Frequently Asked Questions

  • Streamr provides the real-time data infrastructure of the decentralised web (Web3). Streamr technology is a core service layer which implements a vendor-neutral, real-time publish/subscribe protocol for data transmission. The data travels via a global peer-to-peer network, which is scalable, robust and permissionless.

    The technology works in tandem with companion blockchains - currently Ethereum, Gnosis, and Polygon - which are used for identity, security, and payments.

  • As our connected world creates and consumes more and more data, it has not been possible to connect the billions of devices worldwide with real-time data via a decentralised network. Meanwhile, today's existing centralised services are subject to a single point of failure and vendor lock in.

    Streamr solves these problems by delivering a low latency and secure decentralised broadcast messaging protocol - via a peer to peer (P2P) network architecture. Thanks to this P2P architecture - the network is fault tolerant, resilient to malicious attacks and scales in line with the growth of the network - for scalable many to many real time data pipelines.

  • The Streamr project was started in 2017 by Henri Pihkala, Nikke Nylund, Risto Karjalainen and Michael Malka.

  • Streamr is a distributed open-source software project with around 30 key contributors around the world, including both companies and individuals.

    Key decisions in the project are made via governance voting using DATA tokens.

  • We publish updates about Streamr, the ecosystem, node running, and other happenings from the project on the Streamr blog, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Telegram (announcements only), and Discord community.

    You can also sign up for our newsletter to receive important updates directly in your inbox.


Streamr 1.0 is coming!

The complete DATA tokenomics will be in released at the "Streamr 1.0" milestone. Streamr node operators will secure and relay data on streams associated to Sponsorships. Delegators delegate to Operators and earn a revenue share of the Operator's work in return.
