Anndy Lian评论“后币安时代下Coinmarketcap的全新评价体系”

Blockcast.cc:大家好,欢迎来到Blockcast.cc的区块链行业专访。我们每周都会链接加密货币和区块链行业专家,给您带来最新最独到的行业解析。今天对话的是我们的老朋友Anndy Lian,他是政府间区块链顾问,知名畅销书作者以及行业媒体评论家,并且在东南亚,日本,韩国以及最近在斯里兰卡都非常活跃。距离我们上一次的专访已经有一段时间了,很高兴再次邀请他来做客。

你好,Anndy,很高兴与你连线。我是Blockcast.cc的记者John

我看到您近期在Cointelegraph的文章中发表了关于Coinmarketcap最新交易所排名的评论, 这个事件近期确实广受关注且备受争议,您的观点很犀利,所以我们希望跟您进行进一步的访谈,就Binance对Coinmarketcap的影响方面听听您更多的看法。

首先,您认为交易所和排名平台上的数据总体上是否准确且值得信赖?

Anndy Lian:你好John,很高兴认识你,谢谢你的来电。

首先,我们都有个共识就是交易所所公示的数据并不完全真实地反应它的真实情况,因为如果数据都没有水分的话,那比特币的市值将应该达到一万亿美元(只是说)了才对。目前各个平台都有自己的排名权重分配和评判标准,主要是基于交易量,但这还不够准确,因为交易量可以刷,这也就是为什么CoinMarketcap会采取全新的评价标准的原因。就出发点来说,我认为是可以理解的。

 

Blockcast.cc:话虽如此,您认为网站流量是取代交易量的最好指标吗?你个人认为对交易所进行排名最有效最可信赖的方法是什么?

 Anndy Lian:我认为CoinMarketcap将交易所的网站流量纳入排名的评价体系是一个很好的尝试,但是正如我公开评论的那样,仅仅是这样还不够好,不够客观公平。CZ在Twitter上也提到了,他说此次仅仅是个开始。

话虽这么说,但其实就排名标准而言没有一种所谓的最有效的方法,也不存在一种最公平合适的指标,只有不同标准下的不同结果。交易量可以刷,网站流量也一样,即使是添加了诸如不重复访客数,跳出率,停留时间等变量,也还是可以对其进行操作的。可提高的空间还是很大的,CoinMarketcap可以做的更好。

例如将地理位置因素考虑进来,这只是我个人观点下的一个例子。因为美国和欧洲用户比较习惯与使用web端,所以网站流量的评判标准是很合理的。但是像亚洲市场,特别是中国韩国市场,很多用户都是用app端来进行交易的,这反映在当前交易所排名中,就可以理解为什么拥有更多中国用户的Huobi(排名第18)和OKEx(排名第6)的排名相对比较低了。当然我可能是错的,我只是从第三方的角度来看。

我相信面对此次的市场反应,CoinMarketcap未来一定会对当前的评价方法和权重模型进行修订。首先,交易量还是一个很重要的数据,但是要想办法建立新的模型来尽可能准确地获取真实的交易量,例如去除掉对冲数量。还可以更多地借鉴传统金融市场中的一些做法,以使排名更公平公正,有借鉴意义。

 

Blockcast.cc:交易所收购交易所评级平台是否会影响平台的中立性?

Anndy Lian:老实说,对于交易所而言,拥有一个评级平台并不是个最优的决策,尤其是在行业的早期阶段。如果单纯地从投资角度来看的话,那么无疑Coinmarketcap是一个好的投资标的,但如果从业务角度看的话,质疑和争议无可避免。此次的排名之所以饱受批评,并不是因为大家认为币安实力德不配位,而是质疑CoinMarketcap在被币安收购之后是否还能够维持它的中立性。

对于Binance和Coinmarketcap而言,他们必须不断地继续探索,以确保两家公司之间的独立性。人们将继续猜测并散布更多谣言,但是未来取决于Binance和Coinmarketcap的后续应对策略,让我们继续拭目以待。

 

Blockcast.cc:那币安掌舵Coinmarketcap对行业会有积极的影响吗?

Anndy Lian:对于Binance我一直有持续的关注,我在Twitter上也和CZ互相follow了彼此,因此我也阅读了很多他发的文章和见解。以我粗浅的理解,我认为币安(Binance)收购Coinmarketcap也有它积极的方面。

如果抛开中立性不看,币安和Coinmarketcap都是行业内最头部的机构,强强联手,在信息数据共享和交叉检验方面,会有一加一大于二的效果。不同的背景和立场将能够帮助他们共同成长,并为行业带来全新的发展和机遇。

 

Blockcast.cc:我们注意到您在Twitter上的置顶信息,是关于2020年的愿望清单:1)帮助更多的公司加入Blockchain, 2)启动一个可以帮助区块链社区的新项目, 3)深度参与一个全球top 20的项目, 4)打造一个CMC top 50的新代币。可以就这个部分跟我们分享一下吗?

Anndy Lian:这只是我的一个新年愿望清单,给自己立几个小目标。这些年我一直在做很多不同的尝试,我投资过公司,自己经营过公司,也创立过一些公司,运营过新加坡最古早的智库,也做了很多政府关联的工作,今年我希将更多的精力放在区块链行业,更深入地参与到其中去,利用自己的资源和能力来帮助好的项目或平台发展。也许CZ在看完这篇专访后会雇佣我(笑)。

 

Blockcast.cc:哈哈,您还有其他update要与我们的读者分享吗?

Anndy Lian:近期我受邀担任了瑞士DECENT基金会(亚洲)主席。很遗憾由于COVID19,我尚未访问他们的技术开发中心。DECENT成立于2015年,拥有成熟的技术和商业模式,我很期待将它引入亚洲,介绍给更多的行业伙伴。

最后希望COVID19疫情可以尽快得到控制,愿我们Blockcast.cc的读者们都保持健康。

 

Blockcast.cc:谢谢Anndy抽出宝贵时间接受我们的专访,希望很快能在首尔见到你。如果要与Anndy Lian互动,可以通过访问www.anndy.com或访问他的Twitter: https://twitter.com/anndylian

Commentaries by Anndy Lian “New Global Standards Come with the Marriage of Binance & Coinmarketcap”

Commentaries by Anndy Lian “New Global Standards Come with the Marriage of Binance & Coinmarketcap”

Blockcast: We are doing interview sessions with crypto and blockchain people weekly and it has been quite a while since we speak to Anndy Lian. He is still an intergovernmental blockchain advisor and is very active in South East Asia, Japan, South Korea and most recently in Sri Lanka.

So today, we have Anndy on the call with us. Hi Anndy, it is good catching up with you. We have not met face to face yet, my name is John, the newest member at Blockcast.cc.

We have seen your comments on a Cointelegraph article. Blockcast and a few other Korea based media companies would hope to find out more of your views on Binance’s influence over Coinmarketcap.

In your view, are the data on exchanges and ranking platforms accurate and trustworthy in general?

Anndy Lian: Thanks John for the call.

The data that is tabulated by the exchanges are certainly not the correct value. If they are accurate, bitcoin would have a trillion market cap next week (Just saying). But as of now, these data are what the industry can make do with. Many ranking platforms have their way to tabulate the scoring, mostly are based on volume. This is not good enough, that is why CoinMarketcap came up with a slightly different weightage to test it out.

Blockcast: Having said so, what is then the most effective and trustworthy methodology for ranking exchanges? Do you think web traffic is enough?

Anndy Lian: I think what CZ and CoinMarketcap did with the input of web traffic might be a good starting point but as I commented openly, this is not good enough. CZ also mentioned on Twitter that this is just the beginning.

Having said so, there is no one most effective methodology, there will still be grey area for example when the metric was purely based on volume, the volume can be manipulated. When the web traffic is introduced, with added variables like unique visitors, unique mac address, IP, etc, this can also be manipulated. So there isn’t one metric fit all approach when ranking is concerned.

There must also be a component to score based on geographical locations too. Just quoting an example based on my own opinion. The web-based model works well for the USA and European users’ market. This is reflected on the current top 100 exchanges where you see Huobi (Ranked 18th) and Okex (Ranked 6th) who have more Chinese users technically are ranked much lower. Chinese users, in particular, are doing more trading and monitoring through apps and not web. Therefore, incorporating app or API traffic could be another add on. I could be wrong, I am just looking at this from a third-party standpoint.

To be effective, there must be a revision of the current methodology and weightage model. Firstly, the actual trading volume must be as accurate as possible, the numbers must not be washed and for this to happen, mechanisms such as taxable trade should come into the picture to beef up the indexes and create a level 1 trustworthiness for both the exchanges and retail/ professional investors. We should also adopt some of the practices that are done in the financial exchanges so to make the ranks meaningful.

Blockcast: Is an exchange rating platform being owned by an exchange an inherent conflict of interest?

Anndy Lian: To be honest, it is not ideal for an exchange to own an exchange rating platform especially in the early stages of this industry.

Take Binance for exchange, people will start to gossip that Binance is on top of the charts because they are the owners. But is this true, we are not sure.

But I believe it can be done too with proper compliance and governance and also arm length relationship would be good enough too for Binance and Coinmarketcap. They have to properly address this to all the stakeholders constantly so to assure them of the independence between the 2 companies. They can also look at having all the data stored in a decentralised platform to ensure data integrity. All the little bit helps.
People will continue to speculate and spread more rumours especially when the number 1 exchange bought the number rating platform. If you look at this from a business perspective, if you can buy the best company, of course, you will buy the best in the basket. But the future lies in how Binance and Coinmarketcap manage the governance and compliance aspects of things. This is the key.

Blockcast: What are the possible upsides for the industry with Binance at the helm of Coinmarketcap?

Anndy Lian: For Binance, I have been following CZ on Twitter for a long while. He has followed me too. So I have read many of his posts and chain of thoughts. With this as the background, I think for Binance to take the helm, it has more positives than negatives in my opinion.

They will help to set a new standard on how all the crypto companies and exchanges are ranked. I believe they will also try to have stricter criteria for companies to be listed, they can also set the standard and start to execute them on Binance using their platform for trial and error.

New standards such as companies must submit details of the top 3 personnel of the company, they should be declaring their income, background etc and be digitally proven documents on-chain etc. While these are just my wishful thinking, I believe strongly only the leaders on the very top of this industry can put together new standards. We will all see new global standards with the marriage of Binance & Coinmarketcap

Blockcast: We noted your pinned message on Twitter. My wish list for this year: 1) Help more companies to go into #Blockchain 2) Start a new project that can help the blockchain community 3) Become part of a top 20 token 4) Make a token to become top 50 on CMC. What is this about?

Anndy Lian: This is just my wish list. As you know, I invest in companies, run companies myself, founded a few companies, run Singapore oldest think tank and even done many things for the governments. But I have not gotten myself involved in top crypto companies, as in working for them.

I want to work for the top blockchain companies. I want to use my strengths to help the top maintain their status as the top or for them to move a few levels up. Maybe CZ can hire me after reading this interview (laughs).

Blockcast: I believe companies are already eyeing your talents. Do you have any other things to share with our readers?

Anndy Lian: Recently, I am also being appointed at the Chairman (Asia) for DECENT Foundation based in Switzerland. I have not visited their tech development centre yet due to COVID19 but I am very impressed with their work done on an enterprise level for the blockchain industry. Plus they have been around since 2015, which means they are mature in their business model. I hope to introduce them to some of my blockchain friends and bring them to Asia.

The COVID19 situation has not been very kind to everyone, I hope the virus can be controlled as soon as possible so to let all businesses go back to their usual operations.

This virus has also brought in some positives to the current business situation. Companies who did not believe in technology implementation are now looking at digitalising their records and sales online. And companies, who are already more tech-savvy, are exploring how to incorporate new tech like blockchain to their existing infrastructures.
This is just the beginning of a new tech era and I am very sure that blockchain and cryptocurrency have earned their position in this evolution.

Blockcast: Thank you Anndy for your time. I hope to see you in Seoul soon. If you want to interact with Anndy Lian, you can do so by visiting www.anndy.com or at his Twitter handle https://twitter.com/anndylian.

Anndy Lian Shares His Views with Cointelegraph: Crypto Exchanges Speak Out as Binance Takes CoinMarketCap’s Top Spot

Anndy Lian Shares His Views with Cointelegraph: Crypto Exchanges Speak Out as Binance Takes CoinMarketCap’s Top Spot

Always happy to share my thoughts with my media friends and people in the business. This time round I have the chance to speak to Joseph Birch where I gave him my comments on how I felt about the Binance taking CoinMarketCap’s top spot. The is the part of what I have told him.

Anndy Lian — a blockchain advisor, investor and prolific Twitter commentator — told Cointelegraph that while an exchange owning a rating platform is far from perfect, there are potential benefits to be had if good corporate governance and firm regulations are in place:

“Take Binance for example, people will start to gossip that Binance is on top of the charts because they are the owners. But is this true, we are not sure. I believe as well, if there are proper compliance and governance and also arm length relationship would be good enough too for this example for Binance and Coinmarketcap. They have to properly address this to all the stakeholders to assure them of the independence between the 2 companies. They can also look at having all the data is stored in a decentralised platform to ensure data integrity.”
