Nick Ayton or the ascent of a blockchain thought leader… Nick Ayton on the bitcoin generation: Nobody wants a centralized surveillance-based society that is watching your every move, telling you what to wear, how to behave and having control over you. Society is a construct. Play by rules and you will be looked after is a lie! An illusion set by the capitalist few that benefit from keeping the people off balance. And they will argue that someone has to make the decisions, take control and enforce law, as order is necessary, which few would deny. But now they fear the advent of decentralized technology delivering the opportunity to create new models of governance, of decision making and consensus without them. A system that has trust and transparency built in. We are entering a new era that will decide how society will be run and who makes the decisions as what we have today isn’t working.

NickAyton on crypto app tokes : It all happens very quickly… We remember Blockbuster but forget what really happened. A bricks and mortar business selling (renting) video cassettes and later DVDs was replaced by online consumption of video content (streamlining) as the Web became more efficient, faster, and as bandwidth increased as technology advanced time and again. It was technological advancement. And now Netflix is 30% of all Internet traffic. The sight of the Nokia CEO with his head in his hands where he said ‘but we did nothing wrong’ was astounding. Yet he single handedly failed to see a storm coming and Nokia went from market leader to gone in just a few years, as they failed to see the smart phone revolution being cooked up by Mr Jobs over at Apple.
