Swash x Ocean Protocol partnership
Earlier this week, Ocean Protocol launched Ocean Market as part of their V3 update. Swash has partnered with Ocean as a day 1 Ocean Market Data Launch Partner, making it possible for Swash data to be bought by data buyers and staked by the community.
This partnership will open Swash up to a wider audience of data buyers and, with that, bring more value back to the community. We’re super excited to be a part of this and are confident it will set new standards in the decentralised data sphere, bridging the relation between Streamr and Ocean Protocol. It’s a win-win-win for everyone involved.
If you have any questions, send them over in the Swash Telegram channel!
1World Online partnership
We’re excited to partner with 1World Online, a Silicon Valley-based company that provides Consumer Intelligence to advertisers to make data-driven business decisions. This partnership marks the real-life potential of Swash for data buyers, making clear the benefits, practical application, and impact Swash will have on the data economy at large.
“1World believes in decentralised, incentive-powered Web 3.0, where people own their data and get rewarded for their online activities. Swash serves this purpose, making it possible for us to upgrade our offering to our clients in a transparent and ethical way.”
- Alex Fedosseev, Founder & CEO of 1World

We’re set on redesigning the data economy to work better for everyone and to create a better internet.
We believe this is only possible by rewarding the data creators (yes, that means you) for the value generated online and by recognising every internet user as an integral part of the data economy.
Swash makes it possible for everyone to profit from their data, redefining how data is collected and valued, with the goal of accelerating change and redefining our data economy.
