Blockchain Is Now Aiming to Disrupt Professional Social Networks

Blockchain Is Now Aiming to Disrupt Professional Social Networks http://cryptocurry.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Blockchain-To-Boost-The-Peer-To-Peer-Rental-Business.jpg

beBee is going to bet on Blockchain to disrupt professional networking. Blockchain is still in its early stages, and new cryptotechnology applications and advancements are regularly occurring. We expect big changes over the next few years, as over billions have been invested into this tech by venture capitalists.

A dream team is launching an ICO for developing a protocol www.profede.com


beBee will be the first platform to adopt profede's protocol.

Professionals typically have their profiles on Linkedin, as well as other professional social networks and job portals.

Thanks to blockchain technology and Profede's protocol:

● Professionals will be able to control their own data: They decide who can access their data and which parts of it.

● Professionals will get compensated in tokens for the exchange of their data.

● Professionals set their own price and therefore will feel fairly compensated every time a business gets in touch with them.

● Professionals have a portable professional profile and reputation. They will not need to rely on a centralized platform.

We are really excited about the next beBee using this protocol !!

Professional data and databases are valuable to companies looking to recruit, social sell,  in search of talent, and services. Companies and recruiters and LINKEDIN are making millions from professionals data. Blockchain technology has the power to change how it works today. www.profede.com

Tremendous potential!

Nowadays, professionals have completely lost control of their data. Professional networks and job portals, such as Linkedin and Xing, sell their data to anyone who wants to pay for it. Professionals are not only continuously bothered, but never receive a compensation for it. Furthermore the prevailing system is not good for businesses either: they make investments without being sure of having a return on investment. The current model makes it almost impossible to gain access to highly qualified professionals and, on top of that, the success rate is rather low.

On our ideal platform we should give the power back to the user. Professionals should control their profile, decide who has access to their data and are paid each time businesses or other professionals use their data for any purpose. We want to create technology that allows professionals to easily store and manage their profiles, that are accessible by third parties.

The future beBee will allow businesses to make appropriate payments for a professional's data regardless of the organization in which that person's information is located. Intermediaries will be eliminated and interactions will be facilitated by the network itself. Instead of paying any middleman, businesses automatically make customized offers directly to professionals based on their reputation and profiles through a decentralized platform.

Unfortunately, Javier 🐝 beBee, I did not find the cited article to be of much help in answering my questions. To wit:

#1: More User Control Over Data

PLF: I have control over my data now. The only data I post on social media platforms is data I want to be publicly available. There is, of course, data available on the web that is personal and which I did not post there, but I can't do anything about that -- and neither can Profede.

#2: Earn Tokens From Exchanging Data

PLF: Tokens are gamified rewards with no intrinsic value. There is no guarantee that these tokens will ever have any underlying value. Profede is not guaranteeing to buy them from me at a fixed rate in fiat currency.

#3: Portable Professional Profile and Reputation

PLF: I don't now rely strictly on a centralized platform to contain my professional data. I maintain my own websites, and more data is available on my professional history than I would ever want to share by simply searching "phil friedman yacht".

#4: Greater Efficiency

PLF: Remains to be demonstrated how this will happen.

#5: Reputation Ratings

PLF: To my mind, this is a retrograde move that works to centralize reputation management. And it runs the danger that it will be gamed by those seeking to control and restrict entry into a given field. Leave reputation "rating" to the potential clients and customers who can make their judgments based on letters of recommendation and talking to former clients of the professional involved.

#6: The Perfect 'Engine' To Make Money -- Earning tokens is a very new and trendy topic at the moment in the industry. It’s the age of cryptocurrency and what better way than to simply join Profede’s platform.

PLF: Remains to be demonstrated. Investing in tokens is like parimutuel betting; it's a zero-sum game, in which some will win at the expense of others who will lose.

#7: Compatibility -- Apps can develop value-added services and business models to fuel and ease the decentralized professional ecosystem.

PLF: I don't see how the situation will be different from the way it is now.

#8: A New Income Source For Apps -- The use of Profede for apps has an advantage of gaining additional income from tokens obtained every time a business contacts one of their users.

PLF: Until the underlying value of the tokens is demonstrated (until they become negotiable for spendable currency or can be spent on goods and services, they cannot be considered income.

There may, indeed, be answers to my admittedly naive questions, including those below, but as yet I haven't found them. Thanks and cheers! (cc: @Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SA)

Putting the money back in peoples pockets for their own data will literally help balance out the rich-poor divide.
