Business Case

LayerAI unlocks mass adoption by offering apps and users new ways to monetize and productize something that they already have: data. This presents a no-brainer choice for apps to easily join and onboard onto the ecosystem via LayerAI SDK as they can obtain new streams of income they never imagined.

Minimizing developer and user friction to onboard and offering valuable rewards is often seen as a sign of unsustainable practices - Terra’s Anchor Protocol, having attracted billions of TVL, contributed to eventual collapse. However, Terra never achieved a sustainable business model that LayerAI has implemented as an active contributor to the global data marketplace.

LayerAI is providing new value in three ways:

  • Apps onboard due to new cashflow from monetizing user data upon user consent

  • Users join due to #AItoEarn models where they can use the same apps, but get paid while doing so

  • Hundreds of businesses globally - in healthcare, insurance, finance, advertising, education, etc. - buy user data from native apps

Every sustainable ecosystem requires income sources, and only then can sustainable value be created for its community. LayerAI has diversified income funnels, making it not reliant on any particular cause and robust against volatility.

  1. Gas Transaction fees are a reliable and highly scalable form of ecosystem income. As a foundation for the decentralized AI economy, LayerAI is a high throughput and minimal cost network, making it the go-to platform for applications that want to cater the billions of AI customers.

  2. Core Apps Core Apps are developed by the Foundation to kickstart the ecosystem data economy. They also serve as a pillar for ecosystem income.

  3. LAI Data Market The crown jewel of the ecosystem: a platform for developers and companies to offer consented data to purchasers. The LAI Data Market has the potential to disrupt the global data trade in favor of the common man.

  4. Data Capsules The NFT that sets the golden standard for utility. Each Data Capsule carries the unique data imprint of its data miner. These are purchased either directly by end-point customers or acquired and then distributed by developers and companies.
