SpringRole announces the first professional reputation network built on blockchain

Science Blockchain portfolio company SpringRole announced that it will be building the first professional reputation network powered by artificial intelligence and blockchain technology to eliminate fraud from user profiles. The network will give more weight to online professional reputation and will make it possible for people to be rewarded for their endorsements.

Because the network is built on blockchain and uses smart contracts, users are expected to be able to:

Verify work experience and education: Using blockchain as its foundation, the network will enable employers and educators to easily verify user profile information, which in turn will eliminate people falsifying information about their credentials and experience. The network’s ability to verify user legitimacy through its endorsement protocol is believed to be the first of its kind.

Give real meaning to endorsements: There will be a small cost associated with making an endorsement, and that cost will increase as people make more endorsements. This will encourage people to be selective when endorsing and in turn will make endorsements more meaningful. Because experience will be verified using blockchain technology, endorsements will also have real meaning. Endorsements from highly qualified people in relevant fields will carry more weight.

Reward endorsers: Through smart contracts, the network will reward endorsers when the people they’ve endorsed get paid or hired. Instead of companies paying what would normally be a finder’s fee to an individual recruiter, the money will be passed along to the endorsers.

Get endorsements outside of your network: Members of the network will can have their work reviewed by third-party professionals and will can receive endorsements if the professional feels it’s worthy. These endorsements will help those who don’t have networks built yet and will change the hiring process from “who you know” to “what you know.”

The network will adopt a decentralized cryptocurrency, the SPRING tokens, as the means of payment on the network. Rights to a limited number of SPRING tokens will be sold to certain qualified investors. These are separate from the INVITE tokens, which were previously distributed to SCI token holders and then later airdropped to every ETH wallet. The INVITE token allows people to claim their vanity profile URL on the network by visiting beta.springrole.com. This is the first blockchain-based network incubated by Science Blockchain company.
