3.4 Million Ocean Tokens. 3 Inspiring Tracks. Global Community Participation. Build the New Data Economy with us!

Imagine a world where corporations, start-ups, public institutions and people are able to share data freely and securely to solve the world’s most pressing problems.

A world where proprietary data can be shared in a secure environment without compromising data security and privacy, where data is no longer locked up in silos and individuals retain ownership & control of their data.

We can build this world together.
