Staking on data in Ocean Market is the easiest way to start with. In staking, you earn a cut of the transaction fees as a liquidity provider (LP). You’ll earn additional rewards from Ocean Data Farming program, when that launches.
Publishing and selling data in Ocean Market takes a bit more effort, but has far more earning potential. In selling data, you’re earning the sale value of the data asset itself, rather than a cut from transaction fees. This could be 100x or more upside than just staking.
Building & launching
Building & launching your own market takes the most work, but has the greatest potential earning. As the “house” you earn from marketplace fees: your own cut of every single data asset sold on your market.
