Society is becoming increasingly reliant on data, especially with the advent of AI. However, a small handful of organizations with both massive data assets and AI capabilities attained worrying levels of control which is a danger to a free and open society.
We aim to unlock data, for more equitable outcomes for users of data, using a thoughtful application of both technology and governance.
Our team and community is committed to kick-starting a New Data Economy that reaches every single person, company and device, giving power back to data owners and enabling people to capture value from data to better our world.Ocean Protocol is governed by a Singapore based non-profit foundation, whose mandate is to ensure open access to the protocol and platform, provide data governance, encourage the network ecosystem growth, and take measures to ensure that the platform becomes ever more decentralized with time.The Ocean Protocol Foundation has contracted BigchainDB to build the core protocol, network, marketing, and community activities.

Ocean Protocol is to be a part of fast growing market of Database-as-a-Service and cloud storage. According to MarketsandMarkets its CAGR 2019 will reach 67% with total market revenue 14B USD. Competition here is strong especially among blockchain projects, such as Apex, Pikciochain, Storj, Bluzelle, Boxdrive, Sia, Tresorit, Filecoin, AWS. Potential revenue coming from financial database trading is about 300B USD, PwC says. It must be noted that potential database for storage is so massive that competition on this market is hardly to be aggressive. Moreover every company stated above has a different strategy, for instance Ocean Protocol aims to build up database trading for AI technology development that sounds unusual and demanded. Also some strong partnerships must be highlighted here such as Singapore government together with some tech companies.
Only 1% of global database collected by major companies is processed. Ocean Protocol aims to build up trading platform where database can be purchased for tokens. But now only technical papers are available with no prototype. On the other hand the project is on presale stage and its looks logic and potentially effective. The project promoted follows market trends. The risk is a lack of detailed roadmap that promises to launch the network in Q1 2019. Token in the Ocean Protocol model is a sufficient part being an exchange medium between users. In addition users founding nodes for database storage are also rewarded so that the model turns decentralized. Nodes getting reward increase the total tokens in circulation. Considering token features above it is hardly to be considered as a security. According to the roadmap token will be available for trading on exchanges in 2019.
The current stage of tokensale aims to raise 18M EUR. Whitelist started 15 February. Min individual cap is 250 EUR that makes tokensale accessible enough. But the major risk is lock ip period for 1 year for tokens purchased so that investors will not be able to trade them. It must be noted that ICO is not the only method of fundraising – Ocean Protocol has raised 4M EUR via venture capital. Investor’s share in total token pool is 25% and current tokensale covers only 6.5%. Maximum token cap is about 300M USD that is considered over estimated enough. But one must borne in mind that similar projects are traditionally well judged by crypto community and Filecoin success story of raising 250M USD is a relevant example.
Project’s team is experienced enough. Most of the team members are specialists of BigchainDB and DEX pte with experienced technical specialists. The company has 6 founders with vast experience in technical and business analytics since the beginning of the century. Marketing director works has been working marketing since 2015 with previous 10 years’ experience in accounting. In addition team has a marketing specialist with 10 years of relevant experience.
