Description[edit]

Datum is a decentralized and distributed high performance NoSQL database backed by a blockchain ledger build on top of Ethereum. This technology allows anyone to securely and anonymously backup structured data from social networks, wearables, smart homes, and other IoT devices. Datum provides a marketplace where users can share or sell data on their own terms.

Datum achieves the exchange of encrypted data through a combination of the DAT token powered marketplace on Ethereum blockchain and encrypted data exchange using a private key exchange on BigchainDB.


Datum acts as:

  • Decentralized Data Store: Secure, private and anonymous storage of structured data
  • Storage Nodes: Miners running Storage Nodes are paid for storing and providing low latency access to data
  • Marketplace: Users can choose to share their data selectively or even sell their data to trusted entities

Initial Coin Offering Details[edit]

To raise money, Datum did an ICO for its DAT token. Here's more information:

ICO start date: October 29th, 2017

ICO end date: November 29th, 2017

Datum attempted to raise the equivalent of $29.4 Million USD for its ICO, and was able to raise about $7.5 million USD. That's about 25% of its hard cap.

1.5 Million USD was raised for the pre-sale. In total, there are 3,000,000,000 DAT tokens.
