The site explains that, in today’s market, companies make use of sensor data to optimize and
monitor their operations. The result of this is a single purpose data landscape.
The new DataBroker DAO platform is aiming to drive evolution towards a true “smart living”. It
is setting out to achieve this by making the data easily accessible to cities, organizations, and
entrepreneurs at an affordable price.
DataBroker DAO says that individuals, companies, researchers, and governments are
spending hundreds of billions each year on buying and maintaining IoT sensors. However,
despite staggering growth in the industry, all of the captured data is locked up in silos and so
called ‘walled gardens’.
DataBroker DAO aims to be the solution to this problem. Through using the platform, sensor
owners get remunerated in DTX utility tokens, while network operators also get recompensed
in DTX tokens
These network operators can then stream sensor data to an API, and the purchased data flows
back to the buyers, either through the DataBroker DAO Private Blockchain network or other,
traditional cloud solutions.
The company states: “With DataBroker DAO, we aspire to unleash long-tail creativity with the
use of sensor data to facilitate the conversion of incredible ideas into value adding services.”
It goes on to say: “By providing a distributed foundational layer for the buying and selling of IoT
sensor data, we expect that unimagined uses of data that exist in the hearts and minds of
entrepreneurs, researchers and organisations around the world, will emerge to create
incredible value adding services that enrich the quality of life in our cities and our societies as a
