Essentia (using the token ticker ESS) is the project created to give the users a way to take their data back into their own hands. Using the hybrid of the currently mainstream centralized protocols along with a slew of protocols that are based on the blockchain technology, Essentia is aiming to form totally new experiences and interactions between the blockchain interface and their clientele by employing the most up to date solutions in the financial tech industry and beyond. The team stated their goal to create the framework for interactions and interoperations for what they termed the “New Internet”. Creating a bridge between the decentralized and the multi-chain platforms currently in operation, the Essentia project is attracting the largest possible userbase while sacrificing none of its integrity nor its ability to attract and distribute capital. Using the blockchain, Essentia is creating a space where all the personal information is getting stored on the blocks, which cannot be hacked nor edited by any party, including the platform itself.
