“…Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at
things in a different way…”

“…The system will always be defended by those countless people who have
enough intellect to defend but not quite enough to innovate…”

“…There is no doubt that creativity is the most important human resource of all. Without creativity, there would be no progress, and we would be forever
repeating the same patterns…”

“…If you wait for opportunities to occur, you will be one of the crowd…”

James Falkener has worked in the insurance claims industry for more than 30 years and is a de Bono certified trainer in lateral thinking. He is an advisor on the Viaz.io core team. Quotes above are attributed to Dr Edward de Bono.

To quote Dr. Edward de Bono, considered to be one of the most influential minds in the world today;

“…An idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea…”

In the ever-growing landscape of possible crypto applications, many of these new businesses are based solely upon an idea that needs financial resources to be developed and tested. Many have failed because they remained as ideas only.

Viaz.io is very different. The idea was germinated several years ago and rather than just remaining an idea, codes were written and tested…

Many folks today believe cryptocurrencies were the brainchild of Satoshi
Nakamoto. This is simply not true. The real architect behind crypto must fall to Dr Edward de Bono, the 2005 Nobel economics nominee, who developed the study and application of ‘lateral thinking’ (his terminology) and who foretold the concept of cryptocurrencies in his controversial paper ‘The IBM Dollar’ https://www.debono.com/the-ibm-dollar back in the early 1990s. The only sticking point to his research for IBM was the fact that technology had not advanced far enough to support his methods at that time. Today, it has.

Based on his research of the day…

The bad news is we have an antiquated, arrogant, and greedy banking monopoly. The good news is that it’s ripe for the picking, and for the first time in human history we have the technology which can facilitate such a bold undertaking.

There is an old adage that by the time you find out, it’s too late. A truer statement was never spoken. Every time you read a headline, you’re reading history.

It is no different when it comes to cryptocurrency. Every one of us involved in the digital asset space is guilty of trying to predict the future. …

I have known Peter/Steve Meronek for many years and am impressed by his business acumen and scrupulous sense of fair play. He also knows how to build a business which has wide appeal. When he told me about Viaz I was impressed by the great application of blockchain technology to a real-world problem. I expressed my disappointment that I was working full-time on my project at Google. Otherwise, I would have jumped at the opportunity to help out. …

When U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted last week that he is no fan of cryptocurrency and warned companies they have to conform to regulations to become a bank, he missed the point that digital money and blockchain have already unleashed the potential for anybody, anywhere to be a bank.

In recent years, the boom in disruptive financial technology has ushered in two major trends that have upended the normal way of banking. First, peer-to-peer funding has opened new frontiers in financing, avoiding the conventional banking industry and supporting anything from mom-and-pop startups to heart surgery operations. Second, blockchain, an emerging…

I call Viaz the sleeping juggernaut because there are days when I spend most of my time getting on and off airplanes. Every time I’m landing, day or night, I always look out of the window of the plane at the cities below me. I see buildings, homes and, sometimes, large ocean-going vessels. I see roads and bridges. When we finally land, I see all the different airline companies’ aircraft lining the runways. But most of all, what I see is debt. Incredible debt. Because all the homes, cars and businesses I see as we land; all of the roads…

One of the main reasons we launched Viaz is to help people who have been shut out by banks receive funding for their homes. We created the first major
decentralized peer-to-peer funding platform on Tezos so that hard-working
families can access financing even if the banking system has turned its back on them. With all the tech and crypto-economics behind Viaz, it is all too easy to forget the very people who will benefit from this first-of-a-kind platform. But they are always on our mind.

Here is the second story in our series showing Viaz’s real-world impact on
families’ lives.
