Data Providers and Producers
The maturity of the data currency will be signalled by personal data bank accounts, that give us the consumer control and traceability. The Locker project is a first step towards this goal, giving users a way to get their data back from disparate sites, but is one of many future models.
Who runs data banks themselves will be another point of control in the struggle for data ownership.
