DataVault

Overview:

DataVault is the world’s first decentralized privacy-preserving content management and data exchange protocol built on blockchain technology. Using the privacy guarantees of Secret Network to handle data encryption and access management as well as the decentralized data storage solution of IPFS, DataVault as a protocol empowers a suite of front-end applications that can easily plug into the modular secret contracts that compose DataVault. Key to the design of DataVault applications is the ease of uploading data, purchasing access to the data, as well as disputing the integrity of the underlying data. YouTube, Periscope, Theta, Xbox Game Pass, and Provenance are all conceivable use cases that could be easily partnered with and add the decentralized and privacy-preserving equivalent leveraging DataVault and its ecosystem of applications built on the Secret Network blockchain.

Metadata:

Encrypted datasets that are downloaded by consumers can contain unique metadata that is publicly viewable by the consumer. This metadata can consist of videos, screenshots, data proofs, trials, demos, limited software versions, low-resolution images, trailers, etc. in order to convince the consumer to purchase the viewing key for the encrypted dataset they have downloaded. Additionally, this publicly visible metadata can interact with the front-end application representing a specific dataset attached to DataVault. What exists within the Metadata of the downloaded encrypted dataset is only limited by the creativity of the publisher.

Summary:

DataVault is still currently in development. DataVault will also include the first decentralized privacy-preserving marketplace titled “Secret Bazaar”. More information will be released soon in regards to Secret Bazaar and how it integrates with DataVault!
