With the recent Elon's claims that Twitter needs to remove bots from the platform, Our Client believes that the world needs a single space of verified identities, but also to have it decentralized and allow these identities to transact with each other. Our client's goal is to authenticate a billion+ people, and everyone will get a free share of our digital currency. Our Client is looking to build their blockchain on top of the proof-of-identity consensus mechanism later. They're goal is to build the world's coolest and strongest technical team worldwide that would shape the culture of our open source dev community.
Roles & Responsibilities
As an early team member, you will get a chance to shape both the foundations of our clients product, backend architecture, and team culture. They will measure your success by your ability to ship fast, learn quickly, and contribute to our culture of continuous improvement. Additionally, you will:
Design and build server-side Human L2 and blockchain architecture (using Golang, AWS, Azure)
Write technical documentation
Manage the server-side technical team
Develop and manage well-functioning decentralized databases
What our Client does, in simple terms:
They make a blockchain that runs on the devices of everyone involved in that blockchain.
They make it so that everyone has a voice of their own. For being verified in the system, each person receives a reward, Human Dollars, and that currency is distributed to everyone on the planet (since we expect to verify everyone).
The user gets money for taking the time to verify and for being a member of the network, for helping to verify the next transactions that will take place inside the blockchain.
As a result, they have a decentralized system of unique identities that can be used for anything on the Internet where there is fraud (bots, etc.).
There will be integration with social networks and other systems –
Since the system is decentralized, this means that people own their own personal information and there is no situation that one company owns the data of 8 billion people, this is dangerous.
