UBDI (short for Universal Basic Data Income) is reinventing financial and market research by empowering individuals to monetize aggregated, anonymized insights from their data.


  • Provides aggregated, anonymized historical and real-time data points combined with qualitative data from paid users
  • Reaches the perfect audience with PrivateMatch Technology
  • Represents the gold standard of GDPR/CCPA compliance

Why it’s great
Data and privacy can work together for richer insights when you empower the individual with their own data.
