Together, Europeans have more private storage and computing power than all the data oligarchs put together. The polyPod harnesses this unused power to build a decentralised data economy. Sustainable, efficient and fair for all parties involved.
Together with European citizens, we are developing the polyPod. It harnesses the unused computing power of existing devices for privacy-friendly big data analyses in exchange for fair payment for users.
Together with businesses, we are building the polyPod into a Super-App that includes features and services for many aspects of personal and business life.
A decentralised digital ecosystem that works completely on the devices of the citizens.
A decentralised ecosystem cannot be built overnight, which is why we are developing it in stages. Each step must already create added value for citizens and companies. Together, they will form an Edge Data Ecosystem – the infrastructure for a decentralised European data economy.
All data is stored within the polyPod on the respective end device of the user. We can neither view the data nor are the data stored on any servers. The control is and always remains with the users themselves. The technological groundwork we develop is open source, so anyone can test and use it to build their own solutions for the Edge Data Ecosystem.
The polyPod stores personal data and provides an environment for functions that run algorithms on the stored data and interact with the user. It manages the identity of the user and which data belongs to which facet, as well as the data access rights for functions. The polyPod also manages the communication between pod instances, identity facets and the outside world. polypoly delivers it with some »basic functionalities« and additional features can also be provided by third parties.
