Blockchain professional network SpringRole has closed a $1.3 million private funding from its early investors like AlphaBlock Investments, DNA (Brock Pierce and Scott Walker’s Blockchain investment and consulting firm), Isaac Lee’s BlockWater, and Wavemaker Genesis.
Founded and led by Kartik Mandaville, SpringRole, is a Science Blockchain portfolio company, which is building a 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.
When a user signs up on SpringRole, he or she can import or add their profile to the platform. This generally includes their work experience, educational experience and skill sets. Each of these claims once listed on the platform are verified by the concerned people or organisations. For work experience and educational qualifications, the universities and companies concerned verify details and attest the claim with the protocol on the blockchain. This is a one time verification and can be used whenever needed.
On SpringRole, the skill reputation is crowdsourced and depends on the people who endorse based on the skill sets. Skill endorsements are weighed according to the skill level of the person endorsing and endorsements need to be accepted by the sender and the receiver before it counts.
Whenever people in the user's network earn rewards on SpringRole, the user also gains a percentage of it along with the other users and organisations who have attested for that person.
It also recently announced product partnerships with WorkCoin, a Blockchain-based platform for freelancers with a focus on transparency, and Bloom, a Blockchain-based credit scoring platform.
