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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
