Science Launches SpringRole To Tackle Professional Reputations Using Blockchain

Santa Monica-based startup studio Science, led by former MySpace CEO Mike Jones and Peter Pham, has launched a new company called SpringRole, to tackle the fraud in user profiles. According to Jones, SpringRole is the first professional reputation network powered by artificial intelligence and blockchain. The new startup--the first Blockchain startup out of Science--lets employers and educators verify information on user profiles, and also uses Blockchain to weight endorsements of others in your network. The startup also said it will reward endorsers when people are paid or hired. The new startup is being led by Kartik Mandaville, who will serve as founder and CEO of the company; he also is serving as technical advisor for Science Blockchain, Science's Blockchain-based investment fund.
