EchoLink is an open, decentralized, blockchain based application that provides verified education, skill, and work experience information. Echo is a generalized document notary service. In addition to education and work related information, Echo intends to provide verified information for additional industries, such as banking and finance, in the future.
What are the advantages of Echo compared to existing recruiting and professional networking applications?

Information is entered into Echo by university, training organizations, and reputable companies directly, not touched by third parties. Once entered into Echo, individuals can not change their degree information, work experience, or skill level certification randomly.
Besides education and work related information, does EchoLink provide other certification?
EchoLink is built on blockchain technology with a general purpose. Echo tackles the education and recruiting sector as its initial use case. The Echo system can be used for a variety of application and industries, such as notary service, finance, banking, and insurance, etc.
