Ocean Protocol is introducing Ocean Market, a platform for buying and selling access to data. Building the amazon.com of data means keeping mainstream users in mind, which is why the Ocean team decided to build with Portis. In this article, Manan Patel, Growth Accelerator for Ocean, shares their vision with us.

Ocean Market integrates Portis for simple datatokens management.
