Insights Network (INSTAR) and Big Data Protocol (BDP) unite to enable the mutually beneficial data exchange of online survey results and shopping + dining receipts with customer feedback attached to reduce dependency on legacy data brokers

Dear Instars Community,

Today, we're happy to announce a strategic collaboration with Big Data Protocol. This collaboration enables mutually beneficial data exchange with blockchain verifiable records of consent for increased transparency between data requesters and data providers while reducing the dependency on legacy data brokers.

Our teams have been working closely over the past few months on dissecting online survey results along with the growing number of shopping and dining receipts data with in store customer feedback attached that's received from the global community with kyc verified participants in 166 countries.  

The team at Big Data Protocol has extensive experience in pioneering the market research industry while working on Amass Insights for the past decade. Their expertise and knowledge of the market research industry is vast when it comes to collecting and selling receipt data, building data marketplaces, etc.

Together, we're developing new era market research strategies powered by blockchain that benefits both individuals and organizations who seek to monetize their data and data requesters who seek to purchase datasets in a more direct and transparent way.

Receipt dataset with in store feedback from on BPD

This receipt dataset sample includes high resolution photos of receipts captured by KYC verified users with their demographic info and is paired with OCR receipt data and customer feedback attached from restaurants including McDonald’s, Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, Jollibee, Pizza Hut, 7-Eleven, and more. Each data exchange was fueled by INSTAR tokens and includes a transaction with a record of consent and payment for verification on public blockchain.

How it works

Big Data Protocol IDO-10 drops today, Thurs July 15 @ 9a US Eastern / 1p UTC. and includes point-of-sale data from receipts & OCR feedback. Visit the BDP Marketplace at for more information.
