Instar recently announced on Twitter that they just passed 275 thousand verified $INSTAR wallets. The network encourages more people to keep the momentum going by buying $INSTAR tokens and using the app.
Instar launched in 2021, as a product of Insight network. The idea was to create a crypto network focused on data solutions to ensure that data owners (providers) benefit from their data. Using Instar, Data owners can consent to sell their data and receive money for it.
Today, large organizations take part in stealing people’s data and selling it. Those networks(data brokers) gain access to people’s data without any consent. Social and e-commerce networks face critics for engaging in data malpractices.
Instar network’s goal was always to return the power of data to their owners. As such, with time, the large brokers will lose their control over user data. Instead, individual data owners can choose to sell personal data for tokens like $Instar, Dai, and EOS.
Using Instar, providers sell their information to sanctioned parties(requester). Requesters are large institutions that use the data for research and marketing. To provide data solutions, Instar introduced a wallet and app which has been gaining fast adoption recently.
