What is the dock.io ICO?
As a decentralized data exchange protocol, dock.io ICO aims to provide a solution to so-called ‘data hoarding’ in a professional environment on the web.
The protocol lets people connect their online profiles, experiences, reviews and reputations in a secure environment.
Tapping into the issue of an incredibly large amount of data being stored for individuals online, dock.io aims to integrate user profiles from different networks.
Why is dock.io on the blockchain?
A lot of sensitive information is stored and owned by centralized platforms, and the user is not in control over who their information is being shared with.
According to the whitepaper, “applications are disincentivized from sharing information and data because of the competitive marketplace and their reliance on data monetization for business purposes”.
As a decentralised protocol, dock.io encourages data exchanges between platforms, as it believes this beneficial for the majority of the public.
Who is behind the dock.io ICO?
The dock.io team consists of co-founders Nick Macaria and Elina Cadouri – previous founders of Branded and Outsource.
The rest of the team includes Stenli Duka, Evgeniy Zabolotniy, Todd Scheuring, Jeffry Harrison, Gabriel Moncarz and Fausto Woelflin. Their backgrounds are from companies including MotiveMetrics, HoneyBook, The Muse, Sabre Corp and Ampush.
Who are their partners?
At the end of January, the company said that over 3,000 users had been signing up to their app.
As a result of their success, they chose t0 partner with FundRequest – a decentralised marketplace for open source collaborations. Many of their employers now sit on the dock.io advisory board – in addition to founding member at Bitcoin Foundation, Charlie Shrem.
