Gems, is a next generation type of protocol for contracting workers to perform micro tasks.


The only way that a business or concept is going to have longevity is if that business or concept is one that solves a problems, and is also one that is going to be of interest to a large number of people, users, consumers and businesses.

What Gems have based their entire concept around is the micro tasks market sector. Many people these days are being paid to perform a very wide and diverse range of different tasks online and they are being paid for doing so.

Those tasks could be anything from writing reviews of a product they have bought or used or giving their input and filling in questionnaires and the suchlike.

However, they do not get paid very much for their time and effort, and the companies that are paying them often go through just one of two companies or brokers that match them up with the people doing micro tasks.

As such that middleman type of brokers and companies get a large chunk of the payment made by companies and the only give a small percentage of that payment to the people ding micro tasks.

The Gems services are going to remove the middleman from the micro tasks market sector and as such companies using their service will pay less and the people doing those micro tasks will get paid more.

However, for you to make a well balanced decision in regards to whether their tokens are going to be worth either a short or long term investment, you will need to take a look a how their ICO was initially structured and whether their tokens are increasing in value, and just how many businesses and users are taking up their concept and embracing it too.

In regards to just how the Gems ICO was designed and structured, be aware that the ICO closed on the 16th of February 2018.
