Most individuals while signing up with online platforms such as Facebook, Google, Linkedin and the likes finds it very difficult to give out their real personal data because they believe that their personal data could be stolen by hackers and used for criminal activities which is not far from the truth. The blockchain technology is one technology that could help in securing your personal data if integrated into the personal data market place and OPIRIA PDATA platform is designed to make this a reality.
THE DANGER OF INPUTING YOUR PERSONAL DATA IN AN UNSECURE PLATFORM
Personal data is seen as the New oil of the 21st century, it is worth about 250 billion USD every year and this is bound to increase in the nearest future because of how valuable it is for most companies. In case you are ignorant of this fact, I will like to bring it to your notice that this important commodity that belongs to you has been constantly stolen from you by big companies like Facebook and sold for big money.
You will agree with me that most of these platforms that house our personal data are not secure and transparent. Today, people’s Facebook accounts are been hacked and their personal data used for fraudulent activities. Even Google accounts are not save either, I have heard stories where hackers sent virus to their victim’s email address and in the process personal data are lost. A lot of unsuspected individuals have been duped of by these hackers using other people’s personal data. The worst part of this is that the owners of these online platforms are not interested in securing the personal data of their users rather they are interested in making money from their data.
A commodity as important as personal data should be highly because its theft could lead to the arrest and jailing of the owner of the data if such data is used for criminal activities. OPIRIA PDATA platform is designed to give your platform the high security required using the blockchain technology.
OPIRIA PDATA ROLE IN ELIMINATING THIS CHALLENGE
While the major aim of OPIRIA is to help you monetize your personal data and be in control of what happens to your personal data, it is also designed to help you protect your personal data from entering the wrong hand.
OPIRIA platform will develop applications for our smart phones and internet browsers which will help to track our data such as our purchase history, browser history, our likes and dislikes and other information which we have in one way or the other entered online. These applications will help to stream back the found data back to the OPIRIA market place. On the OPIRIA marketplace, companies who are interested in your data will have to send you data request, requesting to buy your data directly from you and not from the big guns like Facebook and Google who has being making a fortune from your personal data; this means that you are now fully in control of your data. When you accept to sell your data to them, you will be paid with the PDATA token.
To ensure that your data I protected, OPIRIA strictly follows the Global Data Protection Regulations guidelines (GDPR). This means that your personal data will never leave the hand of the consumer in an unencrypted format and only the consumer holds the key to decrypt it. The consumer reserves the right to know who holds the personal data per time and for what purpose and the trading of your personal data will be fully transparent and can be traced on the blockchain. With this I can say that OPIRIA platform is a safe place to trade your personal data.
The ICO is presently ongoing and I will advise you to consider being a part of this great project. I will also suggest you to visit the essential links below to get more information about the project.
