Interview with Working Traveller
BitcoinChaser: What kind of problem, market deficiency or opportunity inspired you to launch your project?
Working Traveller: The cv/resume system is the same as when I left school in 1980, we need ‘real work experience references’ for young people who want to get on and get a good job. The other point that inspired me is I built a hotel in the Sahara desert and the plumber finally turned up and did not know which way up the toilet should point. I saw the need for matchmaking skills traveling around the world – with the millions of small businesses like the one i needed in the short term.
BC: How will your project address this problem, market deficiency or opportunity in a unique way?
WT: Working Traveller matches up travellers with the skills these small businesses need when they are coming to their country through our search database. No other service offers this for free.
BC: How do you think that competition will develop following your ICO?
WT: There will be the “me too” offerings but we have several things in place like a 50,000 page wiki to insure we will be hard to beat. There is space as always for 3/4 good players, currently we are the only ones. But being free will enable us to get to critical mass within one traveller season and then we need to hold on to that position by constantly adding value and listening to our users needs. I have a hotel that uses WT volunteers so I am in tune with the needs from both sides.
BC: For all those who have read your white paper (pdf) and are still on the fence about contributing to your ICO, what can you tell them that could lead them to buy into your project?
WT: Early investors did not get Airbnb (valued at $30b), Uber took 7 years to be understood ( valued at $69b). Think about it – how many young people do you know would like to travel, learn new skills and gain work references that cannot be forged as they are registered on the blockchain – and once they have some good reference get paid to work their way around the world? Maybe 25% – possibly more than the number who might use Airbnb or Uber. Do a quick test, ask 10 of your friends and see for yourself.
