Palo Alto, CA, March 28, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Databook is excited to announce that it will be partnering with SpringRole.
Databook and SpringRole are partnering together because the partnership will benefit both platforms’ user bases. Databook will give SpringRole users the ability to control and monetize the data from their SpringRole accounts. Conversely, SpringRole will offer Databook users an opportunity to create professional data profiles that can be connected to their Databook profiles.
According to Databook CEO, Robert Wensley, “We’re extremely happy to be announcing our partnership with SpringRole! Partnering with Databook demonstrates SpringRole’s strong commitment to its users. Databook supports SpringRole’s mission 100%.”
API integration between the two platforms will be completed by June of 2018.
What is Databook?
Databook is a decentralized protocol that allows consumers to control and monetize their data.
In 2017, The Economist announced that the world’s most valuable resource is no longer oil, but data. Unfortunately, data brokers are earning billions from this shift while consumers are losing control of their private information. For instance, last year 143 million Americans had their personal information stolen in the Equifax data breach. In contrast, data brokers will earn $250 billion this year selling consumer data. To fix this unethical balance, Databook is developing blockchain technology that will allow consumers to control and monetize their data.

What is SpringRole?
SpringRole is a decentralized protocol for attestations of professional profiles.
The goal of SpringRole is to become the first professional reputation network to be built on the blockchain, eliminating fraud from user profiles and improving transparency.
When a user signs up and adds details to his profile, the information goes through a one-time verification, and the attestation is written on the blockchain. This implies that the information entered on the profile is not susceptible to fraud and leads to a highly authentic profile. It also negates the need for new employers to spend time, money and effort in re-verifying profiles of potential candidates.
The skills that are added by the user are also endorsed by people in the user’s network. Skill endorsements are weighted according to the skill level of the endorser and need to be accepted by the sender and receiver before they are made permanent. These endorsements have a small cost associated with them, making endorsements more meaningful. This crowdsourcing of skill reputation of the user leads to an objective way to access someone’s skill proficiency. Through smart contracts, endorsers are rewarded when people they’ve endorsed get hired or paid on SpringRole.
