# What is the Murmurations Protocol?

The Murmurations Protocol, which we also just call Murmurations, is a standardised, open source set of rules designed to enable decentrlaised, interoperable, data sharing and aggregation. Murmurations uses existing standards including JSON-Schema (opens new window), Schema.org (opens new window), and RSS (opens new window) to help people, projects and organisations discover each other and share data across platforms and between networks. The ultimate aim of Murmurations is to accelerate the global transition to the regenerative economy (opens new window).
