Vietnamese startup launches platform for hiring blockchain talents
Getdone is a platform that connects blockchain talents, who can work as full-time employees or freelancers, to global clients in blockchain industry.
This platform is the universal version of freelancerviet.vn, a leading freelancer platform in Vietnam. It lists 300,000 freelancers in various categories, with a focus on blockchain and AI technology.
Getdone provides innovative solutions based on a combination of the two emerging technologies to improve security and payment speed, transaction fees and reliability of talent profiles and overcome the language barrier.
In Vietnam, the number of job searches related to cryptocurrency and blockchain doubled in 2018. However, blockchain engineers and developers currently account for only 2-5 percent of the IT workforce, according to TopDev’s annual report last August.
Upwork’s newest quarterly index of the hottest skills in the U.S. freelance job market ranks blockchain first out of 20.
The shortage of blockchain developers continued in the fourth quarter of last year even as blockchain products doubled. The demand for employees in blockchain is so high that employers and clients need to find ways to work around a shortage.
For this reason, Getdone entered the market with the mission to be a part of the solution of hiring blockchain talent including engineers, developers, and others.
The smart contract on the Getdone platform cuts off third parties’ intermediary role to reduce commissions and ensure security and quick payment.
Besides, AI technology with self-recommendation function based on automatic data analysis will help connect clients and qualified job seekers.
AI also proposes an average budget for a project to help clients understand reference budgets when they need to hire blockchain talents, and an average rate per hour of work based on a candidate’s profile.
It will create a standard framework for the freelance job market, avoid devaluation and protect the benefits of both blockchain talents and clients.
The new-user-support tool will help new applicants find jobs more easily through the test system. A new talent who joins the site and gets a high-test score will still get a job despite having no previous work history on Getdone.
Getdone will provide a live language translation tool to break the language barrier and help talents work across the world. Getdone accepts payments in more than 20 cryptocurrencies and foreign currencies.
A hedging mechanism helps stabilize the value of cryptocurrencies used at Getdone. When choosing a talent, the company deposits a sum of money with the crypto token by the time talents complete their work within a few days to several months.
In 2018 freelancerviet won Ho Chi Minh City's Best Innovation Project award and the Asian Rice Bowl Startup Award in the Best AI and Machine Learning Application category from NEF (New Enterprises Foundation) and MaGIC (Malaysian Global Innovation & Creativity Center).
Getdone is also one of three Vietnamese representatives to beat thousands of competitors from across the world to qualify for the Elevator Pitch Competition, a global contest organized by the Hongkong Science and Technology Center.
