Dialogue

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

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

This the Phase 7, Topic: Talk to Blockchain Media in Thailand

Guest: Han

Han, CEO of Blockchain Review, one of the famous media in Thailand,He wrote a book about bitcoin in Thai. Blockchain Review is Thailand's blockchain education and cryptoasset news resource, dedicated to growing the Thai crypto community. Blockchain Review’s intention is to be the hub of the blockchain community in Thailand and to  educate  the Thai population about cryptoassets and blockchain technology. And it’s objective is to be the leading provider of information on blockchain technology for Thailand, and to demonstrate how this new technology can be applied to many industries. Blockchain Review hopes to foster a strong community in Thailand around blockchain technology and cryptoassets to prepare the next generation of Thailand for the future tokenized economy.

 

Andy Zheng: Mr. Han, you can briefly introduce yourself and your experience, why did you go into the blockchain industry? What have you learned from this process?

Mr. Han: Actualy it's not long story. I know bitcoin first time at April 2017. Before that I used to be a Software Enginner at Ecommerce company, when I was seeking for some investment, and unfortunately I feel stock is hard for me, so i try something else. Then I found bitcoin article in webboard name pantip.

Andy Zheng: Haha me too,  I was a code engineer a long time ago.

Mr. Han: I read and try to understand about it, try to read all paper and news as I could find in internet to get the answer how it works.

At first i tried to explain concept value of bitcoin to my colleagues, unfortunately no one understood about it. Even my parent said that bitcoin is fake LOL. So I have some passion to share what I know from bitcoin. Then i ask owner of the biggest media in Thailand to be writer.

Andy Zheng: This shows that the truth is always in the hands of a few people.

Mr. Han: I was a part-time writer there for a while. Then there were some people asking me to be speaker who educate about bitcoin and blockchain.

Now I am a speaker, But before that I was just an engineer. I need to learn many things about how to speak in front of people or how to make people understand about blockchain.

On the second time I was on stage, there was a guy from SEC Thailand came to listen to me. After that she asked me to speak at SEC. That is a grate moment for me.

Then after that i found some interest people in blockchain industry.Then We created Blockchain Review which is the best Thailand education media about blockchain in Thailand. I have one book writen by myself on book store and now I'm transalating Matering bitcoin to be publish next year.

Andy Zheng: Thank you, your experience is very exciting, there are subjective learning and hard working, and objective help, you are doing very well.

 

Andy Zheng: Would you please describe Blockchain Review's current business model and content orientation? As a well-known blockchain media focused on Thailand, how does it fit Thai characteristics?

Mr. Han: So first of all, we are Media. Our bussiness get profit from promote project, Adsense , and also affilate. But what we different is we try to deliver quality content which is original content.Some media just transalate news which hard to understand. We focus on how reader will understand our content.

We focus on education. It is the most importance. Most common question for everybody is that should I buy bitcoin, and I got many question like this many time.

So I ask them what do you know about blockchain and bitcoin. Many people know nothing. Once time there was a woman who don't know anything ask me about bitconnect. becasue she already get profit for that and she looking to buy more.

Andy Zheng: You insist on doing original content, it is very difficult!

Mr. Han: It is also difficult to do the right thing in the education and popularization of the blockchain.

 

Andy Zheng: What difficulties have you encountered in your media operations? What do you think is the most important thing to do well in blockchain media?

Mr. Han: I feel sad about people who invest in crypto without knowledge, Blockchain review mission is to educate people. It fit in this situation which many people still don't know what different between bitcoin and onecoin. Most difficult part in our bussiness is facebook ban all advertising content about blockchain and crypto even it's education content.

Every Thai people play facebook so we try to make the best content as we can. Our contet got shared from a lot of people. I think the most important thing for media is delivering correct content.

Media has a lot of influence to people. We could convince people to buy or promote scam like bitconnect. But we'wont. This is our bussiness, we shouldn't destroy it just for our greed in money.

 

Andy Zheng: In Blockchain Review's business, it also includes an analysis of the projectswhite paper, what are the evaluation criteria for blockchain project? How do you evaluate the quality of blockchain projects in Thailand?

Mr. Han: As personal I could tell my friend that which one you should buy. But as a media, I cannot do that. What I do is that I try to explain about that project as must as we can. But when we get some job about promoting ICO. We try to seek information about it as much as we can. The best source for us is bitcointalk. If you ask me in personal I will tell you like everybody, Team,Process,Possibility. But as a Media i Just explain about it and let's audience decide.

 

Andy Zheng: Would you please give us some information on the current situation of development in various segments of the blockchain industry in Thailand, including projects, exchanges, capital, media, etc.? What do you think of the current and future development of the cryptocurrency market?

Mr. Han: In Thailand  we have 5 exchanges which get temporary license from SEC, 6 media, 5 ICO projects that finish funding stage. But we have many projects in banking and gorverment part. One of banks in thailand is using blockchain for letter guarantee. Every bank form the alliance to develop blockchain between bank.

However, in thailand regulation still unclear in some part like Tax. But we have clearly regulation about ICO/STO that SEC try to push about it. I think when demand of bussiness is needed. Regulation about tax will come out in a good way.

Thailand have good vision about crypto, I think in the future, Thailand could be blockchain hub in SEA.

Andy Zheng: Yes, I agree with you very much. I have been in Thailand for a long time and can feel the atmosphere of the Thai blockchain.

Mr. Han: One of ridiculous that i heard from many event organizer is that Thailand is the best place for vacation. And it's important that we have low cost of living if any project want to invest comparing to many country, it's cheaper. Many companies in America have space in thailand.  Because if you want to hire some developers. It's cheaper than thier country. Students who just graduation in computer engineering get salary about 600-1000 USD/month in Thailand, but in USA should be 3000-5000 USD/month.

Andy Zheng: Thailand will also be the base camp of Beecast.

 

Andy Zheng: What opportunities and challenges do you think Thailand's blockchain industry has in the entire Southeast Asian market? How do your personal blockchain media respond to the market developments?

Mr. Han: Regulation and political  is the hardest challenge. For example, we have unclear regulation about tax and It's stop bussiness to invest because they cannot forcast amout of investment. And in next year Thailand will have election after we under military goverment for 4-5 years. If Thailand have clearly regulation and godd political situation. It's not hard for Thailand to be hub of SEA.

As a media we try to discuss with many people many time event in goverment organization like SEC and ministry of commerce. Also I'm one of 16 committees of Thailand Blockchain Association. So my task is pushing this industry as must as we can.

Actually two hour ago I just come back from meeting which discussed about regualtion. Thailand blockchain association try to convince gorverment about regulation and tax to make good ecosystem for everyone.

 

Andy Zheng: What are your personal and Blockchain Review plans for the future?

Mr. Han: Right now we focus on education and event. We try to be part of many event as we could to make our bussiness growing because that we just start up. We are part of many groups.

Last month we arranged event name blockchain thailand which has 1000 paticapate. Ticet is just 7 USD free food. We have 7 workshops and 23 speakers. Blockchain Review is 1 of 7 co-organizers.

In the future, we plan to have event like this again in Q3. We also arrange some education couses with many partners next year.

 

Andy Zheng: As a senior preacher in the blockchain field, you may have come into contact with a lot of people in the industry. Are there anyone you admire, and why? Beecast currently covers 250 cities in 15 countries, 5,000 community nodes, 1 million users , and hope to invite more big names to [Blockchain in SEA] to share the blockchain, promoting the development of the industry. If Mr. Han introduces one or two guests to be interviewed, who would you recommend to Beecast to share? 

Mr. Han: I recommend Bitcoin addict Team. It is the biggest Thailand Crypto community. Their community have a lot of people who understand cryptocurrency market.

Andy Zheng: That is great, I have met co-founder of Bitcoin addict on Vietnam Blockchain Day

Mr. Han: Next one I recommend Mr. Piriya Sambandaraksa. He is a guy who have the most understand in blockchain as I ever metn. He used to be a teacher in university. I heard that he will get Phd degree about Crptocurrency soon. He could tell everything about blockchain in detail such as that should we use blockchain in this project or not. He also has highly skill in economic and investment.

Andy Zheng: Nice, chatting with him must be very useful.

 

Q & A

Q1: What advice do you have for a blockchain media practitioner who has just entered the business? If you want to learn blockchain knowledge, what should you start with?

Mr. Han: Start from understanding money. If you want to understand blockchain, you need to learn from bitcoin. And when you study bitcoin you will have many questions about how money and world economic work. Many people don't understand Bitcoin becasue they know just one part of it. Technical people who don't understand about money and economic cannot understand bitcoin and blockchain.

I suggest Mastering Bitcoin, It is the best book for blockchain and bitcoin I've ever read.


Q2: In which areas do you consider the blockchain technology will be applied?

Mr. Han: Anything that data security is matter. Advantage of blockchain is data security. But It's waste and slow compared to other technology. If you want to use blockchain what you need to consider is "How much error rate system could handle?" If your system need 0 percent error, you need blockchain. But if your system could handle like 10%, you don't need blockchain. Set up single server is cheaper that distributed.

对话嘉宾:

Han

泰国Blockchain Review CEO

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7期,

主题:泰国区块链媒体初探

嘉宾:Han。

Han是泰国著名媒体之一BlockChainReview的首席执行官,并在泰国出版比特币相关书籍。Blockchain Review是泰国的区块链教育和加密资产新闻媒体,致力于发展泰国加密社区。Blockchain Review致力于成为泰国区块链社区的中心,并对泰国民众进行有关加密资产和区块链技术的教育,为泰国提供关于区块链技术的领先信息,并展示如何将这一新技术应用于各行业。Blockchain Review希望围绕区块链技术和密码资产,在泰国建立一个强大的社区,为泰国下一代通证经济做好准备。

 

郑西平:Han,您可以向大家简单介绍一下自己以及您的从业经历,当初为什么投入到区块链行业之中?在这个过程中有哪些收获?

Han先生:实际上这不是一个很长的故事。我第一次了解比特币是在2017年4月,在此之前,我曾是电子商务公司的软件工程师。我在寻求一些投资,不幸的是,我觉得股票对我来说很难,所以我尝试了其他方式,然后我在网站Pantip中发现了一篇关于比特币文章。我试图理解它,试着阅读所有的报纸和新闻,在互联网上找到答案,它是如何工作的。刚开始我试图向别人解释比特币的概念价值,不幸的是,没有人能理解,甚至我的父母都说比特币是假的。

所以我有一些热情来分享我对比特币的了解,后来我申请成为泰国最大媒体的写手,做兼职作者,还有一些人要求我做一个教授比特币和区块链的演讲者。

现在我是个演说家,但在那之前我只是个工程师。我需要学习很多关于如何在人们面前说话或如何让人们了解区块链的东西。在我第二次上台的时候,有一个来自泰国证券交易委员会成员来听我演讲,之后她让我在证券交易委员会发言,这对我来说是个令人激动的时刻。

在此之后,我发现了一些对区块链行业感兴趣的人,然后我们创建了“Blockchain review”,这是泰国最好的关于区块链的教育媒体。我有一本自己写的书,现在我正在翻译Matering bitcoin,到明年出版。

 

郑西平:请您介绍一下Blockchain Review,目前的运营模式、内容定位是怎样的?作为专注于泰国本地的著名区块链媒体,它是怎样切合泰国特色的?

Han先生:首先,我们是媒体,我们的业务从推广项目、广告和会员中获得利润。但我们不同的是,我们尽力提供高质量的内容,这是原创的内容,有些媒体只是传播难以理解的新闻,我们关注的是读者如何理解我们的内容,我们专注于教育,这是最重要的。

对于每个人来说,最常见的问题是我是否应该购买比特币,而我也曾多次遇到这样的问题。所以我问他们你对区块链和比特币了解多少,很多人什么都不知道。有一次,有位女士什么都不知道,问我关于bitconnect.的事,因为她已经获得了利润,还想买更多。

我为那些投资数字货币而不了解知识的人感到难过,BlockChain review的愿景是教育人们,在这种情况下,许多人仍然不知道 bitcoin、onecoin有什么不同。

 

郑西平:您在媒体运营过程遇到了哪些困难?您认为想要做好区块链媒体,最关键的是什么?

Han先生:在我们的业务中,最困难的部分是Facebook禁止所有关于区块链和加密货币的广告内容,甚至是相关教育内容。每个泰国人都会玩Facebook,所以我们尽量制作最好的内容,我们的内容得到了很多人的认同。

我认为媒体最重要的是提供正确的内容,媒体对人们有很大的影响,我们可以说服人们购买或推广像bitconnect这样的骗局。但我们不会,这是我们的事业,我们不应该因贪得无厌而破坏它。

 

郑西平:Blockchain Review的业务中,还包括对于项目白皮书的分析解读,对于区块链项目,Blockchain Review有哪些评价标准?您怎样评价泰国的区块链项目质量?

Han先生:作为个人,我可以告诉我的朋友你应该买哪一个。但作为媒体我不能这么做,我所做的就是尽我们所能解释那个项目。但当我们找到推进ICO的工作时,我们尽可能多地寻求有关这方面的信息。对我们来说最好的来源是bitcointalk。如果你私下问我,我会告诉你,比如每个人,团队,过程,可能性。但作为一个媒体,我只是解释它,让我们的观众决定。

 

郑西平:请您介绍一下目前对于泰国区块链行业各个细分领域的发展现状的了解,包括项目、交易所、资本、媒体等。 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?

Han先生:在泰国,有5家交易所获得证券交易委员会的临时许可证,有6家媒体,5个完成融资阶段的ICO项目。但我们有许多项目在银行和政府部分。泰国的一家银行使用区块链作为信件担保。每家银行组成联盟,发展银行之间的区块链。然而,在泰国,监管在某些方面仍不明确,比如税收。但我们对ICO/STO有明确的监管,SEC正尝试推动它。我想当有商业需求时候,有关税收的规定将以一种很好的方式出台。泰国对加密领域有很好的远见,我认为未来泰国可能成为东南亚的区块链枢纽。

我从许多活动组织者那里听说,泰国是最适合度假的地方,而且重要的是,我们的生活成本很低,如果任何项目想投资的话,要比许多国家更便宜。许多美国公司在泰国也有发展空间,因为如果你想雇一些开发人员,比他们的国家便宜。刚从计算机工程专业毕业的学生在泰国的月薪约为600至1000美元。但在美国,每月应该是3000到5000美元。

 

郑西平:您认为泰国区块链行业在整个东南亚市场中,有哪些机遇和挑战?您个人的区块链媒体如何应对市场发展形势的变化?

Han先生:监管和政策是最艰巨的挑战。例如,我们对税收的规定不明确,投资业务停止了,因为他们无法预测投资额。明年,泰国将在军政府执政4至5年后举行选举。如果泰国有明确的政策和好的政治形势,泰国要成为东南亚枢纽并不难。

作为一家媒体,我们经常试图与许多人讨论政府机构中的许多大事件,如SEC和商务部。我也是泰国区块链协会的16个委员之一,因此,我的任务是尽我们所能推动这一行业。实际上,两小时前我刚从一个会议上回来,讨论有关规章的问题。泰国区块链协会试图说服政府监管和税收,为每个人创造良好的生态系统。

 

郑西平:未来,您个人以及Blockchain Review有哪些发展规划?

Han先生:现在我们把重点放在教育和活动上。因为我们刚刚起步,所以我们尽力成为许多大会的参与者,使我们的业务成长起来。我们参与了许多组织,上个月,我们举办了一个名为blockchain thailand的大会,有1000个参与者,票价仅7美元,免餐费。我们有7间工作坊和23位讲者。Blockchain Review是7个联合组织者中的一个。

在未来,我们计划在第三季度再次举办这样的活动,我们明年还推出了许多合作伙伴的一些教育课程。

 

郑西平:Han作为资深的区块链领域布道者,应该接触过很多行业内人士,其中是否有您欣赏和佩服的从业者,为什么?Beecast目前覆盖15个国家250个城市、5000个社群节点、用户100万+,希望通过[Blockchain in SEA]邀请更多的大咖来社群分享区块链,以推动整个行业进一步的发展,如果Han引荐一到两位嘉宾,您会引荐谁来做客Beecast进行分享?

Han先生:我推荐Bitcoin addict Team,他们是最大的泰国加密社区,社区中有很多人了解加密货币市场。下一位我推荐Piriya Sambandaraksa先生,他是我见过最了解区块链的人。他之前是一名大学教师,我听说他很快就会获得有关CrptoCurrency的博士学位。他可以详细地讲述所有关于区块链的事情,比如我们是否应该在这个项目中使用区块链,他在经济和投资方面有很高的造诣。

 

自由提问

提问一:对于刚刚进入这个行业的区块连锁媒体从业者,你有什么建议?如果你想学习区块链知识,你应该从什么开始?

Han先生:从理解“钱”开始。如果你想了解区块链,你需要先从了解比特币开始。当你研究比特币时,你会有很多关于金钱和世界经济如何运行的问题。许多人不了解比特币,因为他们只对它只是一知半解,同样,对金钱和经济不了解的技术人员也不能理解比特币和区块链。

我推荐《Mastering Bitcoin》,这是我读过的针对区块链和比特币的最好的书。


提问二:请问您比较看好区块链技术在哪些领域落地?

任何关于数据安全的应用。区块链的优点是数据安全性,但和其他技术相比,它是费时费力的,而且速度很慢。如果你想使用区块链,你需要考虑的是“系统可以处理多少错误?”如果你的系统需要0%的错误,你需要区块链,但是如果你的系统能够处理10%的错误,那么你就不需要区块链,设置单个服务器的分布式成本更低。
