My Announcement – Introducing, Proof of Talent!

by birtanpublished on September 10, 2020

Everyone what's going on it's your boy Krypto Bobby I hope you were having a great day great night wherever you are watching or listening in from and today I have a special announcement it was something I alluded to last night in Krypto happy

Hour and had talked about it a little bit for I utilized a fantastic trick from a legendary man who is now getting lunched with Warren Buffett the announcement of an announcement I decided to go forward with such a

Strategy I went with it and today I have to deliver on my side of the bargain and what's that actually telling you what the announcement is some of you may have seen it on Twitter already I put out a tweet thread in the medium article

Which I have linked below but if you haven't seen it yet I'd like to announce today that I have started my own company it is something that I am incredibly excited about I have not been this excited in the space really in my life

In a in a very very long time today I'd like to announce proof of talent which is a specialized technology recruiting firm specifically for the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry and you might be thinking yourself Rob what do you know

About tech recruiting you make podcasts and you make youtube videos well actually started my career in technology recruiting in Washington DC I placed candidates at companies like Dell Cisco Yahoo multiple branches of the US

Government and that was actually the job where I discovered cryptocurrency Bitcoin and dogecoin as well I had a friend share an article with me one of my colleagues at that recruiting firm and ended up mining Bitcoin on my

Desktop at work with a little USB ASIC miner in like December of 2013 don't tell anybody I did that but my background started in tech recruiting I ended up working at LinkedIn which I'm sure many of you know working with their

Talent solutions team helping corporations and companies to leverage the LinkedIn tools to better find a talent so my background is very much ingrained in hiring and connecting talent with top companies in the space

And over time I've gotten deeper and deeper into the cryptocurrency world in the blockchain world I've developed a lot of relationships with some of the best companies in the crypto world I've

Gotten a chance to speak with many of their founders and CEOs and one of the biggest problems that they face is hiring talent specifically tech talent they need software engineers they need developers to help bring the vision that

They have to life and in a lot of respects it is a difficult thing for them to find it is a highly highly competitive field to do so so they need an edge what's that edge will I hope it's proof of talent but why is it so

Difficult for them you might ask like this is a cool industry right well a CEO recently described it to me as this when they're trying to hire they have two separate sets of difficulty number one they have what they would consider

Startup risk when a candidate is considering working at the company they're looking at it between Facebook Google Twitter uber or whatever it might be public companies and there is a risk with working at a start-up not only that

Not only is there risk working at a start-up there's technology risk because the startup that they're working at is building on Bitcoin it's leveraging Bitcoin it's leveraging aetherium it's working the cryptocurrency well there is

Regulatory risk there's a lot of unseen kind of undetermined circumstances around the industry so not only is there startup risk but there's also technology risk leading to what that CEO described as a risk squared and I think it's an

Excellent descriptor for the issues and the challenges a lot of these companies face and when you look at the industry as a whole there is a tremendous demand for talent like I said if you look at LinkedIn

According to LinkedIn in 2018 blockchain developers were the number one fastest growing job and profession in Lincoln in the United States with 33 X growth 2019 hired software engineers report determined that the demand for growth

For blockchain engineers was over 500 percent year-over-year was the number one most in-demand skill set on hired marketplace but how much talent is there to fill that supply there's not enough so there is a massive

Gap between supply and demand and that is what I hope at proof of talent to help facilitate and to kind of bridge that gap with my team services so I am incredibly excited about that you might have two questions right now number one

Does this affect the YouTube channel does this affect the podcast at all no it won't affect the YouTube channel won't affect the podcast if anything I think it's going to help it a little bit more and what I mean by that is there's

Gonna be a new opportunity for content in addition to what I typically do as far as you know crypto happy hour hanging out as well as providing daily commentary on the market things like that I'd also like to expand into

Discussing what working in cryptocurrency is like and so having interviews with individuals not just interviews about hey what do you think the markets gonna do you know things like that talking about having

Interviews with individuals who used to work in a different industry maybe they worked in financial services maybe they worked in big tech maybe they just graduated college and now they work in cryptocurrency what are their thoughts

About it what do they like about it what are they not like about it how did they get into the industry how would they recommend you getting into the industry as well talking with CEOs and hiring managers about how they're going about

Finding talent on a consistent basis – those are the types of new spins on content that I'd like to provide on the YouTube channel and the podcast in addition to obviously running proof of talent now to that point I think there

Is a really nice opportunity for myself and proof talent to work with viewers of this channel as well there's there's three different ways we can do that number one if you're watching this channel and you're a software engineer

You're a software developer you're a technical presence and you would like to are working in the cryptocurrency space or you are in the crypto space right now and you'd like to work for a different company feel free to reach out I'll have

Links below and we can chat about what you're currently up to and what you're looking for and if the roles that I have on my desk would be a good fit for you number two if you are a company if you are CEO hiring manager and you are in

Need of talent please reach out below as well and the third thing because I know not everybody in the that's watching right now is either a software engineer a develop for a technical individual that has the

Skillset that's ideal for the cryptocurrency world or a hiring company as well but maybe you know somebody that is maybe one of your friends a software engineer maybe one of your friends is looking to work in crypto and the way we

Can work here there and that is proof of talent we're proud to offer a referral bonus and it's a pretty substantial referral bonus as well if you refer a job candidate to us that we place you will get a thousand-dollar referral

Bonus in BTC eath or USD which is pretty awesome I think or alternatively if you know of a company that's hiring and you refer a company to us and we place a candidate with that company we will pay you a thousand bucks in Bitcoin etherium

Or USD as well so an opportunity to help out your friends that might be looking for a job or trying to find a new opportunity as well I really can't state how excited I am about the opportunity to move this

Industry forward in any way I can and help people find careers and and hopefully lifelong careers in this space as well as helping the companies in the crypto and blockchain industry grow and scale to the best of their ability with

The talent that they need to get it done I would love to hear your thoughts on the in the YouTube comments if you have any questions as well I'm happy to reach out I'm happy to answer those thank you so much for your time like I said before
