Pantoja: ‘Taking the Place of a Recruitment Agency’
With Ethereum smart contracts working as the backbone of the HireMatch platform, company co-founder Armando Pantoja noted the mission at hand is to take job recruitment services into the twenty-first century courtesy of blocktech.
How so? Through incentivization, as agents are paid in ERC-20 tokens to fill gigs with the best possible employees. Per Pantoja:
“What we do is, traditionally, if a job needs to be filled, a company or an employer will go to Monster.com and they’ll put their job out there. They’ll passively wait for applicants to come in. We’re going to reverse that. What we’re going to do is we’re going to make it an active process. We’re going to … employers and jobs will come to our website, they’ll post a job, and we’ll send it out to a system of agents who will find, verify, and submit those candidates to a job.”

Growth of the North American Bitcoin Conference
The North American Bitcoin Conference (TNABC) is regarded as the original major Bitcoin event in the USA, and possibly the world. Held annually in Miami every January since 2013, it staked that city’s claim as Bitcoin’s fun and business capital — growing from a few hundred bitcoin enthusiasts into a gathering of thousands, including several high-profile industry leaders. It’s a must-attend event on the blockchain calendar.
Produced by Dr. Moe Levin’s Keynote Events team, it now covers all disruptive blockchain technology issues — including smart contracts, ICOs, fintech, regulation and investment. TNABC also has international sister events, such as World Blockchain Forum in London.
