Connect, Unify, and Monetize Personal Data on the Blockchain

VAEON is a decentralized protocol that enables individuals to fully control their personal data and its value while giving businesses the opportunity to build new business models in an intermediary-free ecosystem.



Tech Giants Monetize Personal Data

Personal Data Today

Nowadays, the value arising from personal data is captured solely by the web-era juggernauts (Facebook, Microsoft, Google, etc.), while the originator of the data is left empty-handed. This system is poised for disruption.

User Owns and Monetizes his Data

Blockchain, an innovative technology, will be the foundation for this new standard. We believe in a future where the user completely owns his data. Moreover, he is able to monetize his data and to decide the extent of what is shared or sold.

Similarly, we aim to empower companies by providing them with a protocol that establishes the rules for communication with and use of the user’s personal data. By doing so, new applications can be built that leverage personal data while removing the trust factor from the equation.

A Truly Decentralized Protocol


Power in the Hands of Users

There is no trusted central authority within the VAEON ecosystem. The protocol administrator is a voted entity who evolves, maintains and adapts the protocol in the future. Holding VAEO tokens grants the user the possibility to participate in the protocol’s governance. The voting power is calculated by a time-based staking function that converges against a fixed value.
