It has been reported that governments and companies utilize customer and user data for a vast array of purposes and this has placed added emphasis on how data is collected, priced and of course, there are also privacy concerns regarding how personal data is obtained.
However, there are, currently, several blockchain projects focused on organizing data and enabling users to have more control over what data they elect to share, and monetizing some of the profits generated from data collection.
The report said that the project aims to solve the issues of scalability, privacy, and the high operating costs currently limiting the mass adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem.
A cross-chain DeFi integration with @unifiprotocol and a new partnership with the Amazon Web Services network @awscloud triggered a 300% rally in IoTeX $IOTX price. https://t.co/VucderpX4V — Cointelegraph (@Cointelegraph) March 11, 2021
Cointelegraph Markets and TradingView shows that the price of IOTX has rallied 300% since February 1 as the price rose from $0.011 to a new all-time high of $0.0443 on March 10 when its trading volume surged by 130%. A scroll through the IoTeX Twitter feed shows that project members have been hard at work finding projects and communities to integrate with in order to facilitate the expansion of the IoTeX ecosystem.
Likewise, the month of March got off to a hot start for the protocol when the project was listed on the PancakeSwap (CAKE) DeFi protocol. This enabled IOTX trading on the Binance Smart Chain along with the Ethereum (ETH) network, and plans to integrate with Polkadot (DOT) are already underway.

Thus, projects like IoTeX which utilize blockchain technology to securely track, record, and transact data are well-positioned to see further growth and adoption as digitization and the Internet of Things continue to permeate all facets of society.
