While Jason Hope is constantly looking for opportunities to donate, he is still focused on ways to make the internet better. One area that is a major concern for Jason is the Internet of Things. On his Medium website, Jason expressed that he felt the Cloud is hindering the IoT because how easily assessible it is to the common user and how they are able to clone valuable products and duplicate cheaper less effective versions. However, although security and ease of access is a major concern, Jason Hope feels that one of the biggest hinderences is the IoT lacks the ability to communicate across platforms. As currently constructed, many of the technologies are brand specific, meaning that parts can only be interconnected with other parts from the same brand. Jason feels that this limits the products from maximizing their benefits. Entrepreneur Jason Hope Invests in Research Against Aging
