Chinapex Launching APEX on NEO
Chinapex is working on the NEO platform and will launch its new B2C decentralized platform. APEX is a platform that allows consumers to maintain control of their data and who can use it. The value of the data comes back to the consumers who can later receive profit on their data usage in form of rewards.
That will result in an engagement between users and brands. This is beneficial for businesses because they provide high quality data that is not possible through third party data providers.
“In order to build the ecosystem, APEX will provide an SDK that will enable brands to integrate the data into their own applications and the NEXUS APEX Module API, allowing enterprise partners to embed particular capabilities surrounding APEX transaction management within their own application or platform.”
