Get to know Nick Ayton and some of his blockchain thought leader thoughts… Nick Ayton on the bitcoin generation: A system that supports the power games of those calling the shots, as this is what it was designed for. A system based on post-industrial revolution structures entering mass manufacturing where the nature of work was designed and packaged to be measured in a hierarchy that became the school of management for almost 100 years. It infected all businesses with frictional costs, a landscape for politics and imposing layers of unnecessary management. A generation of worthless and unnecessary jobs backed by regulation to make sure certain people had a role and could drink from the trough. There are a couple of issues. When people realize they have been sold a lie and Bitcoin offers something different, they want to take back control. The liberation journey begins offering new tools to create your own economy, be your own bank and to trade the value you hold, without friction. This is the crypto way.

NickAyton about crypto app tokes : In Blockchain nobody knows how long you have, 12, 24, or 36 months…as things are already moving very fast… I speak to management all the time and I don’t know where they get their information. They seem to have a crystal ball and be very well informed, and yes many have heard of Blockchain, but their conclusion there is nothing to worry about, apparently they have 5 to 10 years – Pulitzer Prize winner, Thomas Friedman’s phrase ‘I’ll be gone, You’ll be gone’ sums it up nicely. In other words, when the &*%$ hits the fan, I will be retired. But as regulation changes, directors will be held accountable and bonuses will be paid back from your retirement home wherever you may settle.
