Introducing Chia DataLayer™

A Trusted Way for Enterprises to Share Data

Preserve data ownership, while enabling transparency and accountability

Chia Network’s DataLayer™ feature leverages our extremely secure, sustainable and compliant blockchain to enable data reporting for enterprises in a transparent, durable, and auditable way. DataLayer™ enables trusted data sharing across parties to achieve common business outcomes, even when enterprises, institutions, and governments all have different approaches to managing data.

Per Gartner: “Organizations that promote data sharing will outperform their peers on most business value metrics. Yet, at the same time, Gartner predicts that through 2022, less than 5% of data-sharing programs will correctly identify trusted data and locate trusted data sources.”

Here’s how DataLayer™ can help improve this statistic:

  • Transparency: Data can only be updated by its owner. All updates are visible and unchangeable on the blockchain, and can be confirmed by anyone with read access.
  • Auditability: The feature enables users to review the permanent history changes to data tables.
  • Durability: Data survives as long as anyone has a copy of it—original publisher or not. 
  • Permissioned: Access to the data can be permissioned only to approved viewers.
  • Smart Contracting: Data can be presented and validated in on-chain smart contracts.

Real-World Use Cases

The Climate Action Data Trust—founded by the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA), The World Bank and the Singapore government—uses the Chia blockchain and DataLayer™ to bring together decentralized carbon crediting records to guard against double counting, increase trust in carbon data and enhance climate ambition.

Learn how to leverage DataLayer™ within your database infrastructure

We’re excited to brainstorm with you about how to use DataLayer™ for your needs.

  • DataLayer™ is a powerful tool for auditing, especially within a consortium without a trusted central reporter or where everyone self-reports (i.e. The Climate Action Data Trust). It also works well at enabling commerce for anyone with a controlled data set as the basis for transactions (i.e. controlling an owner registrar of vehicles or real estate.)
