Ocean Protocol is an open-source protocol built on the Ethereum blockchain. Its primary purpose is to provide businesses and individuals with a service to exchange data and data-related services. The protocol utilizes 'data tokens' to enable data owners to control access to their datasets. Data owners can monetize their data by receiving these tokens from users who want access to the datasets.
Band Protocol (BAND) is a cross-chain data oracle platform founded in 2017. The platform collects real-world data and combines it with APIs and smart contracts to enable on-chain and off-chain data exchange for decentralized applications (DApps). Initially, Band Protocol was built on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain. However, in June 2020, it transitioned to the Cosmos network to reduce gas fees and optimize costs. In essence, Band Protocol acts as a bridge between real-world data and blockchains.
Marlin is a protocol built on the Ethereum network, where the accuracy of smart contracts is ensured by the Ethereum validator network.
