BFG Superstars: WeDataNation’s Ocean protocol proposal granted!
Written by Elias Mendel
We are happy to announce that just a couple of weeks after the official launch of our incubator program, one of the teams has made an active contribution to the Ocean Protocol. During the DAO’s recent 15th round of proposals, more than 23,200 community votes were in favor of WeDataNation’s proposal!
The Ocean Protocol is a platform and marketplace that facilitates the decentralized provision and exchange of data, utilizing advanced blockchain technology that enables data to be shared and sold for AI training purposes in a secure, safe, and transparent manner.
The proposal by WeDataNation aims to establish a service that uses social media data aggregated from consumers which can be used for AI training purposes and seeks to fight the current data monopolization of big tech enterprises. The Ocean marketplace infrastructure and token economy provide an incentive for individuals to share their data and receive financial compensation using the native network $OCEAN token. The proposal will build around the existing infrastructure of DataUnion Foundation, a protocol revolving around the formation of DataUnions allowing individuals to collectively provide high-quality content by categories for AI training. This ensures the compatibility of the collected data for the use of third-party algorithms.
Figure 1: WeDataNation’s business model in a nutshell.
The concept relies on 3 major stakeholder groups. Publisher, i.e. ordinary individuals using social media, e-commerce, streaming or gaming services, etc. provide their data in data pools for financial compensation. Consumers, i.e. WeDataNation’s customers pay for that data to apply AI algorithms. Validators scrutinize and verify the data submitted to the data pools by the Publishers for a fee. WeDataNation provides the marketplace to match providers and analyzers and stores and encrypts the data decentralized.

Stay tuned for further updates, as new developments will be announced in the weeks ahead!
