The benefits

A wide range of parties will benefit greatly

Sensor owners

Are able to monetize their data and turn a sunk cost into a potential money maker and at least the opportunity to recoup some of their investments in IoT sensors.

Network operators

Gain scale and speed in the adoption of their network as connected telcos can present a win-back to their enterprise accounts, a clear USP.

Sensor manufacturers

Can stop the "race to the bottom” for production and pull resources and capital out of manufacturing and allocate these to profitable SaaS offerings.

Smart city initiatives

Can limit the upfront cost of populating the town with sufficient sensors and turn the expense into an investment with a 2-3 year payback period and a continuous income stream after that.

Agricultural sector

In the Agricultural sector in Belgium today, 10% of farmers are "techie". They deploy sensors include for wind, temperature, barometric pressure, humidity, PH level in the soil. The platform will provide the possibility to recoup some of this cost.


Can get access to thousands of sensors and can buy data directly and more cheap on the marketplace, cutting out established data providers.

The date of the main token sale will be announced shortly.
