“Throughout my career, I have been at the forefront of several mega trends that have transformed industries by utilizing state-of-art technology and innovative business models.  I firmly believe that paying the consumer for their data insights, as well as utilizing blockchain technology, will transform the big data industry,” stated Gil Amelio, Chairman of 5BARz International.  

“Now that we have reached the inflection point of commercialization of our network extender and have designed the next generation in big data solutions utilizing our 5BARz ‘ROVR’ router, we are ready to start the next phase of deployment.  Furthermore, we intend to dramatically increase our communication with our shareholders going forward in 2019 and beyond, as we actively move out of stealth development,” stated Daniel Bland, CEO of 5BARz International.
