The main driving point of this initiative is to simplify the process of submitting an application to numerous companies that deal with cryptocurrency and/or blockchain platform. So instead of going from one office to another, ProofOfWork decided to design an HR platform that includes key players on the market and that are always interested in acquiring a qualified specialist as quickly as possible. So, any person can visit the project's website, fill out a Google Form and upon finalization the application will automatically be distributed among the members of the initiative.

Other HR projects related to blockchain platform and cryptocurrency include Enterprise Ethereum Alliance with over 200 members that aims to address Ethereum's scalability and confidentiality issues, and R3 Blockchain Consortium's legal centre that is supposed to train lawyers specifically in the area of crypto and blockchain.
