Nick Ayton or the climb of a technology leader… An internationally reputable tech 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: I witnessed my dad commute for 35 years every day, missing out on so much, and as a child, I only saw him only on the weekends. The labor force has changed and big companies don’t know how to deal with it, attract and retain talent because, for this generation, working for a large company represents the ‘treadmill’ that you get on, that burdens you with financial obligations, that never stops until you retire and then die. Then we have Generation Z, they have few social skills, can’t look you in the eye and many have ‘digital dementure’ which will have a profound impact on the workforce. It is all changing before our very eyes. Technology liberates the information making everything accessible, something some states don’t like (China, North Korea) as governments that concentrate power more than the western economies (who do allow allegedly free markets to work and for some to make money) and ‘extraction economy’ preferring to keep the people dumb and in the dark as they rely on “ignorance to be strengthened” and for government, this means they embed it.
Nick Ayton has worked more than 40 years in tech fields, improving businesses and implementing the newest 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. Nick Ayton is a thought leader and a global expert in blockchain. A prolific man, Nick Ayton is not only a Blockchain Architect, Ethereum Believer and ICO Advisor, but also a filmmaker, who is creating a new film project project, that is revolutionising the way films are produced and financed. Besides aiming to design Blockchain propositions in film and entertainment, he is also interested in renewable energy, sharing economy, trading, insurance, capital markets.
There are 10,000 Use Cases, most of the big banks who recognised the opportunity and threat, most governments about assessing and working on projects ready to deploy land registry and voting; central banks contemplating a new cryptocurrency as an Altcoin or ColoredCoin recognising Bitcoin’s simplicity and the rush to use it as a Safe Haven currency. There are upwards of 20m Bitcoin Users today, when it hits 100m users as PayPal did, Blockchain maturity is complete, its future certain. But then this is merely Act One, Version 1 of Blockchain. I would argue that Blockchain is the start of new commerce that will enable it to scale like never before. This is because the underlying technology offers a new starting point, a new set of rules and attributes with which to build new operating models, automate interactions and business logic, remove the layers of inefficiencies of an old WorldWideWeb that can no longer support an AI, Robo and Machine to Machine future. I can hear the corporate techies say Nick you are wrong, nothing really changes, because deep down they know and don’t like change and think they can still improve today’s organizations and markets.

“Nick has a way of getting through to audiences by scaring them a little, then making them laugh. A thought leader and futurist I very much enjoy listening to him” We support Family Offices, Investors and Funds to understand the underlying technology and supporting technology stack. Nick Ayton has published several White Papers discussing how Blockchain will disrupt Global Custody, Asset Management, Legal Services, Accounting & Audit, Banking and several other sectors. His book – how to design and implement Blockchain Operating Models will be available in the second half of 2017.
NickAyton on crypto app tokes : A luxury car dealership in Japan now accepts Bitcoin as a payment method through renowned cryptocurrency exchange BitFlyer. According to the company, customers can easily pay for their next prospective vehicle in a matter of minutes — which certainly beats conventional means of buying vehicles, like obtaining finance through a bank. While a Lamborghini may be the goal, people have been able to purchase a wide variety of vehicles, from affordable hatchbacks to luxury sports cars, with cryptocurrency for some time now. While this dealership is driving forward a new payment model, it’s not the first time people have been able to buy cars with crypto. In December last year, a Manchester car owner listed a gold-colored Rolls Royce on Autotrader, which could only be purchased with Bitcoin. BlockShow Asia 2017 also provided the stage for BitCar to promote their platform, which allows people to buy and sell exotic cars like Lambos using cryptocurrency.
