is using blockchain technology to allow authentication of CV credentials. So, career credentials such as CV’s, assessments, medical records, training certificates and university diplomas from any sector, from any country can be validated and authenticated for the role one is applying for, in an easy and cost-effective process.

Most of us have exaggerated some piece of information in our CV’s at one point in our lives. If CVproof proves successful, exaggerated and CV’s may not be valid for much longer. While this could be a very useful tool for company’s and employers, it could also prove much more difficult for individuals to find jobs. That being said, it is more important for companies to hire the appropriate skilled and qualified individual, rather than wasting their time and efforts.

CVproof tokens, which are called INK, will be the currency used by CVProof. CVproof will provide a business model that rewards stakeholders, through a ‘revenue sharing mechanism’. Users will be able to create and sell new services and skills including CV design and recruitment. It is a ‘true game changer’ for regulated and training-oriented industries, such as aviation, education and healthcare.

Ecosystem: 36%

Operations: 42%

Legal: 6%

Campaign 2: Twitter Campaign: 20% allocation

CVProof’s white paper is very readable, clear and simple. It does not promise anything extravagant and it does not seem like a scam, like many other ICO’s. Their idea is both simple and effective and it could be a great success if all goes to plan. The team seem confident that investors will see what they see for CVproof, and therefore invest.

CVproof’s website and whitepaper identifies its four main purposes:

  1. Stop professional profile frauds and cheats
  2. Slash the cost and lead-time of vetting services
  3. Introduce an incentive model fueled by tokens
  4. Reduce non-relevant applications

CVproof’s Twitter and Telegram numbers are very decent for this early stage, although they still have some work to do before they are heard.


CVproof’s idea is really good and very promising, therefore I can see great potential. It is identifying a problem and resolving it by using blockchain technology to ensure the credibility of data. It is definitely worth investigating further as it could potentially be very successful.
