Blockchain, Crypto, and Web3

Learn the very basics of Blockchain and crypto, and how Braintrust is creating a user-owned talent network uniquely enabled by a Blockchain token.

Blockchain, Crypto, and Braintrust

Braintrust is built on the Ethereum blockchain.
Braintrust uses blockchain technology to transparently distribute control of its network to the community members who contribute to building it. By distributing control globally based on user contributions (like referring talent, vetting talent, and referring clients), Braintrust’s blockchain-powered model aligns the incentives of the network itself with the people building it, rather than relying on a centralized platform that would otherwise extract disproportionate value in the form of high fees from its knowledge workers.
Not only does this put more control in the hands of the community, it helps grow the network rapidly.
