OceanTel - Decentralized Caller ID

Name of Project: OceanTel

Proposal in one sentence: A decentralized caller ID app built with Ocean Protocol

Description of the project and what problem is it solving: Centralized apps like truecaller help us get the owner of unknown mobile numbers. They do it by collecting contacts of people who have there apps installed, and then the apps serves the information to the one who requires this information. But, in this case the data published gets no benefit as well as the collected data gets shared with everyone hence tampering privacy.

[x] Creating a Flutter plugin for Ocean Network
[x] Wireframing the entire mobile application
[x] Developing the cross platform application on Flutter
[x] Deploying the application

Additional Comment : We are comparatively new to OCEAN PROTOCOL but we are really impressed and are looking forward to try implementing OceanTel. We are confident about completing OceanTel , please feel free to raise your questions in the thread.

Hi OceanTel team, I thought I’d let you know that you need a minimum of 500 Ocean inside the 0x Wallet you provided, BEFORE voting ends.

If you do not have the minimum Ocean provided by then, you will not be eligible to receive a grant.

Please review the wiki’s criteria for eligibility.

Thank you!

I assume they are eligible now, :stuck_out_tongue:
What data goes to OCEAN and will that not be PII? Is this adhering with the guidelines and data policies?

I am not really convinced right away as I see a lot of personal information involved here and the process how this is being secured remains unclear to me. If you could elaborate a bit on the process that would be welcome.
