UTU Technologies

UTU Technologies is a Nairobi-based blockchain startup building a trust infrastructure for the digital economy on the æternity blockchain. UTU’s goal is to re-invent the online services industry by tokenizing the acquisition of users.

The platform establishes a safe space to securely store and govern data access while providing monetary incentives to users for endorsing trusted service providers.
