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.”

Blockchains are not Immutable, Nothing is 100% Secure

Thanks, Albert Arroyo at CapitalBay.News for quoting me in his report.

I have also added another comment on Twitter on the same topic:

Enjoy your read and read more updates at www.anndy.com.

______

 

Binance CEO and co-founder, Changpeng Zhao has said something that could be utterly shocking for a large number of supporters of blockchain technology. In a tweet, on Thursday, CZ said that blockchains are not immutable, and nothing is 100% secure. He added that it was better to be transparent about the risks rather than hiding them.

Binance CEO

For the most part of the last decade, blockchain and crypto companies boasted of being part of the immutable technology, and Binance is no exception. In fact, a great number of users entered the crypto-blockchain industry allured by the immutability and security that it promised. CZ defended his statement saying that he loves blockchain technology, to a point that he could dedicate all of his time and energy to it.

CZ Binance

CZ’s remarks came in reaction to a report which stated that a hacker netted more than $5 million in the Ethereum Classic 51% attack. He further said,

CZ said

CZ’s comments might not only affect the popularity of blockchain technology but also raise questions on the legitimacy of cryptocurrencies. Crypto proponents have kept raving about the fact that digital currencies are immutable, despite the numerous attacks on crypto exchanges and networks. Though the Binance chief’s remarks may ruffle a few feathers, the positive is that this could open a door to questioning and discussions, which could only benefit the users.

Anndy Lian, an inter-governmental blockchain advisor, also agreed with CZ and added that nothing is 100% secure when there’s human involvement. However, he added that blockchain increases the degree of immutability.

Anndy Lian Shares “Ethereum Will Remain The Dominant DeFi Platform: Analyst Opinion”

Thanks CoinGenius for covering my comments made in the earlier article on DeFi and Ethereum.


Ethereum Will Remain The Dominant DeFi Platform: Analyst Opinion

Ethereum will remain the dominant Defi platform despite the attempts of other blockchains such as TRON and EOS of trying to catch up. Most of the total value locked into DeFi is locked in Ethereum based platforms and it seems that things are going to stay this way as per the Ethereum latest news.

The industry observers believe that Ethereum will remain the dominant Defi platform because the growth among Defi enabling blockchains will come from other network effects as well as utility and capacity. With Ethereum boasting the first-mover advantage and the rapidly growing, it will be the best place to be for DeFi. ETH is by far the most dominant blockchain according to the data from the DeFi pulse, accounting for 90% and 99% of the total value locked in DeFi platforms. Looking at the data, all of the 36 Defi platforms are based on ETH and out of the 4 billion now locked into these 36 platforms.

According to industry observers, this dominance will come not so much from ETH being superior but from it being the first platform to move and gain a decent base. According to Anndy Lian, the Singapore-based crypto advisor:

 “Ethereum has the first-mover advantage, as it has had at previous times in crypto history, from taking the lead in ICOs [initial coin offerings] and smart contracts and now DeFi.”

Lian noted that Ethereum has the biggest market cap in crypto and is one of the best testing platforms for the industry so if it cannot make Defi work, no one can. A spokesperson for the Maker Foundation said that Ethereum’s current success lies with the fact that it was able to build upon the activity on the blockchain which attracts even more users and more activity:

 “Scope, size and amount of activity on Ethereum are critical factors driving the DeFi ecosystem.”

The Maker Foundation spokesperson suggested that other blockchains that can interoperate with the build on top of ETH have the chance of expanding their market share:

 “Chains that can easily integrate or build across Ethereum should be able to take advantage of that activity and grow with it by providing scale for DeFi apps.”

The market shares of EOS and TRON will go upwards in the upcoming months as per the EOS newsletter and Anndy Lian isn’t sure how fast this growth will be:

 “The market share is starting to spread but it will be slow. Ethereum will take the lead till 2021 on DeFi while the rest are playing catch up.”

以太坊近期不会把40亿美元的DeFi宝座交给EOS

以太坊具有先发制人的优势,但Tron和EOS试图蚕食以太坊的统治地位。向以太坊2.0的过渡可能会进一步加强以太坊的主导地位。

DeFi(去中心化金融)的大部分总价值锁定(TVL)都被锁定在以太坊(ETH)平台上,短期内情况应该不会出现更改。

至于长期而言,业内观察人士表示以太坊仍将是DeFi平台的主导,即使其他区块链(如EOS和Tron)也会在一定程度上迎头赶上。

这是因为支持DeFi的区块链的增长不仅来自技术效用和容量,还来自网络效应。以太坊拥有先行者优势和快速发展的优势,很有可能,它将成为DeFi的“归宿”。

 

以太坊网络规则

以太坊是目前占主导地位的DeFi区块链。从DeFi Pulse获取数据定义审查,它似乎占DeFi平台总价值的90%-99%。

看看DeFi Pulse,它跟踪的36个DeFi平台中除了一个以外,其他平台都基于以太坊(另一个是比特币(Bitcoin,BTC))。在目前锁定在这36个平台上的40亿美元中,除1150万美元外,其余都在以太坊上。

为什么以太坊如此占主导地位?根据行业观察人士的说法,这种优势并不是来自以太坊在技术上的优势,而是因为它是第一个获得大规模基础的公司。

新加坡加密资产顾问兼作者Anndy Lian说:“以太坊拥有先行者优势,就像它在加密历史上的前几次一样,它在ICOs(首次发行硬币)和智能合约方面处于领先地位,现在又领先于DeFi。”

Lian还指出,以太坊在加密领域拥有第二大市值,是业界最好的测试平台之一。如果ETH不能使DeFi工作,其他区块链也不能。”

在DeFi中工作的数字也有类似的观点。创客基金会的一位发言人说以太坊目前的成功很大程度上取决于它能够在其区块链上快速建立DeFi活动,从而吸引更多的用户和更多的活动。

他们说:“以太坊的活动范围、规模和数量是驱动DeFi生态系统的关键因素。”

 

扩张的机会

创客基金会的发言人表示,能够与以太坊进行互操作或建立在以太坊之上的区块链可能有机会扩大其市场份额。

他们说:“能够轻松整合或跨越以太坊构建的链应该能够利用这一活动,并通过为DeFi应用提供规模而随之增长。”

7月初,Tron创始人Justin Sun宣布启动三个Tron DeFi项目,其中包括一个“JUST Lend”信用平台。与此同时,EOS宣布与Bancor(BNT)合作,于4月份推出xNation平台。

未来几个月,EOS和Tron的市场份额可能会缓慢上升。

Anndy Lian说:“市场份额开始扩大,但速度会很慢。以太坊将在DeFi上领先到2021年,而其他人都在追赶。”

 

以太坊2.0的影响

向以太坊2.0和利益证明共识机制的过渡可能会进一步加强以太坊在DeFi领域的主导地位。66%的接受调查的以太坊持有人计划一旦网络转向股权证明,他们将把自己的硬币押在网络上,这可能会增加对DeFi能够提供的稳定回报的需求。

当ETH进入全比例模式时,这将产生另一个浪潮,以太坊2.0将提升DeFi。

创客基金会也希望通过股权证明来提升以太坊的DeFi。尽管它估计DeFi潜在规模的最大提升将来自区块链之间的互操作性和集成性,这意味着其他区块链还有增长其市场份额的空间。

虽然Ethererum 2.0应该会带来更高的效率,但它可能会落在应用程序上,通过跨链集成找到规模。

以太坊在未来很可能继续主导DeFi,但其他区块链也将发挥作用。问题是,DeFi行业的规模和可持续性到底有多大?

如果现在的玩家创造一个合适的环境并遵循某种形式的治理,那么DeFi将在未来两年内变得更强,anndylian预测道:“但如果每个人都想获得短期收益,每个项目都试图成为‘DeFi’,那么这个疯狂的时期只会是一个类似ICO的短期运行。”

Anndy Lian on CryptoNews: Ethereum Won’t Give Its USD 4bn DeFi Throne to EOS, Tron Anytime Soon

Quoted by Anndy Lian

“Ethereum has the first-mover advantage, as it has had at previous times in crypto history, from taking the lead in ICOs [initial coin offerings] and smart contracts and now DeFi,” said Anndy Lian, a Singapore-based cryptoasset advisor and author.

Lian also noted that Ethereum has the second biggest market capitalization in crypto and is “one of the best testing beds for the industry. If ETH cannot make DeFi work, no one else can.”

 

Ethereum will likely continue to dominate DeFi in the future, yet other blockchains will play a role. The thing is, just how big and sustainable will the DeFi sector really be?

“If the current players create a proper environment and follow some form of governance, DeFi will grow stronger in the next 2 years time,” predicted Anndy Lian. “But if everyone is trying to get short term gains and every project trying to become ‘DeFi’, then this crazy period will just be a shorter ICO-like run.”

Ethereum Won’t Give Its USD 4bn DeFi Throne to EOS, Tron Anytime Soon

Most of the total value locked (TVL) into DeFi (decentralized finance) is locked into Ethereum (ETH)-based platforms, and in the short term, it seems like things are going to stay this way.

As for the longer term, industry observers told Cryptonews.com that Ethereum will remain the dominant DeFi platform, even if other blockchains – such as EOS and Tron (TRX) – will catch up to an extent.

This is because growth among DeFi-enabling blockchains will come from network effects as much as technological utility and capacity. And with Ethereum boasting the first-mover advantage and a rapidly growing, most likely, it will be the ‘place to be’ for DeFi.

The king network rules DeFi

Ethereum is by far and away the dominant DeFi blockchain. Taking data from DeFi Pulse and DeFi.Review, it would seem that it accounts for 90%-99% of the total value locked into DeFi platforms.

Looking at DeFi Pulse, all but one of the 36 DeFi platforms it tracks are based on Ethereum (the other one is Bitcoin (BTC)). Of the USD 4 billion currently locked into these 36 platforms, all but USD 11.5 million of this total is on Ethereum.

DeFi.Review tells a very similar story: only four of the 26 DeFi platforms it tracks are not on Ethereum. These four – EOS, Tron, Bitcoin, and WaykiChain (WICC) – account for almost 10% of the TVL (USD 3bn) tracked by Defi.Review.

Why is Ethereum so dominant? According to industry observers, this dominance comes not so much from Ethereum being technically superior, but from it being the first to move and the first to gain a sizable base.

“Ethereum has the first-mover advantage, as it has had at previous times in crypto history, from taking the lead in ICOs [initial coin offerings] and smart contracts and now DeFi,” said Anndy Lian, a Singapore-based cryptoasset advisor and author.

Lian also noted that Ethereum has the second biggest market capitalization in crypto and is “one of the best testing beds for the industry. If ETH cannot make DeFi work, no one else can.”

Figures working within DeFi take a similar view. A spokesperson for the Maker Foundation told Cryptonews.com that Ethereum’s current success lies largely with the fact that it was able to quickly build up DeFi activity on its blockchain, something which attracts more users and more activity in turn.

“Scope, size and amount of activity on Ethereum are critical factors driving the DeFi ecosystem,” they said.

Maker (MKR) now leads DeFi by TVL, with more than USD 1.2bn locked.

A chance for expansion

The Maker Foundation’s spokesperson suggested that blockchains that can interoperate with or build on top of Ethereum may have a chance of expanding their market shares.

“Chains that can easily integrate or build across Ethereum should be able to take advantage of that activity and grow with it by providing scale for DeFi apps,” they said.

On the other hand, the Maker Foundation isn’t entirely confident that the DeFi market share of such chains can be substantial.

“Many of these exist today, but usage indicates that the DeFi market is currently prioritizing activity over efficiency or transaction costs.”

In other words, the DeFi prize will go to the blockchain that can command the biggest network effects. This is Ethereum, and it’s likely to remain Ethereum, even if other blockchains such as Tron and EOS increase their respective shares.

These two blockchains are certainly trying to eat into Ethereum’s dominance.

Early in July, Tron founder Justin Sun announced the launch of three Tron DeFi projects, including a “JUST Lend” credit platform. Meanwhile, EOS announced the launch of the xNation platform in April, working in partnership with Bancor (BNT).

“The market share is starting to spread but it will be slow,” he said. “Ethereum will take the lead till 2021 on DeFi while the rest are playing catch up.”

The impact of Ethereum 2.0

The transition to Ethereum 2.0 – and to a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism – may enhance Ethereum’s dominance of DeFi even further. A 66% majority of polled Ethereum holders are planning to stake their coins in the network once it shifts to proof-of-stake, potentially increasing demand for the kinds of steady returns DeFi can provide.

“When ETH goes into its full scaling mode, this will create another wave,” said Anndy Lian, who predicted a boost to DeFi from Ethereum 2.0.

The Maker Foundation also expects proof-of-stake to boost Ethereum-based DeFi. Although it estimates that the biggest boosts to DeFi’s potential scale will come from interoperability and integration between blockchains, implying that there’s space for other blockchains to grow their market shares.

“While Ethererum 2.0 should bring greater efficiency, it will likely fall on apps to find scale by integrating across chains.”

Ethereum will likely continue to dominate DeFi in the future, yet other blockchains will play a role. The thing is, just how big and sustainable will the DeFi sector really be?

“If the current players create a proper environment and follow some form of governance, DeFi will grow stronger in the next 2 years time,” predicted Anndy Lian. “But if everyone is trying to get short term gains and every project trying to become ‘DeFi’, then this crazy period will just be a shorter ICO-like run.”

In Conversation with ROBNΞSS, Blockchain Artist “Fusing Blockchain & Art”

Blockcast.cc: Good morning. I am Jenny Zheng, Cofounder of Blockcast.cc. We want to reach out to more people who are doing work for the blockchain industry. Blockchain is a technology that connects people and businesses together. We should not be stereotyping blockchain technology are just coding, codings and more codings. There are in fact many meaningful sectors such as charities, aviation, art that are adopting this new technology. Today we have a blockchain Artist in the house. Meet ROBNΞSS. He is joined by Anndy Lian, our strong supporter and an intergovernmental blockchain advisor where he will also ask a few questions. 

Hi, ROBNΞSS, please tell us more about yourself, your work and your life.

ROBNΞSS: Thanks Jenny and Anndy for having me at this interview.

My life has been always centered around music and art, however, I entered the blockchain space at the end of 2013. During this time I became acquainted with the altcoin space since at the time it was just at the inception stage. At first, I began investigating the technology, seeing the altcoin projects and what they were about and I also partook in trading as well. When 2015 came about, many new and exciting projects were being proposed and I saw the beginnings of the Counterparty network which was the very first ‘token’ network that lived on top of the Bitcoin network. Although Ethereum takes the limelight of the ‘NFT’ space, it was Counterparty that laid the foundation of what a token could do. I became involved with testing out different projects in the community such as ‘Spells of Genesis’ and ‘Sarutobi’ which became the two very first tokenized games on the Bitcoin network. After that, I became involved in the beginnings of the Rarepepe card trading group which slowly became an underground yet worldwide art collective and the seeds of the original NFT concept began to sprout there. Over 600 pieces of art were created and traded across the globe and we even managed to make the news with the ‘Homerpepe’ selling for over 39,000 dollars at an art auction in New York. Shortly thereafter we saw the genesis of Cryptopunks, Cryptokitties and the rest is crypto art history isn’t it?

Jenny Zheng: Tell us more about your art. We love to know more!

ROBNΞSS: My artwork is broad in style and delivery, if you look at my work today it is very different from my earlier works on for instance http://Superrare.co. Coming from the music world I have been very influenced by musicians who were able to change constantly such as David Bowie, Madonna, Prince, Michael Jackson etc. Most of my work is centered around futurism, what the world could possibly look like in the future, introspection and internal mind concepts and also current events. Visually I love to work in abstraction, primarily because abstract work always touches people in different ways and I love to see their interpretations to my own work. I feel their interpretations are correct because if they have an emotion, it is true and alive regardless of what thoughts I have of my own work.

Jenny Zheng: I love art and we have visited your gallery at https://opensea.io/assets/cyberpopgallery, which is your favourite and why?

ROBNΞSS: My favourite piece in my gallery? That’s a tough call, it’s like choosing your favourite child! If I was to choose one I would say ‘Seat of Self,’ it deals with the identity and ego concepts we all carry as individuals and perhaps there might be a place within us where this ‘persona’ might reside.

Anndy Lian: How did blockchain inspire your artwork?

ROBNΞSS: The blockchain inspires my work by being perfectly aligned with my futurist tendencies. To be able to advance the overall experience of art is an exciting adventure and every day we are breaking ground of what art itself can do as an experience to the individual. To be able to sell artwork to individuals across the world in an instant via NFT is the most amazing thing for me right now. I consider what the blockchain is doing to art is just as profound as to what the gramophone did with music. Music was always there with us even before the advent of music playback technology, but……it was a new way to experience music. By being able to take it home and play it back was a new way to enjoy music as an art form. With the blockchain I feel for art it has this same profound effect.

Anndy Lian: Can you share with us on your take of decentralisation? Do you think decentralisation work well in today’s context?

ROBNΞSS: I believe decentralization, in practice can lead to amazing things. Currently, we are seeing an entire worldwide community of artists being appreciated for their true works and through this, we are seeing artists truly emerge that are revealing amazing expressions that we might possibly have never had a chance to experience if this technology didn’t provide it. I thoroughly believe we are in an entirely new era of what I call an ‘Electric Renaissance’ period and perhaps we are also seeing artists that might be historically significant for the next century.

Anndy Lian: I have many artists friends. On one hand, they want to sell their artwork but on the other hand, the artwork is like their children, some took years to complete them, they want to know where they are and who is the current owner. Do you think blockchain can help to bridge artist and art owners since blockchain is known for its tracing and tracking abilities?

ROBNΞSS: As far as tracing the artwork I believe that is solely the power of what decentralization brings, that buyers can be anonymous if they choose to be. Currently, a lot of collectors seem to be fine with advertising themselves and being out in the open. Still, I am not quite sure who they are, what they look like and sometimes where they reside. I’m sure this will change in the future however, I believe the beauty is that they have a choice of anonymity as well. Presently, I do speak to a majority of collectors via Twitter on direct messages and it’s great to speak to them as well. I do honour their choices of anonymity as well if they choose. Sometimes I have buyers that just acquire my piece and the address is anonymous so I’ll never know who it was as well.

Jenny Zheng: Name 3 coins in the market that you believe in and why?

ROBNΞSS: A myriad of projects I used to believe in are now in limbo or their project is ‘still in development.’ My choices now have changed primarily because of their engagement in the real world. First one would be Ethereum of course and it was still a top pick of mine back in 2014 when I saw Vitalik’s first conference video from Miami. It has the biggest community by far and the development on top of it’s network is gigantic now. My second choice would be Dash. Dash has been gaining popularity in places in the world where currency devaluation has been absolutely terrifying(ala Venezuela). It also has the fastest confirmation times and would be perfect for actual crypto-cash in real life. My third choice would be Chainlink. Blockchain interoperability, I believe, will be of huge importance when certain chains get bogged with transactions. Also, communications between many chains will open up the blockchain universe to greater heights.

Blockcast.cc: Do you think there is a chance for another coin to take over Bitcoin’s number 1 position?

ROBNΞSS: I do not. Primarily because I believe in trading psychology and the psychology of Bitcoin’s value has been so hard-baked that any time a price rise occurs, a lot of altcoins are sold off back into Bitcoin to secure value and possibly increase when bought back into altcoins.

Jenny Zheng: Before we end this interview, can you please share an inspiring quote for our readers.

ROBNΞSS: From having the crazy dreams of wanting to land on the moon to merely wanting to sit in place and discover the inner faculties of the mind, it is your gift to be weird, never forget that. Be weird.

Jenny Zheng: This is one of the best quotes we have heard so far! Thank ROBNΞSS for sharing your thoughts with us. 

ROBNΞSS: It is my pleasure. Thank you and Anndy and Jenny for the interview.

Anndy Lian Moderated AMA Session with Conflux Network, a company led by Turing Award Winner Prof Andrew Yao

Blockcast.cc conducted an AMA with Christian Oertel from Conflux on Asia Blockchain Community #ABC channel at Telegram, 25 July 2020, 2 pm The discussion will be facilitated by Anndy Lian & Cofounder of Blockcast.cc Jenny Zheng. This AMA lasted for almost 2 hours and the following are the interview and questions.

Time: 14:00pm BJT, 25th July 10, 2020
Guest: Christian Oertel, Conflux
Moderator: Jenny Zheng, Co-founder of Blockcast

Basic Questions:

Jenny: Welcome Chris! Welcome, Anndy! It’s Great to have you guys joining us here in today’s Conflux AMA sharing session!

First of all, Chris, tell us more about yourself. What you have done before Conflux, your education background, hobbies and anything you can share.

Chris: Hello everyone, I’m Chris, and I am half German half Chinese. I got my Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering in Hamburg Germany, worked at Volkswagen and buildup a brand new factory in Papua New Guinea.

During my Master’s at Tsinghua University, I co-founded the Tsinghua International Blockchain Association (TIBA), was a senior project manager at a global crypto fund and incubator Blockchain Founders Fund, and co-founded an enterprise blockchain as a service platform before becoming global marketing manager at Conflux.

In my spare time, I like to experience new cultures through travelling and dining :D, study and experience new technologies to stay up-to-date with the tech-world, and communicate with people with different backgrounds!

My favourite soccer team is: SC Freiburg, a German team in the Bundesliga ~

Jenny: I remember u speak several languages, how many you can speak?

Chris: Only three. German, Chinese and English

Jenny: That’s already more than enough lol

2) We understand that you studied and worked in Europe for quite a long time. How was your life there? How is that experience affected your life?

As a half German half Chinese, I was always exposed to the Western culture from a young age, so moving there with 16 was not hard. There are differences in the University system between Europe and Asia, and people there find work-life-balance very important, whereas in China a six-day work week from 9am to 9pm is very commen.

Jenny: I work 24/7……lol

Chris: Haha, I know. Next time we meet, I’ll invite you to relax for a couple of hours :D!

Jenny: I know u r extremely busy when u r on a biz trip since conflux is growing so fast.

Chris: Yes, also the last couple of weeks were super busy as we have finally launched the second phase of our mainnet – Conflux Oceanus, we cannot stop, until we build a fast, secure and scalable blockchain protocol that everyone and use!

Jenny: Congrats! u can keep on going with question 2 ^^

Chris: ok, my biggest challenge there was that food is not as good as in Asia 😛 and that mobile payments, delivery systems, e-commerce is far behind of China and Asia. Europe is a nice place, but Asia is home to myself 😄 Everything is developing faster here, and this is exciting to be part of changing the world around us!
Jenny: haha Yea it’s exciting to be part of changing the world!

Jenny: How you get into blockchain? What is your role in Conflux? What excites you most in Conflux?

Chris: Heard about Bitcoin in 2010, but it seemed too complicated at that time to mine it, as I had 0 coding knowledge, and the information was hard to find. I always heard about it throughout the years but never dug into the technology behind it until I was having a skype call with an old friend of mine. And since then it has been a journey down the rabbit-hole for me.

Investing in crypto in 2017, making a profit and losing it in 2018. Working part-time in the crypto fund I’ve mentioned, starting a blockchain-as-a-service platform last year and then finally, having the opportunity to join Conflux Network 😄It was an exciting journey, and it has only been the beginning!

Jenny: knowing about blockchain back in 2010 is very early, and I also still remember the heat on 2017 and the down on 2018 lol

What excites me the most about Conflux? The founding team set out to build a decentralized platform to transact and communicate, a platform that would underpin a new cross-border financial system that is significantly more efficient and more secure than the current state. The ultimate goal is to create a platform that allows the world to interact in a trustless way – a truly global platform for trust.

Conflux is led by a team of luminaries and pioneers in the industry. All team members are top degree holders, to name a few Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), Tsinghua University, and are with diversified and elite backgrounds. The core team is prominent and well-recognized scientists in the fields of the distributed system, programming language, cybersecurity, cryptography, and game theory. Before Conflux, most of them worked in Wall Street and Silicon Valley.

It’s very nice to work and communicate with smart people every day, and it’s nice to see changes step-by-step!

Jenny: yea Conflux team is famous for being the team with the highest average IQ

Anndy: We met quite a few of the members. All are smart people.

Jenny: And the chief Scientist is the only one who won a Turing award in Asia

Chris: You guys are smart as well!

Anndy: Everyone here = smart to be in this industry. Tell us more about Conflux, what problems it solves? What is the application scenario? What is your happiest and saddest moment while developing it?

Chris: Sure! Let’s have a look at Bitcoin and Ethereum. Bitcoin solves the problem of having a secure and decentralized digital asset recognized by many people – BTC 😄Ethereum solves the problem of automating tasks involving the decentralized digital assets through smart contracts, current hypes like liquidity mining are not doable on the Bitcoin network.

What both of them fail at is: scaling! As their networks are easily congested, the transactions fees are high (limiting the number of users using the network, and the throughput is nowhere close to visa or mastercard (if we need a target of a truly global payment system)

Conflux Network is not reinventing the wheel, but improving it, keeping the best from all worlds and upgrading it so that everyone can enjoy the benefits and to explore unknown territory! And all this, while being secure, decentralized and fast.

Anndy: How different in terms of specs and deliverables when compared to Eth and BTC?

Chris: Let’s use the metric TPS (transactions per seconds):
Bitcoin: 4 – 7
Ethereum: 14 – 21
Visa: 3000
Conflux: > 3500
Jenny: Very impressive, even faster than VISA!

Chris: Exactly. And since Conflux Network is smart-contract compatible, developers can also do more than Visa.

Anndy: Fast is one aspect. The ability to scale is good. With such speed, what kind of use cases are you working on? Taking over NASA? LOL

Chris: Hahaha, Not for now, but maybe in the future!

Jenny: Keep my fingers crossing on that!

Anndy: Real business application is the draw for Conflux. Eager to hear.

Chris: A well-known Chinese aircrafts company will be storing their data on Conflux, so that they will have an immutable audit-trail of their data. One major aspect we are working towards is DeFi and in the long-term, our aims are to realized faster remittances for everyone!

Anndy: Is Conflux working with BSN in China too?

Chris: This we can disclose in a couple of months 😄

Anndy: The blockchain and crypto market have been changing. What do you want to see in the near future for this industry?

Chris: One of our partners has built a DEX on top of Conflux called moondex.io, where assets from different blockchains can be traded on top of Conflux like on a centralized exchange but fully decentralized and faster than all current DEXes.

Another team is working on FLUX, a lending and borrowing platform. We are reaching out to different stable-coin projects for integration so that more people around the world can use it.

With our transaction costs being 1000x lower than Ethereum, you can use any amount you want to experience DeFi unlike on Ethereum, where some smart contract execution cost up to 34 USD yesterday.

In the future, I see User adoption, better regulations, increased user-experience, fewer scams, and real-use-cases that can benefit everyone!

Anndy: If one of the future scenarios is to reduce the cost of the transactions, it will be wonderful. Let’s get into something more practical for our 3000 community members. They want to know more.

Tell us about the tokenomics and how individual investors like our community members can participate in and benefit from it?

Chris: Sure, Let me talk about our Genisis-Block 😄

5 billion CFX will be released which will be unlocked gradually as Conflux Network launches. This is the distribution:

– Private Equity Funders: 16% of the genesis tokens, released over two years.
– Genesis Team: 36% of the genesis tokens will be awarded to the founding team, released over 4 years and serve as a capital pool.
– Community Fund: 8% of the genesis tokens, unlocked within four years.
– Ecosystem Fund: 40% of the genesis tokens will be offered to community developers supporting the DApps, and will be unlocked within four years.

There is so much to say actually, but here is a link if you want to know more about it: https://medium.com/conflux-network/conflux-networks-economic-model-pre-mined-token-distribution-and-proportions-f92fe00696ea

Jenny: OK, Now here we come to our selected Twitter questions~ 3 questions to be chosen on Twitter, each winner will get 50FC in reward~ And if your question didn’t get picked, you still have a chance in our Q&A session, in the end, ~ 7 questions to be chosen live, each winner will also get 50FC in reward~

Twitter Questions:

1) @venkatz8: Regarding Covid Issues Peoples searched for the Insurance. mass buying and selling happen. IS CONFLUX gives a solution to this? You are Recently Partnered with LISXX (Life Insurance)So already they Believe you for this type of situations?

Chris: The quick answer is: yes! LISSX creates an ecosystem through which individual corporations, regulators, and institutions enjoy a frictionless way to participate in the massive and misunderstood life settlement market. Currently, the average person cannot sell their life insurance policy on their own, they must sell their policy through a broker — a process that is long overdue for improvement. LISSX is solving this problem in developing an exchange platform that benefits all parties involved in the life cycle of life settlements, across multiple countries.

As one of the largest networks for efficient transaction verification on the planet, Conflux Network brings a heightened level of maturity to the LISSX platform. This partnership allows for seamless life settlement exchanges and increased scalability that provide unequivocal expansion opportunities.
(This is a quote from the Lissx founder in regards of answering the question, I couldn’t answer it better)

You can read more about the LISSX partnership here: https://medium.com/conflux-network/conflux-network-partners-with-lissx-to-build-a-life-settlements-exchange-platform-e6186221375f?source=———14——————

2) @Mahi55833889: Shanghai Government is agreed to set up a Blockchain Research Institute with Conflux. How It Happens. The Government is Believing Conflux Great one. Will you please Explain about this and what is the current stage of this project?

Chris: The Tree-Graph Institute with the Shanghai Government has been established for over 6 months now. Conflux Network is the only government endorsed public blockchain in China, as we follow the regulations. This is also one important factor of why Conflux Network and not any other blockchain company in China.

The Institute is now building a top tier research team, lead by Prof. Andrew Yao and Prof. Fan Long, to contribute to the rules and standards of discourse in the age of distributed systems. As this is also an incubation platform, we will be gathering talents, technology and applications. The Research & Incubation Center will agglomerate industrial leaders and shape the future from the very start.

It is based on three pillars: investment, incubation, and service. This basis serves to support the development of sustainable blockchain projects. The Conflux Decentralized Application Fund will select outstanding incubation projects on the Conflux public chain, and provide them comprehensive support in terms of policies, funding, and technology. By creating an incubation platform, gathering talents, technology and applications, the Incubation Center will agglomerate industrial leaders and shape the future from the very start.

3) @iGaveUpToPickaw: Can you share some recent achievements done by #CONFLUX project and whats the Future Roadmap of #CONFLUX project for project developments?

Chris: This is a long one 😆But I will keep it short and about our recent developments. We have just celebrated our second anniversary on 2020.07.18 and launched our second phase of the mainnet – Conflux Oceanus. Prior to Oceanus, we have launched the first phase of the mainnet – Conflux Pontus – in April.

During Pontus, we have launched our DEX ecosystem, started several mid-scaled mining campaigns, cross-chain mapped 7 assets onto our network, made many new partnerships (Fliqpay, DeFiner, Lissx, MovieBloc, ZIP), attended and hosted many global events, launched a technical community DAO and 10+ projects have been chosen by them to be developed on Conflux, launched Community Developer Tutorials organized by the Community in China, etc. just to name a few things we did in the last 3 month.

Besides this, we have had a research paper accepted by one of the most renowned scientific publishers, continuously improved our technology, and launched more developer tools for everyone to use.

You can read more about our achievements and what you can expect from us in the upcoming month here: https://medium.com/conflux-network/oceanus-phase-2-is-live-7147e1d5c225 (https://medium.com/conflux-network/oceanus-phase-2-is-live-7147e1d5c225)

Jenny: Thanks Chris, for your sharings, but we are not over yet hahah. Now ill reopen the group chat so everybody can start to ask questions freely. You can choose 7 questions on the floor.

(Tons of questions flooded into the room…)

1) By Venkatz K , Decentralization is the Key of Crypto. But using DAG Structure the Decentralization is Questionable then Why Conflux choose DAG?

We have improved the traditional DAG structure to what we call Tree-Graph. In the so-called DAG structure, each block has only one edge in the figure, and in Conflux’s Tree-Graph structure, each block except Genesis block has two edges: the parent edge points to the father node and There can only be one father; the reference edge points to other blocks, expressing the Happens-Before relationship between different blocks. If you only look at the parent side, the structure of the book is a tree; if you look at the parent side and the reference side at the same time, the structure of the book is a picture. The tree diagram structure refers to such a structure that contains a tree in the diagram.

The Tree-Graph Consensus mechanism made up of the parent edge is very important to Conflux’s consensus mechanism. It enables machine nodes in the Conflux network to decentralize and securely agree on the full sequence of blocks and transactions. The structure of the tree determines the choice of the pivot chain, and the choice of the pivot chain further determines the full order relationship of the block and the transaction. Therefore, it is better to refer to Conflux’s book structure as a Tree-Graph structure than to generalize it into a DAG structure.

In contrast, some other existing DAG-structured projects, such as IOTA, Byteball, etc., have their own disadvantages: either do not support full sorting of transactions, cannot support smart contracts; or can’t use decentralization The way to achieve the node’s consensus on the full order of the transaction, sacrificing security.

2) By Mahathi, PONTUS, OCEANUS, and TETHYS will run separately ? or the Features of these three will be combined after the Tethys Release?

Chris: This is a good question! Actually, Pontus, Oceanus and Tethys are the names of each phase of our manner. Conflux Pontus, was launched in April, and everything we needed to launch, debug and test, has been completed, which is why we have launched Conflux Oceanus on the 18th of July. So the quick answer is: they will run one after another, and when Tethys launches, our completed mainnet is launched. Also, all features of Pontus and Oceanus will be included in Tethys!

3) By Raymund Anora, What is your outlook on the future of #CONFLUX in crypto? What can you do to keep increasing adoption to the whole industry?

Chris: Many blockchain companies have great technology, but one aspect everyone is trying hard on is community building and developer adoption. In regards to community building, we have launched Conflux sponsored PUBG tournaments or TikTok campaigns to not only do the traditional community expansion of blockchain companies.

We have expanded our communities to Vietnam, South Korea, Africa and will start a community for Russian speaking regions next week and Turkey as well. We are never stopping the expansion.

For developer adoption, we have launched our grants program, so that developers can realize their dreams on Conflux. One thing I have to mention is, Conflux Network is Solidity and EVM compatible, so Smart Contract Developers can easily migrate their existing work and deploy it on a technological superior blockchain network.

We are making new partnerships every month, and besides pushing developer engagement ourselves, we have a Technical Community DAO, which has already approved grants for community members to develop on top of Conflux.

Since Bitcoin and Ethereum Networks are the most commonly used networks, we have created a cross-chain asset protocol for interoperability of different blockchains.

If you’re interested about the tech behind the cross-chain asset protocol ShuttleFlow, I recommend this article:
https://medium.com/conflux-network/conflux-shuttleflow-a-cross-chain-asset-protocol-15ad6b2a9539

4) By Venkatz K , Recently the Phase II OCEANUS is coming to Live. How is the response to that from the developers? What’s your Plan about Releasing the Final Phase TETHYS?

Chris: Developer adoption is increasing day by day, if you’re a developer I strongly recommend joining our Discord channel: https://discord.com/invite/aCZkf2C, Or our forum: forum.conflux.fun

I was super happy to find out, that a project called “Bitquery”, integrated the Conflux Network on their unique Network Tracker without any knowledge about it actually, you can find it here: https://explorer.bitquery.io/conflux_oceanus.

And since we are PoW, based and you’re interested in mining with your CPU for now, please visit http://mining.confluxnetwork.org/ for more information about the participation to earn some additional FCs by contributing to our network!

5) By Jadmine, What is your strategy to survive in the long bear market especially now Defi coin are now booming how #Conflux competitive?

Chris: Right now the market seems bullish, at least in my opinion. Besides the two projects moondex.io (DEX) and Flux (Lending and Borrowing) that have been launched or are being launched, we welcome everyone to build on top of our DeFi ecosystem. On this landing page you can find more information about our DeFi ecosystem: https://defi.confluxnetwork.org/en/

I’m still unsure whether this DeFi Liquidity Mining thing is sustainable. One problem I see for sure is that only whales can benefit from it, and since the market is relatively new, it’s riskier than other existing DeFi platforms.

Jenny: 5 questions taken, 2 more to go~ im getting many private messages as well, hoping to know more about Conflux but due to time limit I think Chris can come back later next time to join in us ><

6) By SH, How safe is conflux for investors? Would you like to talk about your legal and security Measures?

Chris: During our private funding phase in 2018, the biggest investors of Conflux Network are traditional VCs like Sequoia China, IMO Ventures, MetaStable, or Baidu Ventures, just to name a few. The only reason why we are the only publicly endorsed public blockchain company in China is that we follow the regulations. We do not plan to change this.

As for the security of the network, we work with many 3rd party auditing companies to ensure a high-level of security. But from a networks perspective, we have integrated many mathematical proofs to show that attacking the Conflux Network, or trying to be faulty miners will not benefit!

7) By Venkatz K , why Experimental node is not from India. India is one of the biggest populated country a big platform for crypto. what are the minimum criteria for experimental node test?

Chris: If you have more questions about running a node just ping me. I also strongly suggest our developer documentation: https://developer.conflux-chain.org/ for setting up your private node of you want!

Jenny: Thx Chris! Thx for joining us today!!!

Jack: Thanks for AMA @ConfluxCris , give my 2 hours and learn,

Chris: And a massive applaud to @anndylian and @jennyzheng3568 to hosting this AMA and inviting me!

新加坡区块链专家Anndy Lian对话Knnit -二线交易所的出路在哪里

 

Knnit: 首先请您简单的介绍一下您自己。

Anndy: 我是Anndy Lian,目前我主要为政府提供区块链咨询服务,并担任瑞士Decent基金会的主席(亚洲), 可能更多的人认识我是通过我写的区块链科普书籍《 2030年区块链革命》。2017年以来,我一直活跃于区块链市场。2010年初,我有了我的第一枚比特币,当时它们的价值小到可以忽略不计,大家都没有想到今天它的价值已经突破1万美金了

Knnit: 您认为二线交易所有独特的卖点吗?他们的价值在哪里?他们提供了头部交易所没有提供的服务

Anndy: 毫无疑问,头部交易在市场上拥有绝对优势,他们几乎垄断了市场绝大部分的资源和用户,所以就给二线和小型交易所的空间就很小了,因此他们为了生存就需要特别努力奋斗。

与老大哥相比,二线的优势因为不受监管部门的重点关注他们往往可以玩的很野。你很少会看到大型交易平台上上几十倍上百倍的爆拉暴跌,但在二线交易平台和小型交易所上这样的戏码依旧还在上演,而且中小交易所往往为了拉新给出更高福利。

与小型交易所相比,二线交易所风险相对低一些。我们每个月都会看到离场的小型交易所,随后伴随着的就是用户的利益蒙受损失,而这又进一步加剧了用户对小交易所的不信任,形成恶性循环。

Knnit: 那二线交易所应该如何突出重围呢?

Anndy: 他们需要一个新的模式一个新的玩法,如果能成为业内第一个成功的模式的话那成功崛起也是可能的。但是,新模型也意味着高度的不确定性和风险。做得好,可能成为Bitmex(第一个引入合约)做砸了,那Fcoin(交易挖矿)就是前车之鉴。

Knnit: 在整个行业生态来看,二线交易所发挥什么作用

Anndy: 启动鲶鱼效应的作用吧。二线交易所就像沙丁鱼中的鲶鱼,更多的玩家意味着更多的竞争,更多的竞争带来了更多的创新和更好的服务。而且他们已有很多成功的案例可以借鉴,可以说站在巨人的肩膀上,他们可以以最整洁,最有效的方式进行构架设计,可以更自由地尝试新功能,更快地响应和适应市场。而这也反过来刺激了头部交易所和整个行业做出响应,提高效率和服务,对于用户来说是件好事。

Knnit: 未来在交易所这个赛道除了竞争之外,是否也会有合作或者资源整合?

Anndy: 这是肯定的,并且它已经发生了:

1)头部交易所已经在国外布局了,有时他们自己做,但是更多时候与本地交易所共同合作发展

2)小型/新交易所正在更多地采用头部交易所的云服务,这样它们就可以轻松,廉价地启动。而且当它们成长良好时,甚至可以从头部交易所获得投资(例如OK Cloud在海外扶植的众多当地交易所)

3)大型交易所也一直在投资有潜力的中小交易所,例如Binance向WazirX India投资。

Knnit: 对交易所这个赛道还有哪些其他看法?

Anndy: 新的交易所还是会不断涌出,并且现在开交易所也更加容易了,有ChainUp,HyrdaX,SHIFT等这样的公司可以为他们提供技术服务。一些趋势可能会复兴,例如DAPP和去中心化交易所(DEX),趋势可能会一直延续到2021年中期。我也一直都非常关注这些可能性。简而言之,二线交易所将不会消亡并且不排除会有黑马出现,这是行业发展的必然需求和方向。
