Youssof Altoukhi On Ted Talk

At last month’s TED talk in Bedford, Youssof Altoukhi raised very pertinent questions about why 18 is the age of legal contract for businesses when teenage entrepreneurs are equally capable of coming up with extraordinary and innovative ideas. He spoke at length about matters that concern young entrepreneurs and how they could overcome those challenges.

 He cited several examples and also raised some vital questions about the necessity of inculcating entrepreneurial spirit in young minds. Youssof Altoukhi questioned the conventional educational system where students are taught from books throughout their academic lives. 

From kindergarten all the way to university they don’t teach you any finance. I’m talking about things like tax, mortgages, tax deductibility which many people suffer from today,” Youssof Altoukhi exclaimed. 

Youssof Altoukhi also highlighted some of the common problems that every young entrepreneur faces just because they are under–18. He wanted this age-old convention to change. The internet has changed the dynamics of business and commerce. As more and more young entrepreneurs are coming forward to sell their products or services, buyers also need to change their mindset. They should also start buying from young entrepreneurs to help them thrive. 

Similarly, Youssof Altoukhi also explained that he’s not doing all these businesses for financial gains, yet in truth entrepreneurship has been his childhood passion. He always wanted to do something new and innovative instead of watching TV shows or playing games. 

Youssof Altoukhi also stated how the internet can now act as a bridge between teenage entrepreneurs and their target audience. This is the only generation when youngsters get direct access to these powerful tools to help them succeed in business. However, young people below the age of 18 are barred from participating in company matters as its legal shareholder. It is the equivalent to stopping a whole generation from accomplishing their dreams. 

Youssof Altoukhi then stated how cryptocurrency is the only space where teenagers are able to accomplish their goals. 

“Cryptocurrency is so new that regulation by government entities hasn’t even touched it yet. You see, because of this anyone who has the knowledge can create one. It doesn’t discriminate between age, gender or any other factors you can think of,” Youssof said.

However, Youssof Altoukhi also cautioned why cryptocurrency management requires a complete overhaul in order to make it more democratic and transparent while mentioning how he is creating a cryptocurrency to solve the lack of democracy in cryptocurrency.”
