Cambridge Analytica was also working on a cryptocurrency to enable people to sell their data to advertisers.<br />Due to a series of scandals, Cambridge Analytica and many of its associated companies were closed.

Tasty Data

Company

TastyData seems to have removed their Twitter, LinkedIn, and website around the time the Cambridge Analytica scandal broke. They allowed companies to analyze and monitor social media profiles in real time and then used IBM's personality insights service to build psychological profiles. This service "uses linguistic analysis to extract cognitive and social characteristics from input text such as email, text messages, tweets, forum posts, and more."<br />In addition to their political work, Tasty Data appears to have worked on the prediction of electricity prices in Mexico.
