Indorse is a revolutionary platform using new models of tokenization and decentralization to change the shape of professional social networking. Unlike traditional platforms, we aim to give back ownership of the data to the member, and allow them to profit from sharing their skills and activities on the platform. Indorse uses internal rewards (Indorse Rewards) and a reputation system (Indorse Score) to incentivize members to add their skills / accomplishments and indorse those of others. Indorse is being developed by the team at Attores, a blockchain company based in Singapore. The founders of Attores are CTO Gaurang Torvekar and CEO David Moskowitz. Gaurang is the co-organiser of the Ethereum Singapore Meetup, while David is the co-organizer of the Bitcoin Singapore Meetup. In 2013 David founded a Bitcoin brokerage which serviced hundreds of clients in Singapore. David successfully exited that business in 2015.
Although our experience with Ethereum goes back to before we founded Attores, we formally began working on Ethereum applications in January 2016, releasing open source code for swaps and forward contracts for exchanging digital assets. Attores currently has a pilot with a Polytechnic college in Singapore for their digital certificate issuance platform along with installation of an Ethereum blockchain on campus. They envision a serverless, decentralized future, where the members will build their profiles and profit from their reputation. This future will need a decentralized platform where others can judge the quality of a person’s profile not just by where they have gone to school, but what they have actually done in their professional and personal lives.
