Braintrust (BTRST) is a decentralized Ethereum token powering the talent network Braintrust. It helps to incentivize on-demand workers and freelancers.
As said, Braintrust is a decentralized talent network connecting freelancers to organizations worldwide. The demand for skilled freelancers by enterprises has shot up worldwide. Braintrust helps to meet the enterprise demand by connecting the top talent with organizations.
The great part is that it allows freelancers to keep 1005 of their earnings while eliminating the middleman. The platform developers noted:
“Braintrust is a live, self-governing decentralized network with tens of thousands of talent participants and hundreds of Fortune 1000 enterprises including Nestle, Porsche, Atlassian, Goldman Sachs, and Nike processing millions of dollars in transactions each month. All of the development and maintenance of the network has been done by a global network of contributors on the Braintrust network.”
Furthermore, Braintrust has a sound business model. While it charges nothing from the freelancers, it takes a 10% cut from the enterprises. In comparison to other Web 2.0 marketplaces, Braintrust helps to save 70% of fees on both sides.
Braintrust launched the BTRST token earlier this week on September 1, 2021. The launch took place on the Ethereum mainnet with the BTRST token following ERC20 standards. The supply of BTRST tokens has been capped at 250 million tokens. Thus, the total number of BTRST tokens in circulation can never surpass this number.
