Tapmydata receives a grant from Polygon to reward users for their data
–– 4 Feb 2022
When we launched Tapmydata V2 in December 2021, our first goal was to make sure that minting of the Glitch NFT and transactions within the app are fast and cost-effective. We believe Polygon is a great choice for delivering a fast, scalable and sustainable service for our users.
We are so grateful to have been supported by Polygon Network! The funds will help us take the next step in our mission: giving people control and earning over their data.
What it means for the Tapmydata community
With the grant from Polygon, we can continue to push forward with innovation and development. And you, our community, will have an opportunity to earn from your time and data.
Here’s a quick guide on how you can start getting the most out of your data with our app:
- Download Tapmydata app on the App Store or Play Market
- Connect your MetaMask wallet with the app
- Mint your Glitch NFT. Your Glitch will represent you in the Tapmydata data ecosystem. Minting your Glitch costs 5 MATIC and you will earn the equivalent value of TAP in return.
- You’re all set up. Now join the data channels and get rewards once a month. Nice and easy!
Our team is now working hard to build advanced features of its privacy protocol, as well as to onboard as many partners on the platform as possible. In the near future, we will add a Polygon data channel within the Tapmydata app. After joining the channel, users can earn MATIC tokens.
We will be joining an AMA session with Polygon soon to discuss what’s coming up next for Tapmydata as well as our further work with Polygon. It’s going to be interesting so join our Twitter and Telegram channels because you don’t want to miss out! We will keep everyone updated on the details as soon as we know more.
We are pleased to be supported by the Polygon team and we’re working hard to develop a platform that has real utility on this network. The Polygon platform offers a fast, scalable, energy-efficient, and affordable solution for our project and we are excited to work with the Polygon community and are grateful for their trust.
