Sabanov has led the development of the Zumo App, ZumoKit Enterprise Solutions platform, and most recently, the Zumo Smartfolio, which enables users to view and manage their overall cryptocurrency assets seamlessly and calculates opportunities to maximise the buying positions for user’s portfolio.

Previously, Sabanov was Full Stack Blockchain Developer with Slovenian-based app specialist D.Labs, also working with mungoparc, SPRD.digital and Zabec.net. Before entering the blockchain sector in 2015, He founded Vragec.si, a creative design agency, and was Creative Director with Kontrast Marketing, also based in Slovenia.

“Zumo is leading the field in providing technologies that democratise access to financial services,” Sabanov said. “What makes Zumo different, however, is the non-custodial approach it takes in its platforms, meaning that whether you are a business operating on the ZumoPay payments platform, or a consumer on the Zumo App, you are truly in charge of your own finances. We are just beginning to realise the potential use cases of blockchain technology which is why I am delighted to take up this post and help further Zumo’s mission to bring the benefits of smart money to everyone.”
