Anndy Lian to speak on Decentralized Finance at Vietnam CFO Forum 2021

Anndy Lian, Chairman, Asia of BigONE Exchange & Chief Digital Advisor to Mongolia Productivity Organisation will be giving a speech on Decentralised Finance (DeFI) at the Vietnam CFO Forum 2021.

Vietnam CFO Forum 2021’s theme is “Insights & Foresights: The Future in the Present Tense.” The forum will be held with many discussion sessions that are both trending and close to the reality of businesses. The latest PwC study has shown that environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria have now become a deciding factor for the world’s top investors. This criterion forces investors and investee companies to redefine risks in traditional business models as well as opportunities that contribute to sustainable value creation in the future. ESG will also be a topic discussed by experts in this year’s Vietnam CFO Forum.

Prominent names from large domestic enterprises can be mentioned such as Mr. Le Thanh Liem – Chief Financial Officer of Vinamilk, Mr. Nguyen Xuan Dai – Finance Director of Sovico Group, Mr. Le Vu Truong Deputy General director of Ernst & Young Vietnam; Mr. Nguyen Hoang Nam – Deputy General Director of PwC Vietnam, Mr. Phan Vu Hoang – Deputy General Director of Deloitte Vietnam, Ms. Chau Nguyen – Chief Representative of ACCA Vietnam, Mr. Yee Chung Seck – Deputy General Director of Baker & McKenzie Vietnam, Mr. Dang The Duc – Managing Partner of Indochine Counsel, Mr. Tim Evans – Managing Director of HSBC Vietnam, Mr. Le Khanh Lam – President of RSM Vietnam.

The international experts attending the discussion in this year’s forum included blockchain expert Anndy Lian – President of BigONE Exchange Asia, Mr. Hiroaki Endo – CEO of investment fund PGIM Japan; Mr. Sharath Martin – ACCA’s professional advisor in ASEAN ANZ, Mr. Nguyen Ngoc Bach – Chairman of AsiaInvest Group and CFO Vietnam.

CFO Vietnam Forum 2021 is an event for leaders and financial professionals organized by CFO Vietnam in collaboration with ACCA Vietnam and the International Association of Senior Financial Executives (IAFEI). This year’s event, held online via ZoomEvents, is expected to have the participation of more than 300 business leaders and 400 CFO members of the International Association of Senior Financial Executives (IAFEI).

Dự báo và hoạch định tương lai cho bài toán tài chính doanh nghiệp

TheLEADERHơn 500 nhà lãnh đạo và chuyên gia tài chính sẽ quy tụ trong Diễn đàn CFO Việt Nam 2021 do CFO Việt Nam phối hợp với ACCA Việt Nam và Hiệp hội Quốc tế các nhà quản trị tài chính cấp cao (IAFEI) tổ chức.

Đã hơn hai năm kể từ khi các doanh nghiệp Việt Nam bắt đầu phải đương đầu với cuộc khủng hoảng do Covid-19 gây ra. Trong đó, làn sóng dịch lần thứ tư với mức độ ảnh hưởng rất lớn và kéo dài và hiện vẫn đang diễn biến phức tạp ở nhiều địa phương đã khiến nhiều doanh nghiệp rơi vào trạng thái kiệt sức cả về “thể chất” lẫn tinh thần.

Dù trải qua bốn đợt dịch, có thêm kinh nghiệm đương đầu với khủng hoảng và đã lên nhiều kế hoạch dự phòng để đảm bảo sản xuất, kinh doanh nhưng nhìn chung, các nhà lãnh đạo doanh nghiệp vẫn chưa thể chắc chắn với tương lai phía trước.

Có một thực tế là những ứng phó của các nhà lãnh đạo và doanh nghiệp trong bối cảnh hiện tại ít nhiều được đúc kết từ những kinh nghiệm trong quá khứ. Việc nắm bắt các bài học quý báu được khắc họa rõ ràng sẽ không những giúp các nhà lãnh đạo ứng biến hiệu quả với hiện tại mà còn có thể dự báo, hoạch định tương lai bằng những hành động hôm nay.

Trong tình hình đó, Diễn đàn CFO Việt Nam 2021 với chủ đề “Nhìn sâu và nhìn xa – Nhìn thấu tương lai trong hiện tại” sẽ được tổ chức với nhiều phiên thảo luận vừa mang tính xu hướng vừa sát với thực tế của doanh nghiệp.

Trong đó, các chuyên gia uy tín trong và ngoài nước sẽ cung cấp một bức tranh toàn cảnh về kinh tế cũng như những dự báo đi kèm với các khuyến nghị cho tương lai nhằm vạch ra định hướng cho con đường từ khủng hoảng đến phục hồi.

Đáng chú ý, khi mà đại dịch kéo dài khiến dòng tiền – “máu” của doanh nghiệp bị cạn kiệt thì vai trò của các nhà giám đốc tài chính lại trở nên vô cùng quan trọng. Việc thảo luận và xác định về vai trò của CFO trong việc định hình lại mô hình kinh doanh trong bối cảnh mới là rất cấp thiết.

Bên cạnh đó, việc minh bạch hóa thông tin kế toán trong các hoạt động của doanh nghiệp là yêu cầu nhất thiết phải thực hiện trong tiến trình hội nhập của Việt Nam.

Cách đây gần 20 năm, Việt Nam đã xây dựng và công bố hệ thống chuẩn mực kế toán trong lĩnh vực doanh nghiệp. Năm 2020, lộ trình triển khai áp dụng chuẩn mực báo cáo tài chính quốc tế (IFRS) tại các doanh nghiệp đã chính thức được Bộ Tài chính ban hành với 3 giai đoạn. Một là giai đoạn chuẩn bị từ năm 2020 đến hết năm 2021. Hai là giai đoạn áp dụng tự nguyện từ năm 2022 đến hết năm 2025. Ba là giai đoạn bắt buộc áp dụng từ sau năm 2025.

Các chuyên gia tài chính và quản trị hàng đầu trong nước và khu vực sẽ thảo luận về mức độ sẵn sàng áp dụng IFRS của doanh nghiệp tại Việt Nam, đồng thời đưa ra các lời khuyên cũng như chia sẻ kinh nghiệm trong việc áp dụng thành công chuẩn mực báo cáo tài chính quốc tế.

Đáng chú ý, một nghiên cứu mới nhất của PwC đã chỉ ra rằng, tiêu chí môi trường, xã hội và quản trị (ESG) hiện đã trở thành yếu tố quyết định đối với các nhà đầu tư hàng đầu thế giới. Tiêu chí này buộc các nhà đầu tư và công ty tiếp nhận đầu tư phải xác định lại rủi ro trong các mô hình kinh doanh truyền thống cũng như những cơ hội góp phần tạo ra giá trị bền vững trong tương lai. ESG cũng sẽ là chủ đề được các chuyên gia cùng nhau thảo luận trong Diễn đàn CFO Việt Nam năm nay.

Ngoài ra, các chuyên gia trong nước và khu vực sẽ cập nhật và phân tích quy định trọng yếu ảnh hưởng đến hoạt động của doanh nghiệp; thảo luận các xu hướng M&A, hoạt động tài chính phi tập trung…trong phiên thảo luận “Thấu hiểu và dự báo”.

Những kinh nghiệm thực tiễn trong quản trị điều hành tài chính doanh nghiệp, huy động vốn; lập kế hoạch thuế và nhiều nội dung hấp dẫn khác sẽ được chia sẻ trong phiên thảo luận mang tên “Làm chủ tương lai từ hôm nay”.

Những cái tên nổi bật đến từ các doanh nghiệp lớn trong nước có thể kể đến như ông Lê Thành Liêm – Giám đốc Điều hành Tài chính của Vinamilk, ông Nguyễn Xuân Đại – Giám đốc Tài chính Sovico Group, ông Lê Vũ Trường Phó tổng giám đốc Ernst & Young Vietnam; ông Nguyễn Hoàng Nam – Phó tổng giám đốc PwC Việt Nam, ông Phan Vũ Hoàng – Phó tổng giám đốc Deloitte Vietnam, bà Châu Nguyễn – Trưởng Đại diện ACCA Việt Nam, ông Yee Chung Seck – Phó tổng giám đốc Baker & McKenzie Vietnam, ông Đặng Thế Đức – Luật sư điều hành Indochine Counsel, ông Tim Evans – Giám đốc điều hành HSBC Vietnam, ông Lê Khánh Lâm – Chủ tịch RSM Việt Nam…

Các chuyên gia quốc tế tham dự thảo luận trong diễn đàn năm nay có chuyên gia blockchain Anndy Lian – Chủ tịch BigONE Exchange châu Á, ông Hiroaki Endo – Giám đốc điều hành quỹ đầu tư PGIM Nhật Bản; ông Sharath Martin – cố vấn chuyên môn ACCA khu vực ASEAN ANZ, ông Nguyễn Ngọc Bách – Chủ tịch AsiaInvest Group kiêm Chủ tịch CFO Vietnam.

Diễn đàn CFO Việt Nam 2021 là sự kiện dành cho các lãnh đạo và chuyên gia tài chính được tổ chức bởi CFO Việt Nam phối hợp với ACCA Việt Nam và Hiệp hội Quốc tế các nhà quản trị tài chính cấp cao (IAFEI). Sự kiện năm nay được tổ chức trực tuyến qua ZoomEvents dự kiến có sự tham gia của hơn 300 lãnh đạo doanh nghiệp và 400 CFO hội viên Hiệp hội quốc tế các nhà quản trị tài chính cấp cao (IAFEI).

Anndy Lian Speaks at American Digital Week: ‘Decentralized Finance – What are the Opportunities?’

Anndy Lian Speaks at American Digital Week: ‘Decentralized Finance – What are the Opportunities?’

Anndy Lian, Chairman of BigONE Exchange gave a speech at the American Digital Week event on 19 October 2021, 13:00 – GMT. His topic is about ‘Decentralized Finance – What are the Opportunities?’

The following is the summary of his speech.

This is a fantastic time to be in DeFi, driven by short and long term drivers from the explosive growth of the NFT market overtaking DeFi, the new breed of play-to-earn games or GameFi, to rise of the ‘metaverse’ as the next big thing, there’s also a lot to unpick which is exciting an a little daunting if you are new to it.

But let’s start with some basics for those of you new to DeFi. A decentralized finance (DeFi) system allows people to create financial products or “smart contracts” that execute actions automatically on the blockchain – without any bank, brokerage, exchange, or corporation acting as an intermediary.

At the end of July 2021, the market capital for DeFi products was hovering near $80 billion. While that was down from its May peak of more than $89 billion, pundits believe growth will continue in the coming year as DeFi projects mature. Key to that maturity process is innovation DeFi – creating opportunities to profitably shape a decentralized future you’ll be sure to want to be a part of.

Let’s start with non-fungible tokens or more commonly known as NFTs. The NFT industry has exploded in popularity this year. There was more than $2.5 billion in sales volume during the first half of 2021 and it has only accelerated since then. OpenSea, the most popular NFT marketplace, saw more than $3 billion in NFT sales volume just during the month of August.

So what’s driving this demand in NFTs? The fact is that digital natives would rather own digital goods than physical goods, which means that we are watching the digitization of the collectibles industry. These digital natives want to use the NFTs as a way to play games, transact with each other, and generally recreate the collectibles industry. Another perspective, as outlined recently by popular crypto podcaster Pomp, is that we are watching the birth of a new type of status:

“Each individual that would normally drop $50,000 to $1,000,000 to purchase a car, watch, house, boat, etc is now realizing that you can spend the same money on a digital good and flex in front of more people on the internet. Only so many friends can check out your house and be impressed. But millions of people a month will see your Twitter avatar. These NFTs are a great example of where I would expect billions, if not trillions, of dollars to be made in the coming years.”

As Pomp says, just as every business had to figure out an internet strategy in the 1990s, every business is going to have to figure out their bitcoin strategy and every business is going to have to figure out their NFT strategy as well.

Speaking at the recent Paris ETH event EthCC Ben Lakoff, co-founder of NFT-protocol Charged Particles highlighted NFTs as in-game items and in the metaverse as examples: “There’s actually a new publicly traded exchange-traded fund, META. In your brokerage account, you can now get exposure to the metaverse plays that are publicly traded.”

Talking of the metaverse just a few weeks ago Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said within five years Facebook would be a “metaverse company” while Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO, said they were investing in the “enterprise metaverse.” Simply put, whoever can integrate NFTs and payment with the metaverse may well lead the biggest change in online culture and economy since the birth of the web in the 1990s. A view supported by David Raszucki, head of the $50 billion Roblox Corporation, who sees the emergence of the metaverse as profound a shift as the invention of the internet and the world wide web.

In a close fit with the vision of an open metaverse, play to earn crypto games are built on the fundamental need for a place that is available to everyone and owned by no one in particular. An amalgam of gaming and decentralized finance (DeFi), ‘GameFi’ refers to the intersection between blockchain-based gaming and decentralized financial instruments in all their guises: yield farming, lending/borrowing, algorithmic stablecoins, token minting instruments, etc.

“Crypto has been looking for a mass market use case,” Andrew Tu, an executive at quantitative trading firm Efficient Frontier, told CoinDesk. “Gaming is a sector that people have been hyping up for a long time. It’s the first area of crypto where the average Joe without a huge understanding of crypto or blockchain can participate.”
This rise in popularity of GameFi and associated tokens has captured the attention of the wider crypto market, especially in the longer-term trend of NFTs and the metaverse. The fund’s goal is to support developers and create GameFi projects by building decentralized finance (DeFi) content, the foundation said in a press release.

“GameFi is going to be the next big thing that makes the DeFi, NFT and the larger crypto space easy to understand and be involved in,” said Sun.

A striking example of how the rise of GameFi is driving the value of tokens came in early August with Axie Infinity, the popular crypto gaming platform on Ethereum, which raked in more than $220 million in revenue in 30 days to early August, making it the top revenue generator among all DeFi protocols and blockchains, Ethereum included, according to data from Token Terminal.

Not surprisingly this phenomenal price growth has caught traders and crypto market watchers’ attention. News BTC said, “Axie Infinity has been on an absolute tear lately. The play-to-earn platform has become the face of a new integration of crypto and gaming that holds unbelievable potential. Axie Infinity has surpassed 1M daily active users and is generating more revenue than any protocol or platform with the lone exception of Ethereum. Yes, Axie Infinity is yielding more fee revenue than major platforms such as OpenSea, Uniswap, Bitcoin, or the Binance Smart Chain.”

One of the key problems associated with such rapid growth in the DeFi ecosystem is the increasing transaction costs, particularly the rapidly increasing Ethereum gas fees. To address this issue, many projects in the crypto space are starting to offer cross-chain functionality. One of the most successful innovators in this space has been Polkadot. The price of the Polkadot governance coin (DOT) has risen to over $30 from under $10 in August. This puts DOT’s market cap at over $30 billion, about the same size as Ethereum a year ago. Also worth noting is the rise of Solana, recently listed on BigOne exchange, another ‘Ethereum-killer’ with lightning fast transactions at a fraction of the price. The rapid increase in value is largely a result of crypto gaming and successful NFT launches. Amid a huge NFTs sales, resulted in a bull rally of the Solana and the price of its token SOL which, trading at $1.60 during the start of January, smashed its all-time high (ATH) $194.82 on September 7th, 2021.

Anndy Lian: Decentralized Technologies Support Charity Causes and Beyond

Anndy Lian: Decentralized Technologies Support Charity Causes and Beyond

While in the early years of crypto involvement in the charity sector may have come across as a little gimmicky if well-intentioned, the advantages of using cryptocurrency for NGOs and charities come with real-world use cases, from monitoring donations with complete transparency over the blockchain to improving trust with donors at scale. In addition, this capability underlines a broader point that fundraising can be transformed globally by allowing charities to accept payments without the prohibitive cost of foreign exchange and transaction fees. And at another level, for charities working in hard-to-reach parts of the world, the ability to replace fiat currency with crypto alternatives from Bitcoin to stablecoins to pay for staff and running costs have already paid off in places like Afghanistan.

The maturation of mainstream charities using crypto for fundraising is reflected in well-known names such as UNICEF using platforms such as The Giving Block to accept Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrency donations. According to the Global NGO Technology Report, while currently cryptocurrency donations represent less than 5% of the payment methods used for charitable donations, there’s been a +100% growth in some countries. It is estimated that more than 13,300 BTC had been donated to charities implementing this payment method. The US-based Giving Block also reports other advantages of using crypto for their charity users, including the organizational-wide benefit of raising their profile within the sector by accepting crypto to attract crypto philanthropist’s attention.

While it may seem crypto startup efforts to harness tokenomics for charitable causes are just getting started, one initiative built on sustainable foundations and a strong team is Elongate. Its mission is to “leverage community action and blockchain technologies to grow a global movement that defies the status quo and makes profitability intrinsically linked to positive social impact.” Elongate has raised $3.25 million for notable NGOs like Children International, Human Relief Foundation, and Action Against Hunger. While just recently, it announced a seed donation to the Malala Fund, a fund “dedicated to working for a world where every girl can learn and lead.” Moving into its next phase of growth, Elongate in July announced a partnership with The Giving Block, intending to educate charities “about the untapped potential of cryptocurrency projects in creating social impact enabled by blockchain technologies”.

What Elongate’s total of over $3 million in donations in the last three months demonstrates is the importance of a well-thought-through framework for crypto use. Elongate’s system allows for both significant contributions to charity while rewarding its token holders a percentage of every transaction that occurs. Every time a purchase or sale happens, all existing token holders receive a portion of the transaction fees. The way it works is when you buy the Elongate token; a 10% fee is applied. So, for example, if you put in $100, you’ll receive $90 in the token. Of the remaining $10, the funds supporting the token get half. The other $5 is distributed among all the token holders. In other words, as you hold Elongate tokens, you earn the rewards from all other transactions.

As well as enabling individual donations and leveraging community action Elongate is soon to roll out a charity and consumer management platform, which it claims will be a first-of-its-kind marketplace that will bring together charities with organizations and individuals. “This platform will allow enterprises, consumers, and charities to receive, transfer and manage funds and donations in a transparent way. Donations or funds (BTC, BNB, and others) will be able to get traced to a specific project or person, for full transparency and accountability,” the charity confirmed. From the whitepaper, it’s clear their vision “to forge a revolutionary social impact ecosystem on the blockchain” doesn’t stop there. By buying Elongate tokens, members can vote on which projects to donate to using a community vote platform.

To safeguard its future development, the EG Association, a social impact association of the Elongate token, added to their board members’ blockchain expertise with the appointment of BigONE Exchange’s Anndy Lian as a non-executive chairman. The EG Association describes itself as “the real-world gateway – governing social impact activities on the ground such as donations, sponsorships, social entrepreneurship, and community action”. Anndy Lian’s duties include providing leadership and advice to the board to support a decentralized board structure. President of the EG Association, Lorenzo Andree, added: “Besides his subject matter expertise, Anndy is an amazing human being who supports social impact in local communities.”

Another crypto-fueled charity project making progress is Madagascar, also based on the Binance Smart Chain and Elongate. Besides donating to other charities, it also has charitable projects, such as planting trees in Madagascar. Indeed, the recently launched crypto startup got its name due to Madagascar’s climate vulnerability, using a lemur as its logo to symbolize the animals’ population decline. In addition, their crypto token $TIME was named to “underscore the immediate need for action to save our planet and safeguard the lives of future generations”.

The Madagascar team has set a goal to drive positive change while providing entertainment and games for its users. The current $TIME app is called “Spin the Wheel and Match Cards,” the first step for the planned casino. With plans to create games around lemur based NFT avatars that can be bought and traded to raise money for charity.

Donations are also going worldwide to places like Turkey, China, and Greece. These international projects focus on social issues from impoverished new mothers, children’s medical needs, and wildlife conservation. For example, co-founder and CMO of Madagascar Time, Ryan Bishop, said: “It’s about ‘$TIME’ an organization started using blockchain technology and crypto to change the world for the better.” The startup has donated more than $30,000 since July 1 to the Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Relief fund, the California Wildfire Emergency Relief fund, and planted 4,000 of a planned 1 million trees.

With a similar tokenomics to Elongate, the Madagascar team uses crypto for fundraising and enables token holders to raise funds as they trade. As outlined in the startup’s whitepaper: “Our crypto-project goal regarding the process of raising funds is making a bridge between a large stream of money and NGO’s/initiatives that need that money. So on one side, we have our investors who agreed when they traded our token that 2% goes to charity, and on the other side, we have different sorts of organizations we are going to fund with ‘charity wallet’ money.”

Also focused on the importance of environmental campaigning is UK-based crypto startup Save Planet Earth (SPE), launched in 2021, aiming to plant one billion trees through its crypto token. With the broader aim of tackling climate change through tree planting, their ambitious plan is to develop their carbon credit exchange. This exchange will sell carbon credits in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The aim is that the revenue generated from these carbon credits will fund more carbon capture projects to make the financially self-funding.

Save Planet Earth’s founder, Imran Ali, explained their carbon credit goals: “Our ultimate plan with the $SPE token, other than carbon offsets, is for it to be the currency of the carbon exchange we’re developing; individuals and organizations alike, will be able to use our token to buy carbon credits off of us, and other companies that choose to exchange their carbon credits on our market.” In their first four months, Save Planet Earth included tree planting contracts for one million trees in the Maldives and a hundred million trees in Sri Lanka, partnership with governments and NGOs.

Continuing the eco-charity theme is the SafeEarth crypto charity project, which recently announced they’d raised over $200,000 in charity donations this year. Also, using a DeFi approach to raising money, people want to do so by buying the SafeEarth token. The token is designed to reward holders while increasing both liquidity and value. It does this by applying a 4% tax on transactions. One percent of the tax goes toward eco-initiatives.

In addition, through this token, each holder is given a chance to vote on upcoming charitable incentives, with the charity with the most votes receiving the donations. Current charities supported range from The Ocean Cleanup, which aims to clean up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and reduce the chances of more plastic waste entering the oceans by capturing them from rivers globally. In addition, the Water Project offers financial support and training to people in sub-Saharan Africa to build their water supply and purification systems.

As a part of SafeEarth’s plan to raise awareness for ecological causes, they’ve also started a #PlasticChallenge on Twitter, urging people to eliminate plastic waste. The challenge launched earlier this year rewards users from a prize pool of $3,600 in SafeEarth tokens. Since the challenge began, the startup reported, “the SafeEarth token has been listed on the number one DEX Uniswap, recorded $3 million in trading volume and locked away more than $1.5 million in liquidity”. Other milestones for Q3 include staking and mining, achieving listings on mainstream crypto exchanges, and developing the SafeEarth ecosystem.

While the early years of crypto saw a great deal of optimism about the role these trustless platforms could play, acting without the need of intermediaries, it’s been a slow process of implementing these benefits in the charity sector. But as these use cases show, several token-driven startups have started to impact the charity sector more recently. Marrying tokenomics with donations to harness the enthusiasm of the broader crypto community for doing good is a framework that appears to be working. While Save Planet Earth’s use of NFTs for carbon credit exchanges shows, there are other creative crypto uses available to charities with the growth of the NFT market over the last 12 months.

“Innovative crypto and blockchain have the power to change lives around the world, and none more so with the use of these decentralized technologies to support charity causes.” #anndysays
