564: Crypto Interview: Why Streamr Aims To Be The eBay of Data Streams
Henri Pihkala is the CEO and Co-founder of Streamr, the online marketplace for decentralized, real-time data. Having recently partnered with both Nokia and Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Streamr is essentially creating the app store for data streams that categorizes and showcases publicly available data streams on the Streamr Network. The blockchain startup is empowering consumers to take on the multi-billion dollar personal data market, take back data ownership, and profit from assets that are rightfully theirs.
Whether you’re an individual or a large enterprise, you will be able to sell your information on your own terms without anyone taking a cut. If you are a company or a developer looking to buy data to increase the performance and efficiency of your operations, boost knowledge of your customer base, or create unstoppable apps, Streamr will also work in your favor.
Essentially, the tech startup is striving to put the ownership of data back in the hands of the individual. The main office for the company is located in Zug, Switzerland and a satellite office in Helsinki, Finland that is home to Streamr Labs, who help their partners integrate with the products they produce.
Prior to Streamr, Henri Pihkala was an ex-algorithmic trader and serial entrepreneur. These experiences led to the development of two high-frequency algorithmic trading platforms. I invited Henri onto today’s tech podcast to talk about this poject, crypto, blockchain and the future of the data economy and the role Streamr will play.
