Ocean Protocol is a decentralized data exchange platform designed to allow data providers to securely and privately share valuable data and artificial intelligence models while maintaining control over their data. It enables users to discover, access, and use data through a marketplace while ensuring data privacy, security, and compliance with data sharing agreements. Through this protocol, publishers can earn money from their data while maintaining privacy and have control, and along with this, users or data consumers will have access to a set of data that was previously unavailable or difficult to find. These datasets can be found on Market Ocean, a place to buy, use and sell them.

The Ocean platform is built with the goal of facilitating the exchange of data, and connecting users who need this data, or cannot afford to store it, with users who have data to sell. In return, data providers of the Ocean Protocol cryptocurrency are rewarded.
