Data and Interoperations For The New Internet

Essentia is the decentralized data management framework.

Essentia is the decentralized data management framework.
Forged by a set of protocols. Forming Essences.

Essences are full fledged, decentralized and interoperable containers of complete digital lives. Essence allows individuals, organizations or machines to fully own their data and assets.

Inside Essences, users own their data, identity and communications, enabling new powerful interactions. Third parties and dApps can easily access these data streams as pluggable oracles and developers can build on top of the Essentia framework to create data management tools, identity solutions, data exchanges, decentralized CRMs and much more.

The Problem

What if you were creating the most valuable resource on Earth, but giving it all away for free?

That’s exactly what’s happening to you, right now, with your data.  

Digitally collected data is responsible for generating revenues of over $1 trillion dollars annually, fueling the algorithms of giant corporations that profit from the data you serve them, every second of every day. For free.

We believe there’s a better way: a way for everyone to own and control all of their data, all of the time, and to decide what’s done with. A fundamental building block of the internet is missing, and we’re going to create it.

The Solution

We want to give users, corporations and their devices full ownership over their identity, data, possessions and personal communications.

That’s why we built Essentia, a decentralized data management framework that creates a new way to interact with the web, preserving full data ownership and control. A framework that is easily integrable with any device, application, blockchain or website and which can act as the standard for how the decentralized internet is accessed.

Use Cases
Platforms Built On Top of Essentia
essentia masternodes
Essentia will implement masternodes with a total block reward corresponding to 10% of the total supply of tokens ever existing to be PoS mined over the course of the next 7 years, plus the fees for each block.
  • Each masternode will require 100,000 (one hundred thousands tokens) to be locked in.
  • A total of 10,000 masternodes is to be expected.
  • Every block reward will be 10 seconds.
For more information, the document “ESS Token Utility” can be consulted here or from the Docs menu on top.
