Datum is a decentralized and distributed high performance NoSQL database backed by a blockchain ledger build on top of Ethereum. This technology allows anyone to securely and anonymously backup structured data from social networks, wearables, smart homes, and other IoT devices. Datum provides a marketplace where users can share or sell data on their own terms.

Datum achieves the exchange of encrypted data through a combination of the DAT token powered marketplace on Ethereum blockchain and encrypted data exchange using a private key exchange on BigchainDB.

Datum acts as:

  • Decentralized Data Store: Secure, private and anonymous storage of structured data
  • Storage Nodes: Miners running Storage Nodes are paid for storing and providing low latency access to data
  • Marketplace: Users can choose to share their data selectively or even sell their data to trusted entities
