A way to get paid for your personal data
Expample-look-datacoin.jpg

All around the world the information about you is being stored. From Google and Facebook servers all the way to hard drives spinning in the name of Tinder. This information is valuable to these companies because they sell it. The information you create is only lucrative to these companies and not for you. I disagree.

The idea, although very technical, is simple: Datacoin monitors your every digital action and turns it into pieces of personalised data. These pieces I call datacoins, a different kind of cryptocoin. Every coin allows to harbour up to 1mb of data, meaning every megabyte you collect about yourself is a mined datacoin. Sell it or keep it - it's up to you.

CONTRIBUTE

Feel free to contribute to Beyond Social.

 

There are four ways to contribute:

Create a new article. Beyond Social is written and edited by its community. Contribute to this online publishing platform with an article (text, photo-essay, video, audio and so on) about your project, theory, event or initiative in the field of Social Art & Design.
Edit this page, or any of the other ones. If there is any missing information or spelling mistakes in this article, please don't hesitate to change it. Other complementing work, such as including media files (images/video's/audio) is also very much appreciated.
Talk with the contributers and others by taking part in one of the discussions on the TALK-page of an article. These pages are the semi-hidden backside of articles, hence ideal for discussions about an article without changing the initial text.
PROPOSE a new editorial. Beyond Social invites guest editor(s) to emphasize a certain issue, topic or theme. Guest editors write an editorial, invite others to create articles by an open call and/or add existing articles.
