I've been interested in developing a sequestered carbon backed currency and thus started researching how this could be done. Good approximation of soil organic carbon content is needed and by inherently commoditizing this data, there is an incentive for data collectors and researchers to publish this data into this database. The data is going to be used to build a predictive model of global soil organic content.
What it does
Currently just a frontend interface forked off from https://commons.oceanprotocol.com Commons marketplace. It can publish datasets, search published datasets, explore datasets on map. It's possible to set price for dataset in Ocean tokens. In the next iterations, I want to dive into economic abstractions of the price of datasets and let publishers choose what currency they ask. It would be interesting to implement multi-currency backed datasets, possibly with https://balancer.finance/ pools.
How I built it
Studied the codebase of Commons interface and composed from there. Map is implemented with https://leafletjs.com/
Challenges I ran into
I had practically no programming skills or experience before I started this project.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Everything I learned during this challenge.
