In August 2017, the government of Antigua and Barbuda appointed him a Special Economic Envoy with responsibility for advising on economic cooperation and commerce between Antigua and Barbuda and other sovereign states where blockchain technology is being utilized.

Ayre, who not only holds Antiguan citizenship but is also a major local employer, takes his diplomatic role seriously, and is a strong proponent of new technology’s capacity to assist developing economies in playing a greater role in international commerce. In particular, Ayre supports the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) public blockchain because its massive on-chain scaling can handle high volumes of micro-transactions with low transaction fees.
