Look to the Long Term To Prosper in the Crypto Sector, Says BigONE Exchange’s Anndy Lian

Look to the Long Term To Prosper in the Crypto Sector, Says BigONE Exchange’s Anndy Lian

Speaking on the panel ‘Why are crypto exchanges still flourishing?’ at Crypto Expo Dubai on March 16, 2022, the Chairman of BigONE Exchange Anndy Lian and council member to Kishu Inu said he firmly believed in the sector’s long term prospects.

“All the good actors we have to understand why we’re here; is it because there is a chance to earn more money, a chance to earn a few million dollars on exit? That’s not true, people at Binance or FTX are all looking at the long term investment in infrastructure, including investing in licenses, and most importantly investing in people, not just their own staff but also their community,” said Lian. “Is it better for an exchange to be located in Seychelles versus Singapore or South Korea? It becomes a choice where you want to be regulated, where your community is,” he added.

Clearly, the crypto exchange industry is at a crossroads, with the sanctions against Russia together with incoming crypto regulation led by the US likely to lead to a significant change in how exchanges operate.

Until now exchanges outside the US which have largely ignored regulation have been at an advantage, allowing them to win as they benefited from lower overheads and restrictions. But as financial regulation starts to bite, this liberal regime that allowed global players like Binance to thrive is no longer the case. It was reported in December 2021 that Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange with a daily turnover of US$76 billion, withdrew its application to start a cryptocurrency exchange in Singapore.

In the US the SEC amended rules published in January which expand its oversight to securities traded outside its supervision means that decentralized exchanges such as Uniswap, which traded more than $70bn in volume in January, could also be affected. US President Biden’s new executive order, directing agencies to work out a comprehensive approach to cryptocurrencies bodes well for the sector, but regulatory implementation will be key.

“In conclusion, I think there’s still a lot of good money out there to be made. It’s not just about Binance or FTX, if you in your jurisdiction do well, and create your own community and be truthful in your operations, whether a meme coin or layer 2, then there is sufficient money in the market, there are sufficient exchanges to be listed on for you to prosper; but overall, it’s going to be a long term process,” Lian remarked.

At this panel discussion, we are joined by Osama Bari (CTO, Difx), Peter Sumer (CEO, Bitmarkets), Mohammad Khalifa (CEO, Garantex), Shantnoo Saxsena (COO, Lbank) and Anndy Lian (Chairman, Bigone & Council Member, Kishu Inu Foundation) and moderated by Uptin Saiidi.

Korea NFT Projects Should Embrace Community To Build Success, Says BigONE Exchange’s Anndy Lian

Korea NFT Projects Should Embrace Community To Build Success, Says BigONE Exchange’s Anndy Lian

Speaking at the 1st Korea Blockchain Conference (KBCC) on February 15, 2022, the Chairman of BigONE Exchange Anndy Lian underlined the importance of a powerful online community to securing the success of any NFT project.

 

As well as the obvious boom in NFT artwork, and in Korea the use of NFTs to promote K-pop, Lian said the growth in the use of NFTs to connect fans and artists through all-access type membership was notable: “Whether it’s to get closer to your favorite UFC fighter or singer these are hot trends in the market right now driven by the power of community.”

 

Another form of community where we are going to see the growth of NFTs is around meme coins, he added: “That kind of utility is really powerful because they have the community backing them you know, so they will have the benefit of starting their NFT project with a few hundred thousand users right at the start.” It was for this reason, due to the strength of their community, that Lian added that he saw these big communities as personally worth investing in.

 

In terms of Korea’s leading role in blockchain innovation Lian told the panel audience that from his experience, talking with corporations such as Samsung and Hyundai, as well as senior Government officials, the key players are all very mindful of the importance of blockchain technology for the country’s future. “It’s not simply about creating decentralized data storage but how this technology will be embedded in our lives, enabling the automation of all aspects of the economy for the benefit of all citizens.”

The panel titled ‘Blockchain Technology, Innovation And Opportunity’ was led by Jenny Zheng (Bybit, NFT BD Lead), Anndy Lian (BigONE Exchange, Chairman), Davy Goh (Passion VC, CEO), and Joe Lu (Origin Storage, Partner), and Hwang Byung-sun (Big Bang Angels, CEO).

The event’s opening session was given by HS88 Chairman Kim Ho-seong. The session ended with a speech by Won Hee-ryong, a member of the People’s Power, and Lee Sang-ki, the Korean representative of the World Blockchain Organization (WBO).

KBCC was designed to help the growth and development of the blockchain industry. The event aims to let the South Korean audiences know more about the technology by bringing foreign experts to share their experience.

New NFTs Need To Build Community To Succeed, Says Head of Crypto Exchange

New NFTs Need To Build Community To Succeed, Says Head of Crypto Exchange

Speaking at the 14th World Blockchain Summit MARVELS, the Chairman of BigONE Exchange Anndy Lian said that key to success for NFT startups was a supportive community and a compelling user case. As a guest speaker at the event on February 22, under the theme of ‘NFT META Korea 2022’, Lian agreed that the global market for NFTs was very active currently but wanted to share his experience in how NFT projects can be successful in the longer run.

 

“While NFT creation looks straightforward the true essence of the NFT, the true value comes from community, as well as the technology and the tokenomics. If you are looking to launch a NFT studio, and you wish to partner with our partners, it could be with a meme coin community with Shiba Inu, Kishu Inu, or XRdoge, as all these projects have a very big community behind them; if you need that kind of partnership to succeed in the global market then we can help you,” Lian told his audience at the Seoul event.

 

The market in NFTs boomed in 2021, with total sales globally totaling $25 billion, up from just $94.9 million the year before, according to DappRadar. “Not surprisingly social media is awash with tales of get rich quick NFT success, from CryptoPunks to Bored Apes, and everything in between, but the fascination with digital art is going to change in 2022, with more use cases around utility. Clearly NFT projects need to be as transparent as possible when creating their offerings and grow a viable community as they progress, said Lian

 

One key factor that should be with a team from the outset is to ensure the NFT has utility, which is closely tied to the importance of community. At its core of course NFTs are a great way for creators and artists to contact directly with their fans, with their community. And that’s probably the most compelling use case to date that’s going to sustain the growth of NFTs into the future, Lian added.

 

Lian illustrated for the audience the importance of getting this relationship between the NFT and its community, between creators and fans, with the example of starting a NFT around a well-known soccer player. While on paper the fans of a soccer player appear to be automatically part of the NFT community you are building, that isn’t necessarily the case. What is needed is a strong bond to be created between the fans and the soccer star and the platform for it to work. This was related to the importance of ensuring that when you see a new project in the NFT space you should as an investor consider whether it has utility.

 

Lian added that for NFT creators it was important to be transparent about their offering to investors, not only to better convey its value, but also to ensure that when regulators start to enter the space in 2022 the quality of the NFT industry stands up to scrutiny.

 

Oh Myung, former Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Science and Technology; Oh Se-hoon, Mayor of Seoul City; Lee Won-Wook, National Assemblyman and Minister of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport; Cho Myung-hee, chairman of the National Assembly and the Special Committee for Future Industry Jobs; Yoon Chang-Hyun, chairman of the Special Committee for Virtual Assets; and Yang Jung-sook, a member of the National Assembly and the Korea Communications Commission delivered speeches opening the conference.
