Kardiz has been founded by Yannick Losbar, a seasonned entrepreneur who has worked for several years in various sectors of the payment industry such as payment processing, digital (but not yet decentralized!) currencies, and premium phone billing (Voice/SMS+).
In 2011, he launched one of the first "Mobile phone credit to Paypal" services in the world, NoelCash, to enable teenagers and other unbanked populations to fund their PayPal accounts in a quick and easy way. Following the sale of NoelCash in 2014, he discovered the world of bitcoin and realized how inconvenient the existing buying/selling methods were.
Yannick has since made several appearances and lectures at bitcoin conferences such as Inside Bitcoin and contributed for several months to CryptoCoinNews while working on the release of Kardiz.
