An ecosystem for sharing data and associated services. It provides a tokenized service layer that exposes data, storage, compute and algorithms for consumption with a set of deterministic proofs on availability and integrity that serve as verifiable service agreements.
Ocean Protocol is a business, technical, and governance framework that allows data and services to be shared and sold. Ocean Protocol stores metadata, links to data, provides a licensing framework and has toolsets for pricing. Data marketplaces can hook into Ocean Protocol to provide "last mile" services to connect data providers and consumers. Ocean Protocol is designed so that data owners cannot be locked-in to any single marketplace.
