We spend years building our online presence on platforms like LinkedIn, Upwork, Glassdoor in the form of work experiences, connections, recommendations, client testimonials, and project portfolios.
Despite being the creators of our professional assets, our hard-earned online presence is confined to that particular platform or platforms, and due to the imposed restrictions it is not possible to transfer this data and value anywhere else. What’s more, companies who monopolize our data make billions of dollars from it.
Our data should not be controlled or owned by anybody else, but us.
Same vision shares dock.io, a blockchain, Ethereum-based project focused on providing a more open and connected Internet where users truly own their data.
Dock.io is not a product or application, as the team explains, but an open decentralized data exchange protocol which makes it possible to transfer professional data from app to app at will.
The protocol enables seamless interconnectivity of all user data. For example, a user updating their primary email address on dock.io will instantly push that update to all other apps informing about the change.
The startup has seen a great progress so far. The team has raised $12 million through the presale, and combined with a moderate max cap target, that gives Dock.io a very high likelihood of reaching the $20 million target.
Dock.io is being partly developed by the Remote.com team.
The project enjoys one of the largest and fastest growing communities in crypto. There are over 15 million users in their partner network which includes, besides Remote.com, FundRequest, and SmartRecruiters with more partners expected to join in future.
This big growth is partly thanks to smart efforts incentivizing users to engage with the platform. The application created to this end, “Earn” (on app.dock.io platform), rewards users for contributing to the network with DOCK tokens. Currently, users can earn tokens for inviting friends to the network, which helps with early network growth.
There are no platform fees. The company does not have a revenue model and is funded via the token sale and the 10% reserve for future use. The company says they made this decision to avoid another project forking theirs and removing fees to create competition against their project.
The public token sale will begin on February 21.
However, the following locations will not be able to participate due to the legalities: China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the USA. Anyone located in restricted locations can still continue to use the App (app.dock.io) to earn free tokens.
