Vanywhere, the skill-sharing platform that enables anyone with a marketable skill to capitalize on their knowledge and talent, is announcing today a collaboration with Qtum, the blockchain application platform. The Vanywhere marketplace runs on the smart VANY token, which adheres to the Qtum QRC20 token standard as the currency used for payment within the Vanywhere ecosystem.
Founded in 2015, Vanywhere’s platform is operational and has been used and tested by users. The company has raised equity seed round, and participated in the CrossRider Innovation Accelerator.
Vanywhere is the ultimate pairing app between “Skillers”, those who are looking to share their expertise, and those looking for specific skills and advice. The decentralized nature of the platform creates a “knowledge industry,” in which Skillers have direct control over their earnings on the platform.
“Vanywhere provides a new way for almost anyone to earn cryptocurrency through skill-sharing, which should help onboard a new generation of cryptocurrency users,” says Patrick Dai, Founder of the Qtum Foundation. “Typically, freelancers incur large fees for the platforms they use, and I think it will be great to see how Vanywhere’s solution for reputation and payments disrupt this market.”
“This major contribution demonstrates the confidence that Qtum, one of the world’s major blockchain platforms, has in Vanywhere’s technology and the utility of its VANY token. We are grateful for Qtum’s support for us and our vision,” says Rami Shechter, Founder and CEO of Vanywhere. “We’re looking forward to this collaboration with Qtum’s platform, that is well suited to face the real world scenarios in terms of speed, security and cost.”
