Our project is to bring transparency and efficiency, two fundamental characteristics of the new era, to the talent sourcing market – dancers, actors, models, all kind of gig performers. We are aiming to consolidate supply and demand channels and offer a non-perishable reputation to every market participant. Initially our tools will help to overcome the majority of existing problems in the talent-booker relationship: comprehensive search for talents / gigs, reputation tracing, and convenient presentation tools for both sides.
With the project development, we are going to setup ecosystem market place for talents to exchange / sell / rent their gear & equipment as well as micro-KOL partnership programs with brands to advertise their product and services with high-reputation platform participants. Meta-data mining will be enabled via Skyledger CXO protocol. This all will be supported by MDL Token.
We believe that current means of booking talents are outdated logically and technologically. With help of blockchain technology (as well as other instruments and approaches) we are going to create reputational module, so that any market activity can be consolidated and traced. More than that, using MDL Token we are going to create ecosystem economy, which will allow us not only to attract more participants, but also spread sources of income. Thus commission on transactions will be decreased and hence we will outrange our possible competitors.
Why did we choose WAVES platform for PRE-ITO?
Frankly, none of our team members ever was active in Waves community. But we had a vast knowledge of some Ethereum projects while being experienced investors with ERC20s. The problem is. ETH user experience still far away from what people expect from it. This problem doesn’t seem to change any time soon and the current state of congestion with Ethereum network doesn’t allow not only the first useful apps (ICOs + crypto kitties) to show its potential to the world, but it simply shows that putting entire world into one single database [which blockchains de-facto are] is probably not the best idea. Vitalik and his team did great job, they helped crypto community grow and opened eyes to many, but they underestimated the impact it was about to bring to the world. Instead of fighting congestion wars with all those ERC20s, while letting our investors waste tons of money on transaction fees, we have been happy users of Sasha’s creation: it’ll allow MDL team achieve our initial crowdfunding goals and focus on what’s important - building great product. MDL is NOT surfing the blockchain crypto hype, we’re riding the industrial revolution 4.0 vibes.
Why do we choose Skycoin tech / Skyledger?
MDL is [currently] not a dapp or a mere bunch of smart contracts. We see blockchain as important part of technical evolution. Most importantly - all the blockchains in our eyes are databases. Yes, databases with their peculiar attractive properties of being distributed and immutable. Ethereum is trying to put entire world into one database; but for us as a startup it’s important to make sure that technologies we’re using are solid and well tested. As it was very well put on skycoin’s github, Skycoin improves on Bitcoin [and hence most of its forks] in too many ways to be addressed here. Instead we suggest to have a look into their blog and maybe even glance at the whitepapers.
