Problems

  • Data Privacy Infringements For Users

    Data Privacy Infringements For Users

    Your data today is collected, monetized and utilized without your consent or awareness. The data industry today is dominantly controlled by centralized services that aggregate data illegally and sell them to other enterprises to generate huge revenues.

  • Collecting and monetizing data legitimately is difficult for apps

    Collecting and Monetizing Data Legitimately is Difficult for Applications

    Because there are no existing legitimate data markets for applications to monetize their users' data for additional revenue, applications often sell your data illegally to other services that further aggregate data to sell it to other enterprises.

  • Lack of legitimate and transparent data in quality and quantity for enterprises

    Lack of Legitimate and Transparent Data in Quantity and Quality for Enterprises

    There are no existing data marketplaces that allow enterprises to purchase high quality, insightful and legally acquired data at reasonable prices for their business intelligence and targeted marketing purposes.
