TL;DR What do you think of the idea of a decentralized job (DeJo)? If this already exists somewhere, I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
I’ve been frustrated with the job market lately. I’m highly qualified for my field, but I’ve recently moved to a new city and have very few contacts, and I’m slightly socially awkward. I’ve applied to tons of jobs and rarely get interviews (due to lack of networking) and if I do get an interview I’m not selected for the job (because of social awkwardness). I love crypto and everything it might promise for the future, and thought how could crypto improve the job market?
I’m thinking it could work a bit like the gig economy, mixed with crypto mining, mixed with FOSS governance structure. You can find a project you’re interested in, jump in and do some work, get paid in crypto (whole new meaning for ‘Proof of ‘Work’ lol), leave when you want. When work is needed in a particular sector, the value of the crypto paid out could increase so you’d get a fluid workforce that can quickly react to a changing economy.
I don’t know, just some ideas. What do you think?
