Streamr’s mission is to build a decentralized infrastructure for real-time data, replacing centralized message brokers with a global peer-to-peer network. The project aims to allow users "to publish and subscribe to cryptographically-secured data streams, trade real-time data on the marketplace or use Core, the real-time data toolkit".
The Streamr Network is a decentralized network aimed to gather and publish low-latency real-time data streams from IoT sensors, machines, and other smart devices.
The project has built a Data Marketplace on top of the network, which enables anyone to easily share or monetize real-time data. While Streamr Core gives you all the tools needed to create, process, visualize, and sell your real-time data without writing code.
The DATA token is an ERC-20 token used across the Streamr platform. It is used for payments on the Data Marketplace, and the incentive mechanism on the Streamr Network.
