About the DataHour:

Blockchain is a data structure used to create a public or private distributed digital transaction ledger which, instead of resting with a single provider, is shared among a distributed network of computers. It helps in bringing advantages of Immutability, Transparency, Privacy, Security, Interoperability, Censorship, and Traceability.

All the Information we store and use online is Data and Personal data is the information belonging to an Individual person which can be used to identify him uniquely.

We live in a world run by data and these personal data are so important that we live, own, and work in the digital world with this data for example we are identified digitally using this information for financial work like credit cards and this information is easily accessible by many which can be used to act as a fraudulent person. This shows how building blocks of the internet identity and data are fragmented and it is time we do something to give back control of ownership.
