In the interview session, both of them talked about topics including blockchain fundamentals, trends and in the grander scheme of things like how does the Metaverse tie into the world of NFT and DeFi

Anndy Lian said: “It is always good to share with friends in the industry about what I am doing now. There are tons of things that I would like to share. This is a fantastic time to be in DeFi, driven by short and long term drivers from the explosive growth of the NFT market overtaking DeFi, the new breed of play-to-earn games or GameFi, to rise of the ‘metaverse’ as the next big thing, there’s also a lot to unpick which is exciting and a little daunting if you are new to it.”
