Blockchain technologies represent unprecedented business operations and economic applications to benefit the thousands of ORGANO customers and independent distributors around the world,” added Binn.
The agreement provides for each company to invest and equally share in the commercial value of newly created intellectual property. Some areas being explored where Blockchain will offer critical competitive advantage include: support for rapid expansion into new and diverse markets, trade finance, digital asset management, supply chain optimization as well as enhancing socially motivated services.
Holton Buggs, CVO and Global Brand Ambassador of ORGANO said, “ORGANO has strong sustainable growth potential based on high quality standards, continuous innovation, excellent management and highly sought after products. I look forward to our new ORGANO innovations showing up in the global markets and benefitting the thousands of ORGANO customers and distributors for years to come. I have recently been appointed as an executive advisor to Digital SkyNet’s ‘Ormeus’ subsidiary and the newly formed strategic joint venture company owned by ORGANO and Digital SkyNet. This new executive advisor role is additive to my long standing and continuing roles at ORGANO which include helping develop global distribution networks and helping ORGANO realize its strategic vision. This joint venture affords both companies the opportunity to identify, develop and monetize Blockchain related opportunities through the creation of the very first strategic joint venture to bring a leading direct seller of nutrition and beauty products into alignment with a highly innovative and successful Blockchain solutions development company.”
