Detailed description

Datawallet is your digital wallet for your online data. It allows you to take your data from platforms such as Facebook, Amazon, Uber, Spotify and unify it in one place. You< control who gets access to your data,>learn what your data says about you, and get paid when you share your data.

The Data Exchange Token (DXT) powers Datawallet’s personal data management tools and decentralized data exchange. It plays an integral part in the underlying architecture and users can augment their Datawallet by purchasing different analyses and services with DXT. User can further earn DXT by permissioning their data on the exchange.

Problem

Datawallet was founded to fix the broken data ecosystem.

On one side exists individuals, who have no control over the data they create, no transparency into how it is used, and no ability to profit from its use, despite creating the fuel for the data-driven economy.

On the other side, companies waste billions in mistargeted advertising, offer sub-optimal goods and services, and are slowed in their innovation cycles, all due to incomplete and inaccurate customer data.

In the middle exists data brokers, scraping individuals’ data without their knowledge, and selling it to businesses who have no better option to improve customer insight.

Throughout the ecosystem, sensitive consumer data has been lost or stolen through negligence or theft.

Solution

To fix this problem, Datawallet devised a solution as simple as it is elegant. Empower individuals to sell their data directly to companies in a privacy preserving manner. This enables individuals to regain control of their data and profit from an asset that is rightfully theirs, all in a privacy-preserving and secure manner. Businesses can now ethically source complete and accurate information, allowing them to better engage with customers.

Features

You’rein control
Your Datawallet is private by default, giving you the power to choose which data you’d like to share, and who to share it with. All the information in your Datawallet is completely anonymous, secure, and encrypted.

Get paid when you share
The data you create rightfully belongs to you, and we think you should benefit when it’s used. Your data is a valuable resource, Datawallet helps you earn from it.

Tools to protect your privacy
There’s a lot of your data out there that’s been gathered without your knowledge or consent. Companies that gather this data must allow you to opt-out by law, but they don’t make it easy!

Take your data with you
It takes time for platforms to personalize their service to you. When you use a new platform, you’re stuck with a suboptimal service while you recreate data that already exists in one of your other profiles. With Datawallet, you can mobilize your data, share it across platforms, and get a personalized service within minutes instead of weeks.

Save time<
Stop wasting time filling out forms with the same info. Log in with Datawallet and we’ll help you fill all relevant fields, and unlike other log-in providers we’ll only pass on the extra data you explicitly permission for improved services.

      Roadmap

      • v1.0 Current Implementation

        In the current implementation of the Data-Exchange, data providers manage their profiles through a mobile device. The data profiles are collated into a central database and all data sales are mediated by dx-Insights.

      • Data Requester System

        There is no open Data Product Marketplace. Companies interested in accessing providers’ data do so through dx-Insights.

      • Data Provider System

        The Data-Profile Manager is the DataWallet mobile app, which is available for iOS and android. It communicates with a DataWallet-hosted Key-Server and a DataWallet-hosted centralized database. Potential data requests are posted directly in mobile application.

      • Data Exchange System

        All data exchanges originate from dx-Insights and posted in the mobile application.

      • v2.0 Smart-Contract Based

        The Smart-contract based ecosystem embeds the promise of DataWallet—transparent, opt-in data exchanges—directly into the architecture. At this stage the fidelity of the system is not dependent upon a trusted party (DataWallet).

      • Data Requester System

        Data Product Marketplace is open. Requesters can create data requests through the online interface or programmatically with the API.

      • Data Provider System

        All data stored on DataWallet-hosted centralized database is encrypted with a private key that only the data providers themselves posses. Exchanges are searchable from the provider mobile app.

      • Data Exchange System

        The Data Exchange is open—all data requests are executed by smart-contracts on the blockchain coordinating the provider’s data profile and the requester’s RequestManager.

      • v3.0 Fully Decentralized Data Profiles

        The Ecosystem with fully decentralized data profiles is the ultimate realization of the self-sovereign wallet. Interested Providers can store their profiles on systems of their choosing and interact directly with the Data Exchange.

      • Data Provider System

        Data-Profiles can be created locally using open and auditable code. Data Profile structure and Search agents are similarly open sourced and customizable.
