The immutable records on WorkChain.io are built using blockchain’s consensus model. Through the consensus model, “blocks” of data can only be permanently recorded to the blockchain once they have been verified through the consensus of those with access to the platform. This ensures the information is trusted and tamper-proof.
When your data is added to the WorkChain.io, it is time-stamped and reviewed for verification by approved entities on the platform using a set of comprehensive verification standards (detailed below) and the platform’s Trust Score Protocol. The team at WorkChain.io cannot access, edit or use your data in anyway, other than as part of the verification process of the WorkChain.io protocol.
Two kinds of records are created through the WorkChain.io protocol:
1. Trust Records
Trust Records are created through our proprietary Trust Score Protocol. The Trust Score Protocol evaluates connections between the record author (the person or entity creating the records), record subject (the person whose work history is being recorded) and validator (a verified third-party related to the subject and able to confirm that the record is true) to determine what data can be trusted and permanently written to the WorkChain.io platform.
2. Proof of Work Records
Proof of Work Records are written by applications integrated with WorkChain.io whereby the creator of the record is a trusted third-party and so the data it provides can’t be altered by an individual user.
Proof of Work Records are multi-signed by both the integrated application providing the data as well as the organization it relates to. Proof of Work Records do not require verification through the Trust Score Protocol.
WorkChain.io Verification Standards
As part of the verification process of WorkChain.io, records on the platform are secured through a set of strict verification standards that secure the information that encode data into the hash of the records to secure the transactions, including:
- ID of employee (‘About Whom’ Identifier)
- ID of Organization, Company or Educational Institution (‘From Whom’ Identifier)
- Timestamped creation date
- Position in organization (e.g. CEO, COO, CTO)
- Start date
- End date
