    Pros: 

    Feels good to use decentralized professional platform

    Cons: 

    Looks like it's still primitive, regular sign-in error, and unsolved token rewards

    Registered on this platfom probably 2-3 months ago, and it still looks the same on outer. Could have done facelift and made little more impressive. Also, I did all the verification process and yet it shows as 50% verified and the tokens hasn't been rewarded for the verifications done. The support said me these issues would be solved once they would complete moving to their blockchain, but it was more than a month ago, and haven't been solved yet. Plus for last few days, I can't seem to login to my account. Yeah tried different browsers, clear cookies and everything. No success or whatsoever!

    Pros: 

    A decentralized professional attestation platform. A disrupt to traditional centralized platforms.

    Cons: 

    Needs more professionals switching over to Springrole!

    People will no longer require to validate work expertise and experience over and over. Roles, Teams, Advisory, Tokens etc can all be managed and securely validated all while maintaining professional attestation and user's privacy. Potential game changer to faster background checks, dating, hiring, lending, startup team validations, prevent users/investors/partners from being scammed, cheated. Future is here!

We started the company in 2014 by matching jobs with resumes using LinkedIn’s API, scaled to $50K MRR and then LinkedIn shut us down. Now you can’t even get access to their API without talking to them. They own all your data and decide what they want to do with it. Decentralization lets users control their data and decide what to do with it. Your profile on SpringRole is something you want to be able to customize, enrich with different modules, get it verified and finally own it. Exciting times ahead!

SpringRole, it's not just alternative to LinkedIn it is one of its kind. Having a #VerifiedProfessionalProfile on the blockchain with super easy UI anyone one can have their SpringRole profile within a few minutes. With skill endorsement, we are going towards skill-based profile rather than who have more connections. Here is my profile https://springrole.com/nervehammer signup here: https://springrole.com to create your own ;)

Great and clean UX something that is not there on linkedin. Linkedin keeps spamming me to send invites to all my friends. And linkedin has become more like facebook now. Some random shitty posts keep clogging my feed
