the vision

The most resilient, uncensorable, and accessible systems are user-owned, decentralized, and autonomous. That’s why TalentLayer was built as a open-source low-level protocol for many applications to leverage; like SMTP for email.

Each year more and more workers find jobs on digital platforms. The "great unbundling" is happening fast - big generalized platforms are being overtaken by many niche platforms that serve their user's unique needs better. TalentLayer is empowering this next generation of marketplaces to transform the way people work.

TalentLayer harnesses the power of blockchain to allow network effects sharing - helping you bootstrap and focus on building user-friendly marketplaces that serve everyone; from crypto-native audiences to mainstream workers.

I didn’t think I’d be able to build the marketplace I’m able to build now in such a short time. The use of TL ensures that my marketplace will have access to a global pool of talent and services which makes it easier to focus on building core features.
