We bring Big Data to the edge! As a European cooperative we are developing a "Super App" named polyPod, enabling you to earn a digital income by sharing your computing power for data analysis. Crowdfunded by European citizens, as real shareholders influencing the project and participating in revenues. Become an investor and help build a sustainable, social and independent data economy for Europe.
The value of data increases dramatically. For 2025 the worth of the European data economy is estimated to be 634 Billion € – means roundabout 3 % of Europe's GDP. But it's not Europe participating – the winners are data oligarchs from the US. A system has been implemented collecting 85 % of useless data harming our privacy, the European economy and our environment, as every bit of data we store and analyse increases our carbon footprint.
With the polyPod we want to provide a "Super App" enabling users to share their unused computing power for privacy driven Big Data evaluations. Get a digital income and step by step all services from messenger to food delivery comfortably in one app. This time European citizens will be the winners of the dramatically growing data economy.
What is called crowdfunding or crowdinvesting today is based on a pretty old concept: Achieving goals works better together rather than doing it alone. This is the basic idea of every cooperative, where private citizens come together to empower themselves. But in contrast to crowdfunding projects, not just a few participate and have influence. In a cooperative fundamental decisions are made by all who are investing money, and revenues are shared.
Voting members of the cooperative who have subscribed for at least one share certificate with a value of € 5.
Annual payout yields are calculated from 1,000,000 active polyPod users.

"Even though I haven't had a lot of experience in my professional life, I am convinced that people work differently when they believe in what they are doing. This belief connects us at polypoly." - our intern Malik talks about his experience.
Thorsten Dittmar and Sabine Scheunert – Vice President Digital & IT Sales and Marketing, Mercedes-Benz Cars – were part of a panel at Mobile Ecosystem Forum. Together with Tim Green, Liz Brandt and Harrisson Tang, they talked about “The Whole is Greater than its Parts: The End-to-End Personal Data Economy". Check out the video on the MEF YouTube channel.
"My generation will be among the first to know what happens to the data we uploaded when we were thirteen, for example" - Malik, 19, tells us why younger people should start talking about data protection.
