About the Velocity Network Foundation

The Velocity Network Foundation is a non-profit membership organization that aims to empower individuals to gain agency over their verifiable education and career information and build the Internet of Careers®. 

Velocity Network™ and its open-source protocols enable a game-changing, blockchain-based, decentralized utility layer that replaces the outdated, fragmented way talent represents their career reputation across the labor market: resumes and other self-reported online profiles. The Network enables the workforce to claim and stack career and education credentials, store them privately on digital wallets and share them with prospective employers, reducing the time and cost of hiring. The credentials are issued to the individuals by schools, former employers and credentialing or licensing organizations and are tamper-proof and cryptographically secured hence trusted by employers.

Velocity Network™ is a decentralized public utility governed by its members. Membership is open to any organization that wants to participate in governance.
