What Is Gems
Gems is a decentralized blockchain based Mechanical Turk that works on a protocol used for getting workers into a contract through which micro tasks can be done. At Gems, workers put tokens on a stake so their task may get validated enabling them to have a trusted reusable score. This mechanism helps the network be more cost-effective as well as democratized being accessible to scalable workers that are proficient to perform micro-tasks.
Gems is a blockchain based decentralized network that enables organizations to deploy small or micro-task miners making the network operations more scalable and cost-effective. With the help of micro workers staking tokens and task validation mechanism Gems enable miners to have an entrusted reusable score followed by enforcement of compliance to network participants. The network also helps to create various platforms based on gems protocol. The best part is that those platforms do not have an intrinsic fee. This helps to broaden the prospect of the supply of labor and reduce market inefficiencies. The Gems network allows any decentralized applications to use dynamic as well as the cost-effective scalable workforce.
How Do Gems Work?
It is not a myth that millions of people around the world earn handsome amount of money by completing micro tasks online. These micro tasks often include human’s intelligence such as identifying and enabling photos or sometimes to complete a task that might be a small part of some big unified project such as deep learning. It is estimated that currently micro-task performers are being overpaid by five hundred to fifteen hundred percent, leaving workers to earn nothing. This is because of market inefficiency that is driven by centralized platforms including CrowdFlower and Amazon Mechanical Turk.
Gems work on a completely different protocol. With Gems, everyone can access the pool of workers without having to worry about work verification and payments. Gems ensure task accuracy and completion through its token staking and useable score mechanism. The gems network also reduces the fee to almost zero and allows every user to access the gems network with a supported device that is connected to the internet.

Invest In Gems
After a careful review of the ICO, we hereby conclude that Gems should have come up with more detail. Currently, we are not satisfied with the overall image of the ICO. We believe the ICO objective is workable but needed sound deployment strategy. There is no information available concerning how much funds have been raised by the ICO successfully. We also couldn’t find many people being the team members of the ICO. We would like to suggest people should complete their thorough research on the ICO before they actually decide to invest in Gems.
