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.
Enroll in Braintrust Academy, a free learning tool for the Braintrust community. This course covers 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.
In the past, web2 gig economy marketplaces have had to be extractive—imposing higher take-rates and lower payouts seemed to be the only way to stay in business. Many of them still struggle to be profitable.
