This paper introduces
DataBroker DAO, a peer to
peer marketplace created
to provide IoT sensor
owners with a clear path
to data monetization and
data consumers with a
decentralized market to buy
IoT sensor data.
With DataBroker DAO, we aspire to unleash long-tail creativity with
the use of sensor data to facilitate the conversion of incredible
ideas into value adding services.
By providing a distributed
foundational layer for the buying and selling of IoT sensor data, we
expect that unimagined uses of data that exist in the hearts and minds
of entrepreneurs, researchers and organisations around the world, will
emerge to create incredible value adding services that enrich the quality
of life in our cities and our societies as a whole.
The global market for IoT sensors has
surpassed 600 billion USD per year ¹
including the purchase, installation and
maintenance of sensors and the acqui-
sition of software packages to interpret

Individuals, companies, researchers and governments are spending
hundreds of billions each year on buying and maintaining IoT sen-
The growth of the investment and applications in IoT is truly stag-
gering and the high operation costs are a huge entry barrier. And yet, all
data captured by these devices is locked up in silos and walled gardens.
The amount of money spent on IoT is
truly staggering as is the number of devic-
es already deployed. By 2016, the global
market for IoT sensors surpassed 600
billion USD per year, which is expected to
grow to 1.2 trillion USD per year by 2019.
This include the purchase, installation and
maintenance of sensors and the software
packages to interpret and enrich the
data. By 2016, there were no fewer than 9
billion sensors deployed globally, which is
expected to grow to 33 billion by 2019².
And, whether for primary usage or enrich-
ment and direct resale, the data remains
grossly underutilized and t...
DataBroker DAO unleashes the potential of currently inaccessible,
low value data into the creation of new transversal Value Added
It prevents people with powerful ideas to rely on people with
powerful operational resources, in a phased, pay-as-you-grow, MVP
model. As with the financial markets, where the importance and value of
company data have been apparent for decades, giving rise to Bloomberg
Market Data, Thomson Reuters, FactSet and a lot of vendors, the same
opportunity will emerge for IoT sensor data.
Doing so with a distributed foundational
layer for the buying and selling of IoT sen-
sor data we expect that unimagined uses
of the data will emerge to create incredible
value adding services that enrich the qual-
ity of life in our cities and our societies as
DataBroker DAO is the first marketplace
for IoT Sensor data that will connect sen-
sor owners with purchasers of the data
directly, utilising existing infrastructure
There are a number of stakeholders in the DataBroker DAO including
sensor owners, gateway operators, data processors and data buyers.
Below is a definition of each of these stakeholders.
Sensor owners are the stakeholders who
have purchased IoT sensors and make the
data emitted from their sensors available
for sale via the DataBroker DAO platform.
This is a diverse group who have generally
purchased sensors in order to improve the
efficiency of their operations.
The key role of Sensor Owners in Data-
Broker DAO is to sell the data from their
sensors on the platform.
Data Buyers are those stakeholders who
will purchase data on the platform. This
purchase may be to use the data in its
raw form for their own purposes or to
purchase the data with the intention of
transforming/enriching the raw data to be
resold with added value via DataBroker
DAO (see Data Processor below).
The data emitted by the billions of
devices deployed globally flow across a
wireless sensor network (WSN) operated
generally (but not exclusively) by large
telecommunications companies in each
country. This may be a traditional GSM
network, a LORA network or an alternative
such as SigFox.
The key role of Gateway Operators in
DataBroker DAO is to expose the gateway
they operate to enable sensor owners to
sell their data on the platform.
The diagram below demonstrates
how these stakeholders interact in

WHO “WINS' IN THIS STORY?
Sensor owners (data providers) are able
to directly monetise their data to generate
passive income that will turn a sunk cost
into a potential money maker and at least
the opportunity to recoup some of their
investments in IoT sensors (purchase,
installation, maintenance, software licenses
to interpret the sensor data). A sensor
owner will earn 80% of the amounts
received and pay a small recurring fee for
putting the sensor on the platform.
Data buyers and data processors get data
as a service so do not need to make the
upfront investment in hardware to get
the data they require. Another advantage
for both buyer types is that DataBroker
DAO provides access to data that would
otherwise be trapped in the data silos of
Gateway providers: gain scale and speed
in the adoption of their network/devices
as the partner connected to DataBroker
DAO can present a win-back to their
