Data is The World’s Most Valuable ResourceUser data is the core value of all consumer facing apps. Centralized platforms mine and productize data for their own agendas, leaving control in the hands of a few companies. At dock.io we believe in this value being shared between users and apps to create a more connected and decentralized internet.
The Consequences of Closed NetworksA person’s profile and information lives on hundreds of apps which are all closed networks and centralized sources. These apps control data at their will, while users and other companies are left with limited opportunities.
Users Have Limited OpportunitiesInconsistent information
Most people have dozens of profiles online, many of which haven’t been updated in years, resulting in inconsistent information floating around the web.
Lost value and opportunities
The inability to transfer value in the form of experiences, reputations and reviews, means losing out on opportunities.
Apps own and control user information within their platforms. They change rules constantly at their consent and even share user data via partnerships without user’s knowledge. Users have little to no control over what centralized apps do with their data.
Companies Are Stifled From InnovatingCold start challenges
Building a product in this space is extremely difficult due to the "cold start" factor. Every platform relies on the same data, and is required to build their own source from zero.
Centralized platforms dictate the rules
Platforms have full control over the information they store, and are increasingly making it harder for third-party apps to access.
Introducing the dock.io Protocol
Connecting User Data Across the WebThe dock.io protocol is an open network revolutionizing how apps access user data and communicate with one another. User data powers nearly every consumer facing app on the web.
Full Ownership & ControlUsers have full ownership of where and how their data is used.
Maintain Value Across AppsUsers can transfer reviews, reputation and work history to maintain value across the web.
Instant Access to User DataApps connected to dock.io have instant access to a growing wealth of information about their users.
Data is Always Up to DateUser data is automatically updated across all apps at once, so it’s always up to date.
Increasing Network ValueThe larger the dock.io network grows the more value it delivers to everyone in the network.
Seamless SignupsUsers can save time and instantly import their professional data when signing up for new apps.
Under the Hood
Capable of Powering All Consumer AppsThe dock.io protocol is low in the tech stack making it capable of powering data for every consumer app in the world
How it Works
Powered by the DOCK TokenThe DOCK token transforms the internet, creating a new decentralized economy for data exchange across the web
VotingToken holders can introduce new proposals and vote on the future development roadmap of the protocol
Accessing DataApplications use tokens when users want to access data on their platform.
Sharing DataApplications are rewarded when users create new data to share via the protocol.
Ensuring Quality DataTo ensure high quality data, applications are only rewarded when other applications accept the data.
Widespread Use CasesThe Dock.io protocol is extendable beyond apps and products that exist today.
Example use cases include:
