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.

Data Publishers

Monetize your data, while preserving privacy and control.

Data Consumers

Buy data that you couldn’t get before: private data.

Publishing a dataset amounts to an Initial Data Offering (IDO). It can be data that the user has rights to, or open data with value-added.

Upon publishing a dataset, it becomes a data asset with its own ERC721 data NFT & ERC20 datatoken.

The publisher can set a fixed price, or let price be auto-discovered. Ocean Market supports the latter with an Automated Market Maker (AMM) powered by Balancer, deployed in a gas-efficient manner.

Anyone can stake OCEAN in a datatoken AMM pool. Stakers are liquidity providers. Stakers are also curators, as the amount of stake is a proxy to dataset quality.

  • Earn by selling data, staking, or building & launching your own marketplace. Sellers get most of revenue when a dataset is sold. Stakers earn a % of the transaction fee, as do marketplace runners.

  • Automated price discovery via an AMM, just like Uniswap or Balancer decentralized exchanges.

  • Privacy-preserving. Ocean Compute-to-Data allows private data to be bought & sold while preserving control and privacy of the data.
