The Lydion Magazine is brought to you by The Data Economics Company (DECO), developers of the Lydion® DEOS Engine middleware platform. DECO enables companies and people to convert their data into valuable digital assets that can be utilized, shared, and transacted using secure, private Lydion Data Vaults and Data Economics Networks (DENETs).


The Lydion Magazine launched in 2021 to its audience of over 20,000 readers who are curious about how the combined power of distributed computing and digital assets are tackling the world’s “Big Problems.” With each edition of the Magazine, we seek to bring you stories from a variety of voices, technical and non-technical, with expertise in their fields and a knack for explaining complex topics to a broad audience. We want our readers to feel more informed, to have their imaginations sparked, and to renew (or rediscover) their sense of scientific curiosity.

We believe that topics at the bleeding edge of new technology—Web3, digital assets, data economics, blockchain, distributed computing, artificial intelligence—don’t need to be mysterious to be exciting. We’ll commit to being good storytellers if you’ll bring your inquisitiveness and your receptivity to new scientific possibilities.

Turning Earth Into Gold

Global consumers increasingly ask questions about the origins of goods they purchase and how those goods are produced. Are the practices sustainable? Organic? Regenerative? What assurances exist to verify that the product in hand is what it says on the label? Are producers treating their workers fairly and equitably?

In Turning Earth Into Gold, we feature experts in the field of regenerative agriculture exploring the many ways Data Economics can enable smallholder farmers in our global quest for climate mitigation.

Introduction to Data Economics: A Textbook

Data Economics is an emerging scientific discipline that explores the creation of useful and valuable products called Data Assets using digital data. Data Economics creates frameworks to sell, license and buy the “ownership of the utility” of data without losing control or ownership of the underlying datasets.

In the Introduction to Data Economics Edition, we lay out the basics of Data Economic science and discuss the exciting applications enabled by this new field of study.
