About Us

Liquidata was founded to be a marketplace for data. We wanted it to be cheaper and easier to access data. But we realized that the way data was being stored made it expensive to share, and without an order of magnitude reduction in friction, the market would never be liquid.

Thus, we set about building a data format that makes collaboration a first class citizen, ensuring creators and consumers of data can acquire, query, and update data, without writing any code. The result is Dolt.

Dolt is an open source database with Git-like semantics for version control and collaboration. DoltHub is a product that hosts Dolt repositories, which are collections of tables.

Liqiudata's mission is to make data move more efficiently. Our strategy is to get owners of data to adopt Dolt as a means for storage and sharing. Let us know if we can help.
