March 8, 2020
Get to know Nick Ayton and some of his tech business thoughts… An internationally recognised technology thought leader, Nick works with executives to help them overcome 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.
Nick Ayton and the crypto generation: As a sixties child, I was aware of this loud revolution, the music, the fashion and the different way of thinking, and yes, I hated the Beatles’ and Elvis’ music and still do. But they played their part. It was The Time in the 20th Century to be alive, to be involved, to make your mark as the London scene demonstrated. Even the FBI and MI5 perceived this as an infection as something they had to deal with. A new liberalism, a new permissiveness was sweeping the western world as society broke with post-war years and the young started to shape the world we have today.
Nick Ayton has worked more than 4 decades in tech fields, trasforming businesses and deploying the latest tech for competitive advantage. He has the knack of making the complex feel familiar and gets to the issue quickly. He gets you thinking and helps you take action, to have the right plans in place for what is to come. He is a Writer, Speaker and Lecturer about Blockchain and ranks in some lists as one of the most influential Blockchain experts on a global scale. He was named as a Fintech 100 Influencer for 2017 and number 21 at the rise blockchain Top 100. He has chaired various Blockchain events and has been a keynote speaker to various events. He has also runned sessions for boards and hosted Blockchain Hackathons.
Blockchain doesn’t discriminate, treating all industries the same. But it is more destructive to some sectors more than others. Any sector that acts as a ‘middleman’ will be first to be disintermediated, a horrible expression I know, lets say ‘destroyed’ then. Any layer in any industry where the core services is checking, validating, settling and matching will be gone! I get great access to entrepreneurs building Blockchains for all industries – from new banking platforms, new forms of payment and remittance, for removing the friction in Insurance brokerage, dealing with the complexities of reinsurance, in music putting artists in control of payments and royalties, in government for land registry and voting, the disbursement of payments and Identity, capital markets for settlement and reconciliation, in healthcare for medical records and linking to devices, in legal services removing the need for lawyers and and and… See even more info at Nick Ayton.

NickAyton about crypto app tokes : The genuine restaurateur, the foodie owner and talented chef have everything to gain from joining the community to showcase their fine food, their great service and their determination to help change the face of the food industry. Now who doesn’t want to be a food critic, as most of us have an opinion, likes and dislikes? Your dreams have been answered, you now have a platform to get it off your chest. We are seeing a real revolution driven by App Tokens, because they reward changes in behaviour and commitment to encourage doing the right thing. ‘Token buys’ buy App Tokens, ‘Investors’ buy Security Tokens.
