Market for Data Analysis (MADANA)

As you are reading this, you and all your devices are creating a manifold of data. But you are not made aware of it, nor are you profiting from it.

The vision of MADANA is to re-think today's behavior with any kind of data. Therefore, we are working on a solution to bring privacy back to data producers.

MADANA is a first step to gaining back control over one of our greatest assets. To achieve this goal, we are collaborating with experienced companies and political institutions.

CREATING THE WORLD'S FIRST OPEN DECENTRALIZED POOL OF INFORMATION


This new data analysis market is achieved with a system which offers open access to analysis results based on various kinds of data from different sources while preserving the privacy of its data originators by design. All data is client-side encrypted and will only be decrypted by the data owner if he agrees to participate in a remote triggered data collection. For doing so, the owner will be rewarded with PAX which will be automatically transferred by the underlying smart contract. Only the anaylsis result is shared and not the origin data the analysis is based on.

BENEFITS

Data Producer

By platform design data producers of any kind can monetize their data without giving up control over their data or compromising their privacy.

Plug-In Provider

Plug-in providers can profit from their data analysis and programming knowledge, by developing and implementing new analysis schemes and applications through an easy to use interface.

Data Analysis Buyer

Everyone can purchase custom analysis results with optional cross-analytics insights from a continually growing pool of information. Data analysis results can be purchased on demand with no need for costly data management.



Data Privacy - The MADANA Way

In 2015 there were more than 700 million data records that have been compromised, in 2016 this number almost doubled to 1.3 billion. Neither government, nor private industry seems to be able to deter hackers from gaining access to sensitive data. In many cases breaches are not detected for months and some cases are probably not detected at all.

IMAGINE A WORLD WHERE YOU ACTUALLY OWN YOUR DATA

At any time data is created. It is created by your smartphone, your computer and all the other smart devices you own. Any action of yours, it all results in more data created. All your personal data combined is called the virtual you. But sadly you don’t really own it. Right now you are handing over your private information by agreeing to general terms and conditions. And the virtual you is worth a lot of money.

PAX

PAX

The Privacy Analysis Exchange Coin (PAX)

PAX is the essential cryptocurrency for the MADANA ecosystem, enabling transparency and trust for all participants.

Data producers and plug-in providers will be rewarded with PAX for their participation through smart contracts based on Blockchain technology.

WHAT IS MADANA AND HOW DOES IT WORK

MADANA is a platform for data analysis that uses Blockchain technology allowing participants to get in on the data market with their own data and simultaneously preserving their privacy by design. The vision of MADANA is to re-think today's behavior with any kind of data. Therefore, we are working on a solution to bring privacy back to data producers. MADANA is a first step to gaining back control over one of our greatest assets. To achieve this goal, we are collaborating with experienced companies and political institutions.


Our Roots - Bitcoin Aachen

Back in 2014 Christian Junger, Max Kordek, Yan Schreier and Eugen Salkutzan founded Bitcoin Aachen, a local meetup and university group. Educating about Bitcoin and Blockchain in general was always important to them so it is no surprise that three years later they would return to a packed venue to do what they love most: Talk about Blockchain.


We are all satoshi Interview

Christian was invited to share his personal Bitcoin story and the idea behind MADANA in an interview conducted by Rick Falkvinge, the famous activist and founder of the Swedish Pirate Party. The interview is recorded in four clips and is full of interesting information. Watch now the entire interview to learn more about Christian’s background, his thoughts about building a Blockchain company and to see what privacy by design and bringing back power to the people really means at MADANA.
