The Tech Industry's information flow is broken.

The Tech sector is growing twice as fast as the global economy1 increasing the demand for data about technology companies, products, investments, investors and market dynamics. From Virtual Reality to Initial Coin Offerings, today's startup ecosystem is so dynamic that individual platforms can no longer provide up-to-date comprehensive datasets about the entire industry.

By leveraging the latest advances in blockchain technology, the DX Network creates an open market for Tech Industry data to consolidate existing knowledge and seed new data collection efforts—uncovering the vast amounts of data still missing today. It provides the universal data foundation needed to power platforms, research and services for and around the Tech Industry.

Big Data and Business Analytics generated $150 billion in worldwide revenues in 2017. This figure is expected to exceed $210 billion by 2020.
IDC

The data backbone of a healthy Tech Industry, fuelling innovation for decades to come.

The DX Network is a true peer-to-peer marketplace which enables anyone to buy and sell data about the Tech Industry through an open API. It is built to be integrated in a wide range of live applications, from deal intelligence platforms to social networks.

Status quo
The DX Network
Status quo
Isolated players and datasets.
Most industry data is unavailable. Available data is scattered, inconsistent across datasets and/or stale. Data collection efforts are often redundant.
The DX Network
Next gen. collaborative crowdsourcing.
Consolidation of existing knowledge. Increase in production and collection of data. Creation of the broadest source of Tech Industry knowledge, ever.
Status quo
Locked up data.
Vast amounts of sought-after data is passively collected by application and service providers but unutilized or underutilized.
The DX Network
Open data market.
Passive data collectors effortlessly turn unutilized data into revenue streams. Existing data platforms use DX as a sales channel to maximise the utility of their data.
Status quo
Data is the new oil—we need pipelines.
No standard or infrastructure to transact in data. Data extraction, cleaning, selling and buying is tedious and costly. Difficulty to monetize data is stifling innovation.
vs
The DX Network
Making the data economy a reality.
Data collected by a wide range of organizations and methods accessible through a single API. Payments transparently secured and settled on the blockchain.
Status quo
Scraping attacks, data theft.
Data published in isolation is subject to being scraped and reused without remuneration while scraping is technically—and often legally—impossible to prevent.
The DX Network
Scraping and theft economically absurd.
More expensive to scrape data outside the DX Network than buy from it. Network dataset too dynamic to maintain an up-to-date parallel copy cost-effectively.
Status quo
Ad hoc industry dynamics.
Decisions based on intuition and network due to data chaos caused by the recent increase in the number of startup ventures and democratization of investing.
The DX Network
Better data for a better industry.
Data producers/collectors finally profit from their data. More data-driven organizations and decisions. Larger ecosystem of products/services for the Tech Industry.

Built on Ethereum, powered by the DX Token.

The DX Network's unique pay-per-datapoint model is made possible by the ERC20 DX Token. Combined with the DX Network SDK, this singular cryptocurrency enables the sale and purchase of data on the DX Network with single-datapoint precision.

Utility.
DX Tokens are used to purchase data and pay for network operations like search. The DX Token's utility is proportional to the amount of data on the network.
Stability.
The use of a native cryptocurrency for transactions on the DX Network provides a layer of protection against the volatility of larger markets.
Integrability.
Buying and selling data on the DX Network from any application requires nothing more than the DX Network SDK and a wallet with DX Tokens.
Versatility.
Industry-specific data marketplaces on the DX Network share the same currency, making the DX Token the ideal enterprise cryptocurrency for data.
Open data can help unlock $3–5 trillion in economic value annually.

Milestones, Roadmap and Deliverables.

October 2014
Startup Tracker launched at TechCrunch Disrupt London—wins Evernote Prize.
The venture that would eventually lead to the inception of the DX Network started as a browser extension to access CrunchBase information while browsing. In its simplest form, Startup Tracker already attracted attention in the Tech community, from Product Hunt, all the way up to the BBC.

Startup Tracker's first year was dedicated to iterating over the product with early-users which ranged from solo founders to investors through innovation departments at multinational companies. It was during this key year that the business landscape, challenges and opportunities surrounding the Tech Industry’s data were uncovered.
January 2018
The DX Network's development starts, joins Imperial College VCC accelerator.
After 9 months of preparation work, development of the DX Network starts as the team joins one of the premier accelerators for Science and Technology ventures in the UK at Imperial College London (8th best university in the world, QS World University Rankings 2018).
