About Datum

Datum is a secure and decentralized personal data bank account powered by Ethereum, BlockchainDB and IPFS. It lets individuals take ownership of their information so they can share it with businesses on their terms. The Datum Network builds the foundation for the new personal data information economy, a USD 120 billion market by 2022.

Datum is a decentralized and distributed high performance NOSQL database backed by a blockchain ledger. This technology allows anyone to backup structured data like social network data, data from wearables, smart home and other IOT devices in a secure, private and anonymous manner. Datum provides a marketplace where users can share or sell data on their own terms.


  • Users
    Submit data. Data can be personal data and collections thereof or data from IOT devices and any other data source
  • Storage​ ​Nodes
    Provide compute power and storage capacity to store data in the de-centralized network. Storage Nodes are part of the BigchainDB cluster that allows Datum to provide global scale storage of submitted data.
  • Data​ ​Consumers
    Any entity wishing to access data. Users can grant data under their precise terms, either for free or for a fee.
  • DAT​ ​Token​ ​Holders
    Govern the Datum network and provide the “fuel” enabling transactions on the Datum network.

Datum​ ​Client

The Datum Client empowers users to take control of all their data and optionally share or sell their data through the Datum network. The Datum Client is being designed for a large number of various platforms such as mobile and desktop. We are also designing support for embedded device platforms used in IoT devices, electric cars etc. to unlock the value of such device data.

Open​ ​Data

To allow humanitarian and other legitimate projects access to the data, these can register as projects. The user clients shows currently running projects requesting data access and users can control whether to give access or not based on their decision.

An example could information from digital health devices to medical institutions and researchers, or IoT devices in case of accidents such as natural disasters.
