When did the HireVibes Token Airdrop happen?

Why do I need to do KYC?

If you successfully land a job or successfully refer somebody, you will need to do KYC to receive your HVT reward. We are required to do this in order to meet global regulatory standards. Typically when someone finds a job they are required to do KYC with their new employer anyway. We know its not fun but it’s got to be done ;)

EOS Accounts?

You don't need an EOS account to sign up and browse job openings. If you get hired or refer successfully, then you will need an EOS account. But good news, if you don’t already have an EOS account, we’ll set one up for you free of charge. We’ve developed an open source EOS key management tool that enables you to manage your keys easily and privately.

Where is the HireVibes DAC Constitution? What is the role of the HireVibes DAC?

The first version of the HireVibes DAC Constitution will be released in Q3 2019. The HireVibes DAC will be active after the Constitution and the public beta of the Dapp are released.

In brief, the HireVibes DAC will be governed collectively by its token holders to manage the resources of the community held init's EOS account https://bloks.io/account/hirevibesdac via periodic votes.

The HireVibes DAC will use tools provided by https://eosdac.io/ and Discord to manage the community, voting, communication, etc.

Staking and Unstaking HVT

The HireVibes Staking system was built to enable HireVibes early community members to claim more HVT. The HVT staking rewards have ended as of 30th June 2019. However the staking system will remain role until all HVT are unstaked.

How does the HireVibes incentive model work?

Employers are empowered to set their own reward level (Minimum 6% - Max 12%). When they hire a candidate through the HireVibes Dapp; 3.5% is shared with the person hired for the role; if a peer referred the successful candidate, this 3.5% is split evenly between the referrer and hired individual.

For every position filled through the HireVibes Dapp, 1.5% of the salary of each filled job will be allocated to HireVibes DAC EOS account and 1% donated to a charity; the successful candidate can select which humanitarian or environmental project he/she would like to support through the HireVibes Dapp.

How much does it cost to use the HireVibes platform?


Will employers be able to hide their company name on a job posting?

Yes. Some employers may not want to disclose their company name; however, we estimate over 90% of jobs posted on HireVibes Dapp will display the hirer’s details.

What charities does HireVibes partner with?

For HireVibes initial launch, Humane Love https://humanelove.org is the first charity to list on HireVibes as a Donation recipient. A school for young kids will be constructed in Africa using donations made from companies who hire in HireVibes alpha release. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9sgXI4Jmttg All donations will be made in HVT and be visible on the EOS blockchain to their account X. In the future, more charities and projects will list as donation recipients.

How will fraud be prevented in the Donation Portal?

To be listed as a donation recipienton HireVibes Dapp, all charities and non-profit organizations must provide an itemized list of goods and services purchased using the donation fund. Charities and non-profit organizations that do not comply will be removed from the Donation Portal. The HireVibes development team have been working on a ‘proof-of-donation’ feature to ensure this transparency. HireVibes Services LTD will take an active role in ensuring the integrity of all organisations listed on the Donation Portal.
