DataBroker DAO: An Exclusive Review

DataBroker DAO is a marketplace that is designed for buying and selling sensor data. It is the first ever attempt to create a blockchain based decentralized marketplace for IoT sensor data. Over this marketplace, sensor owners will be able to turn their device generated data into stable streams of revenue. The platform is set to open up major opportunities for different industries. Besides, it will also ensure that the data collected will be put to effective use.

How does it work?

The platform is going to interact with multi-sig contract and Ethereum addresses at its core. The core of this platform is the registry of sensors and data streams that will be offered by the platform. The streamed data can be live data that is sourced from an IoT sensor and the sale of data will be based on time span.

The stakeholders of the DataBroker DAO will be the owners of sensors, data processors, buyers of data, and the gateway operators. The owners of the sensors that decide to sell their data will earn 80 percent of the amount received. They will be required to pay a small recurring fee for the opportunity to place their sensor on this platform. The data processors will buy the data with the goal of enriching it and reselling it.

The buyers of the data and the processors will be able to acquire data as a service. As a result, they will no longer need to make expensive hardware investments to acquire the resources they need. Besides that, they will be able to gain access to data that would have otherwise remained in data silos of the sensor owners.

The gateway operators will let the data flow to the DAO. The data following into the DAO will come from billions of IoT devices globally across a wireless sensor network. These gateways can be operated by Telecom companies in each country enabling sensor owners to sell data on the DAO platform. While sensors owners get 80 of the revenue, gateway operators will receive 10 percent while the other 10 percent will go to the DAO to cover operating costs.

The Token

This platform is going to be powered by the DTX token. It is an ERC20-based token. The token will be used as credit for buying and selling the sensor data within the platform. The public sale for this token will be held from March 26, 2018, to April 23, 2018.

Andreessen Horowitz’s $300m Crypto Fund Buys Stakes in Stablecoin Project

An upcoming stable coin project featuring a loaning system has bagged a $15 million investment from Andreessen Horowitz. VC Firm to Govern MakerDAO The venture capital firm, with a history of high profile investments into crypto projects, bought 6 percent of the total MKR supply through its $300m crypto fund, a16z crypto. By doing so, the US firm has got the rights to govern the Maker network, which includes MakerDAO, the stable coin firm, and the Dai Credit System as it becomes the first DAO-enabled stable coin project. The investment also marks a16z’s very first strategic purchase in the crypto industry. Katie Haun, general partner at a16z, believes MakerDAO will provide a compelling opportunity to their fund in the crypto-space. The former federal prosecutor, who is also renowned for having led the investigation against Mt Gox and Silk Road, said in her press statement: “MakerDAO’s technology, ecosystem and talent have put theory into action to deliver a decentralized stablecoin that we believe will help drive the future of the crypto economy.” For MakerDAO, a $15 million investment means more funds to develop their Dai Credit System. Not to be confused with MKR, which is a proof-of-stake token, the Dai Credit System uses a specialized stablecoin called Dai. The Dai token is soft-pegged to the US Dollar and is created during a seemingly unique loaning process. “Dai is created when asset owners deposit collateral to secure a loan, which is denominated in Dai stablecoin […] This allows owners of illiquid or unstable assets that wish to retain those assets over the long term to gain short-term liquidity, i.e., an ability to spend value otherwise locked in those assets while still retaining those assets,” stated Haun. For now, borrowers will be able to use ETH token as collateral to secure a loan from MakerDAO. The team has also launched a multi-collateral DAI system on the Kovan Testnet. It would allow borrowers to collateralize a diverse basket of crypto-assets in addition to ETH. The Maker network, in general, makes use of a set of autonomous smart contracts to coordinate the loan system. That said, anybody with an internet connection and with some collateral to spare can create Dai stablecoins, without needing an intermediary. “With an exciting fall full of announcements, MakerDAO is making its mark as a vanguard of blockchain technology. The team looks forward to continued product excellence and rapid Dai adoption in the coming months,” the Maker team said as it signed off.
