Proposal R5

Fact Sheet

Recording from Town Hall 20 (April 28, 2021)

If you’re too lazy to read, feel free to check out this video of me going through the proposal.

Executive Summary helps data scientists and investors to make better decisions when buying data online. Our thesis is that markets are proxies for assets’ qualities.

On-chain markets present a huge untapped source of market insight ready to be harvested. By measuring and highlighting the qualities of OCEAN’s data sets, we improve the market’s overall health and performance.

Our long-term goal is to build an ERC-20 token that allows investors to gain diversified exposure to OCEAN’s best data sets.

Here’s our proposal for OceanDAO Round 5:
