Based on the NEM blockchain, Empleos is a project that hopes to change the online recruiting market by incentivizing people who are seeking employment while saving businesses time and money.


  • The machine learning keyword and sentence semantic functions on Empleos platform have the potential to increase the transparency of the employment process.
  • The platform may be intriguing to employers and recruiters because it can make the employment process quicker and more cost-efficient.

  • Cons

  • Big companies in the market such as LinkedIn and Indeed may make it hard for Empleos to break through. While Empleos can distinguish itself from these companies through its blockchain-based platform, it is uncertain whether or not it will be able to compete with these more well-known companies.

    • This project has an MVP with a fairly intuitive user interface. The MVP allows users to search for jobs by area code, as well as view and apply for jobs.
    • PLEO is a utility token that is used for all internal platform payments. As soon as the platform is launched, employers can use the token to access candidate profiles.
    • Tokens will be used by the platform for the creation of the platform, operating costs, and acquisition costs.
    • Token Supply: 140,000,000 PLEO

    • Empleos allows employers and recruiters to post job listings on the platform as long as they have PLEO in their account. Additionally, Empleos platform offers premium placement for job candidates and employers. For people seeking employment, prioritized placement in search results would cost 2 PLEO. For employers, advanced analytics would cost 2 PLEO.
