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 Network is a layer zero protocol that powers truly decentralized Web3 projects. The P2P Network’s real-time data functionality is chain agnostic and can be used by any Web 3 project as a decentralized pub/sub alternative.
The Network is run as a topic-based publish-subscribe system where each stream or pub-sub topic has its own peer-to-peer overlay network that is built and maintained by a set of BitTorrent-like trackers.
The Data Union framework is a data crowdsourcing/crowdselling solution. Working in tandem with the Streamr Network, Ethereum and xDai, the framework powers apps that enable people to earn by sharing their valuable data.
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.
