  • Product idea:

While interesting, we do not expect the Hire Match platform to gain any serious traction between recruiters and job seekers.

  • Product status/stage:

No working prototype, 8 commits and 1 branch of code on Github. 

  • Business model relationship and value flow:

The value of tokens is inside the Hire Match platform and there are no mentions of them being able to do anything else outside their own platform.

  • Function/utility of the token:

From the white paper:



The token economy is a reward system used to reward a target behavior. [6]

(HIRE) is an ERC20 token that represents partial ownership and fuel for the HireMatch job network. The primary usage of the token is to incentivize user agents to find, recommend

and verify applicants for job listings. Agents are paid in (HIRE) via execution of a smart contract, when recommending and validating applicants and/or when a referred applicant is hired. (HIRE) is the primary and only fuel for driving the HireMatch employee recruitment

platform. We will issue 100,000,000 (HIRE) one time only and will never issue any more.

Verdict: Could be as well done with Ethereum or Bitcoin.


  • Market size


Global staffing and recruiting industry sales reached $428 billion in 2016, so the market is huge. However, we do not believe it is realistic that Hire Match can gain any meaningful market share in light of strong incumbent and many similar ICOs on the market.
