Job Appointments | April 27, 2018 By:

Blockchain and AI-driven personalized shopper Shopin has named veteran blockchain strategist and entrepreneur Brad Bulent Yasar to its board of advisors. An angel investor and blockchain, cryptocurrency expert, Yasar is the founder and managing partner of KrowdMentor, a strategic advisory firm for cryptocurrency and blockchain-focused organizations

Yasar has founded and scaled dozens of companies from inception to maturity over the last 20 years. He serves as COO of d10e, the leading global conference on decentralization, and he is the co-founder of the Blockchain InvestorsConsortium (BIC), a 100-member group of investors that has allocated more than $5 billion dollars to blockchain and cryptocurrency projects.

“Having Brad join our brain trust of industry experts underscores the importance and timeliness of Shopin’s mission to uniquely solve the current-day data disconnect between retailers and shoppers,” said Eran Eyal, CEO of Shopin. “As a decentralized shopper profile built on the blockchain, Shopin is building the most valuable contextual understanding of user and purchase data, and it’s vital to us that users own and manage their own data assets. But that can only be done through blockchain technology, which enables attestablity to the first-party data that is being leveraged in our product recommendation and advertising model.”

“It’s a great honor to come on board as an advisor for Shopin, one of the most exciting and promising blockchain businesses poised to radically uplift and redefine the retail industry by offering a decentralized secure data storage solution for users that also rewards them with the Shopin Token,” said Yasar. “It’s a passion point of mine to focus my energy and expertise only on businesses that are positively disruptive in how they reshape the world we live in — for all of us, not just a select few.”

Shopin recently hit a milestone Proof of Concept when company engineers and technologists were able to prove the physical function of the Shopin token as an accountable and attestable utility that can move between a retailer and a Shopin user as intended, confirming the Shopin model and enabling the company to scale quickly as it approaches its official launch in Q3 of this year.
