Was invited to a talk organized by Productivity Nexus giving insights about our Malaysia National Productivity Blueprints and also about the current economic situations in China.
Up on stage was Professor Yijang from Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business – China who came and spoke about the economic situations in China and the challenges that’s currently being faced.
A bit about Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business ( CKGSB ) , its one of the prestige universities in China where its Alluminis suchs as Jack Ma and about 3000 CEOs from various Chinese companies collectively holds revenues of about 13.7% of China’s GDP.
One of the highlights was also our Malaysia National Productivity Blueprint which was the focus of MPC ( Malaysia Productivity Council ) to introduce new methods in increasing the productivity in mostly the F&B and Retail sectors.
It was really an interesting talk and was surprise that there were Govt initiatives to improve overall productivity levels in retail and f&b sectors.
There are 4 sets of KPIs in these areas which NPC are trying to achieve by engaging with local businesses and encourage growth in these areas.
Overall it was a interesting talk and met a lot of new faces as this was my 1st event this year which is NON tech / crypto related. LoLz.
So today’s hot topic in Malaysia in the blockchain space is not about how the market is doing however it more towards the announcement by the Finance Minister in regards to regulatory matters about funds thru ICOs or “digital currencies”
With this surprise announcement, literally it also places all Crypto exchanges in Malaysia in a chaotic state as there are no clear guidelines set for licensing these exchanges.
The announcement seemed to had come out without proper planning. the announcement was issued out by Ministry of Finance however the executioner would be Securities Commissions and there is no clarity in regulating it.
So in today’s event at Unblock Kuala Lumpur held in KL… It was obvious that the main topic of the day was around ICOs, STOs and how the announcement is effecting the Blockchain scene in Malaysia
I’m sure that the panelist was already expecting these questions however almost all answers would be just speculations.
In the next couple of months, I’m sure there would be more regulatory announcements would be made and guidelines will appear. Let’s hope that it’s for the better and encourage economical growth in Malaysia
Do follow the campaign task and you will not only get rewarded however you will support STEEM to get more visibility. I do encourage all of you to show strength as we are STEEM and this is our platform.
So after many weeks of teasers and trailers , finally TITANS started showing on NETFLIX. If you’ve seen the animated cartoon Teen Titans or a fan of the DC Universe and its TV series, you may be interested in watching this.
Led by Batman’s sidekick ROBIN, this TV series is really not too bad. And I must say its as good as the trailers.
Of course with scenes when RAVEN goes all ghosty on you , keeps reminding you of that movie The Ring. But in a good way.
So if you are just flicking thru NETFLIX and wanna watch something new, do checkout TITANS . So far I’m a few episodes in and liking it. What do you think ?

These are just some of the activity which we will share during our Bootcamp / Masterclass . For 2019 , we will surely see more and more apps which will launch off the STEEM Blockchain.
So if you are around PENANG, MALAYSIA on the 10th January. Do checkout our event below. Looking forward in seeing you there.
I’ve always wanted to experience how real interactive TV would be like and when Netflix announced their first move into interactive TV.. I was really looking forward in getting a taste of this new age of movies.
Netflix released Bandersnatch only a few days ago and last night I had time to watch it!
From almost just a few minutes into the movie you are then asked to decide the direction of this movie. From the most simple task of choosing whats for breakfast to crazy decisions of killing someone or chopping them up or hurrying them
Every decision will lead to a different outcome. So don’t be fooled thinking this movie is going to take 1hour 30mins… Its wayyyyy longer as you try your way to get to see multiple endings in different scenarios.
My honest opinion… Netflix really took watching TV to the next level and I’m sure this is just a glimpse of what the future of TV would be like.
What a stroke of Brilliance from Netflix… I wonder whats next. Black Mirror was just the perfect series to start this interactive TV with.
thanks to @penguinpablo for his daily stats ( source link )
What the graphs shows that we have a very vibrant community which consistently use the STEEM blockchain daily. This is mainly due to the fact that STEEM has become a part of a lot of people’s daily activity.
This is purely because there are so many apps which we can use to post to the Steem Blockchain. dTube, dSound, Fundition, Partiko or many others. These apps are commonly used as STEEM is the only blockchain that I’m aware of that has a very diverse community posting in many different ways.
Every single active community is also running their own activity among its members or collaborative efforts to have more users join this vibrant communities.
Daily Amount of Steem Powered UP & DOWN
As you can see over the past 1 week we also have seen many users powering up as price of STEEM is low now and steemians are taking advantage of this to power up more. ( source )
So this is why we are still planning for offline activities in the form of Steem Sharing Bootcamp Penang to introduce new users to STEEM and all the apps which they can use. We also would love to get to know more steemians face to face , this will enable us to answer any questions about STEEM directly. We do understand that this is a slow process however, running offline events are still great to have that very first engagement to help steemians to start their blogging journey.
I’ve already claimed 10 accounts to provide those who does not have an account who came for our offline events to get them started off as soon as possible. I guess many witnesses / projects such as @steemonboarding , @oracle-d and @steemhunt are already doing so.
So do invite your friends who would be in Penang, Malaysia which you have a hard time explaining what steem is or would love to introduce what this blockchain all about to register and come for our little sharing session.
