Panel Discussion: How to survive and strive in Web3?

Panel Discussion: How to survive and strive in Web3?

Web3 refers to the third generation of the World Wide Web, which focuses on decentralized technologies such as blockchain and peer-to-peer networks. Web3 technologies have the potential to disrupt traditional centralized models and enable greater user control, privacy, and security.

There are a few reasons why Web3 is gaining popularity:

Decentralization: Web3 technologies are decentralized, meaning they are not controlled by a single entity or organization. This can give users greater control over their data and assets and reduce the risk of censorship or interference.

Security: Web3 technologies are designed to be more secure than their centralized counterparts. For example, blockchain networks are secured through cryptographic techniques, making them resistant to tampering and fraud.

Privacy: Web3 technologies can help preserve user privacy by allowing individuals to control their own data and assets rather than relying on a third party.

Interoperability: Web3 technologies are designed to be interoperable, meaning they can work together and exchange data seamlessly. This can enable the development of new and innovative applications and services.

The popularity of Web3 technologies is driven by the potential for greater control, security, privacy, and interoperability in the digital world.

But does the wider audience in the crypto space think the same? How do we survive and strive in the Web3 environment? This topic is covered by a panel of experts at Twitter Spaces on 30th Dec 2022 at 21:00 SGT.

– Grace, CMO of TwitterScan
– Jenny Zheng, BD Lead of Bybit NFT (https://www.bybit.com)
– Yoka, Secretary General of ABGA

In conclusion, here are a few tips that might help you survive and thrive in the Web3 ecosystem:

Keep learning: The Web3 ecosystem is constantly evolving, so it’s important to stay up-to-date on the latest developments. This can be done through online courses, attending conferences, and following industry leaders on social media.

Network: The Web3 ecosystem is still small and tight-knit, so networking with other professionals can be incredibly valuable. Join online communities, attend meetups, and participate in hackathons to meet others in the industry.

Focus on a specific area: While it’s important to have a broad understanding of the Web3 ecosystem, it can also be helpful to focus on a specific area and become an expert in that field. This could be a particular protocol, platform, or application.

Experiment: The Web3 ecosystem is still in its early stages, so there is much room for experimentation and innovation. Don’t be afraid to try new ideas and approaches, and be open to learning from your failures.

Stay positive: The Web3 ecosystem is full of challenges and setbacks, so staying positive and maintaining a growth mindset is essential. Keep an open mind and remain resilient, and you’ll be well-equipped to handle whatever comes your way.

Awesome Gang: Interview With Author Anndy Lian

Awesome Gang: Interview With Author Anndy Lian

Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My name is Anndy Lian. I have provided advisory across a variety of industries for local, international, public listed companies and governments. I am an early blockchain adopter and experienced serial entrepreneur, book author, investor, board member and keynote speaker. I have written two books. The first was “Blockchain Revolution 2030”. The second is “NFT: From Zero to Hero”.

What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
NFT: From Zero to Hero is my latest book. Zero to Hero is a call to anyone and everyone excited about the prospect of the world of NFT. Bound by imagination only, the NFT space is still in its early days, and early adopters can be a “heroes” in their search for new possibilities.

Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I like to walk around during the brainstorming periods. And usually lying on the bed when writing.

What authors, or books have influenced you?
Books about Lee Kuan Yew, the founding father of Singapore, influenced me the most. For example, “The Singapore Story: Memoirs of Lee Kuan Yew” is a book about his personal and political life and provides a blow-by-blow chronicle of his dealings with political groups and leaders, both Malaysian and international, on the road to independence.

What are you working on now?
Currently, I am appointed as the Chief Digital Advisor at Mongolia Productivity Organization, championing national digitization. I am still working on good investments on the side. I still hope to contribute my knowledge and expertise to a good crypto company in the near future.

What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I do believe being active on social media will help. Of course, having a community that believes in you helps much too. Community-driven, word-of-mouth promotion works the best.

Do you have any advice for new authors?
New authors should look at publishing their books in new formats like NFT or on Web3 platforms too. Trying something new can bring you surprises too.

What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Focus more on the present — Don’t regret the past and don’t be anxious about the future. Appreciate what is happening right now.

What are you reading now?
I am reading “Steve Jobs” by Walter Isaacson right now.

What’s next for you as a writer?
I am working on a picture book and another on cryptocurrency trading strategies.

If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
The Universe in a Single Atom: The Convergence of Science and Spirituality by Dalai Lama would be the book. I always wanted to complete this book but did not find the time to finish it.

Adding to the stranded island list would be Proof Of Stake: The Making of Ethereum and the Philosophy of Blockchains Paperback by Vitalik Buterin and The Mamba Mentality: How I Play Hardcover by Kobe Bryant.

Bitcoin Has Died Nearly 500 Times as Bear Market Bottom Signals End of Crypto

Bitcoin Has Died Nearly 500 Times as Bear Market Bottom Signals End of Crypto
  • Bitcoin has been declared dead 465+ times from 2010
  • Over 124 articles claimed crypto was dead in 2017.
  • The first such claim was made in 2010 by the Underground Economist when Bitcoin was trading at $0.23.

Renowned Indian Author Chetan Bhagat wrote a column declaring that crypto is dead. Is it the sign at the bottom?

The article from the well-known author Chetan Bhagat focuses on how crypto is dead due to the collapse of FTX. He expressed his strong anti-crypto opinion stating that crypto is like communism which promises decentralization but ultimately leads to power in the hands of a select few.

Bitcoin declared dead 465 times.

Bitcoin has been declared dead 465+ times, according to a page in 99Bitcoins, that counts the total reported Bitcoin obituaries. The Underground Economist made the first such report with the title, “Why Bitcoin can’t be a currency,” when the price of Bitcoin was $0.23. The article is no longer live today.

Satoshi Stacker, a well-known crypto analyst, predicted that as more and more people hear about the damage caused by FTX, there will be more reporting on “Crypto is Dead.”

Is the bottom in?

The crypto community believes that such articles are a signal for the bottom. Usually, during the market bottom, the FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt) is at its peak. The frequency of articles claiming the death of crypto increases. The chart below shows that most articles with bearish sentiment were written when the market was preparing for a rally in Nov 2013.

Similarly, 93 obituaries were reported when the market bottomed in 2018. In 2020 various reports claimed Bitcoin was worthless, dead, and rat poison. The exception to this was in 2017 when over 124 articles were written declaring crypto dead due to multiple bans on crypto exchanges, Initial Coin Offering (ICOs) in China.
