DataBroker DAO is the first marketplace to sell & buy sensor data. As a decentralised marketplace for IoT sensor data using Blockchain technology, DataBroker DAO enables sensor owners to turn generated data into revenue streams.
ICO start date: 2018-03-19
DataBroker DAO unleashes the potential of currently inaccessible, low value
data into the creation of new transversal Value Added Services. It prevents
people with powerful ideas to rely on people with powerful operational resources,
in a phased, pay-as-you-grow, MVP model. As with the financial markets, where
the importance and value of company data have been apparent for decades,
giving rise to Bloomberg Market Data, Thomson Reuters, FactSet and a lot of
vendors, the same opportunity will emerge for IoT sensor data.
Doing so with a distributed foundational layer for the buying and selling of IoT
sensor data we expect that unimagined uses of the data will emerge to create
incredible value adding services that enrich the quality of life in our cities and our
societies as a whole.
DataBroker DAO is the first marketplace for IoT Sensor data that will connect
sensor owners with purchasers of the data directly, utilising existing
infrastructure from telecommunication providers operating sensor connectivity
networks based on GSM, LoRa, SigFox or via a proprietary gateway of the sensor
In a sense, the DataBroker DAO can be likened to a “secondary market” for IoT sensor data and has been referred to as an “eBay” or “Amazon” for IoT sensor data.
