Monday December 3rd, 2018 by Silvan Jongerius

Since the introduction of the GDPR we have dealt with many aspects of the regulation.

Monday October 22nd, 2018 by Jesse Van Mouwerik

There are many reasons why people are excited about the possibilities of blockchain technology—from decentralized networks to the removal of middlemen—but the most popular reason is the appeal of privacy.
