Anndy Lian Spoke at Crypto Art NFT/ DeFi Event “NFT has to move beyond art, into finance”

Anndy Lian Spoke at Crypto Art NFT/ DeFi Event “NFT has to move beyond art, into finance”

Anndy Lian and TokyoCrypto catch up at the Crypto Art NFT Event on Twitch, 10 April 2021. This event is produced by NFT.Black and partnering with Beyond Finance.

NFT stands for non-fungible token, are pieces of digital content linked to the blockchain, the digital database underpinning cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and ethereum. Unlike NFTs, those assets are fungible, meaning they can be replaced or exchanged with another identical one of the same value, much like a dollar bill.NFTs aren’t exactly new. CryptoKitties, a digital trading game on the cryptocurrency platform Ethereum, was one of the original NFTs, allowing people to purchase and sell virtual cats that were both unique and stored on the blockchain.

NFT catches the trend this quarter and is the most talked-about topic currently in the crypto-verse. It’s popularity is in part driven by the fact that anybody can tokenise their work to sell as an NFT but interest has been fuelled by recent headlines of multi-million-dollar sales. On 19 February, an animated Gif of Nyan Cat – a 2011 meme of a flying pop-tart cat – sold for more than $500,000. A few weeks later, musician Grimes sold some of her digital art for more than $6m.

It is not just art that is tokenised and sold. Twitter’s founder Jack Dorsey has promoted an NFT of the first-ever tweet, with bids hitting $2.5m. Christie’s sale of an NFT by digital artist Beeple for $69m (£50m) set a new record for digital art.

Anndy Lian was also interviewed by Channel News Asia (CNA) Insider last week. (https://anndy.com/interview/is-digital-art-the-next-thing-to-invest-in-money-mind-cna-insider-nft-boom/)

In the event, Anndy shares his views on crypto in general. TokyoCrypto also asked Anndy about NFT, DeFi, on-chain custodian and more.

At the end of the event, Anndy brought up an interesting point. “Combine cross-chain capabilities from tech companies like CZZ (Classzz.com) with NFT multi-chain marketplace like Hodooi.com would be interesting. Companies should come together to create a better-decentralised environment for this industry and not work alone.”

Lian has also told a reporter from Blockpaths.com that NFT has to move beyond art, into finance. “NFT is not just about art. It is also way beyond the current hype. The real capability for NFT is not fully tapped on. Its ecosystem and infrastructure are still in the building stage, we will definitely see its true self in the near future.”
