Direct and secure messaging, files, streaming for human or machine The wraps are off, and today we are proud to announce (drum rolls…) dataRide! The name dataRide derives from two words: data and rideshare. When connectivity is shared and incentivized, data flows better. Much better. What is dataRide? dataRide is a decentralized PaaS (Platform as […]
