Dialogue

Andy Zheng: Good evening, everyone! I am SEA Beecast CEO Andy Zheng.

Welcome to the leading blockchain community media [Beecast] and join us with 5000+community&1000000+Beecasters in [Blockchain in SEA] to discuss blockchain technology and industry development.

This the first phase, topic: How the Post-95’s Media preach the Malaysian Blockchain

Guest: Ah Go

Ah Go, the founder of the first blockchain video media Cryptopedia in Malaysia, and the first educator in Malaysia to use video to spread the blockchain knowledge. With the high-quality content and the rapid spread of influence in Malaysia, he has become the opinion leader of the blockchain industry, and joined the Malaysian Blockchain Committee, currently focusing on community development, who has a deep understanding of the Malaysian blockchain and digital currency market.

 

Andy Zheng: Ah Go, please briefly introduce yourself,your self-media brand Cryptopedia and your business?

Ah Go: Hello everyone, thank you for taking the time to listen to my sharing, thanks to BeeCast's CEO Andy for doing an interview with me here.

I am Ah Go Wu Yifeng from Malaysia, 21 years old, currently a university student studying in finance.

I founded Malaysia's first Chinese blockchain we-media in 2017. At that time, I was able to start production before the bull market, and shared Chinese education videos of the blockchain on Facebook, which aroused the attention of a group of Malaysians and Taiwanese. Cryptopedia is a Malaysian news media that I want to further develop after my personal operation of the we-media [Ah Go Wu Yifeng].

 

Andy Zheng: What made you decide to enter the blockchain industry and start doing video media? From the founding of last year to now, how is the spread impact? Are there any unforgettable experiences to share with us?

Ah Go: Although I am a college student in Malaysia, I was an exchange student in Taiwan in 2017 and lived for a while.

At that time, I actively participated in some blockchain sharing meetings and events in Taiwan, and I found that other countries were more avant-garde than Malaysiathe in development of blockchain, and the Taiwan government began to support the development of the blockchain at that time, and the blockchain community is also more active than Malaysia.

After realizing that the Malaysian public generally had a lower degree  in the understanding of the blockchain, I began recording my first Chinese blockchain video for the Malaysian masses in Taiwan.

Because when I started to operate my self-media, I just met the beginning of the bull market, and naturally attracted many people who were interested in the blockchain to follow my video. The Malaysian Chinese market is still in its infancy, the spread of video quickly covered the entire Chinese market in Malaysia. At that time, I also received many project parties cooperation. This should be an unforgettable experience in my operation on the media.

 

Andy Zheng: The hot market of blockchain in Malaysia has just risen and more start-up media enter the market. The community operation model has become the main focus of blockchain media. What are your views on the development of blockchain media and the mode of community operation?

Ah Go: According to my observation, since the outbreak of the bull market in 2017, large and small blockchain media companies have sprung up in the blockchain media industry.

I believe that from the point of view of blockchain media, in order to monopolize the market in this competitive market and seize market share, we must cooperate with our own unique community operation model and integrate our own community into our own media. Then connect with other peer media to traffic and content channels to achieve maximum benefits with minimal cost.

In addition, I am also very convinced that the development of the community plays a very important role in the future development of the blockchain.

Only relying on the community, relying on the strength of everyone to accumulate various resources of all parties, toasting in the bull market, supporting each other in the bear market, relying on this strong cohesive force, and we will have the opportunity to see the blockchain media, even the entire blockchain ecosystem grows healthily for a long time.

 

Andy Zheng: You may have been exposed to various areas of the blockchain industry during your work., including all kinds of blockchain projects. From the perspective of a media people, how is the current development of the blockchain project in Malaysia?

Ah Go: Yes. During my time in the operation of my personal media, I did come across a variety of projects in the blockchain industry, not just in Malaysia, but also in other countries.

From the perspective of a media person, Malaysia's development is relatively backward compared to other countries, there are no more quality projects than other countries, but there are also some famous international projects, such as the famous blockchain of Ethereum. The browser Etherscan was developed by the blockchain team in Malaysia.

I hope that in the future, as the blockchain becomes more popular in Malaysia, there will be more quality projects that will bring real value to the entire blockchain development.

 

Andy Zheng: Whats your understanding about the current digital money market in Malaysia, including the whole situation of the ICO market, related policies, regulatory strength and so on. What do you think of the current and future development of the digital money market?

Ah Go: From the perspective of Malaysia's regulation, although Malaysia's decision-making on digital currency regulation is relatively slower than that of advanced countries, the government is also trying to keep up with the international pace.

Just four days ago, on November 2, 2018, Malaysia’s State Treasury Secretary Lin Guanying announced that a regulatory framework for digital currency trading and ICO would be officially launched early next year when he released the 2019 National Budget.

Based on my understanding, the Malaysian government will not stop any technological innovations that are beneficial to the future of the country and the people, especially for the blockchain and digital currency.

Before the introduction of a formal regulatory framework, Malaysia is currently maintaining a neutral attitude towards the development of digital currency.

I believe that after the launch of a formal regulatory framework and related policies, the future development of digital currency in Malaysia will be more vigorous and more optimistic.

 

Andy Zheng: The blockchain wave sweeps across the globe. What advantages do you think Malaysia has in this wave? Could you talk about the views of the entire Malaysian blockchain ecosystem?

Ah Go: Honestly, I don't think Malaysia has any significant advantages. If I really want to think about it, I think Malaysians will be more tolerant when they choose to invest in innovative ICO projects.

Although some blockchain projects may not be really good, as long as the team is convincing enough, many people are willing to try to give them a chance.

With the help of low threshold capital introduction, it will make the project easier to develop better.

Of course, this situation will be like a double-edged knife. If everyone ignorantly sees the project, it will also cause problems in the scam project.

In addition, I think another advantage of Malaysia is that the government is relatively rational about regulation.

In 2017, the blockchain became a household name overnight. As it involved the financial sector, countries began to express their position or act quickly. The Malaysian government chose to wait and see because of its unfamiliarity with new technology.

Malaysia chose to take into account other countries' regulation of new technology and after slowly understanding the new technology, it introduced a sound regulatory framework to catch up with international efforts. This is commendable to me.

 

Andy Zheng: As only 21-year-old Malaysia blockchain industry preacher, you can be said to be the representative of the post-95 blockchain industry talent, what are your expectations for your future development? How do you think the younger generation in Malaysia should view the development of blockchain?

Ah Go: Thank you Mr. Zheng for the compliments. Rather than being a talent in the blockchain industry, it is better to say that I am a blockchain learner who is constantly improving.

I hope that in the future, I will continue to learn from and research, gain a deeper understanding of the current and future development of the entire market, continue to contribute to this industry, and witness the true maturity and successful popularization of blockchain technology.

I think young people in Malaysia should start to realize that by our side, it is not just the blockchain, but also the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, big data, etc. That will slowly penetrate into our lives and become an indispensable part of our life.

After realizing this, I believe that young people will try to understand the disruptive nature of blockchain technology for the future of the world.

Then try to get in touch with new things, new technology, contact with some avant-garde pioneers, try to contribute to the development of the blockchain, and follow the trend of this era.

 

Q & A

Q1: Ah Go is so young to have such entrepreneurial results, and it is really great. What are the difficulties encountered in the process of starting a business? Can you tell us about the qualities necessary for a qualified blockchain entrepreneur?

Ah Go: I have heard a sentence: "An entrepreneurial team must have a dreamer. This dreamer must be able to persuade and lead a group of executives."

I feel that the biggest difficulty in starting an entrepreneurship at this age when except for the only ideas, ambitions, and dreams that have no basic economic ability, is how to organize a team that can trust you.

First of all, you must use your mobility to prove yourself, and then use your persuasive ability to enhance the confidence of others in your life, and work together with you to advance and retreat. I think this is one of the biggest problems that young entrepreneurs will encounter before trying to start a business.

Then, it is the profit model of business and the flow of income. I remember that I saw an entrepreneurial TV series, which mentioned this sentence: "A business that does not make money is an unethical business."

I think that in addition to human resource integration, another big problem in the process of young people's entrepreneurship is nothing more than financial problems.

If there is no stable profit model and stable income stream in the early stage, how to raise funds and raise sufficient operating expenses and development costs to support going to the later stages of development is also a problem that entrepreneurs often encounter.

Speaking of the essential qualities of blockchain entrepreneurs, I feel that as a blockchain entrepreneur, to survive in a rapidly developing industry and era, we must have strong insights and must master every detail of the entire market at all times, following the rhythm of the market, which is the best way to cope.

Next, I think it is necessary to have a strong willpower. Especially in the bear market that everyone is now encountering, it is necessary to have enough patience and coping strategies to precipitate in this sluggish market, wait for the next round of bull market again, and wait for the next round of flower blooms.

 

Q2: Is there any other media form of your self-media content carrier besides the video? What innovations will there be in future business?

Ah Go: Based on my personal observation and understanding of the blockchain media market, I believe that using video to launch content will be a competitive advantage, saving spectator’s time and reducing reading energy.

Therefore, about the form of content promotion, we insist on video as the main medium form.

In the previous interview, we mentioned the part of community development. We want to expand our current business through the integration of community and media.

In addition, we are also considering integrating digital currency into it to enhance the value of the entire media platform. I believe this will be a good innovation.

[blockchain in SEA] 95后媒体人如何布道马来西亚区块链

对话时间:2018 年 11月 06日 18:00

微信社群:BlockChain-in-SEA

对话嘉宾:

吴一风

马来西亚区块链媒体Cryptopedia创始人

马来西亚区块链委员会成员

马来西亚区块链行业意见领袖

郑西平

东南亚BeeCast CEO

 

郑西平:各位Beecaster,大家晚上好!我是东南亚Beecast CEO郑西平。

欢迎大家来到领先的区块链社群媒体【Beecast】,与5000+社群1000000+Beecasters一起参与【Blockchain in SEA】节目,探讨区块链技术与行业发展。本期是Beecast【Blockchain in SEA】第1期,主题:95后媒体人如何布道马来西亚区块链。

嘉宾:吴一风。

吴一风,作为马来西亚首个区块链视频媒体Cryptopedia的创始人,是马来西亚第一位用视频传播区块链知识的教育者,凭借优质内容和在马来西亚迅速扩散的的广泛影响力,成为马来西亚区块链行业的意见领袖,并加入马来西亚区块链委员会,目前专注于社群的培养,对于马来西亚区块链以及数字货币市场有深刻理解。

 

郑西平:一风,请您先向大家介绍一下自己以及您的自媒体品牌Cryptopedia,目前正在做什么?

吴一风: YFeng Go:大家好,感谢大家抽空在这里听我的一些分享,感谢 BeeCast 的 CEO Andy 能够在这里对我做一个专访,请大家多多指教。

我是Ah Go 吴一风,来自马来西亚,今年21岁,目前是一名就读金融系的大学生。

我在2017年创办了马来西亚的第一家中文区块链自媒体。当时赶得及在牛市前就开始制作,并在Facebook脸书上分享关于区块链的中文教育视频,引起了一批马来西亚以及台湾的群众的关注。Cryptopedia(加密百科)是继我个人营运的自媒体【Ah Go 吴一风】之后,想要更进一步发展的马来西亚新闻媒体。

 

郑西平: 是什么让您决定进入区块链行业并开始做视频自媒体的呢?从去年创始到现在,传播影响力如何?有没有什么难忘的经历可以和大家分享的?

吴一风:虽然我是马来西亚的大学生,但是我在2017年到过台湾当交换生,长居过一阵子。当时在台湾积极参与了一些区块链的分享会以及见面会之类的活动,并发现其它国家与马来西亚的区块链发展程度相比更前卫,而台湾政府在当时也开始支持区块链的发展,区块链社群也比马来西亚的更为活跃。

在意识到马来西亚大众普遍对于区块链的了解及认识有一定程度上的落差后,便在台湾开始录制了我的第一部针对马来西亚群众的中文区块链视频。

因为当时开始运营我的自媒体时,刚好遇上了牛市的开端,自然而然也吸引了不少开始对于区块链感兴趣的群众对于我的影片的追踪及关注,加上马来西亚中文市场还属于初期阶段,很快地视频的传播范围就覆盖了整个马来西亚的中文市场。当时也收到了许多的项目方要求合作宣传,这应该是我在运营自媒体中难忘的经历吧。

 

郑西平:马来西亚区块链市场的火热刚刚兴起,越来越多的初创媒体进入市场,社群运营模式成为区块链媒体的主要着力点,您对区块链媒体的发展以及社群运营模式有哪些经验看法?

吴一风:根据我的观察是,自从2017年的牛市大爆发之后,各地大小区块链媒体公司有如雨后春笋,纷纷投入到了区块链媒体行业中。

我相信以区块链媒体的角度来看,要想在这个充满竞争的市场中独占一方,抢占市场的份额,必须配合自家独到的社群运营模式,并将自家社群整合到自家媒体中,再与其它的同行媒体对接流量及内容渠道,用最小的成本实现最大的效益。

另外我也十分相信,社群的培养对于区块链未来的发展起着非常重要的角色。唯有靠着社群、靠着大家的力量累积各方的各种资源,在牛市中举杯同饮,在熊市中互相扶持,靠着这种强大的凝聚力,我们才能够有机会看到区块链媒体、甚至是整个区块链生态圈长期地健康茁壮成长。

 

郑西平:一风在工作过程中应该接触过区块链行业的各个领域,包括各类区块链项目,您从一个媒体人的视角看,目前马来西亚区块链项目的发展状况是怎样的?您怎么评价?

吴一风:是的。我在营运个人自媒体的这段时间的确接触到了区块链业内的各种项目,不只是马来西亚,也包括了其它国家的项目。

从一个媒体人的视角来看,虽然马来西亚的发展比起其它的国家相对来说稍微落后,优质的项目不比其它国家多,但也不乏一些著名的国际项目,像是以太坊著名的区块链浏览器 Etherscan 其实是由马来西亚的区块链团队所开发的。

我希望将来随着区块链在马来西亚越来越普及化时,会有更多优质、并能够为整个区块链发展带来真正有价值的项目出现。

 

郑西平:请一风讲讲对于目前的马来西亚数字货币市场的了解,包括ICO市场的整体状况以及相关政策、监管力度等方面。对于数字货币市场当前的发展状况以及未来发展态势,您是怎么看的?

吴一风:从马来西亚的监管方面来看,虽然马来西亚对于数字货币的监管的决策速度相对来说会比先进国来得慢,但政府也正在极力地跟上国际的脚步。

就在四天前,也就是2018年11月2日,马来西亚的国家财政部长林冠英在发布2019年国家财政预算案时,宣布将会在明年年初正式推出对于数字货币买卖及ICO的监管框架。

根据我的了解,马来西亚政府将不会阻止任何对国家及人民的未来有利的科技创新,特别是针对区块链及数字货币这一块。

在还没有一个正式的监管框架被推出前,马来西亚对于数字货币的发展目前其实是保持中立的态度的。我相信在推出了正式的监管框架及相关政策之后,数字货币在马来西亚的未来发展将会更为蓬勃、更为乐观。

 

郑西平:区块链浪潮席卷全球,您认为马来西亚在这次浪潮中有哪些优势?请您谈一谈对于整个马来西亚区块链生态的看法?

吴一风:老实说,我认为马来西亚其实没有什么太多显著的优势,如果真要我绞尽脑汁去想的话,我觉得马来西亚人在对于选择投资新颖的ICO项目时还是会更为宽容的。

尽管一些区块链项目或许真的没有太优秀,但是只要团队有足够的说服力,许多人还是愿意尝试去给这些项目一个机会。在低门槛的资本引进的协助下,将可以让项目更轻松地得到更好的发展。

当然,这种情况会像是一把双刃刀,若是大家毫无理智地见项目就乱投,同样也会造成骗局项目滋生的问题。

另外,我认为马来西亚的另一个优势是政府对于监管方面是相对理智的。

2017年,区块链一夕之间成为家喻户晓的话题,由于它涉及到金融领域,各国纷纷开始表态或迅速采取行动,马来西亚政府却因为对于新科技的不熟悉,选择了静观其变。

马来西亚选择配合参考了其它的国家对于新科技的监管、再加上慢慢摸透了解这门新科技后,再推出一个健全的监管框架,随后赶上国际的步伐。这点对我来说是值得赞扬的。

 

郑西平:作为年仅21岁的马来西亚区块链行业布道者,一风可以说是95后区块链行业人才的代表,您对于自身未来的发展有怎样的期待?您认为马来西亚年轻一代应该如何看待区块链的发展?

吴一风:谢谢郑总的夸奖,不敢当不敢当。与其说是区块链行业中的人才,不如说是一个正在持续不断提升的区块链学者。

我希望将来能够继续通过不断地学习专研,更深入了解整个市场的目前及未来的发展状况,继续在这个行业中贡献一份力量,和大家一起见证区块链技术真正成熟、成功普及化的那一天的到来。

我认为马来西亚的年轻人应该要开始意识到我们的身边,不只是区块链、也包括物联网、人工智能、大数据等等的科技趋势即将会慢慢地渗透到我们的生活中,成为我们生活中不可缺少的一部分。

当意识到这一点了之后,我相信年轻人们将会尝试自己去开始明白区块链科技对于这个世界的未来的颠覆性。然后尝试开始接触新事物、新科技、接触一些思想前卫的先驱者,尝试在区块链的发展进程中贡献出一份力,顺着这个时代的风口一同迈进。

 

自由提问环节

提问一:

一风年龄那么小就有这样的创业成绩,真的很棒,创业过程中遇到的困难会有哪些?你能不能讲一讲一个合格的区块链创业者必备的素质是什么?

吴一风:我曾经听说过一句话:“一个创业团队内必须要有一位梦想家,这位梦想家必须要是能够说服并带领着一班执行家前进的人”。

我觉得在这个“除了只有想法、野心、和梦想之外,连最基本的经济能力都没有”的年龄创业,最大的难度在于要如何组织一支能够信任你的团队。

首先,你必须要用你的行动力来证明你自己、再用你的说服能力来提升其他人对你的信心,和你一起同舟共济,共同进退。我觉得这个是年轻创业者在尝试创业前会遇到的最大难题之一。

再来,就是商业的盈利模式,及收入流。我记得我看过一部创业的电视剧,里面提起过这一句话:“不赚钱的生意,就是不道德的生意”。

我觉得年轻人的创业的过程中,除了人力资源整合之外,另外一个大难题无非就是财务问题了。如果一个初创公司的商业模式在后期才会看见可观的收入,而前期是没有稳固的盈利模式及稳定的收入流的话,那么要如何向外界融资,筹到足够的经营费及开发费,撑到后期的发展阶段去,也是创业者常常遇到的难题。

说到区块链创业者的必备素质,我觉得作为一个区块链创业者,在一个发展那么迅速的行业及时代中生存,必须具有强大的洞察力,必须要无时无刻掌握整个市场的一草一木,跟着市场的节奏应变,才是最好的应对方式。

再来,我认为就是必须要有坚韧不拔的意志力。尤其是在现在大家所遇到的熊市中,更必须要有足够的耐心及应对策略,在这个不景气的市场中沉淀,再次等待下一轮牛市,等待下一轮花开绽放的时刻。

 

提问

您的自媒体的内容载体除了视频形式外,还有哪些媒介形式吗?以后的业务会有哪些创新?

吴一风:根据我个人对于区块媒体市场的观察及了解,我认为利用视频来推出内容将会是一项竞争优势,节省了观众的时间,减少了阅读的精力。所以内容推广的形式我们坚持以视频为主要媒介形式。

刚刚在前面的采访中有提到社群培养的那一个部分,我们想要透过社群与媒体整合的方式去拓展我们目前的业务。另外,我们也正在考虑将数字货币一同整合到其中,提升整个媒体平台的价值。我相信这会是一个不错的创新。
