Platform economy, blockchain and their impact on human resources and the regulatory framework of labor relations (Economía de plataformas, blockchain y su impacto en los recursos humanos y en el marco regulatorio de las relaciones laborales)

The platform economy is the result of a technological environment in which the availability and generalization of a set of interacting technologies gives rise to and opens the possibility of generating new types of business that disrupt the classical conception of work. All actors in the platform economy demand and offer work, some adapting it to their productive regime and others to their lifestyle and interests, but they do so following dynamics radically different from the conventional ones.

On the other hand, Blockchain, like all the technologies that have been analysed in the course of the project, is not a purely fashionable technology but a technology that has a huge transforming potential. Based on what many "technologists" predict, it will be necessary to pay attention to how systems supported by this technology can be disruptors of business models, and although at a very early stage of maturation, the impact that may have to human resources and labour relations.
