Fair Data


Resistance is Never Futile

Imagine a society of a completely private digital life where your privacy is not weaponised against you just to sell you more things. Imagine a society where data is used for social good and value is distributed fairly.

Fair Data Society is a non-profit initiative that is reimagining the data economy and creating a fair and decentralised data layer. Fair Data Society recognises online privacy as a basic human right and a basis for progress for all.

Changing the world, 3 steps at a time

Trustless, decentralised & accountable

Fair Data Society DAC (Decentralised Altruistic Community) is a new way to catalyse people around a socially-beneficial goal. It’s hosted on Giveth, a decentralised charitable platform that enables fundraising combined with clear project breakdowns, milestones & documentation, project overseers and completely transparent funding. The DAC is also the first step towards a DAO.

From Data Slavery towards Fair Data Society

In the new world, data is labor. Recognition of data as labor acknowledges us as workers in the data economy. In addition, labor should not be exploited. We have fair trade, why not fair data?
