MEET THE MARKETORDERS TEAM – KRYSTIAN OZOG, Chief Customer Care Officer

Have you ever wondered who is behind MarketOrders’ success?

At MarketOrders, we believe that the team is critical to a company’s success, which is why we’ve decided to highlight our fantastic talents in this series of blog articles. 

Today, you’ll find out more about Krystian Ozog, Chief Customer Care Officer, who’s been part of the team since the very beginning of MarketOrders. 

International background

Krys was born and raised in Poland, where his core education took place. 

In 2005, he moved to the UK and started working in construction while pursuing his passion for martial arts at GMMA Academy.

In 2013, Krys decided to focus on becoming a professional fighter and started working for a few digital startups run by Ram Krishnna, his martial arts coach and now CEO of MarketOrders. He also became Managing Director of non profit organisation called “British Sports Youth Trust” as well as Trustee and Volunteer for a number of other charities and community organisations.

His hard work and determination lead him to being a World Champion as well as an asset and an inspiration for MarketOrders.

His MarketOrders journey

As a Chief Customer Care Officer, Krys takes care of the products’ journey as well as MarketOrders customers. He ensures the quality of the products is top level and that they are being delivered directly to our customers safely, securely and on time.

He said: “I make sure that our customers are happy with both the products and our services. I also learn from them, adapt our services to their needs and always look for new ways to improve MarketOrders offering.”

Krys is a strong believer that new technologies have the power to change lives; he gave us his opinion on blockchain technology: “I am amazed and very excited about blockchain technology. I think it is a ground breaking technology that is already changing the world. It is a perfect fit for many industries, especially gold and diamond jewellery. It makes our revolutionary platform even safer and more secure and transparent.”

Part of the team since the very beginning, Krys has evolved and seen evolving MarketOrders through its startup journey, from a concept to an award winning business: “ 

Being a part of MarketOrders from the beginning has been a lifetime experience.

“I have been taking part in all possible operations at different stages of the development.

We’ve got some amazing professionals joining the team for the last couple of years. I think the team effort, enthusiasm and cooperation during our Crowdfunding campaign has built up the team spirit and is the most memorable event to date.”

An endless ambition

Krys is passionate about people, team work skills, work ethic, and attention to details, which he has built through sports and professional experience. He is also open minded and always looking for ways to improve himself and his work. What makes him feel happy is to jump into the unknown and support all kinds of operations that make him challenge himself and grow.

If he’s already reached to top in his sport career, Krys has ambition for this professional career and charity engagement too! Here is where he sees himself in 5 years: “In 5 years time I see myself help developing MarketOrders branches worldwide and help impacting other industries through the use of our technology. 

I see myself taking our GMMA Academy and non for profit organisation British Sports Youth Trust to another levels, opening our own gyms, training, inspiring and helping multiple people who will also join our quest.”

Co-Founders’ opinion

Sukhi Jutla, Co-Founder & COO: “Krys is a core team member having been with us from the start. He has a great can-do entrepreneurial attitude and always finds a way forward. He is an asset to the team and the company.”

Ram Krishnna, Co-Founder & CEO: “Krys is a very dedicated and passionate MarketOrders team member as well as a the greatest martial artist I ever trained. I have known Krys for over 10 years and he is a very hard working man and always looking to learn new things. He is curious, courageous and committed to deliver excellence.

If there is any other words more powerful to replace what I have said then I would replace it with that words. He is certainly an irreplaceable definite asset for me personally, and MarketOrders.”

Krys’ favourite quote

“It takes generosity to discover the whole through others. If you realize you are only a violin, you can open yourself to the world by playing your role in the concert.”

BUSINESS SUCCESS: SUKHI JUTLA AND MARKETORDERS.NET ON VIKING BLOG

Introducing the latest instalment of our Business Success blog series. Last month, we spoke to Selina Johnson about her Virtual Personal Assistant service Selina & Co. This edition sees us talk to Sukhi Jutla, founder of MarketOrders.net, an online B2B platform for the gold and diamond jewellery industry

 

What is the story of MarketOrders.net in a nutshell?

MarketOrders was created because of my frustration with the inefficient way the supply chain in the gold and diamonds jewellery industry was working…or should we say NOT working! Every step in the process was done offline and in person due to the high value nature of the products. My co-founder and I sought to make the supply chain easier for small retailers to access the products they needed by using innovative tech to make the transactions faster and more secure. Our platform now makes it easier for suppliers and independent retailers to connect.

How do you stand out from the competition?

MarketOrders stands out from the competition because we are the only online platform that uses tech end to end for the customer journey. What this means is that our independent retailers and suppliers are able to view the products they need online from a global catalogue, order products online, pay for them online and have them delivered straight to their door. This is unheard of in the gold and diamonds supply industry where many transactions are still done face to face.

Tea or coffee?

It has to be English Breakfast Tea!

Who is your business role model and why?

I’m inspired by business people who persist against the odds to bring their vision to life even when everyone around them tells them it cannot be done. In this vein, Jeff Bezos and Howard Schultz’s success stories inspire me.

What is your recipe for a productive day?

I start my day off with meditation and journaling for self- reflection time. This is followed by a protein-based breakfast like eggs and of course a good cup of tea! I spend the mornings doing ‘deep work’ which means I tackle the hard stuff first and allow no distractions from my phone. Lunchtimes are gym time and the afternoons are for meetings. As long as I follow this structure on most days, I feel I am productive as I get the most important things done in the morning.

 

 

What is your management style?

I am learning more and more to let go and delegate as my team expands. I prefer to trust my staff with tasks and give them the freedom to come up with their own solutions, as opposed to just telling them what they need to do.

What advice would you give to an aspiring startup company?

Hard work should not be dismissed. Building a business requires a lot of hard work, persistence, patience and belief. Trusting that your work will pay off.

What has been your biggest business challenge, and how did you overcome it?

Turning down £250k from a VC was hard as most startups struggle with resources and cash flow. It takes courage to stand up for your values and fight for what you believe is the right thing for your business. I overcame this hurdle by learning more about how to raise funds and never giving up. I am now about to launch my fundraiser on Crowdcube.com in 3-4 weeks and I will raise the funds I need on my terms.

What will the future bring for MarketOrders.net?

We are about to launch our crowdfunding campaign to raise £500k to drive exponential growth for the next phase of MarketOrders growth journey. We are looking to expand across Europe and continue to grow our amazing team.

How do you maintain a good work-life balance?

Taking care of my mental, emotional and spiritual well being has helped me to maintain a good balance. It’s important to recognise when you feel you need to step back and take a break and not feel guilty about taking to rest and recover. I have also found my work to be immensely rewarding. I love what I do, and this really helps too!

MARKETORDERS CO-FOUNDER QUOTED IN BTCNN

Investor May Have Sold $1.5 Billion Of Gold To Buy Bitcoin As Price Spikes.

 

An investor puked about 11,000 gold futures contracts into the market recently. This increased the supply in the market and thereby sent gold’s price tumbling down to its lowest since January. Meanwhile, there was a spike in the price of Bitcoin.

Gold Puked and Bitcoin Spike

As the price of Gold tumbled to its lowest since January, Forbes posted an article titled “Bitcoin Is The New Gold” the same day. This also coincides with a spike in the value of Bitcoin. Well-renowned crypto influencer, Joseph Young took to social media as he tweeted that the entire market is seeing major greens with bitcoin’s price rising by almost 3%. This took place after the Bitcoin price has been lingering in the range of $5,000 and 5,050 for a while.

In response to Young’s tweet, Ran NeuNer, a well-known crypto expert and the founder and CEO of Onchain Capital, a crypto investment and advisory business, tweeted that “Sorry it was me. I placed my buy orders..”

Meanwhile, though it may seem like a sarcasm, there could be a correlation between the investor that puked Gold and the sudden spike of Bitcoin. Obviously, this brings forth the debate of Bitcoin being the digital gold. If it is possible for an investor to desert gold for Bitcoin, hence Bitcoin could be the Gold that its dominance will become prevalent with time.

This is especially made more explicit with the events such as Venezuelan crisis, as the Bank of England refused to give back the gold held by it to the nation, this fuels bitcoin’s usage as gold.

Founder and partner at Morgan Creek Digital, Anthony Pompliano, commented regarding this matter that “Venezuela’s request to withdraw its own gold of worth $1.2 billion from the Bank of England getting denied is the reason we should turn to bitcoin and the cryptosystem of financial transaction. This is another down for the Bankers and the banking system not letting the individuals to access their wealth.”

Bitcoin, the Digital Gold

The probable reason for a dump of gold for Bitcoin is summed up in the words of the founder and chief operating officer of MarketOrder Sukhi Jutla; he noted that “Bitcoin is still going strong after a decade and has proven itself to be a real and worthwhile use case. I believe it does have the potential to become digital gold.” Jutla stated this while replying to the question of bitcoin becoming the digital gold recently.

Perhaps, Bitcoin becoming the digital Gold is a subject of time. The prospects thus far have proven this.

Sukhi Jutla Becomes Women’s Entrepreneur Ambassador of Westmont Enterprise Hub

Blockchain entrepreneur and MarketOrders Co-Founder Sukhi Jutla was recently chosen by Westmont Enterprise Hub to become their Women’s Entrepreneur ambassador. This new vibrant start-up facility, which is part of University of West London (UWL), aims to support and encourage entrepreneurship.

 

 

 

Empowering entrepreneurs

Westmont Enterprise Hub will link entrepreneurs with investment, business support, and University expertise to help them succeed and is a major boost for start-up businesses in the region.
With already more than 20 start-ups and 450 members, the Hub has connections to more than 500 businesses and plans to double its number of start-ups by the end of the year.
Sukhi commented: ‘The Hub is a wonderful initiative to cultivate and spark the incredible entrepreneurial talent growing in West London. The Hub benefits from the facilities of the University as well as connections to investors as well as other peer groups. West London has always been a thriving entrepreneurial area and its fantastic to see this infrastructure to support this thriving ecosystem.’

Laurence Geller CBE, Chancellor, University of West London, added: “Future growth in the economy depends on more people having the skills, knowledge and confidence to start new businesses. Through the Westmont Enterprise Hub, the University is supporting and inspiring students and the local community to achieve their dream of starting or growing a business.”

 

 

An Ambassador to lead the way

Sukhi’s role will involve advisory, inspiration, and leadership. Experience is gold, and Sukhi has got a lot of it through her career. Graduating from Royal Holloway, University of London after attending the local Ealing college and working in corporate finance, Sukhi wasn’t meant to be an entrepreneur. After a decade, she left the corporate world and explained her transition to entrepreneurship in her book ‘Escape the Cubicle: Quit the job you hate. Create a life you love’.
After 10 years of being an entrepreneur, several ups and downs and a few mistakes, she has become a fulfilled business woman and a thought leader in the tech space. Indeed, she has been recognised by a number of industry awards including the Asian Women of Achievement Awards, Management Todays ’35 Women Under 35′ and named a Top 100 European Digital Pioneer by The Financial Times and Google.

Sukhi gave us her insight on what it’s like to be an entrepreneur: ‘Most people think of the Richard Branson types of personalities when they think about entrepreneurship but it’s not always like that! I believe we all have the entrepreneurial spirit and it can be expressed in many different ways. My experience brings with it real insider knowledge on what it’s really like to be an entrepreneur and grow a business from scratch, how to deal with setbacks and how to keep moving forward. I will share my learning with the Hub community and encourage more people to consider stating a business, especially in West London.’

MARKETORDERS COO QUOTED IN CHINESE NASDAQC

Bitcoin is replacing Western Union and MoneyGram and changing the global money transfer industry

 

It is reported that Bitcoin (BTC) can completely change the global remittance industry. Currently, more than $600 billion is moved annually from different countries, including the United States.

Cryptographic currency is also a great tool for smaller, cheaper and faster transactions. Virtual currency makes the whole process error-free and untrustworthy.

In a conversation with MarketOrders Chief Operating Officer BlockPublisher, Sukhi Jutla commented:

“Bitcoin is the first use case for payments and financial transactions. Therefore, its relevance to the remittance industry is very high and relevant. It is a proven model and one of the most trusted encryptions.”

The Money Transfer Operator (MTO) is an important participant in the entire remittance process because it oversees remittances sent to another country. MTO allows individuals and companies to remit money to the country and pay for services. MTO is supported by remittance software providers (RSPs) such as the well-known MoneyGram and Western Union.

There are only a few large companies on the market, including MoneyGram and Western Union. They have multiple locations and jurisdictions, and they are known all over the world. In addition, they do not have a fixed transaction cost and their share varies by location.

Still, the remittance industry should perform better, reduce costs, and improve trading time.

Bitcoin may be a very useful solution to these problems. Digital currency ensures the security of transactions and the speed of transfer. At the same time, the transaction can be verified without the participation of a third party. Although it is not free, the Bitcoin network has the lowest cost compared to existing systems.

There have been companies trying to release their own virtual currency to improve their services and still control the way transactions are handled. JPMorgan is currently developing JPM Coin. As Mark Moss, founder of Signal Profits, said, these companies are not aware of how cryptocurrencies will replace their businesses.

With Bitcoin, people have real ownership of their money and funds. They can also trade funds on a global scale, anytime, anywhere. In the future, Bitcoin can be a replacement for current systems.

MARKETORDERS COO GETS COVERAGE IN CRYPTO MEDIA FOR HER ADVISORY ROLE ALONGSIDE THE MAYOR OF LONDON

London Mayor Enlists Blockchain Entrepreneur into City’s New Skills Business Partnership  

 

The Mayor of London chose the Market Orders co-founder to become a part of a handpicked group from across London’s businesses in a partnership that will enable him to recreate the city’s skill system. The initiative hopes to better the needs of employers in the face of Brexit challenges and continued automation, according to a report from The Fintech Times.

Blockchain Bestselling Author

Sukhi Jutla is a renowned entrepreneur who has authored three books which made global headlines in April 2018. She then became a top-selling blockchain author and earned a spot among the U.K’s top 100 Women in Tech besides being named a Top 100European Digital Pioneer by Google and The Financial Times.

Commenting on her appointment, Sukhi stated:

“I am proud to be representing the voice of entrepreneurs and small business owners, especially those working in frontier technology areas such as blockchain and artificial intelligence, to ensure we create a suitable and responsive city-wide skills system for all Londoner’s.”

 

The partnership is meant to appraise the Mayor on skills and education provisions in assisting businesses to access talent, especially in response to a new set of challenges facing the city like Brexit and automation. The mayor plans to publish a new Skills and Employment Vision later this year.

 

Mayor Sadiq Khan said:

“In June 2018, my Skills for Londoners (SfL) strategy laid out my ambition to create a city for all Londoners, in which everyone can access the skills they need to succeed in a thriving economy. Today I’m delighted to announce my new Skills for Londoners Business Partnership.”

 

Deficiency in Numeracy and Digital Skills

The Skills for Londoners (SfL) program is the first dedicated post-16 skills and adult education strategy produced by a London Mayor. It sets out the skills challenges London faces, along with priorities and actions required to make the London skills system the envy of the world.

Key priorities include empowering all Londoners to access the education and skills to participate in society and progress in education and work, meeting the needs of London’s economy and employers now and in the future and delivering a strategic city-wide technical skills and adult education offer.

According to the Mayor, many Londoners lack access to the opportunities that the city provides as a result of low levels of qualifications, particularly in literacy, English language, numeracy, and digital skills.

According to recent research by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), only three percent of people in the UK have ever bought a cryptocurrency while an entire 73 percent of the population has never heard about cryptocurrencies or how to define them, even as a UK MP vouches for payment of taxes in crypto.

London calling for blockchain entrepreneur

 

The Mayor of London has handpicked a blockchain author to join an elite group of key influencers selected from the city’s businesses.

MarketOrders co-founder Sukhi Jutla was chosen by mayor Sadiq Khan to be part of the group charged with shaping London’s skills system.

Jutla – an award-winning entrepreneur and author of three books – made headlines a year ago by becoming the first number one best-selling author covering blockchain.

She was also recently named as one of the UK’s Top 100 Women in Tech, and was listed as a Top 100 European Digital Pioneer by The Financial Times and Google.

Proud

“I am proud to be representing the voice of entrepreneurs and small business owners, especially those working in frontier technology areas such as blockchain and artificial intelligence, to ensure we create a suitable and responsive city-wide skills system for all Londoners,” she told Coin Rivet.

“The Business Partnership will play an essential role in ensuring that London’s economy is responsive to the changing skills landscape, especially when it comes to the digital and technological shifts occurring.”

The group will be expected to advise the mayor on how skills and education provision can help businesses access talent, particularly in response to a range of challenges including Brexit and increasing automation.

It is understood the mayor will publish a new ‘Skills and Employment Vision’ document later this year, which will be closely linked to his ‘Local Industrial Strategy’, due to be published at the same time.

The mayor, Sadiq Khan, explained his Skills for Londoners strategy in 2018 laid out his ambitions to “create a city for all Londoners” by granting access to skills for anyone who needed them.

Talent

“Involving London’s employers and businesses to meet this ambition is at the heart of this, and I’m delighted to announce my new Skills for Londoners Business Partnership, made up of leading figures from businesses of all sizes and sectors, who share my passion for supporting London’s talent,” he explained.

“I look forward to working with them as they play a central role in our efforts to maintain London’s global position as a great place to work, invest, and grow a business.”

The Business Partnership will play a key role in shaping both documents, which will set out the next steps for delivering on the mayor’s priorities such as new policies to address emerging challenges, and will make the case for more funding to be devolved to London.

Other key appointments to the group are Rajesh Agrawal (Deputy Mayor for Business and Chair of the Business Partnership), film and TV executive Nahrein Kemp, Aurea Jones of Barts Health NHS Trust, and Optimity founder Anthony Impey MBE.

The post London calling for blockchain entrepreneur appeared first on Coin Rivet.
