History was made at the 2018 London Book Fair when our co-founder, Sukhi Jutla, became the World’s First #1 Bestselling ‘Blockchain’ Author!
As well as being the co-founder and COO of MarketOrders, Sukhi is also an author and an advocate of the blockchain.
This week at the London Book Fair, Sukhi spoke on a panel about how the publishing industry would be shaken up with the introduction of blockchain tech. She also talked about the opportunities this would offer authors and why it was important to take part in this discussion now. Because blockchain is not disrupting industries tomorrow…its happening now.
Sukh is also the co-author of the official Blockchain For Books White-paper that talks in more detail about how blockchain will disrupt the traditional publishing arena and was launched at The London Book Fair which is attended by over 5,000 people from 60 + countries.
The London Book Fair is the global marketplace for rights negotiation and the sale and distribution of content across print, audio, TV, film and digital channels.
We are very excited and proud of Sukhi whose book, Escape The Cubicle: Quit The Job You Hate, Create A Life You Love, is the first book to be published on the blockchain. This means you can purchase the book with cryptocurrency.
Blockchain removes the need of a middleman…and that is also what MarketOrders advocates! Our platform allows gold jewellery retailers to purchase the products they need directly from the manufacturers and suppliers.
Being able to purchase directly from the source means you can get better prices and access to more products. The middleman no longer can inflate the market price or control what products can go to the market.
Watch this space as MarketOrders will also be releasing some exciting news about how we are going to use blockchain to better serve our customers.
