About Project

Algebraix Data® is creating a blockchain-based platform that will empower individuals to securely store and monetize their personal data. The first application will be a secure, permission-based advertising network where individuals will be paid in the new ALX cryptocurrency to view advertisements. The network will be powered by the company’s unique, patented Data Algebra technology.
Algebraix Data will bring cryptocurrency mainstream, building its audience by first focusing on the entertainment vertical. Individuals will be delighted to earn ALX coin by watching movie trailers and TV trailers, playing games, and listening to music. Audience growth will attract advertisers in all vertical categories. The company will incentivize third-party developers with ALX-based royalties to build apps for the platform such as classified ads, dating, etc. This will enrich the users’ environment, further enabling individuals to monetize their secure personal data.
