Hirematch.io is coming and it plans to upend the job search and hiring industry through the use of the Ethereum blockchain. We recently debuted coverage of this ICO blockchain company with big plans ahead for 2018. Just as Ripple (XRP) and Stellar Lumens (XLM) are doing for the legacy banking industry and IOTA is doing to data access, Hirematch.io wants to join the new generation of the blockchain economy to compete with the large players in the jobs industry.
The blockchain economy is following in the wake of Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC) and Ethereum (ETH). The launch of Bitcoin opened the world's eyes to other ways to transfer funds that were borderless and entirely digital. Litecoin followed with the hopes of being silver to Bitcoin's gold and helping the scale the bitcoin network. Then Ethereum came with the second generation and the first real new feature from the blockchain with smart contracts which promised to expand the dream of Satoshi Nakamoto from simple transactions to complicated digital contracts that could be used to make million-dollar Cryptokitties.
The blockchain economy is growing exponentially with Ripple (XRP), Stellar Lumens (XLM), IOTA all seeing multiple 1000% increases in token and market value based on realistic business plans that can be monetized. Power Ledger (POWR), Cardano (ADA) and Populous (PPT) are part of the next wave looking to break out and nearing project launches. Hirematch.io though is in the early phase and could be ripe for following this new generation with coming news.
Dev Q&A with Hirematch.io
December 1st brought the first Q&A with the Dev team via the Telegram page. The questions were basic but the coin and investors are new. We learned there is an App for IOA and Apple is fully function and in alpha phase testing. Beta testing is set to start in 2018 with launch in Q3 2018. Market research starts after the close of the ICO which has raised close to $1.5 million in Ethereum (ETH) and can be tracked here. The nest Q&A is set for December 15th and can be found on the Hirematch.io Telegram channel.
Join us for our 2nd AMA session this Friday December 15, on our telegram channel: https://t.co/BkZFVK9C0s
The 2 Cofounders Armando and Chad will be streaming live on YouTube to answer all your questions.

Followers and Twitter Feed Growing
Buzz is growing fast. Despite having only 1,300 followers remember that Hirematch.io only really started pushing the Twitter feed around the time we first opened coverage. The followers thogh tell the story as they are not limited to random people. There are the big crypto news agencies and some power players in the crypto industry along with job market professionals starting to catch the news and follow the Twitter page. KR_ICO is an interesting follower in they promote ICOs in Korea. With Korea being the largest market for crypto coins in the world and recently banning ICOs it is an interesting follow. As only ICOs are banned and not actual crypto currency there may be interest and demand in Hirematch into 2018 once the ICO closes in February. Any interest from Korea would be huge for HIRE tokens.
Integrating with Indeed and/or Upwork?
This ia a rumor I am starting although truthfully Hirematch started it. They moderate a Bitcointalk thread with news and a few followers. Recently a question was posed about possible future integration with the power players in the job listing services industry with Indeed and Upwork. Indeed and Upwork represent multi billion dollar market caps and millions of daily visitors and any partnership could launch the value of HIRE just like Ripple and Stellar Lumens. It is a bit early to bank on any announcements but could Hirematch have spilled the beans by mistake?
Notice the question is asked about integration and the answer from the Hirematch rep is “You nailed it!”. There had not been a question in the week before so we can only assume they were responding to the Indeed and Upwork question. Just as Ripple announced a partnership to make transactions between the US and UK and between Korea and Japan sent Ripple up 90% today, any mention of the first partnership would launch HIRE tokens from the ICO price. Head over to the thread and check it out. Hirematch seems pretty active and responds to user questions when posted.
Since we first covered Hirematch.io they have raised a further $400,000 value of Ethereum. They do not mention if the price updates with the price of Ethereum so it is hard to tell just how much is new investment vs appreciation. We took a screenshot of the progress today so we can track in the future the number of HIRE sold and the amount of ETH raised via the ICO. You can click the image to go to the page in real time to check the progress compared to the screen shot.

Remember above all else that Hirematch.io (HIRE) is speculation on a business plan, product and a token. We are trying to find the next Ripple (XRP), Stellar Lumens (XLM), IOTA (MIOTA), or maybe Cardano (ADA) by identifying a new generation blockchain company. The requirements are we are looking for a company trying to bring the block chain technology to a multi-billion dollar business with a solid plan to monetize. The map forward through 2018 is going to be key for Hirematch.io as they work through the Beta launch, continue market research and perhaps start to announce the first partnerships. Hirematch.io plans to list HIRE tokens on multiple exchanges for trading which presents the option for catching the wave up as it builds steam for 2019. Seeing the gains in Litecoin (LTC) and Ripple (XRP) in the last two days would pale in comparison to buying Hirematch.io at the ICO price.
