Braintrust is a decentralized talent network that replaces our outdated, fragmented labor market with a liquid, algorithmically controlled marketplace governed by network participants.
The network runs on the Ethereum blockchain with a native token called BTRST, which users earn by introducing and onboarding clients (demand) and talent (supply) to the network. In addition, clients use BTRST to enhance their job postings, and talent uses BTRST to enhance their proposals or take courses to level up their skills.
Lastly, by forking the Compound governance protocol, they've enabled a one-token, one-vote system that gives token holders proportional control over how the network is governed. These native token uses provide strong incentives to clients and talent to use the network and participate in the governance of the network. They refer to this incentive alignment as the ownership economy.
