The industries where Blockchain-based tokenized platform will disrupt

The key issue here is where we can see the real use-cases based on blockchain technology.
First of all, I strongly believe that the blockchain will change a digital content marketplace with the tokenized economy system. There is obvious motivation for a content creator if someone gets a reward at the right value on a digital creation. Many creators have difficulty in making monetization in the current marketplace and there are so many middlemen between creators and a digital platform. The decentralized token economy will encourage creators to upload their own contents on the market which will make a new digital content marketplace much more activated.

Another idea where we can find out a benefit of blockchain is any industry that gathering all the DB from all the users will create a new value-added service. For example, we can imagine each owner of a pet will upload some health data of a pet and get a reward. Once we have a big data on pet’s health data, we are likely to provide users with not only a reward but something new valuable insights.

Also, online security is another one we can expect with benefits of the decentralized system.
As more community participation and improve a infrastructure of the blockchain, the future will be much brighter.


Moving to Silicon Valley

When you are thinking of moving to Silicon Valley, the first step is to get a proper visa from the USA embassy. You should get an appropriate VISA besides of ETA, B1/B2 if you are going to stay longer than six months. (See the inserted picture)

With a US VISA, you have to take following actions in order.

  1. To book the airline ticket to get to the USA
  2. Packing up stuff to move and ship all the luggage to the USA (Assuming you wouldn’t be able to know an address until you find a house you will live in)
  3. Onboarding to the Airline
  4. On arrival, you have to open a bank account since you have to spend all the expenses from now on; therefore, it is one of the most urgent things to do as soon as possible. You can find Bank of America’s brand most frequently.
  5. Now, it is time to find a car because public transportation in Silicon Valley is not as good as in any other big cities and it is also quite expensive. If you have a family with children, you might as well buy two cars, one for a primary vehicle and the other for a secondary one.
  6. You should also register two cars to the California DMV, which stands for Department of Motor Vehicles.
  7. Now, it is time to find a house you will resident. That is the most critical moment to make a right decision considering your budget and educational environment and some other factors that you would really care for. The duration of a leasing contract usually is one year, and it is likely to be a hassle to move once you settled down in an area.
  8. With a leasing contract and some proofs of your residency, you should go to the public school districts and submit to be allocated to a school in that area.
  9. You also need to make a contract for car insurance as well as renter insurance. (There are several large insurance companies, but State Farm and Farmers insurance are most common in California)
  10. And now, you will purchase things like furniture, electronic appliances including others to live.

You have to take a driving test to get a driving license which will be your photo ID. A driving test is included both in written exam and field driving test. (I am going to cover all the details later posting)

You become a US residency.

You can follow the reverse way if you go back to your country.

Differences in perspective and self-criticism

Translated by Google Translation.

<Differences in Perspective>

When I was in Dell Korea ten years ago, what my manager said was still memorable.
I talked to the manager for a while about many issues, problems, and troubles in the workplace. Then, the manager said, ‘Seonghwan, do you know the funny thing? More than 70% of workers think that they are working harder than the company or their managers think and do their job better than the company or their managers think.

However, in reality, the company or the managers recognize only 10% ~ 20% of people who work well and the rest do not know what they are doing.

Could it be compared to the ‘difference of view’ that my experience is now being talked about 10 years ago? It seems to be a parallel theory. The difference in position can lead to a difference in individual performance. In other words, in my position (perspective), ‘I work so hard …. I work so well, why do not you know the company?’ But about 70% or more of managers think they do most of the unnecessary work. Is the story going too far? Anyway, I think it is necessary to have the ability to see what you are doing objectively from the manager’s or company’s perspective.

<Ability to self-criticize>
One day, junior, an expert in the field of personnel, comes up. “Sir, do you know that a person is a genuinely talented person who has a strong self-criticism ability? Those who know how to objectively identify their own abilities and positions, who are critical of themselves, have great growth potential, We have to pick talent. ”

It is not an era of solitary pride that only oneself is proud of their ability in this age. The ability to empathize with other people’s opinions, that is, the EQ should be high, and conversely, those who communicate their opinions unilaterally are not aware of it in easy words. EQ is low. Such a person will usually try to occupy more than 70% of the conversation without understanding the atmosphere around him. If I think I’m occupying most of the meeting or conversation time, I should be able to stop quickly. Let’s look around. Do you still think your colleagues listened to your story?

One of the ways to switch topics is to ask the other person. You have to ask participants questions and draw others.

Let’s develop self-criticism ability from an objective point of view through various perspectives.
