Director of Partnerships & Customer Success at Loyakk
I was introduced to Bitcoin early in 2017 and started investing small amounts in various exchanges to follow and learn the market. Through osmosis learning about more use cases, reading Satoshi Nakamoto’s white paper, and understating the power of the technology behind Bitcoin I quickly realized that distributed ledger technology resolves one of our biggest concerns with technology – TRUST. With this realization, I joined a rapidly growing Blockchain based startup to take advantage of these world-changing developments.
Early in my career, I worked in financial auditing and later led Customer Success with a SaaS platform company which was acquired. With this experience, I immediately grasped and appreciated some of the most important features blockchain technology brings: transparency, immutability, and auditability. I believe in the near future we will be using software with blockchain and smart contract technology without even realizing it.
Being born and raised in South Africa, a 1st world country on a 3rd world continent, I appreciate the social impact that blockchain brings to underserved and developing markets. With no prerequisites or arbitrary limits, Blockchain technology brings democratization to lower income and underserved markets.
I enjoy building early-stage technology companies to scale and collaborating with others in the ecosystem.
