Community Building Series #...

# Why Klaytn focuses on building a communityDear Klaytn readers,Building blockchain communities is one of the key elements in making the blockchain business successful. There are three reasons why blockchain companies must consider building and growing blockchain communities. In the blockchain industry, a community acts as a partner in development, a contributor to the project, and as a supporter of the project. Klaytn helps so that communities can grow stronger, since they are the most important assets in the development of the platform. In this new series of articles ‘Community Building Series’, we share interesting ideas about community building, what it means, and why we need them. We get together with blockchain community experts from the Southeast Asia region and discuss their experiences and thoughts as well as the current status of blockchain community formation.In this second article, we share an interview with Ellena Ki, who is a Marketing Leader at Infinito Solutions’ Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam office. Infinito Solutions has headquarters in Singapore.#1. From finance person to blockchainKJ: Hello, Ellena. It is a great pleasure to have you for an interview. Please introduce yourself to Klaytn readers about what you do as a community builder at Infinito Solutions.Ellena Ki, Marketing Leader at DiInfinitoEllena: Hi, KJ and Brian. It is an honor for me to participate in the Community Building Series as the second speaker. I am Ellena Ki, and I work at Infinito Solutions in the marketing and business partnership department. My main role is to expand the Infinito ecosystem and enhance the Infinito brand by partnering with top blockchain service providers. At Infinito, the marketing team aims to establish strong branding among crypto communities and the blockchain industry as a whole. We work closely with business and technical teams so we can make better products, services, and solutions in order to improve customer experience.We strongly believe in the power of collaboration, as we can leverage the expertise of many to enhance and deliver better value to our community. That is why our team is focusing on partnerships with industry experts. We must bring new value to the Infinito ecosystem to achieve maximum benefits for our users and customers.Brian: Alright! I’m now curious how you entered the blockchain industry.Ellena: I spent the past 15 years of my professional life in the finance industry, working in Japan and Hong Kong. My work centered in particular around intercontinental finance services: the flow of money across borders including fixed income, equities, funds, settlement, custody, collateral management, fund settle, and more. After years of working in the finance world, I was seeking something new. That is how I eventually ended up in the blockchain world. I realized that the transparent yet secure way of recording data means that system breaches, funds misappropriation, and lack of consumer trust will become issues of the past. I also realized that a smart contract of blockchain can optimize the cost and speed of the transaction significantly — industry leaders are gradually seeing the value of blockchain and will eventually try to utilize it.#2. Thoughts about Community Building from EllenaBrian: A common sentiment throughout the blockchain space is that blockchain companies regard the community as a very important part of building a blockchain ecosystem for their projects. Would you share your thoughts and opinions on why blockchain companies focus on community building so much?Ellena: The blockchain industry is still fairly young, and the communities are not as large or mature in comparison to other industries. Blockchain technology users tend to be a niche demographic that are very tech-savvy. The average consumers, however, usually believe that blockchain products are difficult to use, prone to scams, and are not practical. Therefore, to expand the mass adoption of this technology, blockchain companies need to develop easy and safe to use products and services. Additionally, they should aim to solve the needs of real users so that they become viable in the mainstream market — where less tech-savvy users value speed and convenience above all.KJ: Okay. Could you tell our readers what kind of communities your company is trying to build?Ellena: Infinito has always been building its ecosystem around community needs. We support the most wanted blockchains, functionality, cryptocurrencies, and DApps (Decentralized Applications).Our wallet expanded its functionality beyond send and receive. We included support for unique utilities of specific blockchains such as managing EOS resources, claiming NEO GAS, etc. We also collaborated with IOHK and Binance to give our wallet the best performance for Cardano & Binance Chain networks users. As for DApp support, we have been working with Ontology and EOS partners as our technology providers.We join and host many meetups, programs, events, and charities to engage better with our communities as well as reward them for being part of the Infinito ecosystem. These include global EOS account registration campaigns, frequent token airdrops from ecosystem partners, programs for global users who meet us, and community campaigns such as referrals, bounties, and more.Infinito will issue utility token INFT soon, which has been well-rated as BB by TokenInsight, a leading crypto project rating and analysis agency. We also organized INFT airdrop exclusively for participants who participated in many events such as Bibox Meetups. We have been and we will continue to do various AMAs with global partners such as Ontology, IOST, COSMOS, COCOS, and more. As you can see, Infinito is always seeking collaboration with the industry’s best to deliver better services to our communities.Our soon-to-be-released INFT token is designed to encourage community growth, specifically for the Infinito ecosystem. With features such as staking to receive benefits, voting for Infinito product roadmaps, rating for service quality of ecosystem DApps and etc., we aim to accelerate growth in the number of blockchain users and developer communities in our ecosystem. This will help us achieve the final goal of mass adoption.Brian: Can you give us the pros and cons about community building in your country? Also any thoughts on your government’s stance on blockchain (in general / cryptocurrency / development, etc.)?Ellena: Our country, Singapore, is very open to blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. All blockchain and crypto businesses operating in the country must comply with the official laws set by the government. Thus, it is less complicated to build a community in Singapore compared to less open-minded countries, where laws are unclear. On the other hand, due to the market being so open, there is more competition not only now but also in the future.Currently, Infinito ecosystem users come from many different parts of the world and have a diverse array of needs. This is why the products, services, and solutions of our ecosystem must cover a wide range of demands. And this is why one of our top priorities is to always understand and serve the different needs of the community.The Singaporean government is open to blockchain technology and many blockchain projects on the market. Quite a few of them are even supported by the government itself. This is why Singapore is currently regarded as “the heaven of blockchain” — the country understands how much impact this technology could have to our society. We believe that Singapore is on the right track, and we believe that is is crucial for more countries to recognize the immense potential of blockchain: daily lives can be much improved using this new technology.Vietnam is one of the key markets Infinito is focusing on. There are many reasons as to why Vietnam’s economy is rapidly growing. The government and the public have a high level of understanding in fintech, a large number of crypto users, as well as a skilled blockchain developer community. For these reasons, Vietnam is being regarded as a high potential market for many blockchain companies.We organized many rewards for Vietnamese users. INFT airdrop at ‘Cointime Summit 2019’ event is one of them. The most notable event was last year’s “Junction x Hanoi,” in which our team had the honor to lead a team of young Vietnamese developers to gain global recognition. Infinito is also looking forward to collaborating with blockchain companies in Vietnam. We will build a strong network and promote Vietnam as the blockchain hub of Asia.KJ: We know that you are a blockchain enthusiast who is building blockchain communities in Southeast Asia. Please share your experiences so we can understand more about the community building, even though we have not experienced it directly. And lastly, you mentioned that it is very important for blockchain companies to create communities and collaborate together to make a better blockchain ecosystem. Could you share your personal thoughts on that regard?Ellena: Communities are developing high interests in the practical use cases of blockchain technology. The most notable one is DApp services — especially fiat gateway — and security tokens. This is something that we have foreseen. We have geared up to support security tokens as well as focusing on expanding our ecosystem of services and developing the new payment platform, InfinitoPAY. A seamless experience will be the main selling point. Service providers will need to prioritize this aspect to effectively develop their products and grow their user base.Infinito is always open to collaborations with global blockchain players. In fact, we have formed strategic partnerships with leading blockchain players such as Binance (China), EOS Block Producers and Block Producer Candidates, Ontology, IOST, and many more. We work with big players like IOHK — the company behind Cardano blockchain (Hong Kong), ONTology (China), prominent tech companies, media, and DApp partners worldwide such as Kyber Network, Changelly, ETHFinex, and etc.In the past, we have successfully collaborated with EOS community leaders and achieved over 12,000 users joining the rising EOS blockchain. We also have them access EOS DApps. Infinito was one of the first names in the industry to support Binance’s assets and services including BNB Coin and Binance DEX (decentralized exchange) on our ecosystem via official collaboration. At the moment, we are talking to various global partners such as Sofitto, CryptoWolf, Wisepass, EOS Account Creator, DEXEOS, and many more companies for an upcoming membership program, which will provide premium benefits and incentives to our ecosystem members.Brian: For our last question, could you give our readers some final advice regarding gathering people to build blockchain communities?Ellena: It would be best to really learn and know about the market. Then you can target the right partners. Understanding the demands and expectations of your target community will help you more than anything when you are trying to build one effectively. Having a strong partner network, and I recommend prominent regional players, can significantly boost your branding as well as help you gain trust from communities. Aside from technical collaboration, there are many valuable areas of cooperation that you can explore, such as events and community programs.

Community Building Series #...

Community Building Series #1: Nicole Nguyen, the Professional of Community Building in Southeast Asia# Why Klaytn focuses on building a community.Dear Klaytn readers,Building blockchain communities is one of the key elements in making the blockchain business successful. There are three reasons why blockchain companies must consider building and growing blockchain communities. Unlike other technologies, a “community” is what develops “blockchain” as a core partner. For example, developers from different communities can also participate in blockchain ‘platform’ projects indirectly by creating relevant blockchain tools. And developers who belong to the ‘platform’ community contribute codes directly to this open-sourced project, which is public on GitHub. Therefore, having a community is very important in developing blockchain projects in technical aspects as well as scaling the project to a realistic size so that mass adoption can be achieved. Not only the individual developers, but the communities themselves can also contribute to the project. Community members could be willing to join bounty programs and provide their feedback on a platform or service to improve the project, or spread news about the projects to the public and get rewarded through airdrop. That feedback could help the blockchain project to meet users from the public. In addition, communities participate in ICO and IEO of the project by buying the tokens, the blockchain company to develop their business, and thereby the participants’ loyalty goes up. It means that the community is an important nutrient for the growth of the blockchain project.In the blockchain industry, a community is a partner in development, a contributor to the project, and a supporter of the project. Klaytn helps communities to grow healthy, and this growth of communities is one of the most important assets in the development of the platform. Klatyn strives to build a community, considering it as the key element. In this new series of articles ‘Community Building Series’, interesting ideas and thoughts on meanings of community buildings are shared to rethink why we need them. We talk with blockchain community experts who work in the Southeast Asia region and cover their experiences and thoughts as well as discuss the current status of formation of a blockchain community. Additionally, they share how they work and what they have experienced while building a better blockchain community in each country or a company.In the first article, we share an interview with Nicole Nguyen who is the Head of APAC at Asia Blockchain Review (ABR). ABR, the largest initiative of a blockchain media company, connects all blockchain enthusiasts through a range of group discussions, technical workshops, conferences, and consulting programs.#1. Becoming Blockchain Local ExpertKJ: You are one of few female blockchain enthusiasts in this Southeast Asia blockchain scene. I think that you’ve been a pioneer in evolving the blockchain ecosystem, fostering the industry by connecting the major blockchain players in the crypto space.Nicole: Thank you for your compliment. I have been involved in the space for over 3 years now. At ABR, my role is spearheading the regional initiative to become the top of mind news, media and community platform for players interested in Southeast Asia.KJ: To get to know more about you, we would like to ask you how and why you entered the blockchain industry.Nicole: “Three years ago, I have had the privilege to be the first marketer in Infinity Blockchain Labs — the sister company to Asia Blockchain Review. Since then, it has been a crazy joyful rollercoaster ride for me in this blockchain world. To be able to experiment with new initiatives and meet new inspiring people every day keeps me moving forward. Knowing that I can continuously learn new things from other people, stay fearless of the unknown and inspire more people to join the ride with us is wakes me up every day.Interestingly, my previous professional career had no involvement in tech or emerging tech at all. I used to work for Unilever and a couple of other multinational organizations plus set up a fashion startup on my own before experimenting with this novel technology called blockchain. “I had to start from scratch. I was learning new things every day, talking to absolute strangers and building my network in a totally new domain — Very challenging yet rewarding at the same time.”Brian: So you seem to be enjoying your dynamic journey in the blockchain scene. Let’s talk more about what you have been doing specifically as a community builder.Nicole: “I have started observing more about what other people do and learn from them directly. It may sound different from what a traditional community builder does, but I believe despite how much social media are changing the way we communicate or interact, humans prefer real connections. And mutual interest between people make people more interested in others and this helps your personal growth as well.For media platform, I produce contents that feature blockchain projects and entrepreneurs to grow our network and partnership. Besides the media platform, we organize our Unblock event series regularly in 3 key cities: Ho Chi Minh City, Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok. We also helped with organizing the ‘Klaytn Hackathon Meetup’ in Ho Chi Minh City and Manila. We love bridging people with all these useful events and grow the community as a whole. But the best part about my job is still bugging my colleagues, acquaintances, and friends to teach me, who is a technology illiterate, what the latest issues in blockchain space have been. I think they will miss it if I stop doing so one day.”#2. Thoughts about Community Building from NicoleBrian: Many blockchain companies emphasize the importance of the community because they believe that a better blockchain platform/service can be built with developers contributing to the open sourced project. Could you share your thought on what the blockchain community is?Nicole: I believe that blockchain sets itself apart from other technology because of the impact communities can have to blockchain technology. In the blockchain space, the community includes everything from your prospective investors, evangelists, contributors, first hand users as well as everything in between that keep your product up and running. It is almost impossible for you to live in the blockchain space without having a community.KJ: You regard a community as not just a representation of a single role, but also as prospective investors, evangelists, contributors, and first-hand users. Then what do you think of how the communities will evolve in the future? Is there any implication to other blockchain companies?Nicole: “The community would get more diverse now that more players from mainstream industries are joining the game. Also, I think the community will get even more focused on a specific type of audience, instead of trying to befriend everyone. We now have more niche communities targeting specific trend or business or interest. For example, in trading, we now have communities for traders, family offices, IEO, STO, margin traders, etc. By targeting specific needs, these communities will play more important roles in the landscape. This, consequently, requires blockchain companies to put more efforts in coming up with a relevant community strategy since they need to be really specific and single-minded who they should speak to and what setting or languages they should use.”Brian: It is very interesting that communities will be broken down by the interests and it is actually trending in the communities of ABR. So in this flow, how will you promote the growth of the community and go along with them? What is your community’s development plan and how will you proceed?Nicole: “I always believe that sharing knowledge is the most powerful element of connecting people and building a community. You will grow the community and at the same type grow as an individual as well, without even knowing it. Then, the community building will be embedded in your DNA. This way, you will also be able to provide value to the people in your community. At ABR, we encourage our team to share knowledge, connections, and support to our members and our community and we have been able to receive generous rewards for such initiatives. We hope to connect with like-minded people and together we will be able to spread the blockchain spirit further!”#National Community Building & Government Position of The BlockchainBrian: So let’s move on to a more realistic example. In your country, what difficulties have you encountered when building a community? And what are some good points?Nicole: “I have been working on a regional scale rather than within one single country. For now, Thailand is our main focus and this represents lots of excitement as well as challenges. You can never run out of the fun in Thailand and the market has just started to get exciting. However, local partnership and connections are extremely important in Thailand and it is relatively challenging for a new international player to be able to tap in the ecosystem here within a short run. Still, challenges amass such as a huge gap between the expat and local communities in Thailand, low blockchain awareness and sporadic education schemes which demand collective efforts from not only ABR but other players. Community growth in Thailand requires significant persistence and efforts. However, I believe that the growth comes with commensurate benefits now that Thailand has prominently positioned itself in the regional map. Thanks to forward-thinking regulations and initiatives from the government.”KJ: It is impressive that Thailand’s blockchain regulation is pioneering and the government is also cooperative with the blockchain related industry. Can you tell us more specifically about this, especially given the current situation in which many countries are regulating blockchain technology?Nicole: “I would like to share my opinion on both countries — my home country Vietnam and my second home, Thailand. It is interesting to see how different governments in the region are shaping their strategy around blockchain. Vietnam has exceptionally strong in tech talents, operation cost and entrepreneurship. However, the infrastructure in the country is not ready for mass adoption and the government is taking a more skeptical stance towards cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. On the other hand, Thailand started more slowly yet with its stable financial infrastructure, higher financial literacy and especially the appetite for innovation, Thailand now stands a better chance of getting ahead in the race. The regulators such as SEC, Bank of Thailand, etc. are showing positive moves towards accommodating blockchain, not only from the perspective of the regulator, but also as an adopter. All these exciting movements help shed the spotlight on the blockchain landscape in Southeast Asia, making this region the go-to destination for quality and long term blockchain projects and entrepreneurs.”# Collaboration PossibilityKJ: We know that you are a blockchain enthusiast building blockchain communities in Southeast Asia and beyond. Please give us your thoughts and share your experiences that helped us to gain more indirect experience with the community building. Lastly, you mentioned that it is very important for various blockchain companies to create communities and collaborate together to make the better ecosystem of blockchain. Could you give your opinion with that?Nicole: The nature of Asia Blockchain Review is connecting projects outside Asia with the Asian ecosystem. So we are definitely open to any partnerships both with local or international projects. We are aiming to onboard 300–500 top projects in Asia on our platform within 2019 and thereby create one of the largest and most important gateways for blockchain.At the end of the day, blockchain technology can only prove its value through real life applications. Thanks to collective efforts from connecting platforms such as ABR or GroundX, we will be able to connect like-minded people to address the diverse needs of stakeholders. This will allow us to validate how blockchain can really make the difference and ultimately lead to mass adoption.The following will be an interview with Infinito Solutions community representative. Please keep us interested.Community Building Series #1: Nicole Nguyen, the Professional of Community Building in Southeast… was originally published in Klaytn on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Klaytn Meets Boltt Protocol

Boltt Protocol, one of Klaytn’s Initial Service Partners, is the incentivized healthcare service leveraging blockchain and gamification. We are interviewing its CEO, Arnav Kishore.Klaytn: We are interested in knowing more about you and your team.Arnav Kishore, CEO of Boltt ProtocolArnav: I have been a sportsman and health and fitness data enthusiast for years. I founded Boltt 5 years ago with a mission to transform healthcare for all, and since then, we have managed to expand our ecosystem with thousands of users and credible partners. Our team also consists of seasoned professionals and veterans with previous work experiences in advanced health data solutions, mobile applications, and wearable technology products.With Boltt Protocol, we have built a decentralized health data sharing network that enables users to own, control, and monetize their health data. Users are rewarded for sharing their data, which is transferred to decentralized storage via permission-based sharing. Further, by staking Boltt tokens on the platform, health organizations including hospitals, insurance, pharmaceutical companies, and IT companies can access this data to analyze and derive meaningful insights.Klaytn: Can you tell us more about how and why you decided to partner with Klaytn?Arnav: We share Klaytn’s vision for blockchain mass adoption. Boltt is building products and solutions with a mission to unleash global potential of blockchain for the mass as well.Also, we are leveraging Klaytn for faster transactions and better scalability solutions. Klaytn’s technology is designed to make a highly reliable and trust-reinforcing blockchain platform with high performance that can enable products and services to benefit from a higher degree of transparency, integrity, and security. We believed that Klaytn is the ideal platform for Boltt Protocol.Klaytn: Tell us more about your blockchain service.Arnav: Boltt Protocol is a decentralized service that empowers users to own, control, and monetize their health data, and at the same time enables permission-based sharing of users’ data with organizations that help manage users’ heath. In the data sharing process, our service gives solution for privacy and secure data transfer issues by using Smart Contracts and decentralized storage on the blockchain. Once shared, the users are rewarded with Boltt Tokens for contributing to the network. The tokens are later used to avail products and services offered by health and fitness organizations. With this overall incentivized service, Boltt marketplace enables personalized commerce. Further, by gathering all of users’ health data, our platform provides continuous access to the data from over 350 in-home medical devices, wearables, pharmacies, EHRs, labs, patient portals, mobile apps, personal doctors’ office, and anywhere else it is stored.Further, with the users’ shared datasets, the organizations and developers are empowered to make better decisions. The access to datasets enables them to derive and analyze meaningful insights from the data. The datasets will be delivered via customized APIs and decentralized storage solutions on the network. The Boltt network will encompass a highly focused health community, enabling the health organizations to effectively market their products and services based on data-driven decisions.Klaytn: How do you foresee the future of blockchain industry?Arnav: I cannot imagine the future of healthcare without blockchain technology. The healthcare industry is in the midst of a major paradigm shift, witnessing some exponential growth. The world is now predicting a 300% growth in healthcare data between 2017 and 2020. This exponential growth is not only from internal systems such as electronic health records but also from external touchpoints at consumers’ ends including wearables, fitness apps, medical devices, etc.With this importance of health data, I would say, blockchain and healthcare are a perfect match. That is, blockchain technology allows transparent, peer-managed, secure data tracking across computing devices, and creates a public, chronological database. Also, decentralization disrupts the traditional data brokerage process in healthcare industry. And most importantly, blockchain will empower users to monetize and regain control of their own health data.Klaytn Meets Boltt Protocol was originally published in Klaytn on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Introducing PoC & KIR

Introducing Klaytn PoC & KIRKlaytn established economic growth and distribution as one of the core design principles. As such, Klaytn identifies economic entities that contribute to sustainable growth of the platform and provide compensation and support commensurate with each participant’s level of contribution. We thus operate two programs in which anybody can participate and receive rewards based on his or her contribution level, namely Proof of Contribution (POC) and Klaytn Improvement Reserve (KIR).Proof of Contribution (PoC) assesses the contribution level of all economic entities within the Klaytn ecosystem and provides rewards in KLAY that correspond to each entity’s level of contribution.Klaytn Improvement Reserve (KIR) is allocated for anybody committed to maintaining sustainable ecosystem growth through platform development or community building efforts.*They are not ad hoc promotions but regular programs to be run while the Klaytn platform is in operation.Proof of ContributionProof of Contribution is designed to encourage and incentivize all participants within the Klaytn ecosystem to spontaneously engage in economic activities by creating and exchanging values with one another. Such activities collectively build up an economy of circulating wealth that helps improve the stability of the Klaytn platform and also drives economic growth of the entire ecosystem.In order to maintain the network and strengthen the economic growth at a greater scale, Klaytn compensates more diverse forms of contributions from a wider range of participants. In doing so, Klaytn rewards all economic entities in the Klaytn token economy that make meaningful contributions via transparent evaluation and incentive mechanism.Proof of Contribution aims to assess the contribution level of all economic entities and provide rewards that correspond to each entity’s level of contribution. PoC primarily focuses on two types of economic entities: service providers and end users.Service ProvidersTo achieve mass adoption of blockchain technology, it is important to implement and leverage widely popular blockchain applications to create a solid foundation of end users who discover value from such applications. Our service providers play a key role in the Klaytn economy as entities on the supply side. They not only create supply of services to satisfy our end users, but also serve as channels of new user acquisition and as anchors of user engagement. Acknowledging their contributions, Klaytn is designing PoC as an incentive mechanism for service providers to effortlessly join the Klaytn platform and enjoy sustained support as they continue to grow in our ecosystem.End UsersKlaytn is currently reviewing the potential for enabling PoC an incentive mechanism for end users as well. Our end users are the fundamental driving force behind economic growth as the primary demand-side entities, creating valuable market signals by carefully selecting and using services and sharing reviews with each other. During the early operation period of the Klaytn platform, we will analyze the user behavior in order to formulate a method of quantitatively assessing a user’s contribution to the platform.For more information on Proof of Contribution, please refer to Klaytn Docs — Proof of Contribution Operation Plan.To apply for Proof of Contribution, fill out the PoC Application form.Klaytn Improvement ReserveKlaytn also operates the Klaytn Improvement Reserve (KIR) for sustainable ecosystem growth. As technology continues to improve and as the needs of users change over time, our platform must be able to quickly adapt to new circumstances that arise. To respond to such changes, Klaytn Governance Council will make spending decisions for three main categories to maintain Klaytn ecosystem:PlatformEngage in research and development, and support infrastructureToolsCreate better development environment and enhance developer experienceCommunityDevelop programs to encourage participation in the Klaytn ecosystem including community events, meetups, hackathons, etc.*We encourage all participants in the Klaytn ecosystem to submit KIR proposals.Committed to sharing the economic growth among service providers and users, Klaytn supports diverse activities and collaborations that can contribute to expanding the Klaytn community and triggering the mainstream adoption of blockchain experience.Join now! The more meaningful contributions you make, the more rewards you are given. For more information, visit our official webpage at www.klaytn.com. We also updated the Token Economics & Governance Paper on the Technology page.Cheers,Team KlaytnIntroducing PoC & KIR was originally published in Klaytn on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Diversity in Blockchain Ser...

Dear readers,We are excited to introduce the first interviewee for [Diversity in Blockchain] series, Songyi Lee. She co-founded 37 Coins and worked for Metadium as Chief Strategy Officer. She refers to herself as “the pioneer of blockchain diversity”. As an early female player in the blockchain industry, she has prioritized her efforts on solving real-world problems by using blockchain technology. And now, she is on a quest for her next destination.In addition to ‘the pioneer of blockchain diversity,’ Songyi has quite a number of other descriptions that did not seem to match the co-founder or CSO position at a private firm:Zentrepreneur¹, Creative Director, Host of guesthouse named ‘B-Salon’…When you introduce or describe yourself in a professional setting, it is typical to use your company name or position. But Songyi’s identity, expressed by her various experiences and personal values, puzzled us; it was difficult to get a full grasp of her. It was only later we realized that all of this complexity is perhaps what makes her just the right person to be the first interviewee for [Diversity in Blockchain] series.After the interview, we could sense that her complex personal inclinations, experiences, and thoughts all converge into one story and create one individual named ‘Songyi Lee.’ She focuses fully on discovering herself and listening to her voice.#The Blockchain Journey Narrated by A Self-ExplorerWhile she has various modifiers to explain herself, her favorite is ‘self-explorer.’ As ‘self-explorer,’ she has been able to ponder about her wants and needs, what she can do to change the world, and take actions. Then, what could have made this self-explorer dive into the world of blockchain?“As a self-explorer, I have been able to examine my own special capabilities and potentials. Through the process, I believed that it was my job to actively understand and solve real-world problems. I studied social welfare in college and worked at World Vision, the international humanitarian organization. While working at World Vision, I had an incident with a refugee, which ultimately led me to step into the business of blockchain. During a business trip to Mali in West Africa back in 2013, I met a refugee named Fatima, who had been subsidized by her husband in Côte d’Ivoire and living off a bag of money that had been handed to her. I was shocked to find that there were still people like Fatima, who seemed so far away from the kind of world that we were living in. In “our” world, we could send as much money as we wanted to our friends and families living abroad through our online banking system. Witnessing the gap between these two different realities — one that actively uses technology and the other that doesn’t — I had an intense desire to close this gap.”Songyi then co-founded 37 Coins, a service by which people could send receive Bitcoin via SMS. Although 37 Coins did not last long due to market limitations, she was not discouraged to consider the potential of blockchain technology as a useful tool to resolve many social problems. Rather, her failure encouraged to study harder and deeper.(Source: 37Coins)“When I started 37 Coins business, it was not easy to implement the features I wanted, as the technology was not mature, the team was small, and also there were not enough resources to work with. Besides, I did not have enough time to fully understand and communicate with the team members who came from diverse backgrounds. It was only after the 37 Coins project failed that I started to have fundamental questions about myself. I was exhausted both mentally and physically, but at the same time, rather ironically, I was given an opportunity to look deep inside of me to think about who and what I really am, how I cope with disasters, and what it is that I really want. Such questions gave me the power to stand on my own and gave me a chance to live my life thoroughly, not controlled by others or my external surroundings.”Running a startup company was definitely not a simple task, and returning to the blockchain industry would have been a much more difficult decision, we assume.“Although 37 Coins failed to prove its business model in the market, I was able to better understand the philosophy behind blockchain technology and the potential social impact that blockchain could create. The industry grew at a fast pace and the market perceived the technology only as a tool for speculation. My colleagues and I were overwhelmed by the rapid speed at which blockchain technology was growing, and at the same time, feeling a bit deprived by the new-rich who have recently profited enormously out of the crypto investment. In the midst of this crypto craze, I wanted to contribute to shaping the direction that this industry is heading in a more positive light.”(Songyi Lee at CoinSummit 2014)#Self-Sovereign Identity — the Answer to Who I AmReturning to the blockchain industry, Songyi decided to work at Metadium hoping to find an answer to the question that she has always posed: who am I? The current identity system in society does not allow the actual owner of the identity to control his or her data; instead, it is owned and managed by a central entity or organization. On the other hand, when the data is leaked, it is not the central entity that is damaged, but the owner. It is estimated that there are about 1.1 billion people² in the world including women, children, and refugees living without official identities. This is not to be overlooked as it means that they would not be able to integrate into a social system without official identities. For instance, they cannot receive basic support such as education or healthcare from the government. It is almost as if they are invisible, excluded, and completely powerless.On the contrary to the traditional registration system that consists of specifically given numbers like Social Security Number(SSN), Metadium breaks away from this traditional concept of identification to pursuing an idea of considering a variety of factors and elements to define a single identity. Name, age, occupation, academic background, as well as preferences, religion, and sexual orientation are the elements that express and reveal ‘oneself.’ The individual characteristics that are presented online and offline spaces also have to be recognized as their unique identities. In order to implement this new concept of identity, a secure and convenient identity verification solution is needed. And Songyi believed that blockchain technology could provide the solution to this identity issue, which is also the question she had for herself.The Self-Sovereign Identity model enables individuals to not only possess sole ownership over their online and offline identities but also control the sharing and distribution of their personal data. With this model, the individuals have the power to own, manage, and utilize their identities without any intermediaries. A single company doesn’t — and also shouldn’t — have all the solutions, and the fact that there are many companies and projects working on identity solutions shows that there is so much to be done in this realm. She is again looking for the new space to contribute her experiences and insights.#Individuality and Diversity“There are no two people in the world who are exactly the same. That is why we must live as ourselves, and make sure that the answer to ‘who am I?’ is reflected in our identity. The world will then be made up of truly diverse individuals. We must recognize and support the characteristics and potentials of every individual. In reality, however, such diversity is often deemed as a cause of conflicts and problems. People form groups and cliques by putting themselves under a single frame rather than recognizing each unique individuality. Conflicts arise among differing groups — women v. men, old v. young, native-born v. immigrants, those with disabilities v. those without, etc. People often generalize a person’s characteristics as the entire group’s characteristics. “Why do women behave that way?” “Why are young people like that?” On the other hand, there can always be ‘good’ conflicts that can contribute towards making a better society and not leave hate. Such ‘good’ conflicts start when people become more open-minded to diversity and understand others’ potential. Blockchain is a kind of technology that can identify and test the potentials of individuality and also realize democratic, fair, and transparent values.Songyi believes in the power of communities consisting of autonomous individuals who seek to define their identities from fresh perspectives. Throughout her career journey and personal life, Songyi has explored the philosophy and characteristics of blockchain, such as community, autonomy, and decentralization. We are happy to have another story of why we should value and acknowledge personal identity and diversity from her valuable experiences as well as the self-sovereign identity project, which seeks to give people their own unique identities.[1]: Zentrepreneur is a newly coined term combining words ‘zen’ and ‘entrepreneur,’ and is used to refer to an entrepreneur who adheres to the core essence of values[2] “Identification for Development Global Dataset | Data”. data.worldbank.org.

Diversity in Blockchain Ser...

Hi readers,We are delighted to introduce to you a new series: [Diversity in Blockchain]. As Klaytn is dedicated to mainstream adoption of blockchain, it is important to explore the greater ecosystem and observe the works and visions of those who are contributing to this ecosystem. This [Diversity in Blockchain] series will be an opportunity to shed light on unique stories, works, and impacts that individuals around us are making.#squatforchange(Source: Instagram@3boys_1goal)#squatforchange is a trending hashtag that has recently echoed throughout Instagram. A man had to squat down to change his baby’s diaper in a men’s washroom that had no diaper changing station. After this post went viral on Instagram, many fathers shared their similar experiences. One said he had to take off some of his clothes and put them on the bathroom floor to take care of his baby’s diaper.The preconceived notion that mothers are the only ones to change diapers has given some men uncomfortable experiences with their babies at men’s washroom where there is no diaper changing station installed. Why do we still somehow believe that it is only women who take care of children? Washrooms are just one example. Many services and products we use in our daily lives may also be equipped with such prejudices and inconveniences without us even realizing them.There are, however, some efforts that seek to reflect the diverse demands of people to the services and products that we use.#toylikeme(Source: Toy Like Me Facebook)Toy Like Me, a campaign that first started in the U.K., calls on toy manufacturers to make toys that reflect various human physical features and characteristics. By playing with toys that resemble themselves, the children with disabilities or diseases can recognize that their differences are not so ‘different’ after all. They also learn to accept themselves just as they are. A number of big toy brands like Playmobil and Lego are attempting to reflect such diversity to toy design and manufacturing, and by doing so, they are sending a powerful message that everyone should be included and celebrated.#emoji(Source: Unicode Blog)The Unicode Consortium is a non-profit corporation devoted to developing, maintaining, and promoting software internationalization standards and data, particularly the Unicode Standard, which specifies the representation of text in all modern software products and standards. Last February, Emoji 12.0 data has been released with 59 new emojis, including emojis for hearing aid, wheelchair, mechanical arm and leg, cane, and guide dog. This update is the result reflecting the voices that there are not enough emojis to express the emotions and feelings of those who live with disabilities.-We live together with a variety of people with diverse characteristics whether they be gender, religion, language, race, or sexual orientation. In addition to such varying external features and appearances, we all have individual tendencies and characteristics, which we want to be able to express through the products and services we use. To meet such desires and needs, the services and products must be able to capture the diverse characteristics and individual behavior patterns of people. In particular, a kind of world that technology embodies should be able to reflect a broad spectrum of varying perspectives, because a kind of bias that the technology connotes could be rather frightening.Let’s take a look at the AI — Artificial Intelligence — cases. According to a Fortune news article published last October, Amazon has developed an AI-powered recruitment system based on people’s resumes accumulated over the past 10 years. This system, however, downgraded resumes with the word “women’s” in them, and also marked lower scores to those who graduated from women-only colleges. Amazon’s efforts to improve its system failed and ultimately had to kill the entire project in 2017.The results of an AI-powered beauty contest held by a group of scientists in Russia in 2016 are also a similar case. When a contestant sends her headshot, the artificial intelligence, supported by complex algorithms, would make evaluations on her beauty by examining various factors including facial features, symmetry, wrinkle marks, etc. However, because the system considered light skin-colored contestants to be more attractive, only 1 out of 44 finalists turned out to be a dark skin-colored contestant. Meanwhile, Google also had to officially apologize because Google Photos auto-tagged colored people as gorillas.It is dangerous to assume that technology can solve all the problems of this society. Technology is not a ‘cure-all.’ Only when those who develop and utilize technology have balanced and open perspectives can technology contribute towards creating more positive impacts with inclusivity and openness.-The blockchain technology is often dubbed as the potential game-changer for diverse industries and markets, and it is thus necessary for those who utilize blockchain to consider the potential issues of diversity and inclusion in advance. We need to make rooms for blockchain to grow into a safer and more reliable technology with robust security. It must be able to meet the diverse needs of end users and reflect such needs in blockchain application services.In addition, the distinct characteristics of blockchain technology also point that we must take diversity into a great consideration. The nodes in a blockchain network must reach a consensus in the process of recording and modifying data. In doing so, the process and standards of reaching a consensus as well as the governance model should be created in a systematic manner in order to avoid the unfair decision.The nodes are also rewarded in proportion to their contribution to the network. The same is true of the application services created based on this underlying technology. In the blockchain world, a new economic or social model can be established in which anybody who contributes to the network can benefit based on his or her contribution. That naturally leads to the importance of considering issues of how much incentives will be rewarded to whom in which occasions when designing a token economy.-Klaytn is a public blockchain platform. It is a playground upon which service providers and users can freely interact. In doing so, Klaytn strives to be as inclusive and universal as possible, not being wholly owned by any single entity. The ‘platform’ is supposed to be open for everyone. The more diverse stakeholders behave positively within the platform, the higher the platform’s value becomes.To this end, we Klaytn will use our ‘diversity lens’ when developing the platform and partnering with various service providers with whom we build together our ecosystem. Just as a person with poor eyesight wears glasses to see things more clearly and accurately, we seek to approach potential issues with inclusive and universal perspectives so that they can transform into new innovations. Such ‘diversity-lens,’ ‘gender-lens,’ and ‘minority-lens’ can hopefully contribute to taking greater opportunities and many more possibilities into consideration when developing our Klaytn platform.We plan to explore the greater blockchain ecosystem by working with those who make up this ecosystem with their diverse experiences and backgrounds. This [Diversity in Blockchain] blog series will attempt to shed light on their unique stories, their works, and the impacts they are creating. We hope this series can provide the opportunity to broaden our perspective with which we examine the blockchain technology and industry.Diversity in Blockchain Series #1: Why Diversity Matters to Us was originally published in Klaytn on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
