Unleash untapped private data, idle processing power and crowdsourced algorithms

Project stage


Detailed description

Decentralized Machine Learning (DML) protocol is designed to expand the reach to untapped private data and unleash their potential to facilitate machine learning development while providing economic incentives and protecting data privacy. Machine learning algorithm will be run on the devices without extracting the data from the devices, which will be kept within the devices. Only the machine learning result will be aggregated with outcomes generated from other devices to form an unbiased, comprehensive and accurate crowdsourced analytics and predictions. Through DML protocol, both the private data and processing power for machine learning are decentralized as algorithms are run directly on individual devices by utilizing their idle processing power.


Often only the large corporations can afford investing huge initial capital and resources to build in-house machine learning algorithms or acquire tailor-made ones from consultancy firms and apply in their own businesses. Therefore, machine learning applications are often only found in some large international corporations rather than local or medium sizes companies.


DML aims to create a decentralized machine learning protocol and ecosystem, where customers, such corporate customers, research institutions, government and non-government organizations or even individuals, who wish to run analytical predictions can acquire appropriate algorithms from crowdsourced developers through the DML marketplace. 

With the aid of DML protocol, the machine learning algorithms can be run on the untapped private data and leverage the idle processing power of individual devices resulting in more precise predictions. Furthermore, the developers can improve their algorithm and its predictability by the crowdsourced model trainers in the DML protocol.

  • Token details

    • Token symbol ? Token symbol — a shorten token name. It is used during an ICO and after the coin listing at the cryptocurrency exchanges. : DML
    • Fundrasing target ? Fundraising target — the maximum amount of funds to be raised during an ICO. When it is reached, the developers stop selling the tokens because they do not need to raise more money for the project development. : 28,000 ETH
    • Token type ? Token type — a platform for a startup launch that influences the stability of blockchain operation, the speed of transactions and the fees. :Ethereum (ERC20)
    • Soft cap ? Soft cap — the minimum amount of funds to be raised for the project development. Sometimes when the soft cap has not been reached, the money is returned to the participants. : NA
    • Role of token ? Role of Token — type of token depending on the opportunities it offers to its owner. Utility tokens give their owners a right to use the project services, security tokens are aimed at bringing profit, and currency tokens are a money substitute. :Utility token
    • Total supply ? Total supply — a total amount of tokens that will be released by the developers. :330,000,000 DML
    • Escrow agent ? Escrow agent — a qualified agent who has the right of signature in a multisig wallet. An escrow agent participates in an ICO, monitors the financial operations of the developers and confirms their fairness. :No
    • Tokens for sale ? Tokens for sale — the number of tokens offered to the participants of an ICO. :118,800,000 DML
    • Whitelist ? Whitelist — a list of participants, who get an opportunity to buy tokens. To be whitelisted, you need to register on time because the number of participants and the registration period are usually limited. :Whitelist Closed
    • Additional emission ? Additional emission — an additional release of tokens. It can be done once after the crowd sale or on an ongoing basis. In the projects with a limited emission there is no additional emission. :No
    • Exchange listing ? Exchange listing — an assumed date when the token will be listed at a cryptocurrency exchange. The developers usually indicate it in a roadmap and a white paper. :NA
    • Accepting currencies ? Accepting currencies — cryptocurrencies and fiat currencies that can be used for buying the project tokens. :ETH,
    • Can't participate ? Can't participate — the countries where it is prohibited to buy tokens. These can be countries where ICOs are prohibited altogether, or countries that have the requirements that a particular project does not meet. :China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, USA,
    • Know Your Customer (KYC) ? Know Your Customer — a verification procedure for ICO participants, during which the developers can ask for personal data, a photo and a scanned copy of a passport of a potential investor. :Yes
