What is Ocean Protocol?

Ocean Protocol is a decentralized data exchange protocol that lets people share and monetize data while guaranteeing control, auditability, transparency and compliance to all actors involved.

Data Providers and Custodians need to feel safe before they will comfortably share data and Ocean Protocol is the solution.

How Ocean Protocol Works

Ocean Protocol provides the underlying technical foundation that data marketplaces need to connect data providers with data consumers in a trusted environment. It nurtures a data ecosystem and community.

Ocean Protocol also enables developers to create new and innovative services for leveraging data.

Learn how Ocean Protocol works

Technical Primer

This technical primer presents a short introduction to Ocean Protocol.
Ocean is a protocol and network that incentivizes to provide a vast supply of high-quality data, for use in training artificial intelligence (AI) models. Ocean incentivizes not only high-quality priced data but also high-quality public or commons data. In turn, this helps to power data marketplaces.

Mission Statement

Society is becoming increasingly reliant on data, especially with the advent of AI. However, a small handful of organizations with both massive data assets and AI capabilities have become powerful with control that is a danger to a free and open society.

Ocean Protocol aims to unlock data, for more equitable outcomes for users of data, using a thoughtful application of both technology and governance.

In 2016, the world produced 16 ZB of data, but only 1% was analyzed — this needs to change.

data locked

A lack of trust prevents data sharing

Centralized data exchanges fail because they lack fair and flexible pricing mechanisms, data providers lose control over their assets, and there is a lack of transparency in how the data is used. So data remains locked up due to a lack of trust.

AI advances six times faster, when data is available

AI models have limited accuracy and usability without appropriate data. Ocean Protocol will unlock more data for AI. This should lead to more breakthroughs to help society. Ocean Protocol gives the tools to unlock the remaining 99% of untapped data.

Only a handful of companies today have both Data and AI

AI start-ups and researchers are drowning in algorithms, but lack data. The opposite is true for many large corporations. Ocean Protocol is the bridge between these two sides. By bringing together data and AI, Ocean Protocol will unlock a trillion-dollar market for data sharing.
