Who we are

Ledgerback is a community-driven think-tank and analytics cooperative exploring the future of emerging technologies, decentralization and alternative ownership models.

At our core, we are a group of cross-disciplinary blockchain research enthusiasts wanting to become more knowledgeable about this space to resolve current and future issues, and making the space hospitable for newcomers.

Job Description

Ledgerback is seeking a volunteer research analyst to work remotely on Greyscail, our research service, to research and analyze blockchain use-cases in various fields and industries including music, gaming, energy, healthcare, internet, identity management and emerging technologies.

Primarily, you will be examining real world blockchain use-cases and evaluating whether such particular use-cases are or should be successful or unsuccessful, and any recommendations thereto.

We expect that you have had basic exposure to the cryptocurrencies and/or blockchain ecosystem, but this is not a necessary requirement.

What We Are Looking For

  • Proactively sourcing information from blockchain and non-blockchain fields for necessary or helpful information
  • Ability to notice emerging patterns in the markets necessitating blockchain implementations
  • Willingness to travel, network, and speak at conferences
  • Driven by data- and logic-based arguments
  • Good writing skills
  • Willing to collaborate with others

Current Expectations

  • We expect that you will actively spend 5 - 10 hours a week researching and analyzing  blockchain use-cases
  • We expect that you should be able to write a short (~500 - 750 words) article on a blockchain use-case every 2-3 weeks

At the moment, this is a volunteer position, but this may become a paying position depending on the quality of your work.

If you would like to work with us, please send a work  sample to
