addition, you can share videos to other platforms at the same time
  4. NFT Marketplace: more than an exchange of NFT products, this is where digital product owners can promote their products.
  5. IOSO (Initial Open Stream Offering): this is a new funding mechanism for blockchain projects, it inherits some properties of the IndieGoGo fundraising platform and limits the negatives in other forms of fundraising (ICO such as ICO, etc.).

Openstream World is developed by a team with rich experience in both technology and Blockchain. They have more than 3 years of experiences in developing projects related to livestreaming and the blockchain payment mechanism, serving hundreds of thousands of users. In addition, they have members who have managed large projects such as Safemoon, and Yooshi. To date, they have more than 100,000 community members. The company is led by Founder and CTO Khoa Trinh, a graduate from HCMC University of Technology with a Bachelor degree in Computer Science and was working for LienViet Post Bank before starting OpenStream World and Co-Founder Y Tran who held many important positions such as Business Analyst, Project Manager in domestic and foreign companies.

OpenStream World will continue to work towards its goal to grow its footprints in the international markets with its decentralized technologies.

Anndy Lian, Metaverse, and Cryptocurrency: The Nitty Gritty – An Interview with Stashaway

Anndy Lian, Metaverse, and Cryptocurrency: The Nitty Gritty – An Interview with Stashaway

Metaverse has been talk of the town ever since Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg rebranded Facebook into Meta and shared with the world his aspirations and goals in this “metaverse”. But what exactly is metaverse? What does the future hold for us?

Anndy Lian, Chairman of BigONE Exchange gets into the nitty gritty of metaverse with Stashaway,  an intelligent wealth management platform run by roboadvisors.

Metaverse, much like NFTs, is not something new in 2021. It has been talked about seriously since 2018 in a book that Anndy wrote – Blockchain Revolution 2030. Dating further back, ‘metaverse’ was known as a ‘virtual world’ and its origins are mostly credited to Author Neal Stephenson’s 1992 dystopic, sci-fi novel Snow Crash, and many see a more recent inspiration in Earnest Cline’s 2011 novel Ready Player One.

“Metaverse,”, says Anndy, “is more like a bridge between the virtual world and the real world.”. It is speculated that everything that can be done in the real world can be mimicked and reproduced in the metaverse – and maybe even more. It is not as minuscule as having meetings, or creating a cute profile or meme in the metaverse. Imagine what you can do in real life – work, earn your keep, enjoy entertainment – these are what the metaverse promises.

There is a hype around metaverse right now and with the help of Facebook and a few other big companies, people are looking at tech stocks and good crypto companies to invest in. It’s only been a couple of months since the topic of metaverse surfaced and many may argue that it is too early to start investing or paying attention to the market. One concern is that users who are into the metaverse are buying land – digital land – and keeping them. It is of no surprise that they will must have been quite hefty. “It may look like an investment now but you are really just gambling because there is no clear indication right now which metaverse is going to be the next big thing. There are a lot of things to uncover and discover,”, Anndy explains.

The media features news that are trending and people often just listen to them without doing their own research. It is imperative that these people understand that we are only in the beginning phase of metaverse. Taking Google and Yahoo as an example, in the past, everyone thought that Yahoo would be the biggest leader in search engine, but despite both of them being billion-dollar companies, Google clearly has the biggest advantage right now. “Whoever is the leader now may not be the leader at the end,”, emphasises Anndy. There a lot of building blocks that we have not seen and as we progress on, we will get a clearer investment perspective and that would be a better time to invest.

Decentraland (MANA) and The Sandbox (SAND) are the two biggest players in the metaverse right now and the competition has extended to its users – much like Apple versus Samsung. In terms of metaverse, Anndy believes that it is good for everyone to work together and unite such that there would be one metaverse for the whole world. “Ideally, I hope everyone can be united and do what’s needed to build the metaverse up,”, says Anndy.

It is a common misconception that the metaverse is all about cryptocurrency. It is without a doubt that cryptocurrency is one of the aspects of metaverse that connects everyone, however, looking at it from a deeper level, there is also a tech aspect. One of which is Web3.0 that will be coming to improve engagement and enhance safety. Apart from cryptocurrency, NFTs are definitely a part of the concept as well. We may have seen virtual galleries showcasing NFT artworks around the world – and this is only the beginning.

Another common misconception of the metaverse is that it is closely interlinked with virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). Due to the portrayal of Ready Player One, many believe that we have to wear headsets or sit in a special chair to experience the metaverse in 5D. Thinking back to a conversation with a friend, Anndy brought up that we are all restricted by our physical bodies where we grow old and sick. “If it continues to be like that, how about connecting our mind into the metaverse?”, questions Anndy. This may not be too far-fetched an idea either. Greg Daniel’s 2020 sci-fi television series Upload portrayed Anndy’s thoughts perfectly. The premise of the series is that humans are able to “upload” themselves into a virtual afterlife of their choosing. Now isn’t it wonderful to be able to live even after death?

In a metaverse, there are a few foundational aspects needed to flourish. First and foremost is the ability to let people earn money. Many games such as Axie Infinity have been released where players can play to earn and this attracted the attention of billions of people. Secondly, is the formation of a strong community. With a community, bigger and more valuable things can be built upon as long as they play their part. The third and final point is that whatever is earned from within the metaverse can be brought out and utilised in the real world. “Great importance should be put on these 3 points. I’ve yet to see the 2nd point happen so I’m really looking forward to it,”, says Anndy.

We certainly hope that adoption of cryptocurrencies will be boosted in 2022 as it is a very good opportunity for things to mature. Due to COVID-19, things will definitely have to open up across borders and across different worlds. “As adoption increases, there’ll be new money and new people. The metaverse will be very very different,”, says Anndy. The metaverse that we all imagine should not be something that is too far away. In Anndy’s words, “Let’s shoutout to Elon Musk; maybe he could help to boost the development of the metaverse.”. Cheers to that!

Metaverse: The Next New Internet Era, Meta Talkz with Anndy Lian

Metaverse: The Next New Internet Era, Meta Talkz with Anndy Lian

Anndy Lian is an early blockchain adopter and experienced serial blockchain entrepreneur who is known for his work in the government sector. Currently, he is appointed as the Chief Digital Advisor at Mongolia Productivity Organization, championing national digitization. He is also the Chairman, Asia for BigONE Exchange. He was formerly an Advisory Board member for a Hyundai subsidiary and Advisor to Asia Productivity Organization.

 

What was your journey like to get where you are?

The journey is great. I have never regretted it a bit. I have experienced the good and bad times for cryptocurrency and blockchain. From times where big companies and governments laugh at my vision to right now demanding advice on how they can buy plots of land on metaverses.

Things have changed so much.

 

In a simpler phrase, what is your company exactly doing?

I am the Chairman of BigONE Exchange. BigONE is a global cryptocurrency exchange that provides a platform for trading various cryptocurrencies. It was founded in 2017 and registered in the Netherlands. The group operates in Russia, Brazil, Vietnam, Seychelles, Singapore, Japan, and Indonesia, providing marketing, investment, and blockchain technology research & development. We are constantly ranked top 30-50 on Coinmarketcap.

 

What about Metaverse are you most excited for in the future?

The ability to overlap and live in both digital and physical lives simultaneously gets me excited for the future. Imagine you can be earning twice as fast if you live in both worlds. Isn’t this what most of us are dreaming about?

Your experience in the metaverse will be greatly enhanced with the introduction of virtual reality (VR) based wearables. Again, imagine traveling the world in the comfort of your home. The VR equipment will be an alternative to your computer screens and will bring the internet to the next level.

 

Why should we be paying attention to the Metaverse?

Innovations like metaverse bring many new opportunities. It is the beginning of a new era within our time. In metaverse, you are not just browsing the web but you are in the web, in another universe.

If you think mobile devices and the internet change our lives. Then metaverse will succeed both of them. If operated in the right manner, it will change the way we interact in the same way that mobile devices have changed society today.

“Embrace the technology. Get ready for the future.”

Meta Universe may be the next new Internet era that will succeed the mobile Internet.
