Unlocking new “x to earn” use cases with Data Unions at ETHcc

At my favorite conference: ETHcc in Paris!

Surf to earn, drive to earn, bank to earn are just a couple of use cases the Data Union paradigm unlocks. By selling user data with their explicit consent and splitting revenues between users and builders dozens of new “x to earn” use cases become available driving user growth in Web3, giving users a share in the data economy and onboarding them to crypto.

Meet the company that wants you to do yield farming with your e-bike

The twist is, that anyone with a Pave bike can rent out their vehicle to anyone who’s got the Pave app installed on their phone. In addition Pave owners are in full control of their driving data which they can monetize on their own terms. This opens up a completely new path towards a true sharing economy. There’s no longer a centralized company renting out bikes, cars or whatever new hybrid vehicle there is, but the owners of the e-bike themselves.

Why the Web 3.0 stack needs real-time data

There are many ways that a token economy can be designed. One popular choice, for example, are bonding curves to reward early adopters. Here an algorithm ultimately determines how a system can evolve. When designing these types of systems, it is advisable not to have too many degrees of freedom, resulting in large, complex systems that make it hard to intervene should problems arise.

That’s why it makes sense to start from a set of first principles. These first principles are the physics of the system, under which everything else within the system is governed. When testing these assumptions, seemingly irrational behavior from Network participants shouldn’t be excluded. As Zargham put it during the video chat, “it takes a lot of energy to climb Mount Everest, but that doesn’t mean people don’t do it.” … Streamr Blog
