Why buy or sell?

In a data marketplace, typically, there are buyers, sellers, and brokers who derive financial value from their assets. Whereas EQ8 network eliminates data brokers and directly connects the data requesters to data providers.

Data Requestors: Requesters can gain access to an immense amount of information they desire directly from the audience or buyers for a valued price. This helps them get valuable and detailed feedback. Additionally, the data is authentic and its authenticity can be validated from the blockchain

Data Providers: They can share their knowledge, experience, or opinions on the product/ service safely and securely. In return, sellers get awarded points or EQ8 tokens.

Into the future

Hence, EQ8 Network currently provides a safe and secure global platform where data can be exchanged between the parties for mutual benefit.

This will not only contribute to creating a data economy but also benefit the users, the buyers, and sellers for a better and enhanced collection.


Seeing this, data providers would be sharing their information with companies and getting paid for it directly.

Examples of such cases are through surveys, polls, quizzes, reviews, ratings, and ad campaigns, forms that could be filled and submitted via mobile apps and websites readily available on the EQ8 network.
