The blockchain database that gives consumers the power to decide who gets to use their data

There is no shortage of books and articles lamenting and deploring the market power of the FAANGs and their unremunerated and potentially sinister use of personal data. 

But engineers can do more to solve this problem than any verbalizer ever will, and the launch by Revolution Populi of a decentralized blockchain database with user controls whose stated ambition is to “return digital sovereignty back to the people” gives consumers a choice of whether to own, control and use their data in the marketplace or to trade it for “free” services. Future of Finance Co-founder Dominic Hobson spoke to Revolution Populi CEO Rob Rosenthal about giving consumers the choice, what they will choose and how digital entrepreneurs can create the apps to change the balance of power in data ownership and control.
