Who is Anndy Lian? How Does he Turn You Into an NFT Hero?

Who is Anndy Lian? How Does he Turn You Into an NFT Hero?

Anndy Lian is a serial entrepreneur based in Singapore. He is always trying to work hard in the crypto and blockchain industry. When I first met him, he was actively investing in Layer 1 blockchains. Then he was advising a sovereign wealth fund and was the chairperson at an Esports association. He is always busy.

 

His journey started in 2017 during the ICO times. He started one of the earliest supply chain blockchain companies back then and moved on to advising governments as he felt that there were too many dodgy businesses going on in the crypto scene.

 

He is a fund manager and partner at a local capital market services licensed firm. He is a philanthropist, giving back to society by donating and spending time serving his Singapore community. His servant leadership and attitude is well-liked by his peers.

 

His latest book, “NFT: From Zero to Hero”, is aligned with what he does. He likes the technology behind NFT and never likes how projects are managing NFTs as if it is like a valueless Ponzi scheme. That is also why Anndy chooses to launch the book after the hype and not during the hype. He believes that this is the right time to launch a book to tell everyone about the good and bad of NFT and how the market is changing and building stronger than ever at the same time.

 

During this interview, he emphasized a few points. Firstly, he wants all to know that mastering the logic behind NFT is not difficult. You need only the correct mindset and set up clear purposes when creating the NFTs. There is also a lot of information online for you to read about, and there is no reason why you cannot understand it.

 

Secondly, he said that there are many good tools online to help you decide what you can consider buying. He has spent time using some of the tools and listed a handful in his book that he thinks are useful. “Instead of guessing what NFT to buy, use the statistics to aid your decision,” Anndy said.

 

Anndy also went on to share that data could be contradicting. For example, 10,000 NFTs were sold, but when you look at the on-chain wallet addresses, only 10 of them exist. These are the small details you need to catch when making a decision.

 

Thirdly, he wants people who read his book and look at the trends ahead. The general public knowledge is very superficial. Many people think that NFT is a quick money scheme and we are purely selling “air”. “The fact that NFT is not just about a jpeg profile picture is not known to many. This is disturbing.”

 

According to Anndy, we can look at creating medical platforms using NFTs and empowering patients with the ability to control their medical records. We can look at digitizing land title deeds using NFT too. “The NFT usage scenarios are limitless.”

 

I also took the chance to ask Anndy what we should invest in next. He said to follow the simple rules- Consider investing in projects with good utility, strong community, and always building. “If they do not have the above, there is no need to consider who is on their cap table and how strong their team is. Assuming they have a working tech solution.”

 

Lian added that some people said that investing in Layer 1 blockchain is a sure win is totally wrong. He said starting layer 1 is not difficult; sustaining it with good usage is the challenging part. You need a lot more money to make it work compared to layer 2.

 

He said that, similarly, some people hate meme coins and said they have no value. “I don’t see eye to eye on this. The value of a meme coin is in its community and the core team. If the community is strong, anything can happen.” He added that bad management is one of the core reasons why meme coins fail. “The tell-tale signs are obvious.”

 

Just like the same old Anndy we see on Twitter. He ended by saying, “not financial advice”.

 

Anndy Lian’s new book has sold more than 8,000 copies during its launch at Bybit NFT marketplace. He has subsequently listed them on leading platforms like Amazon and Google books. At the point of this interview, he told me that he had appointed a Singapore distributor who would put his books in major bookstores in the South East Asia region.

 

I also read that he was awarded an Honorary Doctoral Degree by the Academic Council of Ulaanbaatar Erdem University in recognition of his contribution to the development of productivity science in Mongolia. He is also completing his PhD soon.

 

Congratulations Anndy.

 

The Future of NFTs

 

A number of countries are now actively working on regulatory frameworks for NFT assets, strengthening anti-fraud and anti-manipulation audits of projects, determining the business core of each platform, and solving financial security issues such as illegal fundraising and false fraud.

 

Nowadays, NFT financial tools are becoming more and more abundant, and the scale of financial derivatives is steadily increasing. At the same time, major public chains are actively upgrading, expanding, and building their own ecological frameworks to provide underlying support for the production, confirmation, pricing, circulation, and traceability of NFT assets. The NFT industry is gradually exploring a development path suitable for blockchain assets.

 

Due to the short development history of NFTs, we are still in the industry’s infancy, but we can still see its rapid development and gradual maturity. It is believed that under the transformation of the market, the improvement of supervision, and the gradual improvement of the ecosystem, the future of NFTs will never be just about hype but will become an indispensable part of future technological life.

 

The NFT space is fast-changing. While writing this, new NFT projects are popping up every day. From the Busan Metropolitan Government in Korea announcing an NFT conference to the International Cricket Council launching cricket NFTs to CoinRunners crowdfunding a movie by selling NFTs.

 

The few consistent NFT trends over the past year have been their steady growth, the rising interest in them, and their ever-expanding applications.

 

The future these NFT trends depict is an interesting one. While many people are concerned about the implications of the metaverse and the rise of AI, it’s a future full of possibilities.

 

It’s a future that bridges the gap between consumers and creators gives value and security to digital assets, and one which, for better or for worse, will shake up the world.

 

The future is bright, but the road is tortuous. The NFT market will eventually mature and deliver on its promise.

 

Your new asset is in the digital world.

Who owns the most Jasmy crypto? High concentration among top 10 holders as price of Japan’s bitcoin plumbs new depths

Who owns the most Jasmy crypto? High concentration among top 10 holders as price of Japan’s bitcoin plumbs new depths

JasmyCoin (JASMY) has been on a bear run for over a year now, falling by more than 99% since peaking for the last time in May 2021. As of 11 November, the coin was valued at $0.0041.

Despite a downfall in JASMY price action, the token has been seeing a surge in active addresses. Let’s have a closer look at who owns the most JASMY crypto.

What is JASMY?

Jasmy is a Japanese internet of things (IoT) company that aims to make data sharing safer, and more decentralised and democratised. It specialises in the safe buying and selling of personal data. It was founded in April 2016 by Kunitake Ando and Kazumasa Sato, two former Sony executives, and Hiroshi Harada, a former employee at KPMG.

Harada, who serves as the platform’s CFO, told Binance in an interview in September 2022:

“Jasmy’s mission is to create a mechanism/platform which allows all users to take ownership of their own data in a secure and private manner. Instead of letting a handful of big tech corporations take control of such sensitive data, Jasmy aims to help enable a world where everyone can feel safe and secure about the use of their own data.”

The platform allows users to:

  • Store and control their data in a safe and secure environment
  • Safely and securely manage and control their devices
  • Provide safe and secure use of their data under clear rules

Jasmy’s Personal Data Locker (PDL) provides users with full ownership over their personal data while its Secure Knowledge Communicator (SKC) is responsible for the achievement of data democracy.

The platform promises to provide its customers with an IoT platform that will help them manage their IoT data securely and efficiently; IoT devices and services that will help customers with the development and maintenance of their IoT platforms and thorough data analysis which will be used for the further improvement of the platform.

Jasmy’s native token, JasmyCoin (JASMY), is used by companies that wish to purchase the users’ data stored on the platform. The token can also be used by users as investment, for governance and metaverse utility. JASMY was built on the Ethereum (ETH) ecosystem and is an ERC-20 token.

JASMY was launched at the end of October 2021 and has been dubbed  as “Japan’s bitcoin”.

JASMY supply explained

According to data provided by CoinMarketCap, JASMY has a maximum and total supply of 50 billion coins. This makes the coin a deflationary asset, similar to bitcoin (BTC), due to the limit on how many coins can be mined.

As of 11 November 2022, the token had a circulating supply surpassing 4.7 billion and a market capitalisation of $19.4m.

JASMY was Japan’s first ever legally approved cryptocurrency as the country had imposed a strict regulation for this market. It was listed on the Japanese crypto exchange BITpoint on 27 October 2021.

The cryptocurrency was met with a lot of enthusiasm upon its launch, skyrocketing by more than 230% in four days from $1.3024 on 12 February 2021 to $4.2929 – an all-time high following its listing on the crypto exchange Gate.io.

After the fast surge, the token lost over 58% of its value falling to $1.7851 by 22 February 2021, but managed to regain 67% of its value soon after, reaching $2.9628 on 2 March 2021.

JASMY grew past the $2 barrier once again on 9 March 2021 as the platform announced it had joined GitHub, thus providing a space where its users could discuss upcoming projects, news and bugs.

By 5 May 2021, however, the coin lost around 50% of its value, falling to $1.0965 before seeing a mini-surge on the following day and rising to $2.1586. The bullish price action did not last long. The coin entered a bear run, falling by 95% in the following weeks and reaching $0.05456 on 20 June 2021.

Since then, the coin was unable to reach previous highs, falling by an additional 92.4% to $0.004122 as of 11 November 2022.

Who owns the most JASMY crypto?

In the past two months, JASMY lost over 57% of its value, falling from $0.009717 on 10 September 2022 to $0.004122 on 11 November 2022. Despite the continued bear trend, token concertation among the top 10 JASMY holders remained high.

Data published on Sanbase showed that the number of active JASMY token addresses spiked to 673 on 30 October from 224 the day before. The number of active JASMY holders spiked once again on 9 November to 719 from a low of 273 on 7 November 2022.

So, who has the most JASMY tokens? Data provided by etherscan.io showed that there are 36,169 JASMY holders in total. The 10 biggest JASMY holders, as of 11 November, collectively owned 51.33% of the total token supply in circulation, meanwhile the top 100 owned 85.44%.

The website noted that the top account holding the most JASMY tokens was the world’s biggest cryptocurrency exchange Binance (BNB). Binance owned 23.43% of the total supply, which amounted to 11.7 billion JASMY coins worth around $48,500, as of 11 November. It’s likely that the exchange is holding the tokens on behalf of its users.

The second on etherscan’s top holders of JASMY list was crypto exchange Mexc.com. It owned 5.86% of the total supply, amounting to 2.9 billion tokens. Mexc.com could own JASMY tokens on behalf of its users.

The third biggest JASMY account was Jasmy Deployer which held 4.8% of the tokens’ total supply amounting  to 2.4 billion coins. The fourth and fifth biggest JASMY holders were two anonymous wallets holding 4.12% (1.34 billion coins) and 2.7% (1.29 billion coins) of the tokens’ total supply respectively.

Analyst views on Jasmy’s tokenomics

Knowing who owns the most JASMY tokens can be of use to many retail investors and traders, Anndy Lian, chief digital advisor at the Mongolian Productivity Organisation and author of ‘NFT: From Zero to Hero’, told Capital.com:

“The concentration of tokens on exchanges on leading exchanges such as Binance is a confidence booster for many retail investors.

“JASMY has gained interest from some of the biggest names in Japan’s technology industry. Pansonic and VAIO have also partnered with JASMY. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the largest call centre in Japan, Transcosmos, used JASMY to secure its data. The big names using JASMY’s technology are a really attractive selling point for retail investors.”

Lian added that for JASMY to truly grow, the firm would need to showcase its technology and focus on revenue.

“After all, they are the first legally compliant Japanese crypto coin listed on the Japanese cryptocurrency exchange. Japanese law strictly governs cryptocurrency transactions subject to Financial Services Agency inspections. Being accountable by Japanese law, they need to walk away from fluff and hype and concentrate on real business first.”

Please note that analysts’ predictions and opinions can be wrong. The information about the biggest cryptocurrency whales and ownership concentration shouldn’t be used as a substitute for your own research. Always conduct your own due diligence before trading. And never invest or trade money you cannot afford to lose.

Positive Crypto Signs from U.K. and Hong Kong: Who is the New Crypto Hub?

Positive Crypto Signs from U.K. and Hong Kong: Who is the New Crypto Hub?

U.K. has a new pro-crypto PM and a new name for stablecoins

At the point of the news on the vote to recognize Crypto as regulated financial instruments, Bitcoin just spiked to $21,170. This aligns with the new crypto developments in the U.K. market. As part of the Financial Services and Markets Bill, the U.K. House of Commons, the lower house of Parliament, agreed on Tuesday to regulate cryptocurrency assets as financial instruments. The House of Lords, the upper house, will vote on the bill before it becomes law. This occurs as Rishi Sunak, who on Monday was appointed as the nation’s next prime minister, has a history of endorsing cryptocurrencies.

The local cryptocurrency sector, which recently celebrated Rishi Sunak’s election as the nation’s new prime minister, will likely applaud moves to grant legal legitimacy to digital assets. When Sunak served as the Boris Johnson administration’s finance minister, he presented the markets bill, which indirectly led to the stablecoin regulations.

The bill expands upon current stablecoin regulating provisions and uses the term “Digital Settlement Assets” (DSA) in place of “crypto assets,” moving away from the use of the phrase “crypto assets.” Stablecoins with a focus on payments that are cryptocurrencies tethered to the value of other assets like the U.S. dollar or gold were already covered by elements in the draft bill that would have extended existing restrictions to them.

According to Griffith, the financial services and city minister, the crypto provision “clarifies that crypto assets could be brought within the scope of the existing provisions” of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 relating to regulated financial activities. The crypto provision depends on the definition of “crypto asset” inserted by a new clause 14. The regulations might control cryptocurrency advertising and ban businesses that aren’t allowed to operate nationwide.

“The Treasury will consult on its approach with industry and stakeholders ahead of using the powers to ensure the framework reflects the unique benefits and risks posed by crypto activities,” Griffith said. He added: “The Treasury will consult on its approach with industry and stakeholders ahead of using the powers to ensure the framework reflects the unique benefits and risks posed by crypto activities,”

The Crypto and Digital Assets All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) provides a forum for parliamentarians, regulators and the U.K government to discuss challenges and opportunities relating to the crypto sector. This group, chaired by Scottish National Party member of Parliament (MP) Lisa Cameron, has issued a written statement to the media seeking regulatory clarity and business certainty. “U.K. crypto and digital asset firms desperately need clarity over the U.K.’s approach to crypto policy and for the government to deliver on its vision for the U.K. crypto sector,” Cameron said in the statement.

The legalization of cryptocurrencies and digital assets as financial instruments is still pending. Important requirements that must be met for the Bill include: Before the Bill receives final royal sanction from the next king, King Charles III, the House of Lords will need to accept or change it.

The U.K. government can assure financial stability and strong regulatory standards by recognizing the promise of this technology and regulating it at this time, allowing these new technologies to be employed in the future reliably and safely.

Hong Kong wants to be positioned as crypto hub, while Singapore pivots

A few years back, Hong Kong was on the right track to becoming a crypto hub. Then Hong Kong’s regulator, the Securities Futures Commission (SFC) knocked on doors. Exchanges were questioned about listing tokens that seemed like securities and also issued warnings about high leverages.

Fast forward to 2022, October 31, the Hong Kong government is exploring legalizing retail crypto trades. Financial Secretary Paul Chan announced in a keynote speech at the Hong Kong Fintech Week conference that authorities would begin a consultation process on providing retail investors with “a suitable degree of access” to virtual assets. “We want to make our policy stance clear to the global market, to demonstrate our determination to explore fintech with the global virtual asset community,” he added.

In contrast, Singapore is significantly restricting access to cryptocurrencies for individual investors after last year’s market collapse brought down several digital asset companies with ties to the Southeast Asian country and caused much greater losses throughout the industry. If you remember, many of the huger crypto companies moved from Singapore to Dubai, and now the same thing is happening again. Hong Kong appears to be the next hotspot for digital-asset enterprises, entrepreneurs, and investment.

Even the head of the central bank, Ravi Menon, admitted in a Bloomberg Television interview that some crypto enterprises with a retail concentration would leave the city-state, stating plainly, “We wish them good luck.”

Cryptocurrencies “play a supporting role in the broader digital asset ecosystem, and it would not be feasible to ban them,” the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) stated in a media statement. Singapore’s stand is very firm and has made it clear that they are not banning cryptocurrencies and is working towards reducing risks.

Positive signs

I see all these are positive signs. Singapore is planning ahead. Hong Kong is leaving some room going forward. U.K.’s plan is ambitious. Hong Kong seems like walking on a different path than China which has banned cryptocurrencies completely. People on the ground are now speculating that Hong Kong could be the outflow channel for the Chinese to start trading cryptocurrencies again.

The recognition of cryptocurrencies under proper regulations would go very far. I am optimistic about the outcomes. #anndylian
