Confidential Computing Will Revolutionize the IoT
IoTeX Co-founder @Raullen explains how new privacy technology like IoTeX will unleash innovative win-win business models for corporations, governments, and consumers.
No Safety Nets in the Real World
Unlike the virtual world, the real world has no safety nets. As we install billions of new IoT devices like cameras + digital assistants into our homes, hackers have their targets set on the rich/sensitive data of our smart homes — how can we stay protected?
Did you know … 1 Million Devices = ~500 Billion Unique Connections?
With a wave of “Powered by IoTeX” devices coming soon, powerful network effects will unleash new possibilities for IoTeX.
IoTeX is featured in @CoinDesk’s new article on privacy!
“At the heart of the problem is data ownership. Decentralization offers a way for individual people and entities to own their data.” — @Raullen
Big Tech Is Acquiring Access to Your Health & Home
With virtual assistants like Alexa & Siri and smart devices like Nest & Ring in our homes, Big Tech is now watching and listening to us 24/7. IoTeX’s mission to build a private IoT is more important than ever — we must take back our privacy!
