Datareum is a decentralized marketplace that will enable individuals to monetize their personal data, selling it directly to researchers and companies.
Datareum is a decentralized marketplace that will enable individuals to monetize their personal data, selling it directly to market researchers, academic researchers, and other interested parties. Built on the Ethereum public blockchain, Datareum’s platform will facilitate this peer-to-peer transaction of sensitive personal information securely, without the risk of hacking. Using online surveys as a starting point for building the marketplace, Datareum will employ incentive mechanisms that, over the long-term, will ensure the availability of superior quality custom data, providing an indispensable tool for researchers of all kinds.
Key components of the platform:
In a data marketplace, quality of data is essential. Data generated by bots, and low quality or fraudulent data generated by people only interested in rewards must be eliminated in order to produce a functioning marketplace. The question is how to provide and guarantee quality data that requesters can rely on and are willing to pay for.
As the decentralized ecosystem develops, more and more reliable and secure systems of validation of user’s identity will become readily available. Datareum intends to watch the space closely, integrating with these services as they are themselves integrated into legal frameworks and adopted by mainstream users. Such services aim to merge with national data registries, forming a legal, provable ID that can be used to verify information such as age, gender, location of residence, and income (based on taxes paid). All of this information can be verified as true or not without giving away private data (remaining anonymous) and allowing data providers to choose exactly what to make available.
Other platforms such as Indorse are building systems to verify credentials like skills and accreditation. Such information can also potentially be integrated in Datareum, again with higher value for data that has higher levels of verification. Another example is the Attores certificate issuance platform wherein an institution such as a university can issue their diplomas directly on the blockchain in the form of a smart contract. By integrating with these and other emerging systems, Datareum aims to build a marketplace with higher value data.
Datareum therefore proposes in the interim that uploaded data be verified manually by Datareum, with data that has been verified at higher levels having higher value. For example:
Level 1: Facebook/Google only.
Level 2: Government identification uploaded and checked manually by Datareum.
Level 3: Proof of address uploaded and checked manually by Datareum.
Level 4: Proof of income uploaded and checked manually by Datareum.
