They don’t want you to know.
Your data has value.

Datafund is a protocol that guards personal data, provides safe storage and enables ethical data exchange. Individuals create their own datafund to reclaim, own and manage their data.

Scroll for more information on our efforts for the future.


Problem / Solution

Individuals reclaim, own and manage their personal data.
Companies use personal data in a legal*, fair and ethical** way.
No shady middlemen, no hidden oversight, just transparency.
Partnership with individuals creates new revenues for enterprises.
Only the data that wants to be free, becomes free.
Society profits.

* Coordinated by the Data Foundation

How it works

What is datafund?

Datafund is a new form of
personal data oracle and a data market where organizations are incentivised to give data back to individuals and to participate in a fair and ethical exchange of data value. Contributors to a specific datafund are rewarded with intrinsic tokens of a receiving datafund. #reclaim

Datafunds can connect to other datafunds.

General Data Protection Regulation

GDPR is an EU regulation that came into effect on 25 May 2018. The GDPR is intended to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. Thus, the primary objectives of the GDPR are to give control over their personal data back to citizens and residents and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.

Consumers will (finally) take over control of their personal and consumer data all around EU, but around 50% of companies are not going to be prepared for that.

Contact us if your company needs to become GDPR compliant. Send us an email.


Privacy Awareness Campaign

Privacy is a human right which is the foundation of personal freedom and a democratic data-driven society. As recent events have shown (Facebook - Cambridge Analytica), private data is heavily compromised and exploited by many companies. Sadly, still not enough people are aware about the importance of privacy.

To promote privacy, we have set aside a portion of DEX tokens to reward the most active privacy ambassadors.

The best privacy-related tweets with #privacyMatters and #datafund are going to be rewarded with DEX tokens and the tweet will be part of the official privacy awareness campaign. Don’t worry if you haven’t registered; we’ll track you on Twitter and our community managers will contact you.:)

The processing of personal data
should be designed to serve mankind.
Become a privacy activist. Earn DEX Tokens

Data Foundation: Human rights and ethics

Only a non-profit project can stay neutral and act in the best possible way for the individual and greater good. With the first release of the protocol, the code will be open sourced while all the rights will be transferred to a foundation.

Moreover, designing unstoppable apps and decentralised systems is uncharted territory and to prevent unintended side effects a discussion about ethics is needed, not just for Datafund but also for many other blockchain projects. Ethics is not something that should be done in isolation but should include as wide a set of participants as possible because ethics shapes society. Ethics is a social consensus.

To find out more about ethics on the blockchain initiative and human rights, see this ETHCC Paris 2018 conference Talk.

Datafund Technology Stack


Ethereum is a decentralised platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third party interference. These apps run on a custom-built blockchain, an enormously powerful shared global infrastructure that can move value around and represent the ownership of property.

More information ->



Swarm is a distributed storage platform and content distribution service, a native base layer service of the Ethereum web3 stack. The development objective is a peer-to-peer storage and serving solution that is DDOS-resistant, zero-downtime, fault-tolerant and censorship-resistant.
