JLINC lets people control how their data is used—after they share it.


Information Sharing Agreements written in JSON, are called “data contracts”.

Information Sharing Agreements in the universal web language JSON, are called “link contracts”.

Data-contracts are digitally signed using standard public-key cryptography.


Public-keys are registered in a decentralized system.

Registering a JLINC account currently writes a public key on the Stellar Ledger.


The Stellar Consensus Protocol is much faster and does not require the wasteful "mining" used by the Bitcoin blockchain.


Information Sharing Agreements written as data contracts in JSON-LD are both human and machine-readable.


Once a participant sets their preferences, most of the activity is automated by their agent running in the background.


Each data transaction is signed by all parties and recorded on a ledger. This forms the basis for assurance, validation, authentication, and reputation.


A data contract can be hosted at any URL. This allows trusted organizations to negotiate standard terms used by many individuals and companies.


A compact “fingerprint” of data content, called a “hash” is included along with the signatures and timestamp as an entry on a ledger.

The JLINC protocol is built on open standards and will be supported as an open standard protocol.
