Hundreds of ethical hackers in defense of Talent Protocol blockchain

So that investments in the best digital talents careers around the world are safer

The new Talent Protocol network, for high-potential talents who aim to create or contribute to innovative projects, has just been released.

With the mission to help the next generation of talents achieve success and fulfillment by enabling collective careers1, Talent Protocol, which now has around 340 talent tokens from all around the world, has just announced a new version of the platform after a testing phase performed by WhiteJar, the first community of ethical hackers in Italy made up of only certified professionals.

The role of WhiteJar

This way, the community of ethical hackers was able to guarantee the security of Talent Protocol on Web3, being WhiteJar among the very few Italian companies that offer cybersecurity services also in the blockchain sector.

"We started collaborating with Talent Protocol in November 2021 to identify any system flaws and we quickly identified the first vulnerabilities - explains Aldo Del Bo', Head of Cybersecurity at WhiteJar. - Thanks to our working model, based on collective and widespread intelligence, we were able to identify vulnerabilities that were not found with traditional Pen Tests. Thanks to our work, Talent Protocol was able to verify if what had been planned up to that moment was safe and continue with the next steps of its business plan".


Talent Protocol: a talent platform in which we can all become supporters

With an open-source code and a completely free platform, Talent Protocol - thanks to the work done by the WhiteJar Ethical Hackers community - was able to present a new version of the website with a renewed offer and design. Talent Protocol’s season 1 brought to life a multiplayer reality on Web3 (where the first supporters are rewarded and success is shared). The project is now on season 2, which brings NFTs, a new user interface, public profiles, career goals, and the launch on a second blockchain (Polygon).

Through Talent Protocol, high-potential talent from around the world can launch their token, allowing anyone to vouch for their careers, and transform their network into a community invested in their success.

“We believe that talent is abundant, however contradictory opinions we might have heard. The focus lies upon visibility and opportunity, and that’s what we’re trying to solve through social tokens”, one of the Portuguese co-founders Pedro Oliveira explains.

“Building in such a new space as Web3 means a lot of challenges. Security is one of them and building a bulletproof network since day one is a major concern for us”, explains Francisco Leal, Chief Product Officer at Talent Protocol. “Our collaboration with WhiteJar was key to settle the next steps for us”.
