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.”

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.

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.

Chris McGuire, BusinessCloud’s editor said:

We’ve ripped up the rule book…rather than limit ourselves to 101 names on our must-read lists we’ve taken off the brakes by publishing the names of 301 female entrepreneurs and pioneers of tech. One statistic that is trotted out is that only 17 per cent of people in the tech sector are women. We need to increase the number of women working in tech and we hope that by publishing a list of 301 female entrepreneurs and pioneers of tech, they’ll become role models to the next generation.’’

 

Ram Krishnna Rao, MarketOrders CEO said:

Revolutionising the jewellery retail industry with blockchain and AI

 

So much of the world has been revolutionized by technology yet the retail jewellery industry is still lagging behind.

 

The gold and diamond jewellery industry is still relatively untouched by the benefits of technology and this traditional industry which is run on trust has still not fully embraced the benefits that technology can bring to this sector.

 

It’s no longer enough to just have an online digital presence. The tech world is moving ahead fast with the rise of the blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI and machine learning (ML) that are all playing a critical role for the SME markets in general. these technologies are now being harnessed to authenticate products, speed up transactions and understand their customer profiles better in order to serve them in more new and innovative ways.

 

How SMEs can harness the power of new tech

MarketOrders is on a mission to harness the power of blockchain and AI in small retailers to bring in a new level of innovation.

 

At MarketOrders, we are excited about how innovation can be introduced into the retail industry via the application of the Blockchain and AI.

 

Since the gold and diamond jewellery industry is very new to technology and innovation, there is a huge unmet need in this market which will give rise to new opportunities and possibilities. This, in turn, will unlock a huge amount of potential.  Blockchain and AI will give superpowers to small retailers who are better able to compete.

 

Small retailers especially those who only have brick and mortar shops are bogged down with complex and chaotic systems as most of the processes are conducted offline.

 

Just imagine the efficiencies that could be created when the SMEs embrace digital processes and look to the blockchain and AI to help them better reach their customers and serve them in new ways.

 

Small retailers not only have the potential to transform their businesses but can change or adapt the way they interact with customers.

 

The Rise of Smart Retailing

In this digital experiential economy, the customers first point of interaction is now online and mobile through their smartphones. It is vital SMEs can embrace mobile technology and ensure they are able to reach their customers in the way they engage with technology. We call this the rise of Smart Retailing

 

Today there are more phones than people in the world. MarketOrders will democratize access to smart retailing in the way that Google democratized access to information.

 

Having MarketOrders as a technology partner, retailers do not need to build technology but just plug into our ready-made platform.

 

The Gold Jewelry and Diamond industry are ripe for disruption

The coming revolution in the space of Blockchain and AI into smart retailing can only come from digital upstarts such as MarketOrders rather than any retail unit or existing retailers collectively because today’s industry disruptors tend not to be incumbents.

 

In years to come, Blockchain, AI and Automation in business practice will be viewed like how people viewed the internet; an essential part of the business like smartphones are today.

Seizing the Blockchain Opportunity with MarketOrders

 

On 13th Nov 2018, our COO and co-founder, Sukhi Jutla spoke at the ‘Seizing the Blockchain Opportunity’ event held by London & Partners.

 

The sold-out event bought together professionals working in the blockchain space and those wanting to learn more about the real-life use cases of blockchain and where the opportunities are.

 

We are on the cusp of a blockchain revolution. The last year alone has seen major corporates gain interest in the distributed ledger technology, and an increasing number of companies are starting and scaling rapidly in the space.

 

The event saw three panel discussions, outlined below, and welcomed speakers from early-stage start-ups all the way to major corporations in the blockchain industry, to discuss the reality of the space, its major challenges and the greatest opportunities for applying this emerging technology.

 

 From L-R: Simone Maini, Abel Tedros, Anna Mostyn Williams, Sukhi Jutla

Here is a summary of the event with key takeaways

 

Panel 1: Opportunities and Dreaming Big: this panel discussed the major opportunities that are now possible thanks to blockchain technology, from creating a truly global marketplace to financial inclusion for the unbanked, digital identity solutions, supply chain transparency and more.

 

Key takeaways:

  • There are powerful use cases for blockchain that can be used for identification purposes to prevent fraud
  • As use cases on the blockchain increase, there could be issues with scaling
  • Users don’t need to understand the mechanics and technical aspects of the blockchain. Need to get them past that. Just how we use the internet and email without thinking about the technical work that happens underneath, we also need to start embracing blockchain and its benefits
  • We all use the internet and email but not all of us necessarily understand how it works!

 

Panel 2: What Keeps Me Awake At Night: this panel explored the main challenges that blockchain faces today, focusing on blocks such as limited transaction speeds, the energy usage of mining, the lack of regulation in the crypto space, amongst others

 

Key takeaways:

  • Can we truly get to a decentralised model or will we see the rise of centralised entities again in order to scale?
  • We need some level of regulation in order for investors to feel comfortable and confident in investing in ICOs
  • Educating the market and its end users in the possibilities of blockchain are important.
  • Giselle Frederick of Zingr explained how market vendors in Grenada, a small Caribbean island, were hesitant of the idea of using a blockchain enabled payment app until she explained they could use this technology to sell even more products to customers on the other side of the tiny island and be guaranteed payment!
  • Rodney Prescott of PWC talked about scaling, adopting blockchain with regards to the consensus mechanism and the rise of consortium structures.

 

Panel 3: How To Start A Career In Blockchain: attendees heard the personal stories of professionals who entered the space, who shared what led them to blockchain and how it is to work in the industry.

 

Key takeaways:

    • Have a growth mindset and actively learn about blockchain
      attend meetups, reach out to your blockchain role models and learn from them
    • If you can’t join a blockchain start up then create something yourself!
    • Follow key people on social channels and learn from them like Andreas M. Antonopoulos, Vitalik Buterin and Joseph Lubin,

 

  • Other useful resources shared:
