It’s always interesting to shine a spotlight on startups that are doing something extraordinary to disrupt business as usual. Today’s post draws your attention to one such Startup Review: BitJob. At its heart, BitJob is a special kind of social network. BitJob is an important innovation for students, designed to help them earn money while they gain valuable work experience that will prove useful when they look for a permanent job.

BitJob Brings BlockchainA private key is a string of data that shows you have access to cryptocurrency in a specific wallet. Private keys enable a user to spend from the wallet through a cryptographic signature. Technology to the Student Workforce

BitJob takes the idea behind the popular freelancer job boards — where job seekers bid on jobs — and focuses them toward micro-gigs. To do this, BitJob uses BlockchainA private key is a string of data that shows you have access to cryptocurrency in a specific wallet. Private keys enable a user to spend from the wallet through a cryptographic signature. technology to form a platform where employers and students collaborate to the advantage of both in PeerPeer-to-peer (P2P) refers to the decentralized interactions that happen between two or more parties parties in a interconnected network. P2P participants deal directly with each other. to PeerPeer-to-peer (P2P) refers to the decentralized interactions that happen between two or more parties parties in a interconnected network. P2P participants deal directly with each other. (P2P) networking. We think of it as concentrating the freelance workforce on “no job too small” platforms.

How do student workers get paid?

Or they can use cryptocurrencyA Cryptocurrency address is used to receive and send transactions on the network. An address is most commonly represented as a string of alphanumeric characters and sometimes referred to as wallets. Addresses can also be represented as a scannable QR code. (think bitcoinA Cryptocurrency address is used to receive and send transactions on the network.

Smart Contracts are agreements created by a computer platform. The terms of the Smart Contract memorialize the negotiations between the buyers and sellers but instead of reducing those particulars to a traditional writing, encodes the terms, “written” as it were in lines of code.

The contracts reside in the BlockchainA private key is a string of data that shows you have access to cryptocurrency in a specific wallet.

There is no legal system nor any enforcement entity needed. The contracts are “traceable, transparent, and irreversible”, according to Investopedia.com.

They include the Dutch Government’s Blockchain Projects, The Netherland’s Government, Blockchain Association of Canada (BAC), QBRICSBlockchain Education Network, Cambridge Blockchain, Infolab, University of Florida Gator Bitcoin Club, and Blockchain Healthcare Review, just to name a few.

From the Perspective of the Healthcare Industry

How can the healthcare industry piggyback on this peer-to-peer model? Antiquated best describes our medical records process today. Many of the larger hospitals have graduated to electronic health recordsPrecision medicine is the emerging field of medical treatment that addresses disease and physical ailments at the molecular level- meaning treatment plans and procedures are more often than not tailored to a patients genetic code. Overall, precision medicine encompasses areas such as clinical inf... More but individual doctors, especially in rural areas, have not converted. Their medical records are still filled by paper which makes it very hard to search.

What we need is a way to connect the health records of our personal physicians to the health records in the hospital and to our lab results, and so on. Even the information currently stored on computers is not connected to other computers that have additional health information. Added to that, the individual servers that hold the medical information are easy for hackers to break.

BlockchainA private key is a string of data that shows you have access to cryptocurrency in a specific wallet. Private keys enable a user to spend from the wallet through a cryptographic signature. technology holds out a potential solution to these connectivity issues. Just suppose, the modern medical record system encrypted an individual’s medical records and stored them on a peer-to-peerAn individual that shares responsibility for maintaining the integrity of the ledger. network. In much the same way that BlockchainA private key is a string of data that shows you have access to cryptocurrency in a specific wallet. Private keys enable a user to spend from the wallet through a cryptographic signature. currently stores financial information, or the way BitJob stores potential jobs, BlockchainA private key is a string of data that shows you have access to cryptocurrency in a specific wallet. Private keys enable a user to spend from the wallet through a cryptographic signature. technology can also store medical records.

Once an individual designates a hospital or physician who then can access the system, all those disparate pieces of medical information come together. Such a system saves on paperwork and repetitive manual data input. Entering information only needs to happen one time because it is then shared among all people who have access to the medical records. And the individual controls how much information from his medical records he wants to give each medical provider.

The U. S. Department of Health and Human Services is so interested in applying this technology to health care that it is reaching out to BlockchainA private key is a string of data that shows you have access to cryptocurrency in a specific wallet. Private keys enable a user to spend from the wallet through a cryptographic signature. technology experts to explain how it would work in a healthcare setting. In addition, MIT researchers created a prototype where they entered patient data such as prescriptions, medical history, and so on into a BlockchainA private key is a string of data that shows you have access to cryptocurrency in a specific wallet. Private keys enable a user to spend from the wallet through a cryptographic signature. platform. Then, they experimented to see if specific physicians could access the data. It worked well so now the prototype will expand to hospital networks to see how well it works in that setting.
