A few weeks ago, one of the most popular bitcoin merchants in the whole world and also a frontrunner when it comes to matters selling of in-game virtual assets known as OPSkins announced that they are soon introducing a new virtual asset trading platform known as WAX which stands for Worldwide Asset eXchange.

WAX is a Peer to Peer open market which is more focused on the selling and buying of virtual assets and has been built from the ground up on a new blockchain and smart contracts that are actually decentralized in a conscious and deliberate effort to make the process of buying and selling of virtual assets between users more efficient.

This comes in the backdrop of the realization that although OPSkins is the world leader in the trade of in-game virtual assets, the current system has a little drawback considering that it is centralized. However, all this is about to change as the organization moves closer to adopting the WAX technology which happens to be running on a new decentralized blockchain which will go a long way in addressing some of the biggest challenges of a virtual asset market namely fraud and fragmentation.

The 21st century has changed the way the people live. The integration of technology into the hobbies and the vices of the people have changed the society forever. Pastimes that are available to the people have transformed the way they live, and one that gets the highlight would be the introduction of electric cigarettes and vaping. With the introduction of the electric cigarettes and vapes in the early 2000s, many people have tried using the product and began sticking to it.

Electric cigarettes, or e-cigarettes, are considered superior over traditional smoking, and a lot of people prefers it because of its convenience. It is easier to use, and it does not require having a lighter wherever the user go. Another advantage in using the e-cigarette is that there are plenty of places where it can be lighted and smoked, compared to the traditional cigarette which is being outlawed in other places, especially in public spaces.

The selling of e-cigarette and vape is a thriving industry, and as of 2018, there are more than 400 known brands that manufacture these devices. Each device claims to be the best in the field, and only the users would know which one is the best, especially in providing smoking experience. Since their introduction in the early 2000s, the numbers of e-cigarettes and vapes that are being manufactured have climbed up, exponentially growing at a fast rate. The industry made record-breaking revenue of $7 billion in 2014, cementing the fact that it is indeed one of the major industries in the present world. Many companies have opted to build these devices, especially the companies which manufacture and sell traditional cigarettes. They are looking at the industry as a serious threat which can shut them down, so to survive, these tobacco giants have introduced their versions of e-cigarettes and vapes.

A majority of e-cigarette and vape devices are not sold in the traditional sense. Most of the tools are being sold online, and in the past few years, it has become a lucrative business option, especially to enthusiasts and users of the device. One brand, called O2Pur, has been demonstrating the world how the best e-cigarette and vape experience can be obtained. They are one of the leading online sellers of these smoking devices in the United States, and according to the management of O2Pur, they are receiving hundreds, if not thousands of orders every week. O2Pur claims that they have the best flavors in the country, and they are encouraging the e-cigarette and vape users to visit their shop online and see the difference. There are some options on how an individual could get hold of their products, but the easiest one would be emailing them using the address posted on their webpage.

Peter L. Briger is present Co-Chief Executive Officer of Fortress and joined the organization in 2002, following a 15-year-long career with powerhouse Goldman Sachs & Co. Initially, upon joining the Fortress team, Briger directed the real estate and debt securities business division because during that time the business wanted to diversify its core activities in private equity. The genius that Briger brought with him to the company centered on his insight into market assets that no one else wanted. His long-time expertise in Goldman Sachs’ Special Situations group—which he co-founded, had uniquely prepared him for his forthcoming role with Fortress. The Special Situations Group, which was notoriously secretive and tight-lipped about it’s extremely profitable transactions; has often been reported to be the principal source of Goldman Sach’s revenue both during and after Brigers’ heading of the division.

While still with the Special Situations group and at it’s peak, Peter Briger and his colleagues heavily bought and sold in global high-risk assets–like Thailand auto loans, distressed mortgages in Japan, an alcoholic beverage company in South Korea, Industrial aircraft, and British plants. The strategy was always to acquire assets that had gone into default with the main sources of the original loan. This could have been due to various factors, such as: fiscal instability, political pressure or any other reason that Goldman managed to capitalize on. Briger’s group would hold onto those assets until the markets stabilized and they were then sold for a hefty profit. Buy low, sell high. It appears so simple, but the skillful execution and expertise necessary to succeed in these highly volatile deals require world-class investment skills. Briger and his teams oversaw massive profits time and again.

Since leaving Goldman, the success of Peter Briger has not ebbed one bit. In the first quarter of 2015 alone, the Briger team successfully raised $ 4.7 billion for a new fund called “Fortress Credit Opportunities Fund IV”. That represented 87% of the total new funds raised by Fortress in that quarter.In recent years, Peter Briger found gold after the financial meltdown and wryly once referred to his business as the “garbage collection of financial services” in an interview.Even though the global financial landscape has more or less stabilized, Peter Briger still sees an excellent opportunity to take advantage of ailing assets, especially in the financial sector. When he’s not managing massive business maneuvers in his position as Co-Chairman with Fortress, Briger’s personal time is dedicated to more socially-conscious considerations—like serving on the board of Tipping Point, a non-profit organization serving low-income families in the San Francisco Bay Area; as well, as Caliber Schools, a network of charter schools committed to preparing students for success in competitive four-year colleges and beyond.

Servicing the food service industry is difficult work. Companies are constantly adapting and adding new products in order to drive consumers. This constant need for upgraded products puts a strain on companies in the food services industry. One one hand, obtaining new product can be difficult. It can require setting up factories and divisions in countries where producing the product is doable and makes sense financially. On the other hand, it requires a consistent ability to adapt and overcome obstacles related to acquiring these products in an efficient manner. One company that services the food service industry, in particular, has been doing well at adding products to their ever-growing brand portfolio.

OSI Industries is a great example of a company that is adapting to consumer needs through acquisition of already established markets. One such example is the acquisition of Flagship Europe via OSI. Flagship Europe itself had recently purchased Calder Foods a major manufacturer of fillings and sauces. Having the trusted Calder name, as well as Flagship Europe already bustling inventory of sous vide products and frozen poultry, made Flagship a target for OSI Industries. Acquiring the UK food service provider gave OSI a well-established network as well as ties to important products to serve consumers better.

Another example is that of Baho Foods in the same year. Baho Foods is a Dutch company that supplies the Netherlands and Germany with snacks and deli meat products. Baho has an emphasis on serving convenience foods. Acquiring the Dutch company was a bold and strategic move for OSI Industries. First, the Netherlands is a notoriously difficult region to break into for the meat processing industry. Its culture is unique and it’s laws and ordinances different from most other regions. Buying an already established company was a move that allowed OSI to instantaneously enter the region while also giving it some additional products to offer.

Between these two moves, OSI Industries was able to up its inventory to include pies, mayonnaise, sauces, sandwich fillings, deli meats, snacks, frozen poultry products, and more. These are all invaluable things to have, especially when they are already established in their region. Inventory can help companies that provide products to the foodservice industry retain loyalty, build trust, and give clients no reason to head over to competition when they want to add additional food items to drive customers. OSI made intelligent clinical moves in order to make these acquisitions happen, and they should serve as an example of fantastic acquisitions for the company.

When Hussain Sajwani completed his degree at the University of Washington and was hired as a contract manager by the subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company called GASCO, no one imagined he would soon become a billionaire through real estate. What was clear was that Hussain Sajwani was a very intelligent, driven young man. It soon became evident that he also had the vision and foresight to see the need for hotels to house business people flocking to Dubai. Sajwani was also among the first to take advantage of the Dubai’s government decision to sell property to foreigners.

 

Since Hussain Sajwani founded the property development company DAMAC Properties in 2002, it has enjoyed meteoric growth. Not only has he developed residential and commercial properties in Dubai, Beirut, Amman, Abu Dhabi, Jeddah, Riyadh, Doha and even London, he has also worked with current U.S. President Donald Trump to build golf courses and hotels. The president even mentioned Hussain Sajwani in his inauguration address. Sajwani has also invested in lucrative regional and global markets through his DICO Investment Company LLC and is now an internationally known business magnate.

 

Another of Hussain Sajwani’s very wise investments was the creation of a catering company in 1982, long before he became involved in real estate development. That catering firm which Sajwani still owns, has multimillion dollar contracts to provide food for U.S. troops stationed in the Middle East. The company also provides meals for large Western construction companies and other businesses with thousands of workers in the region. The way Sajwani has diversified his investments shows his business acumen and his deep understanding of finance and the value of long-term business contracts.

 

Still, even as Hussain Sajwani builds his business empire, he remains committed to charitable giving. It’s one of the tenets of his faith. While he has given to an array of charitable causes over the years, there’s one that’s particularly close to his heart. Through The Red Crescent Hussain Sajwani recently gave $2 million to purchase clothes and help improve the quality of life for children in need throughout the world.

‘’Every moment in my life shaped me into the successful real estate mogul.” Those are the words of Hussain Sajwani, the DAMAC owner who has managed to shape the world of real estate in Dubai.

 

Describing Hussain Sajwani

 

Sajwani is a prominent businessman, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. Moreover, he is the founder as well as the chief executive officer of the famous DAMAC Properties. Even though there is a lot of success linked to his businesses, it is factual that the DAMAC owner was not raised with a silver spoon in his mouth as he worked hard to pave up a career path. How? You may ask. Well, to understand his life story, let us travel down the streets of Dubai where he grew up.

 

Sajwani’s Early Life

 

Sajwani was born to hard-working parents. His father owned a shop while his mother concentrated on domestic care. At that moment, his father invested sufficient time in imparting entrepreneurial skills in him. Being a fast learner, he grasped some of the necessary skills in business unknown to him that he would apply the same skills in a different industry.

 

Education

 

As soon as it was time to join college for higher learning, Hussain Sajwani the DAMAC owner decided to pursue a course in medicine. Although that was his primary line of interest, he changed his mind before completing the coursework. Sajwani wanted to pursue business or better yet, a technical course that would allow him to practice in the industry of business. Consequently earning a full scholarship to the University of Washington, he majored in two courses; economics, and engineering. From the sessions, he learned how important it is to evaluate the specifics of an investment before venturing. Therefore, when it was time to pursue a career at GASCO, a leading oil, and company in Abu Dhabi, the DAMAC owner focused on the next move he would make to grow his business.

 

Business and Career Outline

 

In 1982, Sajwani the DAMAC owner started his entrepreneurial career in food catering. Within a short period, the business was declared a market leader, as it supplied more than 10,000 clients with food and catering services. As the company continued to grow, Hussain Sajwani learned that the government of Dubai allowed foreigners to purchase land. Therefore, he made his first purchase and branded the building DAMAC Properties. Until now, this business has expanded its presence over more than three states within the Middle East. It is right to say that the success of Hussain Sajwani is highly attributed to his focus and determination to excel despite the challenges he encountered while growing up.
