DataBroker DAO is the first marketplace to sell & buy sensor data. As a decentralised marketplace for IoT sensor data using Blockchain technology, Databroker DAO enables sensor owners to turn generated data into revenue streams. This will open up a wealth of opportunities for various industries. Data will be used and become more effective.
DataBroker DAO unleashes the potential of currently inaccessible, low value data into the creation of new transversal Value Added Services. It prevents people with powerful ideas to rely on people with powerful operational resources, in a phased, pay-as-you-grow, MVP model. As with the financial markets, where the importance and value of company data have been apparent for decades, giving rise to Bloomberg Market Data, Thomson Reuters, FactSet and a lot of vendors, the same opportunity will emerge for IoT sensor data. Doing so with a distributed foundational layer for the buying and selling of IoT sensor data we expect that unimagined uses of the data will emerge to create incredible value adding services that enrich the quality of life in our cities and our societies as a whole. DataBroker DAO is the first marketplace for IoT Sensor data that will connect sensor owners with purchasers of the data directly, utilising existing infrastructure from telecommunication providers operating sensor connectivity networks based on GSM, LoRa, SigFox or via a proprietary gateway of the sensor owner. In a sense, the DataBroker DAO can be likened to a “secondary market” for IoT sensor data and has been referred to as an “eBay” or “Amazon” for IoT sensor data.
THE DATABROKER DAO ALLIANCE
In the future we envision, the world where the DataBroker DAO platform will be an integral part of the “IoT data”-fabric, there will be, more than ever, a need for collaboration between the stakeholders in this ecosystem. These parties will need to find ways to work together to further their
collective businesses and use-cases. We formed the DataBroker DAO alliance to help facilitate this collaborative ecosystem. Apart from gaining essential insights into the requirements of the platform, we feel that guiding the stakeholders through this foundational change in doing business together will be the linchpin in the further development of the platform.
The presale phase of this token sale event starts on March 5th, 2018 at 4PM CET. During this presale a 50% token bonus applies (6000 DTX/ETH) and the minimum purchase amount during this period is 10 ETH.
The main sale will start March 26th, 2018 at 4PM CET. The sale will run for 4 week. The first day a 10% bonus will be awarded.
The tokens will not be tradeable until 1 week after the sale ends (April 30th, 2018). At this point in time we have a commitment to list the DTX token on Chankura.com at that time and are identifying one or two more exchanges to list it on, by that time
With the availability and the ability to trade the DTX token, the platform can move to the mainnet.
SETUP AND ONBOARDING OF AN EXTENDED TEAM
One of the larger challenges for DataBroker DAO will be scaling the team fast enough to cope with market demands. Onboarding a new sales team and additional developers is a daunting task. Since September this has been an active focus and this will be the case for the years to come.
GATEWAY OPERATOR INTEGRATIONS
The main road to mass adoption is integrating with gateway operators that enable the onboarding of millions of sensors in one go. The DataBroker DAO platform will be integrated with the gateways of these gateway operators. We will be working on both common standards and libraries to ease integration, and perform the initial integrations for the first operators in the DataBroker DAO Alliance.
