The project is based on Ethereum blockchain. The project is designed in such a way that users can take control of their own data and exchange it between 2 or more dApps. This will be made possible through the use of data encryption and an incentivized token model. Moreover, the Dock.io native currency helps to facilitate information exchange by providing lucrative rewards to all the involved participants.
Under the Dock platform, users can form an ad-hoc network between themselves. In such a setup, all the data will be encrypted using receiver’s on-chain stored public key. According to the team behind the project, the originators of data are only required to be on the internet or online if the data they want to publish is fresh and it has not been published to the network before.
