Businesses are under enormous, relentless pressure to innovate -- or risk extinction. In the next 10 years, about half of the S&P 500 is forecast to be replaced by more agile competitors. The imperative to transition to new ways of doing things is called digital transformation and businesses are spending trillions of dollars to achieve it.
Technology is the key, but also the bottleneck. Businesses lack access to the right skills, while the entrepreneurial potential of existing developers often languishes in siloed and bureaucratic corporate IT departments.
By combining a modern platform, robust developer network and a token- powered economy that unlocks innovation, 8gig is able to propel software development efforts forward in an exponential manner.
8gig allows anybody to easily develop software, faster and better through an extensible, low-code platform and to develop ecosystem that is powered by blockchain. 8gig is a decentralized, self-governing, token-powered network that facilitates the creation of business software by bringing together developers with the users who desire their services. The network offers a way for developers to monetize their skillset by completing ‘gigs’ (building a custom software solution for a paying customer) or submitting extensions to the marketplace (enhancing the features of the 8base Serverless Chassis and offering other users the ability to use that extension for a recurring fee).
