Proposal Earmark


Proposal Description

In data-driven businesses, we see two pain points, those which affect data producers and those which affect data consumers.

Every day, internet firms harvest and monetize their users’ data. There is, however, no compensation for users’ digital footprints. Since 2018, the general data protection regulation (GDPR) gives users (data producers) the right to access their personal data on each internet platform they use. Nevertheless, internet users (data producers) are often unaware that they can take advantage of GDPR’s power to access and monetize their data.

Meanwhile, companies need to harness insights from their clients’ data to grow their business and acquire and retain customers. For Data scientists (data consumers), it’s crucial to find reliable data to build robust AI models and capture actionable insights. However, limited access to high-quality data often constrains model performance and data insights to meet business needs.

Our DATALATTE DApp aims to relieve these two types of pain points by being the bridge between data producers and data consumers. On the one hand, we empower internet users to reclaim and monetise their personal data anonymously. On the other hand, we provide data scientists with the opportunity to access previously inaccessible, high-quality data for a small fee. At the heart of our platform are the four core pillars: trust, intelligence, community support and usability.

Grant Deliverables

  • Grant Deliverable 1: A blog post on dataNFTs
  • Grant Deliverable 2: Referral program with XP reward
  • Grant Deliverable 3: Dashboard’s Survey portal

Project Description

We empower internet users to monetize their own data and provide data scientists with access to non-identifiable users’ data using an AI Feature marketplace at an affordable price.

Final Product

The DATALATTE is a dApp platform with two main stakeholders (Data Producers and Data Consumers), four core DATALATTEfunctionalities (Audit Store, AI Feature marketplace, Compute-to-data and dataBarista NFTs) and a Data Marketplace powered by Ocean Protocol.

Value Add Criteria

The global data monetization market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 6.02% and is estimated to reach up to US$ 200 billion in 2021 [ref]. The increase in the market results on the one hand from the increase in the data basis and on the other hand from the better use of the data itself. 

However, it is not taken into account that now, only oligopolies give their data or its insights; if all data is merged into a single marketplace, the monetary and informal value will be significantly higher! If we succeed in taking over at least 0.00000055% of this fast-growing market, we will be able to generate a total transaction volume of 70K$ (R9, R11, R12, R17, R18 & R19 buck) to provide an ROI of at least 1.

Oceaners, we are pleased to submit a report on our deliverables on our R20 proposal:

  • Grant Deliverable 1: A blog post on dataNFTs

We have published two blog posts titled Fungibility which dives into NFTs, what they enable and how data NFTs can ownership via NFTs is the enabler of a fair data economy:

Our second blog post delves into how looking at security and privacy in web3 is fundamentally different than web2. We showed how privacy and security used to be based on human’s word and how it’s evolving on trust in protocol’s code:

  • Grant Deliverable 2: Referral program with XP reward
  • Grant Deliverable 3: Dashboard’s Survey portal

A demo of these features is presented in OceanDAO TH 88: Town Hall 88 · oceanprotocol/oceandao Wiki · GitHub

These features are under test and scheduled to be released on our App: on Sept 8th.


Thank you for submitting your deliverables and presenting the app during Town Hall. It was great to get a deeper look into the survey feature being developed, and the type of data that will be captured. Please note that the project is inching close to it’s 100k USD limit, and I would love to propose paying a closer look towards growth/funding/revenue/monetization plans, as a way to remain healthy.
