DREAM and R_Block Join Hands, Aim For Secure Identity Through Blockchain
Recently, DREAM and R_Block agreed to share identity and reputation data to in pursuit of the shared goal of creating the decentralized identity. The teams have the combined goal of pushing forward open and standardized reputation systems.
Both the companies were brought together through long long-term open source developer and mutual advisor Fabian Vogelsteller, author of Ethereum’s Mist browser and the Ethereum Wallet. Working with Vitalik Buterin he proposed the ERC20 token standard, and identity standard ERC725.
On this recent collaboration, Vogelsteller added:
“I wholeheartedly encourage collaboration within the community and the different platforms. Open identity and reputation systems are essential to give back control to the user, increase trust and transparency for everybody. Users should be able to take their data everywhere, and outlive any platform.”
Through this partnership, users of R_Block will be able to take their proven and validated professional credentials, such as work references, validated skills and university records onto the DREAM ecosystem to demonstrate their viability. Advisors and freelancers working through DREAM will be able to take their achievements to R_Block for validation and so create a blockchain-based and portable CV.
Luke Shiply, RBlock’s Co-Founder said: “With visions for the future of work and decentralized identity that align, it’s a natural partnership for us, both companies believe freelancers should retain complete ownership of their reputation and work identity. We see DREAM as a positive contribution to the community. Like us, DREAM believes in open systems, eradicating silos and providing free-flowing information. Together we can really help bring about the decentralized identity.”
To these comments, Richard Foster, DREAM’s CEO added,
“We have attracted a deep pool of highly-vetted, experienced blockchain experts on to our DREAM platform who have worked on thousands of projects worldwide. Thanks to this partnership we can bring trust and credibility to every team hire – the client can see exactly who they are working with and trust in their work from day one, and freelancers can build their reputation with every project.”
R_Block uses peer-to-peer proofs and work references to collect skills data and turn proven work histories into a blockchain based CV that belongs to the user, not a third party platform.
DREAM is underpinned by open blockchain reputation system and uses AI to scope projects and bring together teams of freelancers to work on blockchain initiatives across every sector.
