EchoLink (EchoLink.info), a blockchain-based credentials verification service working with top institutions such as UC Berkeley, has just announced its technical partnership with the Open Network For Smart Economy NEO (neo.org) and the Ontology Trust Network (ont.io).

EchoLink is a blockchain based system that provides verified education, skill, and work experience information. Taking advantage of blockchain technology’s immutability and time stamp functionality, EchoLink provides users with trusted information regarding a job candidate’s education, skill, and work experience. EchoLink provides savings to recruiters in time and financial resources. The EchoLink system can be also be used for additional industries, such as banking, finance, general notary service.

NEO is a non-profit community-based blockchain project that utilizes blockchain technology and digital identity to digitize assets, to automate the management of digital assets using smart contracts, and to realize a “smart economy” with a distributed network.

Ontology incorporates multiple trust types in an integrated protocol system with various blockchains and databases. Multi-source identities and multi-source data exchange protocols have been implemented into the network, building a distributed trust system that is cross-chain, cross-industry, cross-system, cross-application, and cross-device.

EchoLink founder Steve Chen believes that collaboration between EchoLink, NEO, and Ontology will be incredibly beneficial all parties. NEO was founded in 2014 and was real-time open source on GitHub in June 2015. Since its inception, the NEO team has experienced the upsurge and boom of the blockchain industry and the frenzy and cooling of the digital money market. NEO believes technology drives progress and together we can create the future. Motivated by this, NEO has been created to shift our traditional economy into the new era of the “Smart Economy”.

Together, EchoLink, NEO, and Ontology aim to bring real-world applications with improvements in efficiency both in time and financial resources to businesses worldwide in their recruiting process.
