NEW YORK, Nov. 1, 2018 — Following a first round $10 million seed investment and a successful trial run in the US, Humans.net a next-generation social platform is launching globally. This move places Humans.net in an ideal position to challenge the monopoly of existing social platforms, which exploit user data and charge for their services.
Humans.net is a third generation social community for individuals and companies looking to buy and sell their skill sets. Its ultimate aim is to develop and provide a global Human Resource Bank where by all skills and services across the globe can be accessed from a single platform, enabling people to find the help they need or the work they want. The initial trial run across four US states has attracted 200,000 users to Humans.net by the platform’s unique features; no fees, no commission, and no hidden costs.
“We are using advanced Artificial Intelligence to drive the search process on the platform which will radically alter how we connect online with peers and businesses. People will get swift and accurate search results irrespective of geographical location,” said Vlad Dobrynin, founder and CEO, Humans.net. “It’s a revolutionary online model which is set to radically alter how we interact online and how we trade skills and services. The compelling attraction for users is that there is no middleman to scrape off money because there are no fees whatsoever. Users have real-time direct conversations with one another, data privacy is not violated, and there are zero hidden costs. If users wish to earn revenue, they can permit their data be used for advertising, all within a safe and protected environment that is free from fraud. Existing online platforms have pricey membership fees or high commission charges. Their search processes are time-consuming and complex payment systems create barriers and deter people from using them. Humans.net turns this around and completely recreate how people work with one another and utilize services”.
The trial run illustrated a strong need for skills and services across many areas including household and gardening, law, finance and taxes, business assistance and homes and different types of training. Unlike similar platforms which gather user data for commercial purposes and charge fees, Humans.net will be a decentralized platform, meaning that data is not owned by anyone other than users, and cannot be used unless owners give permission. Privacy is guaranteed. Each user has a unique access key, and users who agree to have their data used for marketing receive 25% of revenue generated from the advertising.
“By leveraging decentralised networks, power is given back to users ensuring no one can use their data without their permission. In today’s world of data driven economies, this is a radical but far-reaching step,” Dobrynin said.
Humans.net uses an advanced scoring system, so recommendations between users are based on the view of relevant individuals rather than a means-based scoring system, making it far more accurate in matching people and services. Humans.net will also use a unique DNA-based verification system to ensure users are who they claim to be, eliminating any potential for fraud. Human’s ultimate vision is to transform today’s platform into the world’s largest fully decentralized peer-to-peer network, enabling more efficient interactions between people and businesses around the world.
Humans.net is a technologically advanced, data-driven platform serving as a one-stop shop for people seeking work, help and services. Headed up by Vlad Dobrynin, founder and CEO, the platform uses advanced proprietary technologies to securely connect people. It is capable of cataloging the skills, knowledge and characteristics of billions of people around the world serving as a global resource bank for all people and businesses.
