What is Datum?
Datum is a decentralized and distributed high performance NOSQL database backed by a blockchain ledger. This technology allows anyone to backup structured data like social network data, data from wearables, smart home and other IOT devices in a secure, private and anonymous manner. Datum provides a marketplace where users can share or sell data on their own terms.
Decentralized Data Store
Secure, private and anonymous storage of structured data
Miners running Storage Nodes are paid for storing and providing low latency access to data
Users can choose to share their data selectively or even sell their data to trusted entities
The Datum network relies on the DAT token smart contract to provide secure trading of data while respecting the terms set out by data owners.
- Data owners pay small amounts of DAT tokens to store data
- Storage node miners earn DAT tokens for storing and transmitting data
- Data can be purchased by spending DAT tokens, on the owners terms
The Datum App
End users do not need to interact with complicated wallets, instead Datum provides a simple to use mobile app.
All data is encrypted in the app before its sent to the network
Data is cleaned from personally identifying information and patterns
Fast backup and retrieval of data through locally close storage nodes
Simple interface abstracts Datum network complexity for everyday users
Ability to share data with non-profit entities such as researchers, NGO's and others
Users can choose to selectively sell anonymized data to trusted entities in return for DAT tokens
RoadmapAt Datum we have one focus - Creating a viable data marketplace to start returning value to token holders in the shortest time possible.
