Human resources on the market of blockchain platform is a hot topic lately. Yesterday, on March 1 Coinbase announced its participation in ProofOfWork's job application initiative called Blockchain Common App.

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.

The largest American cryptocurrency company Coinbase announced the launch of an index fund, focused on accredited investors.

According to representatives of Coinbase, there is a "huge interest" in the cryptocurrency among investors who can invest in new assets from $ 250,000 to $ 20 million.

Coinbase Index Fund gives investors exposure to all assets listed on our exchange, weighted by market capitalization. As we announced yesterday, the fund will be rebalanced to include Ethereum Classic, and more assets when they are listed by Coinbase in the future.

At this stage, Coinbase Index Fund is only open to US-resident accredited investors. We’re working on launching more funds which are accessible to all investors and cover a broader range of digital assets.
