Anndy Lian said: “It is always good to share with friends in the industry about what I am doing now. There are tons of things that I would like to share. 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 the rise of the ‘metaverse’ as the next big thing, there’s also a lot to unpick which is exciting and a little daunting if you are new to it.”
