We are excited to announce that OCEAN is among the first tokens to be whitelisted on Bancor v2.1!

Ocean Protocol is a decentralized data exchange protocol that makes it easier for people to publish, auto-price, and sell their data. The recent release of Ocean V3 features datatokens, Ocean Market and IDOs (Initial Data Offerings).
