  • Become an Ocean ambassador

Let's explore each...

What builders can do

Build Your Token-gated AI dApp

Monetize by making your dApp token-gated. Users no longer have to use credit cards or manage OAuth credentials. Rather, they buy & spend ERC20 datatokens to access your dApp content.

Go further yet: rather than storing user profile data on your centralized server -- which exposes you to liability -- have it on-chain encrypted by the user's wallet, and just-in-time decrypt for the app.

Build Your Token-gated REST API

Focus on the backend: make a Web3-native REST API. Like the token-gated dApps, consumers of the REST API buy access with crypto, not credit cards.

Build Your Data Market

Build a decentralized data marketplace by forking Ocean Market code to quickly get something good, or by building up from Ocean components for a more custom look.

What data scientists can do
