Blockchain has inherent features that could build the next generation of work platforms to be more efficient, secure and lead to a higher quality of freelance work. But can blockchain also help redesign a value proposition for platforms, distribute fair rewards to freelancers and ultimately enable good work?

The session will start with a short introduction to blockchain, and its opportunities in HR and the platform economy. It will address the potential application of blockchain, smart contracts and crypto incentives for the benefit of platform operators, HR practitioners, freelancers and their customers.
