DataBroker DAO is undergoing a real transformation and is experiencing exciting times. That is the least we can say. Much has been written about our challenge to get our crypto listed, but that is about to change. Bit4you, the first and only fully regulated Belgian exchange with fiat on and off ramp, has been selected as a trustable and qualitative exchange to list the DTX token. And more exchanges will follow in the not-so-distant future.
Trying to get your crypto asset listed on an exchange is challenging. In 2018, we applied with no less than 15 reputable exchanges, which resulted in listing our DTX token on CoinFalcon, Tokenjar, and Probit. However, CoinFalcon recently delisted the DTX token as part of their general removal of altcoins, with no communication or notification whatsoever. This made us realize that we urgently have to address this matter.
We immediately applied with several other exchanges, including Yobit, Idex, Bittrex, Beaxy, io, Gate.io, Bitmax and Upbit. But this application process is expensive and extremely time-consuming, and often you get no response at all from the platform’s owners.
“We are highly aware of the exchange situation”, says Roderik van der Veer, founder and CTO of DataBroker DAO. “Over the last two years we submitted for almost all reputable exchanges. We made sure that after the recent delist wave we kept an exchange reporting to CoinMarketCap and one with fiat on/off ramp. Adding more will not change the low liquidity; we believe that any changes in that respect will come from the commercial adoption of the platform.”
Bit4you is the first exchange platform for crypto assets to operate from Belgium on a European level, facilitating the transition between cryptocurrencies and traditional currencies such as Euro or Dollar. The platform is in line with Belgian legislation and with the new directives on the fight against terrorist financing and money laundering. Bit4you charges a 2% cash in/out fee, but there are no trading fees for buying or selling your crypto.
If you want to try out different trading strategies, to find out which one is best without taking any risks, you can open a free demo account and get 100.000 (fake) USDTs to buy your first assets. In the form of DTX tokens, that goes without saying …
As we said, we also applied with several other crypto exchanges. And we kindly request our community to support us in the listing process, by getting us in touch directly with the right contacts. Do you know anyone at one of these exchanges, please let us know.

Increased safety thanks to the connected cars. Discover now how data exchanges can help saving lives and preventing accidents.
Every year, road accidents are responsible for 1.25 million deaths and 50 million injuries around the world. There is one vehicle per ten inhabitants, a figure that is likely to explode with the development of emerging countries. Improving security is therefore a key issue. Since 90% of accidents are due to human error, it is hoped that full or partial automation of the operation could reduce their number or severity.
In general, on the six-level autonomous driving scale, vehicles with advanced interactive driver assistance systems and cooperative intelligent transportation systems can be considered connected. Safety applications are designed to increase situational awareness and limit traffic accidents through communications between vehicles and infrastructure vehicles.
Driver assistance technology can be based on camera systems, sensor technology and vehicle data networks. Functions may include adaptive cruise control, automated braking, GPS integration and traffic warnings, smartphone connection, driver alert and hazard warning.
In terms of security, vehicle-to-vehicle communication technologies could mitigate traffic collisions and improve traffic congestion by exchanging basic safety information such as location, speed and direction between vehicles in range. It can complement active safety features, such as forward collision alert and blind spot detection.
Vehicle to vehicle data exchange
Cars connected to the network will be able to “talk” to each other and avoid risky situations. In case of sudden braking of a vehicle, the system will communicate with surrounding vehicles to improve the flow of traffic and avoid accidents.
The coordination between the vehicles allows a better management of traffic lanes, optimal fire management and avoidance of bottlenecks. The creation of dynamic local maps becomes possible, thanks to the sharing of the information captured by each vehicle. Data management is not only about safety, it helps smart cities to deal with mobility issues.
Just feeling safe is already considered a great benefit. “Ecall” is a technological innovation allowing to make an automatic emergency call. With systems like this, already present in a few vehicles, emergency services can be faster and save more lives.
Automatic detection of technical problems
Automatic detection of technical problems is an advantage for both the user and the manufacturer. The vehicle has software that can monitor it in real time, providing updated information to the driver. This system will also facilitate the tasks performed by professionals: the detection of a defect and its origin or the need for maintenance or wear of certain parts.
The automobile insurance sector (personal and professional) is also entering a phase of change. Thanks to behavioral data from car drivers, insurance companies can now better determine premium rates and terms, incentivize eco-driving safe-driving, develop new economic models.
Connected cars and data diversity
A connected autonomous car integrates wireless telecommunications systems that allow it to collect information that it can record, process, operate, predict and transmit to other vehicles, or send to the road infrastructure. The data collected is numerous and varied. Some are related to the flight, such as distance information with another vehicle measured by a radar, or geolocation data. Other data concern the life on board, for example the transfer of music stored on a smartphone or a movie … It is easy to imagine that future autonomous cars will be able to process up to several gigabytes of data per second.
What can DataBroker DAO bring to the mobility and safety market players?
The growth of the urban world creates challenges in terms of mobility. Both Data Providers and Data Users can benefit from a safe and reliable platform to face those challenges. Self-driving cars can safely exchange data with other vehicles, service providers, road infrastructure and Smart Cities. The platform even provides data monetization functions and automated revenue sharing between the parties, allowing the creation of new data services based on a revenue sharing model of data.
