everyone, everywhere should have a right to a personal data account
The HAT Economic Model
Be a HAT Issuer or Merchant
HAT Merchants are organisations that acquire or inquire HAT data for their application or website, either to give recommendations, or to personalise their offering. HAT Merchants pay for data transactions whenever they acquire or inquire data from HAT owners.
HAT issuers are organisations that use HATDeX platform to issue HAT Microservers as a “personal data account” to their customers and profit from data transactions when the HATs they issue transact with HAT Merchants. Issuers are usually large organisations within a particular sector that have a large customer base and want to benefit from the data they hold of their customers by enabling their own customers to re-use and re-share their data. Issuers “franchise” the HATDeX platform to get the benefit of advanced technology, data governance and revenues that are fully scalable while ensuring their end-users data rights are preserved.
