SKILLBOARD

A decentralized, blockchain powered peer-to-peer platform
where you can monetize any skill and connect with likeminded people.




ABOUT

Skillboard aims to simplify the processes of offering and finding any online or offline skill by providing a decentralized platform which is regulated by smart contracts, where users can pay or get paid in SKILL tokens or fiat money. We believe that every person has unique skills that can be of value, and therefore, is a potential Skiller who can monetize his skills. Providing others the possibility to make use of these skills.

The platform will give individuals who don’t have access to a bank account, therefore being cut out from online commerce, the possibility to enter the commercial market. The only thing they will need is an account on the platform.

We strive for an open and shared economy, thus Skillboard is not solely focussed on additional income. We want to increase the access to knowledge and human interaction for anyone who is interested or feels socially isolated. Therefore, users can also find one another in an easy way for sharing or learning from each other’s interest, skills or knowledge.

FIND JOBS, SERVICES OR OTHER REQUESTS AND EARN MONEY

Skillboard lets you utilize your skills and earn income wherever you will go. Whether it can be done through the web or on the spot, Skillboard builds bridges between demand and supply.

SOCIALIZE WITH LIKE-MINDED PEOPLE

In an ever increasing digital world we tend to lose our focus on social interaction. While social interaction is one of the primary needs for mankind. So besides being a platform for income, Skillboard will have the possibility for likeminded people to find each other. These people can come together to share and learn from each other's interest, knowledge and skills.

EASILY GET JOBS, SERVICES OR ANYTHING ELSE DONE BY OTHERS

Use anyones skill, whenever and wherever. No matter where you are, you can directly find someone who is equipped with the right skills to provide you in anything you need.

SKILL TOKEN

PAYMENT

The SKILL token will be used as a way of payment for Skillers. We want to break down global barriers and give users a universal coin that can be used as the primary payment mechanism to pay or to get paid. Therefore, it will represent a measure of value on the Skillboard platform.

SKILLER FUND

Skillboard will have a ‘Skiller fund’, a fund that is fuelled by taking a 2% from payments that are done through the platform. From this fund, the best performing Skillers can win SKILL tokens. This will foster entrepreneurship and active participation on the Skillboard platform.

COURT

The SKILL token will provide their owner the possibility to become a judge in the court process whenever there is a dispute between two parties. The court system will use the ‘wisdom of the crowd’ to come to a fair judgement since the decision that has the majority of the votes will be considered truth.

GOVERNMENT

Our partnership with the Dutch government can provide new possibilities to integrate and use the SKILL token in real world situations. When proven successful, cross-border programs in collaboration with other countries is expected.

CRYPTOCURRENCY STOCK EXCHANGE

The SKILL token will become tradeable on online exchanges. Adding a extra layer of functionality aside from serving as a way of payment. Now you can directly trade your skill and labour effort on the cryptocurrency stock market!





Skillboard will only charge 3% transaction fee:
2% to fuel the Skiller Fund.
1% to ensure maintenance of the platform.
