Fysical is a decentralized location data market. It helps businesses and machines make better decisions by providing them with high quality data on how humans move through the physical world.
Fysical is a new type of data exchange that incentivizes the sharing of data on how humans move through the physical world; commuting to work, running errands, or traveling for business.
Today, critical decisions are made by analyzing data on how humans move through the physical world. This could be an urban planner tackling transportation problems, a hedge fund investor comparing foot traffic trends against sales, or an AI building a predictive model reliant on population movement. In all cases, the impact of these decisions relies on the fidelity of the underlying data.
Typically, this data is purchased from centralized data exchanges that are expensive, inefficient, and lack transparency. As the pace of innovation accelerates, businesses and machines need more insight into the the accuracy and validity of data to effectively make decisions.
Fysical replaces today's centralized data exchanges with a decentralized alternative. It provides high fidelity data to support better decisions and solve problems, while maintaining transparency and trust for all parties.
BETTER DATA MEANS BETTER DECISIONS
What is Fysical?
Fysical is the infrastructure for the transparent and efficient exchange of location data; foot traffic sensor readings, store visit information, commute routes.
Fysical allows data suppliers to share and monetize their location data, while maintaining transparency, ownership, and control. At the same time, Fysical provides data buyers with the optimal way to access and validate data and its source. Fysical directly contrasts with today's closed systems, data brokers, and black boxes, and replaces them with a transparent peer-to-peer blockchain protocol.
For location data to provide value, it needs to be highly accurate, privacy compliant, and contain information about how the data was generated and from who it originated. Blockchains provide this, without the presence of a centralized authority, in a trustworthy and scalable way.
For data buyers, blockchains enable audit trails, facts about the origin of data, and therefore greater confidence in the integrity of data purchased.
For data suppliers, blockchains provide full transparency on data usage, clear ownership rights on data, and therefore greater trust in sharing data.

How Fysical Works
Data suppliers contribute data to Fysical
Anyone can supply data to Fysical. We provide software tools for data suppliers, such as a mobile SDK, that make it easy to securely share data to the protocol.
Data is encrypted and stored.
All data contributions have reference data that is stored in an encrypted manner on the blockchain and can only be accessed with the proper decryption key controlled by the data supplier.
Data buyers can search for and license data
Any business, individual, or machine can freely query Fysical to buy data. Data buyers can see an audit trail of all data contributed to the protocol that clearly identifies the true source of the data. We also supply tools for data buyers, like an API, that make it easy to buy high-quality data.
Data suppliers are paid for data via the FYSICAL token.
Data buyers pay data suppliers in FYSICAL (FYS) tokens. All transactions are executed using the Ethereum blockchain.
We incentivize the sharing and monetization of high-quality human movement data through FYSICAL (FYS), a cryptographic token on the Ethereum blockchain.
