produce in real-time as digital assets and enjoy added value based on a ‘Decentralized Identifiers, Kaiser has emphasized that “data ownership is a necessary human right” and has stated that, “We
should be free to decide how we use our own data and be paid justly for the value it generates,”
through the #OwnYourData campaign.
DATA, co-founded by Kaiser, is also a non-profit lobbying company to protect individuals’ rights to
control their digital assets, including personal data. DATA was formed with the obligation to work
closely with the government to enact laws focusing on distributed ledger technologies, such as

Kaiser has starred in the Netflix Original documentary, ‘The Great Hack’ and has been opening up
about CA’s corrupted usage of Facebook data privacy in the Trump campaign. Given this, the
blockchain and cryptocurrency industries call Kaiser the ‘star in the age of surveillance capitalism.’
As digital surveillance technology and the data economy amalgamate, human behavior goes
beyond ‘predictions’ and is regulated by giant platforms, according to a recent publication by
Professor Shoshana Zuboff.
