LinkedIn-On-Blockchain startup SpringRole partners with AmaZix

Blockchain advisory firm AmaZix has deepened its partnership with employee verification specialist SpringRole.

SpringRole is a decentralised professional network built on the blockchain which lets users reliably verify their professional profiles online and provide skill validation through attestation from educational institutions, employers, colleagues, and managers. Users are able to maintain complete ownership of their data thanks to blockchain technology and advanced cryptography. The full SpringRole platform is set for launch in Q2 2019, with extensive features.

Kenneth Berthelsen, CMO of AmaZix, said that identity verification, skill evaluation, and background attestations are vital for a decentralised business such as AmaZix, which employs talent from all over the globe. AmaZix already provides advisory and community management services to SpringRole and believes this reciprocal partnership will help to propel both businesses forward.

He said: “Security, especially when dealing with the digital version of your professional persona, is of utmost importance. SpringRole places trust in blockchain technology, which is all about secure design: immutable, tamper-proof and democratic. Having worked closely with SpringRole, we are excited to use the service we have helped to build and look forward to the benefits it will bring our employees.”

SpringRole founder Kartik Mandaville commented: “We are delighted to take our partnership with AmaZix to the next level, as they adopt the SpringRole protocol. SpringRole promotes trust between people and companies, and we would not have been able to develop our service without the expertise of AmaZix. This new phase of our partnership will help the further development of the SpringRole service, as the full platform launches later this year.”
