Bitcoin is frequently compared to gold. But it’s not an either/or proposition… and I’ll tell you why. Indeed, gold and bitcoin are the only two widely distributed, decentralized methods of exchanging value as currency. There is no central authority issuance like there is with U.S. dollars or any other fiat currency.

Anuj Agrawal, 35, has dabbled in the recruitment industry since 2005. With 100 employees and two offices in Noida and Bengaluru, his firm Zyoin offers recruitment and consultancy services to over 300 companies, including Amazon, Goibibo, Play Games and PayU. But there were some constant niggles. Like parsing resumes. With no universal template around which resumes are written and structured, mining and matching thousands with job positions was a huge task. Available parsing technologies were basic and didn’t sort and match well. Also, the resumes in their database would often get dated.
