Datum provides a marketplace where users can share or sell data on their own terms.
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
