Profede Market Context

In the Profede there are three types of participants: ​professionals who post their public data and receive tokens in exchange of releasing their private data; ​businesses that buy professional’s private and contact data; and ​apps who are third parties that create software to use the protocol. In the most basic form, only the first participant, the professional, is needed. The most common role of a professional is as a provider of information to the network and each professional can develop the tools needed to access Profede’s blockchain. But a professional can also act as a buyer of information; in this case the professional is assumed to be a business. The second participant, the business, comes to the network to search for professionals as potential candidates or to offer positions or as potential new customers. The business can act only as a buyer of information and, each business, can develop the tools needed to access Profede’s blockchain.

The above diagram represents how professionals and businesses can interact in the Profede Professional Protocol without any “intermediaries”. 1) A business pays to contact a professional; 2) The professional authorizes to send the contact data; 3) The business receives the contact data; 4) The professional receives tokens. The third participant, the app, creates software to help both, professionals and businesses, to access Profede’s blockchain. The app provides off-chain search capabilities, data analytics, professionals validation and other value added services. An app always acts as an intermediary and cannot buy or sell information for themself.

The PATO Token

The information added by professionals to the network is very valuable to companies looking for candidates and for professionals with whom to engage in new business opportunities. Professionals who make their private data -including their contact detailsavailable to companies interested in hiring them will be rewarded. Rewards will come in the form of tokens, called Professional Activity TOken (PATO), and it will be both professionals and businesses who have control of this currency. In addition to functioning as a reward system to unblock professionals’ private data, PATOs can be exchanged for other services offered by various organizations using the protocol, such as recruitment services for companies, data analysis services and many others. These PATO tokens will make it easier for the recruiting and social selling markets to shift from being in the main social networks and job portals possession to being in the hands of professionals and businesses themselves.
