If someone had to put a price tag on one's personal data, what would that price tag be? Datacoup is here to figure that out as it is now giving customers the incentive to hand over their personal data, such as social media account information and debit purchases for monetary gain.

This sounds like one of the scariest things that a company can do on the Internet as privacy is a big thing in today's world. However, given the fact that companies data mine our information for free nowadays, the least we could do is know who's doing it and getting paid for it.

Datacoup gives control to the user, who chooses what data to sell and who the data goes to. After the data is sold, they receive a monthly payment depending on how much personal data was sold.
