Knnit Speaks to Anndy Lian, Singapore Blockchain Expert on “The Purpose of 2nd Tier Crypto Exchanges”

Knnit Speaks to Anndy Lian, Singapore Blockchain Expert on “The Purpose of 2nd Tier Crypto Exchanges”

  1. Can you tell us more about yourself?

My name is Anndy Lian. I have been active in the blockchain market since 2017. I had my first bitcoin in early 2010 when they are worth much lesser basically. Right now I spend most of my time advising governments and also acting as the Chairman (Asia) for Decent Foundation based in Switzerland and Chairman (Singapore) for Korean eSports Industry Association. I am also a book author for Blockchain Revolution 2030.

 

  1. In your view, do second-tier crypto-exchanges do enough to differentiate themselves? Do they have unique selling points? What do they offer that bigger exchanges don’t?

Top few exchanges seem to have everything, not much left for the second-tier and small exchanges so they are working/ struggling especially hard, just to survive. The only advantage they have compared to the big brothers is they are too small to be on the radar so they can be more “wild”. You seldom see a coin goes 100X on big exchanges but it’s still happening on second-tier and small exchanges. However small exchanges close down every month so users who like to “gamble” will choose the second-tier exchange over the big ones.

 

  1. What, if anything, can second-tier exchanges do to differentiate themselves? Do you expect such exchanges to succeed in introducing unique features in the future?

Yes, they need to have a new model, their own models, the first in the industry kind of model to succeed. However, new model also means high uncertainty and risk. You do it well you become Bitmex, you do it wrong Fcoin is your example.

 

  1. Does the crypto system really need smaller, second-tier exchanges? What role do they serve, if any?

Yes, smaller, second-tier exchanges are like the catfish in the sardines, more players mean more competition, more competition brings more innovation and better services. Those newcomers they are standing on the shoulders of giants, they can build their exchanges on the most neat and efficient manner, they can try new features more freely, respond and adjust to the market faster.

 

  1. Do you expect to see consolidation in the cryptocurrency exchange sector in the future? How much consolidation?

It’s already happening:

1) Many exchanges are opening their branches abroad, sometimes they do it themselves but more times they collaborate with local exchange partners( eg. OKEx & OKEx Korea).

2) Small/New exchanges are opening/switching their businesses on/to big exchange’s cloud services so they can start easy and cheap, when they grow big they can even get investment from the big exchanges.

3) Big exchanges are also collaborating more and investing in other exchanges eg Binance investing into WazirX India.

 

  1. What other observations do you see in the crypto exchange market?

New crypto exchanges will pop up now and then. Those who inspired to start an exchange will go to companies like ChainUp, HyrdaX, SHIFT etc. Some trends were possibly be revived such as DAPP Gaming Store and Decentralised Exchanges (DEX) in the mid of 2021 too. I am keeping a close lookout on these possibilities. In the nutshell, crypto exchanges are here to stay and here to make more noises for the crypto and blockchain communities.

Blockcast.cc在韩国举行圆桌会议,讨论链接全球游戏市场

Blockcast.cc在韩国举行圆桌会议,讨论链接全球游戏市场

Blockcast.cc于2020年1月21日组织了一场关于韩国游戏产业的圆桌会议,旨在促进进一步发展游戏市场,并弥合欧洲玩家与亚洲玩家之间的鸿沟。

Blockcast.cc是新加坡领先的区块链媒体和新闻源,旨在为行业带来全球最新的区块链新闻和见解。 Blockcast.cc于2018年在新加坡成立,并在中国,香港,韩国和马来西亚设有社区网络。创始人Jenny Zheng及其团队一直对区块链技术在游戏行业的发展特别感兴趣,并成功地为一些区块链游戏公司策划并执行了市场发展战略,涉及在线赌场,赛马,电子竞技等领域。这次在韩国的圆桌会谈上,他们与韩国本土机构和职业玩家们共同讨论行业前景并探索新的合作伙伴关系,以实现更多的游戏项目上的的合作。

(从左到右-James Kim,Park Bong Kyu,Anndy Lian,Clive Aroskin,Jenny Zheng)

在此次圆桌会议上,英国知名区块链游戏平台Gaimin.io与韩国区块链技术公司Nix Mobba成功达成合作意向,双方将在不久的未来同意探索在支付和钱包领域的合作。

Nix Mobba(www.nixblock.com)是一家始于韩国,也许遍及世界的国际化区块链技术公司,专注于区块链技术与游戏结合领域的相关服务,例如加密货币支付和数字资产管理系统。他们的首席执行官James Kim是一位成功的连续创业企业家,不仅在区块链和游戏领域颇有建树,也涉足金融和时尚等其他行业。James有丰富的创业和管理经验,擅长跨界。他近两年在电子竞技领域非常活跃,并计划在2020年组织区域性大型电子竞技活动。目前Nix Mobba在韩国和新加坡均已注册运行。

Gaimin.io(www.gaimin.io)是一家总部位于英国曼彻斯特的公司,也是一家基于区块链技术的游戏平台。该平台可让玩家的个人电脑在空闲时自动分享该电脑的GPU算力,并为游戏玩家赢得经济收益。同时,游戏玩家还可以在Gaimin平台上利用所获得的Gaimin.io代币GMRX进行购买和支付,从而减少游戏玩家的经济负担并提升他们的游戏体验。 Gaimin.io的首席运营官Clive Aroskin专门从瑞士飞到首尔,参加了此次会议。

Nixpay是Nix Mobba旗下的重要产品系列之一,通过该产品,游戏玩家可以轻松地在平台上进行数字资产与韩国法定货币 -韩元之间的兑换。 James与Clive一见如故,他们都认为Gaimin与Nixpay的合作将最大程度地提升两个产品的效率和使用体验,并可以将亚洲欧洲两个地区的游戏市场和玩家更紧密地联系在一起。

“ Nix Mobba已经成功打入韩国和中国市场,我们的技术很成熟,并且已经被证明具有商业价值。如果我们能通过Gaimin.io打通欧洲市场,那将是我们市场发展的一大飞跃。今天下午我们就已经与技术部门一起,就与Gaimin合作事项展开了研讨,我十分看好并期待此次与Gaimin的合作。” James在会后对Blockcast.cc的记者透露道。

“非常感谢Blockcast.cc和Jenny组织的此次圆桌会议。让我们遇到了潜在的地区合作伙伴Nix Mobba,我们在会上进行了许多非常有价值的讨论,我十分期待与他们一起合作。我们还结识了许多其他的韩国游戏行业的朋友,我向他们介绍了Gaimin的平台和愿景,我很高兴他们都对此表现出了极高的兴趣。我期待未来在韩国市场更多的交流和合作,也希望未来有更多的韩国朋友认识并加入我们,共同实现提升游戏市场的愿景。我很高兴此行获得了丰硕成果,目前我们的团队已经在努力与Nix Mobba和James共同准备签署正式的谅解备忘录。” Clive在会后对记者透露道, “我们与Biconomy的第三个IEO的成功为我们提供了更大的信心,并扩大了Gaimin的用户范围。而Blockcast.cc作为我们的媒体伙伴在整个过程中一直与我们紧密沟通协作,让整个过程更加顺畅。此次圆桌会议也正是因为他们的积极协调,使我们有机会与更多的韩国行业领袖会面,并促成了我们与Nix Mobba等伙伴的链接与合作,感谢他们的一路陪伴。”

(从左到右-Anndy Lian,Peter Lee,Clive Aroskin,Jenny Zheng)

“在Blockcast.cc组织的系列活动中,我遇到了许多游戏行业从业者和职业竞技选手,其中许多人对区块链很好奇,并对该技术可以为游戏行业做什么很期待。我还有幸在会上体验到了Clive笔记本电脑上的Gaimin.io挖矿插件,它很有趣并且很有潜力。感谢Blockcast.cc的邀请,他们的线下活动一直都很目标明确并非常高效,行业中应该多一些这类的有意义有价值的会找。” 韩国政府庆尚北道区块链特别委员会成员Anndy Lian在会上评论道。

圆桌会议系列是Blockcast.cc 2020年路线图的重要组成部分,旨在开展小型精准活动达成区块链行业间合作。 同时,Blockcast.cc还将在这一年里采访150位区块链行业专业人士,并在2020年推出大型行业会议”Redecentralise”。有关Blockcast.cc的更多信息,请访问www.blockcast.cc。

Baidu: 2020 区块链机遇的新纪元

“我们可以看到近期市场热度被重新点燃,投资者也开始重拾对区块链的信心,并有越来越多的传统投资者们也开始加入学习了解代币化模型。我认为,在ICO和IEO时代之后,将会出现新的筹资方式,它更安全更有保障,也对传统投资机构们更加友好。,例如IWO(Initial Wallet Offerings)或ICBO(Initial Community-backed Offerings),我预测此类产品可能会在明年进入市场,这可能会吸引新的传统投资者进入区块链市场,引入有监管的证券化交易所系统,这也将进一步强化市场信心。”亚洲生产力组织(APO)区块链顾问 Anndy Lian 在会上提到。
