One-on-One: Neil Sweeney on Scaling the Blockchain

Neil Sweeney recently sat down with DMN Editor-in-Chief Kim Davis to discuss how the new Killi app creates an environment for consumers to retain control of their identities, make their valuable data available to brands in a controlled way, and earn money by doing so. Check out the podcast here.

“The privacy genie is out of the bottle, and it’s never going back in,” says Neil Sweeney, founder and CEO of Freckle IoT. The future, according to Sweeney, will see consumer data housed within blockchain, partitioned from brands, and available for sale, resulting in increased privacy and reduced security risks.
