Ocean Protocol, supported by BigchainDB from Berlin (https://www.bigchaindb.com/) and DEX (https://www.dex.sg/) from Singapore, is a decentralized data exchange protocol that allows people share and monetize data while guaranteeing control, auditability, transparency, and compliance to everyone involved. It also offers developability through open access for developers to create new and innovative services.

It aims to nurture a data ecosystem and community where more data can be made available for data analytics and AI. With Ocean Protocol, the playing field is leveled for everyone to access data and enable competition in a field that otherwise is likely to get monopolized by a handful of big players. The protocol is powered by an added native token, OCN, which serves as the means of exchange within the network.

Ocean Protocol is supported by BigchainDB and DEX with deep expertise in distributed systems, artificial intelligence, databases, data markets, exchanges, open source software development, and open source community management.

Come down and meet Daryl Arnold (https://www.linkedin.com/in/darylarnold/) on Thursday, 30 November. He will take you through Ocean Protocol and its vision to revolutionize how businesses share and apply data, and unlock data for artificial intelligence.

You don’t want to miss out if you are a data provider, data consumer, miner, developer, or specialist in data, blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, or cryptocurrencies.

Spaces are limited so register now! We look forward to seeing you!
