Forbes India: Innovative Ronaldinho NFT Launched by Influxo Studio with technology from BigONE Exchange

Forbes India: Innovative Ronaldinho NFT Launched by Influxo Studio with technology from BigONE Exchange

In 2021 the rise of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) has been nothing short of phenomenal. In the art world in March the ‘shock of the new’ came in the form of a $69.3 million sale of a digital collage at Christie’s. But the real mass market for NFTs in 2021 arrived with the NFT-enabled ‘makeover’ of the National Basketball Association (NBA) sports collectibles, with over $200 million in sales in February and March alone. Until now the global game of football has lagged behind, this is starting to change. Italy’s Serie A has started offering NFTs, with collectibles including match highlights made available to celebrate the 2021 Coppa Italia final. And now with the recent announcement of a limited edition NFT collection featuring two-time FIFA World Player of the Year, Ronaldinho it seems certain NFTs are about to take the world of football by storm.

Up until now technology in sport has pushed in the other direction from NFTs which accentuate the scarcity and uniqueness of sporting moments. In the past this took the form of football cards, traded among fans and friends, with some being sold and bought on platforms such as eBay. Globally there are hundreds of millions of football fans whose childhoods included collecting, swapping and trading cards. With the advent of NFTs the digital makeover of trading cards involves the upgrading of images for high quality video clips, blockchain-based certification for authentication agencies, and digital displays in the form of smartphones for binders, and online trading platforms for offline collectors’ events.

But what NFTs bring is something quite different, the application of technology to create scarcity. For the first time a football fan can become the owner of exclusive pieces featuring the Brazilian world-class soccer star. Daniel Liu, partner at investment backers INBlockchain and INFLUXO CEO explained: “Our trusted platform, seamless user experience and trusted team of investors and developers has allowed us to secure Ronaldinho for the platform’s first collection and we’re thrilled to show what’s in store for the future of digital collectibles.”

For football fans the attraction of NFTs comes down to their power to deliver that specific type of uniqueness that ownership brings. While this form of ownership may feel unfamiliar to older football fans, it comes as no surprise to a younger generation of fans already used to spending money on virtual currencies within video games. In other words, they offer the same kind of ‘bragging rights’ through use of a smartphone, that once physical football cards gave an earlier generation of fans.

Ronaldinho’s NFT ‘Masterpiece’ collection sits on the Influxo marketplace, where you can browse, buy, and bid on high-quality NFTs endorsed by world-class celebrities and artists. Collectively called ‘INFLUXO X Ronaldinho’, as well as the NFTs there is a set of Sports cards. ‘Football Magic’. Ronaldinho’s career saw him win the UEFA Champions League as well as two La Liga titles with Barcelona and a Serie A crown while playing for AC Milan with the 2005 Ballon d’Or and his 2004 and 2005 FIFA World Player of the Year awards among his many individual accolades. With INFLUXO acting as the gateway, supported by blockchain technology providers BigONE, it’s an exciting opportunity for the most dedicated fans to collectible digital assets and real-world experiences.

“I’m so excited to share this news that @Influxo_NFT is launching a series of NFTs in my honor, giving my biggest fans the chance to bid for my unique NFT digital collectibles, and to collect the seven exclusive sports cards, said Ronaldo de Assis Moreira, famously known as Ronaldinho.  “I love the fact I’ll get the chance to meet my fans in person in Dubai next year, including all the NFT auction winners, and one lucky fan with the full set of sports cards. The devotion of football fans is what help make the global game of football truly special, so it’s really good to celebrate this with my fans all around the world.”

Liu confirmed the NFT collection will include seven unique ‘Masterpiece’ series, together with a complete sports card NFT collection all endorsed and signed by the footballer. They depicting Ronaldinho playing football, futsal, footvolley, e-sports, teqball etc. The cards will be a limited edition of 1000. The NFTs are based on original pictures created by Camaleão, a world-famous artist who specializes in creating physical canvases. The artist said that the creative idea that inspired the pictures of Ronaldinho was to depict fragments of his footballing genius. To bring these into the NFT world INFLUXO partnered with a world-leading animation studio to digitize Camaleão’s canvases, confirmed Liu.

Anndy Lian, founding partner of INFLUXO and Chairman of BigONE which is providing the platform that supporting Ronaldinho’s first NFT digital collectible sale, says he’s delighted to be working with the Brazilian star. “We are happy to work with Ronaldinho on this very special NFT launch, using our safe and secure blockchain technology to make sure it all runs smoothly for him, and all his fans around the world.”

While in 2021 NFTs have risen to prominence in art and sport, and the legion of football fans have yet to enjoy access to a NFT marketplace, this is starting to change says Lian. “The beauty of NFTs is that they can capture the kind of dynamic moments that are the 21st century version of the beloved, but static football cards. And for football clubs and leagues they have the potential to provide much-needed form of revenue.” While NFTs confer ownership, the copyright remains with the club or player.  “The sky’s the limit, the beauty of NFTs is that they aren’t just for digital collectibles, they can be used to prove ownership for traditional football cards, through to player’s shirts and other sought-after memorabilia”, Lian added.

The seven NFTs from the Ronaldinho collection will be made available to fans through a live online auction process, with a starting bid price of 20,000 USDT. The idea is that the winners of each auction will in addition to the unique collectible NFT also receive the opportunity to participate in a unique experience, meeting with Ronaldinho in Dubai next year. The experience includes a round-trip ticket and a two-day hotel stay, as well as a gala dinner and of course the meeting with Ronaldinho himself.

To take part each bidder must show proof of funds and have enough money locked in their wallet at the start of the auction in order to start bidding; in addition, each bidder has to place a minimum increment bid of 10,000 USDT. The specialist auction process is designed so that in the final hour, there will be an ‘extra time’ period, which requires a bid to occur only if and when the increment amount is 10% of the current auction price. The final and highest bidder wins the auction. Once their bid is confirmed, and payment settled, all the other bidders’ locked money will be returned after the auction ends.

Sports legend card NFTs will also be available for sale for 299 USDT. A complete series consists of six cards and one airdropping card. Collectors who hold the complete set will also be entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win the same Dubai experience with the NFT auction winners, with ten runners up winning a Ronaldinho-signed football shirt.

Anndy Lian’s article on Asia Franchise Magazine: Franchising- The Use of Blockchain Technology

Anndy Lian’s article on Asia Franchise Magazine: Franchising- The Use of Blockchain Technology

Anndy Lian wrote an article titled Franchising- The use of Blockchain Technology on Asia Franchise Magazine, April- June 2021 edition. This magazine is a bilingual magazine started by Albert Kong, Editor in Chief and veteran in the Franchising industry.

In this article, Anndy covered basic topics from what is blockchain and cryptocurrency to how companies can use this technology to help with their brand loyalty, payment and fundraising process. He went on to give a regulatory overview of cryptocurrencies

Lastly, Lian gave his advice on how to evaluate the need for blockchain for your business.

Evaluate the need for blockchain for your business

In the near future, you may receive many tempting grants for blockchain adoption. Consultants will often sell with a generic concept and a long list of alleged benefits.

But looking at the business environment, the first database-related question you need to ask yourself is “Do you need to store state?” If your answer is no, then you do not need to implement blockchain. If your answer is yes, then the second question you need to ask is “Are there multiple participants?” If your answer is no again, then you do not need blockchain.

Assuming, you need multiple participants, then the third question would be “Can you use an always online trusted third party?” And this time round, if your answer is no, then there is no need to use blockchain. If your answer is no, then there is a need to look at what kind of blockchain suits your environment.

“Are all the participants known?” is the next question you need to ask yourself. If the participants are not known, then you should consider permissionless blockchain. Permissionless blockchains are blockchains that require no permission to join and interact with. They are also known as public blockchains.
Most of the time, permissionless blockchain is ideal for running and managing digital currencies. If the participants are known, naturally you need to ask if all the participants are trusted. If they are all trusted, then blockchain is not needed.

Again, if the participants are not trusted and there is no need to have the public to verify, you should choose private permissioned blockchain. A private blockchain allows only selected entry of verified participants; the operator has the rights to override, edit, or delete the necessary entries on the blockchain.
A permissioned blockchain has properties of both private and public blockchains. If there is a need for the public to verify, then you should consider public permissioned blockchain.

A trusted consultant or company should walk through the process with your company and answer your doubts. The golden rule for companies is not to rush when you make any technology decision. This same theory works the same for the adoption of blockchain technology.

 

“Innovate your business with blockchain.
You will love the surprises that come with it.”

Anndy Lian Interviews Teng Theng Dar, Business Leader, Ambassador and tech evangelist “The best is yet to be.”

Anndy Lian Interviews Teng Theng Dar, Business Leader, Ambassador and tech evangelist “The best is yet to be.”

Anndy Lian: Good morning, everyone. I have invited Theng Dar for this interview. He is a business leader, and many know him as Singapore Non-Resident Ambassador to the Sultanate of Oman, and most importantly, he is my friend. It is my honour to have him in our segment.

Good morning Theng Dar. Can you tell the audience more about yourself? 

Theng Dar: My name is Teng Theng Dar. I spent about 30 years living and working outside of Singapore. Mainly in the Asia region; Ten years plus each in Japan and Indonesia, four and half years each in Malaysia and Australia, including project time in the ASEAN region countries, especially Vietnam and Myanmar.

After I graduated from Waseda University in April 1979, immediately I started my first job in Tokyo, Japan, with a Japan MNC Kao Corporation (Then known as Kao Soap Co., Ltd).

Out of the 75 new recruits for the year, I was the only non-Japanese, and I stayed with the company for 13 years.

Over the years, I worked in various sectors like FMCG manufacturing and marketing, F&B, commodity trading, ICT, IoT and telecommunication infrastructure and biotechnology etc.

Anndy Lian: Can you share some highlights in your career?

Theng Dar: Sure. The highlights of my career would have to be my time with the Singapore Business Federation (SBF) as CEO in 2008 – 2011 when the whole world was plunged into chaos because of the global financial crisis.

As the voice of the business community, SBF in partnership with members of the uniquely Singapore tripartite body successfully weathered the challenge, and together  Singapore achieved a V-shaped recovery in the following year 2010.

During the same period, I also served as Chair of APEC Business Advisory Council during the APEC Year Singapore in 2009 and collectively, with representatives from 21 economies raised issues against the rising protectionism then and continued to promote the possibility of TPP.

This is the two in one experience that I appreciate the most as it was so demanding that I had to put in my all, and it really stretched my capacity to the maximum.

Anndy Lian: Your career paths are exciting, navigating from business to government. It is very similar to what I am experiencing now. Much of my work is outside of Singapore. Is this what you have planned for?

Theng Dar: Not by design but through series of career path changes and events, as well as my active participation in various regional business forums and dialogues that somehow led to my appointment as Singapore Non-Resident Ambassador to the Sultanate of Oman, Adviser, South East Asia Affairs, Shizuoka, Global Business Adviser of Miyagi Prefecture Governments, and Adviser to the School Of Applied Science, Temasek Polytechnic.

With Temasek Polytechnic, my current focus is on using it as the trusted platform and gateway to promote food security & smart city collaborations between Singapore & Japan and then to the ASEAN region.

Interestingly, I am doing what I dreamt of doing when I was still a young undergraduate, and also to do the things I wrote in my graduate thesis.

Life has been very kind to me.

Anndy Lian: Food security, as defined by the United Nations’ Committee on World Food Security, means that all people, at all times, have physical, social, and economic access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food that meets their food preferences and dietary needs for an active and healthy life. I understand that you have been a strong voice in food security matters. What are you working on right now? 

Theng Dar: In the past four years, I have been focusing on seeking collaboration opportunities linked to food security (I. e. aquaculture & urban farming)

By working with Temasek Polytechnic as the technical gateway and platform, my focus has been in the development of agri-business & R&D community to enable co-development and business collaborations to achieve Singapore Vision 30 by 30, and thereafter expand overseas to contribute to UN Sustainable Development Goal 1 – no poverty, Goal 2 – zero hunger, Goal 11 – Sustainable cities and communities, Goal 12 – responsible consumption and production, and Goal 17 – Partnerships for the goals.

Although delayed by Covid19, one exciting outcome is the inaugural Singapore Shizuoka Agrifood Forum held on Nov 17th, 2020.

Anndy Lian: Thanks for sharing, and do you think companies are ready to fork our extra cost to increase security from their productions? Do you also feel the governmental bodies and private companies have aligned goals on this?

Theng Dar: If we take food security as the specific example for consideration, then it is not just about cost but rather food loss/ food wastage and sustainable food supplies.

In agribusiness, we are still trying to measure food loss and food wastage and their impact on food cost and pricing. Either at pre-farmgate or post-farmgate, the “loss” or “waste” percentage can go as high as 30 – 50%. Next is the wastage at retail and consumption level where food waste is suggested to be between 10 – 30%.

All in all, with the current mode of operating the supply chain for foods, we are looking at a very alarming rate of losses/wastes.

Anndy Lian: Food sustainability is about generating food at a productivity level that is enough to maintain the human population. In years to come, we will face food scarcity. Future food like lab-grown beef has been much talked about; people are worried about its source, how it is produced etc. Do you think technology implementation, e.g. Blockchain + IoT connectivity helps in providing more trust for the consumers?

Theng Dar: By 2050, the world population is projected to reach more than 9 billion people but based on various studies and forecasts, food production capacity using traditional methods will not be able to meet the increase in demand.

We are looking at a severe food crisis in the making if farming practices do not adopt technology to grow more with less with assured quality.

With the above as a backdrop, combined with AI, big data, and analytics, I see blockchain technology as one enabling technology to help reduce “loss and waste”, create a supply chain of trust that can deliver speed in transactions involving multiple parties. In so doing,  time and cost of supply chain can be further compressed.

Anndy Lian: Having chatted on various aspects, can you share with us how you see blockchain technology? What is the future like?

Theng Dar: Assuming that the required hard infrastructure is already in place, blockchain technology has the potential to deliver great impact in the way businesses are done and also in the way we consume health services.

(1) How blockchain can help to remove the administration pains associated with KYC? This should be able to benefit the regulators, financial institutions, and users by reducing the time and manpower needed to complete the process.

(2) How can the adoption of blockchain help ensure product traceability? This is one tremendous contribution that blockchain technology can deliver to food security and food safety and thus enabling the concept of “farm to table” to support quality and safe foods assurance. By the way, this will also enable a food supply chain with speed and security in inspections etc., and thus potentially achieve less food spoilage in transit.

(3) How blockchain technology can be done to help speed up property transactions?

(4) In health services, how blockchain technology can be applied to secure medical records and enable the delivery of personalised health records for better and accurate healthcare services in preparation for the tsunami of aging population. And many more.

That’s the bright and better future for all of us if the blockchain technology can be better applied in the areas where better and higher economical values can be generated by creating new efficient ways of doing things and higher value and quality jobs are then done by humans.

Anndy Lian: Do you think this pandemic is a wake up for many who did not digitise themselves? Do you think a level of decentralised post-pandemic will safeguard us in the event of another crisis?

Theng Dar: I do not think this needs further discussion. The reality is before all of us. As we advance, both IR4 and the preference of the future workforce will give pressure for businesses to digitise. On top of that, I believe we need to adopt a new way of doing business – i. e.  How to operate our business on a permanent pandemic ready mode. If the answer is yes, then digitalising is the way to go.

Anndy Lian: Last but not least, please share an inspiring quote.

Theng Dar: It is my pleasure.

“The best is yet to be.”

Anndy Lian: Thanks for spending time with us today. I hope all of you like my moderation. Next week, Melody or Jenny will take interview another expert. Stay tune at www.blockcast.cc/interviews.

FOMA Magazine Feature Interview with Anndy Lian on Art and Blockchain: “In code, we trust art. Heading global with blockchain.”

FOMA Magazine Feature Interview with Anndy Lian on Art and Blockchain: “In code, we trust art. Heading global with blockchain.”

Thank you FOMA Magzine for the interview. It is always good to share how blockchain can be adopted. Art industry will definitely benefit from this technology.

 

 

Art is part of our lives, we see them in all shapes and forms. Technology plays a similar part in our lives too, in every step we make.

I have travelled around the world meeting people and advocating blockchain technology since 2017. During this period, I have managed to convince governments, government-linked companies, schools and also traditional businesses to embark on the technology journey. Many of them are happy with the decision and especially during this COVID period, they have benefited more than before as the world has gone into the digital space and blockchain been the technology that enhances security plays a vital role.

In this article, I would like to share about the art industry and how digitalising their work will bring them more good than staying traditional.

 

What is art?

To me, art is an expression of human creative skills and imagination. It is typically in a form of painting, sculpture or music, literature or dance. Ultimately, it expresses the artist’s conceptual ideas, technical skills and creatively intended to be appealing to the senses and emotions.

 

How big is the art industry?

The global art market grew 6% in 2018 to $67.4 billion in sales, according to economist Clare McAndrew’s report “The Art Market 2019,” released by Art Basel and UBS on Friday. That total makes 2018 the second-biggest year for the art market in the past decade, trailing only 2014 when sales totaled $68.2 billion according to statistics obtained from Artsy.

Art on the secondary market is often sold at an auction house. The artwork will be made available to the public and anyone can observe the price and buy it. Many times, gallery owners also bid at the auction to control the market price and value. I believe that a combination of art and technology will help to increase transparency in the industry. Blockchain can play a big part in it.

 

Going virtual

In the current pandemic times, everyone is encouraged not to travel. I do see that art is going digital too. Rembrandt, Miro, Banksy fetch millions at Sotheby’s virtual art auction. This is their new live stream auction format featured many pieces of artwork spanning five centuries of art history. This event attracted bidders from all over the world and managed by auction house’s staff from New York, London and Hong Office offices. Technology enables the sale. Good art waits for no man, be it virtual or physical.

 

What is the future for art?

As we move a step ahead on art and technology. I want to share a few things.

  1. NFT Collectibles Art

NFT stands for non-fungible tokens. Tokens are not mutually interchangeable and each token is different, as opposed to regular cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Litecoin that are fungible. These characteristics make NFT tokens perfect for verifying the ownership of unique digital items, like crypto collectables and digital art.

  1. Blockchain Tracking and Tracing + Authenticity

As mentioned, tokens can able verifications of digital collectables. It can also track, trace and even verify physical artwork as well through the use of blockchain technology, which is the underlying technology that supports tokens and cryptocurrencies. The ability to authenticate the artwork on the spot through the records that are captured on the blockchain can give buyers confidence in the transaction and may also increase the value of the artwork as everything about the artwork from maintenance records to where they were kept were all made available.

  1. Global Marketplace+

Right now we are in a global market for art trading and auctions, managed by leading auction houses. I hope in time to come, a decentralised marketplace on blockchain and cryptocurrencies can recreate into a marketplace+ and go onto the mainstream art world. There will be no middlemen, artwork can be verified immediately on chain and transacted directly using cryptocurrencies. Artwork can be sold in any parts of the world in a more trusted environment. This would be the ideal scenario.

 

“In code, we trust art.

Heading global with blockchain.”
