Do you know how much your data is worth?
Based on all of the hubbub about data security and a general awareness that brands want to get their hands on your browsing history, you know it’s worth something. But can you put a dollar figure to it?
Rob Viglione and his partners at Horizen want to bring users more information about the value of their data. Actually, they want to go a step further, allowing users to make money from their own data.
But in order to do this, Viglione understands that the platform has to be compelling. Users require a convenient, sexy platform in order to get excited in 2019. Viglione and his team are building decentralized products and apps on the Horizen blockchain that users will be excited to use.
Their decentralized virtual private network (VPN) offers a glimpse into the sort of game-changing ventures Horizen is setting its sights on, with the ultimate goal of changing the way the average person thinks about and leverages their information.
About Rob Viglione: Rob is the co-founder of Horizen (formerly ZenCash), a privacy-oriented blockchain platform hyper-focused on usability. He is also President of the Zen Blockchain Foundation, where he’s helping “Uberize” finance by creating a freer, fairer, and nicer world by bringing fintech to the disenfranchised.
