Anndy Lian: Keynote Speech at Blockchain Summit LatAm 2021

Anndy Lian: Keynote Speech at Blockchain Summit LatAm 2021

Decentralized crypto initiatives and government moves to co-opt crypto show that Latin American is at the crossroads of a revolution in crypto adoption, said Anndy Lian, Chairman of BigONE Exchange, following a successful Blockchain Summit LatAm, which ended on September 10.

“The news that El Salvador has launched Bitcoin as legal tender is encouraging news for the whole region, but such a decentralized currency needs to include education and practical tools for everyday use that are built with its users in mind – principles which are at the heart of our own global exchange,” he added.

The trend towards greater use of cryptocurrency in Latin America is not hard to see. Between 2017 and 2020, the bitcoin volume in Latin America has an average of 6% of the volume of BTC globally. In March 2020, Latin America had a 15.8% share, compared to 6% in the US. In April 2021, the Latin American countries with the highest volume of cryptocurrencies are Colombia, with 45% of bitcoin volume in the region; followed by Peru with 13%; Chile with 12%; Mexico with 11%; and Brazil with 11%.

Another trend is the growing commitment from Latin American governments to advance central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), with the Central Bank of Venezuela launching its CBDC in October. The region’s regulators aren’t uniformly in favor of cryptocurrency, however, so progress its likely to be uneven.

While the LatAm conference was taking place Mauricio Moura, a director of the Central Bank of Brazil, stated that anonymity when using crypto won’t be a choice for users in future, an approach likely to be followed by other Latin American governments. Nevertheless, Visa’s vice president of new business in Brazil stated recently that the company will be testing direct bitcoin payments this year.

The potential of decentralized digital assets to disrupt Latin American markets isn’t going away any time soon however, especially with the global boom in the market for NFTs.  In Latin America culture, where art, design, music, and sports are celebrated, the NFT market is starting to grow, such as Influxo’s Ronaldinho NFT supported by BigONE, which will be launched shortly. Although NFTs are still relatively new to Latin America marketplaces, it’s a part of the revolution in crypto adoption that will only increase in popularity.

Anndy Lian is an early blockchain adopter and experienced serial entrepreneur who is known for his work in the government sector. He is a best selling book author “Blockchain Revolution 2030”. Currently, he is appointed as Chairman, Asia for BigONE Exchange and Chief Digital Advisor, Mongolia Productivity Organisation. Anndy is part of the Gyeongsangbuk-do Blockchain Special Committee, Government of Republic Korea, together with industry experts such as Brock Pierce. Lian played a pivotal role as the Blockchain Advisor for Asian Productivity Organisation (APO), an intergovernmental organization committed to improving productivity in the Asia-Pacific region and was previously the Advisory Board Member of Hyundai DAC Technology.

An avid supporter of incubating start-ups, Anndy has also been a private investor for the past eight years. With a growth investment mindset, Anndy strategically demonstrates this in the companies he chooses to be involved with. He believes that what he is doing through blockchain technology currently will revolutionise and redefine traditional businesses. He also believes that the blockchain industry has to be “redecentralised”.

BigONE Asia Releases Plans for Latin America on the Blockchain Summit Latam

Mr. Anndy Lian, Chairman of BigONE Asia, would be discussing the globalization
plans of BigONE during this summit and how Latin America fits into this
vision.

BLEISWIJK, NETHERLANDS / ACCESSWIRE / July 29, 2021 / The Blockchain Summit
Latam 2021, which will take place from September 6-10, 2021, is one of the
most important blockchain and encrypted asset events held in Latin America
each year. The Blockchain Summit Latam is more than just a conference; it is
an ecosystem that brings together entrepreneurs, developers, companies,
institutions, regulators, and blockchain technology enthusiasts to discuss and
share ideas to build a new Internet of value and trust for teams working on
the advancement of blockchain in Latin America.

Due to the global epidemic, the Blockchain Summit Latam will be held online
this year and live-streamed on YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, and other social
media platforms.

Highlights of the 2021 Blockchain Summit Latam

People would look at the development of blockchain and digital assets so far
in 2021 from compliance and supervision at the summit. Notable events include
the passage into law of a regulation that makes Bitcoin legal tender in El
Salvador, the first of its kind for the blockchain ecosystem.

From the standpoint of user engagement, the emergence of 'Animal or meme
coins' would also be discussed. They have led the trend to promote complete
decentralization of the ecosystem and gain massive traction in cryptocurrency
circles.

During this summit, other milestones achieved in the NFT, DeFi and other
sectors in the ecosystem would be considered in terms of industry
technological advancement. They continue to show progressive growth and set
the path for the future of blockchain.

At this summit, industry leaders and blockchain experts worldwide will look at
these events and discuss issues relating to technological research and
development, innovation, and the cryptocurrency market in domains such as
global regulation, economic impact, DeFi, and other practical applications.

Mr. Anndy Lian, the newly appointed Chairman of BigONE Asia, was specially
invited as a guest speaker during this summit and gave a critical keynote
address on Day 2: The Latin America Ecosystem. Mr. Anndy, a global government
regulations expert with over 15 years of experience, will be discussing
international supervision, the economy, DeFi, and current issues in the Latin
American blockchain ecosystem with other guests. Mr. Anndy also served as the
keynote speaker at the World E-sports and Blockchain Summit, alongside other
notable figures such as former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon.

So far, Latin America has been one of the key regions with the highest rate of
cryptocurrency and digital asset adoption. It is also regarded as one of the
first areas where blockchain technology has been implemented. This
demonstrates a very positive attitude toward blockchain and its underlying use
cases.

Mr. Anndy, Chairman of BigONE Asia, sees Latin America as a critical
international market for BigONE. Accordingly, it seeks to accelerate its
globalization strategy to foster the growth of the cryptocurrency/digital
assets ecosystem.

When asked about the role of Latin America in the future of blockchain
technology and how this region can help facilitate growth, Mr. Anndy said,
'Latin America has shown so far, with their mass adoption of blockchain
technology over the years, that they have a high level of trust in the
potential of blockchain technology as the foundation for the future of the
world, and at BigONE, we believe this is the case and are looking to identify
with key regions like this to foster the growth of cryptocurrencies and to aid
BigONE's globalization.'

Securities.io Interview Series: Anndy Lian, Inter-Government Blockchain advisor & Author

Securities.io Interview Series: Anndy Lian, Inter-Government Blockchain advisor & Author

Anndy Lian provides advisory across a variety of industries for local, international, publicly listed companies and governments. He is an early blockchain adopter and experienced serial entrepreneur, book author, investor, board member and keynote speaker.

Currently, he is appointed as the Advisory Board Member for Hyundai DAC, the blockchain arm of South Korea’s largest car manufacturer Hyundai Motor Group where he looks after the governance and compliance aspects of the business. He is also the Chief Digital Advisor at Mongolia Productivity Organization, championing national digitization.

Anndy 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.

He is the Chairman (Singapore) for Korea eSports Industry Association (KeIA) where he is actively promoting eSports to go mainstream and adopt cryptocurrencies.

When did you initially become interested in blockchain and cryptocurrency?

My interest was in cryptocurrency first and the interest grew tremendously after reading Satoshi Nakamoto’s whitepaper titled Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System back in 2010. We were only using bitcoin as a form of a credit to exchange items online. Maybe for music download, gaming accounts etc.

As for blockchain, it was 2016. As an investor in the health and medical industry, I was invited to a close door discussion with the medical professions and a pharmaceutical company. That was the first time I know how important blockchain is. It helps to fight fake medicines and health products. It can enhance the current search and tracking model if adopted well. My interest for both grew since that point of time.

You’ve spoken to many regulators, what are some of the biggest questions or concerns that they have with DeFi and cryptocurrency?

Their biggest concern for regulators is how to balance innovation and unregulated financial activities. I dare to say all regulators are into blockchain and agree that it can do wonders.

As for unregulated activities like ICOs for instance in 2017, they are concerned that token buyers are scammed and bought into financial products that they do not know much about. This has downstream issues and may lead to more bankruptcies and social unrest. When such issues occur, who will clean up the mess? Binance? Huobi? Gemini? Coinbase? The answer is no. Governments got to step in to help their citizens.

What are some of the biggest industry challenges that you see in DeFi?

Violations of KYC/ AML: Not knowing who is who and where the money is flowing from is one of the main problems for DeFi right now. When such trades occur between unknown parties and if these parties violate any of the regulations, the consequences can be very damaging. Nevertheless, it has improved a lot from the older days.

Liquidity issues: This is still a problem although we see PancakeSwap is doing very well with their volume. There is still clear competition between CEX and DEX. There is also competition between chains on pricing too. When you see the competitions, the liquidity flows is very obvious, some totally withdraw themselves from Chain 1 to Chain 2 because Chain 2 is new and they can get more out of it.

DeFi is very complex to use: The UI and UX have increased a lot. It is still an uphill task for many to follow. Do you know how to activate the expert mode? Why I cannot sell my coins away? Where are my coins? Slippage? Many who read this article will find these problems have happened to them before and newer problems appear day to day too.

What are some cryptocurrencies that currently have piqued your interest?

Bitcoin and the original main cryptocurrencies are still of my interest, although some of them are not doing much for the last 2 years. New cryptocurrencies with innovative tokenomics like Safemoon for example piqued my interest in the recent months. A few other NFT and MEME projects have also gain my attention too.

What’s the most important attribute that you consider when reviewing new cryptocurrencies?

Concept, Marketing, Community, Technology and Business.

These are the 5 things I look at when reviewing new cryptocurrencies. The project must have a good concept and has to solve some issues. With good marketing, it can draw in support from the community at large. Technology will help them with their use cases. Last but not least, it has to have be able to gain revenue.

“Always remember, all hype but no business = failed project.”

You’ve spoken a lot in the past about NFTs, what are your current views on the space?

The NFT space is getting exciting. Recently Twitter has also joined the bandwagon, giving away 140 Ethereum NFT on Rarible. I can see more artists, movie stars, sportsmen, luxury brands, politicians knowing more about crypto because of NFTs.

The flip side is there are not enough users to buy the overwhelming creation on many platforms. Many of the demands you see may not be the real demand. In the next year, we will see the creative folks dropping out and only the toughest can survive.

Nevertheless, this space will grow faster and has not reached its fullest potential yet.

You’re currently the Chairman (Singapore) for the Korea eSports Industry Association (KeIA) where you are actively promoting eSports to go mainstream and adopt cryptocurrencies. How has the gaming community in South Korea reacted to mixing eSports with crypto?

South Korea is both strong in cryptocurrency and esports gaming. I cannot speak for all gamers in South Korea. All I can say that they are the fastest-growing country when it comes to esports + crypto.

More semi-professionals became full-time professionals thanks to the COVID19 situation and also cryptocurrency. The gamers are rewarded with cryptocurrencies instantly after the game. This becomes a revenue stream for them to continue their lives despite lockdown. Win-win situation.

You believe that the blockchain industry needs to be “redecentralised”, could you elaborate on these views?

I started advising governments earlier than most of my peers. Most of my peers think in order for crypto to grow we need to go fully decentralised. No governments, no banks. Of course, they think I am crazy too.

My stand is if we want to grow we need to redefine the word decentralise. If we can “redecentralise” things properly, we can gain acceptance faster. This has aged well with times 🙂

Is there anything else that you would like to share regarding the industry or what’s currently on your mind?

I think all coins must co-exist.

This space must mature with time and not work on groundless price pumps, washed trading or out of this world FUDs.

Let’s work together in the right manner.

Thank you for the great interview, readers who wish to learn more about Anndy and his views should visit the Anndy Lian website.

Chained Together: How Blockchain is Improving Supply Chains

Chained Together: How Blockchain is Improving Supply Chains

Chained Together: How Blockchain is Improving Supply Chains is an online event organized by the Boston Blockchain Association.

Blockchain is radically improving supply chains by making products easier to track, from the raw materials to the finished goods.

Imagine a world where you’ll be able to see not just where your coffee was grown or your iPhone was assembled, but every step in the process, all recorded on a transparent blockchain.

This has huge implications for everything from fair trade and fair wages, to making companies and governments far more efficient.

The Boston Blockchain Association has put together a distinguished panel of supply chain and blockchain experts to give all a state of where the industry stands today, including:

Leanne Kemp, CEO and Founder of Everledger: Perhaps the most well-known blockchain + supply chain project in the world, Everledger started as an immutable ledger for diamond identification and transaction verification — and has grown into a platform for measuring the “value chain” of everything from rare earth metals to designer handbags:
