Nick Ayton or the rise of a blockchain thought leader… An internationally reputable technology thought leader, Nick works with CEOs 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.
Nick Ayton about the bitcoin generation: There was an uprising similar to Bitcoin the 1960’s in London (a movement) where the average working man on the street, the young and disintermediated, pushed back. They spoke out as individuals and no longer wanted to conform or be suppressed as part of an obedient crowd. This was a break-out because the UK was stuck in a post-war grey period, a dull society where the powerful liked it that way and social norms encouraged conformist behavior as sheep. This young generation spawned the Beatles, The Who, David Bailey, Twiggy, Vidal Sassoon and Mary Quant – the mother of the mini-skirt suddenly developed a voice. They were part of a liberating movement, an emerging culture that encouraged people to express themselves and they did, and there was nothing the establishment could do about it.
Nick Ayton has spent more than 4 decades in tech fields, improving 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. With 21 million, Nick is experimenting with a new film finance model, using cryptocurrencies, where all staff are treated the same regardless of gender, creed, and beliefs. Everyone who joins the team will earn more than on any other comparable production because they will be paid not only a fair daily rate, but bonus 21 Million coins too. This approach also means that the crew is guaranteed to receive the same crypto value independently of where they live. Also, all 21M Coin holders receive royalties from income at exactly the same time. There will be no such thing as “first position”. 21M Coin represents a contractual right to receive a royalty derived from the sale of 21Million content – the TV series. Early investors buying 21MCoin during the ICO will be entitled to receive royalties in perpetuity for Season 1 and follow on seasons.
What is new is that Blockchain is a structural shift in commerce and how it lets you design and organise the trading and exchange of value between two or more parties. And why 3000 of the world’s smartest people are working on customer and market propositions that are going to destroy your business, your career, and take you with it… The biggest tech companies – IBM, Microsoft, Cisco, Intel, Amazon – are betting the shop on Blockchain and completely re-engineering their business around both the technology and the Internet of Things, that uses Blockchain and Robotics that work so well together. In a sense they are of course right, but they are also very wrong. What Satoshi Nakamoto started in 2008 was a movement, more than a simple electronic peer 2 peer payment system. It was the beginning of something entirely new, a technology that when translated into business delivers an entirely different outcome for customers. The current systems based on Fractional Reserve Banking, a System of Record supporting Standard Cost and Value Based Accounting is and has always been structurally flawed. But this was all that there was at the time. It is today’s commerce that everyone accepts, endures, and struggles with because until now there was no replacement that worked better – until the Blockchain. Find more details on Nick Ayton.
