High fragmentation of tools and services, user dissatisfaction and massive process inefficiencies are byproducts of the current employment architecture.

A tapestry of\nblockchain technology, cloud technology and cooperative legal frameworks are needed to execute the vision. Also being employed is a for-profit model which shares value creation (revenue and network value) with all network stakeholders and\nincentivizes contributors to collaborate for the long-game. Opolis’ creation of Decentralized Employment Organizations (DEOs), or Employment Guilds, will allow for sustainable mutuality between employers and employees.\t\n"}]}
