Hi! Do you know that besides money is still very much appreciated? Information, namely personal data. In this review, I'll talk about the Datum platform.
Large corporations like Facebook, Twitter, Google, VK, Skype, Pinterest, Yahoo, LinkedIn and many others make a huge amount of money selling our personal data. Under various pretexts, they collect almost all possible information, from our home addresses, email addresses and phone numbers, to our location, pulse, eye color and so on. Some firms even sell our DNA to pharmaceutical companies.
That's about how much they make off your personal data.
Not only do companies make money selling our personal data, but also in the darknet for accounts with information about us, hackers earn a lot of money. You just think, they even hack into UBER accounts, Booking.com, Expedia and Airbnb, on the sale of which in the amount earn about $ 45.53!
With the darknet, everything is clear, there are selling stolen accounts for further fraud. For example, if the account Airbnb remained tied credit card, the fraudster can create an ad that he will pay, so the money from the hacked account will go to him.
What about the “legal” sale of personal data by large companies? Here, almost everything comes down to selling us something. The data is used to determine our interests, preferences and needs to make a portrait of the buyer (buyer person), set up targeted advertising and sell us another spinner.
By the way, write in the comments how much you bought unnecessary stuff or what you had the most senseless purchase.
"We buy things we don't need, money we don't have to impress people we don't like."— Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club).
And in 2016, the concept of the Datum project appears, which offers people to earn on their personal data by selling them to other companies. From October to November 2017 was held ICO Datum in which the project has collected $7.5 million I learned about the project during the bounty of the campaign, and with Dec use beta version of the Datum.
What is Datum
Datum is a decentralized platform on which you leave your personal data in a secure form, which can be sold to other companies, for which you will earn DAT tokens. This way you will know exactly what data was sold and for which company.
For the safety of information, you can not worry, because all the data is loaded into the blockchain and stored in the NOSQL database, which was developed specifically for this project.
Datum is currently in beta testing, however, according to the project roadmap, a full launch will take place in June 2018. At the moment, you can use the Android application and the web version of Datum, later make an application for iOS.
In the beta version, you can share the following data:
Email address-pay up to 100 DAT for one email, no spam, mostly I received information about upcoming ICO
Geolocation-pay monthly 1 DAT (available only on smartphones)
These data sources will be added later:
Facebook-information about your likes and interesting pages
Twitter - your tweets and likes
Healthkit-information about your health
Nest Termostat-information from the temperature sensor
In the future, you can connect anything at all, because IoT (Internet of things) is developing every day.
At the moment, Datum users are not so much, only 9328, but I think that after the official release the audience will start to grow dramatically.
When your data is sold on the Datum platform, a certain amount of DAT cryptocurrency is paid to you. Then you can withdraw the earned DAT to your Ethereum wallet or directly to the exchange to sell. Since the appearance of the project, the maximum price of DAT was$ 0.13 at the beginning of January 2018, now the cryptocurrency costs about$0.03.
If the Datum can do everything they have planned, it is possible that this platform will become quite popular, and the token is likely to add to the price. Since now the price is low enough, you can try to take a coin for a long term.
Now you can buy DAT on the following exchanges:
