Episode 58 - Taking Data Marketplaces Open Source with Blockchain - Blockchain Disruption Podcast

Looking for a few extra bucks? What if we told you your data could be the means to a quick payday?

Henri Pihkala, CEO of open-source data exchange platform Steamr, knows that your data is worth more than you think. He explains how decentralized platforms enable data-sharing marketplaces where something useful can become something great.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve got a proprietary data set or a new way of ranking professional baseball players. If you’re interested in sharing, selling, and elevating your data and someone finds it valuable, you should be able to capitalize. That’s what Henri and the team at Steamr believe.

Find out how Henri and his crew are elevating data sharing with blockchain technology. You will also discover when you can expect to be able to sell your data, how it will all work, and why the future of data sharing will be far brighter than the present.

For ten years, Henri was the Owner of Toiminimi Henri Pihkala where he consulted in the areas of e-commerce, system integration, logistics, and IT infrastructure. He founded Steamr in 2017 and hasn’t looked back.
