How was your talk meaningful for Blockchain Expo attendees?
“Attendees learned about the Thor platform, a unique synthesis of blockchain technology and the gig economy. Our product, Odin™ is a contractor management platform that streamlines payments, scheduling, and tax reporting for companies in the gig economy. It’s a working product with real customers that allows you to pay contractors instantly with Thor Lightning Pay™.
Audience members also learned how we’re working to bring the benefits traditionally reserved for full-time employees to independent contractors. This includes access to affordable healthcare through the non-profit Association Health Plan we’re working to offer and access to automated retirement savings.”
What specific tips or insights did attendees get?
“Our presentation gave attendees an inside look at a blockchain company with working products and real customers. They learned how to talk about their blockchain project to companies outside the blockchain world and how to form partnerships. I also discussed the many regulatory challenges of building a compliant blockchain company in the United States. Though they can be intimidating, we believe regulatory hurdles must be taken head on to bring blockchain into the mainstream.”
Why did you decide to give this talk?
“We just launched our first product, Odin™, and partnered with M Health Group to provide access to healthcare for independent contractors in time for open enrollment. Since the convention came right on the heels of these milestones it was the perfect opportunity to share our project with the world—something we couldn’t pass up.”
