Why Join Pillar?
Join us in building a decentralised future that gives people control over their personal data. It starts with an intuitive cryptocurrency wallet and will evolve to become a personal data locker and assistant for your digital life.

Examples include a digital crypto exchange, an ICO investment platform, and an e-commerce platform. Additionally we are building an SDK. We want to empower developers and entrepreneurs to launch decentralised apps that put the user in control of their personal data.
