With the launch of PhunCoin, the company aims to empower customers by enabling them to take control of and be fairly compensated for their data.

The CEO of Phunware, Alan S. Knitowski, said, “We launched PhunCoin to usher in a new era of transparency and accountability that enables consumers to determine not only what data they share and who they share it with, but also what that data is worth.” (See Phunware stock chart on TipRanks)
