Example dataset lifecycle within Ocean Protocol.
  1. This raw data is then stored on Azure Storage
  2. The Data Provider registers the data’s existence, storage location, price and payment address within the Ocean network
  3. The Data Consumer searches for available data sets on the Ocean network
  4. The Data Consumer selects the previously mentioned data set, and initiates a transaction to pay the Data Provider on the registered Ethereum address
  5. This transaction is validated by the Ocean network
  6. The Ocean network releases the hyperlink to the data set from Azure to the Data Consumer
  7. The Data Consumer downloads the data set from Azure
  8. The Data Consumer (in this case an ETL Provider) can enrich the data set, and publish it back to the Ocean network, effectively taking the role of another data provider in the network.
