The climb of a technology leader : Nick Ayton… Nick Ayton about the bitcoin generation: The power of sending money to someone without going through a central banking system is profound, a transaction that cannot be tampered with by dark forces. Be under no illusion: Bitcoin has rocked the people in power to their core, and they don’t know what to do next. I have been in technology for over 4 decades and seen mainframes, minicomputers, the PC revolution and the birth of networking (from its packet switching roots) and then the internet. Each had a profound impact on peoples’ behaviors, the nature of their work and productivity and the rules of the bigger game that is being played out. What I have learned is the blockchain technology offers a structural transformation to society both good and bad. Previously, technology has been held back by those that feed the hierarchy of power, making the tech conform rather than unleash its potential. Where core systems were designed around draconian tax, legal and accounting structures have since strangled businesses, becoming a centralized ‘system of record’ that forces all parties to keep their own version of the truth.

The latest company to begin accepting payment in crypto is American dealership Post Oak Motor Cars. The Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Bugatti dealership now accepts Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash from clients. Owned by billionaire Tilman Fertitta, the company offers customers this facility around the world. Astonishingly, some people are even willing to accept cryptocurrency for property, an asset class that has historically considered a good store of wealth and investment. In this particular section, there is big divide between what you can buy with cryptocurrency, from a modest home to an entire tropical island.
NickAyton about crypto app tokes : 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.
