Hackernoon Meet the Writer Anndy Lian: “Let’s work together to make crypto better”

This story is a part of Hacker Noon’s Meet the Writer series of interviews. The series is intended for tech professionals contributing the most insightful Hacker Noon stories to share more about their writing habits, ideas, and professional background (and maybe a hobby or two).

If you too would like to start contributing to Hacker Noon, you can do so here.

 

So let’s start! Tell us a bit about yourself. For example, name, profession, and personal interests.

My name is Anndy. I’m a business strategist and experienced serial entrepreneur with over 15 years of experience in Asia. I’ve worked in various industries for local, international, and publicly traded companies. I am currently Chairman of BigONE Exchange and Chief Digital Advisor at the Mongolian Productivity Organisation.

I’ve also written a best-selling book titled “Blockchain Revolution 2030”. With my co-authors, we share insights on how blockchain technology plays an important foundation for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

I recently joined the EG Association, a social impact-driven organization that aims to use cryptocurrency to do good. To date, we have deployed more than $3 million supporting social impact initiatives on the ground.

 

Interesting! What was your latest Hackernoon Top story about?

My recent article focused on the rise of so-called reflective tokens, which are starting to be used more and more by crypto startups, such as SafeMoon. The tokenomics model differs significantly from that of other DeFi tokens. In simple terms it works by automatically charging a tax, which is usually 10% on each transaction.

The reflection mechanism is a relatively new concept in cryptocurrency circles, and it still requires a lot of fine-tuning before it can be widely adopted by other projects. However, in principle, it reduces panic selling to a bare minimum, which could be significant for the DeFi industry.

 

Do you usually write on similar topics? If not, what do you usually write about?

I think it’s important to write about the diversity of subjects in the blockchain and crypto industry, as it’s a sector that growing so quickly and with a lot of opportunities. I’m fascinated about ‘connecting the dots’ between business and technology, a great example being the use of DeFi and NFTs in developing an open metaverse.

 

Great! What is your usual writing routine like (if you have one?)

Before starting to write I believe it’s important to have a routine for reading each day. I try to find time to catch up with the main news headlines, as well as the main crypto news sites like Cointelegraph. Then when I come to writing I find that reading helps make my articles both accessible and valuable. I also get my inspiration from the governments that I am advising, their problems and questions become part of my writing content too.

 

Being a writer in tech can be a challenge. It’s not often our main role, but an addition to another one. What is the biggest challenge you have when it comes to writing?

The challenge is often one of translation, explaining technical details around say a new form of tokenomics to an interested but non-technical audience such as crypto investors.

 

What is the next thing you hope to achieve in your career?

I want to share the right kind of crypto knowledge with people. Right now many of the people I see in various communities are not being real. Some of them want their government to be decentralized, others want to be rich overnight by doing nothing, then some others are just here to create FUDs. If proper information is being shared and the users are aware of what is really happening, such ‘behaviours’ would be minimised.

Maybe this is not a career goal, it is more like an industry-wide goal that I set for myself.

 

Wow, that’s admirable. Now, something more casual: What is your guilty pleasure of choice?

Since getting grounded and not being able to travel, I have been very involved in donations and charitable works. In fact, those who know me, know that I am donating more than I spend. My guilty pleasure, for now, is walking into Hermes, buying a few pairs of shoes instead of donating. Then again, Zoom meetings did not need me to travel much, maybe a comfortable Uniqlo t-shirt would do just fine.

 

Do you have a non-tech-related hobby? If yes, what is it?

I enjoy travelling, meeting new people from all walks of life, and sharing ideas.

 

What can the Hacker Noon community expect to read from you next?

I’m always on the lookout for new topics in crypto and blockchain that illuminate and inspire my readers! I might be talking more about metaverse and gameFI. Let’s see.

 

#Thanks for taking the time to join our “Meet the writer” series. It was a pleasure. Do you have any closing words?

“The time is always right to do the right things.” I hope to gather more like-minded people to do that together for the crypto industry. Let’s work together to make crypto better!

Lastly, it’s great to join the Hacker Noon community and to share my writing on crypto and blockchain.

Mid-Day Mumbai News: How reflective tokens and real-world use cases can work together

Mid-Day Mumbai News: How reflective tokens and real-world use cases can work together

Mumbai`s homegrown newspaper – Mid-Day is a 41-year-old brand. Thank you for listening to my inputs.

The media outlet has quoted my points on how reflective tokens and real-world use cases can work together. Taking Dogecola as an example. The Cola sold will be used as a form of funds to support its crypto pricing. The added-on elements such as GameFI and NFT would create a better bond and interaction between the brand and the consumers.

The combination may not be rocket science but they are certainly making traditional companies think about how tokenization would work for their business.

_____________________________________________________________

Why DogeCola Is the Reflective Token To Watch

Following news that the ‘king’ of meme coins Dogecoin has relaunched its foundation with plans to become a serious global cryptocurrency, is DogeCola ‘on trend’ as a  meme coin worth taking seriously? Meme coins are tokens backed by crypto influencers and investors have rapidly increased in popularity. CoinMarketCap estimated there were more than 5,000 meme coins available to investors by late June. Created as a joke meme back in 2013 Dogecoin started the trend, rising to prominence after Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted about the novel token in April 2019, replying to a tweet saying “Dogecoin might be my fav cryptocurrency. It’s pretty cool.”

While meme coins are a type of cryptocurrency, a key difference between the likes of Dogecoin and currencies like Bitcoin, comes down to utility. Namely that most meme coins, serve no real-world purpose. Even more reason why DogeCola, which is both a reflective token and a soft drink brand, has such potential to grow the meme coin market more sustainably in the future. In just the past week the cola-branded meme token, has delivered on its promise of distributing 1,000 sample cans of the fizzy drink to its token holders. And as its doubling-down on its listing on BigONE exchange with a staking activity, it’s certainly appears worth a closer look.

In this article we’ll therefore review how the ‘reflective’ token mechanism works to maintain price stability, the role the DogeCola soft drink brand plays in its growth, and what this could mean for the chances of success in such a fast-moving meme-market place.

 

Taking a look ‘under the hood’ of DogeCola

Auto-boost function: The auto-boost feature helps distinguishes DogeCola from the other standard meme tokens on the market. The DogeCola project’s developers added this feature to prevent the all too common ‘pump and dump’ associated with meme tokens. It was designed to make variable repurchasing and token burns based on the transaction volume every 24 hours. The goal is to keep the price of DogeCola high by burning tokens and reducing supply every time a sale is made with the tokens.

Reflection mechanism: The reflection mechanism means the tokens are self-generating and aim to discourage selling by promoting a ‘hold and earn’ use culture. By implementing a reflective mechanism in the token’s smart contract, all transactions involving tokens are ‘taxed’, and rewards are distributed evenly among holders. The DogeCola team does this to encourage the holding their tokens, and the commission on sales is much higher to prevent whales from dumping and driving the price down

Both the auto-boost and reflection mechanism are underpinned by a buy and sell fee structure: on buying 6% is set aside for the auto-boost function, with 2% going reflection to holders and 4% of marketing. While on sales, 7% is for auto-boost function, 7% for reflection to holders and again, 4% allocated to marketing.

Branded cola drink: The DogeCola team has begun the process of bringing their soft drink brand to the market as soon as possible. In a recent interview the DogeCola project’s lead developer, Chris, confirmed that the primary goal is to have the soft drinks readily available for purchase in stores, within the next three to six months. In the meantime, DogeCola token holders this week snapped up the first 1,000 samples. As Jason McLeod of the community-based #stopelon crypto initiative, commented on Twitter: “I definitely think this is the way crypto will go in the future. For me, it’s all about that link from crypto to ‘everyday’ people in the ‘real’ world.” The DogeCola team also plans to fight plastic pollution caused by corporations like Coca Cola, using a community-led vote to determine which eco-charities to support – enhancing their ‘disruptive’ branding in the process.

 

What the crypto experts think of DogeCola?

At the launch of DogeCola in July, Chris the lead dev and founder proclaimed: “If you like Coca Cola, if you like Dogecoin, then you will love DogeCola.”  While the meme coin has risen in price by 556.1% from listing on CoinGecko to its all-time high, with the current price 500% from the listing price, its already has some push back from within its 10K strong international Telegram community. “Please know that you are in a project with a team that many times literally does not sleep in 72 hours; please do not look at x minutes candles in DogeCola; try to be patient, intelligent, trust the process and stick to your guts and vision,” said @Freejo1 in response to such jitters.

Jason Suttie, CMO of Bumper, a new protocol designed to protect the value of your crypto says: “What I find most exciting about projects like DogeCola is the visibility it’s bringing to the crypto space from the general public. Everybody knows Cola, many non-crypto people have now heard about Dogecoin. DogeCola creates a connection between a physical and virtual object which starts to make crypto less scary for the uninitiated. It’s through clever projects like this that crypto will make big steps toward mass adoption.”

Chairman of BigONE, Anndy Lian, says he believes that DogeCola being based on a reflective token mechanism and with a real-world use has a clear advantage in the crypto marketplace: “We are excited to list DogeCola on the BigONE exchange because it’s ticked all the boxes – a smart reflective token mechanism, branded cola drink, a great development team with passionate community behind it.” Certainly, this is supported by news that the team has succeeded in reaching 20k token holders just a couple of days after their CoinMarketCap airdrop on August 27th. And with a DogeCola sponsored NSCAR driver due to be announced shortly to further promote growth, this reflective token is surely one to watch out for.

Chained Together: How Blockchain is Improving Supply Chains

Chained Together: How Blockchain is Improving Supply Chains

Chained Together: How Blockchain is Improving Supply Chains is an online event organized by the Boston Blockchain Association.

Blockchain is radically improving supply chains by making products easier to track, from the raw materials to the finished goods.

Imagine a world where you’ll be able to see not just where your coffee was grown or your iPhone was assembled, but every step in the process, all recorded on a transparent blockchain.

This has huge implications for everything from fair trade and fair wages, to making companies and governments far more efficient.

The Boston Blockchain Association has put together a distinguished panel of supply chain and blockchain experts to give all a state of where the industry stands today, including:

Leanne Kemp, CEO and Founder of Everledger: Perhaps the most well-known blockchain + supply chain project in the world, Everledger started as an immutable ledger for diamond identification and transaction verification — and has grown into a platform for measuring the “value chain” of everything from rare earth metals to designer handbags:
