The Streamr Data Challenge 

Democratise and decentralise access to real time Data.


Build a data business, the right way

The internet has long been a consummate environment for collecting immense amounts of data from large swathes of the population. With the increased use of cookies and other data mining tools, the internet is, essentially, a bottomless trove of useful data.

Data Unions are an ethical new way to sell user data, through the Streamr peer-to-peer real-time data network. By integrating into the Data Union framework, or building a Data Union app, interested developers can easily bundle and crowdsell the real-time data that their users generate, gain meaningful consent from users and reward them by sharing data sales revenue. By building Data Unions we can create open data ecosystems.


About the Programme & Rewards

In order to facilitate the building of Data Unions, we are launching the Streamr Data Challenge, a two month long Hackathon. We invite India-based programmers, designers and entrepreneurs to innovate and create utilising the Streamr Data Union framework.

200 USD grant to each team that qualifies for the 1st Cohort

5,000 USD to the winning team
