Sean Moss-Pultz is recognized as an open-source hardware pioneer, having founded and served as CEO of Openmoko, the world's first open-source phone and precursor to the iPhone and Android smartphones. He is the Co-Founder and CEO of Bitmark, a blockchain startup that aims to bring traditional property rights into the digital age by providing tools that enable anyone to affirm ownership and control digital assets they create and post online.

They've raised $10.3M in funding from investors, including Alibaba and Kevin Lin (Co-Founder of Twitch), and their clients included Pfizer, UC Berkeley, Health2Sync, and KKBOX. One of their products is Autonomy, the world's first and only digital art wallet that allows traders to showcase their NFT collection and view it on any screen, TV, or projector, anywhere.

Property rights were invented for land (real property) and then ideas (intellectual property), but none extend to the digital world. Because of this oversight, millions of us give away what we create online and our personal data for free to entities that profit from it every day, and we don't get a cut because we don't own it. Bitmark intends to change that.

Sean joins me on Tech Talks Daily to discuss defining property in the digital environment and how we can secure personal data in an age when it has become fully commoditized. We also discuss whether the new digital economy will stay or go bust, and Sean shares his thoughts on the current state of the NFT market and the future of NFTs.
