Jolocom is a Berlin-based social startup founded in 2014. The mission of our company is that anyone can control their data. With our app we help people to control information through their own digital identity, regardless of where it is stored. People can secure their data, yet share it directly between peers in mightily flexible ways without going through any intermediary.
Information is shared peer-to-peer using links and clever access-right-management. Be it files, chat messages, sensor data or any other kind of data – it is managed and shared schema-less, decentralized and disrupting the dependencies on data silos. We call this… Linking outside the box.
In order to achieve this, we are using technologies like blockchain and social linked data.
We wish to contribute to PCC mainly in the following ways:
- Software Development: Many platform coops struggle to build their tech platform. You can start as easy as with one-click your first coop simply by simply by creating a new decentralized node with the Jolocom app. No need to build an app or setup a platform, you just create it with one simple click. If you want to know more please reach out to us and apply for access to our private-beta.
- Governance: Decentralized technologies and platforms offer a wide range of opportunities, however to knit our values into what we create is a process and this somehow needs to be orchestrated in transparent and diverse ways. We believe that we need more than just tech.
