Fusion Adds Bariq Sikandari to Team as Director of Partnerships
Fusion is excited to welcome Bariq Sikandari as Director of Partnerships. Bariq’s focus will be on leveraging his network and business development skills to engage new partners across the private and public sectors. Additionally, Bariq will aim to improve the liquidity of the FSN token and has already begun negotiations with top tier exchanges.
A keen entrepreneur and salesperson, Bariq launched his first company at age 17 in the Event Management space before transitioning to Real Estate, where he ran a successful property development business.
Following his introduction to Bitcoin in 2015, Bariq became fascinated with its underlying blockchain technology. After tracking bitcoin and networking in the cryptocurrency and blockchain space, Bariq was well positioned to assist blockchain projects in business development and fund-raising in 2017. During this period, he also became an active contributor and token holder to numerous crypto projects, including Fusion. Bariq believes that blockchain technology will likely disrupt the Finance sector, and Fusion’s unique technology will become a leader in this transformation.
Bariq is particularly passionate about the implementation of blockchain technology into governance models, especially around expanding the financial opportunity for individuals living in third world countries.
In 2018, Bariq worked closely with a few South Asian governments to facilitate the introduction of blockchain technology to their infrastructure.
Over the next few months, Bariq’s goals at Fusion are three-fold:
- Building and growing Fusion’s ecosystem with new partners and governments who develop applications on top of Fusion’s protocol.
- Assist in obtaining listings for FSN on top exchanges around the world.
- Increase engagement of blockchain within government technology departments.
Fusion is thrilled to have Bariq join the team. His energy and ambition are infectious! We are certain he will bring exciting developments to Fusion and we look forward to sharing them with the community in the future.
