MarketOrders COO interviewed by DMN at Fintech Inn

Our Co-Founder & COO, Sukhi Jutla, was interviewed by DMN while speaking at Fintech Inn last November.
The journalist, Chris Wood, wrote:
More than just banking, blockchain technology brings fintech applications to other verticals. Sukhi Jutla is the co-founder and COO of UK-based MarketOrders, which uses fintech innovation to create an online marketplace connecting every point in the supply chain for jewelry suppliers and independent retailers. In the way that diamonds and other precious gemstones are individually certified, MarketOrders currently achieves the same trackability for gold in the supply chain. There is also a blockchain payment protocol layer on top of the supply infrastructure to manage payments, because there can be up to a two-week delay in money transfers, which can make or break an independent jeweler, according to Jutla.
In addition to exchange of ideas and business opportunities for MarketOrders, Lithuania is also a source for recruiting new tech professionals in a highly competitive hiring market.
“Because fintech is so new, there aren’t many people who understand it,” said Jutla. “There’s not much tech talent, so there’s a fight for the talent pool,” she explained, adding that Lithuania is “a key region to build our business and to expand.”
