Why Investors Should Pay Attention to SelfKey Futurists often say that it is very hard to predict what the future looks like, because brand new problems pop up that no one would have been able to conceive of decades before. For example, you have something like cell phone addiction or the unique neck problems that result from using your cellphone too often. These are occasionally referred to as “first world problems”, but they are problems that need a solution. One other problem we couldn’t have seen coming a decade ago would be the growing issue with data sovereignty and how our personal data is stored. Recent hacks of companies and news stories about how our data is used against us should serve as a warning sign that we need to be much more careful with how we handle this. The first thing to realize is that there is no company we can trust to just hold our privacy data and not do anything with it. If Facebook is given our phone numbers, they are going to do something with it. This has created the need for a decentralized solution that doesn’t even allow the organization holding the data to monitor it.
