Nick Ayton and the rise of a technology thought leader… Nick Ayton and 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.

The App Token delivers with its close ally – the decentralised ledger – a real secret sauce that unlocks not only an industry but delivers something really special that cuts through and exposes what is wrong in this world, starting with the things we use and consume. Too often Blockchain design suits the owners, where they try to convince you they are not recreating a centralisation or skewing consensus that benefits a closed audience.
NickAyton about crypto app tokes : But a slow visible Kodak-like decline won’t happen this time. Before long one of the thousands of people and organizations working on redefining and reinvent your market will do it, and then it is more likely your entire industry will be washed away, taking you with it… The lack of understanding in the board room can create a falsehood that there is safety in numbers, that scale and market share delivers some form of protection; that IT outsourcing or digital transformation will deliver marginal improvements in performance, simply put is no more than putting lipstick on the pig. These projects deliver lots of activity that can convince management everything is OK, while others are envisioning new ways of delivering 10x the Customer Experience through new value at less than 50% of the cost. A new generation of entrepreneurs is working hard to use Blockchain to destroy your shareholder value, completely.
