Wibson Update 03.20.2019

Telefonica Notary Update

As announced recently, Wibson has partnered with Telefónica, one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world, to trial a data verification capability that validates the authenticity of consumer data in the Wibson system. In a trial that is initially covering Movistar users in Uruguay, Telefónica will serve as a notary, helping to verify Movistar subscriber status for consumers selling data through the Wibson marketplace. The full official announcement is here.

The validation process creates a new user experience flow in the Wibson mobile app. For those outside of Uruguay, here are some screenshots.

Asia Tour

It was Asia Crypto Week and Wibson had a strong presence at the premier crypto event, Token 2049, in Hong Kong. Our founder and CEO Mat Travizano spoke about Wibson and our Own Your Data mission to the attendees at Thursday mornings’ session. You can view Mat’s conference presentation on the future of personal data at the Wibson website. The team also connected with the broader crypto community at the Wibson event booth on the conference floor. Now it’s on to Seoul and Tokyo for Wibson partner meet-up events on March 19 and 21 respectively. View event details here to attend.

Argentina Events

During the last month the Wibson Team has been very active in Argentina, putting on three different events as part of Summer Mondays at WeWork. Occurring in three WeWork towers in the city of Buenos Aires, Rodrigo Irarrazaval, Wibson’s Marketing Manager, talked about the growth of blockchain and data privacy issues while presenting Wibson’s data marketplace solution. It was a great opportunity to gather with our engaged Argentinian community and discuss the future of personal data.
