Channel News Asia: Money Mind- Trends: NFT Boom (3 April 2021, 10.30pm)

Money Mind tells you how to make the most of your money with tips for investors, business ideas for businessmen and analysis of the economy, companies, markets, financial products and trends. In this segment of Money Mind, Pamela On tells us more about the current NFT trends.

The following experts shared their take about NFT on Money Mind: Journey Li, APAC Marketing Manager, Elliptic; Anndy Lian, Advisory Board Member, Hyundai DAC; Kelvin Goh, Head of Wealth Advisory, OCBC & Cao Yin, NFT Collector.

A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unit of data stored on a blockchain (a digital ledger) which can represent a unique digital item like art. An NFT is a cryptographic token, but unlike cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and many network or utility tokens, NFTs are not mutually interchangeable, i.e. not fungible. (Wikipedia).

The buyer of the NFT does not gain exclusive access to the work, nor does the buyer gain possession of the “original” digital file. A person who uploads a certain work as an NFT does not have to prove that they are the original artist, and there have been numerous cases where art was used for NFTs without the creator’s permission.

Twitter’s founder Jack Dorsey has promoted an NFT of the first-ever tweet, with bids hitting $2.5m. Christie’s sale of an NFT by digital artist Beeple for $69m (£50m) set a new record for digital art.

“NFTs are not just for purely for collectables, right now at this current moment especially, I see a lot of these big purchases and big valuation. This is actually part of a process to let people know what NFT is.” – Anndy Lian

While Anndy sees this as an awareness process right now, Cao Yin explains his point of view as a collector.

“The original reason for collecting these items (NFTs) is to collect, and not to transact, and not to “buy low, sell high” and profit from it.”- Cao Yin

Investments in Innovation- 2021 Trends: Anndy Lian Commented “We should look into ASEAN.”

Investments in Innovation- 2021 Trends: Anndy Lian Commented “We should look into ASEAN.”

Day 4 of Digital Week Online Spring 2021 is “Innovation Day”. Investments and innovation work closely together. The panel “Investments in innovations – 2021 trends” has brought in speakers from different background.

Speakers:
Richard Wang, Draper Dragon Fund
Aly Madhavji, Blockchain Founders Fund
Nisa Amoils, Managing Partner of A100x Ventures X
Anndy Lian, Advisory Board Member, Hyundai DAC; Member of Gyeongsangbuk-do Blockchain Special Committee

Moderator:
Gordon Einstein, Founding Partner of CryptoLaw Partners

“COVID19 has changed mindsets, it brings businesses out of their comfort zones. It also gives traditional businesses a chance to adopt new technologies, maybe crypto too.” Anndy Lian said. Gordon Einstein echoed by saying “Crisis is an opportunity for change.”

The panel also discussed how the west and east look at innovation. Richard Wang commented and quoting AI as an example. “USA has better technology in term of the algorithm. China has a good market. they have a huge market. But I do believe we have a substantial advantage over USA companies.” Aly Madhavji countered by saying data availability and protection is the key. “China has a different philosophy, and they actually tend to look at it more collectively. Their government can help to enable access to major companies to that data. But in Europe, it is very difficult to do these things.”

Lastly, Gordan asked where are the other opportunities that we should look out for. Nisa Amoils mentioned South East Asia and Africa. Anndy Lian also agreed with Nisa. “We should look at ASEAN as a bloc, there is a population of 700 million. This will be a big region for adoption and business for innovation.”

Thanks Koin Bülteni for taking my comments on short term Bitcoin trends “May See a Decrease in Price.”

Thanks Koin Bülteni for taking my comments on short term Bitcoin trends “May See a Decrease in Price.”

Thanks İlkyaz Taşdemir, editor of Koin Bülteni for taking in my comments on my observations for Bitcoin.

Quoted from the article:

“Anndy Lian , who works in the field of blockchain , is also one of those waiting for dump. Lian explained that Bitcoin whales are transferring money to various exchanges, so a dump scenario can be seen in the short term. However, he said that the BTC price could go down as well.”

 

Original article in Turkish:

Ki Young: Bitcoin Balinaları Harekete Geçti, Dump Gelebilir

CryptoQuant CEO’su, Bitcoin balinalarının harekete geçtiğini söyledi ve yakında dump gelebilme ihtimaline karşı yatırımcıları uyardı. CEO’ya göre dump, kısa vadede gerçekleşebilir.

CryptoQuant CEO’su Ki Young Ju, yeni Bitcoin yorumuyla yatırımcıları dump konusunda uyardı. Tavsiye dışı olarak analizlerini aktaran CEO, Bitcoin balinalarının borsalara yüklü miktarda para aktardığını gösterdi. Paylaştığı grafikteki kırmızı danger zone‘a dikkat çeken Ki Young, kısa vadede dump geleceğine inandığını belirtti.

“All Exchanges Inflow Mean (144-block MA / Tüm borsalara yapılan giriş akışının ortalaması) 2 BTC’yi geçti. Sanırım tehlikeli bir bölgedeyiz. Balinalar borsalarda aktif olduğunda fiyat muhtemelen yatay seyredecek veya düşecektir.”

26 Kasım tarihinde de All Exchanges Inflow Mean’i (144-block MA) paylaşarak düzeltme beklediğini söyleyen CEO, şunları söylemişti:

“Bitcoin’e daha fazla düzeltme gelebilir. All Exchanges Inflow Mean hala yüksek. BTC, Aralık ayına kadar 20 bin doları kıracaktır.”

Balinalar altcoin alıyor olabilir mi?
Bitcoin maksimalisti ve melek yatırımcı WhalePanda, Ki Young’un açıklamasına farklı bir bakış açısı getirdi. WhalePanda, balinalar için “Belki de altcoin alıyorlardır.” yorumunda bulundu.

John Cho isimli bir kullanıcı da WhalePanda gibi altcoin konusuna değinerek bir yorum getirdi. Cho, balinaların altcoinlere yönelmiş olabileceğini öne sürerek “Sanırım altcoinlerde satış yapmak istiyorlar.” dedi.

Blockchain alanında çalışmaları bulunan Anndy Lian da dump bekleyenlerden. Lian, Bitcoin balinalarının çeşitli borsalara para transfer ettiğini, bu nedenle kısa vadede bir dump senaryosu görülebileceğini açıkladı. Bununla birlikte, BTC fiyatının da düşüşe geçebileceğini söyledi.

 

 

Translated from Turkish into English:

Ki Young: Bitcoin Whales Take Action, Dump May Come

The CryptoQuant CEO said Bitcoin whales are on the move and warned investors of the possibility of a dump soon . According to the CEO, dump can happen in the short term.

CryptoQuant CEO Ki Young Ju has warned investors of dumping with his new Bitcoin comment . Transferring his analysis without advice, the CEO showed that Bitcoin whales are transferring large amounts of money to the stock markets. Drawing attention to the red danger zone in the graphic he shared , Ki Young stated that he believes dump will come in the short term.

“ All Exchanges Inflow Mean (144-block MA / Average of inflow to all exchanges) exceeded 2 BTC. I think we are in a dangerous area. When the whales are active on the stock market, the price will likely go sideways or drop.

Stating that he is waiting for a correction by sharing All Exchanges Inflow Mean (144-block MA) on November 26, the CEO said:

“More corrections may come to Bitcoin. All Exchanges Inflow Mean is still high. BTC will break $ 20,000 by December. ”

Could whales be buying altcoins?
Bitcoin maximalist and angel investor WhalePanda brought a different perspective to Ki Young’s statement. WhalePanda says for the whales, “ Maybe they are buying altcoins. He commented .

A user named John Cho also made a comment by mentioning the subject of altcoin like WhalePanda. “ I think they want to sell in altcoins, ” Cho said, suggesting that the whales may have turned to altcoins. ” He said .

Anndy Lian , who works in the field of blockchain , is also one of those waiting for dump. Lian explained that Bitcoin whales are transferring money to various exchanges, so a dump scenario can be seen in the short term. However, he said that the BTC price could go down as well.
