- New Data NFTs and datatokens
On-ramp and off-ramp for data assets into DeFi
Ocean makes it easy to publish data services (deploy ERC721 data NFTs and ERC20 datatokens), and to consume data services (spend datatokens). Crypto wallets, exchanges, and DAOs become *data* wallets, exchanges, and DAOs.
Data Marketplaces with Blockchain Superpowers
Use Ocean Market to publish data, stake on data (curate), and buy data. Earn by selling, staking, or running your own fork of Ocean Market. Data has automatic price discovery. Data is published as interoperable ERC721 data NFTs & ERC20 datatokens. Compute-to-Data enables private data to be bought & sold. It's a decentralized exchange (DEX), tuned for data.
Buy & Sell Private Data, While Preserving Privacy
Compute-to-data resolves the tradeoff between the benefits of using private data, and the risks of exposing it. It lets the data stay on-premise, yet allows 3rd parties to run specific compute jobs on it to get useful compute results like averaging or building an AI model.
- Data Science
More Data, Provenance, and Earning Opportunities
As a data scientist or AI practitioner, you can benefit from access to more data (including private data), crypto-secured provenance in data & AI training, and income opportunities for selling data and curating data.
- Fine-Grained Permissions
Fine-Grained Permissions Using Role-Based Access Control
A large part of Ocean is about access control, which is primarily handled by datatokens. Users can access a resource (e.g. a file) by redeeming datatokens for that resource. Enterprises and other users may need more precise ways to specify and manage access. Ocean fine-grained permissions is for these use cases.
