Opolis, a next-generation employment ecosystem for the self-sovereign worker built on Ethereum, announced today a new blockchain-based Decentralized Employment Organization (DEO) with eBenefits Network, an independent U.S. based network for employee benefits and related services.
Based on a trust-minimized protocol that integrates web2 and web3 technologies, eBN’s DEO will allow individuals to access portable, democratically chosen employment services and benefits in one ecosystem.
“We strongly believe that the aging and rigid Professional Employer Organization (PEO) platforms and models that serve employer groups are missing the changes in the workforce structures and leaving the growing base of independent contractors and gig-economy workers without a platform that is specifically built to fit their current work style.”
– eBenefits Network CEO Ash Rofail
Opolis’ soft launch is currently in progress with select freelancers, and will open DEO membership offerings to the public soon. The eBN DEO will be one of many from which workers will have to choose.
“Opolis is thrilled to be partnering with eBN to offer its DEO members access to enhanced products and services in a marketplace setting. eBN has been a respected company in the HR technology space for years, and Opolis looks forward to maximizing efforts to empower the future of self-sovereign workers together.”
– Opolis Founder and Executive Steward John Paller
