What is Gems?
Gems is the protocol for decentralized mechanical turk. People will use Gems to complete micro tasks.
There are 3 levels to Gems:
Gems Protocol: The Gems Protocol assesses the validity of work and trust of network participants; DApps will be built on top of the Gems Protocol
Gems Platform: The first platform built off of the Gems Protocol; pairs workers and requesters for micro tasks.
Modules: Reusable open-source task interfaces built on the Gems Platform
Anyone can build on the Gems Protocol, creating innovative verification methods for new types of work.
For a quick introduction to Gems, you can check out our blog post. For a more in-depth exploration, you can read our white paper.
What are micro tasks?
Micro tasks are small, simple tasks that require human judgment and can be completed independently over the Internet. Examples of micro tasks include labelling pictures and transcribing audio to text. You can read more about micro tasks in our blog post dedicated to them.
What problem does Gems solve?
Gems reduces consensus by redundancy, increases pay for individual workers while decreasing total pay for requesters, creates efficient interfaces, eliminates large fees, allows others to build innovative DApps on top of it, and enables computer literate workers with internet to work with or without a bank account.
How does Gems compare to existing solutions?
Are you hiring?
We are currently hiring backend and frontend engineers. We don’t hire exclusively for languages but rather for smart people; with that being said, however, knowing Solidity/Golang or React/Redux is a plus. Feel free to reach out to rory (at) gems (dot) org.
