Skyllz Distributed Platform (SDP)

The Skyllz Distributed Platform (SDP) is a distributed and open-source skill validation protocol that enables users to validate and empower skills acquisition, allocation, contextualization and boosting freely within and across Skills Touchpoints Applications (STapps) such as e-learning platforms, networking platforms, portfolio platforms, offline education platforms or any other platform that want to benefit from and add value to the Skyllz ecosystem. The protocol sets the standards to create a cross-platform ecosystem where users acquire, apply or improve a skill on any Skill Touchpoint application (STapp) built on top of it. Users can validate their skills across STapps with Proof-of-Skill (Skyllz reputation) and finance their self-development with Skyllz Tokens.


Disrupting status quo and avoiding biases with a decentralized and anonymized system of  P2P validations of skills thanks to the Raters (that act as oracles between other users and the Smart Contracts)


Proof-of-Skill and Skyllz Tokens are both reflected on the Ethereum Blockchain and are publicly accessible and visible. No single company owns or benefits from the storage of this data anymore. The value is shared among the community in a meritocratic way


Specially designed for developers and game-changers that want to bring and get value from the SDP. Skyllz APIs ( simplify the integration with the SDP to help the community build or enhance powerful and impactful solutions that will change the world
