A decentralized
ecosystem for Language AI

Language-based applications are poised to explode


of all searches will be voice by 2020 (Voice Search)


increase in share of wallet via voice assistant by 2020 (Voice Commerce)

1 billion

voice enabled devices by 2021 (IoT)


of enterprises will spend more on conversational bots than mobile apps by 2021 (Enterprise)

Third-party developer
ecosystems are stagnant


Smartphone penetration (%)

Smart speaker penetration (%)

Number of Apps in Apple App Store

Number of Alexa Skills

Despite robust smart speaker sales that are tracking smartphone adoption, the third party ecosystem for voice apps remains stagnant.

Closed platforms are killing innovation

Language AI requires large datasets of processed language data to train AI models. Such data is mostly hoarded by large tech companies.

Without datasets and models, innovators are not able fully utilize Language AI to build great products and services.


Enabling Broad-based Innovation through Decentralization

Problem 1

Open, Crowdsourced Data

Pools of crowdsourced data to enable broad-based experimentation and development

Problem 2

Dataset and NLP Model Marketplace

Rapid creation of labeled datasets and trained models through a marketplace of dataset and trained AI model providers

Problem 3

Voice Authentication

Voice-based fingerprints that can be linked to self-sovereign IDs to authenticate and log in users via voice and verify voice data ownership

Problem 4

Payments and Monetization

Native token to monetize data, models and voice-based dApps and pay out the entire value chain

Data crowdsourcing apps

Through our Morecoin mobile app, users can contribute data, earn LANG tokens and generate a Voice ID.

Developers and enterprises can use the MC Business app to crowdsource and purchase datasets.
