The Pivotal Event for the Data NFT Revolution

As the anticipation builds, Itheum is thrilled to announce the Championship Round — the final stress-testing event before the Data NFT Tech and Data Marketplace goes live. This important event is essential to revolutionize data ownership, access control, and rewards through Data NFTs.

Data NFTs are transforming how we handle data by offering a seamless validation, portability, and exchange mechanism. In a world where data has become increasingly valuable, Data NFTs empower individuals and organizations to harness the power of unique datasets while ensuring security and transparency.

Understanding Data NFTs and the Data Marketplace

Data NFTs are unique, one-of-a-kind datasets wrapped into non-fungible tokens, enabling seamless validation and exchange. These NFTs offer Data Access Control, Portability, and Licensing, revolutionizing data ownership and unlocking a new asset class.

Itheum’s Data Marketplace allows users to discover and trade data with their peers using Data NFTs. The platform operates as a peer-to-peer marketplace, with transactions facilitated through smart contract technology, connecting data providers and data consumer in a secure and transparent ecosystem.

Test and Refine Key Functionalities

During this round, users will have the opportunity to test key functionalities, such as Data NFT Minting, Data NFT Wallet, and the Data NFT Marketplace where Data NFTs are traded. This hands-on experience will help us identify and resolve any remaining teething issues, ensuring a smooth and efficient launch.

Gratitude to Our Gold Sponsors

We would like to express our gratitude to our gold sponsors and communication partners for their invaluable support in making the Rumble in the Data NFT Jungle event series possible. Together, we are pioneering the future of unlocking the tremendous value in our data.

Exciting Rewards for Testers

As a token of our appreciation for your participation in the stress-testing event, testers will enter a $5,000 USDC prize pool. Additionally, a percentage of the rewards will be donated to charity, making your involvement not only valuable for the project but also contributing to a greater cause. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to help shape the future of Data NFTs and make a difference.

(Please note that the testing rewards (in MultiversX USDC) will be distributed to the same wallet address you used during the Devnet testing event. i.e., The same wallet you used on Devnet during the testing event will also receive the USDC rewards on mainnet.)

What to Expect After the Championship Round

Once the Championship Round is complete, the Itheum team will work tirelessly to analyze user feedback and address any issues discovered during the stress-testing event. We are committed to ensuring a seamless and secure launch fueled by the valuable insights gained from this event.

As we prepare for the official launch of the Data NFT Tech and Data Marketplace, stay tuned for more updates on the platform’s features and capabilities. Your participation in the Championship Round will play a vital role in shaping the future of data ownership and exchange through Data NFTs.

About Itheum

Itheum empowers data ownership in the Web3 and Metaverse ecosystems and creates new market value for your data. It enables this by providing “decentralized data brokerage” technology. It’s a suite of tools that facilitate high-value data to be bridged from web2 to web3 and then traded peer-to-peer. It allows for “viral adoption” via our creative “Data NFTs” (provide “inner value” to NFTs and enable royalties / limited supply), “NFMe ID” technology (a living Metaverse avatar representation of you — wrapped as an NFT and backed by personal data) and innovative Data Coalition DAOs (governance entities that bulk trade your data with your consent). It also aims to be fully privacy-preserving, regulation-friendly, and multi-chain, making it the most comprehensive core blockchain data and identity infrastructure available in the market with use cases in both the enterprise and consumer space.
