Boson Protocol is excited to announce that NiftyKey, the Boson powered crypto rewards platform, will collaborate in partnership with Swash, the data value market pioneer that rewards users for the value their browsing data generates.

Swash is placing data control firmly back in the hands of internet users, by enabling passively earned rewards to be paid straight into users’ wallets, via a browser plug-in that collects data in the background as users surf the web.

NiftyKey, the crypto rewards platform, enables crypto businesses and loyalty programs to enhance and differentiate their value proposition by offering real-world products and services as rewards to their customers. Customers can swap cryptocurrency for NiftyKey NFT ‘Commitment Tokens’ that can be exchanged for real world products and services.

Data democratisation is a core part of Boson Protocol’s and NiftyKey’s mission, and with Swash’s key objective to create a data economy for everyone, this partnership perfectly aligns with the core purpose and mission.

Since the advent of Web 2, users have unwittingly made a Faustian deal with proprietary platforms by trading a ‘free at the point of use’ model in return for their behavioural consumer data. In the age of information, where data is the most valuable asset, big tech has to capture and hoard data in order to control the digital advertising space; unfortunately we find ourselves in a position where the world doesn’t know anything different, and now it’s critical to reinvent the game. That’s where data market companies like Swash come in…

Swash in partnership with NiftyKey will be able to incentivise and reward users for allowing Swash to collect their surfing data. $DATA tokens passively accrued for employing the browser plug-in, can be exchanged for a NiftyKey NFT ‘commitment token’ to be redeemed for a physical product or service at a future date. All of this of course takes place crypto-natively, with users able to store, consume or transfer NFTs, whenever they want, all from within their non-custodial wallet.

“I’m excited about our partnership with NiftyKey and being able to offer enhanced rewards to the Swash community. Incentives and rewards are an integral part of the Swash model and we’re pleased to be able to offer new types of rewards to members.”

Reza Naeeni CEO Swash

This is a pivotal moment for the internet as we currently know it. As awareness grows around alternative web3 apps to safely surf and earn, away from the grip of proprietary platforms, innovators like Swash in partnership with NiftyKey are able to offer a fair, open and distributed customer experience for everyone.
