Data protection by closely analyzing the signal and the HUH Token

Social media emphasizes that we must take care of our data, but when entering any website with a newsletter, you need to put your email address, especially

It is standard practice when signing up to any social media site or newsletter to provide your name, email address and mobile number. It’s something we don’t think twice about, after all, how could an email address be turned into a weapon?

Facebook, now Meta, has grown from a college student project to an $86 billion corporate giant due to our own willingness to put personal information online for the purposes of “social networks”, whatever that means.

It made sharing social data like our birthday, hobbies, and relationship status look like fun, where we were able to assert our own sense of self-importance. Going online seemed alarmingly risk-free until the past decade, when Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica Data Scandal highlighted how companies were using this information to fuel political campaigns, most notably the 2016 US presidential election.

The scandal is held to be partly responsible for Donald Trump’s presidential victory, as well as Brexit.

Ultimately, the scandal helped us realize the power of data at scale. The more that is known about our habits and preferences, the more we can be manipulated into acting in the interests of a select few. After this discovery, encrypted messaging apps like Telegram and Signal increased in popularity.

WhatsApp is trying to slow down the platform’s migration rate through advertising that emphasizes the encrypted nature of messages. Likewise, following the traction, Signal recently ventured into the cryptosphere by integrating MobileCoin so users can send and receive”privacy-focused payments”, whose ease they compare to texting.

Social media mining is a highly controversial but legal practice which means that through processes such as cooking profiling, our data is transmitted to third parties who bombard us with advertising based on what we have analyzed or researched.

They are essential to increasing corporate profits and mean that we are liable to buy things we don’t need. Also, cookies erode our personal choice, websites tend to deny access to them unless we agree with their cookies. So, the solution for social media to become decentralized?

After the successful launch of the HUH Token in December, leading to a 6000% price jump and being added to the UniSwap and SushiSwap platforms, utimeme aims to create a decentralized metaverse in which we earn from the data we generate. The idea is somewhat reminiscent of Brittany Kaiser’s #OwnYourData campaign, which called for greater data transparency.

According to the White Paper, HUH is working to launch MetHUH, a two-tier platform for content production and consumption. utimeme is planning to incorporate sentiment analysis that rewards sentiment tokens that can be traded for HUH tokens.

While little is currently known about what to expect from MetHUH, there are rumors that hundreds of influencers will start promoting HUH on January 19th. This move is expected to cause thousands of people to join HUH in anticipation of its next social platform.

Society is already undergoing a transition from CeFi to DeFi. As we benefit from crypto, which grants us more autonomy and control over our finances, it wouldn’t be surprising if social media took the next leap to DeFi.
