About the Project
Ocean Protocol is an on-ramp for data services into crypto ecosystems, using datatokens. Each datatoken is a fungible ERC20 token to access a given data service. Ocean smart contracts, Ocean libraries, and Ocean-powered front-ends make it easy to publish data services (deploy and mint datatokens) and consume data services (spend datatokens). Therefore Ocean provides decentralized access control.
About the Integration
The Moonbeam and Ocean teams have completed the first part of an initial integration: a successful deployment of Ocean’s contracts to Moonbeam. The full initial integration will also involve bridging OCEAN token from Ethereum MainNet, and a new deployment of Ocean Market webapp components for Moonbeam. Once complete, this will enable users to publish data, stake on data, and buy data in the Polkadot ecosystem in an open, secure fashion.
