The decentralised hiring network, R_Block, today announced the launch of their Coinception Crowdsale. This tokenised careers ecosystem is set to disrupt traditional recruitment networks and  gives workers, recruiters and hiring managers incentives to interact through CVTokens. These tokens can be purchased in the first ever Coinception event.

Pioneers in the recruitment industry, R_Block enables workers to own and earn from their career data using Blockchain technology. The crowdsales are structured to power growth in the network and put faith back into the hiring process. The R_Block token is an ERC20 token and 30% of the total number of CVTokens are now available to purchase.

A host of industry experts have joined R_Block as advisors in their journey to build a semi-anonymous careers network, including Keith TeareAlexandra Kelly and Fabian Vogelsteller. Their experience founding and growing companies puts R_Block in a unique position to grow the network and refresh the way we give references and use career data.

R_Block is also partnering with GoCardless, Booking.com, POA network and Qualcomm, who have tested the DApp.

This Coinception Crowdsale is set to change the future of cryptofunding as it uses a decentralised governance model with milestones to release funds. If milestones are not reached then project contributors will be entitled to refunds.


The tokens are allocated as such:

  • 60% tokens sold in 3 coinception sales
  • 19% tokens retained by the R_Block Foundation
  • 15% team and advisors
  • 6% bounty and advisors

A total of 7.2 million CVTokens are available for distribution, with a hard cap set at $6.89 million.

Token price is set at 1 CVToken = $1.30, with discounts available.

R_Block opens its first Coinception Crowdsale on February 2nd 2018.

R_Block was founded in March 2017, after two years of developing its blockchain-based decentralised anonymous hiring network and referencing tool.  The company’s team of technologists have been focused on using blockchain for the past 5 years, 2 of which reviving referencing to enable job seekers to own and sell their skills data.

R_Block’s vision is to create an eco-system in which workers can easily own, manage and monetise their proven skills and experience data. R_Block will be a decentralised CV/Reference network, bringing references and proven skills into a CV. For the first time ever, workers can own their reference data and monetise it through CV tokens. R_Block’s unique solution to the problems in referencing will be the framework for a tokenised careers eco-system, and will develop to become a self-sovereign identity management technology.

The employment history data itself will become a core part of identity verification. Every Worker has an employment ‘digital fingerprint’ which can be used to uniquely identify them. Years of credibility and performance proof is a powerful identity claim, like no other. Made possible by reference data in the R_Block network.


R_Block will be holding three Coinception events, with aims for these to take place annually.

The first Coincepetion begins on 30th January with 30% of total CVTokens released. Once the network reaches capacity the next Coinception event will be triggered releasing a further 20% and 10% in the final sale. R_Block are holding three Coinception events to try to provide long term value of the CVToken. CVToken’s will be released onto the network in Q1 2018. The R_Block token is an ERC20 token and the platform will be accepting Ether during the token sale.
