What is OCEAN?
The Ocean Token is a standard ERC-20 token and can be stored in any wallet with ERC-20 Capabilities. The token is used as a unit of exchange for buying and selling data and AI services.
The Ocean Token was created by the Ocean Protocol, which is a tokenized service layer that reveals data, storage, compute, and algorithms for use with a set of deterministic proofs on availability and morality that serve as verifiable service agreements. There is staking on services to signal quality, reputation, and avoid Sybil Attacks. Ocean aims to help users unlock data, particularly for AI. It is designed for scale and uses blockchain technology that allows data to be shared and sold in a safe, secure, and unclouded manner.
Ocean Protocol allows data and services to be shared and sold safely by bringing business, technical, and governance frameworks together. Ocean Protocol stores metadata, links to data, provides a licensing framework, and has toolsets for pricing. A multitude of 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. The data owner controls each dataset.
