peaq, the renowned Web3 network fueling the Economy of Things (EoT), has taken a significant stride in the fitness and health tracker market through its partnership with Brainstem Digital Health. Brainstem, a decentralized platform specializing in health data aggregation from wearable devices, is set to equip its devices with self-sovereign peaq IDs, allowing users to sign their data for authentication purposes.
The collaboration between peaq and Brainstem aims to revolutionize health data distribution, enabling communities to monetize their anonymized health data while actively contributing to research focused on enhancing health and wellness through the decentralized physical infrastructure network (DePIN) on peaq.
Market.us projections reveal that the wearable health and fitness tracker market is on a meteoric rise, expected to reach $187.2 billion by 2032. As Artificial Intelligence (AI) transforms healthcare, the value of health data collected from wearables has become increasingly vital. However, conventional Web2 healthtech solutions have exhibited vulnerabilities to data breaches, raising concerns over user privacy.
Brainstem seeks to redefine the industry by introducing Web3 data handling into the health and fitness tracker market, prioritizing privacy preservation and secure data collection practices. Embracing the DePIN model, Brainstem incentivizes real-world hardware through tokens to gather critical health metrics, such as heart rate, movement, and blood pressure. Users have the option to share their anonymized data on the global DePIN, earning crypto rewards while providing valuable insights to researchers focused on well-being.
Through its integration with peaq, Brainstem gains access to peaq’s Web3 tools and functionalities, offering a seamless and secure data-sharing experience. Decentralized peaq IDs will be incorporated into wearables within the Brainstem DePIN, ensuring data authenticity and user ownership. Moreover, this integration empowers users to share and monetize their data on peaq’s Gaia-X data marketplace, contributing further to Europe’s digital sovereignty and privacy initiatives.
Max Campbell, Co-founder of Brainstem, emphasized the significance of privacy and control over health data, highlighting their paradigm-shifting tool that empowers individuals with full ownership and authority over their data. The DePIN focus and device-centric features and economics of peaq provide an ideal foundation for Brainstem’s project, facilitating rapid growth and scaling.
Till Wendler, Co-founder of peaq, expressed enthusiasm for Brainstem joining the peaq ecosystem and their potential to add value to the community. He stressed the importance of high-quality and privacy-compliant data for AI’s impact on health and wellness.
