比特币大使部落

Back in the 90s
When you have a whatever .com
With a good project paper
You can get investments of millions
Within months.

Now
When you have a coin/token
With a good white paper
You can get investments of billions
Within minutes.

But like all times
All things will come to an end
The bubble will finally burst
With only the good ones survive
And become the giants of the era.

With so many new ico’s everyday
We can safely conclude that
Less than 5% are potentially good
About 25% has got nothing to do with blockchain technology
And the rest are empty promises (read SCAM).

The BrandLaureate Awards 2016 – 2017 年度最卓越品牌奖

于2017年5月22日在马来西亚吉隆坡大华酒店 (The Majestic Hotel) 举行的The BrandLaureate Awards 2016 – 2017最卓越品牌颁奖典礼上,比特币大使李威声 (Lee Willson) 凭着他的比特币环游世界 (Bitcoin World Tour) 以及世界区块链基金会 (World Blockchain Foundation) 荣获“最卓越世界品牌大奖”两项殊荣,誉满全场!这些年来他也致力于发展和推广比特币和区块链技术的而扬威国际,成就有目共睹!

关于比特币大使李威声 (LEE WILLSON)

马来西亚国籍的Willson,毕业于英国特许公认会计师公会(Association of Chartered Certified Accountants),是知名的国际企业顾问。2004年受中国国务院邀请代表海外华裔青年企业家在北京人民大会堂向国家领导发言。 集演讲家,投资家,旅行家,评论家,作家于一身。Willson也是全球唯一与华尔街风云人物吉姆罗杰斯 (Jim Rogers) 同台演讲的投资家;是全球首个用比特币环游世界 (Bitcoin World Tour) 并拍成纪录片的人,受邀在世界各地高峰论坛会发表[加密经济风暴演说秀],电影[比特风云 The Man from Bitcoin]全球宣传大使,世界区块链基金会 (World Blockchain Foundation) 永久主席, ,已然成为全球公认的加密数字资产专家和形象代言人!

在2014年的1月份Willson接触到比特币这个加密数字资产。出于对比特币的好奇,他搜索了一切有关比特币的资料。Willson发现世界上竟然有个这么好的新技术,并坚信加密数字资产和其区块链技术这项突破性的发现能够彻底改变人类。但由于当时的资讯缺乏,他无法在网上搜索到足够有关比特币的使用方式,于是他决定了担当起圈内人和圈外人的这个桥梁,到世界各地去亲身感受当地人对于比特币的认可及它所带来的方便,以之推广并让更多的人来认识比特币,是全球首个用比特币环游世界并拍成纪录片的人,因此被广称为比特币大使。

通过比特币环游世界的主题,Willson让大家更加有兴趣地去了解知道比特币这个加密货币的认同跟认可,他正做着改变世界的一件事,而他也非常喜欢印度国父莫罕达斯.卡拉姆昌得.甘地 (Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi) 的一句话:

在这个世界上,你必须成为你希望看到的改变
You must be the change you want to see in the world”

关于THE BRANDLAUREATE卓越品牌奖

THE BRANDLAUREATE在品牌与商标的世界掀起一股浪潮。这个BrandLaureate卓越品牌奖项代表了世界所提供的最好品牌。这个锡镴奖杯,镀上24K金,并以最精致的施华洛世奇水晶做为装饰,象征着品牌致胜的成功与卓越的品牌追求。同时这项殊荣也表彰拥有杰出品牌并为马来西亚经济作出重大贡献的著名品牌。

历届得奖者也是各领域的佼佼者,其中包括了一些家喻户晓的领导人物和企业如维珍集团创办人Sir Richard Branson;国际名人终生成就奖方面,曾获奖的人包括已故苹果之父 Steve Jobs、前南非总统 Nelson Mandela、拳王 Muhammad Ali、前美国国务卿 Hillary Clinton;最佳传奇人物奖项有足球运动员 Cristiano Ronaldo、哈利波特作者J. K. Rowling、前曼联主帅 Sir Alexander Chapman Ferguson CBE、国际巨星 Tom Cruise、导演李安、中国运动员姚明;最佳标志性人物有面子书创始人 Mark Zuckerberg;最佳品牌个性奖项得主中有歌手王力宏、周杰伦、国际著名钢琴家郎朗;国际巨星成龙等人皆是荣获 BrandLaureate 卓越品牌奖项的人。

而今天比特币大使李威声凭着他的比特币环游世界 (Bitcoin World Tour) 以及世界区块链基金会 (World Blockchain Foundation) 荣获“最卓越世界品牌大奖”两项殊荣,也可说是与这些知名品牌、人物奖项齐名,是至高的一项荣誉!

另外,值得一提的是,“卓越品牌奖”是唯一获得前国家元首端姑米占再纳阿比丁认可的品牌奖,而其他的颁奖人也是大有来头,如:前首相敦马哈迪医生、前首相阿都拉等,都曾经是颁奖嘉宾。

2016 – 2017年BrandLaureate卓越品牌奖是由亚太品牌基金会Asia Pacific Brand Foundation (APBF) 所主办,也是世界上唯一被受承认的品牌基金会在马来西亚及其他区域的各中小型企业的卓越品牌。这次的BrandLaureate卓越品牌奖及其主题是“为您品牌的诚信,品质,信誉承担责任Take responsibility of your brand for your brand integrity, quality, credibility”.

企业的品牌本身必须先有诚信,品质,以及信誉来承担对于这个品牌的责任,也有能力来把握机会和克服突来的挑战。卓越品牌在经济发展中有着举足轻重的作用,因此,建立强大并且可持续的品牌,不仅提升国家建设,更对企业成长与发展有所贡献。

在比特币大使李威声的团队里,他主张着区块链的生态大家都是老板。他也常鼓励团队成员一起学习和起步创立自己的事业。在他的团队里每一位成员都是自由、独立,同时享有共同的价值观和使命感,就像一个区块链的Consensus共识机制一样。更进一步把区块链技术推广给广大民众。

作为BrandLaureate 2016 – 2017世界最卓越品牌奖的获奖者,Willson拥有一个驱动品牌的使命和强大的品牌文化,使之能够满足品牌的目标。而这次凭着他的比特币环游世界 (Bitcoin World Tour) 以及世界区块链基金会 (World Blockchain Foundation) 同时荣获“最卓越世界品牌大奖”两项殊荣,对他和团队而言都是一个重要的里程碑。

来自比特币大使的信息和使命

对比特币大使李威声而言,世界上的每一个人都是成就比特币价值的一份子。在他的演说秀上,不难发现他也是一名风趣的主讲人,所谓“用地球人的语言”来让大家知道何为比特币和区块链技术,拥有比特币也不是金融和科技达人的专利。比特币对社会带来的好处,尤其是“去中心化 Decentralisation”和“分布式 Distributed”等特点,都是值得大家关注的。

Willson也通过这非常受欢迎和具备娱乐性的加密财富风暴演说秀推动了比特币和区块链技术,备受世界各地的观众所青睐,从而肯定了这位史无前例的比特币大使的全球知名人物地位。

为了不负众望,Willson承诺会继续他的使命成为自愿工作者,陆续把更多有关比特币加密货币和区块链的发展和资讯分享到社会各阶层人士,哪怕只是普通民众,路上行人,甚至家庭主妇们等等。大家也可以通过比特币环游世界,一部被誉为全球首例的比特币之旅纪录片,一起来探索比特币在全球各地的使用方式和认可,它在短短3年的时间成功地渗透全球六大洲,超过三十个国家近百个城市。覆盖地区不断增加中,大家不妨猜猜看,即将到达的下一个目的地又会是哪里?

I just love to repost these “told you so” postings exactly just 1 year ago.
Had you known… yeah right!
Hehehe..

A post from Bitcoin Ambassador – Lee Willson, 21 January 2016 :

From around $375 to $420 in less than 12 hours.
A profit of 12% during that period. How about that?
Less than a week ago I said “Go shopping” didn’t I?
It was around $360 which would come to almost 17% in 5 days.
If you are patient enough of course.
Well “patience” in crypto terms means weeks.
Not considered too long a time I suppose.
Oh this is not inclusive of relative profit from asset switching, yet!
Ether has not responded in proportion to the rise in bitcoin.
Meaning? Yummy yummy!

P/S: May I add all the above can be achieved by just sitting in front of the screen for less than an hour a day?!

 

The Mega Bitcoinomics Talk Show – Macau (2nd time in January 2017)

Check this out!

Two Mega Bitcoinomics Talk Show within a week to a total of close to three thousand new blockchain fans!
World Blockchain Foundation welcomes all blockchain initiatives to lift the prosperity of the industry.

Another mega “Bitcoinomics” Talk Show in Macau in January 2017 attended by more than a thousand audience.

Combating “Quantitative Easing” (read paper printing) where the world’s fiat currencies are made more and more worthless against real products and services resulting in asset-backed blockchain projects becoming ever popular.

Gold Dollar Blockchain (GDX) is released with the backing of gold mines in Africa on a proof of stake (POS) basis where decentralisation is the ultimate goal. Nothing is a guarantee success but any try as a non-bank non-government control crypto-asset is always welcomed.

Special thanks to blockchain evangelist Thomas Glücksmann, bullion expert Chan KingSton, blockchain investment writer Zhou Chao Hui, bitcoin song singer Zhang Zhang and senior bitcoin miner Jack Liao for making the show an outstanding one.

Don’t expect the price of bitcoin to immediately surge after the show but at least hopefully this will somehow fend off the downward pressure just before the Lunar New Year.

Beating Buffett Series

A special report (or obituary?) on Zcash.
The most hyped failure after the DAO?
Well I know the DAO is already dead, but all is not lost after Ethereum saved it hence giving birth to ETH and ETC.
The question: Is there anyone to save Zcash?
It hasn’t yet failed to keep surprising everyone with its new lows giving rise to the mystery of the century:
How low can it go?
Obviously the miners themselves are finding it hard to sustain and selling just to keep afloat.
A rebound is not helped by the capital outflow from the general crypto market and the over concentrated funds in bitcoins.
Whoever is investing in cryptos are expected to keep their main stakes in bitcoins anyway so it is still not bad, but I certainly hope and foresee the altcoin market back alive few more months down the road.

Message from World Blockchain Foundation:
Everyone in the blockchain world should compliment each other to accelerate the growth of the technology.
All new industries come with countless opportunities and the economic cake is big enough for everyone.

 

China’s New Blockchain Drive: Who’s Leading it, and Why?

People Need to Understand Bitcoin, and New Technology Needs a Human Face

Lee’s Bitcoin evangelism has made him a celebrity in China, with regular event appearances and media interviews. His traveling two-hour presentation, “Bitcoinomics,” across north and south-east Asia introduces newcomers to digital currency. Next, he’s taking the show to Brazil.

His material comes from personal research and his “Bitcoin World Tour,” where he traveled to over 15 countries starting in 2014. Lee is also making a documentary about his experiences called “The Man From Bitcoin.”

Notably, the Malaysia native’s presentation style is what Chinese call “nong min” — “in farmers’ terms,” or in a casual manner easy for the layperson to understand.

People fear what they don’t understand, Lee said. They need to understand Bitcoin easily before they’ll accept or even use it.

To an extent, Lee personifies Bitcoin in the mainstream Asian media. Lee said he does it absolutely to promote Bitcoin and blockchain technology, but the local culture demands a well-known identity to promote them.

“The Asian mentality looks more towards an idol, or figure,” Lee said. “People want to follow the person, not the technology itself.”

How This Turned Into Chinese Government Endorsement

Executives often hire Lee to present at corporate events, and he regularly packs out ballrooms and conference halls. At one such event in Changsha, Hunan Province, a member of China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) was in the audience.

The representative told him MIIT planned to look more closely at blockchain technology, and had already set up a committee to begin research. All it needed was a catalyst to make a big noise and get everyone talking. So Lee formed the World Blockchain Foundation, a not-for-profit organization to promote blockchain technology, and planned a conference with high-profile guests on the invite list.

For its first stage MIIT, via its research committees, published the Blockchain Technology and Application Development white paper on 18th October. That began to create some buzz, but it needed to grab attention from the Chinese political echelon.

So then came the conference, a more glamorous event (by usual crypto conference standards) designed mainly to announce China’s intent to become involved in blockchain technology development. The event took place on 30-31st October, also in Changsha.

Need to Announce China’s Blockchain Arrival Publicly

Any new policy direction in China, even those backed by senior government bureaucrats, first requires endorsement from the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC).

Looking at the guest list, the conference was the highest-level blockchain-related event in China to date. Several high-profile Party, administrative, plus banking and insurance company leaders attended.

The first day saw Li Meng, Vice Chairman of the National Government, join proceedings. The second brought Li Wu Wei, Vice Chairman of the CPC’s National Political Bureau. Both joined in photoshoots with conference presenters and sponsors.

Lee spoke on both days of the conference, regularly referring to Bitcoin. While some presenters spoke about China’s technological leadership role, others called for permissive regulation to allow Bitcoin and blockchain to flourish there. A group of international guests expressed hope that China could nurture the technology and take a leadership role.

Tencent, maker of various online services including China’s popular WeChat platform, announced it is developing a “cloud blockchain” platform. It is particularly interested in applying smart contract technology.

Anecdotal feedback suggested the invitees responded positively to the speeches.

World Blockchain Foundation’s Ongoing Role

Now the conference is over, MIIT and Lee’s World Blockchain Foundation (WBF) must start the serious work of facilitating actual Chinese leadership in the blockchain industry.

WBF will perform education and training and blockchain technology R&D. It also plans to establish some industrial standards for blockchain and will perform consultative services for both corporate and government clients.

WBF will also have various advisory boards — legal, technological, business and economic. And of course, it will continue to liaise with government departments and political officials wherever possible.

From initial skepticism and mistrust in 2013 to 2016’s tacit endorsements, China has come a long way towards discovering blockchain’s benefits. Not only that, but it’s not marginalizing Bitcoin — there’s definitely a place for financial technologies at the table.

This is thanks to the the open minds at MIIT, and Lee’s promotional work.

China realizes now that blockchain technology is a wide and beneficial field, said Lee. It’s not a clever investment product designed to swindle investors out of their savings, as the government once feared. Instead, as some conference presenters mentioned, blockchain hardware and software applications could drive China’s economy into the future.
