The rise of a blockchain thought leader : Nick Ayton… Nick Ayton on the bitcoin generation: Nobody wants a centralized surveillance-based society that is watching your every move, telling you what to wear, how to behave and having control over you. Society is a construct. Play by rules and you will be looked after is a lie! An illusion set by the capitalist few that benefit from keeping the people off balance.

But it gets better. You have to take part in the community, and peer reviews using machine learning that select from the community, which ensure fair play and the integrity of the ecosystem is maintained.

Nick Ayton on crypto app tokes : 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.
