Expert Outlook 2022
Who’s creating decentralised networksThe Systems Sceptic is interested in redistributing power and giving it back to the ordinary citizen, so creating networks where people can carve out their own path is key. Facilitate interest-based communities on alternative platforms to win their hearts.
Why offering different ways to pay can build loyaltyThe Systems Sceptic is rethinking the value of money and how it is made, saved, and spent. They also want their finances to be as flexible as their lives, so offering different ways to pay – whether through different currencies, crypto, bartering, or buy-now-pay-later options – will help build long-term loyalty.
How to build systems resilienceThe Systems Sceptic wants institutions to think and act more in line with their core values. In times of disruption, take the lead by building systems that stand up to scrutiny and give people an alternative that’s stable and proves you care about the long term.
