Ocean Protocol: A Decentralised Data Exchange


Ocean Protocol, supported by BigchainDB and DEX, is a decentralised data exchange protocol that lets people share and monetise data while guaranteeing control, auditability, transparency, and compliance to all actors involved.

Decentralising data sharing sounds like a huge task. In our second meetup coming up in March, we'll discuss how we're going to do it.

Join us to hear our get an in-depth understanding of how the protocol will work, the impact it will have, and how data marketplaces will function on top of the protocol. We'll also be talking briefly about how token distribution will work within the Ocean Protocol ecosystem.

If you're interested in data sharing, AI, blockchain, or cryptocurrencies, this event will be perfect for you!
