The Problem

Internet giants come across as the friendliest companies, always doing everything for us - free search, free mail, free chat. Always on the edge of innovation. Know how they get there? You! Every time you search or click on an ad, they are paid hundreds if not THOUSANDS of dollars from the companies behind the ad. And depending on where you live, the price tag could get even higher. Why should you do all the work and they reap all the benefits? It’s time to take back the Internet and make it ours.

The Solution

BitClave is the next generation of data privacy. We believe that your data is your own, and that you should have control over who can use it- and how. We're building a decentralized search engine that helps you truly find what you're looking for and get compensated for your data directly from the retailers you're interested in, making third-party advertising networks unnecessary and irrelevant ads a thing of the past. BitClave is powered by blockchain, the world's most private and secure database, so you can rest assured your data is protected. And unlike the advertising middlemen, we don't make money off of your data.

You Make the Money

Not "THEM" - Instead of the ad companies getting paid by retailers for your data, you get handsomely compensated - and we’re not talking chump change - we’re talking hundreds of dollars per offer...

Crypto for the Masses

Finally get into the cryptocurrency game - CAT is a great place to start - you earn it with the data you share rather than buying it and you CATs can be traded as any other cryptocurrency

Private Data

Anything you search for or click on is only your business. If a business wants your business, they need to pay for this data

Don't Search - Find!

Find things that matter and are truly meaningful - not just offers that have paid for top billing

Time to a new car?

You've put in the time and now you're ready to cash in on a sweet ride. You go to the BitClave app, search for the car of your dreams and opt in to share your data with certain dealers. They, in turn, can make you an offer you can't refuse. Whether you take the offer or not - you'll get CAT Cash either way from all dealerships that made you an offer

BitClave wants to 'decentralize' search, let users profit from their own data

The company's goal is to enable a "decentralized" form of online search. Instead of running a search via Google and letting Google intermediate (give your data to advertisers and pitch you appropriate ads), for example, you could search via BitClave and receive payment for the data you're willing to share in exchange for targeted ads.
