SKILLCHAIN - An Interstate Migrant Job Portal Powered by Blockchain

Skillchain is a blockchain based job portal for unorganized or informal sector, which provides a transparent and trusted platform for the inter-state migrants and employers to directly connect with each other. Skillchain enable a worker to build up an experience certificate which is endorsed by the employers. Skillchain is a public, tamperproof and transparent application using Blockchain technology that connect unskilled and unorganized migrant workers and job providers so that the exploitation by middlemen such as unrecognized agents and contractors can be eliminated. The worker can register with the portal by creating their profile and uploading labour history, skills, availability and other personal details and a job provider can directly connect with the worker. This will create a transparency in job search and application process among these unskilled workers. We also propose a distributed digital ledger that records each and every work completed by the worker and also a review and rating mechanism by the job provider. Government agencies can also be a part of this system for ensuring minimum standards in wages and other living conditions for these workers.
