Nick Ayton is currently writing a book entitled “Blockchain Design and Implementation Strategies” due to be published in 2017. Nick has published a range of White Papers and articles and is London’s correspondent for CoinTelegraph. Some of his articles include: Myths about Blockchain, 50 Shades of Blockchain, Ignoring Blockchain is Corporate Suicide, Blockchain Returns Trust, Blockchain will Change Asset Management as we know it. White Papers include Global Custody Asset Management, Insurance Claims and Marine Insurance on the Blockchain.

His most recent project 21 million , will launch an ICO 12th June 2017. 21 million aims to make a crypto-funded blockchain indy tv series about the Bitcoin Revolution, an asset backed Token and a new Media and Film Production business on Ethereum.

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.
