April 27, 2022 – Toronto, Canada


After eight months of hard work, the H2O team announced the launch of H2O, a milestone for the entire Web 3.0 data economy. H2O is a non-indexed and decentralized stablecoin asset backed by OCEAN. H2O is now live on the Ethereum mainnet.

In any industry, the transformative power of data is impossible to ignore. McKinsey reports that data “can help unlock $3 trillion to $5 trillion in economic value.” The Economist writes that “the world’s most precious resource is no longer oil but data. With AI mature enough to unlock the value of data, data becomes the planet’s most important asset.

In its early days, the “data revolution” was dominated by big tech. Fortunately, Web 3.0 is beginning to take over a significant chunk of the innovation design space, reaping the benefits of the parabolic growth of the data economy by thinking of the many, instead of concentrating value in the hands of the few.

While access to data in the Web 2.0 paradigm is limited by mega-corporations such as Google, Amazon, and Meta, Web 3.0 offers a new way for users and builders to level the playing field for this asset. precious.

Individuals should no longer remain in the dark or act as passive users without rights to the value they create. It’s now 2022, and Ocean Protocol has matured a lot to realize its vision of democratizing access to data while preserving the privacy of those who create it and respecting the human values ​​of individuals who would otherwise be considered simple exploitable assets by tech giants. .

H2O was designed to be the stable asset to catalyze trading and staking of data assets in the ocean market and other ocean-powered data markets in the web 3.0 data economy. booming.

Using H2O reduces data price volatility compared to using OCEAN directly. It will benefit various users data providers will have more predictable revenues, data consumers will have more predictable costs, and data pool holders will have a reduced risk of impermanent loss.

In turn, these benefits will accelerate adoption and activity in ocean data markets.

With the launch of Ocean Version 4, then Ocean Data Farming (to boost data consumption volume), Ocean Protocol will become the Schelling point of the Web 3.0 data economy, as well as a flying of inertia for ever more data.

This virtuous cycle will be accelerated by the stable asset H2O for the benefit of users. Therefore, H2O has an important function and mission -to Become the de facto medium of exchange in the Web 3.0 data economy.

Protocol mechanics

Poseidon is the “non-governance” token of H2O, PSDN. PSDN holders will help guide the protocol in setting parameters while accumulating value through excess auctions and native emissions.

A glimpse of the future

For its version two, H2O will transition to a multi-collateral model, where it will be backed by data assets in addition to OCEAN. It is an idea that breaks paradigms. It is a stable asset backed by a new asset class data themselves.

With data as a trillion-dollar asset class, it positions H2O extremely well for long-term stability and increases its appeal beyond basic data-oriented users into the broader DeFi ecosystem.

In short, H2O exists to accelerate the transition to a new data paradigm. from closed to open, from volatile to stable.

Sebastian Gomez, Commercial Manager at H2O, said:

“We want users and manufacturers, data providers and data scientists to participate in the democratization of access to data. We believe that this transition alone could trigger a new renaissance in many industries. The full outcome of the paradigm shift is impossible to anticipate, but we know it will be significant.

“The decentralization and democratization of data, along with the protection of its market players from aggressive price volatility, creates a watershed moment for society. and we are honored to be in the eye of the storm, grateful to our community and our team members who believe a new path is possible. We are conscious and excited that these changes have the potential to change everything.
