I get lots of invites to talk, but when one came in from Zug, it went to the top of my agenda. For a crypto geek … Zug is the best place on the planet to present and to listen to ideas. New companies are being fused through the vision of individuals who can see a different world evolving. I believe the world can learn a great deal from Switzerland, and especially from Zug. It is a model of a modern society, and one which wants to lead the world in blockchain. Our future industries will be cyber-physical, and can base themselves anywhere in the world. Their key assets will be the talent that they can attract, and KEEP!

So within the beautiful old streets, a new world is being created, and this one will provide the great change that we have ever faced. For Zug, the city embraces innovation and change, like no other place in the world. Overall they want to attract the smartest crypto people to come and live there, and this will build a modern economy … and one based on intellect, and people coming together to share ideas. It should also be the one that governments enable, and then get out of the way and let new ideas thrive.

As a European citizen, I am happy to work alongside others with shared vision, and create a world which does not see physical borders as thing that stops collaboration and the exchange of knowledge. Well … here is a bit of our vision … why not join us in building a more citizen focused world [video]:

And thank you to the organisers for the invite, and for all their great help. The Toblerone with my name on it was a fun end of my presentation:

Long may individuals come together and share dreams. Oh … and here’s the book I was reading on the flight over:

For me, I am energised, and I am so happy that my beliefs in creating a new world are shared with others.
