How the Braintrust network has grown.

MORE growth stats, if you’re so inclined:

  • 126 proposals submitted
  • 10 Talent hired

And for the Talent reading this who are looking to get hired, a great thing to do to get prepared is to improve your Braintrust profile! Check out the profiles for these Talent who have recently been hired (congrats!) and get some inspo for how they share their story:


👪 Community Spotlight.

Did you know that Braintrust hosts a monthly Approved Talent All-Hands where Talent can get updates on who is hiring, how the network is growing, what product features are coming up, and more? Well if you didn’t, this is your lucky day!

Catch the recording from the latest here:

Aside from those important updates, a big focus right now is to recruit more Community Screeners. You know that whole user-owned and user-controlled mantra that Braintrust is famous for? This is the PERFECT example.

Community Screeners are Talent in the Braintrust community who evaluate if new Talent applicants are the right fit for Braintrust. They ensure that any new Talent who join possess the requisite experience, skill set, and communication abilities to suit the jobs that are posted on the network.

But more than that, Community Screeners provide an essential function for decentralization: they ensure that no one person is the gatekeeper of the Braintrust Community. Because user-owned and controlled means it’s Braintrust users who decide how this community grows.

🏛️ Network Infrastructure.

Braintrust is building in public (if you’re not sure what that’s about, you can get up to speed real quick here) and part of this mission is to share publicly how the network is growing. Here is a peek at the current dashboards that share those metrics:

Do you think this is interesting, insightful, transparent, and exciting? Hopefully the answer is yes.

Do you also think it’s limiting, kind of ugly, and off-brand? Hopefully the answer is also yes. (“I thought we retired that logo!” says the Brand Marketing Manager furiously to her keyboard.)

That’s why Infrastructure’s big focus right now is to build out a totally public dashboard that shares all the most important metrics about the Braintrust network, including things like total jobs, total talent, total wallet holders, average project size, and more. So in just a few short weeks, you can know just as much as the CEO about how Braintrust is doing. Isn’t transparency a wonderful thing?

Other ongoing Infra projects that are in development:

  • Governance information page
  • Dispute Resolution
  • Knowledge Base

💻 Product Improvements.

You look like you could use a new wallet. Fortunately, Braintrust has got you covered!

Product is heads down preparing a massive update to the BTRST wallet, which will make keeping track of your tokens, accessing information about how to use them, and learning how to earn rewards a total snap. Coin purse not included.

  • Voting portal, so you can exercise your ownership through voting for changes
  • New Talent onboarding, so new Talent can smoothly integrate into the network
  • Email-only sign ups, so you don’t have to fill out annoying, unnecessary form fields
