SpringRole has developed a blockchain powered protocol for professional attestations.

When an advisor claims they're an advisor for a company, this claim can be verified and attested by someone in the company. Similarly, when a company claims that a person is an advisor to them, the claim can be verified and attested by the advisor.

Thanks @kwdinc for hunting us :) My name is Kartik and I'm the founder of SpringRole. I'm happy to announce that we have launched our first product feature- company advisory verification on the blockchain. Did you know that it is a common practice in today’s #fakeinformation world where startups (many ICO companies) use random advisor names for their benefit? This problem exists the other way too, a lot of advisors who are just starting up use names of companies without their consent while they try to get new gigs. At the core, the problem is user-generated content which is not validated. We are on a mission to eliminate situations like these. With SpringRole, you can protect your company's and advisors' online professional identity and hence promote trust. As a big fan of product hunt, I have decided to offer you'll a 100% discount. The code is PRODUCTHUNT to avail $25 off. Do give in your feedback, I'm happy to take questions!

I have been beta-testing this for a month now, great team and execution. When building CryptoVigil last year, I would run into a bunch of scammy ICOs with fake advisors and this product goes a long way to solve it. Can't wait to see everything else SpringRole has in store.

Pros:

A real use case of blockchain

Simple UX

No gas costs

Cons:

Needs more PHers using it :)

Congratulations on being hunted :-D @kar2905. I might have mentioned this to someone before. A narrow use-case for me is with freelancers, another micro segment with a massive fraud problem. For clients/companies looking for expert freelancers for a job, even if at a premium, there is no way to verify their claims, recos beyond their word. If gig economy is the future of employment, this will not remain a micro segment and some community verification method has to be built to solve this.
