Ma Huateng's internal speech: There is not much time left for certain businesses

On the 15th, Tencent held an internal staff meeting. The theme of this year's conference is cost reduction and efficiency increase. Ma Huateng pointed out many sharp issues one by one at the meeting, emphasizing that cost reduction and efficiency increase "need to form a habit":

"Time is running out for some of PCG's businesses"

Ma Huateng said that when competitors were expanding their scale, Tencent also followed suit. "When we saw others gain weight, we followed suit. It turned out that what we gained was fat, and we couldn't beat our opponents."

Take Tencent News as an example: If they can’t rise to the surface by themselves (self-financed), sink, or even have many problems, then there is not much time left for Tencent News.

"I don't believe in buying volume anymore"

Ma Huateng believes that if other companies can do it, it is the whole company that rushes to it:

"Shareholders are rushing forward, and every penny they lose is their own money, so that's possible. Otherwise, it won't be able to do the business of buying volume. This is not Tencent's core competitiveness."

"IEG used to say that part of the game is also a matter of purchases, but now I don't believe it." Tencent has stepped up internal audits and controls this year, and found that a large number of problems exist in the purchase business.

· The problems detected by anti-corruption are "scaring to death"

"After I read the (investigation results), I realized why we couldn't do many businesses. With so many loopholes being discovered, it was impossible to get up."

Ma Huateng said that this year Tencent has also introduced digital capabilities into anti-fraud. All Tencent’s reimbursement and external supplier data are collected. Internal audit and internal control can find most low-level problems through big data analysis. Tencent will continue to do so next year. Build this capacity.

· The video number is "the hope of the audience"

Ma Huateng said that the most eye-catching business of WXG (WeChat Business Group) is the video account, which is basically the hope of the whole audience (the whole company).

Tencent has made many attempts to combine short video and e-commerce. Ma Huateng said that now the video account has taken the first step and has established itself. In the future, it hopes to be closer to transactions and complete the closed loop of e-commerce.

 Building Web3, now most need immigrants of Web2

Compared with Web2, Web3 will most likely not be subversive but may be progressive. How to introduce more Web2 users into Web3 will be the most urgent challenge for entrepreneurs in the next stage.

Several talent influxes in the history of Web3 are closely related to Web2:

In 2009, when Bitcoin was born and the price fluctuated in 2012, a large number of programmers began to enter Web3;

In 2020, when DeFi and NFT are hot, financial and artistic talents will begin to pour in;

In 2022, with the peak of traditional Internet growth and layoffs of major factories, a large number of Web2 talents will begin to flow into Web3.

Wang Tianfan, a partner of BAI Capital, described that the Web3 industry may have "99% scammers" in the Bitcoin cycle in 2014, "95% scammers" in the ICO period in 2017, and "90% scammers" in the DeFi period in 2020. It might be down to "80% liars" now.

And the metric is the number of developers. A real builder will really start to develop.

According to Electric Capital data, the number of new developers joining Web3 every year has increased from 3,203 in 2014 to 34,391 in 2021, an increase of nearly ten times.

Many people in the industry believe that two years later, as the performance of Web3 infrastructure including Ethereum is further improved, this will drive the Web3 application layer to usher in a real explosion-by then, phenomenal applications with tens of millions of daily activities will will be born, and Web3 will truly "break the circle".
