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.

Knnit Speaks to Anndy Lian, Singapore Blockchain Expert on “The Purpose of 2nd Tier Crypto Exchanges”

Knnit Speaks to Anndy Lian, Singapore Blockchain Expert on “The Purpose of 2nd Tier Crypto Exchanges”

  1. Can you tell us more about yourself?

My name is Anndy Lian. I have been active in the blockchain market since 2017. I had my first bitcoin in early 2010 when they are worth much lesser basically. Right now I spend most of my time advising governments and also acting as the Chairman (Asia) for Decent Foundation based in Switzerland and Chairman (Singapore) for Korean eSports Industry Association. I am also a book author for Blockchain Revolution 2030.

 

  1. In your view, do second-tier crypto-exchanges do enough to differentiate themselves? Do they have unique selling points? What do they offer that bigger exchanges don’t?

Top few exchanges seem to have everything, not much left for the second-tier and small exchanges so they are working/ struggling especially hard, just to survive. The only advantage they have compared to the big brothers is they are too small to be on the radar so they can be more “wild”. You seldom see a coin goes 100X on big exchanges but it’s still happening on second-tier and small exchanges. However small exchanges close down every month so users who like to “gamble” will choose the second-tier exchange over the big ones.

 

  1. What, if anything, can second-tier exchanges do to differentiate themselves? Do you expect such exchanges to succeed in introducing unique features in the future?

Yes, they need to have a new model, their own models, the first in the industry kind of model to succeed. However, new model also means high uncertainty and risk. You do it well you become Bitmex, you do it wrong Fcoin is your example.

 

  1. Does the crypto system really need smaller, second-tier exchanges? What role do they serve, if any?

Yes, smaller, second-tier exchanges are like the catfish in the sardines, more players mean more competition, more competition brings more innovation and better services. Those newcomers they are standing on the shoulders of giants, they can build their exchanges on the most neat and efficient manner, they can try new features more freely, respond and adjust to the market faster.

 

  1. Do you expect to see consolidation in the cryptocurrency exchange sector in the future? How much consolidation?

It’s already happening:

1) Many exchanges are opening their branches abroad, sometimes they do it themselves but more times they collaborate with local exchange partners( eg. OKEx & OKEx Korea).

2) Small/New exchanges are opening/switching their businesses on/to big exchange’s cloud services so they can start easy and cheap, when they grow big they can even get investment from the big exchanges.

3) Big exchanges are also collaborating more and investing in other exchanges eg Binance investing into WazirX India.

 

  1. What other observations do you see in the crypto exchange market?

New crypto exchanges will pop up now and then. Those who inspired to start an exchange will go to companies like ChainUp, HyrdaX, SHIFT etc. Some trends were possibly be revived such as DAPP Gaming Store and Decentralised Exchanges (DEX) in the mid of 2021 too. I am keeping a close lookout on these possibilities. In the nutshell, crypto exchanges are here to stay and here to make more noises for the crypto and blockchain communities.

Baidu: 2020 区块链机遇的新纪元

“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。
