About Navigate

Data remains the most valuable commodity of our time and it is essential for building intelligent applications. Large language models (LLMS), content moderation algorithms, programmatic advertising, and advanced search capabilities all rely on high-quality data to function. But good data is hard to come by. And now, more than ever, organizations are harvesting this data from users to generate substantial value, offering minimal to no compensation in return.

Navigate is disrupting this trend by building a decentralized intelligence platform that rewards users for sourcing the data that intelligent applications require. We are creating a new kind of network where innovation is encouraged, creators are empowered, and earnings are distributed amongst its community of contributors.
