It’s getting personal – Importance of trust in the digital age

Rachel Botsman has said that “Money is the currency of transaction, trust is the currency of interaction”. Digitalization is a must. How do we ensure that we have rich data available for creation of new digital services and can digital handshake ever create value similar to physical handshake?
