What is Streamr?
Streamr’s primary objective is to create a decentralized infrastructure dedicated to real-time data, effectively replacing central message systems with a global peer-to-peer network. This ambitious initiative promises users the ability to securely engage with real-time data streams, capitalize on immediate data via a marketplace, and access Core — their comprehensive real-time data toolkit.
The Streamr Network operates as a decentralized system focused on collecting and disseminating real-time data streams from a plethora of sources including IoT sensors and various smart devices. This layer zero protocol amplifies the capabilities of decentralized Web3 projects. Organized around a topic-based publish-subscribe model, each distinct stream forms its own P2P overlay network, steered and sustained by BitTorrent-like trackers. Complementing this, the Data Union framework offers a unique avenue for data crowdsourcing and crowdselling, integrating seamlessly with Streamr, Ethereum, and xDai to fortify apps that reward users for sharing invaluable data.
Central to the Streamr ecosystem, the DATA token, which adheres to the ERC-20 standard, plays multiple roles. It serves as the primary mode of payment within the Data Marketplace and acts as the chief incentive mechanism within the Streamr Network, streamlining transactions and encouraging active participation.
