Our London Correspondent Nick Ayton, the Sage of Shoreditch, explores a new truth serum often overlooked, called the App Token. Also known as the Utility Token, it will change more lives than any other form of token. There’s often so much time and attention spent focusing on security tokens that deliver specific things (returns) for investors, founders and users in different ways. Security tokens also provide an on/off ramp into and out of the crypto world. However, we often forget the real transformational star is in fact the App (Utility) Token and not the Security Token.

The Head of Strategy is looking for incremental improvement compared to peers, the head of IT wants more money to spend papering over the cracks trying to hold tech that is struggling to keep pace, the CFO wants to cut costs and thinks too much is spent on IT anyway, and the Chairman often focuses on maintaining consensus hoping that each storm passes and they get away with just a few cuts and scratches.
