The decentralised digital commons, the new paradigm of data sharing

The new paradigm of data sharing

Since knowledge is a limiting factor in the commons and data is a non-rival good, one of the challenges of the 21st century is to succeed in creating the conditions that will encourage data sharing and allow it to circulate with a minimum of constraints.

Digital technologies are quickly taking up more and more space in our lives. On a global scale, the production of data has been following an exponential curve for over 15 years now. This data is sometimes considered as the new “black gold”, the fuel of the digital economy.

This publication covers:

  • The damaging consequences of accepting the statu quo
  • The possible alternatives we hope to bring with the concept of the Minimum Value Extraction Protocols (MVEP)
  • The prospects of a “European” model for data sharing in 2025
