We interviewed Dror Gurevich, Founder and CEO at Velocity Network Foundation.
Velocity Network founded by its namesake foundation is a platform which enables the exchange of trusted career records to constituents like schools and employers, turning them into immutable and verifiable digital credentials owned by the individual.
The job market is a relatively unexplored domain for digital verification while people have been navigating their careers with “self-reported unverifiable CVs” in a broken data market.
Most employers, however, have been under a regulatory regime for 6/7 years to vet resumes and careers records of job applicants before hiring.
Velocity Network is largely acting alone in digitally transforming career verification by bring together the largest vendors to deploy the “internet of careers” – a blockchain-based layered open source platform that allows individuals to claim verifiable career credentials from primary authorities such as schools.
