EnLedger Data Market is a step towards a new incentive-model for the internet, where you will control your own data

Eventually Data Market may be able to reward users for sharing all types of data
including paid, secure healthcare information sharing with clinical trials and medical researchers, polls and opinions / surveys,

energy and home performance contractors and industry groups, appliance manufacturers and servicers, energy researchers
