Privity honored being mentioned by Deloitte on Blockchain technology

Privity is honoured to have received mention in Deloitte’s article on Blockchain technology:

Customer loyalty and engagement can make or break companies, warns  a report  from the Deloitte Center for Financial Services on blockchain-based solutions for customer loyalty. That makes rewards programs a strategic investment for all types of organizations.

Deloitte , the second-largest professional services network in the world by revenue and the largest by the number of professionals, is very influential in the business world and its advice is regularly sought and followed. When it issues a report on loyalty programs and blockchain technology, many operators will listen.

“Loyalty rewards are also a type of digital currency, so it is only natural that the engine that enables Bitcoin to be transacted among multiple parties in exchange for services, goods, and even other monetary tender could do the same for loyalty reward points,” the report noted. “[Blockchain technology] is an ideal remedy for what ails loyalty rewards programs.”

Circa late November 2014, I received a call from my dear friend Sadiq

Hussain and my neighbour (we live 25 floors apart!) suggesting I meet with

his house-guest, Gregory Simon, who was in Dubai as a speaker at the first

Blockchain conference in the UAE. We met on the 30F of our building  and

after exchanging pleasantries got introduced to this almost “wunder-tech”

called Blockchain. My two maths degrees let me down initially but over the

months and several Skype calls later with Greg exercising utmost patience,

I got my epiphany moment, to which I uttered-“Greg, this is probably one of

the most exciting phenomena we are witnessing in our lifetimes since the

advent of electricity!”- a statement now indelibly imprinted in my brain.

Since then, Loyyal(fka Ribbit.me) completed a Seed round of funding, the

Dubai Government launched the Global Blockchain Council and more recently

launched the Dubai Futures Accelerators to which Loyyal got chosen as one

of the 31 inaugural cohorts. On Oct 9th at the DFA they showcased a live

demo to an audience of about 100 people and yesterday I read with humility

and delight the article above in BravenewCoin.com- needless to say, a proud

moment for Privity, hence the need to document and share this journey for

posterity.
