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.

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).

GameStop NFT Marketplace Rumors Swirl — What It Means for the Future of the Meme Stock

GameStop is going meta. The company, which reached a somewhat cult status among the Reddit army with its meme stock, has posted a slew of NFT-platform and Web3 gaming jobs on its career page this week, and rumors are flying as to what and when the company will launch.

The company also has a barebone website dedicated to an NFT platform, which says “We welcome exceptional engineers (solidity, react, python), designers, gamers, marketers, and community leaders. If you want to join our team, send your profile or something you’ve built to: [email protected]

“Just like we saw with Amazon hiring for crypto and blockchain specialists earlier this year, we’re seeing more and more companies looking to integrate crypto and blockchain into their roadmaps,” Stephen Stonberg, CEO of Bittrex Global, told GOBankingRates. “The future includes crypto as well as its underlying technology blockchain — which has proven to be a catalyst of innovation in so many sectors outside of its well-known home base. Blockchain is really the key to a metaverse-esque future for gaming, retail, the medical sector, and other industries. It’s exciting to see frontrunners in each market category push for the integration of blockchain within their respective sector.”

The job postings include three director of marketing- NFT platform positions; three senior software engineers- NFT platform positions; and two product owner- Head of Web3 gaming positions.

Tobias Batton, Founder and CEO at Ex Populus, an entertainment brand and publishing platform built entirely on Ethereum, told GOBankingRates that “GameStop holds a very special place in the heart of the game and investment community and it’s encouraging to see the company leverage its resources to create an innovative new platform that drives the industry forward.”

Batton added that it is inevitable that smart contracts will become ubiquitous and commonplace in the commerce of games and even within the games themselves. NFTs in video games are the likely species of blockchain technology to lead the way in the mass adoption of crypto and its various appendages.

“We are cheering for GameStop and are eager to meet them in the arena as a competitor,” Batton said.

Anndy Lian, Chairman, BigONE Exchange and founding member of NFT studio and marketplace INFLUXO, echoes the sentiment, telling GOBankingRates that “it is good to see another mainstream listed company heading into the crypto space.”

“Many of my friends think that this is a bullish sign for investors. I also see Redditors are claiming that they will buy more GME Shares when the marketplace happens. There will be an overflow to the crypto markets, too. From our exchange’s perspective, we have received more inquiries about listing of NFT Marketplaces in the last 24 hours, Lian added. “With the added publicity, I believe more companies will ride on the waves and take this as a chance. This would also mean that we will see more blockchain and crypto adoption through storefront locations, for example. Web 3.0 marketplace will be greater when more people are talking and using it.”

GameStop started getting in the news last January, when retail traders on the subreddit group WallStreetBets, who were intent on taking down hedge-fund short sellers by buying shares of stocks that didn’t seem to have much of a chance of success, sent stocks, including GameStop, soaring (and then crashing). This led to a slew of events, including a record 400% weekly gain for the week ending Jan. 29, which triggered intense regulatory scrutiny. Last week, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) released its much-anticipated report on the GameStop frenzy, “the most famous meme stock, which raised questions about market structure and investor protections at the beginning of the year.”

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.
