The project is a market based on Ethereum, which ensures the safe and transparent purchase and sale of personal data. The project allows consumers to create a passive income stream, monetizing their personal data. Companies can buy personal data directly from consumers p2p through a decentralized blockchain system.
Risks and disadvantages
There are few minuses in this project and if the team succeeds in accurately following the road map, it is likely that the project will be successful in the medium period. The integration process will take some time and therefore the popularity growth will not be rapid and will not occur immediately after the end of the preliminary sale of coins.
I’m sure that this project is interesting and promising, it certainly will be a success. A good and original idea, a fairly small competition in this segment and the relevance should create for the project good prerequisites for growth, and rapid development.
The current following population on the social media platform for example facebook and twitter is quite high and the project will be known to many people which will gear up the popularity. The Opiria platform is used by a number remarkable companies such as intel and Nissan this will draw other major companies small and big to use this platform for their data storage. The website is user friendly and easy to use. Determining of future market prospects shall be made easy for the producing industries using this platform.
Risks and disadvantages
However the response of the following population is not consistent in terms of comments and feedback which might be assumed as corrupt and non authentic follow up. Delayed Implementation of some of the road map tasks does not show diligence towards delivering as promised.
With the competitive advantage Opiria is most likely going to enjoy a large portion of the existing market compared to its competitors. The team is getting involved with the public to discuss its merits and also its capabilities.
How will PDATA Token holders benefit from Opiria's existing business and future success?
The great thing is that we already have a working product with existing renowned customers such as Mercedes, BMW, Audi and GM. The platform we propose is already in use with all clients, minus the blockchain element.
We use the contributions from the Token Generation Event (TGE) to accelerate two things:
2.growth of our user base (users who are providing data, information, feedback)
PDATA Token holders will benefit in two ways:
1.Since we already have the platform minus the blockchain element the “time to market” for the platform including the blockchain element is much shorter than if the development would start from scratch after the TGE.
Also having all those renowned customers makes sure that our consumers will be able to start selling their personal data right away to big corporations after the launch of the blockchain element.
2.Consumers that hold PDATA Tokens have an advantage over consumers that don´t hold tokens. If a consumer holds more PDATA tokens than another consumer, he is more likely to receive a "personal data request” from a company earlier than consumers with less PDATA tokens. This gives consumers that keep a larger pool of PDATA tokens on-hand on average a small time advantage to sell their data to companies
Will the unsold tokens be burned?
Yes, tokens that are offered and that are not sold get burned.
When will PDATA tokens be distributed to contributors and unlocked?
Tokens will be distributed immediately after contribution by Opiria’s smart contract.
The PDATA tokens will be unlocked 30 days after the TGE.
The bonus tokens will be unlocked 30 days after unlocking the main tokens.
Once the PDATA is integrated into Opiria, will all future transactions happen only in PDATA token?
Yes, on the platform all transactions are made in PDATA tokens; no more FIAT currency. Anyway, consumers can decide to cash out the PDATA tokens earned by selling their personal data to companies into fiat currency.
Will you be chain agnostic or strictly Ethereum?
We start on Ethereum but we design everything so that we can migrate to a different blockchain in the future if necessary or advantageous.
What is the difference between Opiria and PDATA?
Opiria is our existing product. Opiria is a consumer research platform that allows companies to understand the needs and requirements of their consumers by receiving data/information/feedback about how their consumers use their or their competitor´s products or services, what they like about it, what needs to be improved, what is missing and so on.
PDATA is the token that we are issuing. PDATA token will be used to compensate consumers for providing personal data to companies via our global decentralized marketplace for the secure trading of personal data.
How do you handle the the GDPR compliance?
With the platform we ensure that following guidelines of the General Data Protection Regulation are fulfilled:
- The consumer owns the personal data and has full control over it.
- Personal data never leaves the consumer in an unencrypted format and only the consumer holds the key to decrypt it.
- Personal data can only be transferred to a company with the consumer´s consent. In addition to that the consumer knows exactly who gets the data and for what purpose.
- The trading of personal data is fully transparent and traceable on the blockchain whereby the anonymity of the trading parties is completely protected.
A more detailed description on how the platform is designed to comply to the GDPR is available in the PDATA Whitepaper.
