How to Improve Labor Contracts with Blockchain?

Learn about the advantages that Grain provides to both employers and employees
14 February 2018   129

GRAIN processes labor contracts on the blockchain and provides an instant payment mechanism for compensating workers.

GRAIN reinvents the way we work, and lets workers share in the success of the platform.

The GRAIN blockchain simplifies labor contracts by processing the work agreement through a smart contract. At the same time, the ecosystem introduces a compliant, prompt and fair payment mechanism, all while maintaining full security. The third and final part is the introduction of a digital savings account for workers who are being contracted through the system, which can also be used to pay into pension or for shorter-term needs.

To provide a viable solution for work agreements around the world, GRAIN will be flexible enough to comply with any regulations related to labor. To protect both sides of the transaction, GRAIN’s protocol also contains a special mechanism for handling the potential volatility of cryptocurrency.

Using the GRAIN blockchain opens up possibilities for staffing agencies, payrollers, HR system developers, accounting software and many others. It allows organizations to utilize objectively measurable and transparent labor contracts while substantially lowering overhead costs of work agreements.

In short, GRAIN provides the 100-billion-euro payroll industry (as determined by the annual reports for the top twenty companies) with a transparent, secure and democratic ecosystem for labor by upgrading the existing system to one based on the sharing principle.

Workers receive a direct bonus with every transaction. And as the value of Grain grows over time, the liquidity insurance mechanism collects a profit that gets distributed to everyone.

How Grain works?

  1. Agreement details are logged on a smart contract.
    1. Details about the parties involved, the work to be done and the compensation.
  2. Work is delivered and consensus is reached.
    1. After the job is done, both parties sign off and the contract is settled.
  3. Instant payment from company to worker.
    1. Funds instantly get transferred to the worker.


These are the core elements that fuel better work agreements:

Let's figure out, what are the advantages of Grain platform.

  • Slash the cost of labor

    • No more unfavorable exchange rates or transaction fees that can end up costing 5% of the transaction.
  • Get rewarded for processing work agreements
    • With every transaction, transaction partners receive 50% of the fee that is charged to the users.
  • A seamless back office solution for processing work agreements
    • The Grain protocol does the heavy lifting of registering, storing and settling agreements automatically.
  • Send expensive payment processing solutions to the sidelines
    • The Grain protocol instantly transfers funds to the worker. So third party payment processing solutions are no longer needed.
  • Share in the success of a growing Grain economy
    • Workers receive a direct bonus with every transaction. And as the value of Grain grows over time, the liquidity insurance mechanism collects a profit that gets distributed to everyone.
  • Stop cash flow issues due to late payments
    • By triggering an instant payment after the work has been delivered, contractors can sleep peacefully knowing they’ll get their money when it’s due.
  • Eliminating the risk of not getting paid
