Anndy Lian: Keynote Speech at Blockchain Summit LatAm 2021

Anndy Lian: Keynote Speech at Blockchain Summit LatAm 2021

Decentralized crypto initiatives and government moves to co-opt crypto show that Latin American is at the crossroads of a revolution in crypto adoption, said Anndy Lian, Chairman of BigONE Exchange, following a successful Blockchain Summit LatAm, which ended on September 10.

“The news that El Salvador has launched Bitcoin as legal tender is encouraging news for the whole region, but such a decentralized currency needs to include education and practical tools for everyday use that are built with its users in mind – principles which are at the heart of our own global exchange,” he added.

The trend towards greater use of cryptocurrency in Latin America is not hard to see. Between 2017 and 2020, the bitcoin volume in Latin America has an average of 6% of the volume of BTC globally. In March 2020, Latin America had a 15.8% share, compared to 6% in the US. In April 2021, the Latin American countries with the highest volume of cryptocurrencies are Colombia, with 45% of bitcoin volume in the region; followed by Peru with 13%; Chile with 12%; Mexico with 11%; and Brazil with 11%.

Another trend is the growing commitment from Latin American governments to advance central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), with the Central Bank of Venezuela launching its CBDC in October. The region’s regulators aren’t uniformly in favor of cryptocurrency, however, so progress its likely to be uneven.

While the LatAm conference was taking place Mauricio Moura, a director of the Central Bank of Brazil, stated that anonymity when using crypto won’t be a choice for users in future, an approach likely to be followed by other Latin American governments. Nevertheless, Visa’s vice president of new business in Brazil stated recently that the company will be testing direct bitcoin payments this year.

The potential of decentralized digital assets to disrupt Latin American markets isn’t going away any time soon however, especially with the global boom in the market for NFTs.  In Latin America culture, where art, design, music, and sports are celebrated, the NFT market is starting to grow, such as Influxo’s Ronaldinho NFT supported by BigONE, which will be launched shortly. Although NFTs are still relatively new to Latin America marketplaces, it’s a part of the revolution in crypto adoption that will only increase in popularity.

Anndy Lian is an early blockchain adopter and experienced serial entrepreneur who is known for his work in the government sector. He is a best selling book author “Blockchain Revolution 2030”. Currently, he is appointed as Chairman, Asia for BigONE Exchange and Chief Digital Advisor, Mongolia Productivity Organisation. Anndy is part of the Gyeongsangbuk-do Blockchain Special Committee, Government of Republic Korea, together with industry experts such as Brock Pierce. Lian played a pivotal role as the Blockchain Advisor for Asian Productivity Organisation (APO), an intergovernmental organization committed to improving productivity in the Asia-Pacific region and was previously the Advisory Board Member of Hyundai DAC Technology.

An avid supporter of incubating start-ups, Anndy has also been a private investor for the past eight years. With a growth investment mindset, Anndy strategically demonstrates this in the companies he chooses to be involved with. He believes that what he is doing through blockchain technology currently will revolutionise and redefine traditional businesses. He also believes that the blockchain industry has to be “redecentralised”.

vision.

Latam 2021, which will take place from September 6-10, 2021, is one of the
most important blockchain and encrypted asset events held in Latin America
each year. The Blockchain Summit Latam is more than just a conference; it is
an ecosystem that brings together entrepreneurs, developers, companies,

Highlights of the 2021 Blockchain Summit Latam

People would look at the development of blockchain and digital assets so far
in 2021 from compliance and supervision at the summit. Notable events include
the passage into law of a regulation that makes Bitcoin legal tender in El
Salvador, the first of its kind for the blockchain ecosystem.

From the standpoint of user engagement, the emergence of 'Animal or meme
coins' would also be discussed. They have led the trend to promote complete
decentralization of the ecosystem and gain massive traction in cryptocurrency
circles.

During this summit, other milestones achieved in the NFT, DeFi and other
sectors in the ecosystem would be considered in terms of industry
technological advancement. They continue to show progressive growth and set
the path for the future of blockchain.

At this summit, industry leaders and blockchain experts worldwide will look at
these events and discuss issues relating to technological research and
development, innovation, and the cryptocurrency market in domains such as
global regulation, economic impact, DeFi, and other practical applications.

Mr. Anndy Lian, the newly appointed Chairman of BigONE Asia, was specially
invited as a guest speaker during this summit and gave a critical keynote
address on Day 2: The Latin America Ecosystem. Mr. Anndy, a global government
regulations expert with over 15 years of experience, will be discussing
international supervision, the economy, DeFi, and current issues in the Latin
American blockchain ecosystem with other guests. Mr. Anndy also served as the
keynote speaker at the World E-sports and Blockchain Summit, alongside other
notable figures such as former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon.

So far, Latin America has been one of the key regions with the highest rate of
cryptocurrency and digital asset adoption. It is also regarded as one of the
first areas where blockchain technology has been implemented. This
demonstrates a very positive attitude toward blockchain and its underlying use
cases.

Mr. Anndy, Chairman of BigONE Asia, sees Latin America as a critical
international market for BigONE. Accordingly, it seeks to accelerate its
globalization strategy to foster the growth of the cryptocurrency/digital
assets ecosystem.

When asked about the role of Latin America in the future of blockchain
technology and how this region can help facilitate growth, Mr. Anndy said,
'Latin America has shown so far, with their mass adoption of blockchain
technology over the years, that they have a high level of trust in the
potential of blockchain technology as the foundation for the future of the
world, and at BigONE, we believe this is the case and are looking to identify
with key regions like this to foster the growth of cryptocurrencies and to aid
BigONE's globalization.'
