People need the ability to add value to society, the ability to take their ideas and sell them in a way that's borderless and global. True data ownership allows people to control where their data goes and who gets to see it. Ocean Protocol allows people to buy and share data securely while preserving privacy. Data is a new asset class, and Ocean gives people the power to unlock the value of data.
Bruce Pon is the Founder of BigchainDB and Ocean Protocol, blockchain startups focused on bringing data and AI together since 2013.
