I. The Datum Vision:
Datum’s vision is to decentralize data storage and democratize data access, thus making it much more transparent for both data sellers (you and me and everyone else that produces data through our social media, IoT devices, health records, automated vehicles… etc.) and buyers (large, medium, and small enterprises, research, other NPO/NGOs institutions… etc.) alike to exchange data via the Datum network.
II. Benefits of Using Datum for All:
We also see Datum as an ecosystem that would benefit all parties involved: We reward data producers for willing to sell their data and we respect whether or not they want to sell the data via the Datum network (they have a choice). Miners that host the storage nodes would be able to be rewarded as well. Buyers could buy needed data in a much more transparent manner. Society as a whole could greatly benefit from this more fluid flow and transparency of data, leading to effective problem-solving in multiple levels. It’s a win-win-win-win situation for everyone involved.
