“Jobchain improves the relationship between employer and employee by making the hiring services more efficient.”
Since the creation of Bitcoin and Ethereum, a remarkable number of tools and possibilities have been created for developing a more transparent, dynamic, and evolved society. Daily interactions in society, such as hiring and being hired, and administering assets and finances, need a technology that can facilitate all such interactions in an easy, compliant and transparent way for employers and employees.
The Jobchain® project started in November 2019 with the vision to accelerate the adoption of cryptocurrency and use it as a mechanism to facilitate the creation of new ways of human and societal interaction using blockchain technology. The project was developed under the supervision of a set of experts and advisors from the United Nations (UN), International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Organization for Co-operation and Security in Europe (OSCE), and United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
The Jobchain® platform facilitates the accessibility and usability of blockchain technology by integrating financial, recruitment, and asset management services in one platform. It includes an app for Android, iOS, and the Web, allowing users to earn, buy, sell, transfer, store, and rent different sets of assets using cryptocurrencies to impact their customers’ lives positively.
The Silicon Review contacted Jose Bay, founder of Jobchain®, who spoke about how the platform is making a difference in this segment and plans to stay at the forefront. Below is an excerpt.
