Who is Nick Ayton and some of his blockchain thought leader ideas… Nick Ayton about the crypto generation: The power of sending money to someone without going through a central banking system is profound, a transaction that cannot be tampered with by dark forces. Be under no illusion: Bitcoin has rocked the people in power to their core, and they don’t know what to do next. I have been in technology for over 4 decades and seen mainframes, minicomputers, the PC revolution and the birth of networking (from its packet switching roots) and then the internet. Each had a profound impact on peoples’ behaviors, the nature of their work and productivity and the rules of the bigger game that is being played out. What I have learned is the blockchain technology offers a structural transformation to society both good and bad. Previously, technology has been held back by those that feed the hierarchy of power, making the tech conform rather than unleash its potential. Where core systems were designed around draconian tax, legal and accounting structures have since strangled businesses, becoming a centralized ‘system of record’ that forces all parties to keep their own version of the truth.
An all around the world well respected technology thought leader, Nick works with boards to help them understand the pervasive nature of new technologies that include Quantum Computing, Artificial Intelligence, QuantumAI, Nano Materials, VR and Blockchain, as opportunities and threats for business operating model improvement, customers and the top line growth.

NickAyton on crypto app tokes : I will say this only once… Ignoring Blockchain is dangerous. Any company director that does not take Blockchain seriously, bother to find out about it, or come up with a plan will be viewed as a breach of their responsibilities towards shareholders. They are exposing the business to unnecessary risk and, having been warned, could be held personally accountable. Yes, strong words. CEOs, the Chairman, and their boards do not have sufficient awareness of technology and so very often wrongly diagnose the storm as a passing shower. They underestimate the degree of change and a ‘follow the herd’ mentality that many industries suffer from.
