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. He advises the Secretariat on the latest concepts and applications of blockchain technologies in cybersecurity and IoT network data integrity across smart factories and upskills the Secretariat staff in blockchain technologies as applicable to productivity. 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.

Linfinity CEO Anndy Lian: “Blockchain + Supply Chain + AI” brings a deep trace of the new IoT world

Linfinity CEO Anndy Lian: “Blockchain + Supply Chain + AI” brings a deep trace of the new IoT world

Linfinity CEO Anndy was interviewed by JINSE Finance recently, he suggests that the integration of cutting edge technology instancing blockchain, supply chain and AI will present us a world where the performance of source-tracking+IoT reaches a new high.

 

Anndy Lian was already a shrewd businessman with multiple commercialization success before stepping into the realm of blockchain. His international insights and vision in supply chain industry come from his Singapore-originated commerce company, eight years in Korea and trading experience of more than 30,000 goods. His background also tells him that the supply chain market is long craving for something which helps fix this long existing pain point- a lack of trust.

The emergence of blockchains gives Anndy enough space for imagination, and this distributed structure and traceable technical features seem to have provided the possibility of solving the ‘pain point’ of the traditional supply chain – thus his blockchain journey with Linfinity has officially started.

 

Covering the whole process of commodity production to realize the in-dept tracking

 

To solve the ‘pain point’ of supply chain is to build a credible supply chain ecosystem. Anndy has set 3 main directions for Linfinity.

Tech service: Relying on the past IoT advantage, to integrate the supply chain, blockchain and  artificial intelligence to achieve the core value of technical service.

In-depth commodity source-tracking: From raw materials to warehousing, then to the whole logistics with thorough blockchain coverage, so that traceability with blockchain maximizes the effectiveness of anti-counterfeiting.

Recyclable ecosystem: Use blockchain to track goods in the whole life cycle for better recycling and environmental protection.

 

In such a system, we can understand and verify the details of every node from the source to the terminal only by scanning the code.

 

“Linfinity’s traceability to drugs , cosmetics and tobacco has been relatively mature . Although the two-dimensional codes don’t look much different physically, yet there is no two same codes in the world when blockchain technology is applied. Each is recorded on the chain, which has been greatly improved for traditional anti – counterfeiting, ” says Anndy.

 

Linfinity has already been strategic partnership with eight enterprises, and more companies will be involved. At early July, during the Asian Blockchain Summit held in Taiwan, Linfinity and Taiwan Alishan Group signed a strategic cooperation agreement, which will provide blockchain anti-counterfeiting technology for its cigarette brands and effectively eliminate counterfeits from the market. In August, Linfinity will expand the business to the UK , mainland China , Taiwan area of China, etc ., and Linfinity’s service will be combined with multiple products in different supply chains.

Three in one” makes the idea of blockchain plus IoT more realistic

 

At present, there are many companies in the blockchain+IoT field, but due to the disconnection between technology and industry, many people think that moving such a large IoT into the blockchain seems to be somewhat “emptiness”.And Anndy who takes “blockchain + supply chain + AI” as a pragmatic key, is convinced that the current practice is moving towards the initial goal:

 

“I never doubt the value of the IoT+ blockchain. Nowadays, companies of all sizes have not really understood how IoT can promote their business.In other parts, perhaps because there is not a broad perspective or there is not enough money to put the idea of blockchain + IoT into practice, I think this is why some people think that IoT is not reliable.”

 

Anndy believes that people can’t work alone if they hope IoT can play great potential under the blockchain. Many people say that they don’t believe in IoT, but in Linfinity’s philosophy, IoT should have a clear direction in the future, and AI+ blockchain is the realistic solution proposed by Linfinity for IoT.

 

“This combination can greatly increase the frequency and production capacity of IoT, and the entire market can improve efficiency while maintaining sufficient transparency”.Anndy also pointed out that the current efforts of Linifinity are to cultivate the starting industry , he believe that after one year, more applications will be landing.

 

How to promote the Linfinity business, manufacturer is one of the breakthroughs.Anndy makes more manufacturers understand the great value of blockchain in traceability,then show the company’s overall concept and overall strength, lets the manufacturers drive consumers to participate in the use of Linfinity.

 

The role of issuing Tokens is first to establish ecology, not ” playing with capital”.

Linfinity made it clear from the beginning that it would not do any ICO projects.

 

“LFT Tokens are not for sale. If you issue 70% of Tokens to the market, you can’t control the value. There are definitely a lot of people going to speculate. The role of Tokens must be to provide a reasonable stimulus for the construction of ecology, and we still have to focus on industry, so the control of Tokens is stricter. We just made a Token-based economic model, and our fans can get Token rewards by scanning the code using the Linfinity system.”

 

Anndy believes that Token is a “binder” that binds the interests of manufacturers and consumers tightly to achieve a win-win situation. For the cooperation with the manufacturers, Anndy has generously presented Tokens, which aims to let the company do several rounds of experiments in the environment of Linfinity to verify and improve the whole system.

 

At present, Linifinity has a team of more than 60 people all over the world. They have targeted the development of markets in various countries and regions, covering different types of goods such as food, medicine, tobacco and coffee. With more and more landing scenes, Anndy is very confident about the value of Tokens.

 

“Because we are directly facing the enterprise, only when the value of Tokens is increased, it is possible to further stimulate the enthusiasm of the manufacturer to use the system. Therefore, in order to make the LFT such an Untility Token really work, we should also be cautious about the Token’s value.”

Anndy tries to convey the long-term value of the blockchain to people, and will continue to work to change the existing industries with blockchain, solve the pain points and achieve a win-win situation.

Linfinity Transforms Total Supply Chain With Distributed Ledger Technology At The Taiwan Asia Blockchain Summit

Linfinity Transforms Total Supply Chain With Distributed Ledger Technology At The Taiwan Asia Blockchain Summit

Linfinity attended the 2018 Asia Blockchain Summit (ABS) in Taiwan on 2-3 July 2018.

The conference attracted more than 8000 blockchain enthusiasts, professionals and also political representatives from the region.  Linfinity CEO Mr Anndy Lian, together with other industry experts were invited to the summit to discuss about how to use distributed ledger technology to transform the industry.

“Consumers want to know the source and how safe are the products, and there is still a lot of room for improvement in the market. There are many segments on the supply chain and they use different systems. Sharing of information and integration of data is still not readily available for the consumer to make a known decision. Companies suffer huge damages to their image and bottomline due to the proliferation of counterfeit goods.” Anndy said in the discussion, “Blockchain is a technology that can change the world, we just need to work together with the current businesses to make it better and more practical.

Anndy has also mentioned that it will take time for businesses and consumers to understand this new technology. It will also take some time for traditional businesses to gain trust in this technology and implement it. . In order to let businesses understand more, Linfinity adopts a simpler manner to explain about the technology and how it can solve the pain points for their business. Linfinity has therefore always focused on commercial implementation and has signed strategic cooperation agreements with many companies in traditional industries. I believe more and more enterprises will join us and work together to make the industry and even our society a better place.

ALB’s What You Missed: The Week of June 4

In this week’s news roundup, we look at a Singaporean firm exploring blockchain technology, an international firm focusing on its associates, and a new plea bargain system in Japan.

SINGAPORE’S RHT TO EXPLORE BLOCKCHAIN TECH FOR SUPPLY CHAIN

Singapore law firm RHTLaw Taylor Wessing and professional services firm RHT Holdings have signed an MoU to jointly explore blockchain technology with Linfinity, the world’s first distributed supply chain platform based on blockchain, Internet of Things, and Big Data.

The two organisations are set to share their legal, compliance and professional services expertise with Linfinity with the aim of tackling issues such as transparency and inefficiencies within the supply chain industry through blockchain technology.

REED SMITH LAUNCHES REDESIGNED ASSOCIATE LIFE INITIATIVE

Reed Smith has launched a redesigned Associate Life initiative – a programme to prepare the firm’s early career lawyers for advancement, leadership roles, and long-term professional success. Among new features are a mobile app for ongoing performance feedback from more senior lawyers; an enhanced billable-hours “credit” policy for learning and development and for pro bono and innovation projects; a ramp-up hours policy following return from leaves of absence; and secondment opportunities within the Reed Smith global platform.

Reed Smith has also announced the roll-out of its 2018 Innovation Hours program, which recognizes up to 50 innovation hours towards billable-hour targets for fee earners. This follows a pilot that saw attorneys across the firm devoting hundreds of innovation hours to six projects last year.

JAPAN INTRODUCES PLEA BARGAINING SYSTEM FOR ORGANISED CRIME, BRIBERY CASES

Last week, Japan introduced a plea-bargaining system for organized crime and bribery cases, according to reports in local media. Under the system, prosecutors can now agree not to indict or to pursue lesser charges or lighter penalties if suspects or defendants provide evidence or depositions against alleged accomplices.

However, under the Japanese system defendants will not be rewarded with reduced sentences for pleading guilty, unlike plea bargaining in, for example, the United States. There are also concerns the new practice could encourage suspects or defendants to make false statements that lead to lapses in justice.

UK LAW FIRM KNIGHTS AIMING FOR LARGEST-EVER LAW FIRM FLOTATION

Knights, a UK law firm, is set to become the fifth law firm to list on the London Stock Exchange – and potentially the largest law firm flotation so far. The IPO is expected to value the business in excess of 100 million pounds ($133 million), outstripping Gateley, the first English firm to go public in 2015, which was valued at 100 million pounds when it floated.

The firm is expected to use the proceeds of the IPO to pay down its debt, for working capital and to provide a future financing option to back its expansion. The other three law firms to list on the LSE are Rosenblatt, Keystone and Gordon Dadds.
