What is Datum?
Datum is a decentralized global scale database with blockchain characteristics that allows anyone to securely store structured data. Datum returns data ownership to individuals and lets them monetize their data on their own terms. This lays the foundation to a new marketplace powered by a new asset class. Datum turns structured data into a tradeable commodity and is building the $120 Bln Data Economy.
