“Secure crowdsourcing” with NuCypher
tl;dr A network of on-the-ground data collectors continually capture valuable real-world data, selling to customers with location-based products (e.g. Uber, Waze, Yelp). The NuCypher network manages access, protects collector privacy, and enforces their compensation.
Based on the case study: Access control for real-world data, generated by real-world humans
- Besides location-driven applications and autonomous vehicles, to which other domains could the secure crowdsourcing model be applied? E.g. collecting symptom data to combat an epidemic.
- What other decentralized infrastructure is required? E.g. a stablecoin to predictably remunerate collectors
- Could privacy be further protected by other technologies? E.g. differential privacy, FHE
Further questions, criticism and use case variations are very welcome!
