Permission.io Has Quietly Raised $50M to Make Advertising Personal and Data Private

Permission.io is a platform that pays users in ASK tokens for engaging with, or even looking at, ads. Built on a fork of the Ethereum blockchain, the Permission platform incentivizes users to grant advertisers and other merchant participants access to their time and data in a peer-to-peer way. 

Over the past 12 months, the startup has raised $5 million through a token pre-sale, and recently closed another round of funding that put the company at $47 million raised through equity financing. And since the platform came out of beta a few weeks ago, it has over 450,000 users, according to the company.

The user is now being compensated for what typically, today, companies like Google and

EU commission accused of ‘cheating’ on net-zero emissions accounting | Greenhouse gas emissions

The EU executive has been accused of “cheating” on its 2030 climate plans by proposing to include carbon sinks provided by trees and soils in its emissions reduction goal.

The European commission will this week call for an EU emissions reduction target of “at least 55%” by 2030 compared to 1990 levels, according to a leaked draft seen by the Guardian. The proposal sets the stage for an intense political battle over the autumn to agree the target, intended to set the EU on track to meet a landmark pledge of net-zero emissions by the middle of the century.

But critics say Brussels is guilty of an “accounting trick” that makes the proposed 2030 target look higher than it really is. The row turns on the concept of “removals”, a reference to sinks that absorb more carbon than they emit, such as forests and soils.

2021 Is Shaping Up to Be a Huge Year for Brookfield Infrastructure

This year hasn’t turned out to be as good as many companies initially expected. That’s certainly the case for Brookfield Infrastructure (NYSE:BIP)(NYSE:BIPC), which experienced a trio of headwinds that will hold back its results this year.

However, it anticipates that those headwinds will fade next year. On top of that, the company expects to benefit from its growth-related investments. Add up those two tailwinds, and Brookfield believes next year will be a huge one for the company, which should continue well beyond next year.
