How to Improve Labor Contracts with Blockchain?

Learn about the advantages that Grain provides to both employers and employees

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.

Eidoo to Release Gold Backed Stablecoin

New stablecoin is called Ekon and it will be possible to it for one gram of gold of 999 test
20 September 2018   252

The Swiss blockchain start-up Eidoo has joined the ranks of projects launching own stablecoins, announcing the creation of a stable coin tied to the price of gold.

Eidoo's stablecoin is called Ekon and is a token compatible with the ERC-20 standard, which will be available in a multi-currency purse and on a hybrid decentralized project exchange. It will be possible to exchange 1 Ekon for one gram of gold of 999 test, which is in a special storehouse. Reserves of gold will be audited every 90 days, moreover, to increase confidence in the token, the company promises to be able to watch gold vault via a video camera.

The profit from the purchase and sale of Ekon within the Eidoo ecosystem will be converted into a native EDO project token.

Despite the uniqueness of the offer of the Swiss start-up, not all experts agree with its usefulness, since the price of precious metal is not so stable. So, for the last six months it has fallen by almost $ 150, however it has grown by $ 25 since the end of August.

In October 2017, Eidoo raised $ 27.9 million in a token, and in April of this year received a license from the Swiss Financial Services Standards Supervision Authority (VQF) under the national financial regulator (FINMA).
