GRAIN processes labor contracts on the blockchain and provides an instant payment mechanism for compensating workers. GRAIN reinvents the way we work, and lets workers share in the success of the platform.

The GRAIN blockchain simplifies labor contracts by processing the work agreement through a smart contract. At the same time, the ecosystem introduces a compliant, prompt and fair payment mechanism, all while maintaining full security. The third and final part is the introduction of a digital savings account for workers who are being contracted through the system, which can also be used to pay into pension or for shorter-term needs.

To provide a viable solution for work agreements around the world, GRAIN will be flexible enough to comply with any regulations related to labor. To protect both sides of the transaction, GRAIN’s protocol also contains a special mechanism for handling the potential volatility of cryptocurrency.

Using the GRAIN blockchain opens up possibilities for staffing agencies, payrollers, HR system developers, accounting software and many others. It allows organizations to utilize objectively measurable and transparent labor contracts while substantially lowering overhead costs of work agreements.

In short, GRAIN provides the 100-billion-euro payroll industry (as determined by the annual reports for the top twenty companies) with a transparent, secure and democratic ecosystem for labor by upgrading the existing system to one based on the sharing principle.

This project is a very interesting alternative to the mainstream ICO: Their focus is to disrupt the HR and payroll market. The team has lots of experience in the sector, and the whitepaper shows a clear path how the team will go for their goals

Clarity in communication needs to be improved. It's hard to understand what the project does exactly, what is the target market, how to break into it, what is customer feedback from the private beta, what are the alternative solutions etc. I sense that the answers are there, but it doesn't come across clearly so it should be fairly easy to fix. Maybe hire a communication specialist? Best of luck!
