Blockchain protocol company honored for its work creating an ethical person-based data marketplace for the market research and insights industry

Measure Protocol, the ethical person-based data marketplace, was named as the Technology Impact award winner in the 2020 Marketing Research and Insight Excellence awards powered by Quirks. The awards were presented earlier today during a virtual ceremony. Measure Protocol was selected because of its commitment to building technology for the industry that is grounded in ethics, trust, accountability, privacy and consumer data sovereignty.

“Solving persistent challenges in the market research industry is what drives us forward as a company,” said Owen Hanks, CEO of Measure Protocol. “With this in mind, we started out by putting the provider of the data - consumers - in control. Utilising advanced cryptographic techniques we have been able to build privacy and trust that is needed to positively impact data quality, privacy concerns, transparency and ethics. Receiving this award is a testament to our team, and the industry, that these are the right things we should be focusing on.”

Measure has built a trust-based data marketplace in which individuals take control of their data and monetize it directly with researchers, advertisers and brands. Consumers contribute data by completing surveys and other data-generating tasks or by providing access to existing data sources such as purchase and location.

Through real-world applications of the technology, Measure has clearly illustrated the benefits of an ecosystem that is founded on principles of data sovereignty, privacy, transparency and fair compensation, addressing key challenges faced by the market research, advertising and AI industries.
