What is the most valuable thing you own?

  • A home?
  • Your phone?

Millennials as a group are either refusing to purchase the first two, while their mobile device is the most important thing in their lives.

Whether it is due to the fact they can’t afford to buy a car or home or because they don’t want to be tied to the commitment of payments both bring, I lean towards the second, it is undeniable that a smartphone has become the central hub of almost every person in the world’s lives. It is the first thing we reach for when we wake, the last thing we touch before we fall asleep and is the gateway to our lives and biggest secrets.

The implications of this increase every day as the volume of data we create skyrockets. What this data is, that everyone knows but few people appreciate, are personal digital assets.

The switch that’s occurred has been subtle but huge.

Prior generations main assets were physical.
The futures will be digital.

The problem?

We Don’t own or control them

The infrastructure to do so does not exist

Each of them owns our personal data, not us.
Each of them leverages our digital assets to profits, not us

Yet each of them exists in isolation

Facebook is worth $275 per user
Google is worth $439 per user

That value is increasing steadily over time

You need a Digital Asset Bank

  1. Let attention economy conglomerates monetize our attention and exploit every opportunity to steal it while lining their own pockets
  2. Use the power we have been afforded to take back control

Do you wish to be the battery that powers the digital economy?

Or do you want to be an individual who benefits financially from your choice to participate while owning and controlling all your digital assets?

How would it work?

  • your bank accounts
  • your email account
  • your social media

It autonomously reclaims ownership of your digital assets.
It takes back control, storing them locally on your device only

You’ll give access to service providers via public key access tokens, on the blockchain but, crucially, have the power to revoke these at any time.

Third parties will never own personal data again

Your energy tariff will match to your bank history, your device will switch you when you’re paying more than you should be, for free, forever

Your health band data, will link to your grocery shopping receipts, match with your age, gender, and health data to make preventative diagnosis

You’ll only pay for car insurance when you drive and you’ll get a discount on your home insurance when you’re home. Major purchases will be tracked through your bank and added automatically to your insurance. Travel insurance will link to the bookings you make with your debit card.

A Digital Asset Bank which lets the world own their virtual identity

This will be the most important product you own within 5 years

Are you going to own your digital assets

Or continue to let $Billion business get richer

I’m looking for you:

data punks, privacy avengers, digital renegades

You want to break free but the infrastructure doesn’t exist

A digital asset bank you own & control is needed

Fascinated by that proposition?
Need to help make it?
Want one?

Reach out — it’s coming
